Question about Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603 Built-in Dishwasher
Fisher Paykel dish drawer will not close. All of a sudden, when I try to push it closed, it is rubbing against something and there is so much resistance that it will only close half way. I removed the drawer and dont see anything in the way. Any help?
We had this problem a few days ago. We called a repairperson, who recommended unplugging the unit, then replugging. It seemed to reboot it — closes as it should and works fine.

Make sure that the retaining tabs on either side of the drawer at the
lower front are engaged properly. They sometimes don't positively
engage and you will feel the difference when the drawer is pushed. It sounds as though this is the case as you state you can feel 'resistance' Undo
the tabs and re-engage them a couple of times to check. The drawer
should run smoothly without resistance when they are engaged correctly.
Check how the lower drawer moves to compare.
If the drawer is returning smoothly but feels like it's striking resistance towards the rear just before it's fully home, it's likely that the hoses are kinking/fouling behind the drawer and/or that the linkage support is broken.
If you have this older style white plastic linkage rods that hold the hoses, I would strongly recommend replacing it. It's the white plastic rod that has clamps attached to it with all the power, inlet and drainage hoses running through it.
You can get the 'retro fit linkage support' from an authorised F&P parts supplier. This is a retro fit that has specifically been designed to overcome the shortfalls of the original plastic linkage support. This consists of a metal rod and mounting plate with takes over the function of the plastic drainage support.
There are detailed instrucitons with the retro fit support which explains how to fit it. It was well under $100 when I bought one and worth the investment.
Good luck and remember always turn the power off before attempting any repairs.

I had a problem but mine was closing further, turns out there was a small object between the bottom plate and the closing of the bottom drawer. This can only happen to the bottom drawer and I felt rather lame analyzing the dish drawer when such an obvious obstruction was there, I violated the KISS principle...
