    Lets start again, the bottom drawer works and does a full wash cycle, but the lid is stuck in the down position.

Try this.

There is a small flap valve (Part #525414P) that is about the size of a dime that isnt closing properly. Best bet is to replace the valves and try to get a DUAL air gap in its place where you can hook up each drawer to its own hose on the air gap.

Opened the drawer while it was running now the drawer will not close


Turn off the mains power and back on and see if there is any change.

The drawer lid is stuck in close position when you opened the drawer. Try to select another program on the panel and see if it clears the stuck lid.

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.

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.

Sounds like your lid actuators are not opening completely, they move the lid up and down. They are prone to failure, F/P has new actuators, German made, that can be installed and would probably solve the problem.

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.

Lid is stuck in "down" position on the right only.


k the only thing you can do is try starting then stopping each drawer to see if the lid will go back up if not it will even be a hard one for the serviceman. you can't swap the wires like you've done it will cause large problems like a jammed lid sorry.

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.

The top drawer on our DD603 top lid doesn't seal allowing water to spray out and down the sides.
