Question about Fisher and Paykel Dishwashers
The drawer is stuck and wont slide, the power light is on but the buttons will not work. this only effects the top drawer the bottom seems just fine
Please provide the model number of the dishwasher so that I can identify the type of lid seal it is using. Usually the lid seal actuator motors are stuck and prevent drawer from opening. You could force it open with a slight tug. Otherwise turn the mains power off and on and see if it makes any difference. Need to check the lid seals for damage otherwise it may leak in future and cause flood switch to trip.

fisher and paykel sent me a solution - turn off at wall and unplug then turn back on. The dishwasher reset itself and the drawer unlocked.

I see the question is posted in the DD603 section, so I am not sure if
I am giving the proper advice. Are you sure this is a 602/601 series? A DD603 model has lid actuator motors, not the inflatable style seal. It sounds like the lid motors are in the DOWN position. Since the machine is "dead" what may have happened is the heater plate opened up (the heater plate is a dropping resistor inline with the machine's controller) when the machine was in use and that stopped everything dead.
Double-check your model number so we know what style of lid your machine has, The difference is huge between models.

Most likely the micro-switch that tells the controller that the drawer is closed is broken. Its a tiny little black switch at the back of the left drawer slide, it had a metal actuator that is prone to breaking.

Below is the service manual link and a web site that I found. refer to the lower section where a person writes in that the fixed the flooding with a hairdryer. I hope this helps, they seem like fantastic dishwashers.
