Question about Frigidaire FPHD2491KF Dishwasher
When starting a load the Frigidaire FPHD2491K control panel seems to work as expected but the start/cancel button doesn't activate, and system goes back into standby. The water temp is above 120deg. What's preventing it from starting?

This is very likely due to a bad main electronic control board but the only way to know for sure is to do some electrical testing with a volt/ohm meter and the wiring diagram located within the appliance. If possible use the meter and the wiring diagram to check input/output voltages looking for discrepancies between the diagram and the actual meter readings.

Go to the fuse pannel and trip the fuse breaker off and then put it on again. It will reset the automatic cycle. Vitally

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

Hello bamspry - From what you are describing if only the China/Crystal icon is working, then the dishwasher could possibly be experiencing a communication problem coming from the main control panel or wiring failure. If I was in your position, I personally will recommend consulting a professional to move forward accurately and to assist with the repair(s).

Hello Mike Brady - From what you have described it seems like the dryer is experiencing a wiring failure or a communication error with the control board. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

If the unit is washing properly, as far as you can tell, but it won't stop spinning, then I would have a professional look at the control panel and timer to be diagnosed because there seems to be in miscommunication.

To recall an error code,
Wake the machine by pressing any button
Wait 5 seconds
Press and hold the Start and Pause Cancel buttons
Ail LEDs will go blank and after a few
seconds the control will signal the stored code using audible beeps and
blinking LEDs. The control will repeatedly signal the code, as long as the Start and Pause Cancel buttons
A two-second pause between repeats affords you the ability to make accurate
counts to identify the correct error
You may also have a code
such as E47 or E24 etc..
back with the code and I will explain what is
the meaning of the code
