If you have sulfur in your water, the sulfur will turn metals black, including stainless, brass.

Testimonial: "Thanks, but how would I know if I have sulphur in the water - and this has only started happening in the last 3 months. Prior to that period my cutlery was fine and my dishes did not get the "scratches"."

  • Joel Friedenberg May 16, 2014

    Typically you can smell the sulfur if it's in the water. Have you cleaned the dishwasher out to get rid of any mineral deposits? Vinegar and baking soda are very good cleaning agents. Just put about one cup of vinegar and about two tbsp of baking soda and put the washer on regular cycle.

    Thanks, I have cleaned my dishwasher with an approved cleaning product - Finish again, I think. Will try the other options you suggest.

I don't know where to put the new Finish tablet in the Fisher and Paykel dishwasher. Where or what is the Dry Dispenser ?


Hello Susanna Davies,

Generally a round cap immediately next to the
washing powder dispenser...

Known as "FINISH" or "Jet Dry"... as it really does
keep spot off of your dishes & especially glassware.

I tried to look up Fisher & Paykel...
but without a specific MODEL NUMBER
I could not pull an OWNERS MANUAL to demonstrate.

look here for FREE documentation
ManualsLib Makes it easy to find manuals online

SEARS is the last place I would recommend buying parts
(but that has more to do with integrity & respect)...
Their parts, guarantees & prices are suddenly competitie

The water temperature is not coming up to the required level. The heater might be failing. Will need a technician to fix unless you are very savvy with technical repairs. Have you tried using the detergent powder in the dispenser to find if results are different.

Generally what type of detergent you use depends on what is recommended for the dishwasher. I am not sure which model of fisher and paykel dishwasher you have. But my opinion is that dish drawer type dishwashers work better with normal Finish powder detergent. It is not designed for tablets. The size of the wash space is small and it works on the principle of short and quick wash cycles. So the powerball is an overkill. Now about the streaking, this could be linked to the powerball but also you need to check if the rinse aid is present in the dispenser and also that you have selected the appropriate meter level for it being dispensed. 0 means no rinse aid and 5 is too much.;

Does it fill with water? I would guess a fill/ drain/ heating problem. See if you can eliminate any of those.

Fisher & Paykel DD24DCTB6 top drawer beeps instead of starting


It is very likely the two problems are not linked. Use small quantities of power detergent (Finish works best) to avoid foaming. The foaming usually triggers flood switch and shuts dishwasher. If the beeping is constant then most likely the flood switch is triggered. But if you get one or 2 beeps when you press start, then it is likely some sensor in drawer is faulty. Usually the drawer close switch is not working.

U1 code 920 model filter is clean no hoses bent or kinked ? can it be fixed ? hans


The U1 code means:-
Dishwasher attempted to fill to correct level but failed. = Water tap not turned on. Turn the water tap on.
Too much foam. Rinse aid setting too high or has been spilled. = Turn the rinse aid dial to a
lower setting or wipe the spill. Incorrect detergent. Ensure that you use a detergent that is intended for a domestic automatic dishwasher. Egg yolk. Place an extra tablespoon of detergent in the dishwasher door for pre-rinsing.
Too much detergent. Use the recommended quantity of detergent
Wash pump faulty. Call your Fisher & Paykel Dealer or Authorised Service Centre.
Dishwasher not draining. = Drain hose bent or kinked. Straighten drain hose so water can flow through. Strainer blocked. Empty out the strainer and ensure the filter plate is clear of food
particles..

U1 means the unit has failed to prime with water within 3-4 minutes.
Its taking longer than expected to fill with water.
Check the fill valve, water supply problem, excessive sudzing.,reduce your detergent.
