Having problems with your Frigidaire Dishwashers ?

I have a Frigidaire Aqua Surge with Speed Clean dishwasher. The model # is FDB4315LFCO The serial # is TH64297242. There always is a smell in the dishwasher. Even when I have just washed the dishes, when I open it it smells. Also when there are just a few dishes in and I close the door and reopen it, it smells. I rinse everything very well before I put the dishes in. I have tried cleaning it with a dishwasher cleaner and that didn't help. HELP!!!!!


Answers :

HELP s on it way . it is or may be a install problem . take a look at the drain and how it connected to the disposal . If where it connects at that point the hose is going down hill then when the disposal is sending the grap down the dishwasher drain line . the dishwasher drain hose should leave the disposal and head up to the under counter edge and then return in a downward way to the dishwasher . this would be called a reverse trap . prvent ing food to go to the dishwasher .. this will prvent the odor .. mm hope this will help feed back pls ..

The dishwasher isn't cleaning well and doesn't use much rinse agent. I have tried and tried to figure out why the dishwasher isn't washing dishes well and I can't figure it out. I haven't called the manufacturer yet and maybe I should. I've changed the cycles and that doesn't matter. First thing is that it doesn't really use very much rinse agent, so my glasses look yucky. Second thing is that I can tell it hasn't cleaned the dishes well because the inside of the door isn't clean. With a s

We purchased an Electrolux Dishwasher Model #EWDW6505GBO, installed on 8/3/10, and we are very dissatisfied with it, as it just does not wash the dishes clean. We have had G.E. Dishwashers, two, since 1961, and then a Bosch, and they have all worked well. It appears that the water is not getting to the top and/or properly rinsing them. We rinse everything prior to putting the dishes in, but coffee cups come out with the ring around the top. The soap doesn't fully disolve. We have tried doub

Dishes won't clean and leave a white film. Repair guy has been out twice and says everything mechanical is working good and that its the detergent with rinse aid. I've been using the detergent for 4 years the same way and adding rinse aid as well. Also the water temp was increased to 120 from 115 because he stated it was to cool. Help.

Pump problems I had a fairly light load of dishes that needed to run so I thought I'll put some plastic fruit on the top rack to also get clean. Well, when the load was done and I opened the door everything was covered and I mean everything with a whitish substance aka wax! One of the fruit was made of wax an melted all over the entire interior of the dishwasher. We had 30 people now arriving for dinner so I just left it all alone. I should have run it again immediately but I didn't. Now after r

Hi, I have a Miele G681 dish washer with an intake/drain light problem. I've read all posts about similar problems I could find both on this forum and others but I'm afraid I still can't figure my problem out. The intake/drain light starts blinking mid way into the dishwashing process. The dish washer fills up, rinses, drains, water is hot, everything seems to function just fine. Some time after the tablet drops from its door mounted container, and the time estimate reaches 46 minutes r

Dishwasher hey! i have a frigidaire dishwasher. turns on, fills up with a little water and just sits there for about 10 mins doing nothing. starts to clean then nothing some more. it drys everything but leaves the dishes totally filthy even though they are well rinsed prior. after they are dry, the dishwasher then pushes out the remaining water like it is supposed to and on into the disposal. any ideas? i cleaned the pan out completely and replaced the lower parts. thanks!

Our dishes have white film on them. 5 repairmen have said they have no idea to the cause. We have tried everything vinegar, rinse aids etc. Could it be a pressure problem due to a plumbing default in the building of our home? We are not sure whether the top spinner rotates fast enough as well as the top glasses have always had this cloudy, greasy residue.

My wife has a kenmore quietgaurd standard dishwasher, model number 587.16149400. Our issue is that its getting so hot during its drying cycle that is melting plastic dishes. I checked and everything is dishwasher safe so it shouldnt be melting. It is even melting really thick items like water bottle lids and brand new plastic cups. it is also not rinsing well. What could be causing this?

We have the same problem. At first, we were getting a horrible detergent film on everything. We thought that was because the detergent cup wasn't opening or the water was too hard or not hot enough. We kicked up the rinse agent as high as possible, switched to a liquid detergent, and only placed shorter items towards the door. The cup still wouldn't open consistently and our dishes still needed to be re-cleaned. We stopped closing the cup. No change. Why would liquid detergent leave a powder fil

My Maytag Quiet Series 300 is not cleaning my dishes very well at all. My glasses always have grit left in them (even with Jet Dry), my coffee mugs have film left in the bottom of them and now even my plates and bowls aren't getting clean. I don't even put my pots or pans in there, so I'm not sure where the grit is even coming from. We have city water and I use a powder to clean with. Also, there has always been a film of dirt that never seems to get rinsed away right where the door opens. Also,

I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash built-in Diswasher. The flap on the detergent door does not open as it should during wash cycle. Also, I thought the rinse aid was empty so I went to fill it and its obvious that it has not been dispensing either. Otherwise the dishwaser seems to work ok, but we have hard water & I've tried everything and still have residue on dishes.

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

It doesn't get the dishes clean. It has never gotten the dishes clean in the 2 years i have had it.

Other times the appliance works fine but more and more often it is leaving a white film on all the dishes as though the rinse cycle is not working well.

Kenmore Ultra Wash 665 dishwasher is almost 10 years old but has held up well. Over the past couple of months, however, it does not rinse well but leaves a layer of crud on the surfaces of the dishes in the top rack. I've cleaned out the sprayers and the associated plumbing (built-up pulp residue from labels left on some cans) but the problem persits. It's as if the crud is not getting filtered and removed from the rinse stream.
