Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

Can you please explain what you mean by the drawer won't lock and water all over?

Also, can you open the drawer and look in the lower left corner and there should be a sticker on the frame of the dishwasher with a model number. Can I get that model number?

start the dishwasher and the door doesn,t lock. It opens easily and water is leaking model dd6

There should be 2 more numbers after the DD6. Are they 03, 02, 01?

looks like 3

Ok and is this a double drawer or just single?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.


Ok perfect, so this is the most common version that Fisher and Paykel made. That being said, your actuator motors have failed and need to be replaced because the lid is not pulling down to lock the drawer shut which causes water to fly out everywhere. You'll need to unplug the dishwasher, remove the bottom drawer and soak up all the water. Leave the dishwasher unplugged until you replace the actuators. The actuators that left the lids up in both drawers have been re-designed 3 times so they should be replaced for both the upper and lower drawer. The part numbers are 528113 and 528112. They cost about $100-110 each and they are not easy to replace so you may need a technician to replace these parts for you.

Below is a link to a step by step tutorial on how to replace the actuators.
