Fisher & Paykel dishwasher drawer won't run, beeps F2 error code

Greetings!

My mother-in-law went to use her 18-month old Fisher&Paykel DD603i (with integrated cabinet drawer fronts) bottom drawer on Thanksgiving, but it started beeping and showed an error with the motor. She usually just uses the top drawer, since there are only two people in the house. From what I can determine from looking around the FixYa site, this system uses a magnetic system to turn the impeller? Is that correct?

From the messages I've read, it looks like someone here may have a service manual for this unit? If so, would you be kind enough to forward it to me also?

My mom-in-law would greatly appreciate it, and I could probably get an extra slice of leftover pumpkin pie!!

Thanks,
Craig

    my dishwasher is filled with water and when I tried a rinse cycle hoping it would drain the water, I got an F2 error message. Do not want to call an applicance man AGAIN on this dishwasher.



    thanks

    Wow! I can't remember how much I paid for this THING but I certainly didn’t get what I paid for. I've had this washer for about 2 1/4 years and had it break twice. It now is showing Error F2! What the H is F2! And why did I buy a Fisher & Paykel even though it is rated always in the medium range of customer approval? Maybe I'm the one that needs to go into the repair shop. HELL-P!!!!

    PS: So, how do you get this THING to empty the water form the basin? It's going to get rancid and stink.... THX!

    Every time that has happened to me it is due to the filter at the bottom of the drawer needing cleaning. It's a very fine mesh and doesn't take long for it to start to clog. Remove it from the bottom of the drawer and scrub it well with hot soapy water and a brush. My bet is that's the cause of the problem. When I finally realized this, I quit complaining about my machine. I still don't love all the beeps, but at least now it works as it should. I've never had to have it repaired.

Craig, we had virtually the same situation.  The repair man  came and it took 2 minutes to fix.  The problem was that the bottom drawer had not been used for a couple of years and thus the impellor had jammed.  to fix it take out the basket, lift off the rotor arm and unscrew the knob.  Then just work the impellor around with your fingers until it frees.  It then worked perfectly.  We will use the bottom often from now on to prevent this happening again. By now the left over pumpkin pie will be a bit green!!

    F2 means that your rotor isn't moving properly and will need to be replace or it needs to be removed and check for something blocking it. Below is a link to a video that will show you how to take your dishwasher apart and repair your Fisher and Paykel unit.

My Fisher Paykel DD603I top draw whines when it is first turned


The lid seal on the top drawer is faulty and needs replacement. It might be cut or damaged and is obstructing the drawer from closing. THis also may have caused the flood switch to trip as water can leak if drawer is not sealed.

How to get bottom drawer out of fisher paykel dd6031


I wasn't able to find an exact match to your reported model (DD603I?), but all of the DD60xx models appear to have the same drawer removal process:

Hello, I have a Fisher and Paykel DD603I and both drawers have a red light on the play/pause button and won't stop beeping. Can you please help me with a solution to this problem?


Hello,
It sounds like the dishwasher is in flood mode. You would need to dry up the water in the base pan and test. The link below is a video that explains how to repair your fisher paykel dishwasher.

Hi, I have a Fisher Paykel DD603I (integrated) dishdrawer unit. The bottom drawer soap dispenser has water in it after it runs (and leftover soap), and there is a small amount of water sitting in the...


Hi

Dishwashers use Bi-Metal strip to allow the dispenser to open/close. This strip when heat up causes the soap door spring to open up the dispenser. If this strip is not heated doesn't allow the door to open. The strip may not be getting 120V or maybe disconnected. Newer (plastic liner) dishwashers use a wax motor to open the soap dispenser. The plunger inside the wax motor slowly moves and pushes the plunger and door open. And, if this wax motor doesn't receive 120 volts, then it'll not work. Please check the voltage to the wax motor/Bi-metal strip; also inspect the connections to these. Hope this helps...

How do I remove the bottom drawer of my F & P double drawer dishwasher for mounting into the cabinetry?


I am assuming you have an integrated double drawer unit DD603I.

The instructions for removal and refit of the drawers is available in the Installation Manual. I am able to locate one on the following site

http://www.fisherpaykel.com/admin/pdfs/pdf_installations/526607O_DD_Install_USw.pdf

You may also need instructions to prepare and fit the front panel of the cabinetry to the drawers which you can down load from

The top drawer of my Fisher Paykel two drawer dishwasher will not close all the way. Something appears to be stopping it. How do I fix it?


To find out what might be blocking it, you can remove the drawer. There are two tabs one on each side of the drawer near the bottom front. Push those in and pull the drawer out. You can lift the drawer up and push the slides in to get them out of the way. Then you should be able to see into the cabinet and what if anything is stuck behind the drawer
