Have you cleaned the drain filter ? If not, clean that ( it is beneath the rack where the utensil bin is normally positioned and accessible by lifting up the plastic door..If that is clogged up then your drain flow will be restricted. Also, check to make sure the drain line is not restricted ( pinced or clogged). .And yes , the drain is pumped out. If these tips do not get you going, please write back and let me know.. will help get your dw going ...

    I am having the same problem with the bottom drawer. Top drains just fine. I cleaned the drain filter and the hose and it still won't drain. I had a service tech come out and he couldnt figure it out either...he thinks its the "computer" and the "sensor" and he wants me to order new ones - cost is like $210! I really don;t think it's the computer...the electronics seem to work fine...any ideas? Before this all started, a fork fell down and stopped the arm from rotating...then I got the F1 flood warning. I cleaned the water out, did the hair dryer thing and then tried to run it...I then got a drain with line through it error sign (U1). Now I can;t get it to work and drain!! Please help!

Fisher paykel dishdrawer bottom drawer washes fine leaves water in top drawer


At some point the two drawers individual drain hoses are joined using a "Y' type connector. Check this, and everything beyond this point for restrictions or blockage. It sounds like the bottom drawer is pumping its drain water out normally, but some of that water is backing up to the upper drawer. This is an installation or plumbing problem that is external of the dishdrawers.

The time on now shows 107 instead of 127 min. drawer Fisher & Pakel double


your dishdrawer is in ECO mode. Press the ECO button on the program panel on top of drawer lid. This should restore the Heavy wash time to 127min.

Appliance: Fisher&Paykel DD603 Draining


You may want to check up if the water collects in the bottom drawer when the top drawer is in wash cycle (ie, taking water from the inlet) or during the drain cycle when it is draining water out. Leave the bottom drawer open and check while the top drawer is running.

My fisher paykel DD S03SS dishwasher leaks from the top, & drain


The drawers should not leak unless there is a problem with the vacuum seal. Try cleaning the edges of the doors and operate. You should feel the vacuum is holding the doors. The seals could be faulty or vacuum system may be faulty.

About not draining completely - a possibility is the common drain hose after the U adapter being clogged. Remove the clamp and pass a flexible wire coat hanger towards the main drain pipe. If both drawers are not draining then it is unlikely the drain hose between the U clamp and the dishwasher is clogged. Also make sure the height of inlet water pipe and drain outlet is as specified in the installation manual

Top drawer is draining into bottom drawer and bottom drawer is draining into top drawer


Hi, Make sure that the drain hoses are looped at least as high as the top washing part. With no loop the water is free to pump from one drawer to the other. I simply tied the hoses up under the sink with twist ties. That was over 2 years ago and haven't had the problem since. Good luck!

Fisher&Paykel DW60 drain pump is blocked.


Check the drain hoses by removing the dishdrawers from the machine and pulling on the hoses. I installed a Fisher Paykel DD602 about a month ago and the bottom drawer was not draining. I removed the drawer and freed up the drain hose and the machine worked fine.

Comment posted on Feb 07, 2009 there should be tabs on the sides of the drawers at the sliders near the front of the machine.

F1 is a flood code meaning excessive amounts of water have collected on the bottom catch basin. If a flood condition is detected, both draws will activate the drain motors and flash F1. Remove the bottom drawer and dry the catch basin.
There are three possible scenarios; 1. Defective lid motor(s)...Each drawer has two lid motors that pull the lid tight to the drawer when the cycle is started. (this was very common on early models) 2. Something too tall was placed in the drawer preventing the lid from closing completely. OR 3. (only seen this once) the drain hose developed a crack causing water to leak only when draining. Hope this helps....
