Having problems with your Frigidaire Dishwashers ?

My 18 inch MDR251RER Frigidaire Dishwasher made a start up sound and then there was a plume of smoke behind the unit it was not running at the time?


Answers :

If the machine is runs with no burning smells, you may be better off removing the power plug and pulling the machine out, You`ll probably find that there`s something behind the maching that`s smoking. If it is smoking, and it works, you`ll probably find that one of the multi plugs that connect the PCB to the motor etc is arching producing the foul smell and black smoke. Ian
Hi,\015\012well make sure the dishwasher is getting power. Check your fuse box for blown fuses. If you have circuitbreakers check to see if they are tripped. Make sure the dishwasher's plug is secure in the outlet.\015\012The problem could be the blown fuse.\015\012

Have a whirlpool gold dishwasher.The problem is that the clean lite on the control panel flashes not allowing the unit to work.I installed a new disposal and forgot to remove the plug for the dishwasher drain hose.When the flood happened I opened the door in order to stop the dishwasher.Now the unit will not work.The lite flashes 7 time ,then it pauses and flashes 7 times etc.Is there a reset procedure to run in order to get the unit to work or do I need to buy a new control panel?

Magic Chef DU55CA-01 unit runs but when pump kicks on for discharge cyle water leaks on the floor from the what appears to be the solenoid part. The leaking stops as soon as the pump turns off. What part needs to be replaced? The unit was in storage for some time would this just be an issue with it sitting for some time? What is the best way to determine the real cause of the leak?

My dishwasher is dripping quarter size drops of water right underneath the unit. I ran it last night and when I woke up water was all over the floor. The only thing was that I used a different soap for the first time. Suds were still in the unit. I'm running it now with the old soap and it's just dripping a few drops at a time.

Im replacing a frigidaire with a whirlpool and the problem I'm having is the electrical connections. My old Dw had two elec cords running to it. One small one that runs in the same direction as the drain and water hose runs the other is a slightly bigger elec cord that runs straight out the back of the cabinet unit and I cant tell where it goes. But it has on it anaconda w dutrax type nm 12/2 with grounding 600 volts.Do I need both elec cords for the new whirlpool or just one? All the online vid

I have a Whirlpool Gold Quit Partner III, model GU1100XTLB1. When I run the normal cycle it functions well until near the end. At that time the unit stops and the pots&pans indicator light blinks. If I hold the cancel button in the unit drains then refills and the light starts to link again. I don't know how to reset this unit because I only have air dry. If I leave the power off for a day I can get the unit to reset. If not, it just fills back up with water and the pots&pans starts blinking aga

Our GE dishwasher (5 yrs old, Model GLD4250L00CS) only fills with water half way when the unit is started. The inlet valve was replaced with a new one, but that did not solve the problem. When started, the dishwasher fill cycle runs for 41 seconds before the wash cycle begins. Repair workers told us we probably need a new ECU (Electronic Computer Unit). My questions are: Is 41 seconds the correct time for the fill cycle for our model? What else could be the reason for the unit not filling pr

I have a Frigidaire fdb710lcs0 that never seems to complete a cycle, runs continous, leaves a white cloudy film on the plastic dishes, soap residue on the other dishes, and has a stinky smell now. I first noticed this when I turned the thing on efore leaving for work, came home & it was still running. I have recently wiped "crud" from the bottom inside of the unit where it meets the seal.

Our Whirlpool dishwasher is two years old and using the same dishwasher and glass cleaning fluid since we installed the unit we are now getting soapy suds in the washer when we open the door.

I am a licensed plumber who installed a frigidaire fdb1o5rem1 dishwasher for a customer about 2 years ago. It has water to the solenoid valve and the screen is clean. I can see water coming in to the unit on left side through the port hole on the inside of the unit. Dishes do not get clean and it doesnt act like water is being distrubuted inside the dishwasher. Soap never gets washed away from door. Dishwasher makes funny sound in mid cycle like the pump is not running in wash cycle. Discharge p

My Frigidaire Model FDB2810LDC1 dishwasher will not stop running. Seems to complete a normal cycle and different cycles can be selected with normal time countdown but at end only rinse agent low light remains lit and sounds as if pump is still running. If opened, water appears to be streaming from rotator arms. Have cycled power but symptoms remain.

My Frigidaire model FDBB2040FC3 ''acts'' like it starts running when I press start but after just a few moments the Start indicator light goes out and the Hi-Temp Wash and Air Dry lights start flashing...

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

My Kenmore 16533 dishwasher all of sudden started running really loud on the wash cycle. I stopped the cycle, drained the unit, and looked for something obstructing--found nothing. Started it up, and the problem persists. The dishes do come out clean, however. The dishwasher is 6 yrs old. Is this a problem I could fix, or do I need a repairman? Is it worth the expense of a repairman, or is it time for a new unit?

Dishwasher drain is hooked to a food disposer and until recently the unit worked fine. Last week following a cycle a couple of inches of water did not drain out. All food is removed from dishes, silverware, etc. prior to loading and the food trap in the bottom is completely clear. I ran the unit empty through a Lightwash cycle and afterwards the water level (that which didn't drain out) looked to be the same as before. The dishwasher is run 2-3 times weekly whereas the food disposal is
