Wonder if you tried to turn the power off at the mains and back on. If that does not release the drawer then most likely the lid seal has locked up.

I am assuming the bottom drawer is operational.
Turn the power to dishwasher off and take the bottom drawer out from its housing carefully without tugging the hoses etc at the back. This will expose the power module at the base. This supplies the power to the lid seal actuator motors on both drawers. Disconnect the leads going to top drawer and turn power back on. This should free up the lid seal - might need a little pull to get drawer to open. Connect everything back in (disconnect power first) and see if it works.

If this is unlclear then drop a comment otherwise rate the solution to help fixya help you better in future.

My double drawer kitchenaid dishwasher sold red light and beeping during cycle wont turn off and runs even with door open, turned breaker off


If you using upper or lower drawer and this shows up it means the dishwasher has water under the filter board which located on the bottom under the lower drawer. You have to disconnected power,removed the lower drawer, clean the water, replaced filter board, check the dishwasher for leaking.

Top dishdrawer won't open no power


The most logical explanation is the controller in top drawer has packed up or the power board located at the base of dishwasher housing (under bottom drawer) has partially packed up and stopped supplying power to the top drawer controller. But another explanation is that the thermal relay in the top drawer (located inside the heater element assembly has cut off. This stops power to the controller. This is the most expensive to fix as the entire heater element assembly has to be replaced as the thermal relay is not separately accessible. How you want to isolate the problem and fix it depends on how comfortable you are with fixing electrical and electronic systems. This is a very sofisticated dishwasher and a small mistake is irreversible. By the way you can open the drawer by forcing it open but keep in mind not to try to shut it firmly again until you restore the controller power. Otherwise the lid seal or actuator motors will be damaged. Whatever you do, make sure the mains power is turned off if you work on the dishwasher circuits.

Top drawer can not be open


If this is a double drawer dishwasher and bottom drawing is functional but top drawer won't open means the controller on top drawer is faulty or power circuit is locked. If turning the mains power off and back on makes no difference then controller could be the problem. One way to test is to take the controller from bottom drawer and replace that in the top drawer. This requires a lot of patience and experience with electronic stuff. If you are not brave enough to test then call the technician. The controller is about $200 to buy. Make sure the mains power socket is taken out before working on the dishwasher internals.

Dishwasher beeps but won't run


There could be several reasons for the beeping. The dishwasher checks for sensor to make sure it is in good health before it starts. Most likely the drawer close sensor is detecting fault. This is to ensure the drawer is closed fully to avoid water leaks when dishwasher is on. Sometimes sensor itself has failed and has nothing to do with position of drawer. Open top cover carefully to make sure the drawer is travelling ok on the rails. TAKE MAINS POWER CABLE OUT BEFORE WORKING ON DISHWASHER.

Top drawer won't close


After completing a cycle the top drawer feels like it will not open or the top of the drawer has fallen down. I've since forced it open but, now it feels like it will not close. I did not force it to close. How do I remedy this problem?

Dishdrawer cannot open


the power board at the base of the dishwasher under bottom drawer appears to have blown up. Take the bottom drawer out carefully to access the power board. Make sure the mains power is turned off.

The reason the bottom drawer is not getting back in is that lid seal actuators are stuck as the motors are in close position. Will reset to normal position once the power is restored. So don't try to push the drawer in as the lid seal will be damaged.

Why won't my top drawer start


I am assuming you have a double drawer unit DD603. A drawer will not respond when you press Start button for several reasons. Assuming the panel lights are on, there could be a problem with the lid seal motor or the sensor that detects drawer is closed or blocked outlet hose or dirty panel. Take a damp clean cloth and wipe the inside of the drawer door panel. The dishwasher is very smart and checks for the condition of the dishwasher before starting. If turning off the mains power and turning it back on does not change the situation you will need a technician to attend to it.

The top dish drawer turns on but won't go. It comes up with a little clock and counts up to about 11 or 12 then goes off. It continunally beeps and won't actually start up.


Hi,
Somehow your drawer was put into a showroom mode. In this model, with the power off, push ECO and Power button for 5 seconds. (ECO first then Power and hold for 5 seconds) this should clear this out.
If you still have issues seen me another message and I will respond as quick as possible. Taking my daughter out to a party tonight.

My top drawer of the fp dd 603 is stuck! what do i do?


Ours just did that. Turn the power off at powerpoint, leave off for a minute, turn back on, turn machine off on the drawer. Turn the powerpoint off for another minute, turn back on, then turn on at drawer. The drawer should now open. Its a problem with the top seal of the unit, the unit needs to be fully reset for it to be fixed.

Fisher Paykel Dishwasher Door Open error code


If it is a dish drawer type there is a clip at the rear of the drawer that holds the drawer closed. you will need to withdraw the drawer partially to look in. with the drawer open the fingers should be facing towards you. If not you will need to reach in and pull the top of the fingers towards the front. there is a replacement arm that holds the pipes and cables away from this part.
