Question about Frigidaire 24 in. GLD2150RCC Built-in Dishwasher
I have Model #GLD2150RCB0.
The unit ran fine on 11-26-08. Tried running it this morning, and nothing happened.
Found water in the bottom of the unit, dis-assembled the wand etc. in the bottom, and sucked out the standing water. Put everything back togather, pressed start, the lights lit up where programmed on the control panel, and after a moment just heard a click. And, nothing happened.
On advice from my father, I checked for any blockage in the discharge hose under the unit to the garbage disposal. There isn't any and the inside of the garbage disposal is clean.
Please help....The unit is only 4 years old and Christmas is around the corner...
Also, I am quite handy at fixing things.
Above is a manual and wiring diagram.
There is a test you can initiate by pressing two buttons, see the wiring diagram.
Couple things to consider.
1) Since you say lights come on, seems the door switch is probably OK.
2) There is a level switch, which switches the motor, etc. off if water level gets high.
Check this switch which should have about an inch travel. (Device looks like a top-hat).
You can lift it out and clean under it as well. All this amounts to is a float, it operates a switch under the floor of the d-washer.
If this doesn't get you going, I suspect the timer or the motor.
A blocked drain is definitely reason for the dishwasher to leave water in the bottom.
Seems removing the water should have left it run a partial cycle.
What your dad said is on the right track. You will need to disconnect the hose from the disposal or small drain pipe where the rubber hose connects to the drain. (can be the side of the disposal). Other end is connected to the dishwasher and can be removed from there as well.
Water will be in it, have a towel ready to catch the water. You can check it for any kind of blockage once you disconnect it. Careful not to run water in the sink while disconnected, it can run out the opening.
Manual has troubleshooting tips and may be of some help, though I didn't see your problem as one of the tips.
Let me know.

Most dishwasher have a check valve at the pump to prevent water from backing into the dishwasher. If the pump is electric there is a rubber flat that may be gone or not working properly. If that is the case you need to replace the pump. If the pump is part of the motor assembly then the pump and motor will need to be replaced. One other thing to make sure of is that you have the drain hose looped to the top od the dishwasher and then to the disposal conection. Its called a drain loop and all dishwashers should have it. Good Luck

the larger motor housing underneath the unit is what moves the water around to wash, the smaller pump is the drain pump, if you don't hear that running it is likely in need of replacement. check your paper work for warranty, if it's out of warranty try to find a deal online and it's relatively easy to replace

Hello Jamie Wolz - Try resetting the unit either by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes. Make sure the rinse aid dispenser is filled and check that the incoming water temperature is not less than 120 F. Restart unit and select normal cycle. If it proves to be ineffective, contact a professional to move forward accurately. The dishwasher may be experiencing a wiring failure or a communication error with the control panel.
