Dishwasher not starting. Model DD24S17

Our Fisher Paycol dishwasher is on and loaded. The lights are on the settings are good. We press the buttons and shut the drawer it thinks for a few seconds then beeps twice and does nothing. We have tried the resets found on the internet. Checked the door seals all clean and good. Checked the pump and water filter. Turned off the power for 5 min and retried. It has power and lights. Any ideas would help. We have a bad week. Toilet seals went and no parts available. Washing machine belts all died. Working on replacements. Hopefully there is a fix here. Thanks

Has it been sitting without use for a long time? Havenít had it happen in the coach but have needed to ďprimeĒ our dishwasher at the S&B after a long dry period. Couple cups of water in the bottom and it started to run. But first Iíd try a 12 volt reset just in case. Thatís cured a lot of apparently unrelated stuff over the years.

Sorry to hear of your problems. Sometimes, it DOES seem that everything is breaking and not working correctly. It passes and you tackle the problems one problem at a time.

Tell me a little bit more. Is the coach new to you? Are you still learning how to run the Fisher-Paykel or have you been running it just fine for a long time?

I found the operation of my Fisher-Paykel dishwasher on my 2015 Anthem to be more problemmatic than I would have guessed. Both my wife and I have college degrees (reading manuals is not a problem), but we really struggled with the proper operation of our Fisher - Paykel. We also found that the owners manual included in the coach was almost incomprehensible. There were times we pressed the button incorrectly or too slowly or too fast and really screwed up the dishwasher's operation. Now this is probably 6 years ago, but I believe that I unplugged the dishwasher from the wall receptacle behind the large center drawer in the kitchen and let it sit for a good deal of time (at least 30minuters). I was told that you have to let all the capacitors discharge and the dishwasher electronics to go completely dead. We then plugged it back into the wall and it had reset itself. Now to be clear, I think that Dee or I just screwed up starting the dishwasher and then once we pressed buttons out of order or in the wrong sequence, it made the board not respond.

Eventually, after a year or so, we did have a serious problem with the Fisher-Paykel and the control board actually did go bad. We had to have a Fisher-Paykel repairman come to the coach twice and work on it. Finally, it was replaced under warranty.

I tried to work with Fisher-Paykel customer service, but the call was answered in New Zealand, and I hate to admit it, but there was such a difficulty in communicating in USA English versus New Zealand English that we made little or no progress. However, Fisher-Paykel is a fairly popular brand in new homes with very modern kitchens and we had little trouble finding factory trained F-P service people. One thing they could easily do was give us a list of F-P service companies where we happened to be and how to contact them.

Turn the breaker off for about 5 minutes and then turn back on. Go to the last cycle and try to run that it clear out anything with the dish drawer. If that doesnít work, it will need to be looked at further.

Okay thanks for the ideas. Had the coach for years. We shut down the breaker for a long time and pulled the plug. So far it still just pretends it is going to work as we can change the settings then when we close the drawer it just makes 2 beeps like NO NO..... I can not lock the door for travel either as it just does the 2 beeps and laughs at me. It appears that the door lock not engaging is the Grrrrr. Oh well thanks again.

Had the exact same experience on my 14. We did everything you described. I was at Entegra and they did as well. They called Mister Appliance and we gave up for the day with the circuit breaker turned off overnight. When Mister Appliance showed up in the morning it worked perfect. Never had another problem for the remainder of our ownership.

I was getting the two beep thing in my 14 when the battery in the remote was getting weak.
Later...

The Quick Start Guide contains this statement:

If the power to the dishwasher is disconnected, the drawer will remain locked.

The way that statement is worded, "the drawer will remain locked" may suggest that removing power will lock the drawer. I'm not sure. However, it might be worth trying that in order to lock the drawer closed for travel.

Take care,
Stu

The long wait for it to completely discharge the circuits on the circuit board was explained to me as very important. Try Chuck's overnight.

And I drove many hundreds of miles with the dishwasher drawer held in by fastening a rope to the sink faucet and running it down through the handle and then maybe to the lower right edge of the kitchen cabinet and and then maybe back up to rear right corner of the cabinet hooked around the point of the Corian or granite or whatever it was. It took some creativity to find anchor points that would hold the drawer closed and not banging the bathroom wall when making right turns.

But in the final analysis, the whole dishwasher had to be replaced.

Suzzy, sorry to hear this and about the washing machine. Seems when one thing goes out, they all start to do so. I'm back in Florida at Myakka River motorcoach resort for the month of May. If you and Bob are still on the FL east coast, think about swinging around here before you head north! Would love to see y'all. How's Bob's new lithium batteries doing? Miss you.

We are back in TX now leaving Fri to head toward Indiana Entegra Homecoming party. We will check out your new FL home next year. Hope to see you before then. The new batteries are okay. Keep in touch. Hugs
