Question about Fisher Dishwashers

1 Answer

Hi I have a F@P dishwasher model DW691EDW serial No 330517003089 which I purchased in 2005 it has started to give the following problem it gets part way through a cycle and stops then F8 comes up on the screen, if I reset the machine it goes to the end of the programe and stops. I only have a user guide which does not have a problem solving section, is this a PC board problem if so how much to renew? I live in Cambridge who is my nearest sevice agent? Thanks, Alan.

It is important to find out which wash cycle you are using and whether or not the water is warm when the F8 error comes up.

Normally it is meant to be a fault in the controller. Sometimes linked to a short in one of the connectors that drive the various components of the dishwasher. If you know where the controller is then you can one by take out the connectors and put them back in carefully. It is the built up of residue over time that can short the connections in the connectors.

Make sure the mains power is turned off at this time.

Service agent for F&P in UK can be found at this site.

You will have to contact them and find out.

HOpe this helps you understand the problem with your dishwasher. Please rate this solution if helpful otherwise post a comment.

My Fisher and Paykel dishwasher serial # starts with 88445 ERM - What year was it manufactured? 1995? 2005?


ERM was manufactured June 2005 according to this serial number. The product code (on the model/serial tag) would further refine the dishdrawer details.

How to receive the best dishwasher repair help on FixYa


There are a couple of things that you should include in your dishwasher repair question when you ask it on FixYa.com

1. Model Number

The model number can be located on the model/serial number tag that is located on the dishwasher.

Make sure you get the full model number from this tag and not the model number from the owners manual.

The model number from the owners manual only includes the first few digits of the full model number because they include that owners manual with many similar models of dishwashers.

With the full model number I'm able to look up factory service manuals, tech sheets, wiring diagrams, factory service pointers and so much more.


2. Detailed description of the problem

At the very least give a brief description of the problem you are having with your dishwasher.

Descriptions like 'My dishwasher don't work' is not very helpful.

Describe what is not working. For example is the dishwasher not filling with water? Maybe the dishwasher is full of water but it will not pump the water out?

The more details you can give the better. Instead of saying 'The dishwasher will not pump the water out' you could go into more detail and say something like...

"My dishwasher starts ok and seems to run fine, but at the end of the cycle when I went to take the dishes out there was still about a inch of water left in the bottom. I also noticed the the dishes did not get very clean, especially the glasses in the top dish rack."

Following these couple tips can help you get a faster and more accurate reply to your dishwasher repair question.

Hi I purchased a Citroen Berlingo 2005 second hand.Radio needs cod, I don't have. Radio is a eurovox 3385 model no.MOD3385CIT1 serial no. 46000825.4. can anyone help.


When you disconnect your battery and then reconnect it again, it disables the radio. This is an anti-theft protection for your car radio.
The enable your radio the activation code is in your vehicle owner's manual. If you do not have this code you need to go to your Citroen service centre and get them to enter this code for you.

Last nigh my Maytag dishwasher model # MDB7100Aww serial # 15666931YM caught fire. Luckily I heard it and was able to put the fire out before my house caught fire. Has there been a recall on this model...


Hi,

Yes, there was a product recall for your Dishwasher due to fire hazard. Please visit the following pages for further information:

https://repair.maytag.com/repair/dishwasher.jsp?siteCd=MT_EN_US

https://repair.maytag.com/repair/dish_faq.jsp?siteCd=MT_EN_US


The list includes model numbers beginning MDB7 with serial numbers ending in YM, so yours is one of the units affected.

With regard to repair / replacement / compensation, Maytag state the following:

Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using these dishwashers, disconnect the electric supply by shutting off the fuse or circuit breaker controlling it and inform all users of the dishwasher about the risk of fire. Contact Maytag for either a free in-home repair, or a $75 cash back reimbursement following the purchase of a new Maytag®, Jenn-Air®, Whirlpool® or KitchenAid® dishwasher. Consumers should not return the dishwasher to the retailer where it was purchased, as retailers are not prepared to take units back.
Consumer Contact: For more information, contact Maytag Corporation at (800) 675-0535 anytime, or visit the firm's Web site at www.repair.maytag.com.

Hope this helps - I would advise phoning them on the number above to find out what your exact position is as this recall was issued in 2007. However, there should not be any time limitations on claims and this still appears to be an active recall. They have admitted the dishwashers are dangerous and thereby accepted liability.

Regards,
BElectric

MODEL duiioixtpq3 ser. # fs0201257 will not run, no lights on anywhere. how old is this dishwasher?


The model number is actually "DU1101XTPQ3". If the model number you listed this question under is correct, there is a thermal fuse located inside the control panel of the dishwasher. The part number for the thermal fuse replacement is 8193762.

If you type in your model number you can utilize the exploded view parts diagrams at pcappliancerepair.com, appliancepartspros.com or searspartdirect.com to assist you in locating the part. The fuse is listed as item 6 under the "Control Panel Parts" section.


To replace the fuse, follow these steps:

1. Make sure the dishwasher is unplugged or the breaker is turned off.

2. Open the door and remove only the top screws directly behind the control panel.

3. Remove the protective cover from back of the control panel to expose the main control board.

The thermal fuse should be mounted to the control board. If you remove it and take a resistance check, it should read close to 0 ohms, if good. If bad, replace as necessary. Make sure you follow the installation instructions on the replacement fuse.

The age of the appliance is determined by the SERIAL NUMBER. The following link explains how this is determined on Whirlpool manufactured appliances:


http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576437-determining_the_age_of_your_whirlpool_ap


The SECOND DIGIT in the serial number determines the YEAR it was manufactured. The first TWO NUMBERS following that digit, represents the WEEK (52 weeks in a year) that it was manufactured. So...if I'm reading your serial number correctly, this dishwasher was manufactured January 2005.


If you have any questions about this repair, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you

My ge profile dishwasher oveheated.


There was a recall on some GE dishwashers, but yours was purchased a bit before those affected. Just to be sure, go to http://www.geappliances.com/products/recall/dw07/ and input your full model and serial number (including the last letter of the serial number). Of the models affected by the recall, I've personally seen (and have photos of) one that burned, plus one that was close to it. Recalled ones can be updated for free, or if you decide to replace, qualify for a rebate toward a new GE dishwasher. (the recalled ones had problems with the wiring inside the door) If your model is not one affected by the recall, I would contact GE customer relations via their answer center phone (800-626-2005) to report this potential safety issue.

Dishwaser Fills But Does Not Run


You may have a problem with the spray arm being blocked or the water valve may not be letting a sufficient amount of water through to get the spray arms activated. If the dishwasher is still in warranty schedule service before it runs out. GE customer service number is 800-626-2000 model and serial numbers and purchase dates are helpful. Ask specifically if any kits are available to fix these problems and if GE is willing to make any concession toward this repair. Good Luck.

Older dishwasher-kenmore ultra wash. Serial no ff3902085, model no :110764511. I have no info on how to run it. Does it take rinse agent? D. Wickes


Hi landwix,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: older dishwasher-kenmore ultra wash. Serial no ff3902085, model no :110764511. You have no info on how to run it. Does it take rinse agent?

Operation is simple and yes it will take rinse agent if you so desire. Rinse agent can be purchased either liquid, dry or combined with the soap in a tablet (I don't recomend). The dry comes in a tiny basket you hang from the upper rack. The liquid goes in the dispencer next to the soap dispencer. Just twist the plug counter clockwize about 1/4 turn and lift out, pour in no more than 4 oz. slowly and replace plug. Forget about it for a month. It will use a few drops with each use. Fill soap dispencer about half full and close. Choose wash cycle (normal, etc.) then press start. Thats it.

Feel free contact me again!

Two Green Lights Flash Mid Cycle.


It's possible that there's a fault in the drying heater coil, but I couldn't tell you for sure without looking up your machine. If you could locate the model number tag on your machine and write down the exact model number and serial number, then I could likely give you a more informative answer. ;)
