Fisher & Paykel Dishwasher Troubleshooting

Fisher & Paykel dishwashers have always been reliable and consistent. Perhaps this is the reason why they have been ranked amongst some of the best dishwashers for years and years. As a New Zealand based company, it is surprising how good of a company Fisher & Paykel is, simply because of the small market that it had to build from. Fisher & Paykel are also the only company to have a dish drawer, which is similar to a dishwasher but in the form of draws. Although Fisher & Paykel dishwashers are reliable, they are bound to have some problems every now and again. Here is a list explaining how to troubleshoot your Fisher & Paykel dishwasher.

Dishes Aren’t Clean After a Cycle

If the dishes aren’t clean after a cycle, the problem could be many different things. First of all, check that you are putting in enough detergent. Putting in to much or to little can be detrimental to the quality of the wash. Also, make sure that the dishes aren’t excessively dirty when you put them in there. A quick rinse never hurt anyone. Make sure that the water inlet valve isn’t dirty. If it is this can seriously damage the quality of the wash.

Dishwasher Won’t Start

If your machine won’t start, the first thing that you must do is make sure that all of the power sources are on. You don’t want to make a big deal out of your dishwasher not starting and then realize that the problem is that there is no power running through the machine. Also, make sure that the door is closed properly and the lock system is off. The machine won’t start unless the lock mode is deactivated.

Dishwasher Won’t Drain

If your Fisher & Paykel dishwasher won’t drain, then the problem most likely has something to do with the drainage hose. Analyze the drainage hose for kinks or damages. It is also important to see if the drain filter isn’t clogged by excess debris, this could be mean that the water can’t get out leading to a build up of water.

Dishwasher Won’t Open

If your Fisher & Paykel dishwasher won’t open, simply check if the child lock function is turned off. If it is turned on it means that no one can get into the dishwasher, so turning it off will make the dishwasher available to use and the doors to open.
