Having problems with your Frigidaire Dishwashers ?

MODEL#MWX233RES5 - Serial # XC: grinding noise in wash mode; has stopped working in wash mode- just a click when activating, but will work in spin mode while still grinding


Answers :

HI. Ok, here the deal here; Your transmission will lock up soon. If it is not moving at all in agitation mode, it is already semi-locked, in a way. Frigidaire dose not sell the gear kits for this unit. with that said; i would inspect the hub to be sure of its integrity. If the hub shows any signs of trauma or if it is stripped, it must be replaced. now; if the hub is in great condition, you will then need to replace the entire transmission. As i have already stated above, the transmission cannot be repaired by the owner of the unit, due to the fact that, there are no parts available to purchase on the market. it is a sealed gear assembly. You can only replace it. Click here to view an exploded view of the transmission. the hub will be labeled number 2 on the diagram provided. You will need to remove the inner and outer tub to access this part for inspection. If it is stripped, replace it. If it is not stripped, replace the entire transmission. The washer bearing block will be labeled number 27 on the diagram provided. If these bearing have failed, replace them along with the transmission if the hub checks out ok and it is not stripped. You will also need to purchase a tub seal kit(labeled number 26 on the diagram) during the transmission replacement procedure, as well.

Additionally; I have included a service manual, as well. This manual will help guide you through the disassembling procedure, which starts on page 62 of the manual provided. Click here to access the service manual for this unit.

The manual is quite large, so allow time for it to completely download and save it to your hard drive for future references.

Part number are below:

Transmission - 134735700
Hub - 134418700
Tub Seal Kit - 5303279394
Block Spacer - 131784400(labeled number 28 on the exploded diagram provided)
Washer bearing block - 131784300

  • In conclusion; Check the hub first to insure that it is ok and not stripped. if the hub proves to be in good condition, replace the entire transmission and seal kit, along with the washer bearing block and block spacer.
I am assuming this refers to a Washing Machine and not a dishwasher.
\015\012
\015\012The symptoms are showing a problem with the agitator drive mechanism. Most likely a coupler has come off. The pump and drum rotation should be ok if you can complete the spin without problem.

\015\012Check out this site for the parts that you need to look at.
\015\012
\015\012Hope this helps. Note the frigidaire and whirlpool come off the same factory so I am assuming your washer is identical to that shown here.

Normal wash cycle- tub fills (?), then comes a loud hummmm and nothing happens. I noticed water level didn't reach heater coil and added water until limiter switch clicked. Still just a loud hummmm. Machine was well into its regular cycle when this first occurred, but now, won't even get past initial fill. Pushing the "Cancel/drain" button activates motor and pump: they work fine.

Bosch Shu43C02UC dishwasher fills with water but the washing won't start. As the filling nears complete, a double clicking noise occurs to start the washing motor but nothing happens.

I can cancel the cycle and drain the water but none of the washing or rinse cycles will activate but the timer works. The soap door even opens if the timer is left to

My dishwasher makes a banging sound, I've checked the arm & even when the washers is empty it still makes that sound. NOW I've ALSO got a sound like a "clothes washer in spin cycle mode" also in the wash mode of my dishwasher. Do I need a service call or should I just replace it since it seems to be falling apart....it's only 2 yrs with min use


Hi,This is quite a common problem. I would be able to help you, if you could provide few more details. When did you hear the banging noise i.e when filling, start of the cycle, mid cycle or it is always there?Thanks!! ... GE 24 in. Profile PDW7800 Built-in Dishwasher

My KitchenAid Model KUDE70FXSS 2 dishwasher is new to us today and has never been used before. It was hooked up professionally, but I assumed it would work, so tonight when I tried to run it, it lights up on panel, but it won't run any cycles. It will start putting water in the machine, but then cuts off. It starts making a grinding noise underneath the machine, and it clicks like it is trying to work, but the water doesn't wash. Hmmm. Anyone know what to do?

Dishwasher just started leaving food residue on dishes after washing. We usually don't rinse beforehand but even when we do this it's still happening. Can I run something thru a cycle to give the washer a good clean out? I've cleaned the filter (nothing there), tried to clean the spinning arm as well as I could and looked for any other food that might be clogging things up. Dishwasher came house - think it's about 6-8 years old. Otherwise works great.

I have an Asko w66 front load washing machine that will only wash one way with a 60 second time delay and washes the same way again instead of reversing. At no time will it wash the other way. At the first spin cycle the water is pumped out but the wash drum will not spin. The pump continues to pump and will not stop while the one way wash continues. The timer stops at this point with the one way wash and pump still pumping continuously.

Hi, Just moved into a place with a DU4500B Magic Chef. After a cycle there is still a clump of wet soap in the main wash cup dispenser and the dishes aren't clean. Yesterday I tried putting the soap in the pre wash and and main wash dispensers but leaving the main wash soap dispenser OPEN rather than clicking it shut, and there was still left over soap in the dispenser and granulated soap residue on the dishes and they weren't clean. Many thanks for your help.

Our GE model GSD4320Z00B is having a problem with the drain system. I've run the unit in the test mode and it does pump the dishwasher down. The problem is the unit does NOT pump down during a normal wash cycle. The fact that the unit works in test tells me it is not the pump. I've checked all the hoses and drain paths and there are no obstructions, again verified by the fact it works in test mode. Any test that can be used to determine the problem besides replacing parts one by one?

My Bosch dishwasher Model SHE44C02UC just went completley dead while washing. My wife and I were in the living room and heard a ''pop'' and went to investigate. We discovered the dishwasher was completely dead with no lights on at all. The on/off switch does not work. I checked the breaker and it is okay. Also the disposal is also on this circuit and it still works so I know the circuit is okay. There is still water in the bottom of the dishwasher - no suds - so it may have been in a rinse cycle
