SOURCE: water in top drawer

I am not a repairman but have installed several duel drawer dishwashers. Most dishwashers have a check valve preventing backflow. Water under pressure will always follow the path of least resistance and in your case it is going into the upper drawer. Be sure the drain is open and flowing easily under your sink whether that be the disposal or a TEE. It may help if the drain line is elevated as high as it can go under the sink just before it reaches the drain. How often do you use the top drawer? Perhaps run a cycle on the hottest cycle without dishes to attemt to clean or force through any contaminants in the check valve through into the drain. Hope this helps, Ken

SOURCE: tablet is not dissolving from my dishwasher drawer

If it drops to the bottom when you open the dishwasher door - your soap dispenser is blocked by the rack or an utencil protruding from the rack. Make sure both racks slide in all the way to the back. (hint: check the middle spray arm inlet, make sure it aligns with the tube on back.
Good luck)

1. Locate the "Energy Saver/Dry" button on the dishwasher. The location of this button will be different depending upon the specific model number of the dishwasher, but should be easy to spot. If you have trouble finding it, you can check the diagram in the manual of your dishwasher for the exact location for your specific model.

2. Press and hold down this "Energy Saver/Dry" button for at least four seconds. Make sure that you do not release the button until at least 4 seconds have passed, otherwise the lock will not become disabled.

3. Check to make sure that the child lock indicator light has turned off. If this light is no longer on, this means you were successful at turning off the child lock. If the light is still on, repeat the process, but try to press and hold the "Energy Saver/Dry" button for a few seconds longer. If it still doesn't work, there may be a more complicated issue with your dishwasher. Consult your manual, or call to the manufacturer or repair man to determine if there is another problem with your dishwasher.

SOURCE: F1 with a spanner message

F1 indicates a leak. It could be that you got some water down below the drawer into the pan. This is where the sensor is located. If you pull the drawer out you will see the water. They are pretty sensitive to any water. Also you might have a leak because the bottom drawer lid is not sealing properly.
www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html has a video on replacing the seal if it is a problem.

SOURCE: Loose sealing tray in to drawer keeps drawer from sliding

You might be correct in your assessment. The top drawer door seal has come undone. It is a very labour intensive process to put it back. Could also mean the actuators that operate the seal are undone.

To get to the actuators and seal you will have to get the drawer out from its housing and then give it a shot. If you are confident of getting to the next step then post a comment. Otherwise a qualified technician is your best bet.

My dishwasher drawer is not draining the water well after the dishes are washed and then is smells. How can unclog the drain so that it will drain? the filter is clean.


The pump may be worn so it doesn't pull all the water out.
Or a bad check valve so it allows water back into the washer after it was sucked out

My Fisher & Paykel double dishwasher won't drain completely


It may be a blocked hose. First point to check is under the sink where the thin corrugated drain hose joins the sink drain. If it is a double dish drawer there will be two hoses, one black and one white. The black hose is usually from the top drawer. They are held on by spring clamps.
If this is not the problem, post again.

Upper drawer dishwasher won't drain


First =check for a plugged drain line
Second = check for plugged screens in the unit.

It could also be your pump. The vanes are only plastic and they sometimes just give out.

Have a kitchenaid double drawer dishwasher. While running the bottom drawer the top drawer fills up with water. Had the filler valve on the garbage disposal changed. Issue still continues. Any suggestions


Mine does the same thing! (Same model) I've finally discovered that if I start the bottom drawer first and the top drawer just after that doesn't happen as much. Also, if I run the garbage disposal (and water obviously) while it's starting (I will try to do my hand washing while the dishwasher is getting going) that seems to keep this from happening as well. I've given up running just one drawer, which totally defeats the purpose of buying the 2 drawer dishwasher. But it does keep me from having to bail the bottom drawer :-( I'd like a better solution to this too!

F1 code on my Fischer Paykal drawer dish washer . This is the flood sensor . It was. tripped when water was splashed in a plug that shares the same Circuit. How do I reset the sensor?


Not sure if the flood sensor will trip if the water is splashed into the mains plug. F1 can also occur if the power to the top drawer has failed. Flood sensor trips when water collects at the base of the dishwasher housing under the bottom drawer.
I think the problem you mention has caused the power to the top drawer to fail due to a spike when the splash on the power plug occured. This is very easy to see. Check if the display on top drawer is blank.

DD-603 cycle and draining problems.


check your kitchen drain as it might be blocked or if you have a garbage disposal (kitchen insinkerator) make sure it is cleared before running the dishwasher.

I have a Kitchen Aid 2 drawer dishwasher and its about 2 years old. My problem is the top drawer will not drain during wash cycle. The bottom drawer drains fine. model number KUDD03DTSS 10


Hi,
You may have clogged pump to the drawer. open drawer, lay on your back under the dish drawer, removed the black cover (3 screws) remove 2 screws to the pump and allow the water to drain out into a bucket or bowl. make sure the pump can turn easy. Reassemble and test unit again. If fails, replace pump.
Pump
I hope this helps, good luck

This is the 2nd time I've had problems with my dish drawer. After I cleaned the filter and replaced it, I had standing water on the bottom of the drawer. The last time this happened, I had someone come...


Unfortunately I have to respond to you through this post per policy of fixya.com. This s to ensure we have a visibility on the quality of the solution and also allow other consultants to help if necessary.

Water standing at the bottom is not a problem as long as it it is below the filter plate. The important thing is whether the dishwasher is completing the cycle and the dishes are clean.

I do not have enough information about what is happening with the other drawer considering you have indicated this is a DD603 which is a double drawer model.

Before I recommend anything else, get Finish dishwasher cleaner kit from the super market and run the dishwasher empty per the instructions. Choose the Normal wash cycle so that water temperature is about 65degC.(you will have to check in Fareinheit if that is what you use).

If water is still remaining behind after that than post a comment and I will try to find further solutions that might help.

A couple of things to confirm first
1. is the second drawer working oK - i am assuming you have a double drawer model?

2. Are you not seeing the wash cycle time on the display? why does the technician want to replace the display (LCD)?

3. Apart from replacing the rotor did the technician try to clean the dishwasher base and pump filter sump?

Please post your comments to help diagnose the cause of dirty water remaining in the dishwasher.
