Having problems with your Frigidaire Dishwashers ?

It seems that not enough water gets into the washer.


Answers :

The only thing that could really cause the dishwasher to not get enough water would be a dirty screen on your water valve, as dishwashers are strictly a "time fill", noramly 90 seconds fill time. Remove your water line underneath (shut off water first), remove teh brass elbow, and check screen

Dishwasher I have a whirlpool dishwasher that does not appear to be getting hot water. The washer water is cold initially and only seems to get warm once the heater in the base of the machine heats it. The hot water supply line does not get hot so I presume no water is being supplied. Is the water supposed to be hot at the start. If yes could this be caused be a faulty inlet valve and if so how can I check. The dishes are dirty especially on the top rack. Thanks for your help.

Gendos is on track with his question. I have the same dishwasher and it doesn't get enough hot water to clean the dishes and runs for hours because the heating element wasn't designed to heat water, just maintain it. The only solution we have found ... Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher

Even though I turned up the thermostat on my hot water heater, the water in the dishwasher does not seem to be hot enough. Mold is growing in the food grinder and even though I choose the heat dry option, the dishes are never dry. Yet, when I touched the element, I got burned. The dishes are not getting clean because it doesn't seem to be hot enough to cut the grease.

I have a Honda xr2600 power washer. When I tried using it, water was squirting from the top of the gun. I took it apart to find that there are o-rings on top of some kind of washer---looks like a lock washer but it's made of cardboard??? Two of these washers were broken. I can get the o-rings but I can't seem to find the washers. I tried getting the manual for this model on line with no luck. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.


The washers that you describe are made of teflon and are split to facilitate installation and/or allow expansion as they wear. These washers are actually seals and at times are used together with orings to seal high pressure. You should ... Honda Pressure Washers

I think I need to check the water pump/motor on my Bosch SHU43C dishwasher. It seems the water enters at the start of the wash cycle but then there is silence through the remainder of the cycles. Water will not spray. The drain appears to work ok to drain most of the water out. I have the washer out and upside down. Any hints on removing the base to get access to the pump? Should AI be looking at the control panel also for a fault? (the cycles seem to count down ok)

It seems that not enough water gets into the tub. There is no kink in the water line. If you manually add water it drains out before resuming wash cycle. The water doesn't get around to wash the dishes let alone rinse the soap off the door!

I am having trouble attaching 90 degree brass elbow to the plastic water inlet on my new Maytag Dishwasher. Getting leaks. Teflon tape hasn't worked. Cant seem to get the washer to seat properly when everything is tightened down. Wish the water inlet was not made of plastic. It appears it would seat the gasket properly if the water inlet was made of something more durable.

My LG dishwasher upper rack has stopped cleaning. The uppermost arm is seemingly getting no water at all and the arm on the underside of the upper rack is getting some water, but not enough to turn it. I have already disassembled and cleaned all the way down to the diverter assembly and it has not fixed the problem. I think this is a problem with a the (?) diverter pump or perhaps a sensor that sends water to the upper arms. I am trying to figure out how to further diagnose the problems. The

I have a Frigidaire UC DW Model FDB250RHB2 The unit is not a year old. It is not getting dishes very clean. I read similar posts. I found that there is water coming from top nozzle but not a very impressive stream. It is weak enough that most of the water misses the funnel on top rack. Also not top or bottom arms spin. Last week when i would quick peek during wash cycle there seem to be water coming out of top arm's holes but no spin. We also are getting heavy white staining on glass ware

I have a Frigidaire dishwasher, FDB-1100RHC, that is not cleaning dishes. My fiance cleaned the trap at the bottom of the washer, removing both the small basket and the larger mesh grid. After replacing both, the washer doesn't seem to have enough water pressure to spin the lower and/or upper arms. If I interrupt a cycle and open the door, water is dribbling out of the upper arms, but they are not rotating and do not move from whatever position you place them in. Both arms are completely uno


Hello :)don't feel bad, I run into this kind of problem at least once a week.\015\012It does sound like the pressure isn't there so you're not getting water to the upper spray arm. What you need to do is take the pump apart, which i ... Frigidaire Dishwashers

The pump doesn't seem to put out enough water pressure to turn the various revolving heads/nozzles in the washer - all washing heads are operable (ie unblocked) while the S shaped nozzle at the base and the small round nozzle at the top/ceiling of the cabinet do revolve slightly or slowly - but the two main nozzles spout water but not enough to revolve Is this a defective pump or a partially blocked pump ? - or something else - I have checked everything else and they appear to be functioning


It will be helpful to know the make and model number of the dishwasher to diagnose the problem you have.\015\012\015\012Generally this is attributed to a blocked chopper assembly in the wash circuit but hard to be sure if your model has o ... Dishwashers

My De Dietrich is not filling with water - pipe is on and water available. I've been away for a month - just got back and tried putting on the dish washer but it seems that the water isnt getting through to the machine even though the water pipe is on and waters available? any ideas - really grateful


Yes, lots of ideas. You need to disconnect the water line where it attaches to the dishwasher valve and see if water is flowing. If it flows, then you either have a clogged inlet valve (there is a screen inside the valve that catches debri from the w ... De Dietrich 18 in. VW7451 Built-in Dishwasher

Whirlpool dishwasher doesn't seem to fill with enough water despite good water pressure. Therefore, pump sounds like it is cycling from pumping water for about 2 seconds to going dry for 2 seconds to pumping water for 2 seconds to going dry for 2 seconds, etc. Spray arms rotate only for the 2 seconds when pump is actually pumping water. Dishes do not get clean.

We have a Sears Ultra Wash III dishwasher, model 665.1677993, bought in October, 1995. It is not filling with enough water to get the dishes clean. I took the water valve out and looked at it and it seems okay. It doesn't look like the valve is opening all the way - just my guess. A small stream of water comes out with good pressure, but it is a small stream. I can't find any screens or filters in the water line coming in. The fill cycle lasts only about a minute. Is that adequate? Steve


There should be another letter after the p in your model number. If it's just a B then there are no parts available for that model. Typically a dishwasher will fill for 90 seconds or more. One minute or less sounds like you have a control board is ... Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher

Purchased in 2003. Dishes were exquisitly clean till 2008. Our water heater temp was set at 140 temp. This heater was replaced with a heater now set at 125 temp. In the past two years dishes are nowhere as clean on the the normal start setting. Should I go to the Pots and Pans start setting to get hotter water or should I turn up my water heater? All this is assuming that water is not hot enough. Does the washer heating element ever burn out?


Try turning on your water at the sink for a while on hot let it run then start the wash cycle that should help. what that will do is let the cold water run out of the pipes and therefore you will have a hot water start. ... Kenmore Dishwashers

My Frigidaire FDB935RHS0 top rack is not getting enough water (pressure) to rotate the top rack sprayer. We have looked at all the connections under the machine as well as the tubing, but we have not found any obstructions or problems. The water moves very slowly up the tube to the top of the machine and the water only seems to trickle out of the feed line therefore the sprayer doesn't spin or spray. We have disassembled the bottom sprayer and have found no obstructions there either. Do you have
