Hello. We have a fisher Paykel DD24DCX7-88637 dishwasher. My wife had it throw an E-5 error code then it all went off and the top drawer started blinking off and on. Also the top drawer door lock will not release. I tried the reset procedure in the manual to no avail. I am guessing the control board might have gotten wet but I need to open the drawer to pull boards out.

Thanks much

Hi,

Read posts 6, 7, and 8 here: FIXED: Fisher & Paykel dish drawer

They mention turning the breaker off to the dishwasher, then turning it back on again and it will open.

Let us know how it goes.

Ye I have tried that. It was in the middle of a cycle when it started throwing errors so I suspect a control board error. Do these have a single board or are the drawers independent?

I don't know, I've never had training on Fisher & Paykel products.

Hopefully another tech. that has had training on these, and has seen this problem can shed some light on what the cause is and the fix.

Other than that you'd need to have Fisher & Paykel come out to see what's going on.
