    The outlet works fine. I even wheeled it over to another outlet. It's a portable dishwasher.

Check the outlet where you plug this dishwasher into make sure you have power to it you may have a popped breaker. reply back if this is not the cause.

    There is large number of possibilities that could be going on. I will list a few the cord could have a break in it , the motor my have a short or a dead spot in it, a wire may have come off inside which will break all electric workings of the dishwasher. I have another question for you how old is this dishwasher?

We have a Frigidaire dishwasher there is a p/n: 154881401. Its only about 1 year old but all the light will light up when.pushed except the start and cancel button. Already tried cutting power.

Good Afternoon Denise, thanks for your post!

Based off what you have described your Frigidaire dishwasher will light up and will not start or cancel. This could be a possible problem with your keypad or control panel. In order to access which electrical component that could be causing the issue you would need to disassemble your dishwasher. This is not a simple DIY job and I would recommend having a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you avoid unnecessary part purchases. -Matt

Wont start fdb405olhso

Hi Friend, thank you for your inquiry!

I interpret that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire dishwasher (FDB4050LHS0) not starting. Let's try resetting your dishwasher by flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is necessary to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn on your dishwasher. Confirm that the door is securely closed and select a cycle. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, I have identified that it could potentially mean a number of things: a potential wiring failure, damaged cord, faulty door latch assembly or control board. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose your dishwasher to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts. Best regards! - Z

My dishwasher just displays 00 in and wont start.

The double 00 error code indicates a stuck or shorted key pad or ribbon connector. I recommend to disconnect the ribbon connector and reconnect it and check operation. There is no reset sequence. You should also check the door switch operation to confirm voltage to the control board on the Tan wire. Recheck all the connections on the control board.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for using Fixya.

You probably need to replace the water inlet valve if you don't get water into the dishwasher. The part you need is number 3 in the attached breakdown. The part number is: 154219601. Hope this helps.

Frigidaire Dishwasher won't start

hi there,

as u said that u have already replaced the timer u may also try the following:

Power from the house Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.
