Hi and welcome.
You posted your question in the DD/DS603 series section, but code U3 is usually seen on a DD/DS601 or DD602 series. When this code appears, most comon cause is that the machine is set in LP or LOW PRESSURE mode and needs to be set to HP or HIGH PRESSURE.
The fault is sensing water level too high in the drawer, which can also be caused by a blocked drain or inoperative pump. I can tell you exactly how to tell if the machine in in the wrong mode if you can tell us the correct model number. The machine's pump/drain system can easily be checked by putting the machine in diagnostic mode and running the drain pump.

3 lights and loud beeping


When you start your machine is the water just go stop go stop,
Just wait for the machine to display an error code on the wash progress lights and beeps constantly.
It could be the Rotor Position Sensor, out of balance switch or lid magnetic reed switch.
Your error code will determine this.
Is your machine beeping & showing a weird pattern of lights on the wash cycle, It is displaying an error code,
To read this error code you start at the red spin light & work to the left only add up the lights that are on. Red spin light = 1 2nd rinse light =2 1st rinse light =4 last wash light=8 4th wash light=16 3rd wash light=32 2nd wash light=64 1st wash light=128

Had the double drawers for 3 years now and all of a sudden, the top drawer is having problems. A few minutes after I start a load, the blue light on the front starts blinking red, it beeps, and when I...


First thing to do is to take a clean damp cloth and lightly wipe the grime off the drawer lid especially on top of the membrane keys.

Wonder how often it has gone into this blinking red state.

I have a Danby DDW1899WP portable dishwasher. I just got it yesterday. I had a lot of dirty dishes so I did 1 cycle first and it worked perfectly, I was impressed. I then started a 2nd cycle for the rest...


I realize the above question is almost 4 years old, but I am sure others are still having this problem. My Danby was behaving the same way: drying cycle light would flash like it was having a myocardial infarction, and the cycle would stop. I could only get the light to stop flashing by turning the unit off. What you didn\'t say above is what happens then: everything most likely returns to normal-- or at least, so it seems. I have now had this happen to me two times in a row with my Danby 1899WP. Each time the machine has started up just fine, drains water out, loads in fresh water, and begins the wash cycle, only to freeze up with that damn flashing red light on the dry cycle and the dishes not clean. I have owned it for about two months, and so far this is my only complaint. I am running it again right now, for the third time, and we shall see what that light does now.... Will report back afterward!

Diplomat adp8322 dishwasher has start button flashing 7 times and rinsne cycle light on what does this mean


This is stating that no water is entering the dishwasher.

My solution was to turn the power off at the wall and wait for 10 minutes.

Turned it back on. Pressed the Start button and held til it beeped and reset, then started as normal and all was fine.

Fisher & Paykel DS605 starts cycle, stops, beeps, shows U3 error.


U3 means the tub filled to quickly or the water failed to drain. Do you have very high water pressure? are you using the wrong detergent? eg you can't use tablets (powerballs) etc in the unit. Try putting half a cup of white vinegar in the tub to kill any foam. Check there isn't anything stuck under the motor rotor inside the tub and the there's no signs of damage. Put the drain hose in a bucket and see if the water drains ok when the unit starts? If everything seems ok I'd suspect the main motor controller module but it may be worth getting an appliance tech to inspect unit first as it's hard without seeing this unit. feel free to ask any questions. Cheers
