I am a licensed plumber who installed a frigidaire fdb1o5rem1 dishwasher for a customer about 2 years ago. It has water to the solenoid valve and the screen is clean. I can see water coming in to the unit on left side through the port hole on the inside of the unit. Dishes do not get clean and it doesnt act like water is being distrubuted inside the dishwasher. Soap never gets washed away from door. Dishwasher makes funny sound in mid cycle like the pump is not running in wash cycle. Discharge p


I can see from what you have described (by the way it is a very clear and precise description which is very helpful), there is a problem in the water circulation system. These dishwashers use an alternating water flow method to split the water circul ... Frigidaire Dishwashers

Bosch Exxcel model number SGS46E12GB had the check water light on a week ago, checked supply and cleaned filters, all good. light still on, got upset and slammed the door, light off. since then the unit will either wash stuff, or not. didn't seem the arms were spraying very well when I opened the door, so I bypassed the door switch tonight and put it through a pre rinse cycle. (I ran it with the bottom filters removed) upshot is the pressure of water was really poor. also, when I first turned

Inlet/Drain light is on. I have cleaned the drain pump and non-return valve, rinsed under water, removes all foriegn objects, turned the drain pump impeller (which turns freely) and carefully replaced the non-return valve and secured it with the locking clamp. I tried turning off the dishwasher and teuned it back on. No warning light shows but as soon as I try the dishwasher on a wash cycle it fails to pump water into the machine and release the washing tablet door. The programme unit makes a no

The dishes are not clean when we run the wash cycle. It looks like the water flow from the top sprayer is NOT working. The door, when we open it, has undesolved soap stuck in globs on the top of the door. The top dishes are not clean and some of the botom dishes are not clean. We've run some clear washes to see if we can find the problem. The water flow looks suspect. Is it in the electronics or in the water mechanics. I called the repair guy who ususally comes out and says buy a new one! The re

GLD4050 DW won't pump out at any time during wash cycle. Removed lower arm, screen, etc. and washed and cleaned out everything. Removed drain hose and cleaned it out. Reinstalled and ran again. At no time during he cycle does the water pump out. HOWEVER, if I put my hand on the drain pump I can feel and hear the pump running as usual at the right times in the cycle. What else could be preventing the pump out? Thanks!


You could have a plugged pump itself or broken propellers as long as drain and screen are clean which looks like you already took care of that. ... Frigidaire GLD4050RHS Builtin Dishwasher

Inglis MOD#IPU58460 Dishes not cleaned properly...thought that enough water was not being filled into tub because more water added manually and washes great! I checked inlet water valve operation and lines for possible lime buildup and timed "fill" time. All was good and time right to spec! Water level after fill is just to bottom of mesh screens.

My Omega Eurolux Dishwasher (mode: DW211P/1) won't stop cycling, It sems to get stuck during the wash cycle and continues for hours, until I turn it off. If I turn the dial to rinse it rinses fine. It doesn't seem to heat the water at all, there is no steam when I open the door. I have put a new heating element in, but this doesn't seem to be heating up at all. When I open the door mid wash cycle the element is cold to touch.

When my dishwasher completes its cycle, there is powdered detergent left in the dispenser and the dishes aren't as clean as they use to be. This started happening after I ran a HI TEMP WASH with a SANI RINSE cycle. I'm thinking that either the detergent dispenser door is opening late or the water is not getting hot enough. To check the dispenser door, I left the door open and just poured powder into the dispenser compartment. This did not improve the cleaning.

My Frigidaire Dishwasher FDB1050RES2 gets stuck in a rinse cycle. The light on the front will be lit "clean" but the bottom of the washer is full of water. Opening the door does not turn off the "clean" light. For me to get it to run, I have to unplug it, plug it back in, push the start button until the ?washing? light comes on. I then push the start button once more and the dishwasher will begin to drain. I open the door as soon as I hear the water stop draining into the sink drain. This

I have a Bosch "Classic Electronic" dishwasher that has been in use for only 18 months. If it helps - SGU53E05AU/30 is marked on top of the door.. my problem is that on the last cycle, the water won't drain so I am left with lovely clean dishes but there is water up to the drawer line present and it won't drain until the next wash. I have cleaned all the filters and ensured the pipes are not obstructed. It is odd that it only does it on the last cycle. Could it be the microchip?

After running our dishes through a wash cycle we noticed there was still a lot of food stuck on the plates & glasses etc. We cleaned out the trap but due to the murky water in the well, we also pulled out the racks & removed the bottom plate. The underside was greasy and had a lot of grim stuck to it as well as the bottom of the drawer itself. We washed the filter trap, swing arm and plate in the sink. We loaded it with the dishes that previously did not come clean and ran a full cycle. The

I have the Siemens SL84A305UC Dishwasher. All of a sudden it stopped cleaning dishes, but everything sounds normal and it fills and drains water, and sounds like it is completing the cycle. In the past when I opened the door while it was actively washing the water would spray out aggressively. Now, when I opened it while it was supposed to be washing I see just a small amount of water coming from the bottom wash blade, and not even enough to turn the blade very far. I thought it was just a c

Maytag Model MDB7160AWW S/N 10337613WQ Symptons: Fills with water OK, shuts off water OK, does not start any cycle, or drain. After a power off/power on reset, problem remains. Flashes CLEAN & LIGHT WASH. My understanding is this is an error condition for low motor current, which makes sense as the motor never starts. I know both door switches are good (I checked them with a DVM) and both engage when the door is closed. Tripping the water float switch opens the valve and water fills the tub

Hi. I have an LG LDF7810 dishwasher. I did a deep clean and ended up taking out a bunch of grease from the seal between the door-bottom and the tub. I even removed the door to get at the grease I thought was trapped back there. Since then it has been leaking water, sometimes a drip and a couple of times a few ounces have gushed out at the end of a fill cycle. Did I remove some factory grease designed to seal the door bottom? If so, what should I replace it with? If not, what else could the


It is possible that while you removed off the grease the water seal/oil seal was also damaged. Once the seal is taken out it can loose the sealing strength which can make it possible to leak.\015\012Hence it will be good to remove the seal and ... LG 24 in. LDF7810 Built-in Dishwasher

I have a Kenmore diswasher model 587 1525. I can hear the water filling and rinsing, but during the wash cycle I do not hear the motor. At the end of the wash cycle and when I open the door I see the detergent tablet is sitting on the floor. The dishes are not cleaned. Does this mean that the motor has failed or is it the control card. I can hear some clicking noise while the motor should be running. Maybe solenoids cycling.

Have SHU43C and have had no problems with it. We usually run it on the Quick Wash cycle, but ran it on the Regular Wash cycle yesterday because the glasses seemed to be coming out spotty. After it ran, there were no lights on the display like there usually are. The washer had run and the dishes were clean, but it has not drained completely.
