Answers :

It could be the timer. It could be other things too. You'll need some hand tools and a volt-ohm meter to disassemble and trouble shoot the components. Only if you're handy and already have the tools above I'd say figure it out. Otherwise, call a repair person because if you go buy the tools I've mentioned you'll kill more time breaking your dishwasher than fixing it. It's also more expensive to buy tools, break the appliance and call a repair person. Just call the repair person instead.

Frigidaire Dishwasher Hi, I have installed a new model GLD2250RDC0 Frigidaire dishwasher and it will not start. Power and water supply is connected. When I push the cycle button for Normal the light comes on but when I push Start nothing happens except the "hi-temp wash" and "no heat dry" lights flash.

The washing, heated dry, and normal wash light just flash. I have unplugged and plugged it back in several time, i tried restting it by holding down the Rinse only button for 15 seconds. I pressed the high temp ater, heated dry, high temp water, heated dry buttons to try to reset. I also ran the hot water line that feeds the dishwasher until the water was hot. Nothing has helped.
