Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

It's a DD 603SS. It beeps and there is a U3 message in red on the outside button, and inside the "rinse", "fast" and "delicate" buttons are all flashing red. Help!

Sir,
This is an emerging issue that Fisher Paykel engineers are studying. They believe the valve changes pressure and the dishdrawer's control board thinks its going to flood. The fix is to replace the fill valve, PN 526850. Order new clamps, too, PNs525466.

First have the unit turned off. Then open up the drawer thats givin you trubbel.
The badge ought to be lit.
Now simultaneously press those static touch pads on each end of those led status lites (the ones on the drawer top?) (Cycle Select, and Eco-sensor pads)
Hold them for about 5 seconds.
Now If you have a metal front machine, the badge display will either show HP or LP. Assuming you have normal water pressure here like about 50 - 70 psi you want ta select the HP setting.
Do that by pressing the start button till you get what you want, then press power off to lock the setting in.
If you have an integrated model (you know.... matching your fancy smancy kitchen cabinets?)
Listen for a Hi or Low beep instead of looking for a display in the badge window.

this applies to 602's only. The 603's got smart and figgered out the difference all by themselves

U3


The dishwasher is filling up too quickly compared to what the controller expects. Try to turn down the water inlet tap under kitchen sink and check. Also see if the water pressure setting in the dishwasher is HP for normal mains water pressure. See

Top drawer works but bottom drawer shows code u3 and bottom drawer started leaking water before the u3 code showed up


U3 code generally relates to drain pump blocked. This could mean the water is not able to drain out. Leaking of water is not a good sign. Shows the vacuum seal is not working.

Clean the drawer door from inside and make sure the seal lining is sitting properly. Also the filter plate and the motor cavity needs cleaning. You will need to see the user guide on how to do this.

Top draw on our dishwasher isnt working .bottoms fine.wont start just beeps and the numbers /display is jumbled


If this has stopped working suddenly then most likely the controller on the top drawer has packed up. Before panicking, take a clean moist kitchen wipe and clean the edges inside around the drawer including the touch buttons inside. Sometimes the grime confuses the controller. Best of luck.

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

LP is a setting for Low pressure. To reset your pressure to HP, hold the Programme and Eco touch switches simultaneously for 5 seconds. Once the setup mode is entered a beep is emitted and
the LCD is red with ‘HP’ or 'LP' displayed. Push the Start/Pause button to alternate between HP and LP. and push the power button to exit.

Double Drawer Dishwasher


The last two faults are logged into EE memory.
The other U (user) faults have been removed. The old U2 fault, which was the tub forced open during a cycle, has
been removed completely. Instead if the tub is forced open the product simply pauses as if someone had pressed
the start/pause button. The old U3 fault, which indicated a failure to drain i.e. water left in the tub, will not show up a
fault and the DishDrawer will continue through the cycle
