Question about Dishwashers
Thanks for the troubleshooting re the above post. Have finally got round to swapping controllers and still have the same problem.
1.How do you check motor to see if its working properly?
2.How do you take motor assembley/heat unit etc apart? The area where the rotor fits into is worn. Would this possibly cause the problem?
Appreciate your help.
Sorry for the delay!! If the area where the rotor fits is worn then this will definatley stop the water draining out. You will need to replace the stator assy and the rotor (if the faces are damaged).
HIS IS NOT AN EASY OPERATION..... The stator comes complete with the 2 o'rings. You will need to removed the wiring cover under the drawer, then remove the drain hose & fill hose from the dispenser, disconnect the wiring to the lower part of the controller. Squeeze the retaining clips at the rear of the drawer (underneath) you will then be able to remove the drawer completely from the cabinet. Flip the drawer over and carefully remove the wiring to the motor.lift up the retaining clip formthe locking ring, and turn the ring anti clockwise.The motor and heater plate will now be free to come away from the tub. I always lubricate the o'ring with washng up liquid which will allow the locking ring to slide easier. Good luck thisis not for the faint hearted!! Good Luck and let me know how you get on

Tips for a great answer:
Hello friend, thanks for your post!
I see you are having difficulty with your Frigidaire dishwasher not draining. Check the filter at the bottom of the dishwasher because if that gets clogged then it will not allow your dishwasher to drain properly. Additionally, check to assure that the sump pump is hooked up correctly to allow proper siphoning of your dishwasher. If that is correct it could be a potential problem with your control panel or drain pump and I would recommend consulting with a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. I hope this helps to some degree. -Matt
