Fisher & Paykel DD605 - high pitched whining noise

7 posts in this topic

My DD605 top drawer makes a high pitched noise during drain mode. Seems to drain fine and the rest of the program works fine too. Just this awful intermittent whining noise in drain mode. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated

Rotor. Provide the 5 digit - 1 Alpha Product code for the part number.

Don't use the machine again until you figure out if the pump is bad or is there something stuck in it. What would concern me however, is if the pump locks up all together, and it predates an in line fuse installation on one leg of the feed to pump, you will quite possibly take out your main control with the excessive current draw from a pump with a locked rotor. Happens often.

Just push the machine back. Locate pump and depress the release and twist I believe a 1/4 of a turn and the pump falls out. A $120.00 pump is affordable but if the control pops you just spent a least another $200.00

remove the rotor and check for any debris

 

check the rotor for delamination or seperation of the rotor

 

check the bottom one as well

check the 3 locating legs sometimes they bend in and run and make noise

 

if it looks ok put it in the bottom and test as they sometime will be noisy in 1 drawer and not the other

 

part is 524285p

I'm sorry. I thought this was a clothes washer. My bad. Sorry for any confusion.

Thanks for the help Guys. Was out of town for a while hence the late reply.

I tried the rotor from the bottom drawer as suggested and put it in the top (this is one of the best things about having a Dish Drawer Dishwasher, you get to swap parts around and always keep at least one running). All good now. Just need to order a new rotor.
