Having problems with your Frigidaire 24 in. FDB679GF Built-in Dishwasher ?

Hi experts - My dishwasher won't drain properly. There's several inches of standing water in the bottom of the unit. During the drain phases of the wash, the motor underneath doesn't spin and a buzzing is coming out of the motor relay. During the wash and rinse phases, the motor runs fine and all appears well. Any thoughts? Thanks!


Answers :

Either the water outtake or the pump are clogged - you will have to remove it to see where's the problem.
The filter in the bottom may be blugged. If you take the lastic cover off in the bottom there is a filter before the pump that could be plugged up.

The heater is still on (120volts) nothing further happens it just boils away on the water in the washer.

I have an Ariston LS245 dishwasher, have just had the pump replaced, as it had shorted out, due to water in the bottom tray where the water detection float is, also a new drain hose fitted. Have just run a wash and after running a while, presumably to the end of the rinse, wash and dry cycle, then one of the cycle phase lights, the one for 'soak' blinks constantly. I switched the machine off and had a look to see if a wash had been done, the dishes look clean. In the book it says that if one

Dishwasher is not cleaning well, dirty film all over everything, like its not rinsing. In rinse cycle only, some water comes out of lower left port inside but nothing else. Hear a low buzz underneath unit like a motor or pump is energized but no water getting to the top.During normal wash cycle, buzz from underneath seems to cycle on and off, say every minute or so like its cycling on an overload. Do I have a bad pump and if so how do I get to it?

I have a Kitchenaid Dishwasher, model KUDM01TJWH0. It runs through the washing cycle properly, but then the Rinse Only light begins to flash and it does not drain.

My Bosh dishwasher now runs well past the 105 minutes as stated in the manual, over three hours before I intervene. It gets stuck on the wash mode, it wont drain or rinse, just runs and runs in the wash mode (I know it's in the wash mode because when I open it up, theres suds inside). It will do the wash mode until I reset the wash mode to "Rinse & Hold". I appreciate whatever information you could provide.

I have a Whirlpool DU810SWLQ0 that will not drain. I've pulled the unit out, snaked the drain tube, pulled the motor/pump, and pipe assemblies, and cleaned the food trap, which I also removed.

KitchenAid dishwasher KUDS24SEBL does not drain after rinse. It goes through wash cycle, drains water completely , then it fills water for rinsing, runs and after that it does not drain.

I have a Kenmore diswasher model 587 1525. I can hear the water filling and rinsing, but during the wash cycle I do not hear the motor. At the end of the wash cycle and when I open the door I see the detergent tablet is sitting on the floor. The dishes are not cleaned. Does this mean that the motor has failed or is it the control card. I can hear some clicking noise while the motor should be running. Maybe solenoids cycling.


... Kenmore 24 in. 15252 / 15254 / 15259 Built-in Dishwasher

This thing has never drained properly. You have to hit the cancel/drain button a few times for it to finally drain. I don't think it drains completely after wash and before rinse because everything comes out covered in particles that weren't there going in. We've checked the hose, and for stuck food with no luck. There aren't many dishwasher repairmen in my area and I'm at the point it's just a giant drying rack while I hand wash. Any advice would be welcome!
