I have a Fisher Paykel DD603 and only the top drawer does not drain.  Rotor is fairly new.  I have the integrated model so there is no digital display.  When I place the top drawer into diagnostic mode, I can pump out all of the water but when it runs the cycle about 1/2" remains and the dishes are not cleaning.  I have replaced the hose to the top drawer along with the flap valve so I know there is no obstruction.  I have cleaned all of the inside so there is no inside obstruction.

 

Also, when it runs a cycle it seems like the arm will turn for only a few seconds and then turn off.  It does this several times and then eventually it seems to run normally.

 

Could all of this be related to the control board.   I have not yet switched the board for the bottom drawer with top drawer to see if this will make a difference.

 

This is driving me crazy. I would appreciate any help.

 

Steve

You could try swapping the rotor with the lower drawer to test, often the upper drawer gets used much more than lower and thus greater wear. Also check the Y connector that gangs the 2 drain hoses into house drain, could be sagging and partially blocked if not secured well.

Sometimes the stator gets loose and won't read the rotor well. You can flip the drawer upside down, take off the plastic shield and the 6 plastic posts that are there, on the stator, wedge them out with a screwdriver. That will tighten down and you should have no play in the stator. housing

check the housing that the rotor sits in,l there is an island in there called the land and it is often damaged and wont drain out despite doing so on diagnostics as diagnostic drain speed is faster

 

 

Also, when it runs a cycle it seems like the arm will turn for only a few seconds and then turn off.  It does this several times and then eventually it seems to run normally.

 

 

i believe it is prob filling too quickly , try turning the tap pressure right down and if this fixes it then replace the inlet valve
