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

I cannot open the draw something is stuck in it


Answers :

Your dishwasher has a top lid to seal the tube when it in operation. The seal mode is achieved by 2 actuator valves on both side of the housing pulling your top lid down. Model from 603 to current actuators are electric motor. For previous models they are vacuum pump activation.
\015\012When the actuators are bad they are either not pulling down the top lid causing a leak, or not releasing top lid back to its original position causing the lid stuck and the tub can not be pulled out as in your case.
\015\012Let's go to diagnostic test mode to see if you can retrieve the the actuator hence the tube out.
\015\0121- Press Lock button and start/pause key until the display showing up.
\015\0122- Press Power to show HO.
\015\0123- Press start button to advance the display until you see LD or LS, if you pass, keep doing it to get it back in a loop.
\015\0124- When at LD or LS, press lock to turn on, press a agin to turn off.
\015\0125- Listen to the sound of Actuators and at the same time, try to pull the tube out.
\015\0126- When it is done, just press the Power button to get out od the diagnstic mode.
\015\0127- If you are lucky, if just the seal to replace then it is easier than repalcing the actuators. Good luck.

To open this latch, the handle works as a lever to push inward when you push up on the handle. If your handle if broken, it has probably ceased to work as a lever (the pivot pins have likely broken). You want to push in on the handle to open the latc ... Maytag 24 in. MDB3700 Built-in Dishwasher

Machine cannot finish cycle and is stuck in pumping out mode. Only tiny amount of water in drain basin at bottom, no excessive water. Was set at 10pm, still attempting to drain 8am! Has no diagnostic dials or manual over rides so continues on whether door is open or closed, even if I switch off and on again. Possible related issue, recently finish at end of washes has been "grainy", far from perfect, surfaces slightly sandy feeling.

Dishwasher - Bosche - SHV43A03GB - When the main power switch is ON, even with the door open the pump/motor continues to run (ie. Stop-cycle does not operate). However, the wash-program itself does not run, even with the door closed (ie. No water entering the dishwasher, even though water supply is on and feed lines are clear - not kinked). It is like the program is 'stuck' and I cannot seem to get it to reset.

Drawers Stuck I've had my dishwasher for a couple of years now. All of the sudden the drawers are extremely difficult to open. I have to use all my strength to pry open the drawers so I can get the dishes out.  It started out as only the bottom drawer having the problem and now both drawers are having it.  It seems to be running fine because the dishes that were in the drawer before it got stuck were cleaned.  And there is nothing blocking the drawer from opening.  It seems like the seal that c

Had my Maytag dishwasher for just over 2 years. Lately is has been making a loud grinding/vibrating noise - like something is stuck. I actually pulled out a piece of a plastic twist tie or something and thought I had solved the problem. Worked like a charm for a couple of days and suddenly the sound is back - and worse! I've read here that you should remove the bottom piece and make sure nothing is stuck before calling service. I'm the woman that's going to do this and could use some guidance ..
