Fisher Paykel sells an improved, black colored set of lit lifting assemblies, better than the white ones installed. If the lid does not clear when you cycle the empty drawer (12 minutes), then you need to order and install all four lifting/sealing assemblies and change them out. With both drawers removed, you can see the four plastic assemblies, two on each side of the empty dishwasher housing.

It is probably the seal that is not lifting all the way after the dishwasher completes it cycles. My understanding is the motor needs to be replaced if the problem persists. A good test is to reset the breaker on the dishwasher and see if this corrects the problem temporarily.

Bummer... Doug Thurman,

Just a guess here... but what-ever used to hold that
rail... (from hanging) is NOW most likely blocking the
smooth egress of your (very-same-side) fully
EXTENDED slide... Left?

(50 x 50 chance I'm right)...

I'm going to suggest something usually considered criminal
(assuming the frig is empty (tipping compressors = BAD)).

- use masking take to secure your doors from damage

- make sure all pans (defrost), drawers & trays are dry.

- lay the frig on the MALFUNCTIONING (left) slide side
on a thick quilt or movers blanket
(this will allow the obstruction to clear the slide).

Release the latch and fully extract the drawer to allow proper re-attachment of the slide rail..

I did find "SEARS" INSTRUCTIONS (the ONLY reason I would ever again go back to SEARspartsdirect)... for ice-maker installation... I expected to be able to find useable detail...
but ALAS... the pictures were terribly small...

Your part should cost under $60... but I found no direct video help in the Parts houses (I will also place a couple at the bottom)

Try going to the links below...

Hope this helps.

Kenmore refrigerator model # 596.75522400 bottom frizer. Frizer works ok but refrigeratot does no get cold.

If the freezer is cold, it is probably the evaporator fan motor or the damper. The damper is the easiest to check.

Inside the refrigerator compartment, top, center, back is a small plastic grill that snaps out of a larger plastic housing. Tug gently from the bottom edge. You should see a small damper door. If it is closed, push it open. If you feel a flow of air, the fan motor is good and the problem probably has something to do with the damper not opening. If you do not feel the flow of air, it is probably the evaporator fan motor.

If it is likely the damper, you can prop it open to get the refrigerator compartment cold again until you can solve the damper problem. I have not had to solve this problem yet, so good luck.

I've had problems with evaporator motors in every Kenmore appliance I've owned. So, it is probably the evaporator fan motor. The motor is just above the evaporator coils inside the freezer compartment.
Lift out the baskets and lift off the drawer front. Remove the drawer slide mechanism buy depressing a single plastic clip on each side as you pull the slide forward.

Top drawer is hanging up on something

The only way to fix this is get the drawer out by

1 Open the drawer fully.
2 Depress the right-hand tub clip and push it back about 30mm (1
inch). Repeat for the left-hand side.
3 The tub may now be lifted up off the drawer runners.
4 Slide both runners back into the product.
5 Refit in reverse manner.

That way you can get access to the top seal - which is called the lid.

You will have to see how much of the lid is still left behind hanging on the top.

To remove lid
1 Remove tub assembly as per earlier instructions
2 On the right-hand side of the lid release the two tabs that clip the lid
to the yoke. Repeat for the left-hand side.
3 The lid is now free to slide out of the chassis.
4 Refit in the reverse manner taking care that the lid is fitted the
correct way around. The front is indicated on the top of the lid.

If the whole lid is intact then it may be a matter of fitting it back. Othwerwise you will get one from fisher and paykel parts

To fit the lid back you will have to check if the actuator yokes are not broken. In which case you will have to take these out and replace with the new one. (comes as part of lid kit if you buy it).

Remove Yoke
1 Remove the lid as per instructions above.
2 Release the lid actuator connecting arm from the bottom of the yoke
by squeezing the two tabs towards each other.
3 Slide the front of the yoke downwards at an angle until it moves out
of the track in the rear of the trim, and is clear of the chassis flange.
4 Refit in the reverse manner taking care that the yoke is the correct
way around.

When putting back you will need to align the lid actuator motors on both sides correctly so that the yoke moves the same distance when activated. Otherwise the lid will have a scew.

Hope all this helps. If unsure you will need to contact a technician.

My fisher and parkel dishwasher keeps displaying F1

The best thing to do is turn the power off ,remove the bottom drawer by pushing in the clips on side of the drawer ,just below the round plugs. The clips are attached to runners, push them back to release the drawer and ( after taking out the rack and spray arm) put the drawer on its r.h.side. Mop up the all water in the base, then remove the cover that goes over the back L.h. corner, this will expose the mains/flood switch board ( make sure you dry the roof of the drawer before you take the cover off , or water can drip onto the board .....not a good thing!!!yikes.gif).

To remove the cover, push in the clip in the middle front edge of the cover with a flat blade screwdriverand slide the cover foward a bit, then put the screwdriver under the clip and twist up, the cover should now pull off to the right. Spend a couple of minutes drying the board with a hair dryer and mop up any remaining water ( be careful of the board again). Refit the cover and switch back on ( you shouldn't need to force the cover on, just slide it on from right to left , but you may have to push down the cover just above the clip to get it to lock once it is located correctly). If it doesn't F1 again ,all good, if it does , remove cover and redry, and repeat until it doesn't.

To refit drawer, slide out L.h. rail and sit drawer on it, then lift right side of drawer and slide out other rail and sit other side down. If the rails don't want to slide foward and lock, lift the drawer at the front while sliding the rail fowarduntil the front edge of the rail is just at the clipping gap at the side of the drawer, then make sure the drawer is sitting down firmly on the rails and pull clips foward to lock. If the drawer has been clipped in correctly it will slide in and out nicely, if not , look at the back edge of the drawer when it is fully open to see where it is sitting too high and rectify by refitting the rail on the affected side/sides. By this point if any part of the bottom drawer was broken ,you would have seen it. Also check the top drawer by releasing it and pulling it foward,shine torch in and have a good look.

Hopefully it won't leak again unless ther is a faulty part not visible to the nakedshock.gif eye, check by running one drawer for a couple of minutes, stop the cycle and open the drawer and check the outsides for water ( don't be too worried if you see water in the bottom between the drawers as it will drip from the roof, unless the drain or fill hoses are split ) ,if ok, run the other drawer and check.

Remember, if you get to a point where you don't feel confident with what you doing or you think you might break something, leave it and call a professional to do the job, you may save money in the long run and if you going to expose wires or connections always switch off and unplug before removing the cover, you dont know whats underneathxbones.gif.

We have a 1988 hi lo bonvogage camper and we think we may have burned out the water heater we were told that there may be a reset switch but we can't get to the box without knowing how to remove the bottom...

Depending on what mechanism it slides on under drawer, try sliding your finger up under drawer if guide in center, and follow guide to drawer, then push up on piece of nylon catch where your finger meets drawer, or slide a pen or something in there, and it should release to pull drawer out. If not that type, please describe what drawer rides on & we can figure it out from there.

Fisher and Paykel double drawer dishwasher

Hi. I am a plumber who has had this problem before. To reset the flood switches you need to remove the bottom dish drawer to be able to access the reset buttons. To remove the drawer you press in the rectangle buttons and slide them back under the drawer, they are located right behind the front panel at the bottom of the drawer. It may help to have someone help hold the drawer for you. Once they are slid back all the way place the bottom drawer on the floor to the left side of the washer as you look at it. This will give you the access you need. Lie down on the floor so you can see in the bottom. There you will see a white coloured plastic box on each side, one is for the top drawer the other is for the bottom drawer. Make sure the power is off to the dishwasher. Place your finger underneath the box and you will feel a small pin/lever. This is attached to the magnetic flood switch and resets it when you click it one way and then the other. Once you have done this turn the machine back on before you put in the bottom drawer as if it does not work then you will need to activate it maybe a couple of times. Oncw the F1 alarm disappears you are good to go. Place the drawer back in the opposite way to removal. Slide one rack forward and rest the drawer on it. Then slide the other side out and it will snap lock into position. This procedure literally takes me about 3 minutes and should save you about $120 for a serviceman to come out. The principal is the same on all dishwashers its just a matter of locating the reset switch. All the best and save yourselves a fortune.
