Just moved into a place with a dishwasher. I havent run it before. No matter what buttons I press or sequence of buttons I press, the thing just wont run. The lights flash and nothing happens. Could there be a reset or something?

    I just checked the valve under the sink to the dishwasher and it is indeed on. Any other ideas?

    this may sound stupid,but have you made sure the water is turned on to the unit?(usually this valve is located under the sink)alot of times while a property is unoccupied,while trying to rent or sell,they will turn the water off to things such as,dishwashers,icemakers,waterheater,ect (let me know if this helps)thanx for using fix-ya,please rate all replys

The only other thing i know to tell you,without knowing more about this problem,is check the float switch in the tub(its under a tall cover,remove this cover & make sure it is'nt stuck in the up position)otherwise it could be anything from the water inlet solinoid,a bad switch,or even the pc board.hope this helps

How can I get my Frigidaire Dishwasher 900 series to start?

Sounds like you have a bad door switch. You might also have a motor that tends to freeze or lock up. It could possibly be a bad motor capacitor too. Does this help?

Power failure

  • Find the "Start/Cancel" button on the dishwasher's control pad. This button is located on the far-right side of the pad on most Frigidaire Gallery dishwasher models.
  • 3 Press the "Start/Cancel" button to clear the "PF" error code. Resume using the dishwasher as normal. You may have to reselect and start your cycle from the beginning.

My Frigidaire dryer (Gallery series) will not start. It makes a buzzing noise every time i pres the start button.

This is a indication that the motor had shorted out to ground and everytime you press the start button the start and run windings of the motor are grounding out. You'll need a new motor for this fix.

Does not wash well, does not use dishwashing liquid

Here are a few steps to solve your problem. First of all empty your dishwasher and pour in two cups of vinegar. Run the longest and hottest cycle you have. This will clean your machine.

Always run the hot side of your kitchen sink until the water is as hot as it gets and then start your dishwasher.

Switch over to a tablet as opposed to powder or liquid and just toss the tablet into the machine,

now you should be back up and running.
