Can I give it a minus rating?!

Summary: We paid a premium price for what we thought was an awesome design with the two drawers, and the quietness. WRONG! The dishwasher does a wonderful job of cleaning your dishes, and draining properly, IF AND ONLY IF, you are willing to disassemble the drainer, and inside pieces to thoroughly clean them every other time you use the dishwasher. No joke. There is no grinder or disposal, and the little screen clogs up with anything and everything.
Summary: Update: I purchased this dishwasher about a year ago and no issues so far. 3/14/14 I didn't buy from Amazon, and I bought an extra warranty due to some of the reviews I've seen. A drawer style dishwasher was my only option due to a design flaw in the kitchen. Purchased March 2013, so far no issues with the dishwasher. I like being able to save water and only run a single drawer at a time, but have the option of running both when needed.
DO NOT BUY, has handles that break, alot reliability issues especially after the warranty expires..

Summary: We owned our first Fisher & Paykel about 8 years ago and loved it, no real problems at all. It had handles that curved out from the drawers and the unit worked excellent. Then 3 years ago we bought this model and both handles have cracked (after warranty expired) so with some convincing F&P paid for the parts and we paid the labor of $120 but after one year the handles are breaking again.
Horrible Company - They do not stand behind their products.

Summary: Be careful buying a Fisher-Paykel product. They're great when they are working, but you are in for a nightmare if something goes wrong under warranty or need service. They are a horrible company at standing behind their products. I know from personnal experience and will never buy another one.
Summary: We have this machine at our main and lake homes. We just sold our main home and remodeling a kitchen in new place with all new appliances. We are definitely buying one. It is quiet and does a good job. Read about stainless ring in base getting dirty?? We rinse food off our plates before putting in dishwasher so never a problem. Most of the time just my wife and I so we like using top drawer and not waiting a few days to run. Meets my needs!
Summary: I have a Fisher & Paykel DD603 two drawer dishwasher. Pros; It's very quiet when operating. The top drawer gets used most because no bending. External cosmetics are good. Easy to disassemble components to clean. Cons; Large plates don't fit. The effect of oversize plates is to prevent to top from sealing during operation which allows water to flood the circuitry in the base. Bottom drawer is smaller than the top drawer, meaning fewer/smaller articles can be washed.
Summary: The concept of two drawers is good but; The rack configuration is poor. The compartment space is very small. We’ve had 3 warranty issues, wont drain etc. Cheap feel to drawer and other working components.
Summary: Fisher & Paykel is a foreign company, who once has your money, simply does not care. I bought our unit right at 2 years ago and have had service calls at least 6 times! After the unit flooded our floor for the 3rd time, I contacted the manufacturer asking for either a refund, or a trade for a "traditional" dishwasher that actually works.
Summary: I was very excited to see that this was in the new home we bought, I have wanted to have the drawers as they seem as if they would be convienient...they are. I love the fact that I can run a small load at any time. My dishes are always clean and dry and I love how quiet it is.
Summary: I have an older FP double drawer dishwasher that was purchased when they were first introduced. Couldn't wait to get a double drawer dishwasher. Well, within 2 months I couldn't wait to get rid of it. An hour and a half wash cycle? You've got to be kidding. And very limited room for glassware, not to mention NO cal rod coil to heat the water enough to sanitize or totally dry the dishware and glassware.
