Question about Frigidaire 24 in. FDB435RFR Built-in Dishwasher
Read on another site that if the dishwasher is not near being perfectly level, this can happen. The check ball moves back and forth allowing water to get to the upper arm sometimes and the lower arm at other times. The upper arm does not usually start until later in the cycle. Level is checked by when the door is open and the door is level.
Did'nt find a solution to my problem but I hope this helps others.

I have the same problem. When i run without the check ball it works. Does it even need the check ball.

You could try running it with the upper arm removed, just so you could be sure that the pressure is not getting to that point - unless you are absolutely sure the upper arm holes/channels are all clear then descale it overnight with some vinegar - just might clear something. if there is obviously only a little flow of water then perhaps you could try getting vinegar into the supply pipe using a basting bulb/syringe or similar - again leave overnight and you may get lucky. The next thing would be to take the machine apart so you could follow this hose through to the pump - undo it from the pump and blow through it or see if you can get a piece of wire in it from the pump end. try vinegar again. check the pump outlet for blockage. Hope this helps :)

Make sure the spout leading into the top spray arm is not obstructed at all. Maybe simplistic, but could be overlooked. Just thought I'd put it out there.

I am sorry to inform you that Frigidaire units are not very good units.You can check the motor and the screen for debris its the wash impeller that pushes the water to the top if its worn it wont have the force to push it to the top rack.Removed the upper rack feed tube from the pump and there appears to be a nylon ball bearing blocking the feed tube. Try freeing that ball and try the unit again it could be the problem.If that is not the case, then the problem is with main motor.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

have an older dishwasher also and recently my wife also complained
about it not cleaning right... so me being the man I am tried in vain
to clean the things... Bought new spray arms online and installed
them in minutes...now the thing works like new... However I have also
found that if the heating element goes bad then that also can mess
things up bad... So I would buy new spray arms, and also check out
the heating element to make sure it is working... Here is a tip that
will help you with the online buying...
