To determine if your pump work, before attempting access from the bottom of the top drawer: You can manually pump the water out by doing the following:
1- Press the Power button to turn off the display.
2- Press the Lock button and then the start button the same tim. Hold them until the display showing up.
3- If the display is not clear with all the characters, press power button to see clear the display.
4- The first display is bL, then Er,Ld..dd, FU, P1, P2...by pressing the Start button to go by the sequence until P2 (drain). If you miss, be patient to continue press and release the start button to get back to P2.
5 When is is at P2, press Lock button to tun on the drain. When you hear the water flowing to the drain, you could pull the top drain to see how the water is draining.
6- When the water is out, press the lock button again to stop it.
7-When it is done, press the Power button to get out of manual mode.

If this is working, then your water is there because you are running the bottom and your air gap allow back flow to the top drawer.
Please let me know if this is not the case.

Hello,

Remove the rotor and use a cable tie or wire tie to push through the hole closest to you at the bottom of where the rotor sits.

If you cannot find the hole, remove the rotor from the bottom drawer (if it drains properly) and you will see it.

The cable tie "should" remove any foreign material blocking the drain.

Hope this helps you!?

Fisher & Paykel dishwasher top drawer is filling up with water when bottom drawer is ran.


It is the drain water from bottom drawer that is finding its way to the top drawer. This could be due to incorrect drain hose height. Check in installation manual. Alternatively you will have to buy an air gap kit and connect the two drain hoses separately to the kitchen sink.

Fisher paykel cross draining


As the drawers share a common outlet to the kitchen sink drain, it is the drain water from bottom drawer going to top drawer. Can happen if the drain hoses are not following the correct specifications for installation. An air gap kit is available to solve the problems.

F2 code on Fisher Paykel dishwasher


The problem is linked to rotor operation during discharge cycle. By replacing the rotor with bottom will only address part of the problem. There is very likely some obstruction in the pump cavity. This is the small channel connecting the drain sump and the pump cavity. Grab a thin but rigid wire and clear this channel. Usually a bone chip or some seed.
Also confirm if the top rotor worked ok when you moved it to the bottom drawer.

Washer leaks from the front - not a major leak but noticeable none the less. Have checked hoses but no problem there. Can you help?


1. Remove the lid of the washing machine by removing 2 screws from behind.(Power and water off etc.) You will probably see rust on the steel above the drawer unit.
2. Remove the drawer.
3. Label all hoses leading to the drawer unit (for re-assembly) and remove the hoses.
4. Remove the drawer unit - a bit fiddly. (2 screws at front of washer at either side of drawer unit need to be removed.)
5. Remove the lid from the drawer unit. Thoroughly wash out the drawer unit. Also wash out the drawer. (I forgot whether the lid can be removed before removing the whole unit from the machine.)
6. There is a thin hose leading from the drawer unit to the drain in the back of the washer - make sure this hose is not blocked. Remove hose and run water through it.
7. Re-assemble everything into the washer.
8. This is the controversial bit: (The drawer unit should be fully installed but the drawer is still removed)
- Silicone seal the gap between the drawer unit and the plastic at the front of the washer, (Seal all round, but especially at the top. It should be possible to do this neatly, Try to get silicone fully into the gap, not just between the two pieces of plastic. (I flexed down the plastic at the top of the drawer unit to get silicone into the gap.
9. Replace the drawer and wait a day before using the machine.

The top drawer started getting very loud - maybe the water pump? Now it looks as if no water is getting into the drawer so dishes remain dirty. The bottom works fine, and is not loud when running.


Yes it is likely the pump rotor is seized. I am assuming the water goes in to the drawer but does not get moved around by the washer arm. This is the function of the rotor. This rotor also acts as a drain pump in the drain cycle.

Top draw dishwasher does not empty fully


Try swapping the motor rotors between drawers and see if the fault moves drawers? If not try swapping the motor controller modules over and see if the fault moves if so you need a new module. Cheers

F&P double drawer (DD603) won't empty


Ok you need to remove the motor rotor it's under the spray arm and comes out like a light bulb from the top draw and check for anyting stuck under it or any damage done to it. Try swapping it with the one out of the bottome drawer and see if that works. When you first start the washer does it drain all the water?? if still no luck try swapping the motor contoller modules (computer board) from the top drawer to the bottom drawer and retry both drawers ,if the fault moves drawers with the part, then that part is faulty cheers

After 2 minutes top washer blinks. Water does not drain


When I opened the top drawer the water seems to be accumulating in the drawer and no water is draining. The drain tube appears normal and not kinked in any way.

Model 601V2 dishdraw showing U3 error message


I have had my Fisher Paykel dishdrawer for 8 years and it has never completely worked. I would get a U3 code on the top drawer intermittently. I have had my drains rerouted twice, LP - HP reset, service men replace the back flow flap and mother boards without luck... until I was able to get my hands on the service manual. Turns out the solution is quite easy. If you have a problem with the U3 code it means the drawer is not draining appropriately, The washer only gives a preprogrammed 60 sec to drain the drawer. So if your drawer is overfilled, it will think it has a drain problem. The following is taken from the service manual...

"U3 - Time to fill was too short, indicating water was still in the tub.
Possible Causes:
· Drain pump is blocked.
· Drain hose is blocked.
· Sprayarm or rotor not turning
freely.
· Motor electronics have failed.
· Machine set to 'LP' on a high
pressure water supply.

The tub fills with approximately 2.2 litres of water, level with the base of the spray arm attachment. Once this level is reached, the wash pump (which has sensed the fill at 30 second intervals during the fill), becomes primed and pumps the water through the spray arm which will then rotate.
The water level is monitored by sensing the motor load through the electronics."


The solution is to turn your water supply valve part of the way on to limit the gpm flow to the drawer. This way, the drawer will not have over-filled in the 30 sec it took to sense the motor load. I have tried it and wow no more U3. Hope it makes sense and hope it works for you.
