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.

SOURCE: Top drawer stuck, gaskets rubbing, no power to controls

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.

SOURCE: Fisher & Paykel DD601 top drawer won't start.

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.

The compartment wont seal


This piece you are mentioning could be the Lid seal. It looks like this part. (use a mirror to check as it is on top of drawer housing)

https://www.genuineapplianceparts.net/product/522566/522566-Lid-and-Seal-Kit/

It is more likely the lid seal motors are stuck. Need to turn mains power off and then pull the drawer out. If there is no difference when you turn mains power back on, then the technician work is involved to free up or replace the parts.

No power top drawer


Try to reset your dish washer. Turn off main power supply and leave it for at least 1 min. Is there any error code appear/beeping sound?

Fisher Paykel drawer stuck closed how to fix.


Turn the mains power off and force pull the drawer slowly.. No jerky movements. The lid seal is stuck. Once open, check for any damage to lid seal by running fingers on the underside of the top of cabinet where the drawer slides in. Turn mains power back on. If the drawer does not slide back in then it is likely the lid seal actuator motor is stuck or power to motor has failed. Will need technician involvement to fix. If lid seal looks torn then it will need to be replace. Can cause leaks and further faults otherwise.

How can I reset this?


The lid actuator motor is stuck which may be causing the lid seal to obstruct the movement of the drawer. If the problem is still there then first thing to do is try turn off the mains power at the switch and push the drawer in. If this does not work even when you turn the power back on, then post a reply. Normally I would not recommend trying the diagnostic sequence unless one is familiar with working with appliance controllers. This is a very sophisticated dishwasher and any wrong sequence in the diagnostic can either damage the dishwasher or cause flooding. Best to leave it to the technician.

Top drawer of my 8yr old fisher paykel dishwasher got stuck opening and now cant get it back in , botom drawer works but no power to top drawer can it be fixed ?


Not sure if your dishwasher problem has been fixed yet.

The lid seal actuator motors on the top drawer are stuck due to lack of power and therefore you cannot close the drawer. Don't try to force it in as this will cause damage.

First thing to do is to restore power to the drawer. The power comes from the filter board sitting at the base of the dishwasher. You will have to disconnect power to the dishwasher and get both the drawers out. This will give you access to the power filter board.

Refer item 15 in this diagram. It is likely the board is faulty and it supplies the lid seal actuator motor power to both drawers. (separate connections).

You have to take the front cover of each drawer out to remove the drawers from the rails. But be careful not to damage the cable and hose when pulling out. Keep a chair or something next to dishwasher to hold the top drawer.

Once you fix the filter board and restore power to actuator motors, push the lid seal up by hand to make sure it does not block the lid.
Hope this fixes the problem.

Dishwasher beeping and displaying F1 on screen. HELP!!


F1 error means that the flood switch has been activated. To reset the flood switch 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. Once 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.

Fisher paykel drawer dishwasher is stuck open and will not close


Hey I dont know if you have this problem, but with mine the gasket seemed to be blocking the opening, so you could close it, but you had to shove a lot. The FP help line said to just unplug and replug in the unit. I did it and lo and behold it worked fine again. It did seem to leak a little bit the first time I reran it, but that seems to have gone away. Hope this helps

Fisher and Paykel dishdraw DS603


look closely at hte display in theright corner is there a little icon that looks like a "lock". if so your control lock is on. do you get any response from any buttons??? if your able to power it up did you try to stop/andrestart unit. sounds like a silly question but sometimes the lid locks down from a power surge/interuption. restarting or canceling current cycle forced drawer to unlock and lock itself..assuming this is the top drawer is the bottom functioning ok??, behind the bottom drawer taped on back wall of inside of unit is atech sheet, with a pretty good troubleshooter. to remove the drawer push in rectangler hinge locks in hte bottom front corner of drawer front, just below the circles(no noeed to remove the circles)push themin and slide back the drawer will lift off and your able to set it aside(wont come out to far its connected by the hoses but itll come out enough(reset the door unto the hinge slides and pull hte lock latch foward to lock back into place
