SOURCE: blocked drainage hose in Fisher and Paykel top dishdrawer DD603

Hello there..
How do you know the hose is blocked at all? It's rare for that to happen, I work on these machines daily as I am a Factory Authorized tech. You need to be careful in your approach to this, that is an expensive machine and it can be damaged by improper service procedures.
For starters, there is a flap valve on the end of the drain hose that would prevent you from introducing any sort of pressure backwards into the machine via the drain hose. For example, if you took and tried to blow air thru the drain hose outlet end, you would force that flap closed and create pressure in the hose. Also putting caustic drain cleaning substances is very, very bad for your machine and can cause some serious damage.

I will be happy to try to assist you, but let's start at the begining, shall we? What prompted you to conclude that the drain hose is 90% blocked? The first thing you should do is take out the rack, wash arm and tha large stainless steel filter plate. Next, pull the rotor up and out of the pump base (none of these procedures require tools) and make sure the grey impeller is not "freewheeling" or has become detached from the rotor shaft. The blue wash impeller on the top and the grey drain impeller on the bottom must be "one to one" meaning they are firmly connected to the shaft of the motor and turn together.
Next, check the tube or passageway in the drawer between the sump (where that small removeable filter screen is) and the pump's sump area (where you pulled up the rotor)
If you have any blockage, it will be in that tube.

There is some glitch here where I do not get notified of response to questions, so I will check back to this post.

SOURCE: top draw dishwasher does not empty fully

It sounds like your problem is that when one drawer tries to drain, the waste water is being pushed back into the other drawer. I had this same problem. The problem is the two drains are commonly plumbed into a Y-connection just below the anti-siphon valve. Unfortunately, the path of least resistance for the waste water is sometimes to flow back into the opposite drawer instead of out the anti-siphon valve and into the sewer...!! Here is what solved this problem for me--purchase and install a true dual air-gap. With a dual, there is zero chance of cross draining. I did this over a year ago and the problem has been completely solved.

SOURCE: How can I empty some residue water from the Fisher

Go to diagnostic mode you can turn on the drain manually. The motor has 2 directions of operating: one for pump and the other for drain. When the LCD displays P1 it means wash, when it displays P2 it is for drain.

Fisher paykel dishwasher


There will be two drain hoses plumbed into the drain pipe coming from your sink.
Have a bucket handy . Find where the power is connected and unplug it first. Then you will have an inlet hose coming from a tap under your sink , turn the water off and disconnect this hose and drain any excess water into your bucket . then remove your two drain hoses and tape the four of them together which will help when you are removing you Dishdraw .
Good luck

Dishwasher draw not emptying water at end of washing cycle


I am assuming you have a Fisher Paykel or similar double drawer dishwasher. Based on your symptoms it is very likely there is dirt or some blockage in the drain sump which needs to be cleared. If you have followed the normal procedure of cleaning filters etc, and there is no difference then you will have to take a thin rigid metal wire and run it through the channel between the rotor cavity and the drain sump. There could be a seed or a bone chip sitting there. I am assuming the pump rotor runs normal and you can hear water flow through the drain hose into outlet drain. Please provide make and model number of dishwasher for help with better diagnostic.

How do I check the drain hose?


If it is a double drawer dishwasher then there are two hoses one from top drawer and the other from lower drawer. They combine under the kitchen sink using a U adapter. Need to find which one is choked (assuming kitchen drain is ok and you have no inskinerator being used). Disconnect the U adapter from kitchen drain and empty tie to an empty bucket. Run each drawer and see which one is causing the block. (just a rinse cycle should be ok).

My dishwasher won't empty


This condition is commonly caused by:

- Drain pump jammed

When you wash your clothes, any small objects (e.g. hair pins, coins etc) are flushed down the drain pipe but often get jammed in the drain pumps impellar (this is the tiny propeller on the pump).

Firstly, place a bucket on the floor....then lower your drain hose (from your tub) into the bucket - the gravity will naturally drain the water into the bucket. Be careful to raise the hose and empty the bucket each time, until the machine is empty. Remove any wet clothes from machine (you will need the bowl to be emptied).

Once empty, you can now check the drain pump.

Turn the machin off at the power.

Locate the drain pump cover (usually near the drain hose, on the back or side). Place a large towel on the floor beneath the pump cover (as remaining water will escape onto the floor). Unscrew the drain pump cover and allow the water to drain (if your pump cover contains a filter, then clean everything from this filter).

Then, look inside the drain pump cavity for anything obstructing the little propeller (remove any objects). Insert your finger inside the cavity and rotate the little propeller - you should feel a resistance, similar to a rubber band.

Re-install the drain pump cover (or filter) and ensure it is sealed properly. Turn ON at the wall.

Fill your bucket with water (from tub) and pour into your machine.

Turn machine ON, and select the last SPIN (or drain) cycle and check if machine now drains correctly. If ok, then problem now solved and you can put the clothes back into the machine for a final rinse/spin.

If machine still not draining after inspecting the drain pump, then you may have a suspected faulty drain pump - a technician can run a diagnostic process on your machine's control pad to find the diagnostic codes.

Please do let me know, if the above process helps you solve this.

Cheers,

Flooding in both drawers of dishwasher


I suppose "flooding in both drawers of ..." implies water is not draining out. Is that right?

It is a very little information to give you any clear solutions.

Did the water get into the drawers without starting any wash program? Most likely it is the backflow from kitchen sink back through the dishwasher drain hose. Does your kitchen sink plumbing have an air gap sowehere. If so, is it clear?

If the water is the back flow then it is likely to be smelly and you do not want to run it through the dishwasher. I would suggest take the drain hose out from under the sink downpipe and drop into an empty bucket. Then take all the fixtures out from the drawers and empty out water using a small container.

Put the washer arms back and run each drawer on a short rinse cycle collecting the drain water in the bucket. If cycle runs clear, then get plumber to check the kitchen downpipe.

Reconnect drain hose.

Hope this helps.

WHEN RUNNING A CYCLE ON TOP DRAW THE BOTTOM DRAW WILL FILL UP WITH WATER NOT DRAIN


The drain hose going to the kitchen sink is blocked. If you have an insinkerator in your kitchen sink then run it first. Otherwise take the dishwasher hose out from the sink outlet and run straight into sink to see if any difference.

Dishwasher won't drain or seems to drain to other diswasher.


possible blockage at sink pipe where the drain hose connects to. the drain hose is attached to the spout on the pipe. remove the clip holding the drain hose to the spout, remove drain hose gently, put drain hose into a bucket and then turn unit on to a cycle. it should start draining straight away.if it does drain into bucket u have a blockage in the spout. put a small screwdriver into spout to unblock . then put drain hose back onto spout with clip and run a cycle. before i forget when and if the water starts draining into the bucket turn off the unit so u can put the drain hose back on. if u need more help please reply. good luck.
