Question about Frigidaire 24 in. FDB1050REC Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
Unit is 2 1/2 years old. Pump was replaced twice under warranty , in first year. Is there another vendor that supplies a better pump ? Or is their something else to look for ?
Have you checked with [assuming] your State's Attorney General Office? The third repair usually invokes the lemon law and requires that the supplier replace the entire dishwasher under warranty.
If you have not checked into that I would do that now and next.
This noise, from the pump, was the reason for the first replacement, or did it leak?
I cannot imagine them replacing a pump for noise, as noise, like hot, or cold is up to the individual what the parameters of PAIN are.
So let's suppose you cannot get a new dishwasher, and you have checked out the lemon law wherever it is you live, I will give you some technical answers and direct answers to your questions.
First, yes there may be a better pump, but these are generally not universal, the OEM pump is probably the only one that will fit, and should be the best available, anything aftermarket is generally not as good as the OEM [original Equipment Manufacturer].
I need more information on why the pump was replaced. Was it just noise? And did they run it in your presence after replacement, and did you buy off on it at that point? Then it got noisey again?
Now, next, a couple things could have happened, there could be noise baffles missing from the get go, or the first repair they left it out.
The pump could be cavitating, meaning there is not enough liquid, in the pump and it is swirling air.
Is the water pressure to spec, does the washer work or clean OK other than the noise?
There are so many possible reasons for noise from lack of water pressure, to missing baffles, to a bad product period, to the leveling is not right, to a clamp on a hose left off and when the machine calls for water the hoses slap or bounce.
This is going to be tough to settle over the phone, or email.
I would go to the seller and ask the same question then report back here, but before arm yourself with any lemon law data, and you could end up with a new washer for no charge.
There really are not huge differences in two pumps like this that would create noise, if there are two choices or more.
A pump could be made cheaper, the seals could fail quicker, but the noise thing, I doubt is a quality issue, something else is going on.
