    Hi folks I have just worked out what was going on with the Fix it web pages! Any way I have the manual so if you still need it email me back. I have managed to fix one of the drawers by replacing, controller AUD$129, flood sensor board, AUD$37, hall senor AUD$26 and am now ordering parts for the second unit. Both the controllers have a heater always on failure, this cooks the thermal fuse on the heater that is easily fixed with a piece of solder, then you may get a meltdown of the water sensor PCB after the heater fuse blows, happened on both of mine. It also melts the plastic around the heater so you may need to bed the silicon O rings in with some gutter silicon, mine leaked and fried the hall sensor and that gives a F2, motor not rotating...

Same thing just happened to me. There was a slight leak from the top drawer and it wet the tray on the bottom which caused a short and the circut board and the plug to the top drawer melted. I need to replace the board and wiring harness and am looking for a manual to find out how to remove the faceplate on the top drawer. What you should do first is remove the bottom drawer and check dry the bottom tray if it is wet. There are two circles on the side of the drawer on either side. Turn these with pliers and release the plastic clips on the ends of the drawer slides. you will then be able to pull out the drawer and inspect. Good luck

Top drawer does not work and bottom drawer flashes on and off

I would need more information to assist you. Drawers run and act independent of each other, the only share to things, drain hose as they connect to each other under the sink, and the power board in which also detects water in base pan. If you have a digital display, what is currently displayed? You lower drawer flashes? What is it flashing F1? F1 is a flood in base pan, F2 is a bad motor. I would need some more detailed information to assist you. Also does you model have panel like wood? This would mean you don't have a digital display.
Please get back to me so I can help you

DD603 gives me an F3 and stops before wash ends, then beeps.

Hi- The F3 fault is related to the water temperature. Probable cause is the controller not sensing the correct water temp. It is also possible the the heater plate is faulty. Hope this helps.

Fisher and paykel doulble drawer dishwasher gives me an f1 repair symble and will not turn off. Fliped breaker hoping for a re-set. Not a freaking chanse. What can I do?

hi john. F1 means your machine has activated the flood switch. you either have a leak or you might have used the wrong detergent causing it to soap up and the suds escaping out thru the overflow. let the machine sit turned off for a day or so to let it dry then try the top drawer first. if that goes alright then try the bottom drawer.if you need more help please reply.also reply if you still have F1 coming up.

Th dish washer that we have is the 2draw dd-603m

A lot depends on how it happened. Is this a new installation or everything was working well until now? F1 error implies the float switch in the drawers is activated as the inlet water soneloid could not turn off. This prevents the units from being flooded.

Are you using the correct pressure setting for the water supply. Check the user manual for details. IF you don't have one, download from the fisher & paykel website.

F2 Fisher Paykel 603 issue

You can download the service manual from at a cost of $20

But if you can go through the user guide which is free from

you should be able to work out how to remove the impeller and rotor once you have taken out the filter plate. It needs a slight twist and pull at the same time. It is likely there is some debris between the drain filter and the rotor cavity. You may need to insert a thin stiff wire through the drain filter sump.

My Fisher & Paykel DD 603 has the fault code

Check at bottom housing both top and bottom drawers for leaks.
Pull the tube out, on the left side below the tub you can access to touch the bottom housing. Dry it out with a tower. Un plug the power cord at least 24 hor so the flood sensor can be dried out before pluggin it back.
However, if you don't fix this leak, the sam F1 problem will happen again.
There is not much clogging up in filter. If you expect something clogged up, you have to take the spraying arm off then take out the bottom stainless steel with a lot of holes out to see the impeller clean or not. Good luck.

E-mail for Fisher Paykel DD603 manual

Josh, you will need to have a Tech out to look at it... F/P will not sell you parts to repair it. The F1 indicates that the flood switch has been tripped. There are many possible causes for this but probably the upper drawer link support has broken and is getting stuck between the lid and the drawer in which case you will need a new lid and link support.
