Blockage (i think) top draw - seal orginally locking draw

Hi,

the top draw was 'stuck' after gently pulling it out - i realised that the top seal (that drops down when the draw shuts) was locking down too soon and not realising. I pressed the 'wash button' to see if this reset the problem. It did, however the draw wont wash now, it makes some noise then stops. Taking out all the racks and drain at the bottom there is water sitting in the bottom and not going into the water pipe. i'm assuming there may be a blockage which is stopping the machine from working. there are no error massages appearing on screen. Am I right, and if so, how do I unblock it? Or is it something else I need to get a tech to fix??

the bottom draw is fine.

After you remove the rack you can also remove the large stainless cover( it unscrews, and then under that id the rotor assy , it also unscrews, giving you access to the ports that would be blocked if any, you can refer to your manual for procedure of un-installing above parts if need be, it is something the homeowner is actually advised to do instead of calling for service

DD603 top draw cycle getting stuck on 73min??????


Normally if you started the rinse cycle with water already in the base of the dishwasher it will immediately go into circulating the water through the wash arms. Do you hear the wash arms running when the washer is stuck at 11mins? Also when the washer is stuck at 73 mins are the wash arms running all the time or do you hear the pump operate at some stage?
If you have the dishwasher manual available make sure the water pressure setting is at HI or LO depending on your rated mains water pressure.

My fisher&paykel 2 double dish washer works just fine no codes come up at but beeps from top one while running and even if it is not in use any time drawer is shut it beeps


If you find the dish wash makes the noise like the draw has been open and its mainly at night you most likely have cockaroaches. The dishdraws have infared sensors to tell it that the draw is open which works like a beam of light. When the beam of light is broken the draw thinks its open. When a cockie runs across the beam it blocks the light and the draw thinks its open. Get a good qulity surface spray and spray right around the door as they enjoy living near the warm CPU board. Most people don't realise they have cockies there untill i pull the draw cover off and show them.

Hi all the lights are flasing and top draw is stuck on my DD605 have switched on and off at the plug but still draw will only open if you really pull it -bottomdraw fine - any thoughts?


the lid that closes down to seal the drawer is stuck down. two things will cause this, either the lid motors or the main board that controls them. it is a simple enough repair but with these dishwasher drawers it is better to get a professional out to fix it. all parts twist and click on and are very easy broke giving you extra cost.

Dishwasher lid stuck


the lids on dishdrawers are pulled down and sealed by lid activaters. there r two types, the screw type and the magnetic solonoid type. the reason your draw gets stuck is your lid activator is not releasing. there are 2 reasons for this 1st- 1 or both activators are faulty. 2nd the lid activator control board is faulty, which is located under the bottom drawer.pull the draw out and see if u can see if the lid is down on 1 side or both sides.please reply 4 more help.

I cannot open the draw something is stuck in it


Your dishwasher has a top lid to seal the tube when it in operation. The seal mode is achieved by 2 actuator valves on both side of the housing pulling your top lid down. Model from 603 to current actuators are electric motor. For previous models they are vacuum pump activation.
When the actuators are bad they are either not pulling down the top lid causing a leak, or not releasing top lid back to its original position causing the lid stuck and the tub can not be pulled out as in your case.
Let's go to diagnostic test mode to see if you can retrieve the the actuator hence the tube out.
1- Press Lock button and start/pause key until the display showing up.
2- Press Power to show HO.
3- Press start button to advance the display until you see LD or LS, if you pass, keep doing it to get it back in a loop.
4- When at LD or LS, press lock to turn on, press a agin to turn off.
5- Listen to the sound of Actuators and at the same time, try to pull the tube out.
6- When it is done, just press the Power button to get out od the diagnstic mode.
7- If you are lucky, if just the seal to replace then it is easier than repalcing the actuators. Good luck.

Try dropping something like marbles into the hose and shake it up and down, may loosen it up enough to draw through.
hope this helps you out.

Canon MP360 not printing


You probably need a new purge assembly, it draws some ink to both clean and prime the printhead. When it stops working you won't get any ink to the paper.

Clothes wrapping under agitator


Somewhat inherent in this design. You can try to carefully unwrap the clothes by gently rocking them back and forth to see if you can release them, or gently spin the drum while you tug (not too hard!) on the stuck clothes. The wash plate seal might be compromised, but if you start taking the inner workings apart you have to replace the gasket set. I have not tackled this on my unit yet though I have replaced the old pump motor with the improved one (single piece instead of 2 pieces), and I have gotten adept at taking the unit apart from the bottom to remove draw strings which get sucked into the pump impeller, jamming or clogging it. The wash plate seal might be getting old - I think mine probably needs to be replaced but doing that will require more extensive repairs than just putting in a new seal. The service manual warns several times about replacing the proper seals, gaskets o-rings and/or grommets if you remove the outer or inner wash plates, to avoid compromising the water tight seals and causing damage to the U-joint assembly that gives the washer its characteristic wash motion.

My Dyson had exactly the same problem. I found the problem was caused by a blockage in the hose. Take the hose out where it joins the cleaner (it will come out if you pull it downwards gently) and take the hose out of the handle by squeezing the yellow buttons on either side. I pushed a rubber alkathene pipe down and found a piece of plastic was blocking it even though at first I was sure it wasn't blocked.
