The dishwasher while running began to beep constantly and then BOTH drawers began to beep with blue lights and read F1 with the small picture of a wrench. It will not turn off but keeps beeping with flashing lights.

My fisher & paykel dd603 top drawer is sticking and won't close without force. After taking it all the way out, we saw the the top piece (inside the dishwasher) is loose and is obstructing and pr

The drawer lid seal is the problem. It is likely the actuator motors controlling the lid position are either faulty or need rebalancing. Happens if the dishwasher lost power in the middle of the cycle or the drawer got pulled out when running. It is a big job to fix as the lid seal and actuator yoke and arms will need to be taken out and refitted. ALos it is likely the gaskets on the lid seal could be damaged and need replacement.

The lid seal on the top drawer is faulty and needs replacement. It might be cut or damaged and is obstructing the drawer from closing. THis also may have caused the flood switch to trip as water can leak if drawer is not sealed.

How to get bottom drawer out of fisher paykel dd6031

I wasn't able to find an exact match to your reported model (DD603I?), but all of the DD60xx models appear to have the same drawer removal process:

Hello, I have a Fisher and Paykel DD603I and both drawers have a red light on the play/pause button and won't stop beeping. Can you please help me with a solution to this problem?

It sounds like the dishwasher is in flood mode. You would need to dry up the water in the base pan and test. The link below is a video that explains how to repair your fisher paykel dishwasher.

Hi, I have a Fisher Paykel DD603I (integrated) dishdrawer unit. The bottom drawer soap dispenser has water in it after it runs (and leftover soap), and there is a small amount of water sitting in the...


Dishwashers use Bi-Metal strip to allow the dispenser to open/close. This strip when heat up causes the soap door spring to open up the dispenser. If this strip is not heated doesn't allow the door to open. The strip may not be getting 120V or maybe disconnected. Newer (plastic liner) dishwashers use a wax motor to open the soap dispenser. The plunger inside the wax motor slowly moves and pushes the plunger and door open. And, if this wax motor doesn't receive 120 volts, then it'll not work. Please check the voltage to the wax motor/Bi-metal strip; also inspect the connections to these. Hope this helps...

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

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.

Make sure the unit is level. Remove drawer. On the inside of the cabnet there are the drawer runners on iether side. Behind these there are a pair catches. If one or both of these are latched back when they shouldn't be, ie. when the drawer is open, they will obstruct the drawer from closing fully and fail to hold it closed.

Hope this helps

Fisher & Paykel dishwasher drawer won't run, beeps F2 error code

Craig, we had virtually the same situation.  The repair man  came and it took 2 minutes to fix.  The problem was that the bottom drawer had not been used for a couple of years and thus the impellor had jammed.  to fix it take out the basket, lift off the rotor arm and unscrew the knob.  Then just work the impellor around with your fingers until it frees.  It then worked perfectly.  We will use the bottom often from now on to prevent this happening again. By now the left over pumpkin pie will be a bit green!!
