Frigidaire dishwasher dirty & sticks in cycle

\015 My frigidaire mod # FDB658RAC1 top sprayer arm does not apear to ever get water during any cycles glasses always have dirt on them and machine will stick in one cycle often. Thanks in advance Brady.\015

Answers :

First, check the holes on the upper spray arm. They should be clear of food and debris.
\015\012Next, There's a check valve (ball) built into the motor unit. Either it's stuck, or the motor isn't pausing at the appropriate time to switch from bottom spray to top spray. You can test the check valve by opening the door momentarily while it's running. The spray noise inside should sound distinctly different. Pausing longer will switch back to the lower spray arm.
\015\012If the check valve works, you'll need a new timer.

Frigidaire dishwasher won't end cycle - will run on and on for hours. Sometimes it cycles through, usually it just endlessly washes and rinses. I have to CANCEL the cycle, which causes the dishwasher to empty and run a few RINSE ONLY cycles (which are consistent, cycle time wise) to rinse the soap off of the dishes. Also, the door for the soap seems to stick - how long into the cycle before the soap door should open? Also, does opening the washer during it's cycle (to add more dishes) change or


I would say the resettable thermostat has failed. There is a thermostat which senses the water temperature, and when it fails, it causes the dishwasher to run constant. Replace the thermostat underneath the dishwasher and that should cure problem. P ... Frigidaire 24 in. FDBB540 Built-in Dishwasher

A common problem with dishwashers is the non-draining machine. If you are having trouble, check to see if the drainpipe and sink trap are clogged.

I have an 18" Frigidaire dishwasher that broke the day after the warranty expired. When I turned it on, it made a loud shrieking sound, but then continued the cycle. When I returned, the unit was full of water (up to the float) and the dishes were dirty. I only used it once a month, so a friend said the pump probably dried out. Any suggestions? Purchased November 2002.

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.

My 2008 frigidaire 24" dishwasher model #FDB1050REC is not washing during the cycle. I have run the test cycle and the tub is filling up and draining but no washing is taking place during the wash cycle. The dishwasher has an electronic control board and therfore no mechanical timer. I put test leads to check for voltage on the power leads to the main washing pump, which I have already replaced with a new one, and I'm only registering a low voltage of around 10 or 11 VAC.

Our Whirlpool KUDP01ILBS2 dishwasher isn't working like it used to. Dishes seem to be getting partially clean, they aren't getting dry at all and it seems they may be being rinsed/washed with dirty water. There is plenty of water in the machine when I interupt the cleaning cycle. I always run the hot water in the sink before I start the dishwasher so the first water into the dishwasher is as hot as possible. Also the sani-rinse light is flashing when the cycle "completes".

Slow drain. My dishwasher is draining, but not enough to empty the water out after a normal cycle. This is also causing the rinse cycle to use recycled dirty water in the process. I've check the lines and there are no blockages there. Inside the dishwasher are 2 little white balls...where is the exact position they should be placed? Could this be blocking some of the draining process?

Incomplete cycle My Miele dishwasher (3 to 4 years old) finishes, leaving the dishes dirty and wet. It seems that it may only be running through part of the cycle - I'm not sure but from the time I set it going to the time it switches off, it seems shorter than usual. The dishwasher is not emptying as it has a pool of water in the bottom. I have tried various settings and have the same problem. the inlet/drain light DOES NOT come on. I have soaked up all the residue on the bottom and cleaned out

I have a 13 month old (Thanks Sears warranty!) Kenmore Portable Dishwasher Model 665.17769. It drains poorly, taking 2-3 times after load is completed running thru the ''cancel/drain'' cycle to clean it out. It is not getting dishes clean either, presumambly because the dirty water isn't being flushed out at cycle end and instead of rinsing with fresh water, it's still screwing with the dirty water.
