I would suggest you never buy one
Worse applicable I have ever bought. Just wets dishes. Have tried rinsing before. Every wash has dirty dishes. Features and controls are easy and size convenience is good. This was the result showing dirty dishes at end of wash.

Design Flaw allows Cockroaches to enter into the washer
I can understand cockroaches congregate under and around a dishwasher but never inside the washer. A stand alone washer does not have this problem. The drawer dishwashers must have a design flaw to allow cockroaches to enter the washer.
I am not the only one who has suffered this. It will be a lifelong problem. I have no other cockroach infestation in the whole of my home. It is pristine.
I was waiting on the phone for over 1 1/2 hours and finally got a human and she hung up on me. They wanted me to get a pest man in and then their service m...

Waited 3 weeks for my new dish drawer to arrive to replace my 11 year old fisher paykel draw, (which was the best thing I'd ever owned until it started to leak) Had it professionally installed on the Friday to make sure everything was done correctly & didn't get to use it until Sunday. Went to empty it after the load was done & noticed the tablet hadn't dissolved properly & the dishes felt slimy, so had to run it again on a longer cycle. Put it on again on Tuesday on the longer cycle straight up and realised it was taking a long time. It now ha...s an F1 error with rinse flashing and it's a major malfunction as when you open the drawer and turn on the main power it's trying to work with the drawer open. This dishdrawer has been used once!! Am now waiting for a tech to come & check my brand new dishwasher. Not happy at all!!

Trouble from day one
We have 3 of these and would not reccommend you buy one. To load a whole load of dishes in and have to unload them dirty is unacceptable. Don't buy

Inscrutable psychopathic machine which won't stop running long cycles completely unbidden
Every time I interact even vaguely with this thing, it ends up locking itself and running a cycle that goes for hours during which it will not stop, be turned off or allow itself to be opened, even if I was just putting in a single glass. Lack of buttons and display on the front means there is nothing to try beyond this fictitious idea that knocking twice on the front panel will pause it. I am so sick of listening to it start up, knowing I will be hearing it for ages, and it is wasting water and adding to my energy bill for absolutely no reason.... I am not tech illiterate, I have read the manual (difficult to locate, since at first it seems to be for other models) and I still cannot stop this thing from running EVERY single time I open and close it (I am not wildly pressing different buttons when I do this). Once again a 'simple' interface actually makes everything more difficult.
Absolute waste of time and money.
This machine is a total disaster and total waste of money. If I put plastic lids on the cup racks, they fall off down the sides and into the wash arm, in the bottom of the dishwasher, and cause the entire wash to fail. The smallest things seem to deem the wash useless. Dishes can't even be close to each-other, let alone touching. I can only ever put three dishes in the washer otherwise they definitely don't come up clean and even then often two of the three still have to be handwashed. Totally useless and very maddening!!! A bowl stops the wat...er from reaching half of the machine. I got a technician to come and have a look as I was sure it had been installed incorrectly or there was a fault with the machine. There was nothing wrong, it just doesn't work! He told me to only ever use the 'Heavy' wash. I only ever use this wash now and it still does not work!! What a nightmare to have a new, expensive dishwasher that doesn't work. I sincerely hope this machine has been taken off the market because I can only assume there is a fault with it.

I had to replace my old single F&P DishDrawer which finally stopped working after approx 13 years. It had been a great workhorse, very reliable, and rarely had a hiccup or needed service. This replacement has not lived up to our expectations. The set-up of the dishwasher has changed - for the worse, so it isn't possible to fit anywhere near as much inside. If I put plastic lids on the cup r...

Faulty Product within 12 months. Still waiting for Warranty Service for almost 2 months. Little Response.
Absolute dismal service. Had a less than 12 month dishwasher drawer (DD60SCW9)that stopped working. Took a while for a technician to come out in December 2019. No contact from Fisher and Paykel's technician. Dishwasher still not working as of today (Mid February 2020). Have been trying to get a response from Fisher and Paykel to what is happening without success. On 10 January we were advised they were waiting on a part that was going to be received the following week. We have tried numerous times calling and emailing. No email replies by Fishe...r and Paykel. Been on hold for up to 40 minutes several times, but when I do get through I either get disconnected, or told they will investigate with Parts, and then never hear from them. I am reluctant to buy any Fisher and Paykel products in future. Had issues within 30 days with our front loading washing machine too. After sale service is appalling.
The worst possible review
It is a very poor performer and after having used many dishwashers I regard this as very bad indeed. The instruction guide was hopeless it was hard to read and useless. Dont buy the rubbish!
Purchased in October 2017 at Purchased with the home for $400.00.
I purchased this product nearly a year and a half ago and I am more than impressed with its looks and performance.
I chose the 900mm Dishdrawer as it was the only one that was going to fit perfectly into the space I had without having to re-design my kitchen, which I am so glad I did.
It fits a lot more in than I thought it would and I have never had an issue with the dishes not cleaning properly even though I don't rinse them before putting them in.
I love the fact that you don't have to bend down to fill and empty the dishwasher.

Our old one was better
The clips on the racks come off and are VERY hard to put back together.
The spinner is always being stopped because the racks seem too close.
The sloping plate racks make loading difficult.

This dish washer is great for a small family as you can just load one draw and wash those dishes. It always gets the dishes lean and dry and is simple to use and reasonably quiet on all settings. The only negative is it takes a bit longer to install. I would definitely recommend this product.

Don't buy a dishdrawer
Worst purchase when I renovated the kitchen last year. I have to inspect every dish and every piece of cutlery that comes out - there is ALWAYS something that is dirty. I am getting so frustrated with it. Hate hate hate it. Do not buy one. What's the point of using a dishwasher if you have to examine everything that's in it every time you empty it. So disappointed and so pissed off.
Our dishdrawers have been in for 6 months now and haven't skipped a beat. I have preset my top drawer for dishes and bottom drawer for pots and pans which my dishwasher knows without me pressing a button. I have a bit of OCD when it comes to dishwashers and do give everything a light rinse, however it probably doesn't need it. I did find that using either Morning Fresh or Finish powder that there is a gross buildup in the bottom of the drawers and my glasswear is cloudy, but my machine seems to LOVE a little of the $3 Coles powder and rinse aid for a sparkling & dry wash everytime.
Fisher and Paykel crap
I have had 3 technicians out and charged 362.00 which will not be refunded. The developers have been silent on who installed the dishwasher. I’m over it I have asked f&p to collect the piece of junk. It just doesn’t work and I’m sick of the backwards and forwards. I paid a lot of money for my unit and I get this junk.
WORKS WELL BUT IS VERY NOISY
I am happy with the dishwasher and also love that it has some many cycles to choose from the eco cycle is just under 40 minutes and I can get everything clean, however, it is quite unpleasant that the dishwasher is so noisy and cannot hear the TV and need to increase the volume. Other than the noise the dishwasher worked well.

Great small machine with eco options
Having decided to get a small dishwasher in my own place having stayed in a couple of airbnb places recently, this is the quietest machine I have used. With Quick cycle, with eco options, that still clean and dry immaculately it gives me all I was looking for. We are a couple only who use it every day and it suits our needs perfectly. Top that off with running it early in the day with or solar inputs and it is more than efficient for us.
Ideal for a compact kitchen
I have used Fisher and Paykel for close to 4 years now.. work well, based on the load,you can choose different load options.needs a bit of clean every month,for which i use a cleaner and run it for a full cycle.Its a bit small for a big kitchen but works well with a small family
Questions & Answers
Does 00 stay displayed after was is finished?
If as you say the listing is monitored by Fisher & Paykel representatives, perhaps they may answer! Although I doubt it, as I didn't ever receive a reply to my letters to this lot... Sorry Maria, while I don't quite understand your question I can understand your frustration, as their instruction books are a disgusting mess. Can I say I have received a lot of help from a mechanic from a supplier here in Melbourne Australia. But this would only help if you are living in this region! One thing I can say, other than sorry! Never make the same mistake twice and tell your friends and family, these people treat their customers very poorly.
