Hello. I'm brand new to this board, and yesterday our Fisher & Paykel dishwasher DD602 began giving us the fault code F2. Which is a problem with the Rotor Motor. I began tinkering with it, but just cant get the rotor motor out, which I thought would be accessable from the tub. Can anyone please help me? Thanks in advance.

A locking ring holds the big round filter in the bottom of the tub, turn this ring anti-clockwise to release, then remove the filter.  Do the same with the rotor, turn the top section of the rotor that the big filter ring clipped into, anti-clockwise until it stops and then take it out of the sump.

So poppajon...

what did you do with the Rotor Motor once you got it out.

I also have the F2 error. I got the rotor motor out no worries, but i cant seem to find anywhere (online) to source a new one or at least see how much one is gonna set me back?

actually, for some reason, it just got jamed. i re set it in and it worked... but now i have another problem. its wont drain during the first cycle and turns into a tub of water 3-4 inches. then when the flood switch gets triggered, it emergency sucks down all the water. the drain works during the rinse cycle, but not during the first wash cycle of a normal wash. anyone have any ideas?

There will be some damage to the motor caused by the blockage.  You will need to take out the motor and trim the damage off with a sharp knife:samurai:.  Also check the sump and clear any obvious damage.

The holes in the filter are too large :yikes:and let shards off cups and plates, go straight through and chew the bottom the motor.

Can you walk me through this?  You mean the motor under the plastic cover panel on the underside of the tub?  How do you take this out, and where should i trim the damage off of? Thanks for your help.

No, I mean the motor inside the tub that pushes the water through the spray arm:cool:,  the bit with the propellor on it.  There will be damage on the bottom of this.

there dosent appear to be any. it seems to be fine. i even shop vac ed out that hole and could feel the air flow on the other side where it drains, so there no obstruction. any other ideas on why it would be filling up with water during the first wash cycle?

I have a 2 drawer fisher and paykel.... i ended up taking the rotor out of the top drawer where i was having the f2 error, and also removing the rotor from the bottom drawer.

I cleaned them both but there was no obvious damage that needed trimming. There was little metal filings and glass shards around the top one but that was all.

If i put the top rotor back in the top drawer I still got the F2 error. But i found that if I just swapped them over everything worked like new again. Go figure!

I think more than anything the fact that I took everything apart and cleaned it out thoroughly was the real solution.

Thanks guys

i may try to put the rotor from the working bottom drawer into the top one, just to see if that has anything to do with it.  if it does, i guess we'll just buy a new rotor.
