Having problems with your Frigidaire 24 in. FDB1050REC Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher ?

My Frigidaire model FDB1050 will not heat the water. The heating element checked out at bout 14 ohms but the approximately 8" wire from the heating element to what I think is a thermostat is slightl

\015 The heating element checked out at about 14 plus ohms A wire ( about 8"long) directly connected to the heating element going to a small black button ( probably a thermostat ) is scorched, must of gotten hot. What caused the wire to get hot and burn? Is there a fuse up line to this?\015

Answers :

Hello preslncon - The black button that you are referring to is more than likely the Hi-Limit Thermostat. The Hi-Limit Thermostat will open and stop power from reaching the heating element. The Hi-Limit is not resettable, and if it is open, it would need replacing. As far as the burnt wire on the Thermostat, more than likely a loose connection to the Thermostat could have possibly caused the wire to overheat. This is not a typical do it yourself job. Personally, I would recommend reaching out to a qualified appliance repair person to proceed further. I hope this information helps to some degree.

I have a GE Profile Dishwasher, Model# PDW7880J03SS that doesnt dry the dishes. I pulled out the dishwasher and checked the heating element for continuity with my ohm meter and got a closed circuit reading.

I have a GE Triton XL dishwasher that is not spraying water onto the dishes. I just reset the power, and that didn't help. Putting it on the rinse only or wash cycle fills the bottom with water, but it sounds like a trickle vs. the spray. The heating element comes on and the soap door opens, but there's not spraying. I made sure there was nothing clogging the water line or other parts. What do you think is wrong?

It appears that water is not running through the dishwasher or that the sprayers are not working correctly. There doesn't appear to be a clog.
