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.

My dishwasher fisher pykel twin dish washer model # DD 605 , SHOWS AN ERROR CODE f7 first then shows error code f9


The top dishdrawer is hard to open or close as the lid seal actuator motors are most likely faulty or lost power. The scraping is the lid seal touching the drawer lid. The F7 and F9 error are a result of this fault with the actuator motors.
At the base of the dishwasher housing under the bottom drawer is the power board. From there the power is supplied to the controller and the motors. These motors move the lid seal into position. First turn the mains power to dishwasher off and then back on. See if this resets the motor position. If not you will have to call the technician to fix the problem. But if you are technical savy you could go to the base of the dishwasher and take the connectors of drawer 1 out from the power board and swap with drawer 2 which is working.
If power board connection is not making any difference, then motors are the likely problem. Needs a lot of expertise to replace and adjust the motors.

Most likely the lid seal is dislodged and is obstructing the bottom drawer. Need to manually operate the lid seal actuator yoke and motor to bring the seal back to normal position. Can be messy.
Will need to get the bottom drawer out from housing and work on lid seal assembly located in the main housing.

Dishdrawer: Does not start, just beeps once


Some sensors on the unit are telling the controller there is a fault.
Most likely the sensor checking the drawer is open or close is giving a fault. It is likely the drawer has come off the rail.

Dishwasher beeps but won't run


There could be several reasons for the beeping. The dishwasher checks for sensor to make sure it is in good health before it starts. Most likely the drawer close sensor is detecting fault. This is to ensure the drawer is closed fully to avoid water leaks when dishwasher is on. Sometimes sensor itself has failed and has nothing to do with position of drawer. Open top cover carefully to make sure the drawer is travelling ok on the rails. TAKE MAINS POWER CABLE OUT BEFORE WORKING ON DISHWASHER.

TOP DRAW VERY TIGHT TO OPEN AND CLOSE AND NO POWER TO TOP DRAW


The power filter board at the base of the dishwasher (under the bottom drawer) has a fault which shuts power to top drawer. The drawer is tight because lid seal actualtor motors are not operting due to lack of power, Try not to push too hard as the lid seal will be damaged.

Needs a technician to fix it unless you are good at handling dishwasher repairs. This is a very difficult one to handle for the non professional. The power board is about $100 to buy,

These dishwashers are very sensitive to grime collecting around the drawer edges. Try cleaning with a damp cloth by rubbing along the top edges and the sides where the drawer door sits flush with the body.

Also trun off power at the mains and then turn back on after a short wait.

Extremely difficult to open dishwasher door


if this is the solution other things should also be difficult, closing the door, sliding the baskets etc, - your dishwasher does not have a frame in that it is not rigid if the base is not level then your dishwasher will be twisted and things will not align, on the bottom of the machine is adjustable legs, similar to a fridge, a spirit level on the top not only front to back and side to side but diagonal as well and adjust the legs hopefully fixes your problem

Sounds like your lid actuators are not opening completely, they move the lid up and down. They are prone to failure, F/P has new actuators, German made, that can be installed and would probably solve the problem.

It's look like something is obstructing the spray arm path. Follow manufacturer instructions on dishwasher's user guide pages 23,24 (how to clean all filters). In case you don't have the user guide,let me know by mail to dovdror@013.net and I will forward it to you. Good luck!
