Having problems with your Fisher and Paykel 24 in. DS-603 Built-in Dishwasher ?

3 problems: 1. lower drawer is hard to close; seems to be sticking on something. 2. lower drawer retains water (2 inches) after completing a cycle. 3. F1 fault code on both drawers with alert occurred when washers were not in use. I had to turn off the electric circuit breaker to make it stop.


Answers :

Ok where to start, first thing the bottom draw is hard to close because they use 2 little motors on either side to pull a lid with a seal on it down on top of each draw when u start it to keep the water in, if its hard to close the motors are damaged and arnt lifting the lid back up when the cycle finishes making it hard to open and shut, now the F1 fault means the filter circuit board in the base of the machine has been activated basically a flood sensor (and controls minor components ie lid actuators), the unit should beep and flash and go spaztic and you should hear the drain pump come on continuously til u turn it off at the wall thats its way of trying to stop a leak by removing any water it can but will not actually remove the water from the base where the switch is, you will probably find it will work now as the water will have dried and stopped triggering the switch but wont stay like that for long, that machine has major issues its leaking bad from somewhere and id say it leaked onto the lid motors and fried em, the parts you will most probably have to replace is the filter board in the base, both bottom draw lid actuators (small motors), probably the bottom draw lid if you damaged the seal pulling the draw in and out and whatever is leaking and if any other componets where damaged by water, so if its outta warranty id go buy a new 1 with 5 year extended warranty

I have a fisher & Pakel dishwasher and it appears to have brown a fuse inside the machine which means it does not work at all and the problem occurred during the wash cycle. This means the seal (which is a top piece that's lifted and lowered by two motors. When the seal is in the lowered position it creates a complete seal but it also locks the drawer (single drawer dishwasher) so it cannot be pulled out. I repaired the dishwasher two years ago. One of the lifter motors didn't work. I replaced t

Lower drawer F1 error code, I suspect possible seal leak. Very small amount of water on floor. Upper washer control panel cycles rapidly through all programs and back light is burned out. I suspect control board malfunction. Repair facility, or tack it myself?


Yes this means that the machine is detecting water under the bottom drawer. Pull the bottom drawer out and soak up the water with a towel and then the error will go away. This happens often because something gets put in the drawer that's too ta ... Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603SS Built-in Dishwasher

The upper and lower dish drawers leaves a puddle of water under each (maybe 6" in diameter) after the shortest cycle. There is a small amout of water left in the clear protective housing on the underside of the upper drawer. There is a hole at the bottom of the housing that lets the water out. Maybe there is a slightly loose hose? If so how do you get the housing off and tighten it? I presume the lower drawer may be doing the same thing, but I can't see it with out removing the drawer.

Fisher Paykel DD603 Problem. Top drawer shows F1 and pump runs continuously. Lower drawer does nothing, no display. I think the Electronic Controller in lower drawer is fried and maybe the Mains Filter Board. Please help.


Yup, definately the bottom drawer controller, for some reason you can run a DD603 with no board in the top, so long as you have a board in the bottom, but not the other way around. This is the fault you get, constant F1 from the top drawer. If you ar ... Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603SS Built-in Dishwasher

I have the two drawer model dish-drawer system. In the past the top seal leaked and since has been replaced with a new seal. Worked well for several years after but then the top drawer quit running. So we started to use the bottom drawer. That was fine for awhile althought it would pump waste water into the top drawer. Now neither drawer will work. The bottom drawer starts up and shuts down. I pulled the lower drawer and it is dry.

My kids put liquid dish soap (not for dish washers) into the hole where you put special rinse product. We got all the soap out of the hole and took towels to dry out the tub, but F1 comes on even when the washer is turned off. We have the double tall dish drawer in stainless steel. Even though they did not put anything in the bottom drawer it too comes on by it self and shows F1. I can not find our manual. Please help. Thank you so much. Kim Toth

Two drawer dish washer ... Both drawers drain fine when operated individually but the top drawer will not drain fully if the bottom drawer is operated at the same time (bottom drawer drains fine in these conditions). I am guessing that this is a setting issue rather than a clog, but what is the mechanism that is tripped when both drawers are cleaning? Perhaps a mother board issue?

We just purchased a used Fisher and Paykel DS 603-i. After installing and running the normal cycle there was a lot of water left on the bottom of each drawer. We ran the bottom drawer (water stil siiting on the bottom of the top drawer) and part way through the main wash cycle we got what I think was a F1 error code (we do not have the LCD version but the Rinse light was activated). I took out the bottom drawer, dried out the basin and then took out the washer and reattached the drainage pipes t

I have a dishdrawer (2) and following the use of a dishwasher cleaner, the bottom drawer appears to have developed a blockage. It will not empty, gets to the pump out part of the cycle and shows the red error code F3, to which there is no reference in the trouble shooting guide. The top drawer has also developed minute leak, sufficient enough to leave dribble marks on the lower drawer and over time, a white deposit on the floor. Is there anything we can do for the blockage problem before reso

I have a mdd8000aws dishwasher. After a power outage (2 days) the power came back on, and the bottom drawer no longer works. It still make the chiming noise when the drawer is opened, but the control panel is not fully lit up and the washer will not start in any mode. The lights seem to flicker for a short moment and then they all stay very lightly lit up. Is this just a bad control panel or is there some other circuit that needs replaced? BTW, the top drawer works perfectly.

Our 2 drawer Fisher and Paykel dishwasher is automatically starting its own washing cycle (well, motor starts, but no water appears to be entering), then it shows F1 error message and a spanner icon flashes. Within 30 secs of this occurring on one drawer, this starts on the other drawer. Only way to stop is to switch off at power socket. Any idea what the error message is telling me?
