Sounds like the rinseaid cap' may not be sealing. I'd try swapping the caps over to see if this fixes the problem if so you need a new cap if not you need a whole new dispenser cheers

Fisher paykel dishdrawer bottom drawer washes fine leaves water in top drawer


At some point the two drawers individual drain hoses are joined using a "Y' type connector. Check this, and everything beyond this point for restrictions or blockage. It sounds like the bottom drawer is pumping its drain water out normally, but some of that water is backing up to the upper drawer. This is an installation or plumbing problem that is external of the dishdrawers.

How do I reset the f1 flood button . Dd603ss


Not sure if you have managed to fix the F1 problem with your dishdrawer. This is a common problem and occurs mainly due to water leaking into the base of the dishdrawer under the bottom drawer.
But if it is occuring only in one drawer then the power filter at the base of dishdrawer is faulty and needs replacement.

Otherwise make sure the mains power to dishdrawer is turned off. Pull out the bottom drawer and stack in some towels behind it if you can to remove the moisture sitting on the base. The flood switch is located there. Then take a hair dryer and run it down behind the drawer to dry things. Push drawer back and turn power back on. Now if you cannot reach the back of the drawer then you will have to pull the drawer out from its rail. Refer the installation manual for this. See link page 7.

Maybe you are putting it in the wrong compartment ? Powder in the top liquid in the bottom , you can also adjust the rate of flow for the rinse aid . This manual explains it all .

Flood switch 920 model


Not sure what the actual model number is but usually the F1 error with Fisher and Paykel dishwasher means water has entered the flood switch located at the base. This could be due to leaky hoses or water leaking through the door or lid seal. Wait for a day or two until the water evaporates and try again. Otherwise you will have to dry out the flood switch and then try again. Location of flood switch will depend on your model. For double drawer dishwasher you will have to take the bottom drawer out from the housing and the switch is on the floor of housing. But make sure you take the mains power chord out before touching the insides of dishwasher. Will also need to find the cause of the leak. Other reason for F1 could be loss of power to top dishdrawer if you have double drawer. But in that case the top drawer will have no lights on. The power board is located on the base of housing under bottom drawer. Once again do not touch inside of dishwasher without shutting off mains power.

Keep blowing fuses


This means there is water collected on the base of the dishwasher cabinet under the bottom drawer. You will need to disconnect the dishwasher mains plug and take the bottom drawer out to dry the base out. Follow instructions in this manual (page 7 step 2) to remove the drawer.

Our two drawer dishwasher model 603dd was working - it showed the "flood button" and then the power cut out and now there is no power to it. Its two years old. Id it worth fixing?? id there anything we can...


I am assuming one of the drawers has caused water to leak into the base of the dishwasher cabinet

Disconnect the mains power connection.

Extend the bottom drawer out as much as possible. Use towels and hair dryer to dry out the base - especially the flood switch that is located towards the back middle of the base.

Leave it open until the moisture disappears. Reconnect mains power and try to start one of the drawers.

The water can leak due to kink or crack in hoses or simply too much foam from detergent.

Hope this fixes the problem - hopefully nothing to replace.

Fisher and Paykel Dishdrawer beeping constantly


leave it unpluged to stop for now, the machine has detected a leak and is constantly running hte pumps within the drawers to try to remove any water.. problrm is the water detector is in bottom under the lower drawer and htere is no pump to remove that water ..canbge a fickle machine as far as leaks are concerned, but the easy reason is usually misloading of the drawer itself, was an item put in that was too tall , preventing the lid from coming down and sealing off drawer causing water to overflow down the side??? there should be(so logn as no previous repairmen have taken it) a tech/trubleshooing guide taped to teh back wall behind the lower drawer, which is easily removed by unlocking hte hinges on either side of the front of drawer, explained in your manual

Bottom drawer drains into top drawer


I can offer a PERMANENT fix for this! That machine has never been installed properly since day 1 I would bet, and a series of techs have come thru unable to fix it right, or they keep selling you those "flappers" that fix the issue for a short period of time.
The way to fix cross-draining fisher paykel dishdrawers is to install a dual-air gap. You can get them from fisherpaykelparts.net here: http://www.fisherpaykelparts.net/index.php?categoryid=113&productid=7

Install one of those and the machine will work better than it ever has!!
