For the model you have it listed under. Ther are screws on each side of the drawer panel. Remove the screws and slide the panel down and off.
Post back if you have any questions. Thanks/Mike

    Tom, There are 2 different styles for this model. One has the screws on the sides, the other just clips on. It holds pretty tight, but you should be able to hold the drawer down and pop the panel up with the palm of your hand and it should come loose.

    Let me know how it goes.

    Glad you got it figured out. The ones I have worked on had screws in them, I had to dig out a manual to find out about the ones that clip on.

    Thanks for using

How do I relace the drain flapper valve (528625P) on the bottom of the upper drawer in my Fisher Paykel 603?

9.9.1 Remove the drawer front
9.9.2 With the tub opened release the tub clips and push back the
drawer rails.
9.9.3 Carefully release the four wiring cover clips from the front
lower section of the tub taking care not to damage them.
9.9.4 Release the three clips on the underside of the tub which
retain the wiring cover.
9.9.5 Pull the tub fully open and lift it up at the front (this makes it
easier to remove the wiring cover from the rear of the tub).
9.9.6 The wiring cover may now be carefully moved forward to
release it from the rear of the tub.
9.10.6 Unclip the drain hose cuff from the motor assembly taking care not to misplace the non-return flap valve so you know where it sits.
Replace flap valve and refit in reverse order.

Not sure why you need to take the top drawer out if you have already got the bottom drawer out and only need to replace the valve in bottom drawer.

Drawer off track

if it is the drawer dishwasher, then first you need to take the front cover off carefully. Turn the mains power off and take the power plug out from socket if accessible. With a plier pull out the pins on each side of the drawer holding the front cover. Carefully pull out the front cover and leave it aside. Find where the drawer has come off the rails. Extend the rail arms on each side and try to replace the drawer on the guide rail and latch it back in. Make sure the controller and top display panel do not fall off when handling the drawer. Once the drawer is back on rail, put the top cover back and secure the pins from the sides. Put the mains power back.

Need to replace controller

Pull the drawer out and remove the plastic clips with plier (one on each side). Carefully remove the front cover and this will expose the front components of the drawer including the controller. Take a few photos to make sure you get everything back in the right way (especially the controller connectors).

Top drawer on F&P dish drawer stuck on cycle & continuously beeping

You could isolate the top drawer by taking the controller power cable out. DIsconnect mains power to dishwasher, open top drawer and remove front cover carefull after removing 2 plastic pins on each side with plier. Controller box is on left top side, remove bottom connector and cover with insulation tape. Put things back and turn power back on.

But if you want to find the fault with top drawer then that is very trick if there is no fault code on panel except beeping First clean the top panel inside door with a clean damp cloth. If this does not change the situation, then it is very likely the controller is detecting some faulty sensor - and will need to find one by one. Are you ready for it?

How do you replace the electrical cord on a dd603

You would need to remove the lower drawer and the plastic cap on the mains filter board. The link below explains how to remove the lower drawer and access the main filter board.
The plastic cap is held down with small tabs, depress the tabs and slide the cover off. The power cord is screwed down to the mains filter.

The top drawer won't stay closed. Keeps opening just by barely touching it. It will run as long as you hold it closed.

There are few possibilities
1. the dishwasher is not sitting correctly on the floor mountings. Could be a slight lean forward. Secure dishwasher per instructions.
2. the drawer has slightly come off the rails. Need to take it front cover off (remove pin on each side) and re-adjust.
3. the drawer seal is not sitting properly. Take the drawer out and check seal on top edge of the housing from inside

Please post a comment to confirm if the solution was helpful

The top drawer is binding.. it is extremely hard to close?

Either the drawer seal is damaged (top edge of housing from inside) or the drawer has come off the rails.

Remove the front cover (pull out 2 plastic pins on each side) and pull the drawer out. Inspect if it is still on rails and also check the seal. You should be able to push it back a little with your fingers. If hard or rigid, then seal mechanism needs fixing.

Need to remove front drawer panel

There are two plastic bolts on each side of the dishwasher drawer holding the front cover. Get a plier to pull these out but make sure the cover is supported so that it does not fall down.

see installation manual page 7. The location of the plastic screws is shown in insert diagram of notation 6. This is for a later model but yours should be similar.
Hope this helps. Wonder why you want to remove the front cover?

Bottom drawer is rubbing and is difficult to close and won't shut with ease

It is possible the bottom drawer has come off the rails or there is a kink in the hoses at the back of the cabinet.

You will need to take the drawer out from the cabinet and check.

The instruction on taking drawer out is on page 7 of Installation Manual which you would have got with the dishwasher. If you do not have it then you can download from

Hope this helps. You will need nose pliers to remove the side clamps holding the front cover. Be careful not to damage the parts on the front when you remove the cover.
