Question about Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603SS Built-in Dishwasher

Brand new dishwasher not working

I installed a brand new Fisher and Paykel Dishdrawer this evening. We went through the final steps, including running both drawers through a full rinse cycle and checking for leaks. Those went through just fine, but once dishes and soap are put in and it's set to go on a real cycle, after a couple of minutes I get the "Inadequate Fill" light. How is it that it is getting water (the dishwasher sounded like it was getting water and it was all wet inside after the rinse cycle completed) but it cannot get enough for a real cycle? Thank you.

Re: Brand new dishwasher not working

Try this test: add water (one gallon each try) by hand fill and try the cycle again. Continue until light goes out. If light never goes out, then faulty water level switch or wiring. If light goes out, then water inlet valve is stopping too early, but need more info to determine why. Try this test: open door and find the door switch. Then activate the switch and turn on machine to watch water come in. It should not just "dribble" in; try to determine if water pressure is sufficient coming in.

If the panel display on the lower drawer is lit and you can select the program then most likely the water inlet valve is fault and needs replacement. But if the panel is dark and none of the buttons operate then the power to the drawer is cut off. This can be due to a number of reasons including the power board at the base loosing one power circuit or the thermal fuse in the drawer is blown. Please provide model number of dishdrawer unit and also please describe what is actually happening.

Fisher and Paykel dishdrawer, lid not retracting, no power.

By no power you may be implying there is no display etc and the swithces are not working. Most likely the controller of the top drawer has had it. The controller is mounted on the front of the drawer behind the door panel. Hope things are better than that.

Top drawer Fisher & Paykel Dishdrawer no lights lcd

Your original problem, F4, was the machine trying to tell you that the heater plate was not working. When you turned the drawer up-side down, you may have damaged the wiring harness. If you do get a technician, call a fisher paykel authorized servicer, not an independent, and make sure you tell him about the F4 problem. A new problem has been introduced by the cleaning procedure, and both issues will need to be resolved.
