Question about Frigidaire Dishwashers

1 Answer

The Frigidaire Professional Series Dishwasher is leaking dishwasher detergent ( during the wash ) all over my tile floor and staining my grout. It seems like the door will not shut all the way. If I push on the door all little, you can really tell a difference in the noise level. Is there a way to adjust the closure to close the door more?

Hi linsley.

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: Is there a way to adjust the closure to close the door more?

First lets back up a little . You say it's leaking dishwasher detergent ( during the wash ). Before you do anything else take a look at the type and/or amount of soap you're useing. Have you recently made a change? I have found that the problem is in this somewhere. If you don't find a solution there then consider a local pro. Unless it's old the problem isn't the gasket and the door closure is factory set. If it's still under warranty then it might be time to make a call.

Dishwasher suds up and leaks during wash


Suds in a dishwasher usually come from using too much soap or the wrong kind. Soap can build up over times causing problems. First start a cycle.Do not add detergent or any dishes.When it starts washing, pour a cup of vegetable oil directly into the tub. This will cut the existing soap suds. You may need to try this a couple time before the dishwasher will drain. After all suds have been removed, load you dishwasher and start a cycle filling the detergent cup up half way. If it goes through the cycle with no problems, you should be all set. Still have the problem? A rinse aid dispenser that dispenses too much rinse aid will also cause the dishwasher to suds up. You can remove the dispenser from the door, flush it out and reinstall. Make sure you turn the circuit breaker off before taking the door apart. After rinsing it out, do not add rinse aid. Try the dishwasher and see if the problem goes away. I've seen people accidentally put liquid dish detergent in dispensers too. A dishwasher that has suds is apt to leak. Fix your suds issue and you most likely will fix you leak

I have a built in Hot point dishwasher that is 15 yrs old. I will be putting a ceramic tile floor down. Will I be able to pull the dishwasher out with no problem?


thank you for thinking about and asking that..i have serviced so many dishwashers where their was new flooring and they were tough to pull out..the best thing is remove the lower panel and raise the legs,and even if it is scrap from a peice of tiles that is cut slip that tile under then lower the legs so the legs will be at the same level of the floor and come out easily in the future..their is no need to even use tile mastic or grout under the dishwasher since it will be hidden by the panel

Why are the coffee cups still stained after the dishwasher is finished, but all the other dishes are clean and santized


Coffee stains are just one of those things that your dishwasher just isn't going to remove. I assure you they are sanitized and safe to use. That being said there are some things you can do to remove the coffee stains.
Use a damp cloth to scrub out the inside with baking soda. Soaking overnight with hot water and baking soda may also work.
Soaking in bleach or vinegar over night. It goes without saying but make sure you rinse your mugs well if you decide to do this.
Fill with boiling water and a tablespoon of dishwasher detergent soak overnight.
Scrub with a paste of corn starch and vinegar. Leave on for 30min - 1hour and rinse.
Interestingly enough denture tablets have also been known to remove coffee stains. Toss a few in there and soak overnight.
Good luck!

High oitch noise during wash


As motor bearings wear out, they can become quite loud when the motor runs. They wear out quickly if they frequently get wet, because the water washes away the motor bearing grease. Bearings can get wet if the spin seal is defective. Then there will also be water leaking onto the floor beneath the dishwasher. Replace the seal if it leaks (read about the main tub seal in the "It leaks" section, later).If, from beneath the dishwasher, you can see a round, plastic disc that's mounted to the top of the motor (a "slinger"), it may have broken free of the motor shaft. If so, it could be rattling around the shaft while the motor is running. If that's the problem, you need to replace the motor.
If the heater fan bearings are rusted or worn, they may squeal, or scrape loudly during the drying cycle. If this is the problem, replace the fan motor. Alternatively, the fan blade may be loose. If so, you need to replace it.
