Fisher Paykel dishwasher troubleshooting

Any dishwasher will eventually break down. Fortunately, most of the malfunctions that can occur during its operation can be fixed independently, without professional help. In most cases, they are associated with the wear and tear of the main parts and mechanisms, as well as with the consequences of an incorrect operating mode. Check the table with the main malfunctions and repair methods. This will keep you from unnecessary costs for service center repair and from washing dishes by hand due to long-term downtime of the equipment.
