Having problems with your Frigidaire 18 in. FDR252RB Built-in Dishwasher ?

Not Draining Dishwasher goes through all cycles, but will not drain when its supposed to.


Answers :

HI. check the following areas for faults.

1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer/control board
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

There is a pool at the bootom of my dishwasher when the wash cycle is completed. When doing "Rinse Only", I could hear something come on immediately following the rinse but nothing seemed to happen. I pulled the Dishwasher out and the drain tube is set up so that it immediately goes upward a few feet before it eventualy goes back down to the drain. I noticed that there is water in the tube right next to the Dishwasher before it makes that climb. I'm wondering what all this means...

I have a Kenmore dishwasher, model 665.17019401 (serial number FS1002610). It goes through all cycles, drains out water, periodically, and dries the dishesat the end.

I own the Siemans SL34A006UC dishwasher which had the recall repair completed. Now it doesn't work right.

We've got an Meile Incognito dishwasher, model G 843 SCVi plus. It purges at the begining of the cycle and then seems to fill with water, but then the red Intake/Drain light starts to flash and the cycle goes no further. I've removed, checked, cleaned and replaced the triple filter and the drain pump but the light is still flashing. I spun the propeller both ways, no problem there. Any ideas for me?

Have a Kenmore dishwasher #665.1677993, approx. 13 years old. Upon starting new cycle the pump turns on for a few short seconds, then off, then after a couple minutes it goes on again for a few seconds then off, then later in the cycle it does stay on for a longer period of time. In conjuntion with this intermitent problem it has begun leaking out the bottom of the front door. I have checked drain line, check valve, strainer/screen and vent in the door. I assume it is an electrical issue?
