Having problems with your Frigidaire 24 in. FDB635RF Built-in Dishwasher ?

I have soap build up in the dishwasher. The dishes aren't getting completly clean. Ran load today twice and they didn't look any better.


Answers :

Most likely causes are:
\015\012
\015\012Not enough water entering dishwasher (check level after fill... Should be slightly below bottom wash arm)
\015\012
\015\012Water filling but draining during wash cycle. Check toward end of wash cycle but before drain. See if water level is diminished from start of wash cycle.
\015\012
\015\012New 'water saver' dishwashers are notorious for having smaller water jets, and thus easier to stop-up jets. Check the jets on all wash arms to be sure they are cleared of food particles.
\015\012
\015\012Another way to check the wash arms is to manually position them at specific locations, momentarily run the dishwasher for a few seconds, then open the door to inspect the location of the wash arms. Do this three or four times to eliminate the possibility of coincidence.
\015\012
\015\012If the wash arms do not move from the location that you put them, the most likely cause is food particles stopping up the water jets. These jets not only clean the dishes but also the water pressure they generate turn the arms inside the dishwasher to properly distribute water pressure on the dishes.
\015\012
\015\012Sometimes you can dislodge and remove food particles stuck in one of the jets with a toothpick or other small probe. Others require that you remove the arm(s) and get a little more creative. I use compressed air to clear mine, but not everyone has access to compressed air, so use whatever you can to remove the food particles.
\015\012
\015\012Simply dislodging them from the water ports is usually not effective... As soon as water pressure is applied, the particles return to the jets and stop them up again. The real fix in this instance is to completely remove the food particles from the arm if you can.
\015\012
\015\012Hope this help. Good luck.

I have been negligent in not cleaning out the filters and after the unit more or less stopped, I pulled the two filters finding them full of what looked like soap scum. I cleaned them best I could (but noticed the inner filter still had most of the small holes blocked) Started the unit and it cleaned alright for a couple of days. Last night after running a load all the water did not empty from the bottom of the tub? Any suggestion on what wrong? Bought the unit on 1/19/05. Thanks

The panel sounds like hard plastic and is in perfectly good shape. It just looks bad. I've tried soap and water and other cleaners but nothing helps.

Our maytag is about ten years old. No big problems that a little vinegar wouldn't solve once in awhile. Lately, we ran out of water softener salt and a white film was on dishes and not getting clean. I filled the water softener again, and did the vinegar wash, which helped a little. Now dishes not getting clean. I got desperate and did an empty load with CLR in it. Still, not effective.

Is our dishwasher no good? We have hard H20 and practically rinse clean our dishes, untensils & glasses before we load it. We never use it for pots & pans. There's a sort of soap scum on the clear glasses. The utensils are spotty & streaky. The stuff is not clean looking. It's a 10 yr. old Maytag.


If you have hard water, glasses can look spotted and cloudy even after cleaning. Sometimes changing the dishwasher detergent can help. The easiest solution to clearing up glasses that start to look cloudy is to add some vinegar to the bo ... Maytag Dishwasher

I have a Whirlpool Quiet Partner II model DU1100XTPQ7. The top rack is not clean after the dishwasher runs. We cleaned both sprayers with pipe cleaner & ran water through the lower sprayer with a hose. Then we let the dishwasher soak overnight with a gallon of vinegar in it. After running that through a cycle, we still see no improvement. We do have very hard water here; I add 1/2 cup of vinegar to every load. Any suggestions? Heather

The cycle doesn't seem to stop correctly. I start a load. It doesn't seem to matter which mode that I start in, but it will count-down the time, but at the end it hasn't stopped running. I've cleaned out the filter and the trap below. I've ran vinegar through a cycle. I've cleaned all of the spray arms. It doesn't seem to advance out of the wash mode. There is still some suds at the end. I have to end the cycle by canceling and draining it manually, then run a couple of "rinse--9 minute" cycles

My 5-year old Bosch dishwasher leaves a somewhat fine grit on dishes? especially obvious on the inside of glasses. I use only Cascade detergent, use a rinse aid, don't overfill the machine, and always make sure that the filter at the bottom of the dishwasher is clean. I also make sure that the spinner is able to move freely. But, after all of that, I sometimes get very clean dishes; even more often, not. I see no rhyme or reason. I am presently looking at an entire load that has gone through

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.
