Question about Fisher and Paykel Dishwashers

1 Answer

I have a dishdrawer (2) and following the use of a dishwasher cleaner, the bottom drawer appears to have developed a blockage. It will not empty, gets to the pump out part of the cycle and shows the red error code F3, to which there is no reference in the trouble shooting guide. The top drawer has also developed minute leak, sufficient enough to leave dribble marks on the lower drawer and over time, a white deposit on the floor. Is there anything we can do for the blockage problem before resorting to costly repairer visits?

Remove the small basket from each drawer and lift up the removable plastic cover and take the drain filters out , empty them of food by products and try it again.. If you've never cleaned them then that's your problem with the drain process.. Hope that helps.

Fisher paykel dishdrawer bottom drawer washes fine leaves water in top drawer


At some point the two drawers individual drain hoses are joined using a "Y' type connector. Check this, and everything beyond this point for restrictions or blockage. It sounds like the bottom drawer is pumping its drain water out normally, but some of that water is backing up to the upper drawer. This is an installation or plumbing problem that is external of the dishdrawers.

F1 Error code


F1 is flood error. basically water has arrived at the bottom board. you can unplug the dishdrawer, remove the bottom drawer and dry the board at the bottom, maybe with a hair dryer carefully. this will reset the fault, but this is a fault that may appear again. replace the actuators that close the lid of the drawer that is leaking (look for signs of water running our of one of the drawers).

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.

Keep blowing fuses


This means there is water collected on the base of the dishwasher cabinet under the bottom drawer. You will need to disconnect the dishwasher mains plug and take the bottom drawer out to dry the base out. Follow instructions in this manual (page 7 step 2) to remove the drawer.

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.

Often water left in base of drawer upper and or lower... Not cleaning well. Powdery substance on dishes


Assuming you are using the correct rinse aid and detergent, my opinion is that there is muck in the drain hoses.

If you have cleaned the area under the filter plate and there is no difference, then I suggest you buy two Finish dishwasher cleaner kits from the super market.

Follow instructions on the kit and run empty drawer (one at a time) with the kit in it and at the longest cycle which will ensure a temperature of atleast 60deg.

See if there is any difference.

Water left in the bottom of dishdraw


Try running a wash with a dishwasher cleaner product.

There may be a slight blockage of the outlet pipe caused by grease. On a kinked pipe this will be enough to stop it emptying properly.

Make sure the outlet pipe has a plastic former to prevent a kink at the highest point, and that the hose isn't flattened or pulled taut.

If after running the cleaner and checking, there is no improvement at all, the pump impeller may be obstructed or a replacement pump needed.

Hope this helps your problem.
