Question about Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603SS Built-in Dishwasher
The thermal fuse that cuts of power to the drawer has been tripped. This means you will need to replace the heater assembly at the base of the drawer. It is not cheap - could set you back by $350-400 to replace.
To open the drawer you need to turn the mains power off and then simply pull the drawer out with a little force. The lid seal is jammed shut because the lid seal actuator motors are locked after the power failed. Do not shut the drawer back as this will damage the lid seal. You will have to call a technician to replace the heater assembly and restore power to the drawer. Hopefully the top drawer is working ok.

sorry fab9 but this model doesnt have a float switch, it is also not possible to remove the rear panel!
If both drawer are dead, I supect either a mains cord issue or a problem with the RFI board (under lower drawer at rear). Possibly a bit tricky for a handyperson type repair, I suggest calling a servicman/women in!!

fisher and paykel sent me a solution - turn off at wall and unplug then turn back on. The dishwasher reset itself and the drawer unlocked.

Ok you need to remove the motor rotor it's under the spray arm and comes out like a light bulb from the top draw and check for anyting stuck under it or any damage done to it. Try swapping it with the one out of the bottome drawer and see if that works. When you first start the washer does it drain all the water?? if still no luck try swapping the motor contoller modules (computer board) from the top drawer to the bottom drawer and retry both drawers ,if the fault moves drawers with the part, then that part is faulty cheers

i think you have to press the key/ lock button until the symbol disappears. You will find the exact button for your model in your owners manual.

Do you get any error code on the display?
Does the cycle complete or dishwasher keeps running?
Do you hear the pump trying to drain?
Is it happening in all wash cycles or some?
The easiest thing to do is to check if the filter at the base is clean.
I am assuming the kitchen drain is clear because the other drawer seems to work normally.
