Having problems with your Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603SS Built-in Dishwasher ?

My Fisher Paykel pushes water from one drawer to the other? How do I get it to drain completely?  Have cleaned filters.


Answers :

Hi, welcome.
Cross-draining usually is because there's a single air gap connected to both drawers, which have individual drain hoses. The only way water goes from one drawer to the other is because the hoses are connected at the end of the line. There is a small "flapper" valve on each machine that is supposed to allow water to flow only out of the drain, but they are small and not designed to hold back the flow of a pump.

You have two option. One is to install a standpipe under the sink and make sure the drain hoses point down into it, (expensive)
or replace the single air gap with the proper style "dual air gap"
You can get them here and it will positively solve the problem:

Hi, I have a Fisher Paykel DD603I (integrated) dishdrawer unit. The bottom drawer soap dispenser has water in it after it runs (and leftover soap), and there is a small amount of water sitting in the bottom of the drawer. The dishes don't get totally clean. I have removed and cleaned the spray arm, drain filter, filter plate and bottom of tub. Found nothing clogged or particularly dirty. Put all the parts back in and everything moves freely. Ran it empty, and same problem occurred.


Hi Dishwashers use Bi-Metal strip to allow the dispenser to open/close. This strip when heat up causes the soap door spring to open up the dispenser. If this strip is not heated doe ... Fisher and Paykel Dishwashers

My Frigidaire Dishwasher FDB1050RES2 gets stuck in a rinse cycle. The light on the front will be lit "clean" but the bottom of the washer is full of water. Opening the door does not turn off the "clean" light. For me to get it to run, I have to unplug it, plug it back in, push the start button until the ?washing? light comes on. I then push the start button once more and the dishwasher will begin to drain. I open the door as soon as I hear the water stop draining into the sink drain. This

My chef classic dishwasher is not completely cleaning the dishes. There is no obstruction to the tablet/powder door opening, although there is a small amount of powder left at the end of the cycle. Both top & bottom spray bars are clear & rotate, the water is heating & there appears to be plenty of water getting water into the machine. Drain filters are also clear.

GU2400 whirlpool gold quiet partner iii. Won't clean dishes. Dishes don't get wet. Water seems to accumulate at the bottom but no spraying sound during cycle. Cancel causes the system to drain completely. Possibly plastic utensil under the filter screen at bottom. Can't figure out how to remove it or the filter screen. Might be preventing impeller blades from rotating.

I have a Kitchen Aid KUDS03CTSS3 dishwasher. Dirty water is staying at the bottom and nothing comes out the drain hose during the entire cycle. The drain hose is looped above the kitchen P-trap, although for a time it wasn't. I use a wet vac to get the water out but there is still water below the fine filter. I thought if I could get the fine filter off, I could clean out the bottom as I think that it's full of crud down there that may be blocking things. I can't figure out how to get the l

Water problem Hi, I have a Jenn air DW 711 that does not get water. I checked the following: Water line: I unhooked the water line and it is clear & free flowing. Float: The float moves up and down as it should. Filter: The filter inside the tub is clean. The motor runs and will drain any water in the tub I put a bucket of water in the tub and the dishwasher immediately drains no matter which setting I choose. Any ideas? Thanks, Steve

My fisher paykel DD603 fills with water at the start of the cycle and stops with the following error code and a beeping noise: - error U1 spanner symbol - crossed out faucet symbol. The water level is high enough that the spray arm is floating in the water. I am able to drain the water by entering the hardware diagnostics mode and running the motor in the drain direction. By removing the filter plate and examining the impellers I am not able to see visible damage. All filters are clean. The

Ran the dishwasher and the water didn't drain completely. Checked the drain line for clog - it was clear. Scooped out the remaining water (barely covered the flat wire mesh filter in bottonm of the machine) and cleaned off the canister mesh filter and carefully relocked the filtyer in place. Tried to run the machine last night. Soap tray opened but apparently no water cycled through the machine as all the soap was in the bottom of the machine.

Westinghouse Virtuoso 922 dishwasher. Wash cycle completes, but water does not drain out. If I let the cycle continue, after a delay the rinse cycle starts, but of course no clean water is pumped in so the dishes are "rinsed" in the dirty wash water. The wash cycle itself is successful with water pumping all around the washer if I open the door mid-cycle. I have removed and cleaned all filters which were correctly fitted so I am confident there is no foreign matter inside pump. When the water sh

My dish washer isn't cleaning the dishes well. There are little particals inside of every cup and on dishes after it is done. I just emptied and and now I'm running it with bleach. But before I started it I looked at the drain hose under the sink. The drain hose had water in it. The drain hose is going uphill from the dishwasher to the sink so I don't know if this is normal to have some water in the drain hose when the washer completes since it's not would have to pump uphill to get to the garba

Asko 1996 appears "dead".....no lights flashing, won't respond to repeatedly pushing on/off button. Some water left in the bottom...siphoned it out, cleaned filters, no blockage there.

I have a 13 month old (Thanks Sears warranty!) Kenmore Portable Dishwasher Model 665.17769. It drains poorly, taking 2-3 times after load is completed running thru the ''cancel/drain'' cycle to clean it out. It is not getting dishes clean either, presumambly because the dirty water isn't being flushed out at cycle end and instead of rinsing with fresh water, it's still screwing with the dirty water. Manual doesn't offer any advice except to see if the hose is kinked (it isn't). I made sure nothi

I assume that what appears to be the filter needs to cleaned but I'm not sure how to remove it to clean it. Is the plastic area with all of the square holes on the bottom of the appliance the filter? That part is what seems to be clogged. Thanks!

Hi :) We have a Bosch slimline dishwasher type SRS56A02 GB/08 - it doesn't draw in water - the timer counts down but nothing happens. We checked these pages and cleaned the filters on the inlet water line but no change :( I saw that it might be the inlet water valve - is this easy to get to - do we need to take off panels? if so, is there a manual available please? Over the past week or so it had got noiser - it was at its quietest while the water was draining out of the machine.
