Having problems with your Frigidaire Dishwashers ?

My frigidaire dishwahser was set to run a normal wash cycle and heat dry. It never ran, the soap is still in the holder and the lock beneath the heat dry option is lit. I'm unable to cancel or select any other options. I cannot get the dishwasher to run. Do you have a solution? I have tried holding down a number of the buttons in different combonations but still can't get the light to go out or start a wash cycle.

Answers :

Looks like a number of things are happening.
\015\012It would be easier if you can provide the model no. of your frigidaire dishwasher.
\015\012I am assuming you have turned the mains power off and on.

Sometimes I can run the dishwasher with no problems. Sometimes i will run it and leave the house and come back 5/6 hours later and it is still running on the wash cycle but it is only putting out heat and no water.

I have a Kenmore Elite dishwasher (model 665.1315), and the dishwasher will run through the wash cycle as expected, but when it gets to the heated dry cycle , it doesn't appear to dry. It will then flash a fault code 81 (8 short flashes of the 'clean' light, pause, and then 1 more short flash of the 'clean' light, longer pause, and repeat the code). The dishes seem to be somewhat dry, but there is certainly water on the dishes and on the tub (there is never any water standing in the tub, and t

I have a GU1500XTLB1, type-575-0 Whirlpool Gold dishwasher. For the last couple of weeks I've been getting the control lock on. I got the manual out, I hold the air dry button and it clears. My problem is now when I turn the machine on dosen't matter which cycle I hit (pots and pans, normal, or quick wash) it runs for about 5 minutes and it goes into a mode with the timer having lines going horizontal with the air dry button lit up and rinse button lit up. It sounds like it starts the cycle

KENMORE MODEL # 363.16222100 Hello - my dishwasher (model# above) is currently filled with H20 and will not drain/work. When the knob to select the dishwasher cycle to begin is turned, it just 'clicks' and does not engage the washing cycle. When I tried to just let it run the cycle as is to 'restart', it had an electrical odor to it., Currently the knob is at the 'Rinse & Hold-(Heated Dry Off)' part of the cycle and all dishes have been removed. I would appreciate any assistance available. Thank

Maytag Dishwasher Model MDB4100AWQ When I start the Light Wash Cycle: Washer fills with water, heater comes on (I checked it with a volt meter--120 volts), timer runs, motor never runs, before the timer gets to "rinse" the heating delay light on the door comes on and the timer stops. The heater is still on (120volts) nothing further happens it just boils away on the water in the washer.

Hello,Welcome to FixYa ... Thermador DWU244 Dishwasher

Several people have posted this problem with the Frigidaire Ultra Quiet 111, but I have seen no solutions. When it is set to wash without extra heat, it cycles normally. But when the extra-heat wash and extra-heat rinse are selected, then it gets stuck first mid-wash at the 7 o'clock position, and if it is manually advanced then it gets stuck again during the rinse cycle just before the 9 o'clock drying position. Both the wash and rinse thermostats have been replaced without solving the problem.

I have a 2 year old Electrolux ESL 63010 dishwasher, and it worked perfect until a few days ago, when it did not wash cleanly and the dishes came out cold. I read a few forums and it seemed to indicate the heating element. So I ordered one a fitted it, but still the water is not getting hot, or drying the dishes after the complete cycle. I have done a visual check of the PCB board, which looks clean and good. No error sounds, and it completes all programs, but with cold water and no drying. W

I have a new Frigidaire FDB1050RE diswasher. I ran it for the first time set on normal wash and pressing both the Hi-temp wash and heat dry button. This cycle is supposed to take a total of 89 minutes to complete including the drying cycle. After 89 minutes it was still in the wash cycle so I cancelled it to preserve sanity. In the instruction manual it states that the water temperature must be above 120°F. Our building's water heating unit is set at 110°F. Why there is a lower temperature

It should still work pretty well but you probably can't use the high temp wash because it will take too long for the dishwasher to heat up the water enough to satisfy the high temp washer thermostat. If the thermostat's calibrated closing temperature ... Frigidaire Dishwashers

My Kenmore model 665.16022401 has the problem w/ the clean light flashing. I tried the bottom combo of hi temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash, heated dry and it re-set my dishwasher but then after I tried to run a new load it doesn't seem like it finishes all the way through because there is still soap left in the soap dispenser and the dishes arn't all clean, plus the green clean light begins flashing again. Don't know what to do.

Hi, I have a zanussi DE6744S. I can select any program and water fills as normal. The problem is that the cycle runs and runs and dosn't stop unless I turn the machine off. When I restart the machine it just carries on until I press the current program button in for a about 10 seconds and the program stops. On the odd occasion it ends normally on the economy cycle (30 mins) but its pot luck. It does wash as normal but dosn't seem to get past constant washing (no drying) . Hope you can help, S

Kenmore Ultra Wash Quiet Guard - will not drain at end of cycle. After cycle is complete, water (not clean) sits at the bottom of the washer but I still unload the dishes and then turn the cycle dial around again - going past all the water heating and filling and washing - and land on the drain cycle, it will drain. Any ideas why it will not drain when I let a cycle run, but will drain once I cycle it through to the drain option?
