Question about Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603SS Built-in Dishwasher
First, open the door and look into
the tub and locate the heating element (if it is covered, remove
the lower dish rack and cover). The heating element has two terminals
which extend through the bottom of the tub, note the general location
where they go through.
To access the heating element's wiring remove the front panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to reach the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel.
Look into the lower access area and locate where the terminals come through the tub. Each terminal has a wire connected to it. Label the wires and the terminals so that they can be properly reconnected. Pull the wire off of each terminal; they are connected with a slip on connector. Firmly pull the connector and make sure you do not pull on the wire. You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers. Inspect the connector and terminal for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced.
Each terminal is secured with a lock nut, use a crescent wrench or pliers to loosen the nut. Remove the two lock nuts. From inside the tub, lift the element out. Position the new element over the holes and set it in place. Replace the lock nuts and reattach the wires. Replace the access panel, the element cover, if any, and restore the electricity.

If clean light is blinking then it may
be an issue with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump. If yes then please
reset the power to the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still
getting the same error. If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve
this error try pressing this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry -
Normal or High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy
saver dry, Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry. Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes
and then you press the Cancel/Drain button and allow it to completely drain and
reset. If this doesn't work then it's an issue with the wash pump not pumping
the water past the heater efficiently or due to lack of water to heat. Please
make sure that heater is not open circuited and is heating the water
efficiently. You'll have to check the heater using a multimeter; the meter
should read between 3000 to 3300 ohms (Use multimeter on Rx1 ohm setting). If
heater is fine then make sure water pressure is optimum and fill valve is
working fine. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more
