    It is factory finish, stainless steel. Is that what you mean?

    Hi Carmen,

    My double drawer dish washer is built into my cabinets, how do I go about unplugging them? Do I have to pull the drawer out, if so, how? Or is it all the wiring under the drawer that needs to be messed with? thanks!

Hi there FM, Your Dishdrawer is it intergated or does it have a factory finish on it? This will help me ask the next question? Kind Regards Carmen

    Hi there FM,

    Ok have you tried switching it off for 10 seconds at the wall and switching it back on, as it sounds like it is in display mode and needs to be reset.

    Kind regards Carmen

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.

Top drawer can not be open

If this is a double drawer dishwasher and bottom drawing is functional but top drawer won't open means the controller on top drawer is faulty or power circuit is locked. If turning the mains power off and back on makes no difference then controller could be the problem. One way to test is to take the controller from bottom drawer and replace that in the top drawer. This requires a lot of patience and experience with electronic stuff. If you are not brave enough to test then call the technician. The controller is about $200 to buy. Make sure the mains power socket is taken out before working on the dishwasher internals.

Fisher Paykel double drawer built in top drawer stops mid cycle.

It would help to know which LEDS are on when it stops. Are you able to open the lid etc. Does this happen with the short rinse cycle as well?

Fisher and paykel twin draw

I'm not really sure. With the double drawer configuration, I know the top drawer is larger than the bottom drawer. If I had to take a guess, I would say the single drawer might fit in the top of the double drawer.

Hi there, Sounds like your product is in display mode so you will need to switch the product off for 10 seconds at the wall and switching it back on to reset it. Kind regards Carmen
