Question about Fisher and Paykel 24 in. DS-603 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

My drawer won't stay closed during the wash cycle.

I don't think the drawer is closing the way it used to. It would feel as if it was going over a small bump when closing. Now it just feels like it is getting hung up and won't close right. The #'s near the barcode are 88274CHM 714766#. It must be about 7-8 yrs. old. Everything has always worked fine until now. Also it has been broken for a few months now and I'm concerned with starting it again. Is that a problem or shoul I just start it once we figure out the problem?

It would be nice to know what was fixed from recent broken. I guess the lid seal and/ or the Lid actuators were replaced.

Anyway,
1-The drawer didn't close because there are 2 plastic latch door at the end of the rail on both sides did not latch. There is posibility they are broken since plastic are brittle after time. Or the springs were poped out so the latch didn't engage. To check this the inner tube has to be removed to inspect.

2- Feeling like going to the bump when closing the drawer because the sagging rubber seal from the top lid pressing again the top groove of your inner tube when closed.

These symtoms need to be addressed since it is very near for a coming problem: Leaking then the Unit doesn't funtion any more.
Why
either the seal is out of its place to press again the groove, or there is a problem with actuators causing the top lid sagging down. It is also possible that the Top Lid is falling out of its snapped position from left and/or right arm unless it unproperly installed. Good luck in finding.

Why is my frigidaire washer not spinning?


  1. Stopped Mid-cycle
    • If your Frigidaire washing machine started spinning, but then stopped, verify that the power cord is still connected to the outlet. See if the outlet blew by plugging in a different appliance into the outlet. See if you blew a fuse. A blown fuse usually is either black or has broken wires. Replace the fuse. If you have a circuit breaker instead of a fuse box, reset the circuit breaker if it's been tripped. Check the lid switch, which is located inside the main housing of the washing machine, near the door frame. If the switch is burned out, order a new part from a Frigidaire parts dealer.
    Pump
    • The pump's sole responsibility is to remove water during the spin cycle. If the pump isn't working properly, see if it's clogged with debris or clothing. Use needle-nose pliers to remove these items. Check the pump pulley, which is connected to the pump. This component must move freely for the pump to work. If it won't turn, purchase a new pump pulley since you can't usually fix this component.
    Lid
    • Check the door latch assembly if the door isn't closing correctly. If any of these components are broken, order a new part from a Frigidaire parts dealer. If you do not, the washer won't start spinning since it believes the door isn't closed. Your Frigidaire washing machine won't start the spin cycle until the lid or door is closed. Always close the lid, and remove any items preventing the lid from fully closing. Always close the dispenser drawer.
    Additional Concerns
    • Never over- or under-load your washing machine. Your Frigidaire washer may not enter the spin cycle if the load is too large, since this can damage the washing machine. Remove a few pieces of clothing. If the load is too small, add a few similar items to the washing machine. Check the internal belt, drive motor and motor coupling. If any of these components are broken or very worn, they may not work properly, preventing the washer from entering the spin cycle. Order replacement parts from a parts dealer. Check the tub and basket bearings, and get new ones if the current ones have broken components or are defective.

Simpson brand dishwasher won't disperse detergent tablet


The soap dispenser drawer is supposed to open during the cycle. Try first to understand if the drawer is opening or not during cycle.

If the drawer is not opening, then check if the opening mechanism is stuck, if it is blocked by dirt and soap, if it is broken, or if something, for examble a basket too close to dispenser drawer is preventing the drawer from opening.

Some dishwasher works only with powder, in that case indications are given on the owners manual.

If the drawer opens and the table, or powder is still staying stuck in the drawer, then that means that the spray does not have enough power to solve the tablet.
In that case check spray arms and impeller pump.Also check water temperature.

If the problem is also happening with powder, then it is probably a drawer not opening on cycle.

Kitchenaide dishwasher latch will not stay closed. It pops open during washing cycle and the machine stops and does not complete the cycle


The dishwasher was not properly leveled on installation. I used a carpenter's level
and trued up the problem. The door now stays closed.

However, the latch design is faulty in that it does not ever feel securely latched and that is true of all the Kitchenaides that I tried in the showrooms.
