Question about Fisher and Paykel DD605FD Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

Top drawer leaks on floor

TOP DRAWER WASHES AND DRAINS PROPERLY. AT THE END OF A CYCLE, AFTER DRAIN IS FINISHED, THE TOP DRAWER IS OPENED TO UNLOAD CLEANED DISHES. WHEN THE DRAWER IS STANDING OPEN, HALF A QUART OF WATER DRIPPS ONTO THE FLOOR DIRECTLY BELOW THE PUMP IMPELLOR AREA FROM THE UNDERSIDE OF THE DRAWER. ARE THERE REPLACABLE SEALS FOR THE PUMP? NO OBJECTS HAVE BEEN FOUND IN THE PUMP AREA, BUT THE CLEANING LADY SOMETIMES DOESNT REINSTALL THE PUMP AND COVER CORRECTLY. THIS PROBLEM HAS BEEN ADDRESSED AND THE DRAWER IS CORRECTLY ASSEMBLED WHEN THE LEAKS OCCUR. IF THE DISHWASHER TILTS FORWARD AT THE TOP MORE THAN AT THE BASE, ONLY A 1/4 INCH OUT OF TRUE SQUARE, WILL THIS CAUSE WATER TO RIP AFTER THE DRAIN HAS RUN?

If you hear the motor sound during drain cycle then it is likely the drain hose is cracked and pump cannot generate enough pressure to empty the drawer. You will have to find the cracked portion of the hose and replace it. It appears the bottom drawer is operating properly.

DD-603 cycle and draining problems.


check your kitchen drain as it might be blocked or if you have a garbage disposal (kitchen insinkerator) make sure it is cleared before running the dishwasher.

I have a Kitchen Aid 2 drawer dishwasher and its about 2 years old. My problem is the top drawer will not drain during wash cycle. The bottom drawer drains fine. model number KUDD03DTSS 10


Hi,
You may have clogged pump to the drawer. open drawer, lay on your back under the dish drawer, removed the black cover (3 screws) remove 2 screws to the pump and allow the water to drain out into a bucket or bowl. make sure the pump can turn easy. Reassemble and test unit again. If fails, replace pump.
Pump
I hope this helps, good luck

My new LG washer always has water in the soap dispenser, bleach dispenser, and fabric softener dispenser after the cycle has finished. Is this normal?


Mine too!! Very annoying, especially since the water then drains down onto to floor and has actually made the door hinges stiff! I just use powdered bleach now.

Leaking water from inside lower drawer


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

Water leaking back into top drawer, resulting in error that prevents the cycle completeing


It is good that you identify the leak from the top drawer. Now it time to clean it. Pull out the tube. Near the bottom there is a squares tab on both sides. Press these tab so the tube could be pulled further out so you can lift the tube out of the rails. Push these rails in then you can lower the tube to the floor to dry out the wetness inside the housing. You can use the bottom drawer while deciding to fix the top drawer by yourself or call the F&P serviceman. If you decide to do your own then need to order the Lid seal with YOKE and a pair of actuators. THe original problem is the actuators,not holding down the lid seal so there was a leak. However, when it is bad it causes the lid tilted in one side then damages the seal from the lid. If you don't mind the time, when you replace the actuators keep original lid in until it leak the replace with a new lid. WHen change the new lid you have to change the YOKE since the replacement had a new design better than the original so they are different. Good Luck.
