Bottom drawer drains into top drawer

I love my fisher paykel double dish drawer, but I have had a lot of problems with it. For the many times it has had to be repaired I could have bought a new one. This is my second set. Anyway my latest problem is the bottom drawer empties into the top. The way I solve this is to run the bottom about a minute before the top so when finished they are both dry. If I run the bottom first and the top is already finished Then I run the top on rinse to empty the water out. Any ideas on fixing this myself, I'm going broke paying repair people

    My fisher paykel dish drawers drain into each other as well as into the waste line. The drain line from each drawer connects to the joiner and the joiner connects to the dishwasher side of a counter top mounted airgap. The airgap connects to the waste hose that empties into the garbage disposal.

    These two drawers have always had some back flow from the joiner point onto the unused drawer and I have never gotten a useful solution to correcting the problem. I, instead, have managed the problem by running extra rinse cycles, emptying clean dishes from one drawer before running other drawer, and etc. Lately, the amount of water depositing in the non-running drawer has become excessive. I now want the problem fixed.

    I think these two drawers each need there own airgap instead of sharing one with the joiner. ? Is there such a thing as an airgap that will allow two dishwashers to be connected?

I can offer a PERMANENT fix for this! That machine has never been installed properly since day 1 I would bet, and a series of techs have come thru unable to fix it right, or they keep selling you those "flappers" that fix the issue for a short period of time.
The way to fix cross-draining fisher paykel dishdrawers is to install a dual-air gap. You can get them from fisherpaykelparts.net here: http://www.fisherpaykelparts.net/index.php?categoryid=113&productid=7

Install one of those and the machine will work better than it ever has!!

Fisher paykel cross draining


As the drawers share a common outlet to the kitchen sink drain, it is the drain water from bottom drawer going to top drawer. Can happen if the drain hoses are not following the correct specifications for installation. An air gap kit is available to solve the problems.

My Fisher & Paykel double dishwasher won't drain completely


It may be a blocked hose. First point to check is under the sink where the thin corrugated drain hose joins the sink drain. If it is a double dish drawer there will be two hoses, one black and one white. The black hose is usually from the top drawer. They are held on by spring clamps.
If this is not the problem, post again.

I have a small piece of plastic stuck in the drain hose of my fisher paykel top dish washer drawer. I have tried cable wire but it does not budge after about 3 inches. Is there a way to remove the bottom...


There are two pieces of drain house in a double drawer FP dishwasher. The one from top drawer, the one from bottom drawer which then merge into a U adapter before hoing as a single hose into the kitchen sink.
I don't think anything can be achieved by taking the bottom drawer out. If the obstruction is in the top drawer drain hose, you will have to take that out and turn it over and disengage the hose from the bottom of the sump. Your best bet is to refer to this install guide on removing the drawers. Refer page 7 step 2.

Use reverse method to put it back in. Make sure you keep a stool nearby to hold the drawer in place and not let it fall on the floor. The cables and hoses are very tight and need care when handling.

F1 error on Fisher and Paykel Dish Drawer


Sorry did not see your problem report earlier. If you have checked the sensor under the bottom drawer and it is dry, then F1 is caused by top drawer power filter fault. This means the bottom drawer controller is giving the F1 error but the top drawer controller has no power. Can you confirm this.

I HAVE A TWIN DRAWER MACHINE ABOUT 5 YEARS OLD THE TOP DRAWER IS WASHING DISHES BUT LEAVING WATER IN THE BOTTOM OF THE DRAWER WHICH I AM NOW HAVING TO EMPTY MANUALLY HOW CAN I FIX THIS PROBLEM


Have you tried running the rinse cycle to check if the water drains out?

If you are not getting any fault codes, then it might be simply a matter of cleaning the base filter plate and the sump. The user manual will tell you how to do this.

If that does not help then post a comment along with the model number of your fisher and paykel double drawer unit and I will suggest further diagnostics.

Fisher & paykel double dish drawer top draw just beeps...


The controllers get very brittle & can break away from their housing, the reason it's rapidly beaping is because it thinks the door is open. PLEASE TURN IT OFF FIRST AT THE POWER POINT. Take the front draw panel off by pulling the plugs situated on the front behind the draws, the controller is at the top right hand side if it is loose then thats the problem, double sided tape will work but lots of it or try a wedge type arrangement. I know this is an old post but people refer to these for solutions much later.

Fisher and paykel twin draw


I'm not really sure. With the double drawer configuration, I know the top drawer is larger than the bottom drawer. If I had to take a guess, I would say the single drawer might fit in the top of the double drawer.
