Fisher paykel drain tube sliced

Found a small 1/2" slice in drain tube. Wondering if a small repair job to the tube would be sufficient, or removing drain tube which requires drawer removal.

I just took out the drawer for the first time on my 603 and it is a pleasure! However, you may not have to remove the drawer if it is the top one as the drain tube is accessible without removing the drawer. You will have to remove the plastic shield on the bottom...it has 7 plastic clips ... two pairs of two in the very front of the drawer, 3 big ones on the big circular plastic part. It also has two plastic spade 'aligners' in the back of the single plastic shield... those need to go in first before clicking in the others. I had to fuss with this a little until I understood how it was attached, but everything snaps in place.
Once you get the plastic shield off (it looks a little like the Starship Enterprise and is almost 20" or so long) you have access to the drain hose. It also clips into the drain housing with two plastic clips... be careful with these, they take some gentle persuading to come off and release the drain hose. Once you disconnect the drainhose, you can replace it (if that is what you have chosen to do). THe adapter at the end of the hose that plugs into the pump housing looks pretty unique to Fisher-Paykel so I suspect that you will need to order that. The alternative would be to get some kind of adapter for the hose and cut off the part with the split. Insert the adapter (adapts between the now two open ends of the hose) or adapt to some other hose which you can run to the sink drain... that may be the easiest approach, come to think of it.

good luck

Fisher & Paykel GW612 gets to rinse stage and doesn't drain properly. The drain pump gets rid of some water then cuts out for a couple of mins, then starts again. It does this 3 times before...


I recently had a similar problem and here is how I fixed it: Locate the drain pump. Connected to the outlet of the pump is a black rubber tube approximately 6" to 10" long and 1/2" in diameter. This tube is connected to a valve. The clamps holding the tube in place can be removed by hand. Take the clamps off and remove the tube. I found a penny stuck in mine near the valve end. How a penny made it through the pump and most of the way through the tube, I don't know, but I removed it, and the washer works as good as new. You might as well put a few drops of oil on each of the pump bearings while you are working on it.

We are getting a strong odor from our two compartment dishwasher, would welcome any suggestions


Get rid of any odor that may be coming from the plumbing pipes your dishwasher shares with the sink. Pour a half a cup of baking soda down each sink drain. Pour cups of vinegar down each drain until all the baking soda is washed away. After 5 minutes, run very, very hot water down each of the drains.


Clean out your garbage disposal. Slice a lemon and put the slices down your disposal drain. Run your disposal with the cold water running. You can use just the lemon or an orange rind if you don't have a whole lemon.

Pour two cups of vinegar into the dishwasher and let it sit for an hour and then let the dishwasher run through a cycle with the hottest water possible. Repeat the process if that does not help. You can use baking soda instead of vinegar - just sprinkle it in the bottom of the dishwasher.


Between washes, pour ¼ cup lemon juice into the dishwasher cup, and run a short but complete wash cycle. Is will not only deodorize the dishwasher, but will also help get rid of any metal build-up

Flood switch is at the very bottom underneath the bottom draw in the base floor.Unplug cord.Open bottom draw all the way & squeeze a towel or sponge under the draw & soak up the water..The washer should work now..Why did it flood in first place?
Check that dishes are not stacked higher than top edge of the draw otherwise it can't seal.this can happen when children are asked to stack the dishwasher.Another cause is some models the seal is an inflatable tube that seals the top edge of the draws,it gets cut or sliced buy a plate that was stacked to high when you closed the draw.there should be no clunk of dished hitting when the draw is closed.

Fisher & Paykel drawer dishwasher will not drain properly


We had this problem. wqe had a small bone blocking off the drain tube a bit. Take all the parts on the inside of the draw out ie mesh rack, remove the strainer, steel plate and remove the spinner. Now get a small pipecleaner or brush and poke it up where the strainer inlet is. You will probably see it pock through the centre where the spinner is. Give it a go.
