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

1 Answer

Fisher and Paykel dishdrawer, lid not retracting, no power.

We have a Fisher and Paykel dishdrawer. This evening the top drawer was very difficult to open and it was apparent that the lid had not retracted. There is no power and water has not drained. The drawer was not overloaded.
The bottom dishdrawer seems to be operating as normal.

Any ideas?

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.

Fisher paykel dishdrawer

It is likely the top panel of the drawer needs cleaning.
First turn off the mains power to dishwasher and take the plug out if accessible. Wait a little and put the plug back and turn on the mains power. If this does not fix the problem, then get clean damp cloth and wipe the panel buttons on top inside of drawer.

The time on now shows 107 instead of 127 min. drawer Fisher & Pakel double

your dishdrawer is in ECO mode. Press the ECO button on the program panel on top of drawer lid. This should restore the Heavy wash time to 127min.

Fisher paykel dd24scx6 lid fault

This error is linked to the mechanisms that operate the lid seal of the drawer.

If the drawer feels hard when moving in and out, then the lid seal could be stuck in close position and the movement actuator motors may have lost power.
If there is no change in the situation after turning off the mains power and turning it back on, then there is a component failure linked to the lid seal.

Will need a technician to fix it if you are not very familiar with fixing electrical stuff. The lid seal actuator assembly is very complex. The easiest to fix is a failed power board under the drawer and the hardest is to replace the actuator motor if it has gone faulty.

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.

Dishdrawers display F1 fault, what do I do?

The flood switch at the base of the dishwasher (under the bottom drawer) has triggered. This means water has collected at the base of the dishwasher housing. This can happen for many reasons, leaking drawer lid seal, broken drain hose, broken water inlet hose, etc.

You will need to find the source of the leak. Also incorrect detergent can cause foaming which triggers the flood switch.
Turn the mains power to dishwasher off and take the cable out of the socket. You will have to find a way to take the bottom drawer out. Usually it needs a plyer to pull out the plastic fasteners one on each side. Slowly take the front cover out and lift the drawer off the rail and bring it out.Make sure the controller or display panel do not fall out. Use masking tape to hold these in place. Leave it on the floor without tugging too much on the cable and hoses. Dry the base with towels and hair dryer. The flood switch is mounted on a circuit board located in the base.

Put everything back and conne power and try again.
Hoses need to be replaced if these are source. Also lid seal can be replaced if this is the cause.
Use recommended detergent. (no power balls) or tablets.
good luck.

How do i fix an F5 error code on a Fisher & Paykel Dishdraw DS605. I have turned the power off but the error keeps returning?

I am assuming you have the DD605 double drawer dishwasher. Is the problem F5 on both drawers or just one?

F5 code involves the drawer lid seal and will need a bit of effort to check and fix.

Take the drawer out and inspect the inside of the top panel for a black rubber strip. If it is broken or not responding to up down movement then it needs to be replaced. In addition the actuator motors on each side that drive the seal could be faulty.

If you are not comfortable with repairing slightly complex apliances then you may have to call the technician.

Leaking from top dishdrawer when closed

I realize this is an old question but for anyone else looking for an answer to this - yes, this can be owner rectified if you don't mind a bit of fiddly work in confined space. I fixed the lid on my to drawer about a year ago and works fine so far. I can't remember exactly now but what i did was to remove the drawer to access the comparment and exposed the plastic actuator mechanisms which lower the lid. If i remember correctly it was the little motors which operate the actuators that needed servicing, cleaning if i recall. What i suspect is that once a flooding condition occurs as a result of a protruding object blocking the closing of the lid the motors get dirty and stop working thus perpetuating the problem.
ps. the trick to removing the drawer is to push in the plastic clips which secure the sliding rails
