Fisher and Paykel Dish Drawer leaking (new)

tabcomAugust 13, 2014

Hi all. I have been searching the net for a definitive answer to my Dish Drawer problem Model 603. I recently had the dreaded F1 flood message and followed all instructions for drying and clearing the fault. All went well until we tried to use it again. All seemed well for a minute or two. Same message! Nothing in the washer at the time but when we opened the drawer water appeared to be leaking from the bottom wiring cover. (Clear smoky plastic) Are there seals in the pump assembly etc that need attending to. A lot of posts allude to cracked water lines. Is this a really common problem within the housing structure. I haven't pulled this cover off yet to investigate but water can be seen in the bottom of it until all water in the bowl has been drained. Any thoughts on this matter?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

There are some seals involved. They don't need recurring maintenance but of course a failure can occur. The heating element/pump/motor assembly mounts into an opening in the bottom of the drawer/tub, which of course has a seal around the circumference. The drain hose connects to a fitting at bottom of the pump/motor, under the motor cover.
