Dd603 top drawer won't start

I have a DD/603. The bottom drawer works fine. The top drawer runs through its cycle for several minutes, then pauses and flashes the "scrub brush" icon. It won't start again until I press the "Start/Pause" button. Then it runs fine for a couple more minutes. Repeat. ... OK, now it keeps giving the not-ready beeps, thinks it's open.

Re: dd603 top drawer won't start

On the hinge slide there is a micro switch the draw needs to be removed to locate it.

Top drawer stops, will restart if I push start

Sounds like a micro switch problem to me, telling the dishwasher that the drawer is open when it is not actually open.

My top dishwasher drawer won't finish through the cycle. It runs fine on rinse only but not any of the wash cycles. It stops mid cycles, beeps like it has been paused, then tries to start again

Try to feel the temperature of water inside the dishwasher. If it is normal room temperature for the hot wash cycles then it is likely the heater is faulty.
It is not easy to replace unless you have good experience with repairing dishwashers.

Appliance: Fisher&Paykel DD603 Draining

You may want to check up if the water collects in the bottom drawer when the top drawer is in wash cycle (ie, taking water from the inlet) or during the drain cycle when it is draining water out. Leave the bottom drawer open and check while the top drawer is running.

We have a DD603 dishwasher and the top drawer has stopped working. The LED does not come on at all, but the bottom drawer works fine. Is it a fuse or something else?

Hi- These is the possibility that the control lock has been activated. Press the far right button on the control badge or the LCD and hold it down until it beeps. If the Lock is engaged the key symbol will appear on the LCD. More probable is that your controller is bad. Hope this helps.

E-mail for Fisher Paykel DD603 manual

Josh, you will need to have a Tech out to look at it... F/P will not sell you parts to repair it. The F1 indicates that the flood switch has been tripped. There are many possible causes for this but probably the upper drawer link support has broken and is getting stuck between the lid and the drawer in which case you will need a new lid and link support.
