How to Fix F30 Error on Fisher and Paykel Dishwasher

It’s been calculated that your dishwasher can save you more than 230 hours every year! That’s almost 10 days. However, your dishwasher can only save you time if it’s working well. 

A damaged or faulty dishwasher can waste both water and energy in addition to being a major time suck. So, if you’re seeing errors on your dishwasher or it’s not leaving your dishes squeaky clean, it’s time to get your hands dirty and fix it.

One of the most common problems you’re likely to see is the F30 error on a Fisher and Paykel dishwasher. It’s also fairly straightforward to fix, as long as there are no underlying issues. Read on to learn how to do it!

The F30 Error on a Fisher and Paykel Dishwasher

The F30 error code signifies that the flood switch on your machine has been activated. This indicates a problem with water drainage.


This could be a one-off issue, or it could be a symptom of something deeper. For example, if the drain hose is bent or blocked, it could cause dishwasher problems like flooding. 


You can prevent this issue from coming up with regular dishwasher maintenance and care. Yet, sometimes it will still pop up despite your best efforts! 


Fix the F30 Dishwasher Error Code

If this is the first time you’re seeing the F30 error, try turning the dishwasher on and off and giving it time to reset and drain.


First, press the power button once to stop the beeping. Then, press it again to turn off the machine. After a few minutes, press it a third time to turn the dishwasher back on.


If the error is still there, or if it returns, you’ll need to drain the water flooded in your dishwasher.


You’ll have to disconnect the dishwasher and tilt it backwards at a 45-degree angle. This will force the water to drain and reset the flood switch. Leave it in this position overnight to allow it to drain and air dry. 


It’s worth noting that this process can void your warranty or damage the machine further, so if you get to this point, it’s worth calling a professional for dishwasher repairs. Similarly, if you do try it and the error still doesn’t go away, or if it comes back again, you’ll need to call a professional to diagnose and repair your machine.


Most likely, you’ll have to get the drain hose cleaned, repaired, or replaced. However, if there’s another cause, a dishwasher repairman can diagnose it and fix it quickly.
