Leaking dish drawer

At least one of my Fisher Paykel dishdrawers leaks. Is there a common reason for this that I could check out/fix before calling in a repair person?

It sounds like your door seal is giving you a problem. Before you replace the seal try running the dishwasher on the highest heat cycle to help the seal conform to the door.

Be sure to check the link support, the thin white plastic solid tube that guides in/out water supply tubes on opening and closing. I I had a problem with the top drawer leaking, ordered a new lid kit. It still leaked. Looking at the old lid I noticed one area that appeared to have ware about two inches long. I removed the bottom lid to get a good look at what was happening up on the door action, being sure there was nothing impeding the door a little. Moving the door back and forth and looking closely I noticed the link support, the white plastic solid tube that guides the hoses back when closing, was broke. Upon closer examination, when closing the door, being the link support was broken, I saw where the upper end of that link support would naturally rest on top of the door, between the tub and the lid. The lid could not seal as the link support was between the tub and lid!!! I taped it and wired it and voila! Too bad the tech that came out didn't catch it!

Fisher and Paykel twin dishdrawer


there is water in the base setting off the flood sensor, you will need to remove the bottom draw and dry the water up with a towel (make sure the power is off and unplug it from the power point) then you will need to do a bit of testing to locate the cause of the leak, if your lucky the leak was caused by incorrect dish stacking or something too big in the draw

Solve cross-draining problems with your Doule-Dishdrawer permanently!


Are you experiencing cross-draining problems with your older Fisher Paykel double dish drawer? Have you had a succession of technicians and service companies try to solve this problem, only to have it return again?
There is a reason this is happening to you and there is a way to fix it FOREVER.
In most cases, this problem can be traced to an improper installation. Fisher Paykel double-dishdrawers are in effect TWO dishwashers with two seperate drain hoses. Often times they are installed with an "air gap" which is required by many municipalities for code compliance. Installers who are used to installing "single" dishwashers often install a "single air gap" with a Y-adapter that connects both drawers to a single air gap, and to be fair, this is shown in the install instructions for the product. However it will usually not work for very long. The reason being, there is a small neoprene "check valve" in the base of the pump on both drawers. It is designed to keep the water from the last drain cycle from running back into the machine once the cycle stops. It was never designed to prevent the cross-drain condition. Over time the pressure from the water that wants to come from the other drawer will weaken that flap, causing it to "leak" and the result is when one drawer is run, the dirty water from one drawer drains partly into the other drawer. (YUCK!) Most techs will replace the flap, thinking they have solved the problem, and for awhile, yes, it will.
But this can get kind of expensive having to call for repairs every year or so.

The proper and permanent fix for this situation if to install a DUAL AIR GAP which can be purchased from Fisher Paykel parts: http://fisherpaykelparts.net/index.php?categoryid=1&productid=7

This device is totally "co-axial" in design and will not allow water from one drawer to get into the other. It also is "kosher" in that some Jewish families have a "meat" and "dairy" dishwasher and the two can never be mixed. If there is cross-draining going on, that is "not Kosher!" (pun yes, reality also!) This part will insure no cross-contamination.
These dual air gaps come with everything you need to replace a single air gap, and fit in the same hole. You can even transfer most decorative style covers that the customer may have on the single air gap (such as Bisque/Brushed Aluminum/Brass etc.) The feedback we have gotten from our own customers after instaling one of these is extremely positive, some going so far as to say it is like they have a new appliance, as it is now cleaning better than ever and there is no longer an objectionable odor coming from the drawer.

This is an excellent and PERMANENT code-compliant solution for cross-draining on older Fisher Paykel Dishdrawers. Try it. You'll like it!

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.

Fischer and paykel dish drawer leaking


Replacing lid seals on the dishdrawer is not for the faint hearted.
In particular if you are replacing the lid actuator and motors that go with it.

How do I fix F9 fault for Fisher & Paykel dishdrawer DD60


This is a controller fault and could be due to number of reasons. Either the controller itself is not sensing the sensors or some sensor is faulty. If it is occuring consistently and turning mains power and on is making no difference, then it is something a techniician will have to look at.

Fisher paykel dishdrawer


It is likely the top panel of the drawer needs cleaning.
First turn off the mains power to dishwasher and take the plug out if accessible. Wait a little and put the plug back and turn on the mains power. If this does not fix the problem, then get clean damp cloth and wipe the panel buttons on top inside of drawer.

Errors and restarts


will need a description of the problem. Some of the common fault codes are F1, F2 and F3.
All these fault codes stop the dishwasher and will not go away until the cause is removed. Please indicate the problem you are experiencing.
