Having problems with your Frigidaire 24 in. FDB1050RE Built-in Dishwasher ?

Dish washer will open and let the gel pack out.

\015 When my dish washer runs the little door inside is not opening and letting the gel packs we use out into the main part of the washer. Is it the gel packs causing this or is it something mechanical inside the door?\015

Answers :

The gel packs are not supposed to go inside the dispensor. It is for powders & liquids. The gel packs & blocks just go into the dishwasher, per directions on package. They either go into the bottom or with the silverware.
Check to be sure you are not using old detergent or gel packs.

When starting a wash cycle it pumps out the remaining water as usual. It fills normally but does not pump/wash the dishes. It continues to heat and when first noticed it seemed to have gone through the complete cycle but didn't wash. The detergent door had opened and the soap pack dropped out but it never dissolved. The dishes were extremely hot too. Is the same pump used to both drain the washer and wash the dishes?

Westinghouse Virtuoso 922 dishwasher. Wash cycle completes, but water does not drain out. If I let the cycle continue, after a delay the rinse cycle starts, but of course no clean water is pumped in so the dishes are "rinsed" in the dirty wash water. The wash cycle itself is successful with water pumping all around the washer if I open the door mid-cycle. I have removed and cleaned all filters which were correctly fitted so I am confident there is no foreign matter inside pump. When the water sh

Soap problems Not only won't the soap dissolve but there are granules on the inside of my glasses. The dishes are also not getting very clean. I have been using cascade 2 in 1 action packs for a few months now with no problem, they've been great. I ran a wash 2 days ago and when it was done, I opened it up and the dishes were still dirty and the action pack was just sitting there slightly open with detergent sitting on the bottom of the machine. I had done a wash 2 days before with no problem.

Re:dishwasher My dishwasher was working perfect. Now, everytime the cycle is done, the detergent door is open but the detergent is sitting right there. I was using the electrosol gel pack which was working great. Now, the gel pack is sitting there when i open it. On the bottom is of the dishwasher is a lot of sand-like particles. I clean this out everytime. I haven't changed anything and am wondering why, all of a sudden, it stopped working. I've had this less than a year. Thanks.

The dish washer ran its full cycle but won't shut off. the little pump motor in the very bottom keeps cycling water in the bottom. it won't shut off when you open the door, it won't shut off when you push the power button and the front switches won't respond. the little light on the front of the dish washer is blinking and it has never done that befor normally the lites are always on solid.....

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

Dishes are still dirty. I have used every kind of dishwasher aide, half loaded it and dishes are still dirty, I let the water run until very hot before starting the washer. The washer says you don't have to rinse but I do and they still come out dirty. Also black nasty stuff comes up from my garbage disposer.

Got a new Kenmore dish washer in mid January. Worked fine for a couple of weeks then so-called "clean" dishes were covered with a residue from, I assume, was the dishwasher soap. I tried cascade action pacs, then cascade powder and finally, cascade gel. Nothing helped. I ended up having to use SOS pads to get the "crud" off of the dishes and silverware, and use regular dish soap to hand clean each dish and saucer and bowl...as well as each knive, spoon and fork!

Have the Kenmore Limited Edition dishwasher, model # 665.15892100. When dishwasher is running, you can hear the soap container flip open. However, @ end of washer's completion, and main door is opened, the soap is still in the container. Some has leaked out, but the majority is still in the container. Dishes are still dirty, so it appears that either there is no water to disperse the soap, or does the door really open? Any ideas?

I am getting a clicking/ticking noise (1 click/second) from my Maytag (model MDB9100)dishwasher after it goes through its auto clean normal wash cycle. At the end of the cycle the arrow = clean and the clicking sound is there. I opened the washer door for about 1 minute noted the soap containers are empty, dishes clean, machine still hot/steamy. Closed the washer door and the clicking sound resumes. Please advise.

Champion dishwasher we have a champion freestanding dishwasher at my church. after the cycle is completed, the pressure guage behind the washer still shows 25-30 and it contnues to spray water. not forced by the motor, but more like a stuck open fill valve. if i turn off the water and run it, then turn the water back on, the valve is closed and does not let water freely in. butif i run it with the water on, it will continue to spray in freely after the cycle light goes out and you open the door.


If you turn the unit off from the circuit breaker will the water still run?if so the guts inside the solenoid valve are worn.you can call champion and get a kit to replace the worn parts and its not difficult to do.hope this helps. ... Dishwashers
