Question about Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603SS Built-in Dishwasher
Your dishwasher has a top lid to seal the tube when it in operation. The seal mode is achieved by 2 actuator valves on both side of the housing pulling your top lid down. Model from 603 to current actuators are electric motor. For previous models they are vacuum pump activation.
When the actuators are bad they are either not pulling down the top lid causing a leak, or not releasing top lid back to its original position causing the lid stuck and the tub can not be pulled out as in your case.
Let's go to diagnostic test mode to see if you can retrieve the the actuator hence the tube out.
1- Press Lock button and start/pause key until the display showing up.
2- Press Power to show HO.
3- Press start button to advance the display until you see LD or LS, if you pass, keep doing it to get it back in a loop.
4- When at LD or LS, press lock to turn on, press a agin to turn off.
5- Listen to the sound of Actuators and at the same time, try to pull the tube out.
6- When it is done, just press the Power button to get out od the diagnstic mode.
7- If you are lucky, if just the seal to replace then it is easier than repalcing the actuators. Good luck.
