Having problems with your Frigidaire Dishwashers ?

Every aspect of the dishwasher works except that it wont drain. After a short time on the drain cycle it turns itself off.


Answers :

There could be something stuck in the pump. If you have a wet vac, you can try vacuuming out the water from the drain hose (it probably connects to the drain under the sink). If you try getting it back to the drain part of the cycle, and vacuuming out the end off the drain hose at the same time, you might be able to free the blockage...

If not, you will need to open the lower panel, and remove the pump so that you can open it and check inside. The pump might need to be replaced. If you don't have a wet vac, you will need to get as much water out of the dishwasher as possible from the inside, and then place a pan under the pump when removing it (there's not a lot of space, so be patient)

My old Neff dishwasher S4132 is constantly taking in water even when switched off! I can drain it ( every hour!) by putting it to drain cycle but have to turn off the mains supply when leaving it even for a short time. Awaiting a plumber as the tap to isolate the supply has broken but am interested to know if a new aqua stop will solve this problem or could it be something else??

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?

Hi, The machine will not complete a cycle. I think it may have started when the power was turned off at the mains during a cycle. Symptoms are : - You can turn machine on, select a program, press start button, close door, machine appears to begin cycle as normal, water seems to load, then 2 minutes later drains, and 1 minute or so after that the machine beeps 3 times to indicate cycle is finished.

When dishwasher is set to begin, sensor takes very long period of time. Cycles are longer than minutes indicated. Dishwasher fills with water but does not wash. Water then drains as though cycle is complete and moves to next cycle. Then the process continues. When cycle for drying is reached, much heat is given and occasionally it smells as though there is burning. A 82 minute procedure turns into hours.

Hi I have a Bosch sms 4012 dishwasher that was in our house when we bought it around 14yrs ago.It really has been an excellent appliance but for the past few months the control knobs have become 'sticky'and relatively hard to turn.

GE GHDA485N 10CS Dishwasher that has standing water in the bottom after the cycle completes. I pulled it out and reconnected power and ran a rinse cycle. I could see that water was pumping out the clear drain pipe but there was still about an inch of standing water in the bottom. Any thoughts as to what part has failed. Does the system use a water level switch or a timed drain cycle to determine when the water has pumped out. If it is a timed cycle could a slow drain cause the problem. Thank you
