Question about Frigidaire Dishwashers

1 Answer

The door to my dishwasher will not close tightly.

I have checked the load, the basket placements, and the latch and handle. I have tried to close the door multiple times, but it just won't snap shut, and thus, I cannot use the unit.

Latch is not tight when closed


Something must be blocking the door from fully engaging. Pull the loading racks out and put them back after checking they are on track and roll freely. Good luck.

The door wont shut properly


see this causes and use the common sense.God bless you
When your dishwasher door has a problem, check these: Latch Springs Hinges Door seal Latch The latch on many dishwashers is adjustable. If your door is easy to close but difficult to latch, adjust the latch to let the door close more easily. If you can't see any way to adjust the latch, yours may be fixed in a certain position. Check for other reasons for the latching problem. If the latch has worn out in a way that makes it impossible for you to close the door properly, you probably need to replace the latch. Springs Your dishwasher has two springs that counterbalance the weight of the door. If either or both of these are broken, the door feels quite heavy and you need to replace both springs. Hinges The hinges are important to the door closing properly. If they're bent or deformed, you probably need to replace them. Once bent, only rarely can they be straightened well enough. Door seal If your dishwasher is new--or if you have just replaced a door seal--the door may be difficult to latch for a week or two. If the tightness persists, though, try adjusting the latch, if it's adjustable. If it's not adjustable, there's probably nothing you can do immediately. But try running the dishwasher on the highest heat cycle to help the seal conform to the door. Otherwise, the seal should compress over time.

Wil not fill with water


  • Check that the water supply is turned on. The valve may be located under the sink.
  • Check the door latch
  • Test the door switch
  • Inspect the float assembly
  • Inspect the fill tube for kinks
  • Test the float switch
  • Check the inlet valve filter screens
  • Test the water inlet valve
  • Test the drain valve lever arm
  • Check the drain valve
  • The door latch pulls the door tightly closed to prevent water leakage around the door. It is also designed to prevent operation while the door is open. The door latch works in concert with the door switch to ensure that the door is tightly closed and latched. The door switch is a separate part from the door latch and is found inside the cabinet. The switch is off when the door is open. Depressing the switch closes the circuit and enables dishwasher operation. Closing the door does not depress the switch all the way. Only when the door is closed and latched, does the door fully depress the switch.
    If the door latch is not properly aligned it may not pull the door tightly closed and the door switch will not be fully depressed. Unless the switch is fully depressed the dishwasher will not operate.
    It is a simple matter to determine whether the door latch is the problem. Simply open the door, close the latch and select a cycle and depress the switch. Note that if the test is successful, with the door open, the dishwasher will operate and water may spray out. Make sure to first remove all tools from inside the dishwasher. Do not reach inside the dishwasher during the test. Now, inspect the cabinet where the door makes contact with it and locate the door switch. It may have a protruding button or spike or more likely it is a hole with a piece of metal or plastic inside it. You must fully depress that switch. If the switch is recessed, then use a non-conductive object, such as a wooden pencil, to depress the switch

    PDW8100 Dishwasher went through cycle several times, but I am unable to open the door. Is there a way to get it open? Thanks, Barbara


    Hi,

    When your dishwasher door has a problem, check these:

    Latch
    Springs
    Hinges
    Door seal
    Latch The latch on many dishwashers is adjustable. If your door is easy to close but difficult to latch, adjust the latch to let the door close more easily. If you can't see any way to adjust the latch, yours may be fixed in a certain position. Check for other reasons for the latching problem.

    If the latch has worn out in a way that makes it impossible for you to close the door properly, you probably need to replace the latch.

    Hinges The hinges are important to the door closing properly. If they're bent or deformed, you probably need to replace them. Once bent, only rarely can they be straightened well enough.

    what part? Frigidaire Dishwasher FDB1050REC. Dishwasher goes through cycle but then light gets stuck on "CLEAN". I turn off and on the circuit breaker. Three lights flash on the control pad. I press start/cancel and the light off and I can then start another cleaning cycle again like normal. Of course I can't do this every time I want to use the dishwasher. But I have noticed that if I press cancel during the "DRY" phase (DRY light is on), before it gets to "CLEAN". I can use the machine again no problem. In essence, I have to catch it while the "DRY" light is on, before the clean light goes on. I have run into this problem before and here is a detailed step by step description: The first time this happened, I was told that it was a control board problem so bought a new one, installed it but it did not work. Someone the suggested that it was a door latch problem. I then replace the door latch and it worked!! A year later the same problem occurred so I replaced it with a new one again,thinking that if it solved the problem the first time then it should again. Unfortunately it did not work. So I tried putting back the original control board and it worked again. So this time it seemed to be the control board. Worked for another few months until I smelled something burning. After that the machine did not work and it is at the stage that I described above. Are you able to help diagnose the problem? Could it be the wires were over heated? If so that would be of great help. Hopefully my description is detailed enough. Many thanks, Edward
