    I think it was a popcorn kernel obstructing the valve keeping it opened. After cleaning the bottom of the dishwasher and physically putting water and then running the dishwasher thru it's drain cycle a couple of times it finally dislodged.

    Thanks for the info.

It sounds like the float may be stuck in the upright position, the float is what tells the machine that the water is at the leval required to cycle, and I recently had the same thing happen to mine. The float is a movable plastic part that does exactly what it sounds like, it floats higher as water enters the machine and when the float reaches a certain leval it cuts the water off , "so you don't have a flood. Look at the bottom of your machine for a movable piece that goees up and down, it more than likelly is stuck in the up position. Meanwhile I'll look for a diagram for your machine

Dishwasher runs too long


Good Morning Tessa,

I understand that your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# FDB700BFC, is running too long. I also see that it seems to be getting stuck on one particular cycle and runs continuously for hours even though the water is hot. It sounds like there is possibly a miscommunication between the different boards inside your appliance. I please ask that you try resetting your dishwasher, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 20-30 minutes. Once power is restored, try running any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-
WP

Dishwashers tend to get stuck on wash cycle if the water temperature is not reaching the level the wash program expects it to reach. This could be due to faulty heater or thermostat or both.

One test is to run the dishwasher on a rinse cycle (normal water temperature) and see if it completes it.
Refer this site for location and cost of heater and thermostat

Dishwasher not running through entire wash cycle


If I understand right, you saying no/little water is entering the washer?

First, look for the float switch valve.
Here's an example of what you're looking for:

http://appliancejunk.com/forums/gallery/1_12_08_07_8_34_08.jpg

It's the item in the lower right, with the spoon stuck under it.
If this float is stuck/hung-up in the UP position, it won't allow water to flow, as it senses that the water level is already at maximum.

Try to lift yours and see if it freely drops back down on it's own.
Sometimes they get gummed up and stick, or get pulled up and tilted a little, or have something (like a spoon) stuck under them.

I have a whirlpool DU1145 dishwasher that seems to be stuck on the same cycle. It shows it as sensing and washing at the same time and never shuts off. HELP! WHat could becausing this??


Sounds like your Touch Pad on the Control Panel is defective.

You can try and remove the 120 Volt AC power from the Dishwasher by turning it off at your Main Electrical Power Panel with the Circuit Breaker (15 or 20 amp) labeled: Dishwasher .

Leave the Dishwasher turned "Off" for 10 minutes. This will allow the control circuits on the Dishwasher to reset. Turn on the Dishwasher and press Cancel and attempt to Drain the Dishwasher. If this works...then try to enter a Rinse Only cycle and if that works... then attempt to enter a Wash Cycle.

If you still have your original problems then you probably have a defective:
(1) Touch Pad Assembly (or possibly a defective)
(2) Electronic Control Module (ECM)

The water was turned off while the dishwasher was running and now it seems to be stuck and not progressing through the cycle


Switch of the plug switch and try. Or add water from the front by opening the door and run the cycle.

Hi, Your dishwasher may pre-heat the water. If so, and if the water entering the dishwasher is cool, the heater may take up to half an hour to heat the water. To avoid the wait, increase the incoming water temperature before turning on the dishwasher. Do that by running the kitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase the temperature of the hot water to the entire house at the hot water heater.
Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.

Water does not enter dishwasher during wash cycle


Make sure the under-sink valve is turned on. Then suspect the water solenoid valve under the front may have an open coil or stuck shut valve.

Running time of dishwasher


he cycles times are too long If your dishwasher's cycle times are too long, check these:

Water pre-heating
Cycle not completing
Water pre-heating Your dishwasher may pre-heat the water. If so, and if the water entering the dishwasher is cool, the heater may take up to half an hour to heat the water. 

To avoid the wait, increase the incoming water temperature before turning on the dishwasher. Do that by running the kitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase the temperature of the hot water to the entire house at the hot water heater.

Warning! To lessen the risk of scalding, don't set the hot water heater temperature higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Cycle not completing See "The cycle doesn't complete" section. 

The cycle doesn't complete If the cycle doesn't complete, check these:

Water-heating cycle
Timer
Water-heating cycle Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next, depends, as follows:

  • On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time.


  • On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too.


Timer Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.
