Question about Fisher and Paykel Dishwashers
Model DD602 air pump no longer available. 1. any options to find part or some alternate 2. Seal is cut. does the pump go out if the seal is broken or can I replace seal only? Air pump is 3 yrs old
If the seal is cut then I do not see any reason to believe the pump is also faulty. You can test if the pump is working or not buy listening to the sound when you start the dishwasher. The air pump runs for a few minutes at the start of the cycle. You can try and find pump for DD601 which might also work. Unsually the pump and the release valve should be replaced together for better operation.

This has happened a few times to me as well.(VERY VERY LOUD NOISE AT THE BOTTOM)I have the same model It did stop.I did a little reading and came to the conclusion that it was the built in food disposer chopping blades were chopping up something like a cherry pit or peach pit and once an end of a wooden spoon that dropped down.If you look at your USE and care Guide on page 12 under trouble shooting "Dishwasher seems noisy"..I went through the same thing taking things apart.Its got to be it. Mine is 2 1/2 years as well. Hope this helps. email@example.com

remove the drain line and plug off the port on the sink that the dishwasher connected to, to plugit off black electrial tape wrapped arround the hole till it seals off will work

Problem solved - it was not the gasket - it was the vent tube as defined in one of your on-line reported solutions. Thank you!!!

HI - i just replaced the bottom seal yesterday. The guy at the spares shop advised me to replace both (bottom of door and bigger seal ) at the same time to ensure no leaks - i did that. The bottom door seal come out when you unscrew the screws - (No need to remove door) and because of all the gunk (from years of washing and age of the rubber) i had to wedge a blunt knife in between (starting at one of the ends) and lever it out - MAKE SURE YOU TAKE NOTE OF THE WAY IT IS BEFORE YOU REMOVE IT! An easy way to remember is there is a nick in the rubber of the old (and new) seal and as it is not centred, just note if the nick is closer to the left or right of the machine, I have replaced mine and there is a little leak and now i wonder if i put the seal in upside down! it has to go in the same way - before you gimmy your's out can you tell me if the nick in the rubber is to the left or right? (LIZ at firstname.lastname@example.org) If I have put in back right there is a chance the screw didn't go through the plastic part of the seal and therefore not holding it in place properly. GOOD LUCK! Don't worry about having to really work at getting the old seal out - you don't need it anymore and i didn't damage mine, regards, Liz
