Question about Frigidaire 24 in. FDB1050RE Built-in Dishwasher
I just worked the other day now when I press the start/cancel button to start the dishwasher all it does is flash the "washing" light...no water is coming into the unit. I've tried the breakers in the house, no luck. The unit is just over one year old...Any ideas? Thanks
Possible solution. I had the same problem of "washing" light flashing last year and now today. Warranty has been expired for awhile, so no harm in trying. What worked for my situation was removing the six screws for the back of the plastic control cover. Take of the plastic cover. There are are two connectors to the HANDLE with white and black wires. To be safe I would shut off the ciruit to the dishwasher. Safety first. Carefully disconnect and inspect the contacts inside the connectors. Do not insert any metal objects if you left the power on. I believe that the moisture from the dishwasher can degrade the connectivity. I cleaned the contacts with q-tips and re-installed. Be careful to not bend the contacts. If you had sound, you could hear my dishwasher running. Total cost is about three cents. I believe that the connectors do not full close when corroded, which prevents the completion of the circuit to the controlls. The flashing light indicates that the door is open, when in fact it is closed. Hopefully this will help someone. Semper Fi

No name 2's solution worked great for us so far. It took me while to figure out how to disconnect the two connectors, so I thought some pictures might help.

This totally works! I didn't even have to clean the connections, just tighten them. Thank you.
