The U3 error code could mean a few things. Not sure if you get it in both or just one drawer.

It could mean there is something blocking the drain pump. Lift the filter plate and drain filter. Then remove the rotor by disengaging the collar holding the impeller and rotor assembly. clean the area including the channel between the rotor cavity and the drain sump. Put everything back and test.

If this does not get rid of the U3 then it is possible there is a kink in the drain hose. Pull the drawers out and check behind. If nothing visible then other possibility is the inlet water pressure setting is not correct. If you know how to read the water pressure setting from the display then compare the setting on the two drawers.

Please post a comment to let me know what you find.

SOURCE: Error U3

That's a "Low Pressure" fault and it's possible you may only need to reset the mode. This question is posted under DD603 but a U3 code is usually associated with the 602 models. I am including an instruction for you on how to check the setting. Start with that first, it is easy to do.

SOURCE: beeping and red light stating U3

Hi and welcome.
You posted your question in the DD/DS603 series section, but code U3 is usually seen on a DD/DS601 or DD602 series. When this code appears, most comon cause is that the machine is set in LP or LOW PRESSURE mode and needs to be set to HP or HIGH PRESSURE.
The fault is sensing water level too high in the drawer, which can also be caused by a blocked drain or inoperative pump. I can tell you exactly how to tell if the machine in in the wrong mode if you can tell us the correct model number. The machine's pump/drain system can easily be checked by putting the machine in diagnostic mode and running the drain pump.

My SanDisk 1gb flash drive says i only have 1 try left at trying to unlock it. I didn't even know i had locked it. Can you please Help?



This will get the drive back, but you WILL lose the data. If you need the data. I do not know the answer. Repost your question to go to Sandisk site below


'.............U3 smart drives come preinstalled with the U3 Launchpad which emulates the Windows OS start menu, and controls program installation and hence facilitate the portability of software. However, if you would like to use the USB flash drive or memory key as a pure normal USB mass storage device, or you don't use operating system that U3 supports (i.e Windows XP and Windows 2000 operating systems), or you simply feel that U3 Launchpad and applications have bugs such as unable to eject due to locked files in use, consent on privacy and automatic installation of U3 software and pop-up etc, you can uninstall and remove the U3 Launchpad from the USB storage device.


To remove and delete the U3 Launchpad, you need to download U3 Launchpad uninstallers or U3 Launchpad Removal Tool that remove the U3 Launchpad and re-configure the USB drive to be a single mass storage USB drive. Currently, U3 Launchpad uninstallers are only available for and must be run on Windows XP or Windows 2000 machine. When uninstalling, the U3 smart drives USB device has to be plugged in with U3 Launchpad running.


U3 Launchpad Removal Tool for SanDisk USB U3 devices can be downloaded here, http://u3.sandisk.com/


WARNING: U3 Launchpad removal is irreversible. You won't be able to install U3 again. Beside, backup your data before begin uninstallation process as ALL data will be erased.


UPDATE: It's impossible to reinstall U3 LaunchPad........."

Loud beeping sound on start up , now will not start up , power ok


First remove the Ram and boot the system without it. If you hear continuous two beeps, then the problem is with the Ram, you need to replace it. If nothing happens, then your cpu or your motherboard is gone. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

Fisher & Paykel DS605 starts cycle, stops, beeps, shows U3 error.


U3 means the tub filled to quickly or the water failed to drain. Do you have very high water pressure? are you using the wrong detergent? eg you can't use tablets (powerballs) etc in the unit. Try putting half a cup of white vinegar in the tub to kill any foam. Check there isn't anything stuck under the motor rotor inside the tub and the there's no signs of damage. Put the drain hose in a bucket and see if the water drains ok when the unit starts? If everything seems ok I'd suspect the main motor controller module but it may be worth getting an appliance tech to inspect unit first as it's hard without seeing this unit. feel free to ask any questions. Cheers

Ps3 says cannot start the correct hard disk was not found


try safemode
hold down the power button while the console is in standby. the light will go from red to green.it will beep once flash green beep again, and then beep a third time. after the third beep the light will turn red.

once the light is red, take your finger off the power button and place it back on the power button. the light will go from red to green, beep once flash and then beep twice quickly. after it does the double beep, take your finge roff. the light will stay green and you'll get a screen asking you to connect the controller.

after connecting the controller, try option 3, or whichever option is restore filing system. this can possibly correct media loading and will 95% of the time fix the console when it freezes before loading up your icons(the xmb)
