Having problems with your Frigidaire Dishwashers ?

We had a power failure so the unit was flashing a PF error message. I turned the circuit breaker on and off and the thing just stopped- no more flashing lights...no there there. Is there a reset function and where would that be? Or is it truly dead? I have also been looking for two days for a replacement. As an expert, do you have information on reliability on newer models? The best rated I've researched even through CR are both loved and hated by consumers. Traditionally, repairmen ha

Ok so your dishwasher won't do anything... it justs sits there and "Hums" you can't make it respond to any controls, and the ONLY way to Stop it. is to unplug the unit, replugging back in it simply "Hums" again and will do nothing.
Now this happens because, the STOP Button, is pressed and the "Door Opened", during the Wash Cycle.This should NOT be done. You should NEVER TURN IT OFF MID-CYCLE. you should instead, Simply, pull on the handle, to Open the door, the system will take care of everything, after, you close it,and pick up where it left off. The turning OFF, makes the machine "Think" that a New Cycle, is going to be done, before the old one is finished, and resets itself to do it all again. But it still has water, that's not meant to be there so it must dump it out.
Now, the FIX. Take the Dishwasher, out, and tip over on it's side, tip to about a 45' angle. Water will come out from underneath, this is from a small "Overflow" reservoir. this reservoir has an "Anti-Flood" switch. The removing of this water will "Reset" this Switch, and allow the dishwasher to work again.
So what happens, is this, when the STOP button is pressed Mid-Cycle, the machine must "Dump" whatever water is still in the machine, into the "Overflow Reservoir". This water then causes the Anti-flood switch to jam, and this stops the machine, until it is reset, by the above method.

\015\012Now as for what's what and what's best, well as with everything and especially electrical and electronic goods, you get what you pay for. usually the better known, more expensive "Known Brands" are the best, frankly though they are all, pretty much the same, what IS important is to get a FULL EXTENDED WARRANTY... Then it doesn't matter if the unit lets you down, you will be covered. As even the best of them can and will break down, on occasion.

I have a Kenmore 665.1373 Ultra Wash dishwasher that will not work. In the past few weeks, it stopped mid-cycle, the the clean light began to flash. Sears sent out a technician who told us that the latch was not catching. He adjusted it, did something with a computer and the dishwasher worked for a couple of days. This time, it would not start a cycle, it would only show heated dry if you pushed the smart wash button and nothing if you press start. It looks like some of the lights are continuous

Out of the blue after 6 years of reliable once-a-day family use, my AEG OKO_FAVORIT 6281i dishwasher started OK but about 3 minutes into the cycle began flashing error code 20.

I have a Frigidaire ultra quiet energy star dishwasher and the dial gets stuck halfway through the cycle. It runs all day if I'm not home. And when the dishes come out, there's bits of dirt and what looks like gritty sand stuck on all the glasses. I was going to clean the filter out but I don't know how to do that. It's a ten year old model (at least) and I have no paper information about it. Help!

Good morning. I have a KitchenAid KUDM01TJ with a constantly flashing "Rinse" light. when I hit the "Cancel" button, it too flashes in the same time with the Rinse light. I left the machine alone, came back a few days later and saw that the issue had resolved itself - but I didn't use the machine. A few days later, the "Rinse" light was flashing again and naturally, I hit "Cancel" to see if the same thing happened and it did. This time the lamps are still flashing. I read through the other repo

My kitchen aid dishwasher will not start I replaced the interface control board thinking that was the obvious problem. When you go to set the dishwasher to start some of the settings don't always light up then when you push the start button the lights will flash then start but it's not flashing and won't start. I get lucky once in a while and get it to flash then start. I don't know where else to look. I don't want to start replacing parts one at a time till I get lucky. My model # is KUDIO1F

Just turned the dishwasher on at the wall and tap after it's been sat off for a day. It's done one cycle (eco) and now doesn't seem to be doing anything but flashing. The two lights flashing are the power and eco lights. I have tried turning it off on the console but it turns itself back on and continues flashing. It sounds like it's whirring but I can't hear water. It did have a small leak when we first plumbed it in if that makes any difference?

My Frigidaire fghd2433kf1 starting flashing PF occasionally. I would open and close the door and it would go away. It became more frequent until two days ago when the dishwasher stopped mid cycle and flashed PF. When I opened and closed the door, everything went dead and the dishwasher no longer works. It acts like it has no power coming into it. I checked the breakers and the wires connecting the power into the dishwasher. No luck. I replaced the control panel, but not the control board. It did

I have some problems with a Whirlpool DWF 406 dishwasher: The other day, my wife complained about it not finishing a program (just stopped and started bleeping). I saw a post at this forum where it said to clean out the black grid down my the sump. I did that, and then the dishwasher worked fine a couple of times. Today when I got home from work, the machine just bleeped at me and and the green LED light by the start button flashed 9 times over and over again. Does anyone know what those 9 flash

FDW60 dishwasher Hi My dishwasher is about 15 months old and the problem I have is that it seems to stay on pump and the Ecco45 light is flashing.  A repair company looked at the machine and said that the motor looked like it was leaking and water was getting in the bottom setting off the micro-switch.  He contacted Hotpoint who fitted a new motor today at a cost of £89.85.  Went to use dishwasher tonight and we still have the same problem.  The dishwasher started the washing programme for about

Plastic Pieces We purchased our ASKO 1385 dishwasher 7-8 years ago. Over the years, I have found "small square, thin, pieces of gray plastic" inside. Where are these coming from? Also, we have replaced the drain pump 2 years ago and looks like we'll be replaced the main pump within the next few days as no water is going through. We are looking at paying big $$$ for that pump. Almost half as much as purchasing a new dishwasher. Is this a common problem?


Yes, I have the same problem and it is the upper bearing rack, not the pump impeller. The new bearing kit is $30.00 (another is available for $123.00-the same!!). ... Asko 1385 Dishwasher
