You can replace it yourself and get the part from an appliance dealer for about 10-20 bucks.  If you don't want to, you can get it fixed for around 50-60 bucks.  Hope it helps.

The prime suspect in this case is always the drawer limit switch. On the DD602's, the limit switch is located on the very back of the left drawer guide which means.to remove the switch the drawer needs to come out.

and for further instruction on how to do it manually without calling repair person just click this link and read the instructions and follow them properly

According to http://www.scribd.com/doc/6462163/DD601V2-Manual, the dishwasher thinks that the door is open. This means either that the microswitch has failed or the exhaust valve failed open circuit. Neither of these should be very expensive to fix. Your friend might be wrong or he might be right, if it's the microswitch then it'll be pretty cheap since it's a small part, or if he's right then it could be a little more, but still very reasonable.

Thanks for visiting Fixya.

Faulty top drawer on fp dishdraw can I disconnect powet to top unit to disable it


Unfortunately the power is distributed from the inside to the two drawers.
You will have to address the cause of the problem in the top drawer.
If you are good at electric repairs you could disconnect the power from the dishwasher power board itself, but this is not for the faint hearted (no offence). Might be helpful if you can provide a little details about the problem with top drawer. Generally if you are getting F1 message on the panel on bottom drawer and top drawer display is blank (ie no power), then the power board at the base of dishwasher is blown and needs to be replaced. Please clarify model number as the one you provided is for single drawer unit. Make sure the mains power is turned off when you work inside the diswasher.

Need to remove front drawer panel


There are two plastic bolts on each side of the dishwasher drawer holding the front cover. Get a plier to pull these out but make sure the cover is supported so that it does not fall down.

see installation manual page 7. The location of the plastic screws is shown in insert diagram of notation 6. This is for a later model but yours should be similar.
Hope this helps. Wonder why you want to remove the front cover?

F&P DD601 TOP DRAWER IN ALARM F3 , ANY IDEAS?


F3 alarm in F&P DD601 is linked to water temperature. If you are using cold water supply connection, then it is likely the heater unit or temperature sensor has gone faulty. If you are using hot water supply direct then the inlet water temperature is exceeding recommended range of approx 65deg C. DD601 is a fairly old unit and not sure if you can still get some parts.

Fisher and Paykell DD601 V2 Top Drawer Overflowing


I suggest pressing the keylock and power button together, hold for 5 secs, the display will change orange, the display should read HP if it says LP, press the start button to make display read HP.Then press power button to store. You will need to manually removed the water from the machine before restarting
