Question about Fisher and Paykel Dishwashers

1 Answer

We purchased an expensive top of the line Fisher and Paykel 2 dryer dishwasher when we did a total Kitchen rehaul over 1 year ago. We have been noticing water sitting in the bottom of the bottom drawer that smells like sulfur dioxide and now see water is making its way through the maple cabinet to below the sink. None of the plumbing under the sink is leaking. We also purchased a Fisher Paykel gas oven/range at the same time. We notice the oven does not appear to close completely with a tight seal and the heat has started to melt the oven knob just above where the oven opens.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If you have water leaks around the base of your dishwasher, you may be using a detergent that is causing too much suds. Cut back on the amount of detergent you use, and see if that makes a difference. Water that spills through the door vent is usually caused by improperly loading dishes. Leaks from the door itself may be caused by a faulty door gasket or door tightness adjustment. You should check the main tub seal, the door latch, the door gasket, the water-inlet valve, and the fill and drain hoses.

Also make sure the dishwasher is sitting level (you can adjust the front feet up or down, and many units have some type of levelers at the rear). Water under the dishwasher may be originating from a leaky hose or loose hose connection. Remove the lower front panel, and check the hoses. The pump seal may be defective, too; replacing this is a job for an appliance repairperson. An older dishwasher may corrode at the bottom, but this is fairly uncommon. If this is the case with your dishwasher, it's time for a new one.



Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Fisher & Paykel dishwasher top drawer is filling up with water when bottom drawer is ran.


It is the drain water from bottom drawer that is finding its way to the top drawer. This could be due to incorrect drain hose height. Check in installation manual. Alternatively you will have to buy an air gap kit and connect the two drain hoses separately to the kitchen sink.

Remove scratches from top of stove caused by burner top pushed back by my daughter when cleaning


You can purchase special ceramic abrasive cleaner but I doubt it will suffice. There are other glass polishers but I suggest phoning the Fisher and Paykel customer service line for their recommendations. Cheers

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.

Fisher & paykel trips the electric sockets


does it trip power as soon as its plugged in.drain hose may have gotten kinked behind drawer and broke leaking on to power board behind lower drawer. THE POWER to this thing must be removed before taking anything apart on these dishwashers. IT IS RECCOMENDED TO HAVE A TRAINED TECH WORK ON THIS they are delicate good luck!

We are now getting a U1 error code on a Fisher and Paykel Nautilus dishwasher which was in the house we purchased 3 years ago and has functioned perfectly until now. There was no manual left when we took...


U1 means the unit has failed to prime with water within 3-4 minutes.
Its taking longer than expected to fill with water.
Check the fill valve, water supply problem, excessive sudzing.,reduce your detergent.
