Having problems with your Frigidaire FDB989GF Dishwasher ?

Dishwasher fills but does not spray(wash)....just sits there...when time is up water pumps out OK...I have cleaned out all of the filter/screens...there was a lot of glass, toothpicks and some string...I removed the cover over the impeller and cleaned out...it turns freely...not sure what to do now... Thanks for your help, Steve


Answers :

HI there, please check the
\015\0121. power connection. Is there any battery inside. If yes then watch the place properly.
\015\0122. There's a sensor that shuts off the water supply when there's a leak. There might be a screw loose somewhere that you have to tighten. If there's no leak, the water shutoff valve might be damaged, in which case you will probably have to replace it.

Kenmore 17362 dishwasher was making a bad noise and now the motor seems to be locked up. I might have already un-jammed the motor by removing the cover on the bottom (inside), and turning the knife impeller on the outside of the screen, but I can see lint type material in the hole on the other side of the impeller. Hard to explain, but it is in the hole in the center of the unit and there is a screen like the knife impeller has behind it. I could clean this lint if I could get the door off. How

I have a GE dishwasher (GSD4020Y70BB) new in 1996. I replaced the whole motor assembly in 2007, seal was leaking. My dishes are not getting clean now, dried food left on plates, coffee stains in cups not being cleaned. I removed main spray arm, found nothing, turned washer on and plenty of water gushing out. I took the cover off sump all clean. I removed the filter screen in the back, there appears to be a valve with some soft rubber around it. Water gushes out of this, does stop during the cyc

I have a whirpool Quiet Partner III, and the top layer of glasses is not getting clean. I had a technichian out some time ago, and the problrem was caused by food debris trppaed in the filter in the wash module.

I'm trying to remove the disposal cover in the dishwasher (GE GSD3207P00WW) in order to clean it, but unlike previous models I've dealt with, this one has a filter thing that looks like a tilted plate, just under the main washer, and that has apparently a drainage tube (or some such) that goes down through the disposal cover, so I'm unable to remove it. How does one take that apart?

I have a Whirlpool DU810SWLQ0 that will not drain. I've pulled the unit out, snaked the drain tube, pulled the motor/pump, and pipe assemblies, and cleaned the food trap, which I also removed. I've run the dishwasher with a bit of bleach, and the water will pump in, get processed by the agitator, and be heated. When the rinse cycle comes, dishes get covered in food, and are never clean. Waste water was being used for a clean rinse. I've run the dishwasher with the drain dangling in a bucket,

Bosch SHU4302 WITH REPAIRED PC BOARD has been working fine for several years now seems stuck in rinse/drain mode and is not quite pumping cabinet dry. I have removed the screens and located the small impeller at bottom below cover. The impeller rotates as though it has multiple spring loaded stop positions. When I turn on the unit and open the door water is trickling from the sprayer arms at low pressure. It seems stuck in rinse mode and will not advance cycles or reset when shut off.

And how can I prevent the clogging to begin with?
