Customer Question

I have a two drawer fisher paykel dishwasher. Model number is XXXXX The top drawer will not turn on. It has power on the inside so I can choose my type of cycle however when it is the blue light will not go on, no beeping and I cannot start it. I have tried to hold two buttons down at one time and nothing is working. The bottom is just fine. What else can I do??

Hi. I'm Smitty. I am a professional appliance repair consultant here to help you diagnose, and repair, your appliance.

Ok lets see if there are any error codes stored in the units memory.

Please do the folowing and let me know what you come up with.

Thank you.


Press and hold Keylock, then Start/Pause for 5 seconds

All LEDs & LCD segments except Keylock are illuminated

Press Start / Pause

This initiates Pen upload via lower tub-home light pipe. At the same time the current and then the previous fault code will be displayed in the LCD screen & on the secondary control panel LEDs. To read the fault code on the secondary display refer to Section 7.1 on Fault Codes.

Press Keylock

This will clear current fault code. Note if you press Keylock again you will remove the previous fault

Press Power

To exit
