I installed a brand new Fisher and Paykel Dishdrawer this evening. We went through the final steps, including running both drawers through a full rinse cycle and checking for leaks. Those went through just fine, but once dishes and soap are put in and it's set to go on a real cycle, after a couple of minutes I get the "Inadequate Fill" light.
How is it that it is getting water (the dishwasher sounded like it was getting water and it was all wet inside after the rinse cycle completed) but it cannot get enough for a real cycle?

Re: Brand new dishwasher not working
Try this test:
add water (one gallon each try) by hand fill and try the cycle again. Continue until light goes out. If light never goes out, then faulty water level switch or wiring. If light goes out, then water inlet valve is stopping too early, but need more info to determine why. Try this test: open door and find the door switch. Then activate the switch and turn on machine to watch water come in. It should not just "dribble" in; try to determine if water pressure is sufficient coming in.

I have a single drawer F&P dishwasher. This morning a safety switch trigged. This afternoon when I went to use the dishwasher found that it had no power. There are no lights and there was a smell of something burning. The power outlet has power. Can you help?
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.
