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!...

Top drawer can not be open


If this is a double drawer dishwasher and bottom drawing is functional but top drawer won't open means the controller on top drawer is faulty or power circuit is locked. If turning the mains power off and back on makes no difference then controller could be the problem. One way to test is to take the controller from bottom drawer and replace that in the top drawer. This requires a lot of patience and experience with electronic stuff. If you are not brave enough to test then call the technician. The controller is about $200 to buy. Make sure the mains power socket is taken out before working on the dishwasher internals.

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.

The top dishwasher of my Fisher&paykel Paykel DDd603 &DS603 model ontinuallly beeps. I tried unplugging the power for several hours and it still beeps. Any recommendations ??


Assuming the bottom dishdrawer is working ok, it is likely the controller on the top drawer is either faulty or sensing some incorrect signal. If pressing any of the panel buttons makes no difference, then most likely the controller is faulty.

By the way I am unclear why you mention two models in your problem description. DD603 is a double drawer dishwasher and DS603 is a single drawer unit.

DD603 model & top drawer totally dead, no lights but bottom drawer 100% Your thoughts plse.


possible causes
  • top drawer controller has lost power - replace power filter plate located at the base of dishwasher under bottom drawer controller
  • itself is faulty if you are getting some lights on the panel
  • thermal relay has tripped. It is located inside the heater element at the base of the drawer. The whole heater needs to be replaced.
Make sure the dishwasher is disconnected from the mains power supply when working on it

F&P dishwasher (DD603i) has no power to top drawer


No power to the top drawer needs to be verified.

Are you saying the lights are blank and when you press the start buttion nothing happens?

One reason the controller can shut the power is that the heater overload protection thermal resistor has opened. Unfortunately the only way to fix this is to replace the entire heater plate at the bottom of the drawer.

To confirm if the controller is operational or not, press Keylock and Start/ Pause button together for 5 sec (press Keylock first) and see if the Lights light up. If nothing happens then either the power has shutoff as mentioned above or controller is faulty.

Depending on your familiarity with such equipment you could try to replace and fix. I am not quite sure what the new model you mention is. I believe all DD603 models have power to the 2 drawers coming from the base board.

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.

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.
