First - thanks for the great posts on the F1 error and manuals I've found. Using this site, I have just successfully (or not) replaced the link supports on both the bottom and top dish drawers along with the fried/flooded filter board of my 7 year old Fisher Paykel DD603.

That said, I still have problems! The top drawer does not seem to want to slide in and out all that easily and has leaked once or twice since I repaired things. I've checked that the drawer is snapped in straight. Do the rails need lubing ever?

Second, it is clear from the sickly, coughing sounds that I need to replace the lid actuator on the bottom drawer - despite replacing the filter board, it doesn't want to come down in a healthy way. Since I plan to go there/replace are there any other repairs I might as well make once I have everything disassembled since I have an old model that I gather has sub par parts in the first place? I'm thinking of replacing the top drawer actuator just 'cause?

Last - it sure seems like this frickin' thing has gotten noisier recently (before I put my amateur hands on it/before F1 fault) - louder water sloshing, occasional knocking sounds. Any thoughts?

Thanks so much for the advice!

I concur with J5... Use the 528112 (upper) and 528113 (lower) lid motor sets. They come in a set. Replace both and you will be a happy camper. The new design ones are far superior to the old white box motors. Just make sure they snap into the rail even and flat, otherwise the plastic "t" can snap off after a few uses.

Thanks for advice on the motors. Any advice on the sticky top drawer sliding? Should I lube the rails or could something be jamming that I don't know about?

It is usually all related... when the lid motors arent lifting the lid all the way up, the drawer rubs on the gasket. Once the lid motors are replaced, the drawer should stop rubbing.

Unless the rails are rusted... then.... well... Lets just hope not. Rails suck to replace because you have to replace the front plastic ring as well as the rails... YUCK in the 1st degree.
