913T Dishwasher Stops after 10 seconds

Recently my Fisher & Paykel 913T Dishwasher has started beeping and stopping about 10 seconds into the cycle. At the beginning, it seemed to do it only when the mains power had been disconnected (kitchen renovation, so it has happened a few times). Now, it does it everytime I wish to use it. To start it, I need to just press power and start a bunch of times until it finally worked. Sometimes the beep is a short on, sometimes a longer sustained one, perhaps 5 seconds. It seems to do it more on Normal Wash than Eco Wash.

913T is a very old model (1996), I have one, I'm not a repairer, I have the same fault. It doesn't have drawers or infrared or a display.
I've just shortened the ribbon cable, which had pinch damage at the door close pinch point. I used a male & female ribbon squeeze connector pair to make a good clean joint. With the cable fault it wasn't even starting the drain cycle. Now it does start, but then long beeps, and I suspect it's detecting a fault with the motor or a sensor or faulty wire, and is halting.
I've found running the rinse cycle first then allows the main wash cycle to run, no longer stopping at 10 seconds (after the initial drain), just as the first power wash commences.

SOURCE: My Fisher and Paykel dishwasher will not keep running.

It may be that the DW thinks the drawer may have been pulled open. On the right side, near the top. there are two light pipes on the drawer. One sends an infrared beam of light to a reflective area on the cabinet, the other receives this light. This is how the drawer senses whether the door is open or closed. Wipe these areas with a clean dry cloth...Give it a try

SOURCE: Fisher Paykel double drawer dishwasher DS6031

you have an overflow leak problem....shut off circuit breaker or pull fuse....let it dry out for up to 4 days; hopefully overnight; peak under dryer and feel metal drip pan and if wet you might be able to dry with a hair dryer...WHY? the lid did not seal when you put cycle on...the lid lowers and you had something..typically too bid glasses on second shelf that was above the seal lip of the tub...stack correctly after this and no worries...

SOURCE: F4 error fisher & paykel nautilus dishwasher

F4 is a heating error- dishwasher has not reached temperature in allocated time. If intermittent fault, problem is usually with electronic board, which has temperature sensor attached. Sometimes the wiring to the control board burns out and can give intermittent false readings causing F4 error. Disconnect from power, remove front panel (4 screws down each side). You can now see wiring going to control board- check for burnt wires. Also check temperature sensor (small square with two purple wires) is stuck to inner door panel- if this is not stuck to inner panel, temperature sensor will not work properly. If in any doubt, call in the experts!!

SOURCE: Have the Fisher & Paykel single drawer

It is very likely the thermal fuse has blown or the power supply board has had it. Either way the power to the controller and the drawer lid seal motors is cut off. This is why the drawer is in locked state as the motors have seized.

You have no choice but to force open the drawer to get access to the affected parts. Make sure the mains power to dishwasher is turned off as the base will be live.

Replacing the power board is easy but if the thermal fuse is blown then you are up for a large cost as it is integral in the heating element.

Refer this document for details of parts and location. Heater is item 17 on page 18 and powerboard is item 15 on page 13. (the document is for double drawer model but it just doubles up on parts)

You can get a rough idea of the parts cost from this site. Depends where you live.

Hope you are able to get it fixed.

Hello. Recently my fisher &PAkel smart drive 703 was removed from its connections as we renovated our laundry. When it was reconnected by our tiler, it stopped working properly. This is what hap


Need to know the error code to help you. When it beeps, take note of the top row of lights & count from right to left. Tell me exactly which lights are on & which are off. Also, tell me if any other lights are blinking. The only thing the tiler would of disconnected are the inlet water hoses. Check that the hose from the cold tap is on the cold inlet & hot tap is on the hot inlet. Marked C & H on back of panel.

Have a Fisher & Paykel two drawer built in, each drawer will start running, but stops many times thru the cycle and starts beeping.


The dishdrawer is a very sophisticated dishwasher and is very sensitive to dirt collecting inside and in the drain hoses. My suggestion would be to first clean the drawers from inside with damp cloth, especially around the top panel. Buy Finish dishwasher cleaning kit (one for each drawer) from the supermarket. Select longest cycel on dishwasher and run each drawer with the cleaning kit inside as per instructions on the kit.
See if this makes any difference.

Starts and stops


A failed inlet valve is not uncommon in F&P machines. The hot valve is different to the cold one, so don't exchange them. Not a big job for a tech to do in-laundry. Good luck....Nomess

Fisher paykel DD603 top drawer starts cycle then stops and beeps and doesn't go thru cycle


When it stops and beeps can you tell me all lights that are on when you open the drawer cheers. also check to see if the water in the tub is hot if not you have a heating issue. either a faulty element or Mtr Controller module. try swapping the Mtr Controller module (computer board) from the top drawer to the bottom drawer and see if that moves the fault. cheers
