The only way to fix this is get the drawer out by

1 Open the drawer fully.
2 Depress the right-hand tub clip and push it back about 30mm (1
inch). Repeat for the left-hand side.
3 The tub may now be lifted up off the drawer runners.
4 Slide both runners back into the product.
5 Refit in reverse manner.

That way you can get access to the top seal - which is called the lid.

You will have to see how much of the lid is still left behind hanging on the top.

To remove lid
1 Remove tub assembly as per earlier instructions
2 On the right-hand side of the lid release the two tabs that clip the lid
to the yoke. Repeat for the left-hand side.
3 The lid is now free to slide out of the chassis.
4 Refit in the reverse manner taking care that the lid is fitted the
correct way around. The front is indicated on the top of the lid.

If the whole lid is intact then it may be a matter of fitting it back. Othwerwise you will get one from fisher and paykel parts

To fit the lid back you will have to check if the actuator yokes are not broken. In which case you will have to take these out and replace with the new one. (comes as part of lid kit if you buy it).

Remove Yoke
1 Remove the lid as per instructions above.
2 Release the lid actuator connecting arm from the bottom of the yoke
by squeezing the two tabs towards each other.
3 Slide the front of the yoke downwards at an angle until it moves out
of the track in the rear of the trim, and is clear of the chassis flange.
4 Refit in the reverse manner taking care that the yoke is the correct
way around.

When putting back you will need to align the lid actuator motors on both sides correctly so that the yoke moves the same distance when activated. Otherwise the lid will have a scew.

Hope all this helps. If unsure you will need to contact a technician.

Top drawer of my 8yr old fisher paykel dishwasher got stuck opening and now cant get it back in , botom drawer works but no power to top drawer can it be fixed ?


Not sure if your dishwasher problem has been fixed yet.

The lid seal actuator motors on the top drawer are stuck due to lack of power and therefore you cannot close the drawer. Don't try to force it in as this will cause damage.

First thing to do is to restore power to the drawer. The power comes from the filter board sitting at the base of the dishwasher. You will have to disconnect power to the dishwasher and get both the drawers out. This will give you access to the power filter board.

Refer item 15 in this diagram. It is likely the board is faulty and it supplies the lid seal actuator motor power to both drawers. (separate connections).

You have to take the front cover of each drawer out to remove the drawers from the rails. But be careful not to damage the cable and hose when pulling out. Keep a chair or something next to dishwasher to hold the top drawer.

Once you fix the filter board and restore power to actuator motors, push the lid seal up by hand to make sure it does not block the lid.
Hope this fixes the problem.

Dishwasher won't open top drawer or turn on--


Wonder if you tried to turn the power off at the mains and back on. If that does not release the drawer then most likely the lid seal has locked up.

I am assuming the bottom drawer is operational.
Turn the power to dishwasher off and take the bottom drawer out from its housing carefully without tugging the hoses etc at the back. This will expose the power module at the base. This supplies the power to the lid seal actuator motors on both drawers. Disconnect the leads going to top drawer and turn power back on. This should free up the lid seal - might need a little pull to get drawer to open. Connect everything back in (disconnect power first) and see if it works.

If this is unlclear then drop a comment otherwise rate the solution to help fixya help you better in future.

Dd6031 find it very difficult to close top drawer-seems something is blocking it-it has just happened


The likely culprit is the drawer seal which is located at the inside top of the housing.

YOu will need to take the drawer out by pulling the plastic pins on each side to release the front cover. Turn off mains power to the unit.

Inspect the top inside to see if the seal is broken or rigid. It should move in if you press. If rigid then the actuator motors are misalinged or faulty. Needs service.

Hopefully if the seal is ok, then it is likely the drawer had come off the rail and was not going to the end. Put drawer back in making sure it is sitting with ease on the track. Replace front cover and test.

I have a fisher & paykel dishwasher. It has 2 drawers and the top drawer is stuck. It will open if I force it, so i'm using the bottom drawer. It just recently happened. Is it hard to fix?


The lid seal of the top drawer is broken or has come off. To get to it you will have to take the two drawers out carefully along with the cables and hoses intact.

Then feel the top underside of the cabinet for the lid seal. Depending on the problem it will have to be replaced. There is an intricate mechanism of actuator arms and motors that drive it. I hope these are ok.

If you are lucky maybe the drawer has just come off the rails and you could put it back and it will be ok.

Please rate this solution if helpful otherwise drop a comment

Th bottom drawer is very hard to push closed, it seems to be dragging against the piece that seperates the bottom and top drawers


The piece is the drawer seal for the bottom drawer. Your will have to get the bottom drawer out from the housing. The drawer seal is mounted on the inside top of the bottom housing.

Check if it broken or just out of alignment. It is a bit complex to fix as it involves some precision to align the actuator arms on each side which is driven by motors.

Call a technician if you are not comfortable with electrical parts.

Loose sealing tray in to drawer keeps drawer from sliding


You might be correct in your assessment. The top drawer door seal has come undone. It is a very labour intensive process to put it back. Could also mean the actuators that operate the seal are undone.

To get to the actuators and seal you will have to get the drawer out from its housing and then give it a shot. If you are confident of getting to the next step then post a comment. Otherwise a qualified technician is your best bet.

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.

The top drawer of my dishwasher has just become extremely difficult to open or close, bottom drawer is fine. Can anyone suggest what the problem may be?


Sorry if this seems so simple, but try unplugging the dishwasher and plugging it back in. Ours had the same problem after our house cleaner ran it, it turned out that the cycle had been interrupted and the top-seal motor had not retracted the top-seal.
That worked for us, good luck w/yours.
