“Expensive, unreliable, bad service”

Written on: 25/03/2014 by timedout (1 review written)

We bought a full set of Fisher and Paykel appliances for our new house and it has been a serious waste of money. The dishwasher has been out of action for three months now waiting for the useless Huby Domestics to get its act in gear. No stock of parts and a big gap where the competence should be. Fisher and Paykel's far distant customer support treats customers with open contempt. All you get is a string of lies but sadly no parts in the UK. The oven, hob, and hood have also had their… Read Full Review

“Big expensive mistake”

Written on: 24/03/2014 by Cambridgemummy (1 review written)

The Fisher and Paykal double drawer dishwasher looks great and dinner party guests are always impressed that you have one but sadly the reality doesn't live up to the hype. Only buy this machine if you're looking for an absorbing new hobby because it will take up most of your free time. It's high maintenance, has to be stripped down and cleaned once a week to 'degrease' it. The dishes are rarely completely clean when a wash cycle is finished, everything is gritty and about half the load has… Read Full Review

I have had my dd fisher for over 8 years love it. All I have had done in that time was 3 motors. The dishwasher is so easy to maintain and clean. Even normal dishwashers can leave grit . Maybe you are using the wrong cycle.

I'm 47 years old, I think I know how to operate a dishwasher thanks very much. You've been through 3 motors? How is that a good thing? I know people who've had the same 'normal' dishwasher for 10 or 15 years without replacing a motor at all. A new motor every couple of years us not acceptable, it speaks volumes about the poor quality of this product and I stand by my comments.

“Best diswasher ever used!”

Written on: 09/07/2013

We wore our last one out after ten years (we run each draw at least once a day - as we cook everyday. Our newest one is even better than the first. The dishes are super clean, and the drawers accommodate even our largest pots - not like the standard dishwasher. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone!… Read Full Review

“My dishes smell!!! Do not buy this product!!!”

Written on: 01/06/2013 by bubbabrown (1 review written)

Water apparently is expected to sit and stagnate in a little catch pan and most likely is splashing up at the dishes. The dishes literally stink like a bacteria has coated them. My husband had to blow out the lines and we tried a rinse with white vinegar but it doesn't take long for the smell to come back. I have tried to dry up that disgusting little catch plan and clean it fresh with soap and water many times but to no avail. The design of this system is a piece of junk as the dirty water… Read Full Review

“Terrible product”

Written on: 11/03/2013

I have had service 3 times on mine that is 5 years old. Now yesterday, on the weekend, the water started running into the washer and would not stop. I had to pay after hours plumber service. Power was cutoff and water was still going into the bottom drawer but not the top. Does not clean dishes well at all. For the cost, I can get a stainless steel tub, not plastic for half the price. Not a good value and not a quality product at all… Read Full Review

“Best dishwasher I've ever had”

Written on: 19/02/2013 by LJRW (1 review written)

I installed one of these dishwashers when replacing my kitchen nearly 5 years ago and I had no problems with it whatsoever. Indeed we chose the dishwasher on the recommendation of a friend, who was also very pleased with her purchase. I loved the flexibility of being able to carry out either a small or a double wash. When I bought it my daughter was a slightly kamikaze toddler and she used to try to sit or climb onto the open door of the standard dishwasher we previously had - this obviously… Read Full Review

“JUNK”

Written on: 08/02/2013 by Sunniekopchick (1 review written)

I have had my unit for 8 months. It does not clean properly, leaves dishes with spots, does not hold an adequate amount of dishes. The bottom drawer is useless. About the only thing that fits in it is small bowls and silverware. It does not even fit a full size cookie sheet. COmpletely upset i spent the money on this unit. This unit is good for a bachelor who uses it once a month, not daily. We are in the process of taking it out and buying a new, reputable dishwasher… Read Full Review

Charliefarley3's Response to Sunniekopchick's Review

Written on: 16/02/2013

Hmmm... It's quite odd that Sunniekopchick says that the lower drawer can only fit small bowls. If that's the case then the top drawer should also only fit small bowls because both drawers are EXACTLY the same size !

I think being oblivious to this most obvious fact casts doubt about the validity of any of the comments made, and indeed the ability of the person to correctly operate the appliance.

“Load of rubbish”

Written on: 09/12/2012

We've had this load of rubbish for 3 years, it has broken down again today. It leaks and breaksdown a couple of times a year. This time we are getting rid, it was expensive and looks good but what a waste of money. Steer clear at all costs. We had an Electrolux for 15 years with no problems at all, we left it behind when we moved house, how I wish we had brought it with us!… Read Full Review

“$2000+ and counting”

Written on: 07/12/2012

We spent $1.4k on our DD603 plus extended warranty plus installation. Then over the past 10 years, spent an additional ~$800 on repairs. Finally, I took over the fixing myself to save cost and keep the wife happy. About two months ago, there was a leak which messed up the main filter board at the bottom. I bought and replaced the board, the top and bottom wiring harness and one of the controllers for $350. Last week, the top lid did not appear to shut properly, there was moisture on the… Read Full Review

“Poor performance”

Written on: 23/10/2012 by moedee (1 review written)

We first purchased a Fisher and Paykel double drawer dishwasher in 2002 with a complete kitchen remodel. It was repaired so many times and required so many replacement parts that the manufacturer finally agreed to replace the unit in 2006 (minus installation cost). Now in 2012 I am having the same issues with this dishwasher. It has been repaired many times and required replacement parts. It has leaked so many times that my wood floor is beginning to warp. I can never trust to turn it on… Read Full Review

Fisher Paykell double drawer dish washer - Great dishwasher when it works. Over 5 years it has broken down at least once every 6/7 months. The service is dreadful from the "approved" service engineers
Broke down again today. Back to Miele for me

“Totally unreliable”

Written on: 04/08/2012 by Lango (1 review written)

I bought this dish washer 4 yrs ago as I loved the idea of separate washes and the very modern look coupled with water efficiency. In the time i've had it it's broken down twice needing board replacements but worse still is the fact that it does not clean at all well! Dishes are often left dirty and it often appears to get blockages. Simply a waste of money… Read Full Review

It constantly breaks down and fault lights flash, it leaks from underneath a lot of the time, doesn't clean very well at all. I am just about to replace it for another make as I am feed up with the problems and the constant maintenance I have to carry out to keep it running!

We have had a single drawer F & P dishwasher (Serial # MSM722154) for about 10 years, and have never had a single problem with it. Our F & P dishwasher thoroughly cleans our dishes, but we have made it a practice of never putting filthy dishes in the dish washer in first place anyway. We always rinse them first. Many of the ads on T.V. show people putting filthy dishes in the dishwasher, and they could well be disappointed when these items do not come out perfectly clean. It would be fair to say these are probably the same people who are disappointed, when they also find their drain is blocked. Something to ponder !! When washing dishes etc by hand, do they put filthy dishes in the sink, in with the dish washing liquid, and then expect them to come out all lovely and clean ? It's expecting too much, plus it is most likely the reason they suffer from a blocked waste pipe. We never put food down the waste pipe/drain anyway, and particularly any fat, as fat will solidify, once it becomes cold down in the waste pipe ! Can't blame the manufacturer if you don't at least make the effort to remove the majority of the food off the item to be washed. In summary, I thoroughly recommend the F & P Dishwasher to anyone contemplating buying a dishwasher.

Not sure what you are trying to imply there, but you have no grounds to base your assumptions. Just for your information the the water leak has nothing to do with the draining.

The percentage of people who have owned one of these who would recommend it is only 28.7% so it seems I am in the majority!

So just to clarify the above statement *AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE*

“Mice have access to clean dishes”

Written on: 10/05/2012 by kbgah (1 review written)

I was horrified to find that mice have access to the inside of the dish drawer through the hot air vent. This is a design fault easily fixed by incorporating a grill over the hot air vent. I should be able to wash the dishes and know that they are clean not find the mouse has been able to get inside the dishwasher and contaminate the dishes for the sake of a simple stainless mesh grill either fixed to or incorporated in the moulded plastic. I actually saw the mouse disappear into the… Read Full Review

I know exactly what you mean, I live in the country as well and recently my dish drawer has that smell of death...I have taken the drawers out searched and cleaned everything,, we ran the machine twice on a heavy wash setting with an approved dishwasher cleaner but I still smell death every time I open my dish drawer. So it has been about a week and I'm doing all my dishes by hand...(mother of 3) does anyone know if a mouse can get into the plastic casing of the drawer??? I haven't taken the front off, maybe it's in there...To make matters worse, last time I had a tech out here they charged me $82.00 and he was only here for 12 minutes (I had the drawer in lock position..oooops) but then I received a call from repair shop telling me they charged me incorrectly and needed to charge me $90.00 for the 60k trip to my house...I asked what the 82.00 was for and was told a country charge up fee of $60.00 and $22.00 for work done (pfft). I can tell you I didn't pay the $90.00 and I was so upset that they called in the first place. We have spent a fortune in that repair shop over the years (washing machines, dishwashers as we own a couple of properties) BAD ALL AROUND!!!

Bought this product and have had nothing but problems with it. Apart from the fact that it doesn't clean as well as cheaper makes I have had previously, it has broken down 3 times!! The breakdown is the same problem everytime and very expensive to fix. I could just about deal with the useless product IF the customer support was good but, unfortunately it is even worse than the product. Very unhelpful, basically got told the last time I spoke to them that I should be aware that these days things… Read Full Review
