How do I remove the back of my fisher-paykel dishwasher? The draining pipes have been kinked resulting in a back flow of water and now leaking. It is no longer under warranty.

I decided not to open the back of the dishwasher and just cut out the kinked pipes and rejoin them. I haven't used the dishwasher yet so I am unsure if this will fix the leaking problem.

Fisher paykel dishwasher


There will be two drain hoses plumbed into the drain pipe coming from your sink.
Have a bucket handy . Find where the power is connected and unplug it first. Then you will have an inlet hose coming from a tap under your sink , turn the water off and disconnect this hose and drain any excess water into your bucket . then remove your two drain hoses and tape the four of them together which will help when you are removing you Dishdraw .
Good luck

Water won't drain in bottom


Hi



Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller.

Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat.


Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

U1 code 920 model filter is clean no hoses bent or kinked ? can it be fixed ? hans


The U1 code means:-
Dishwasher attempted to fill to correct level but failed. = Water tap not turned on. Turn the water tap on.
Too much foam. Rinse aid setting too high or has been spilled. = Turn the rinse aid dial to a
lower setting or wipe the spill. Incorrect detergent. Ensure that you use a detergent that is intended for a domestic automatic dishwasher. Egg yolk. Place an extra tablespoon of detergent in the dishwasher door for pre-rinsing.
Too much detergent. Use the recommended quantity of detergent
Wash pump faulty. Call your Fisher & Paykel Dealer or Authorised Service Centre.
Dishwasher not draining. = Drain hose bent or kinked. Straighten drain hose so water can flow through. Strainer blocked. Empty out the strainer and ensure the filter plate is clear of food
particles..

I have a Fisher & Paykel dish drawer model number DD603 and it is not draining. Any tricks?


Hi

Dishwasher not pumping issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you’ll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump.

Please check the parts manual for your dishwasher, check the drain pump & drain filter's location from the link---

Fisher paykel dishwasher is starting on its own. Will not stop Both drawers . Need help and approximate cost to fix.


Not sure if you are getting any fault codes on the display.

The most common problem is water getting on the base of the dishwasher.

Turn the mains power off. Extend the bottom drawer out as much as possible and dry the base with towels and hair dryer.

Water can leak if the drain hose is cracked or is kinked. Have it checked.

My fisher paykel DD S03SS dishwasher leaks from the top, & drain


The drawers should not leak unless there is a problem with the vacuum seal. Try cleaning the edges of the doors and operate. You should feel the vacuum is holding the doors. The seals could be faulty or vacuum system may be faulty.

About not draining completely - a possibility is the common drain hose after the U adapter being clogged. Remove the clamp and pass a flexible wire coat hanger towards the main drain pipe. If both drawers are not draining then it is unlikely the drain hose between the U clamp and the dishwasher is clogged. Also make sure the height of inlet water pipe and drain outlet is as specified in the installation manual

Fisher & Paykel Dishwasher leaked


From what you describe, drain water from the top drawer is getting into the bottom drawer or waste water from the disposer is backing up into the bottom drawer.

1. Each drawer has its own drain hose. Each hose should terminate at the drain point with a 'Y' adapter.
2. Inspect the drain point (under the sink where the drain pipes are) to make sure this 'Y' adapter is present. (you should see two drain hoses from the DW). If not present, then the DW drain lines are not installed properly. (Someone took a shortcut and installed the 'Y' adapter behind the DW)
3. If terminated properly, make sure the drain hoses extend upward as they leave the drain point.

It is important the drain lines are connected properly to ensure proper drainage from the DW. Consult the installation manual for complete details.
