Having problems with your Frigidaire Dishwashers ?

It smoked out my house when it was on the drying cycle any ideas?


Answers :

Did you have any plastic in it like a tupperware or anything for a baby?the water sprays so hard that it sometimes pushes plastic cookware or whatever out of the racks and it lands on the heater and melts the plastic,also if overloading the racks the plastic wheels pop off and burn on the heater,if not this then you'll have to kill the power and start looking for a broken wire on the door,amelted wire nut where the power wires are connected to the machine or the motor smoked up,could be anything,were you near the machine when it happened?could you see where the smoke was coming out of,under the machine or inside,also next time send the model number

I recently bought a different type of dishwashing detergent for my Frigidare dishwasher and my dishes look as if they have not been rinsed. They cycled all the way through the drying cycle so the detergent dried on and was difficult to remove. I would like some advice on whether this sounds like a detergent problem or mechanical problem before I try another load. This washer is not new. It was in the house I bought and I've only been using it for about 2 months. (I usually use Casade Liquid and

I have a maytag dishwasher mdb5601awb. when I hit the start button nothing happens. I have found the instructions to do a manual test which is hitting the heated dry button 5 times and then the start button. Thinking it will run some test which I have no idea what to look for, it actually runs the machine's wash cycles and clean, dries and tells me it clean with the green light goes on. How do I reset/reboot the machine so it starts by just hitting the start button again?

My dishwasher is leaving a film on all the dishes some of the times. 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. I have tried filling the jet dry compartment and have been using the same jet dry and detergent as always. The dishwasher is about ten years old and has been working well up to a few weeks ago. Ideas?
