Why is the bottom drawer stuck?

The bottom drawer of this machine is jammed in such a way it will either not open unless forced and if open will not close unless really forced. Is this common and is there a common solution?

Is this a Fisher Paykel Dishdrawer?
If so, the lid is likely not returning properly to the upmost position.

Caused by faulty lid actuators, easily fixed by replacing them.

Try not to open and close forcefully as it will damage the rubber seal (built into the lid), then you will also have to replace the lid.

SOURCE: fisher & paykel top drawer stuck again

Sounds like the lid is not opening all the way. Rubber may be coming off lid seal during opening and closing. Check you lid actuators replace both right and left if needed.

SOURCE: dishwasher lid stuck

the lids on dishdrawers are pulled down and sealed by lid activaters. there r two types, the screw type and the magnetic solonoid type. the reason your draw gets stuck is your lid activator is not releasing. there are 2 reasons for this 1st- 1 or both activators are faulty. 2nd the lid activator control board is faulty, which is located under the bottom drawer.pull the draw out and see if u can see if the lid is down on 1 side or both sides.please reply 4 more help.

Testimonial: "Thanks Luisa! We replaced the lid activator 2 years ago - it cost us $250. The problem has occurred twice since. We were able to trigger the lid to open by unplugging the dishwasher and plugging it back in. Symptom is cured, problem is not. How hard is it to replace lid activator?"

SOURCE: fisher paykel heater plate replacement

The problem is the thermal fuse in the bottom drawer which shuts of the controller power. But the thermal fuse is part of the heater assembly. So you will have to replace the lot.

It is not an easy procedure to replace the heater assembly as the whole system is intervined with the pump and motor components.

You will have to disconnect all wiring and hoses from the base of the drawer once you have it out after removing the transparent plastic wiring cover.

Then you have to release the locking ring to remove the pump and motor assembly along with the heater plate.

Hope this helps. please rate the solution if ok otherwise drop a comment.

How to defrost freezer in kitchen Aid bottom drawer freezer


My kitchen aid bottom drawer freezer kept melting and freezing to block the drain and then water would leak out all over the floor. I did the WHOLE fridge/freezer defrosting process once, when i really just needed to do the bottom.

I have had issues with other Kitchen Aid (NEW BTW) appliances so I've talked to many repair people. One guy who came out to fix something else, told me that the freezer is really a pain to get to close completely. SO, when you don't close it all the way (Extra push) it will melt and then re freeze when it is closed properly. He suggested I take everything out, leave it open and use a hair dryer on the ice until it melts. Then use a wire hanger to unplug the drain to make sure its draining properly.

It works! You really have to make sure the drawer is shut ALL the way. I have a 2 yr old who is constantly opening it up...this is my issue! The seal is not that great and you have to really push it closed to prevent the ice build up issue.

Hope that helps!

Washer detergent drawer will not open...drawer lock or detergent cup?


Something has jammed the drawer closed. You will need to access the top of the dispenser.
Remove the 2 screws holding the top lid in back. Slide the top lid rearward and remove.
Pry open the top of the dispenser top and using a small screwdriver, unsnap the lid snaps.
This will release the drawer and you can clean out any debris that caused it to jam up.
Good luck.

My top drawer of my Fisher and Paykel dish washer wont close tight. It seemed to be jammed and not closing unless it was pushed closed hard and then it jumped a bit now wont close tight and has no...


Make sure the unit is level. Remove drawer. On the inside of the cabnet there are the drawer runners on iether side. Behind these there are a pair catches. If one or both of these are latched back when they shouldn't be, ie. when the drawer is open, they will obstruct the drawer from closing fully and fail to hold it closed.

Hope this helps

My CD drawer will not open or close


I had a mini system with the same problem, out of guarantee so was either fix it myself or bin it.
I opened the unit and removed the whole cd drawer assembly from it's housing. I then, not really recommended, plugged it back in and by pressing the open/close a few times the drawer finally opened. Put it all back together and it now works fine. I think what had happened is that I use the cd player once every couple of months and combined with the lack of use is the fact that there are several smokers in the living room and basically it got jammed by a build up of nictotine or whatever.

Soap drawer on bottom washer won't open


Hi and welcome to FixYa.
That cup is held closed by a simple clip that is molded into the dispenser. There is nothing that would really keep it closed unless it is physically broken. Without being there to see the situation it is is hard to offer up anything else. I can say that if the cup is broken, that dispenser is a part #526860. It is not hard to change at all, you can do it yourself and you can order one here:

Jammed soap drawer


hiya
yes the screws are behind the soap drawer, will the drawer not open at all? if not then the only way would be to force it open and the chances are it will break and need replacing. if it opens about 2/3's of the way try pressing the thin blue locking tab in the middle of the two channels and pulling.

hope this helps
