Having problems with your Fisher and Paykel Dishwashers ?

How do you stop the water not draining. I ran the DD603 last night and this morning found the drawer still containing the rinse water. Obviously everything was wet. I do NOT want to call out an engineer. They are hopeless and do not solve the problem, merely get the machine operational again without solving the root cause.


Answers :

If the water doesn't drain from your dishwasher, check these:
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. Drain line/air gap--A clog in this part is the usual\015\012reason that a dishwasher doesn't drain. Remove the drain line to clear\015\012any debris from the hose or hose connection at the household drain line\015\012connection. Reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.
  2. \015\012
  3. Pump--You can reach the pump from inside the\015\012dishwasher. Remove the lower rack, spray arm and support. Look for an\015\012impeller, a device that spins around and forces water through the spray\015\012arm. This is the wash impeller and beneath it is the drain impeller\015\012that pushes the water into the drain port. Replace it if found\015\012defective or worn out.
  4. \015\012
  5. Drain valve/solenoid---The drain valve may have a\015\012solenoid with lever that sticks or frozen and prevents the dishwasher\015\012from draining. Free up the solenoid and lubricate the lever.
  6. \015\012
  7. Belt---A certain brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. Replace it if broken or worn out.
  8. \015\012
  9. Motor---Check it if turning or working.Turn the rotor\015\012manually to see if stuck and free it up. Replace if defective, it is\015\012not serviceable.

Our maytag is about ten years old. No big problems that a little vinegar wouldn't solve once in awhile. Lately, we ran out of water softener salt and a white film was on dishes and not getting clean. I filled the water softener again, and did the vinegar wash, which helped a little. Now dishes not getting clean. I got desperate and did an empty load with CLR in it. Still, not effective.

My Kenmore ultra wash dishwasher fills with a little bit of water but does not spray water and does not proceed through the wash cycle. Any advice? We had problems yesterday with blinking lights and not able to get anything to work except the drain. then we followed a sequence of pushing buttons and it solved the first problem.


The spray arm rotates based on the water pressure coming out of them. If no water pressure, then no rotation. You probably have a clog on the intake hose. You can pull out the dishwasher, tip it forward so you can get to the bottom and then rem ... Kenmore Dishwashers

Our LG Model LDF6810ST Dishwasher (2 years old) does not heat water any more. Dishes do not get clean and do not get dry. I do not get an error code. I assume I need to replace the control board OR heater assembly. How do I determine how to solve the problem?

The is for the model: DDW1899WP. The cycle is getting stuck in the first phase and the soap container is not opening. When I open the soap contain, water has seeped in because the soap is moist and hard rather than loose and powdered. In addition, water is pooling int he bottom of the dishwasher. I tried adding more rinse aid because that has solved the problem in the past but it is still persisting.

Bosch E15, I see from your site is a water pressure problem. (thanks) I think we have solved that, it old house water pressure gets low, needed resetting. But now how do I clear the error so I can try it? Sounds like there is air in the system. It is a French Bosch machine, the robinet ferme is blinking, sel & liquid rincage are lit, auto 45-65 is blinking. We opened it while it was running, and this all happened from that.

We are getting a grit on the dishes on the top rack. We have done many things to solve the problem. Running tang crystles, runing CLR through it, taking it apart to check for blockages, checking the impeller on the pump, blowing comprssed air through it, scrubbing the inside many times. The funny thing is it only happens about every third wash cycle or so. The upper spray arm is free with no obstruction. The dishes on the bottom rack are clean. We use Electosol and jet dry. Our water is softened

My LG dishwasher upper rack has stopped cleaning. The uppermost arm is seemingly getting no water at all and the arm on the underside of the upper rack is getting some water, but not enough to turn it. I have already disassembled and cleaned all the way down to the diverter assembly and it has not fixed the problem. I think this is a problem with a the (?) diverter pump or perhaps a sensor that sends water to the upper arms. I am trying to figure out how to further diagnose the problems. The

On an AEG Favorit 64570 VI we have an error 20. Manual indicates a drainage problem, however when we pour in water, it gets pumped out without a problem. No obstructing in the exhaust tube. Next we checked the pressure sensor, by taking it out and blowing into it. It clicked as pressure was applied to it, so the inner switch worked. Everything is clean, but still we get an error 20. What does seem strange is that the appliance does not take in water. Any suggestions are welcome.

The top rack isn't getting clean. Could this be a pressure problem our an internal problem? It's not whishing like it used to. The water isn't reaching into the glasses. I think the only water getting to the top rack is what is sprayed onto the bottom rack dishes.

I then connected the pressure hose w/out the wand and water flowed thru the hose fine. When I connect the wand and pull the trigger, nothing. I have replaced the wand and that was not the problem.

My dishwasher (Kenmore Elite 665) doesn't use up all the detergent in the detergent cup - it always leaves a little behind at the end of the cycle. the dishes don't get quite as clean any more, either.

I'm guessing that the water pressure may be low, and that it may be due to the same problem. Is there a screen-type filter that filters the incoming water, before it enters th

I have since tried to restart and have the same problem lights 2 and 3 are flashing indicating there is no water getting through, how can this be.

FDW60 Fault Hi, I have exactly the same problem. My dishwasher starts and washes ok but appears to get very hot during the drying phase and then the two lights fast and eco flash warning of a heater problem. I suspect either the heater, thermostat or control PCB. As the rest of the cycle seems of and the water gets hot then I'm assuming the heater and thermostat are OK. When the dishwasher attempts to dry is when the problem starts. Did anyone find out what there fault was? Thanks
