My Frigidaire dishwasher has dirty water.standing in bottom. Dishes are not clean


Answers :

Two things to consider....clean water or\012dirty water?
\012\012

Clean water usually indicates the fill valve\012is not shutting off all the way and the fill valve is "weeping" water\012in all the time = new fill valve time!!
\012\012

Dirty water usually is not a dishwasher\012problem but more of a plumbing issue. Often the sink drain that carries the\012sinks water outside is not fast enough and some of this sink water is backing\012up into the drain hose and filling up the dishwasher through the drain hose.\012The drain from the sink to outside needs attention as this type of a problem\012indicates a slow house drain for that sink.
\012\012

The dishwasher drain line should be clamped\012to the top underneath part of the counter before entering the sink drain\012plumbing, this may help the water from coming back inside the dishwasher.

I have Frigidaire model FDB130RGS3. This seems like a pretty cheap dishwasher that is provided by my management company. This is third dishwasher I've had in this apartment. The others have all broken. Now this one, which is less than 6 months old, seems to have broken. It does not clean the dishes. I removed the round plastic cover in the base of the dishwasher and the bottom of the dishwasher (sorry don't know how else to describe this) is filled with dirty water. I drained the water and tried

My dishwasher is not cleaning dishes... The cycles work but the dishes do not get clean an sometimes are more dirty if that is possible. I have tried adding jet dry and extra cleaning liquid but get no results. Also there are times that the bottom of the washer fills with water unexpectedly and will even leak on to the floor. It doesn't leak when the dishwasher is running... I just don't know what to do other than clean out the spray arms. Please help.

Our Whirlpool dishwasher, DU1145XTPBA, has almost quit cleaning the dishes. It started with dishes on the top rack. My husband was told by rep to replace the top unit. That did not help at all. Now the bottom dishes are almost as dirty and gritty as the top rack. This dishwasher is too new to have to be replaced and we've already spent $50 on the top rack. Is there anything else to check at this point?

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

Dishlex Global 310 model. My dishwasher has water sitting on the bottom of it and it wont drain. I noticed it after I did a cycle of dirty dishes and the 'fast' light was flashing when I went to open it. Which shouldnt have been because it was on a normal wash. The water has been sitting at the bottom for 2 days now and still wont drain! I've taken out all the parts on the bottom which come out and cleaned them. Still no change however.

The glasses or dishes in the front left side are always dirty and are covered with crumby dried residue when the cycle is complete. I took the wire grate out and cleaned the stainless panel on the bottom, I removed the spinning wand armature and made sure the holes were clear. It spins freely. What else can I do?

My dishwasher does not sound correct (lack of spraying action sound) and this last time when I opened the door the soap had not disolved and the dishes where still dirty.

I have a Frigidaire dishwasher, FDB-1100RHC, that is not cleaning dishes. My fiance cleaned the trap at the bottom of the washer, removing both the small basket and the larger mesh grid. After replacing both, the washer doesn't seem to have enough water pressure to spin the lower and/or upper arms. If I interrupt a cycle and open the door, water is dribbling out of the upper arms, but they are not rotating and do not move from whatever position you place them in. Both arms are completely uno
