Lid on top drawer is in the down position and drawer will not ope

I have a DD603 and the top drawer will open only with a lot of force. The lid seems to be in the down position and it leaves ugly black gasket marks on the top edge of the drawer as I open it. The power and codes are all still functioning properly.

My fisher & paykel dd603 top drawer is sticking and won't close without force. After taking it all the way out, we saw the the top piece (inside the dishwasher) is loose and is obstructing and pr


The drawer lid seal is the problem. It is likely the actuator motors controlling the lid position are either faulty or need rebalancing. Happens if the dishwasher lost power in the middle of the cycle or the drawer got pulled out when running. It is a big job to fix as the lid seal and actuator yoke and arms will need to be taken out and refitted. ALos it is likely the gaskets on the lid seal could be damaged and need replacement.

Dd603 bottom drawer locked shut, no displays with power on. How do I get the drawer open?


The thermal fuse that cuts of power to the drawer has been tripped. This means you will need to replace the heater assembly at the base of the drawer. It is not cheap - could set you back by $350-400 to replace.
To open the drawer you need to turn the mains power off and then simply pull the drawer out with a little force. The lid seal is jammed shut because the lid seal actuator motors are locked after the power failed. Do not shut the drawer back as this will damage the lid seal. You will have to call a technician to replace the heater assembly and restore power to the drawer. Hopefully the top drawer is working ok.

Appliance: Fisher&Paykel DD603 Draining


You may want to check up if the water collects in the bottom drawer when the top drawer is in wash cycle (ie, taking water from the inlet) or during the drain cycle when it is draining water out. Leave the bottom drawer open and check while the top drawer is running.

On 2 door dishwasher model DD603 bottom draw is very hard to slide out or in. Can i remove draw to inspect and oil draw runners?


Hi- Most likely the lid is stuck in the down, or partially down position. This is usually caused by the lid actuators (motors) not returning the lid to its full up position and therefore the drawer top is dragging on the lid gasket. Replacing the lid actuators should resolve the problem. You'll need a F/P tech to change those for you. Hope this helps.

Model DD603 top drawer has no power and is difficult to open/shut....Help!!


No power to top drawer,.... sounds like the main pcb is shot.... and happened when the washer was in use, so the lid assembly is clamped down, you can still open it by pulling but has alot of resistance. easy to replace the PCB, but dear to buy it!...

E-mail for Fisher Paykel DD603 manual


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.

Top drawer stuck, gaskets rubbing, no power to controls


I see the question is posted in the DD603 section, so I am not sure if I am giving the proper advice. Are you sure this is a 602/601 series? A DD603 model has lid actuator motors, not the inflatable style seal. It sounds like the lid motors are in the DOWN position. Since the machine is "dead" what may have happened is the heater plate opened up (the heater plate is a dropping resistor inline with the machine's controller) when the machine was in use and that stopped everything dead.
Double-check your model number so we know what style of lid your machine has, The difference is huge between models.

Fisher and paykel leak


most likely the actuators are bad. with the unit off push and hold the lock and start buttons, lock first then start, after about 6 seconds the display will flash 188. press the power button, ho will be displayed. push the start button until Ld is displayed. open the drawer in question and push the lock button and watch the lid both sides should go down evenly, push the lock key to move it up and down as needed. push the power button to exit diagnostics. if you notice that the lid doesn't go down evenly or if one side stays up replace the actuators, they come as a pair. call a dealer/servicer to order actuators. make sure to specify top or bottom as there is a difference. hope this helps
