Dishdrawer Door Switch DD601 v2

My bottom drawer in my F&P dishdrawer won't start and beeps twice, just like it would if I tried to start it when it was open. How do I access, find and replace the drawer-open sensor? I live in a regional Australian area and can't get a local repairman.

many thanks anyone who can help
Chris

I had teh exact same problem, pull the face of the door off (by the plastic screw pins either side of the drawer) remove the face and open the plastic box which contains the circuit boards, on the lower right you will find the actuator, and i bet you will find the crappy quality plastic has broken, you will have to either source out one of these or do as i did and made one out of copper which works perfectly

    Thanks a lot to the previous poster! The problem with the design is that the plastic box which houses the circuit board and interfaces with the touch switches at the top and the door close sensor on the right is only held in place by a thin plastic clip. When the clip breaks, after so many draw openings and vibration, the box becomes loose and the switches and close sensor stop working. What i did was to simply fix it firmly in place with a couple of cable ties. Fixed.

    This fix worked for me, the plastic clip that holds the box had broken on mine so I wedged a small piece of wood to hold it in place, all fixed for now.

there is water in the base setting off the flood sensor, you will need to remove the bottom draw and dry the water up with a towel (make sure the power is off and unplug it from the power point) then you will need to do a bit of testing to locate the cause of the leak, if your lucky the leak was caused by incorrect dish stacking or something too big in the draw

How do I reset the f1 flood button . Dd603ss


Not sure if you have managed to fix the F1 problem with your dishdrawer. This is a common problem and occurs mainly due to water leaking into the base of the dishdrawer under the bottom drawer.
But if it is occuring only in one drawer then the power filter at the base of dishdrawer is faulty and needs replacement.

Otherwise make sure the mains power to dishdrawer is turned off. Pull out the bottom drawer and stack in some towels behind it if you can to remove the moisture sitting on the base. The flood switch is located there. Then take a hair dryer and run it down behind the drawer to dry things. Push drawer back and turn power back on. Now if you cannot reach the back of the drawer then you will have to pull the drawer out from its rail. Refer the installation manual for this. See link page 7.

Dishdrawer cannot open


the power board at the base of the dishwasher under bottom drawer appears to have blown up. Take the bottom drawer out carefully to access the power board. Make sure the mains power is turned off.

The reason the bottom drawer is not getting back in is that lid seal actuators are stuck as the motors are in close position. Will reset to normal position once the power is restored. So don't try to push the drawer in as the lid seal will be damaged.

Dishdrawers display F1 fault, what do I do?


The flood switch at the base of the dishwasher (under the bottom drawer) has triggered. This means water has collected at the base of the dishwasher housing. This can happen for many reasons, leaking drawer lid seal, broken drain hose, broken water inlet hose, etc.

You will need to find the source of the leak. Also incorrect detergent can cause foaming which triggers the flood switch.
Turn the mains power to dishwasher off and take the cable out of the socket. You will have to find a way to take the bottom drawer out. Usually it needs a plyer to pull out the plastic fasteners one on each side. Slowly take the front cover out and lift the drawer off the rail and bring it out.Make sure the controller or display panel do not fall out. Use masking tape to hold these in place. Leave it on the floor without tugging too much on the cable and hoses. Dry the base with towels and hair dryer. The flood switch is mounted on a circuit board located in the base.

Put everything back and conne power and try again.
Hoses need to be replaced if these are source. Also lid seal can be replaced if this is the cause.
Use recommended detergent. (no power balls) or tablets.
good luck.

F1 fault shows flood switch activated, how to


Hello there
This is how i did mine
saved about 300 dollars
First thing I did was pull the front panel off the drawer, batch%2010-23-04%200031.jpg
Fisher Paykel DD602 dishdrawer with the front panel removed.
With that front panel off, I pulled the wire harness connectors off the main control board (lower right-hand side) to inspect for gookus. None found--my quest continued.
The next step to remove the botton drawer from the unit so I could inspect the flood switch. In order to do this, I had to remove the wire harness cover on the underside of the drawer. This is what the underside of the dishdrawer looks like with the botton cover panel removed:
batch%2010-23-04%200041.jpg
Fisher Paykel DD602 dishdrawer, looking at the underside of one of the drawers with the wire cover plate removed.
With the bottom cover off, I could unclip the wire harness, fill hose, and drain hose. Then I unclipped the linkage at the back of the drawer and lifted the drawer off the slider arms. All this to expose the flood switch, shown on the left-hand side of the bottom panel in the picture below:.
batch%2010-23-04%200051.jpg
Fisher Paykel DD602 dishdrawer with the lower drawer removed. The flood switch in mounted on the base, left hand side.
After noting the positions of the wires on the flood switch and removing them, I unclipped the switch housing from the base panel. The switch housing contains one switch for each drawer. The switches are wired normally closed (NC) and each switch has three spade connections, so it's important to note where the wires went. With the switch housing out, I could ohm out both switches and both checked good. I inspected the contacts and noticed that one of them was oxidized, evidenced by discoloration.
and clean off the contacts. That'll restore the current flow for that circuit. ." So I cleaned the contacts and reassembled the dishdrawer. I ran the top drawer and...no F1 error code! I ran it several more times just to be sure.

Our F & P dishdrawer keeps coming up with f1 and a picture of a spanner have tried turning the machine of at the switch for 24hr but is still doing it


Water has collected at the base of the dishwasher under the drawer.
This triggers a flood switch and causes the F1 error.

Turn the mains power off and extend the drawer out as much as possible. Take towels to dry the base from inside. Also use hair dryer ot dry out the flood switch mounted at the base.

Turn the power on and see if there is any difference. The cause of water collection could be many. Foam in detergent or kink in drain hose or drawer door gasket leaking etc.

Fisher and Paykel dishdrawer, lid not retracting, no power.


By no power you may be implying there is no display etc and the swithces are not working. Most likely the controller of the top drawer has had it. The controller is mounted on the front of the drawer behind the door panel. Hope things are better than that.
