Water will not drain - Frigidaire FDB641RA Built-in Dishwasher


Answers :

HI. check the following areas for faults.

1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

I have a frigidaire built in dishwasher, about 5 years old. Model #FDBL960BB0. I had a clogged sink which caused my dishwasher to back up. Had the drain unclogged, went to start my dishwasher, it's making the regular cycle noise but is not filling with water. Is there some sort of safety switch that needs to be reset before it will fill with water?

Frigidaire fdb1500lsfo built in dishwasher. Have had for maybe 3 years. I push the start button, and it starts like usual, filling the tub with water. After filling, it will not do anything for about 5 mins, where then it drains. It seems to go through the whole wash cycle, but after it has pumped the water out. Dishwasher steams all of the dishes, but there is no water in it to wash them with.

I need to winterize the built-in Kenmore dishwasher in a mountain cabin where winter temperatures will drop below freezing. The unit is at least 10-15 years old, but I don't have the model number handy. My approach to the cabin water pipes in general will be to gravity-drain them and then blow out remaining water by adding and releasing air pressure. RV antifreeze will go into all P-traps. When it comes to the dishwasher, my plan is to remove the drain hose from the P-trap and drain it as mu

I own a build-in LG Stainless Dishwasher (modle: LDF1178ST). It stopped draining water during its recent startup due to its idle (no operation) for about a year:). I can only feel the hose full of water by touching the drain hose between the washer and the sink desposal. It's hard to check other part of dish washer since it's built in our cabinet. Could any dishwasher expert help to advise how to trouble shoot or fix this problem. Thanks, Alex Chen 571-220-7484
