Have a Fisher and Paykel double drawer dishwasher, model on front of book says Ds605 and dd605. The top drawer leaves about 3 or 4 cups of water in it, will not drain completely.
The bottom drawer has more water left in it.
What do you suggest to try, they will not drain completely.
What can I do?

What does the red light with beeping and the letters FE mean? The dishes appear to be clean, but there is still some clean water in the drawer.

Our Fisher Paykel dishwasher had a error code F9 and the lower drawer was extremely hard to open.
Now it is hard to close and open.

So I haven’t been able to find out why our drawer dishwasher, Fisher Paykel, 7 years old has both the screen and all of the washing selection lights flashing at the same time. There is no code either. Anyone?
Thanks

fisher and paykel dishwasher dd6051H keeps going into drain cycle. there is no water in it. the only way to stop it is to shut the power off. it does not have fault codes to look at. this model only have lights. how do you diagnose if you can’t see fault codes.

I have a Fisher Paykel DD602 and my LCD display went out on my upper drawer, so I ordered a new one.
Just installed and all I get is a yellow light – no fault codes or can’t even turn power on or off.
It is just lit up yellow.
I have tried turning power off to it and turning back on but same thing.
I replace the main control board about 3 years ago and it’s has worked great.

Chris,
Is the LCD Display replacement the exact same?
Check the end of the wiring harness to be sure the old one is the exact same as the new one.
If you have the exact OEM part, then check all wiring as there may be a wiring problem or possibly the new LED Display is faulty.

I have a fisher and paykel double dishwasher.
There is no power at all besides the bottom dishwasher display which continually flashes.
I tried to power the dishwasher to another power point but the same thing occurs.
I don’t have any error code displayed.

I am having the exact same problem as Leslie in the second comment. All of the symbols rotate and flash on and off, the time continues a rapid countdown… and the little melody it play is rather annoying. Can’t seem to find an explanation for this error anywhere. Any suggestions?

The washing program of my washer – the upper drawer – starts normally and it is functioning properly for some 30-40 minutes.
After that the clock/counter sticks in a number and it does not move further.
While washing continues to operate endlessly and without moving to the next stage.
The program never reaches an end.
No fault code is displayed!

FISHER AND PAYKEL…
“Heavy”, “Fast”, and “Rinse” are all lit up.
Five minutes is the only setting that will run.
I took the arm off and cleaned the drawer with vinegar.
I manually took out the water / vinegar mixture.
It is not working except for a cycle of five minutes.
Bottom drawer is working perfectly.

On my top drawer; Three lights are lit… Heavy, fast, and and rinse. The lights on the front are flashing blue/red (purple?) and the lock button is flashing. When I touch the flashing light (purple?) it plays a tune, why? It will only run for 5 minutes, fill a little with cold water then just quit. I can’t find anything in the book about that.
