The F2 fault implies there is a problem with the motor rotor which is located under the drain plate at the bottom right in the centre of the drawer. The rotor is actually driving the wash arms.

F2 does not necessarily mean you have to replace the rotor. It is also possible there is some debris inside the rotor cavity which is preventing the rotor from rotating at the normal speed.

Remove the racks and the wash arm. Twist the centre ring so that it disengages the drain plate. You can then pull the rotor out with a few back and forth twisting motions. Check if the cavity is clean. Re-insert everthing and start the wash cycle. If F2 comes in again, you will have to eliminate the cause by using the rotor from the bottom drawer and see if it makes any difference. You may then have to buy a replacement part.

good luck

Top drawer on F&P dish drawer stuck on cycle & continuously beeping


You could isolate the top drawer by taking the controller power cable out. DIsconnect mains power to dishwasher, open top drawer and remove front cover carefull after removing 2 plastic pins on each side with plier. Controller box is on left top side, remove bottom connector and cover with insulation tape. Put things back and turn power back on.

But if you want to find the fault with top drawer then that is very trick if there is no fault code on panel except beeping First clean the top panel inside door with a clean damp cloth. If this does not change the situation, then it is very likely the controller is detecting some faulty sensor - and will need to find one by one. Are you ready for it?

Hi I have a DD603 F & P dish drawer. I had an F2 fault, found the rotor motor seized. I've replaced that but F2 still comes up & the water doesn't drain away. Any ideas?


Before we talk about water not draining away, can you confirm if the wash arms rotate during the wash cycle. The rotor works as a wash pump and drain pump depending on which cycle it is in.

If F2 keeps coming then it is also likely there is some debris in the rotor cavity which is grinding on the rotor. But one needs to be sure if F2 is coming up only in drain cycle or is it already on during wash cycle.

We have the error F2 showing on our dish drawers


normally the F2 showing on both drawers is unusual.

It is a rotor fault. Which means either the rotor that drives the wash arm and also works as a pump is either faulty or there is some rubbish stuck in the rotor cavity.

Lift the fiter plate out and open the rotor ring. Get the rotor out and inspect. If it looks ok or there was no noise when the F2 error showed up then the hall sensor mounted on the underside of the drawer is faulty.

The hall sensor can be hard to replace unless one has good experience in repairing dishwasher.

There is an error code f2. How can I fix this?


The F2 code= siezed pump. To check remove all the dishes followed by the grey dish wrack wedged in the bottom. Lift off the plastic spray arm to reveal a grey plastic ring around the outside of the stainless mesh, and you will also see the blue plastic impeller. Turn this anti clockwise and lift out the whole stainless mesh cover. Then there is a brownish ring with the blue pump impeller on top. Turn this anticlockwise and the pump should lift straight up and out. The impeller may have come off and lifted off with it the brown ring leaving the rest of the pump stuck in the hole. So be careful here, get it out without damaging the housing it fits into. Replace the motor/impeller unit and off you go. Yours could just be stuck of course. A clean may do the same trick.

My dishwasher is showing signs of a spanner


I am slightly unsure if your double drawer dishwasher is the prefinished model (self standing with LCD display) or the integrated model with no LCD display.

The spanner symbol on the top drawer is telling you that a fault code is actuated. But I am not sure where this symbol is on your unit if it is built -in (integrated model).

You will have to check which red light (from the left) is coming on.
I assume there are 5 lights on the inside of drawer.

With the bottom drawer - again you will have to check which light from the left comes on sometimes as you mentioned.

If you have a user manual you should be able to tell what Fault code it is - something like F1 or F2 etc. Is it continuously beeping when the red light is on? How do you turn the beeps off?

The scrubbing bush symbol on bottom drawer may not be a problem. It appears the drawer is programmed to a particular option. But I am not sure where this symbol is showing if you do not have an LCD display panel. You can reset the option - possibly auto lock or auto power or dish cleaned (depending on your model) if you follow the user manual.

happy to take you through a possible cause of the problem if you post answers to my questions above.

F3 error showing


F3 means the Dishwasher thinks it's water temperature in the tub is over 80oC. So when the unit stops see how hot the water is. The unit has a temp sensor which is part of the element which maybe faulty, the element maybe faulty or the Motor controller module is faulty. I'd try the Motor Controller module first as replacing the element can be a tricky job if you haven't done one before. If you have a double dishdrawer you can swap over the Motor Controller modules (main computers in the front of each drawer) as the top and bottom are the same part, inturn you will prove 100% if this is the fault or not without buying a new controller.

Dishdrawer model DD603 gives fault F2 (Motor). Unit has only been used a few times. What to do? Out of warranty.


Ok this is what you do you need to swap over the motor rotors from top drawer to bottom drawer. check for anything jammming the rotor etc when you take it out. if it works with the other drawers rotor then you need a new motor rotor. cheers

PLEASE GIVE ME FEEDBACK

Need users manual, (f2) fault


Hi and welcome to FixYA!
F2 means the motor is not being sensed to be rotating. Lift off the wash arm and see if you can spin the blue impeller by hand. If it won't turn, it may be frozen of ajmed by an object like broken glass. Sometimes also if you let the drawer sit unused for a long time (some people only use the top drawer) the rotor will freeze up. The part number is a 525884P if you need a new one, it requires no tools to change it. As for the user guide, you can get one free here:

Fisher & Paykel dishwasher drawer won't run, beeps F2 error code


Craig, we had virtually the same situation.  The repair man  came and it took 2 minutes to fix.  The problem was that the bottom drawer had not been used for a couple of years and thus the impellor had jammed.  to fix it take out the basket, lift off the rotor arm and unscrew the knob.  Then just work the impellor around with your fingers until it frees.  It then worked perfectly.  We will use the bottom often from now on to prevent this happening again. By now the left over pumpkin pie will be a bit green!!
