Question about Frigidaire 24 in. GLD2150RCC Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Heating element stays on after washing ends

This washer is about 4 years old and has recently developed a very bad habit of keeping the heating element on for hours at a time after a wash cycle has completed. This is despite the fact that "heat dry" and "high temperature wash" options were not selected. When the element is on and hot, the only indicator light that is lit is the "clean" light.

Dangerous problem not to mention wasting a lot of electro. Any clues? Common problem or a new one?

This is a serious issue that you should notify the manufacturer about and also the CPSC. With that aside, you need the repair manual and it is not free. You can order it online though. There is a high limit thermostat installed in the unit. That thermostat is supposed to stop any damage from overheating. The reason that it is overheating is due to a relay sticking shut. If you don't by the manual, you need to remove the unit from under the counter so you can trace wires. Get the color of the wires from the heating element and trace them back to the relay. It is possible the relay is mounted on a control board and those boards are not cheap and when I checked, they are not in stock either.

SOURCE: Frigidaire FDB635RBB heat wash/heat rinse

The "Safe Temp for house hold hot water is between 120 7 125 degrees. plenty good for washing dishes the high temp wash and rinse I've been told was put on the DW's to lessen first year repair calls under warranty. Thus the manufacturer saves lost of $$$ on service calls that just need the hot water temp raised on your hot water tank. DO NOT EXCEED 125 DEGREES WATER TEMP. OR HAVE A PROFESSIONAL REPAIR PERSON CHECK FOR THE PROPER HOT WATER TEMP. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS WASH YOUR DISHES NOT USING THE HIGH TEMP,. SETTINGS BUT MAKE SURE YOU DO USE THE HIGH TEMP DRY CYCLE AND YOUR GOOD TO GO HEALTH WISE. This information was told to me by a repairman in the business for 28 years. We have done it and it works just fine.

SOURCE: Glasses have a film after washing complete. No

There are many probable causes of failure .

A dishwasher's water inlet valve is its most common part to fail. When your dishes are not being fully cleaned, quite often a faulty water inlet valve is to blame. Test your dishwasher's water inlet valve, and if it is no longer functioning as it should, you will have to replace it.

Water temperature is a key element in achieving clean dishes. A dishwasher's heating element is not designed to heat the water that enters it. Rather, the heating element is designed to maintain the heat of the water that enters the dishwasher. Its a good idea to run the hot water in your sink for a couple of minutes before you run the dishwasher. Just to make sure the water is nice and hot before it enters the dishwasher. If the water is unable to stay hot, it can adversely affect your dishwasher's cleaning ability.


There is a filter in your dishwasher. Its function is to keep large particles of food and foreign objects away from the pump. Many of the newly-manufactured dishwashers have self-cleaning filters, and routine cleaning isn't a concern. However, some other dishwashers need to have the filter removed and cleaned regularly. If the filter or grate is clogged or blocked with debris, it may interfere with the normal functioning of your dishwasher

A helpful rating and a testimonial would be greatly appreciated if you are satisfied with my solution..

Dryer will not heating up. Only 5 years old


Two possible reasons:

1. The heating element or the temperature sensor is broken.
2. The exhaust vent is obstructed and needs to be cleaned.
