What is the flood switch on a dw60cdx1

We had an F1 error with our F&P dish draw,Isolated the power to machine, then I removed the drawer & cover from the flood sensor, Dried water with towel & used hairdryer. Power cycled the unit & has fixed the problem. Had used a different powder & believe that it created more foam that caused the machine to flood slightly

Where is the reset button for the flood switch

There is none. You have to dry the base of the dishwasher housing where flood switch is located. Make sure the dishwasher is plugged off before you attempt any work on it. Take the drawer out and use towels and hair dryer to dry the base under the drawer. The cause of the leak needs to be determined. Perhaps broken lid seal or leaky hoses.

Fisher and Paykel DD603 can't be drained completely

https://www.manualslib.com/manual/575481/Fisher-And-Paykel-Dishdrawer-Dd603.html?page=22#manual this link takes you to the service manual for your machine, there will be details on manually testing individual components, you should be able to operate the pump and check that it is performing as it should, page 39 describes the process to lift out the rotor, do that and check the rotor impeller, this is the drain pump, if the rotor vanes are broken you will need to replace it,

F&P dishwasher (DD603i) has no power to top drawer

No power to the top drawer needs to be verified.

Are you saying the lights are blank and when you press the start buttion nothing happens?

One reason the controller can shut the power is that the heater overload protection thermal resistor has opened. Unfortunately the only way to fix this is to replace the entire heater plate at the bottom of the drawer.

To confirm if the controller is operational or not, press Keylock and Start/ Pause button together for 5 sec (press Keylock first) and see if the Lights light up. If nothing happens then either the power has shutoff as mentioned above or controller is faulty.

Depending on your familiarity with such equipment you could try to replace and fix. I am not quite sure what the new model you mention is. I believe all DD603 models have power to the 2 drawers coming from the base board.

My fisher n paykel draw dishwasher wont start it has three buttons a (on/off )(play/pause)(lock symbol) wat do i press to make it all start,

First press the ON/ OFF button to see if the display lights up. Once you select the program from the panel then press the PLay/ Pause button to start the cycle. Pressing the key button will prevent accidental pressing of the ON/ OFF or the Play./ pause button when the dishwasher is running. It is a child lock button. To turn it off (if you have selected it) press Keylock button again.
