Frigidaire Dishwasher Hi, I have installed a new model GLD2250RDC0 Frigidaire dishwasher and it will not start. Power and water supply is connected. When I push the cycle button for Normal the light comes on but when I push Start nothing happens except the "hi-temp wash" and "no heat dry" lights flash. I assume this is some kind of troubleshooting code but the manual does not cover this and I am in Honduras so service is non existent. Any ideas? By the way, I was a builder in the States for 25 y

Frigidaire Dishwasher won't start (lights cycle but no water/motor) Model Number: FDB1050REB2 Brand: Frigidaire Our dishwasher is 1.25 years old and already not working (grrr!). When it is turned on, the lights cycle through like a normal wash cycle, but the motor isn't engaged nor does any water cycle through. This happened about a month ago and I took everything apart to make sure all of the connections were secure and it started working again...not this time. Any ideas?

My Bosch dishwasher stopped the other day for no reason, the bottom still has water in it, I just tried to start a full wash again and all that happens is the red light below the brush symbol lights up, then after a couple of minutes the red light below the tap symbol lights up, also the red light below the drying symbol is also lit, but nothing happens after that?

I have a maytag dishwasher mdb5601awb. when I hit the start button nothing happens. I have found the instructions to do a manual test which is hitting the heated dry button 5 times and then the start button. Thinking it will run some test which I have no idea what to look for, it actually runs the machine's wash cycles and clean, dries and tells me it clean with the green light goes on. How do I reset/reboot the machine so it starts by just hitting the start button again?

I have a new FDB520RHS2A Frigidaire dishwasher which remains in the wash cycle after I've started it. It sounds as if it is changing cycles but the wash light stays lit and never switches to rinse. The machine continues to run for hours if I don't stop it. We've checked the drain to the garbage disposal and it is clear. the water temp seems to be hot enough but how do I check that? Any ideas on what we should check before we bring it back to the store? Your help is much appreciated. Thanks!

Cycle interrruption Recently, about 20 minutes into the wash cycle, the unit shuts down and the lights start blinking - usually "Pots & Pans" & "Quick Rinse" simultaneously. No other buttons respond and I cannot get it to finish the cycle. Only shutting down the unit at the fuse box eliminates the lights. I've checked for blockages and nothing found. Manual does not offer any help or suggestions. Any ideas??

The three lights for Pots & Pans, Normal Wash, Econo Wash are all flashing. When I hold the start button down for four seconds, just the Normal light is on. However, once I close the door, all three lights are on again, and the dishwasher does not start. We have tried unpugging it and then plugging it in again. It worked once then went back to all three light flashing. Before this, only the Normal Wash and Econo Wash lights were flashing.
