Question about Fisher and Paykel Dishwashers

1 Answer

My Fisher Paykel dishwasher is model #DD6051. After about 1 1/2 years, the top drawer is not filling with water. The fault code looks to be U1. The bottom drawer fills and runs fine. Would you have any idea what the issue might be? Thank you very much.

Hi,

Unplug the Washer for Few Minutes, say 30 minutes and then Turn it ON. If the problem Persists, then read :-

U1 Heavy and Rinse LED

Machine has failed to prime with water within approx. 3 minutes

Reasons for this code:

1. The water supply is not turned on

2. The machine is syphoning

3. The spray arm is not in place

4. Excessive foaming

5. The Inlet Valve has failed

6. The electronic controller has failed

7. Rotor not fitted correctly

But, as the Top Drawer is Not Filling ( Bottom One is Fine ), the water valve is at fault. You can remove the bottom drawer and check the fill valve screens if the screens are good then the valve will need to be replaced. On those two cycles its timed not monitored by the hall sensor. You can also check the hall sensor on the bottom in the middle and ensure the wire harness is attached good and does not have a loose connection. But the valve will most likely be at fault.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

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.

Fisher paykel cross draining


As the drawers share a common outlet to the kitchen sink drain, it is the drain water from bottom drawer going to top drawer. Can happen if the drain hoses are not following the correct specifications for installation. An air gap kit is available to solve the problems.

DCS bottom dishwasher drawer u1 code: begins cycle, runs a couple minutes then stops and beeps


Hi there Ypowers, U1 fault code relates to the fill system. Is the tap turned on, is the spray arm position correctly and free to rotate, nothing blocking it?. I hope this helps regards Gary.

Model 920 shows U1 then leaks then goes to F1


Hi
Error code U1 means that the dishwasher might be taking longer time then required to fill the water and water is not draining properly as something might be blocking the drain pump assembly due to which the water is leaking. To solve this issue you'll have to take the front lower access panel out and then clean the drain pump assembly completely, also clean the impeller and chopper assembly located at the bottom of the unit. Also check the water supply and spray arm. After this is done the issue should be resolved, if not then check the float switch mechanism and make sure that it is fine. Error F1 on your fisher & paykel means an overfill condition. One of the most common causes for an overfill fault is that the dishwasher cannot pump out the dirty water due to a plugged drain hose. Check the drain hose if it is clogged. Now remove the bottom drawer from the unit to inspect the flood switch. Remove the wire harness cover on the underside of the drawer. With the bottom cover off, unclip the wire harness, fill hose, and drain hose. Then unclip the linkage at the back of the drawer and lift the drawer off the slider arms. Now' you'll be able to look at the flood switch. Note the positions of the wires on the flood switch and remove them. Then unclip the switch housing from the base panel. The switch housing contains one switch for each drawer. The switches are wired normally closed (NC) and each switch has three spade connections, so it's important to note where the wires went. Now clean the contacts and let it dry. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

F & P DD603 starts to wash then beeps & flashes U1 - Fill Fault. I have cleaned both drawers & replaced all parts correctly, still comes up with U1.


Have you checked whether you are getting the water supply to the dishwasher. Check if there is no kink in the water hose.

If no problem with water supply then check the water pressure rating is OK for the dishwasher.

Bottom drawer works fine but the top drawer does not. It keeps alarming when we try to us it. We keep getting U1 alarm


U1 alarm is related to an issue with filling water into the dishwasher. If there is water already in the dishwasher you will need to empty it manually with a small container. Check if the sprayer arm is moving freely. You should turn off the mains supply power and water before you attempt the above procedure. It is possible the solenoid controlling the water inlet into the drawer is faulty. This will be evident if you hear a click but no water is coming in.

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.

Pull the bottom drawer out !!!!! To do this on the left and right sides of the bottom drawer you need to pull the pins (Plastic) then pull it out it has hoses still connected pull out and turn on side look in the back left corner (with Pwr off) there is a board there and it has a water (Flood sensor) on it make sure it is dry this is what the Fault code is
