Perfect dishwasher for 2 people
I absolutely love this dishwasher. Its so quiet that I can't tell that it is on unti I place my ear against the door! And it cleans dishes so well to. The single drawer is just the perfect size for my husband and I. At last we can wash dishes each night rather than having to wait a few days for a full load (yuck!!)
Wouldn't buy any other type
I have owned several Dish Drawers now - put them in several properties including work venues and have never had any problems with them. I love their ergonomics - it is so much easier than a front loader and takes up much less space. You don't use them / load them the same way as a front loader so there is a very small learning curve (so guests don't load it) but I find them fantastic.
I know people who bought a very early model and had problems with the seals - but I repeat, I have never had ANY problems with them.
1 note and only a ver...y small one - I only buy the top drawer single now - I don't like having a bottom drawer (it is awkward having it under the main one) and a single drawer is plenty big enough for an active family of 4-5. If you really need more than one, you can always put 2 top drawers side by side and leave the space under as pot drawers.
Great. Love it.
My F&P dishdrawer is 2 1/2 years old. It cleans really well - I have swapped out of Finish and only use the Morning Fresh gel or Liquid caps and am really pleased with the results. I highly recommend you swap out if you're still using Finish. If you decide to give the gel a try be careful to only 1/2 fill the detergent container otherwise it won't wash properly. My F&P is really convenient - being able to run the drawers separately leaves less likelihood of unwashed dishes sitting on the kitchen top. I have a small apartment and the kitchen is ...very visible so I like to try & keep it tidy. The F&P has been reliable with the exception of two times when he computer seemed to get confused and I couldn't turn one of the drawers on. The problem was easily solved by switching it off at the power which seemed to reset the computer and everything was fine. The dishwasher is quiet enough to run at night, which is a relief because I always need to run it after dinner. Lately I've been getting some residue (quite typical of every dishwasher I've had previously) in the tops of upturned mugs, etc. so are looking for hints as to how to clean it out as I suspect that's what's causing the problem. I am very happy and most likely would buy another F&P dish drawer if I were renovating again.

Fisher & Paykel ripped me off $1000
My F&P dishdraw broke down after 3 years - repairer said $950 to fix - too expensive to fix AND it cost $94 just to tell me that quote, and he did not bother with a written quote either, even though I asked for one several times PLUS he kept unit. – “Northapp Appliance Repairs Tamworth” (it most likely just needed a new Rotor, the dishonesty amongst business is absolutely disgraceful)
Purchase the after warranty care for this - for as many years as you can get,
BUT I was later told by F&P - you have to run the hose higher than the uni...t then the exit end has to be lower than the unit , and that, that is why it broke after only 3 yrs.(still don't believe them, just needed a new rotor) I have used a different F&P model in the past - had no problems, so I really do recommend these F&P dishdraws, they save me hours and hours of washing up time, and I run mine at least 3 times every day, basically they are brilliant. oh, and serviceman will charge $250 to unblock, but is super easy to do yourself
Very happy with my choice, single tall dishwasher
I live alone in average size unit. Chose the single drawer deep F&P Dishwasher and am very happy with it. I had it integrated so sits nicely under the bench behind the cupboard door. I have been using the dishwasher for about 3 months. It is super quiet, can't always tell if it is finished it is so quiet. I do a quick rinse prior to putting dishes in dw but have tried not rinsing and the result is the same. No water stains or dirt on dishes at finish of wash. Would fully recommend the model of Fisher & Paykel dishwasher I chose.
Questions & Answers
My machine keeps switching itself on and I can’t turn it off; the lights are flashing and when I close the door it starts the cycle. 3 short beeps then a long 4th one.
My tall single DishDrawer does not appear to have legs supplied in the package but has the leg mountings underneath
Hi Bob K,
I don't think you are missing anything. The double drawers sit on the floor and are fixed to the cabinet sides and have feet. The single tall drawer just fixes to the sides of the cabinet.
I suspect that the bottom of the metal shell is the same for both models.
A copy of the installation instructions is at
Hope this helps.
