Question about Dishwashers

3yr old fisher paykel dishwasher not hot.

Hi, my 3yr old f&p dishwasher is only getting hot some of the time. It averages about 1 in 3 washes where it actually gets hot and cleans properly. We have tried all of the obvious things like clearing the drain and cleaning out the squirter bars. It seems to respond well to adding a little bit of disinfectant in with the tablet but it may just be coincidence. The machine is plumbed in to the cold water supply. The water supply is hard water supplemented with rain water in the winter months. Any ideas for a fix? I thought it may be a poor connection on the heater element?

How to reset the flood switch on a fisher & paykel


Hi - unfortunately my good friend it cannot be reset as one would like quite easily anyhow... water has found its way to the base of the drwaers and have activated the flooding switch - one could pull it apart to dry it - tip the water out from the base but if the leaks not repaired you will have the same problem later and will be on-going.

Both drawers not cleaning well. Glassware comes out cloudy. Have cleaned all filters, taken out rotors etc. Some detergent remains in dispenser after wash cycle complete. Now 5 years old and was working...


Try running a hot wash without anything in and just use some dishwasher cleaner (normal cleaner).
Also make sure your water softness is set correctly and that your salt dispenser is full.

OK, when you say it sounds like a record skipping does that mean its washing then not washing? what cycle are you using ? sorry to ask these questions but sounds like an unusual fault.is the water hot? could be control module or pressure switch fault. please reply and we can hopefully track down this fault.
