Question about Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603SS Built-in Dishwasher
It had been working fine. Then it didn't want to open. I gently insisted, and now it doesn't want to close. I don't want to force it. How do you remove the drawer to inspect the tracks?

The lid seal of the top drawer is broken or has come off. To get to it you will have to take the two drawers out carefully along with the cables and hoses intact.
Then feel the top underside of the cabinet for the lid seal. Depending on the problem it will have to be replaced. There is an intricate mechanism of actuator arms and motors that drive it. I hope these are ok.
If you are lucky maybe the drawer has just come off the rails and you could put it back and it will be ok.

Hi,aside from any obstruction is thet DishDrawer® square and level?.
Is the DishDrawer® fastened securely to the cabinetry to prevent flex or movement? If not, the square geometry this appliance requires with affect drawer performance when opening and closing.
This is the most common cause for your problem. I'm not 100% sure, but it is something to take into consideration. Just a thought.

If none of the lights on the top drawer are on and it is not responding to the switches then the controller has lost power. This in turn has caused the lid seal motors to freeze and hence the reason why the drawer movement is stiff.
Controller power is lost if the thermal fuse located in the heater assembly is blown. This is a safety mechanism to protect the dishwasher if the temperature goes too high. Sometimes it can also mean the thermostat became faulty causing the heater to overheat.
In order to restore the controller power the heater assembly needs to be replaced as the thermal fuse is integral to it. This part looks like this.
Once the power is restored to the controller then it will pull the lid motors back unless these are out of position which means the seal has to be opened and the motors repositioned.
Let me know if you want to fix this yourself or call the technician. I can give you some idea of how to access the heater assembly etc but it is not a trivial task to replace. The drawer is very compact and requires a fair bit of effort and patience to repair

When you lift up the top of the stapler (as though you are going to put staples in), does the pusher slide freely back and forth? It might be getting stuck at some point and not pushing the staples (either due to a worn pusher spring, or friction). First (after removing the staples) try spraying some light oil on the mechanism and lifting the top part of the stapler up and down a few times and observe how easily it moves back and forth. Also, with the top open try GENTLY sliding back and forth a little - if it slides fine with no sticking, try loading staples and using stapler. If it slides ok, but doesn't quickly return to it's "normal position" when pulled so as to put tension on the spring, rhen the spring may be worn and need replacing.
