Question about Frigidaire 24 in. FDB421RF Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Dishwasher Repair I have a Frigidaire dishwasher that came with the house. The house and washer are probably about seven years old. It woked fine for the first few months but now, when I turn it on to wash it fills with water but then it will not go into wash cycle (i.e. there is no water sent into the dish compartment). It will go through every cycle by filling and emptying through wash and rinse but no water goes into the dish compartment. Is there a pump that is perhaps not working? How is the repair made?

Ebers, you have a seperate wash and drain motor on this model. When you remove the bottom panel the drain pump will be on the right and the circulation (wash) pump will be in the rear. You are going to have to verify that you have power getting to the wash motor. Sometimes this is difficult without removing the dishwasher. The motor may have a quick connect harness going to it that you can check voltage there. If you have voltage to the motor during the wash cycle and it's not running, well, there's the problem. If no voltage, then it's probably a timer issue. Catriver..post back

We had a major power surge go through the house now our dish washer doesnt work breaker is on power is there ?


You probably have a fried control board. Better call a repair technician. But if the dishwasher is more than about 8 years old, maybe it would make more sense to go shopping for a new dishwasher.

Remove the lower spray arm, the filter and the volute cover. Check for a foreign objects inside.

If there is nothing wrong then the pump & motor has to be replaced.

Burning Frigidaire dishwasher


After you turn off the power to your dishwasher, you can inspect the dishwasher with a flashlight to find where the melting happened. If it is near the circle that is the heating element, you can suspect the timer froze during the drying cycle.

But also open things up and look for shorted/melted wires (in the door panel and under the dishwasher.)

No matter what you find, if you have proof of purchase for your dishwasher, I would press for repair/replacement from the manufacturer.

Good Luck!

Welcome


My advice now a days is :

It's really not advisable to fix a dishwasher that old.
It's putting good money into bad!

Here is an article I just read that you may find interesting.



Repair or replace?
When to pull the plug on your dishwasher

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems in the owner's manual and on the Web sites of many manufacturers.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model? The answer depends mostly on the age of your dishwasher, how much you bought it for, and the cost of the repair. Follow these guidelines from our in-house experts:

When a repair makes sense. If your dishwasher is under warranty or less than four years old , paying for a repair makes sense. Note that dishwasher under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician; readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice. If your dishwasher is out of warranty and is four to seven years old, it might make sense to pay for a repair. Readers paid $100 to $200 for a repair. But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage, given that today's models are quieter and have added features. They pay for them selves in only a few years due to higher energy efficiency which is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008, are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace. The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new dishwasher. Our data also show that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive dishwasher six or more years old .
Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent of a dishwasher you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.

Fridge Problem


Hello mikemloy.
Welcome to Fixya

You said, your Fridge is 3-4 years old. It has power (the light works) but the motor does not run therefore its not getting cold. Is this likely to be a motor/compressor problem? if so is it worth fixing or should you just replace the unit.

It is only 3 or 4 years old and you bought it new?
I think it may be low on freon, and the compressor will not turn on under these circumstances.
A compressor does not usually go in 4 years!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Call Frigidaire and if it is the compressor you can ask them to replace it free cause it is only 3 years old. You would be surprised what the right person can do.
I deal with them every day.
They know it is harder to find new customers than to keep the ones you have!
It may only be only a bad thermostat.
I usually tell them I'm about to redo my kitchen and picked all frigidaire Pro steel apliances, BUT I"M NOT going to go with them if they do not make good on my new defective freezer!
( Be real nice and soft spoken and sweet. Not angry and insist, do not give in)

If so your good with a nominal repair.
Try this first, turn the fridge off at the switch inside . And then unplug the unit for 5 minutes.
It must be off at least 3 minutes is why I told you 5 minutes!!!
Some units will reboot their systems and start!


Let me know how it turns out!

Frigidaire Dishwasher leaking but not from door


hi there,
dishwasher leaking might be due to either of these causes, check these:

Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom
of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you.
But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the
entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from
leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher,
remove the:

* Lower rack
*Spray arm
* Spray arm support
* Wash/drain impellers

Then try the seal out of its housing and replace it.

Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly.
You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.

Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the
rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten
or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues
to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the
dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the
leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

DISASTER! PLEASE HELP. WOKE UP THIS MORNING & DISHWASHER MELTED!!!


Amsanta, sounds like something got hung up on the heating element, stopped the lower spray arm and things started to melt. The lower spray arm, part number, 154414101 is easy to change out. There is also a lower spray arm support 154294101, don't know if you will need that. I believe on your model the lower spray arm just snaps on. There is a tab on the filter screen that will rotate to unlock and the filter screen will lift out. Now the lower spray arm support is accessable. If it's less than a year old, you may be able to get it fixed under warranty. Catriver.
