Question about Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603SS Built-in Dishwasher
I had the problem with the top draw not draining properly and the dishwasher showing the U3 fault code on my DD601 v.1, I did'nt have a copy of the dishwasher manual so it took the following steps, this is best done out side to save on messing your kitchen up!!!
Firstly make sure you unplug the dish washer form the electricity supply, open the top draw, now you will have to go underneath this draw and remove the bottom cover which has 9 holding tags which are very easy to over come, now you should see the top drain pipe(Black pipe) quickly remove that from the connector and remember to catch the water with a bucket!! now remove the red non return valve from the tube and reconnect the pipe, you will have to now plug the dishwasher back into the electricity supply and connect the waste water pipes to either a hose or your nearest tap, you will now back flush the waste pipe back through the pump you should find waste food being pushed out, don't fill the draw up to much, pick these out and take the waste water pipe away from the tap and into a bucket and allow contents of the dishwasher draw to drain into this and see how much rubbish you get, repeat as necessary I did it about 6 time until I was satisfied then reconnect as normal and away you go.Remember to put the non return valve back in aswell!!!!!!!
Good luck, hopefully this will save you a fortune bills

Have you check the tunnel between the kidney shaped sump and the well that the rotor motor locks into, often chips of crockery,seeds etc get caught in here and reduce the flow rate .You will need to remove the rotor motor,its easy, lift out racks then sprayarm to expose rotor motor turn locking ring to release stainless sieve lift out, then turn motor assembly anti clockwise and lift out.With something flexible eg 4mm insulated wire push it through tunnel from sump to motor well.
