Having problems with your Frigidaire Dishwashers ?

I have model #FGBD243KF1, Gallery 24" stainless. The wash cycle is taking almost 2 hours. Should it take this long? Also, when switching cycles during the wash time the motor whines a bit. Is this also something to live with or should I get it checked out? Thanks.

Dishwasher Dilema Hi, Can someone help me solve this problem. Last time I had a problem with my dishwashers I was pretty successful in solving it on this site. I was running a reg wash on the top drawer of my Fisher&Paykel when I suddendly had to stop it in the middle of a wash to add more dishes (something I do all the time) suddenly both screens started beeping with an F1 along with a wrench. It sounds like both motors top and bottom are running full blast. I tried shutting the power for a few

I have a fridgidaire Gallery dishwasher model # FDB949GFS2. It was not spraying water while running, so I checked for clogged wash arms and hoses etc. So I replaced the motor assembly and now I hear the motor running, it fills with hot water but it is still not circulating water. Is there something else I need to check. Thanks Tom

Yes I have a whirlpool DU1345XTVB1 dishwasher. Just got in July. After each wash cycle the dishes are not dry. I have been using Finish gelpacs w/jetdry & also have a off brand drying agent in reservior to help dry dishes. The water temperature is set pretty hot & washer is draining good. I have tried checking wash cycle a few minutes into 1st cycle to see if water is in filling & heating. Didn't know if maybe heating element going out or thermostat not working? Thank you for your time.

How to diagnose? My Kenmore won't run. First it was flashing the clean light 7 times, so I figured out how to reset ("High Temp Scrub"/"Air Dry"/"High Temp Scrub"/"Air Dry"), but when I try to run a wash, it sounds like it's not getting water into the tub. When I checked it several minutes later, it was in "Cancel" mode, making a sound like it was draining (or trying to drain), then the clean light started flashing 7 times again. Clearly, the machine has something wrong but I don't know where to

My 1yo slimline hotpoint dishwasher LST216 has developed a fault when trying to run the 'normal wash': washing stops after a couple of mins, the lights start flashing and the alarm comes on as soon as the water is being drawn into the machine. When I open the door I can hear a whirling/grating motor noise coming from the bottom of the machine. I have cleaned all filters and have run other programmes to check overall functionality and they all work as expected most of the time. I cannot unders

We keep getting the message that the wash arm is blocked (Heavy/Rinse), yet the arm is free. We have replaced everything in the drawer that might impede the arm. We have checked the arm for food blockage, but there is none. Moved the rotors around to different drawers. We have replaced the rotor and the pump motor. Still get the message. It is annoying to receive the message four or five times a cycle. I think it is whatever is sensing the arm block, but have no idea what that might be. Af

Whirlpool ADG 7550 integrated dishwasher not cleaning properly. Ive checked the filter and there are no signs of blockage. There is no unusual beeping but there is however a weird motor noise that just appeared. Dishwasher appears to run through the cycles but most of the time there is still traces of food left behind. It takes about 3-4 washes to clean the plates. Sometimes there is a lot of soap residue left around the release door which leads me to believe there might be a pump issue? ive ope

Kenmore dishwasher 587.15163401 won't fill. I checked the float switch with my multimeter and it's working properly. It's registering zero when I touch the terminals and 1 when I activate the switch. On this particular washer, how do I access the water inlet valve to check it for debris and also to check the solenoids? Also on this particular washer, how do I access the drain valve and solenoid. Can you tell me if this is a single direction motor or reversing motor. As I understand


The problem was the water fill valve. When set to Ohms, the multimeter never would read zero indicating a problem with the water fill valve. I replaced the part and it works now. Be sure to turn your water off under the sink before taking it off t ... Dishwashers

Lately the soap remains in the dispenser, dried and caked in (I have to dig it out with a sharp object, as it becomes a solid piece). I have also tried gel soaps, but find them in the bottom of the dishwasher, partially intact. The mistery is this does not happen all the time, but most of the time! I've checked the water pressure and the water temperature: both seem to be fine. The dishwasher does run a full cycle. Is it time to buy a new one?
