Question about Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603SS Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

F2 Code Hey, I have a single drawer built in Fisher & Paykel dish drawer and today I pulled the spray arm, filter and large metal screen out to clean them as we have been starting to get a bit of stuff left behind after washing lately. That was all good After putting it all back in though I went to use the dishwasher and it stopped and came up with an F2 fault, I thought I may not have put the bits back in properly so pulled them out again and noticed that on the rotor that connects the motor to the spray arm (best way i can think to describe it) 2 out of 3 of the small, thin, blue tabs that run vertically on the sides had broken off and the third looks very nearly broken also... I assume I probably did this by not having everything lined up quite right.. Would this be the cause of my F2 fault and would supergluing these pieces back on (it's easy to see where they came from) be likely to get my dishwasher working again?

Fault F2 means the rotor is not rotating. If you say some of the vanes have broken off, they could have been jamming it. This should spin freely with minimal force when installed correctly. If you removed the rotor itself, you do ned to take care when installing it - there are 3 thin plastic legs around the magnet (the blue bit) these fit into 3 slots and you need to line them up very carefully. Once you have it right, it will just drop in. The rotor asembly as a whole is secured by turning the outside clockwise until the 3 points line up with the arrows.

Check the rotor is spinning freely, if not, remove it and check there is nothing lodged undrneath it of that it has been fitted incorrectly.

Re the broken vanes - you could try gluing them but I think it will break. The pump spins at 4200 RPM! You may need to but a new rotor.

I have a f1 come up and a f2 on my dishwasher what is it


f1 = Flood Code

This means that the dishwasher most likely has a leak

There is a float switch in the bottom of the machine and when water gets down there it trips the code

F2 = Roter not moving

you can remove the basket and spray arm and pull the roter out and make sure its clean and give it a try.

I have a Fisher/Paykel dual drawer dishwasher and the top drawer now makes a loud grinding noise - appears to be coming from the front of the unit. Any thoughts? Any home-based solutions?


Remove dish rack, spray arm, remove filters, remove the rotor (under the spray arm) Check if the rotor itself is making any sound or not rotating freely when you turn the impeller on the top. Replace if needed, otherwise - carefully check for debris.

Fisher & Paykel dishwasher model dd602 error code F4


Hi there,
It means your filter is dirty. Remove metal plate at bottom & scrub with a toothbrush. Clean arms as well.
Clean all around the door & pull out the lift out filter, scrub clean with a toothbrush.

Fisher Paykel Dishwasher Door Open error code


If it is a dish drawer type there is a clip at the rear of the drawer that holds the drawer closed. you will need to withdraw the drawer partially to look in. with the drawer open the fingers should be facing towards you. If not you will need to reach in and pull the top of the fingers towards the front. there is a replacement arm that holds the pipes and cables away from this part.
