Question about Frigidaire 24 in. FDB1050REC Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
Posted by Anonymous on
Good Afternoon Friend,
I see that you have standing water in your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# FDB105RES. I would suggest trying the troubleshooting tips below:
• If your appliance is hooked up to a food waste disposer, make sure the disposer is empty.
• Check to see if the knockout plug has been removed from inside the food waste disposer inlet.
• Check to see if the drain hose is kinked.
• Make sure the cycle is complete and not in a pause mode.
If you are still having trouble with your dishwasher not draining, I recommend contacting either the manufacturer or a local authorized technician. Hope this helps.

There are actually several possible causes of your problem. I will briefly describe each in hopes that you can isolate the problem and will then know how to proceed.
If the water doesn't drain from your dishwasher, check these:
Drain line/air gap
Drain valve and/or solenoid
Drain line/air gap A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.
Pump Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support.
Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up the pump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replace them.
Drain valve and/or solenoid Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.
Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.
Belt One brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. If this belt is broken or has fallen off, replace it.
Motor If the motor isn't turning or working, the unit won't drain. First check to be sure you have power to the dishwasher. If not, see the section "It doesn't work at all." If the motor hums but doesn't turn, it may need to be replaced.
Some dishwashers are susceptible to getting stuck if you don't run them regularly. If you haven't run the dishwasher for more than a week, you may need to manually spin the motor to free it up. If the motor is defective, you need to replace it. Dishwasher motors can't be serviced.
Timer Part of what the timer does is control the motor and drain valve. If the timer doesn't work properly, the water may not drain and you need to replace the timer. This problem is uncommon.

Hello shellytake5 - Often when there is standing water in the bottom of the dishwasher, it is because more than likely the control or drain pump assembly is faulty and possibly need replacing. However, if the unit is making a grinding noise then it is recommended for the drain motor to be diagnosed. If this problem persists, you can locate a certified technician directly through the manufacturer website or in your local directory to determine what may be causing the issue at hand.
