Lousy Frigidaire dishwasher

The bottom of the dishwasher fills up - I was told it wasn't draining properly, but the serviceman that installed the dishwasher also installed t he new garbage disposal. Now, the only thing that stays on is the "rinse" light and the dishwasher will not work.... I must say this is the worst dishwasher I have ever owned.

Dishwaher does not drain cmpletely ?


Hello friend, thanks for your post!

I see you are having difficulty with your Frigidaire dishwasher not draining. Check the filter at the bottom of the dishwasher because if that gets clogged then it will not allow your dishwasher to drain properly. Additionally, check to assure that the sump pump is hooked up correctly to allow proper siphoning of your dishwasher. If that is correct it could be a potential problem with your control panel or drain pump and I would recommend consulting with a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. I hope this helps to some degree. -Matt

Won't Fill and will attempt to run wash cycle when turned off and door is closed


Hello ddux97 - I understand your dishwasher has power but will not fill with water. Here are a few simple troubleshooting tips that may help you resolve this issue:

• Make sure water supply is turned on. (First check for shut off valve under the kitchen sink).

• Check the house circuit breaker or fuse box, reset circuit breaker or replace fuse.

• Check inlet hose and make sure it's not twisted.

• Does float overfill protector (mushroom shaped object in tub) move freely? This is located in the bottom left front corner of the dishwasher.

• If this is a new install, then make sure the unit is not pressed up against the cabinet and the fill tube is not squeezed closed.

• Make sure the electrical wires going to the water inlet valve have not come off. It is best to turn off power to the dishwasher before reconnect wires, it doesn't matter which terminal is off both need to be connected.

• Make sure the drain hose is installed correctly. If the drain hose is routed under the floor as the dishwasher fills water can be drawn from the tub and appear to have never filled.

• Some models of Frigidaire dishwashers use a water pressure switch that will shut off the water valve if the tub over fills. These models do not have floats.

I hope these troubleshooting tips help you in some small way.

As a homeowner call a serviceman. Otherwise as a serviceman familiar with operational safety, remove the front kick plate cover at the bottom of the unit and then with a flashlight find exactly where the leak is coming from. The door seal or the drain pump? The intake hose or the drain hose? Determine if the unit is filling or draining or washing when the leaking starts. Then we can determine how to fix it.

Frigidaire gallery dishwasher model#DGHD2433KF1 water droplets remaining on top lower water not draining all the way leaving an odori


Two things to consider....clean water or dirty water?

Clean water usually indicates the fill valve is not shutting off all the way and the fill valve is "weeping" water in all the time = new fill valve time!!

Dirty water usually is not a dishwasher problem but more of a plumbing issue. Often the sink drain that carries the sinks water outside is not fast enough and some of this sink water is backing up into the drain hose and filling up the dishwasher through the drain hose. The drain from the sink to outside needs attention as this type of a problem indicates a slow house drain for that sink.

The dishwasher drain line should be clamped to the top underneath part of the counter before entering the sink drain plumbing, this may help the water from coming back inside the dishwasher.

Model: Frigidaire GPDB998JC0 It fills and drains


Check your water level to see if the water valve is even filling up properly. After starting the cycle, listen when the water fillup begins and ends. Open door and see if there is enough water at the bottom. Should fill up to the float valve. If there is not enough water, the valve needs to be replaced. Costs about $25 and can be replaced diy if you are handy with pushing back the hose clamp and undoing and redoing the water line connection.
Make sure you unplug the electric, and shut off the water before you even want to look behind the toe plate. Dishwashers have high electric hazard behind the toe plate..

Fisher & Paykel double dishwasher bottom dishwasher starts to fill with water then a noise comes on and a flashing F2


F2 is indicating a fault for the motor. This motor has 2 directional operations. One direction of rotating for spraying water for washing. The other for draining at the end of washing cycle. I don't think it is a problem with the motor, but there is some food clogging up its rotation path causing this issue. Need to take out the bottom stainless steel exposing the motor to clean up. I do this some times. Just need to pay attention to remove and put things back properly. Now if you are not comfortable in doing it, then call F&P serviceman. Don't call any handyman, since without knowledge about this dishwasher a person can do more harm than good and you know who will take care of the bill. Good luck.

My Frigidaire dishwasher doesn't drain completely after it cycles through completely. This is a new dishwasher just installed it a couple days ago.


Drain line/air gap
A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.

Pump
Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support.Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up the pump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replace them.

Drain valve and/or solenoid
Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.


Timer
Part of what the timer does is control the motor and drain valve. If the timer doesn't work properly, the water may not drain and you need to replace the timer. This problem is uncommon.

Once my dishwasher completed the cycle there is no water but after two or three days the bottom of the dishwasher fills with the dirty water. what could be the reason? I have garbage disposal and one pipe...


You must have your dishwasher connected directly to the garbage disposal and not through an air gap. What is happening is when you disposal fills with water it is siphoning through the drain hose back to the dishwasher. If you sink has a spare hole on the deck install air gap and run dishwasher drain through air gap first. Otherwise make sure you run Garbage disposal often so that water does not get slowed and build up inside.
