Tip & How-To about Fisher and Paykel Dishwashers

How to take dishwashing liquid out of aid dispenser

I read a few tips on this site about the above problem.
Then rang Fischer and Paykel. My dishwasher is a two drawer.
They suggested using chux rolled up and pushing down aid dispenser.
After pulling out, throw out and keep doing this with a fresh rolled up piece of chux.
I did it about three times. Then I slowy poured some water in. Used fresh chux rolled up. Repeated the process a couple of times. Then repeated with dry chux, till it was all dry as much as possible. Then I poured half a cup of white vinegar onto the bottom of dishwasher and did a rinse cycle, checking for foam, every now and again.
The white vinegar stops the foam.
All seemed good.
Then I did an empty full wash "test". All good at the end. No froth at all during cycle.
After the "test" wash, I filled the aid dispenser with "rinse aid" not dishwashing liquid.

All up it took me about 20 minutes.
Thought I would pass on. And don't panic, (like I did). The woman at Fischer and Paykel was so helpful and said it is a common thing, so I didn't feel so bad.

keep blowing fuses


This means there is water collected on the base of the dishwasher cabinet under the bottom drawer. You will need to disconnect the dishwasher mains plug and take the bottom drawer out to dry the base out. Follow instructions in this manual (page 7 step 2) to remove the drawer.

fischer and paykel drawer dishwasher has no power to drawer, power at outlet, was flashing F1 prior to shutting down, thanks


If you have a double drawer unit then please confirm what is happening with the other drawer. Most likely the base of the dishwasher under the bottom drawer has flooded and brought down the power with it. The power board sits under the bottom drawer. BE CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH THE DISHWASHER BEFORE SWITCHING OFF THE MAINS POWER SUPPLY TO THE DISHWASHER AS THE CIRCUIT MAY BE LIVE AND GIVE A SHOCK. You will have to take the bottom drawer out and see what is happening under it.
