Question about Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603SS Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

How do I relace the drain flapper valve (528625P) on the bottom of the upper drawer in my Fisher Paykel 603?

I have worked on the bottom drawer and set it on the floor. Don't know if my spouse can hold the top drawer while I fiddle. Can anyone explain the valve replace process?

    Hi and Thanks! My note must have been bad - it is the top drawer that's leaking and need's the valve replaced. I thought the valve might be on the underneath side of the top drawer. I am looking for a way to replace the valve flap without removing the entire top drawer, and hoped it could be done in place from underneath. It looks, however, like the valve flap is on the rear of the tub and under the wiring cover. Do I understand that correctly?

9.9.1 Remove the drawer front
9.9.2 With the tub opened release the tub clips and push back the
drawer rails.
9.9.3 Carefully release the four wiring cover clips from the front
lower section of the tub taking care not to damage them.
9.9.4 Release the three clips on the underside of the tub which
retain the wiring cover.
9.9.5 Pull the tub fully open and lift it up at the front (this makes it
easier to remove the wiring cover from the rear of the tub).
9.9.6 The wiring cover may now be carefully moved forward to
release it from the rear of the tub.

.
9.10.6 Unclip the drain hose cuff from the motor assembly taking care not to misplace the non-return flap valve so you know where it sits.
Replace flap valve and refit in reverse order.

Not sure why you need to take the top drawer out if you have already got the bottom drawer out and only need to replace the valve in bottom drawer.

    Sam, Thanks. This parallels wht I have in the service manual. I'm hoping someone who has done this could provide a shortcut. I need to replace the drain hose flapper valve on the bottom of the upper drawer, but was hoping to avoid removing the drawer if I could get to it from below when the drawer was open. Be nice if someone had a video!

    Sorry about the confusion. If it is the top drawer then I see no reason why it cannot be done without taking the drawer out from the housing. I have not done it but it will feel like working under the chassis of a car lying down with face up. I might suggest it would be easier if you can lift the dishwasher on to a work table and sit yourself at eye level. Make sure the dishwasher is fastened to table with rope or strap so that it does not topple when you pull the top drawer. Good luck.

yes there is. It is just inside the white hoses that drain the system. 1 per drawer. They cost about $0.50 but are a real pain to get to. This flap will go bad in about 3-5 years and maybe sooner depending on the temp of the water used.

If the bottom flap goes bad, using the top drawer will drain into the bottom drawer.

SOURCE: Fisher Paykel DD603 top drawer will not drain

Hi and welcome.
Either your hubby forgot to knock the plug out of the dishwasher connection on the new disposal, or he does not have a dual-air gap installed and the hoses to the dishdrawers do not have a high loop to prevent back-siphoning into the drawer...

You need a Air gap kit designed by Fisher and Paykel to address this problem. It is pricey but it is worthy. I used this and very happy with it since no back flow problem from one while other running. Here is a link to order it.http://www.fisherpaykelparts.net/product/WT50/WT50-Dual-Air-Gap-Kit/

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.

F2 Fisher Paykel 603 issue


You can download the service manual from
http://www.fisherpaykelparts.net/index.php?categoryid=115&productid=18 at a cost of $20

But if you can go through the user guide which is free from
http://www.fisherpaykel.com/admin/pdfs/pdf_usecares/527971B_DD_user_guide_USw.pdf

you should be able to work out how to remove the impeller and rotor once you have taken out the filter plate. It needs a slight twist and pull at the same time. It is likely there is some debris between the drain filter and the rotor cavity. You may need to insert a thin stiff wire through the drain filter sump.

Josh, you will need to have a Tech out to look at it... F/P will not sell you parts to repair it. The F1 indicates that the flood switch has been tripped. There are many possible causes for this but probably the upper drawer link support has broken and is getting stuck between the lid and the drawer in which case you will need a new lid and link support.
