Question about Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603SS Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

My kids put liquid dish soap (not for dish washers) into the hole where you put special rinse product. We got all the soap out of the hole and took towels to dry out the tub, but F1 comes on even when the washer is turned off. We have the double tall dish drawer in stainless steel. Even though they did not put anything in the bottom drawer it too comes on by it self and shows F1. I can not find our manual. Please help. Thank you so much. Kim Toth

You can download the user manual but that may not help you solve the problem.

I can see that there has been foaming in the dishwasher due to the incorrect detergent which caused the flood switch to trip.

You will have to take both drawers out and dry out the flood switch at the base of the housing from inside. You will use towels and hair dryer.

Make sure the power is turned off at the circuit breaker.

See the installation manual on page 7 step 2 to find out how to remove the drawer. Make sure you don't pull out carefully so the hoses at the back don't get stretched.

How much salt goes in dish washer


You don't put salt in a dishwasher unless you want to ruin it.

2. You ONLY use a detergent specifically for dishwasher use as the cleaning agent and you 3/4 fill the soap dispenser in the washer (normally fitted into the door on the inside) with the dishwasher powder.

3. If there is a separate small compartment in your dish washer for a "rinse aid" solution to be used, you can use a rinse aid product designed for dishwasher use only. If there is no rinse aid compartment (this is also normally fitted to the inside of the door - if fitted on your machine) then you cannot use a rinse aid in your washer.

4. Don't use any other product in the dish washer.

Grit in clean glasses and on dishes


Mary do you have a water softener? If so, only use 1 tablespoon of dry dishwashing detergent per wash. Don't use tablets or liquid soaps. Too much soap will wear down the items you wash, leave streaks and pock your dishes. That might be what the sandy grit is. Also, to get rid of the grit inside of your washer you can buy a special dishwasher cleaner at almost any hardware store. Always try to use a rinse-aid. Make sure your drain filters are clean. Hope this helps. Jewels

Dirty cups and baby bottles after dishwasher has been run


Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. One of the biggest causes of the symptom you describe is that there is a partial blockage of the drain. The blockage areas are most often in the "Air Gap" A device that looks like an inverted 5 oz Dixie cup on the back of the sink with no cone shape. Food particles collect in the very top of that and slow down the drain process. Because of that the dishwasher doesn't completely drain between cycles. So what you get is recycled previous cycle water in the rinse.

Other places where blockages occur are at the garbage disposal side inlet hole. And the last place is under the wash arm tower / mini riser in the pump impeller outlet area. To clean under the lower wash arm riser it requires diassembly and a good memory of how everything came apart / goes back together when your done cleaning.

Extra suds due to liquid soap in the machine overflowing. How do I drain it?


This is strange. Are you using an electric dishwasher liquid soap, OR are you using a dish soap that you manually use to wash dishes?
REGULAR dish soap liquid that is not specifically made for dishwashers creates a foamy suds with lots of bubbles that will in fact bubble out of your dishwasher. on the other hand. Electric Dishwasher detergent will NOT create foamy suds with lots of bubbles.
Switch your soap. The next cycle any residue suds or soap will be gone as long as you use the proper liquid detergent. I would also recommend using a rinse agent which further helps break down and rinse off residue.

Palmolive liquid detergent was put in rinse aid recepticle.


I don't understand your question. But, I am going to try to answer based on a "given" I picked. Please read on.

Is the problem you put non dish washing soap into the dishwasher?

... and you want to remove it (soap) without removing ...

the receptacle?

the machine?

If you have non dishwashing soap in a dishwasher, the BIG problem is the suds, followed by the soap is not effective, and it cannot necessarily be removed from the dishes. The suds go from a couple little drops of soap to enough suds to fill Grand Central Station, including your kitchen. Am I close?

What I did when (I did it) this happened is, I put a product called "Anti-Foam" (I just HAPPEN to have a hot-tub) into the dishwasher which killed the suds. I cleaned the mess up off the floor, ran the rinse cycle only, dishwasher empty. Then, I ran the dishwasher again with dishwasher soap to make sure it was clean. THEN, I took the non dishwasher soap out of the cupboard where it sat next to the dishwasher soap and put it elsewhere!

So, what should you do? Go to the pool and hot tub place near you and get a small bottle of "Anti Foam" and do as I did. Expect to pay about $10.00 for the bottle.

Alterntively, you could remove the lower basket, sop as much water out as you can and then run the machine on a rinse cycle to see what happens.

While at the pool place, you might find a hot tub you like. Hey, you already have some of the chemical!

Thanks for your question at FixYa.com

The dishes come out with a white film on them. they are not clean clear dishes, the bowls and glasses have a film. I was using cascade dry soap switched to liquid soap still have the problem. what can I do...


add Jet Dry or some other sheeting agent to the wash. also most pros frown on liquid soap (gel) so try the hard tablets, most have the jet dry built in. This also ensures the correct amount of soap. if this is a new development check the screens on the bottom of the washer under the spray arm and see if they are clogged with food or gunk. sounds like you are not getting a good rinse.

Dishes not rinsing well,


I would check the bottom drain area. Sometimes food can stay down there and block the drain or get back around onto the next load.

The dishwasher was full of soap suds but most of the water drain


Suds? If you use dishwashing detergent you shouldn't get suds. If a small amount of sink type dish soap is left on a dish before loading it into the dishwasher this can happen. I would use several rinse and drain cycles with the racks and dishes removed until the suds are gone.

Never use any type of liquid dish soap made for sinks. The same thing that makes suds in the sink will make even more in the dish washer.

Hope this helps!
