Good Afternoon Jodi, thank you for your post!
Based off what you have described your Frigidaire dishwasher is displaying an error code "CO" and will not run. An error code of "CO" may be a miscommunication within the control panel and you can clear that error code by disconnecting power from it for roughly ten minutes. If you continue to experience an issue with your dishwasher I would suggest contacting a professional technician for a diagnosis to be completed. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Thank you for your post, Cathie Sanchez!
I understand that your Frigidaire dishwasher is displaying error code "S" and will not restart. The error code "S" usually stands for sanitize, this could also be a miscommunication within the control panel. I would recommend performing a reset on your dishwasher and you can do that by disconnecting power from your dishwasher for roughly ten minutes. If you continue to experience issues with the error code I would suggest having a professional technician out for proper diagnosis and repair. Hope this is helpful. -Matt
