In Topic: Fisher & Paykel DD605 DishDrawer not finishing cycle

Yesterday, 02:49 AM

stuck on rinse cycle ?


rinse light is a fault of F1 meaning flood fault


you prob have a partial blockage of the drain hose


i find a lot block where the drain hose exits the cabinet down the bottom and does a 90 degree turn


success i have had from pulling the hose buck into the cabinet and straightening the bend and back flushing the drain hose using water and crap flows back , i disconnect the drain hose from the tub and use an old inlet hose connected to the tap and backflush into a bucket and most times cfrap comes out


by pulling the hose back into the cabinet you can also confirm there is no kinks , which is what i found on a job the other day on a fairly new machine

In Topic: Aquasmart WL80T65CW1 how to clean pump ?

12 September 2014 - 01:26 AM

I always do it from underneath the machine. Works great. Very simple. Never had one of those pumps fail either.


changed plenty of them


the early control board would blow the fuse on the board for the pump circuit if the pump was blocked up with crap


the later boards afaik have a  self resetting fuse on the board


as mentioned you can remove the bowl and go from the top or remove the pump from the bottom


the pumps will also sieze if not used for a period if time and when you put a new board in you  can test the pump in diagnostics

and its very easy to tell if its blocked or siezed from the noise it makes if you are familiar with what they normally sound like


removing the bowl is better since you can find if there is any other things in there and also clean the inner and outer bowl while you are there


for new players beware the outside of the inner bowl is sharp when they punnch the holes through from the inside


have never needed to replace the oring if you remove the pump from the bottom


remove the pump cap taking note of the way it comes off as it wont work if you put it back on the other way

clean the divertor flap and there is also a small hole just near the flapper to ensure its not blocked with lint or sludge


i find it easy to clean the outer bowl by taking off the cold hose from the back

running the pump in diagnostics pumping out

using a scrubbing brush and the cold hose you can scrub and hose down while the pump runs pumping all the crap out
