"888" on the older version of the drawers (pre-2007) meant that the unit has one or both thermistors were out of normal range. The main control board will blink code as well. You can normally see it through the bottom grill. One blink for evaporator thermsitor, two blinks for display thermistor and three for both.

Dishwasher does not dispense cleaning tablet

The soap dispenser drawer is supposed to open during the cycle. Try first to understand if the drawer is opening or not during cycle.

If the drawer is not opening, then check if the opening mechanism is stuck, if it is blocked by dirt and soap, if it is broken, or if something, for examble a basket too close to dispenser drawer is preventing the drawer from opening.

Some dishwasher works only with powder, in that case indications are given on the owners manual.

If the drawer opens and the table, or powder is still staying stuck in the drawer, then that means that the spray does not have enough power to solve the tablet.
In that case check spray arms and impeller pump.Also check water temperature.

If the problem is also happening with powder, then it is probably a drawer not opening on cycle.

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.

Fisher and Paykel Dish Drawer: I flooded it by using wrong soap. It was flashing F1 but I solved this by drying it out after removing the bottom drawer. That problem is solved but now the top drawer is...

Most likely the lid seal is dislodged and is obstructing the bottom drawer. Need to manually operate the lid seal actuator yoke and motor to bring the seal back to normal position. Can be messy.
Will need to get the bottom drawer out from housing and work on lid seal assembly located in the main housing.

Top draw has code U2 displayed and will not operate. it is afisher &paykel model DD601v2 dish washer

I have seen this fault code on 3 occasions. It is caused by someone has been opened or forced open during cycle, You will need to reset the drawer by turning off/unplug unit wait 20 sec, than plug back in. If the code doesn't go away there are to possible issues. First one, drawer micro switch has failed, second one, exhaust valve has failed and would need to be replaced.
I have done both in the last year and I can say its not a simple part change depending on how the unit was installed. If you have never worked on this drawer I would suggest seeking a professional to correct the problem. Here is a number for the factory who can direct you to a trained person 1 (888) 936-7872. This is a 24/7 phone line and will direct you to everything you need to correct the problem.
Any more questions please feel free to ask..

I need a part

Hobart's website has an online catalogue, if you want to deal directly with the source. You'll need to register with them in order to browse the catalogue, and download service & repair manuals. Otherwise, you can try calling their Customer Service number at 888-4HOBART (888-446-2278).

Alternatively, there are a number of suppliers that sell the equipment and parts. Valiant Equipment in Florida is one of them.

If you bought this piece of equipment new, you might try contacting the vendor from whom you purchased it. (They will probably have stuck a decal on the unit with their name & phone number, hoping to get more of your business.)
