I had the problem with the top draw not draining properly and the dishwasher showing the U3 fault code on my DD601 v.1, I did'nt have a copy of the dishwasher manual so it took the following steps, this is best done out side to save on messing your kitchen up!!!
\015\012Firstly make sure you unplug the dish washer form the electricity supply, open the top draw, now you will have to go underneath this draw and remove the bottom cover which has 9 holding tags which are very easy to over come, now you should see the top drain pipe(Black pipe) quickly remove that from the connector and remember to catch the water with a bucket!! now remove the red non return valve from the tube and reconnect the pipe, you will have to now plug the dishwasher back into the electricity supply and connect the waste water pipes to either a hose or your nearest tap, you will now back flush the waste pipe back through the pump you should find waste food being pushed out, don't fill the draw up to much, pick these out and take the waste water pipe away from the tap and into a bucket and allow contents of the dishwasher draw to drain into this and see how much rubbish you get, repeat as necessary I did it about 6 time until I was satisfied then reconnect as normal and away you go.Remember to put the non return valve back in aswell!!!!!!!
\015\012Good luck, hopefully this will save you a fortune bills

Have you check the tunnel between the kidney shaped sump and the well that the rotor motor locks into, often chips of crockery,seeds etc get caught in here and reduce the flow rate .You will need to remove the rotor motor,its easy, lift out racks then sprayarm to expose rotor motor turn locking ring to release stainless sieve lift out, then turn motor assembly anti clockwise and lift out.With something flexible eg 4mm insulated wire push it through tunnel from sump to motor well.

I have a F&P Model DD602I. I had a repairman out to change out hoses that were bad and now I have this problem: When I just run the bottom unit, it works fine, but a bunch of water ends up in the top unit that I have to drain out. If I just run the top unit, water collects in that unit causing a default. Now if I run both units together and I start the top unit about 3 seconds after starting the bottom unit, both units work fine! When I look at the hoses under the sink, they loop down quite a bi

Greetings. I have a Fisher & Paykel dishdrawer - the top drawer appears to have lost power mid cycle and the lid has not retracted - no led display - no response from the buttons.

Hello, my Bosch Classixx dishwasher SGS43E42EU/21 has me stumped. It starts by taking in water but when "filled" pumps out for a couple of seconds then refills for say 10 seconds more before another 2 or 3 seconds of pumping out. This cycle continues for ages without starting to wash. I've tried various things: - checked the Auto Stop valve isn't being activated by leakage (removing the polystyrene float and bottom tray makes no difference - there's no leak) - the valve seems to operate it

LG LDF6810ST had OE error. Disassembled found no obstructions blew air through and vacuumed hoses to air gap and to disposer, no obstructions.

Is this the circuit on the bottom right of unit or the pcb up top? Wires and connections all look fine. What else could it be. Any suggestions appreciated!
