Hi all,

 

Just moved in to a place with the Fisher and Paykel DS602 single drawer dishwasher. After reading the owner manual, it is stated that "you may notice a delay after the Start / Pause button has been pressed. During this time the lid seal will be inflating." However I am not sure if the delay on mine is "normal". How long should it take for the lid seal to inflate? 

 

Should the lid seal should only take a few seconds to deflate when pausing the drawer mid cycle?

 

Cheers

At the beginning of each wash cycle, the lid seal inflates while the pre drain cycle removes
any residue water from the tub. This runs for approximately 60 seconds, then the tub fills.

 

At the end of the dishwasher programme, or a pause in the programme, an exhaust valve
releases the air pressure from the bellows section gasket. This deflates the seal and
unlocks the tub and drawer.

So does that mean it will take 60 seconds to inflate?

Yes. That is the information straight from the manual.

Although the actual lid seal inflation process may not require 60 seconds, the entire pre-wash process is 60 seconds long. If it's taking much longer than that, then the inflatable lid seal may have a leak. 

 

You can place the control into diagnostic mode and separately inflate the lid seal to check for leaks. The service manual has the procedure: http://appliantology...-service-parts/

My question is, Why are you timing it? Run the dishwasher if it doesn't leak it's fine. You may be looking for a problem when there isn't one.

"Suds are not good"
"They write directions for a reason"
"Make sure you're using it right before you say it's not working correctly"

Thanks all for the info. You're right there, if all is good why question it. It's just that I've never experienced using this type of dishwasher before and as it is different in both form and function, there are certain things that I am questioning about its method of operation.
