SOURCE: Fisher & Paykel Dishwasher leaked

From what you describe, drain water from the top drawer is getting into the bottom drawer or waste water from the disposer is backing up into the bottom drawer.

1. Each drawer has its own drain hose. Each hose should terminate at the drain point with a 'Y' adapter.
2. Inspect the drain point (under the sink where the drain pipes are) to make sure this 'Y' adapter is present. (you should see two drain hoses from the DW). If not present, then the DW drain lines are not installed properly. (Someone took a shortcut and installed the 'Y' adapter behind the DW)
3. If terminated properly, make sure the drain hoses extend upward as they leave the drain point.

It is important the drain lines are connected properly to ensure proper drainage from the DW. Consult the installation manual for complete details.

SOURCE: The top drawer of my Fisher Paykel two drawer dishwasher will not close all the way. Something appears to be stopping it. How do I fix it?

To find out what might be blocking it, you can remove the drawer. There are two tabs one on each side of the drawer near the bottom front. Push those in and pull the drawer out. You can lift the drawer up and push the slides in to get them out of the way. Then you should be able to see into the cabinet and what if anything is stuck behind the drawer

SOURCE: Fisher & Paykel DD601 top drawer won't start.

Most likely the micro-switch that tells the controller that the drawer is closed is broken. Its a tiny little black switch at the back of the left drawer slide, it had a metal actuator that is prone to breaking.

SOURCE: I have a Fisher Paykel dishwasher with water in top drawer

You need a Air gap kit designed by Fisher and Paykel to address this problem. It is pricey but it is worthy. I used this and very happy with it since no back flow problem from one while other running. Here is a link to order it.http://www.fisherpaykelparts.net/product/WT50/WT50-Dual-Air-Gap-Kit/

Fisher and paykal DD. Top drawer stuck on Eco and fast wash. Buttons not responding to touch.


If this is part of warranty repair then the technician should be asked to come back and fix. Try to turn off mains power and then use a clean damp cloth and run on the program selection panel on top of drawer lid. But most likely some dirt on the underside of the panel. Need to take controller out and clean it.

Model 920 shows U1 then leaks then goes to F1


Hi
Error code U1 means that the dishwasher might be taking longer time then required to fill the water and water is not draining properly as something might be blocking the drain pump assembly due to which the water is leaking. To solve this issue you'll have to take the front lower access panel out and then clean the drain pump assembly completely, also clean the impeller and chopper assembly located at the bottom of the unit. Also check the water supply and spray arm. After this is done the issue should be resolved, if not then check the float switch mechanism and make sure that it is fine. Error F1 on your fisher & paykel means an overfill condition. One of the most common causes for an overfill fault is that the dishwasher cannot pump out the dirty water due to a plugged drain hose. Check the drain hose if it is clogged. Now remove the bottom drawer from the unit to inspect the flood switch. Remove the wire harness cover on the underside of the drawer. With the bottom cover off, unclip the wire harness, fill hose, and drain hose. Then unclip the linkage at the back of the drawer and lift the drawer off the slider arms. Now' you'll be able to look at the flood switch. Note the positions of the wires on the flood switch and remove them. Then unclip the switch housing from the base panel. The switch housing contains one switch for each drawer. The switches are wired normally closed (NC) and each switch has three spade connections, so it's important to note where the wires went. Now clean the contacts and let it dry. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

What does the small white plastic tube attached to the drain hose and wiring harness accomplish? I have been having an F1 problem with both draws, have just found this tube in the top drawer harness...


It is most definately a cause of leaking. Its function is to hold the hoses and wiring together to swing behind the drawer when it closes. If it has snapped the hoses get caught between the lid and the drawer and cannot seal properly. The new replacement is a retrofit kit that uses a swinging metal arm off a bracket that you screw to the back left corner of the frame, thus never breaking again. I would recommend replacing the bottom one aswel, those old plastic links are rubbish :-)

RE: Fischer paykal F1 code


F1 fault means the flood switch on the base of the dishwashers has been activated.
nine times out of ten its the lid motors.
You can remove the two kick plates on the bottom of the dishwasher.
Dry out the water in the base with a sponge.
only one draw will be leaking water??
This allows you to use the second draw until a serviceman shows up.
Dry the base out A.S.A.P, because you have a electronic board that sits on the base. cheers
