Question about Frigidaire 24 in. FDB635RF Built-in Dishwasher

2 Answers

My soap won't dissolve during the cycle.

I am using a fdb750rcb frigidaire. The soap I am using is cascade action packs. When I run a cycle everything functions normally as far as I know except when I open the door to the washer, the soap packet is unused. The door to soap dispenser is open but the soap is unused. I have used three different packets all with the same result. At first I thought it was maybe old soap but I put the soap in a cup of water and it dissolved in less then a minute. Any help you would be able to provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

    I also have the problem with the soap not dissolving. I tried using liquid soap and it to was just dumped onto the plates below and hardened. If i use a packet soap I find it at the bottom of my dishwasher in one piece still...

You are not getting enough water or you are losing the water during wash cycle. Is you dishwasher new or older? How is it plumbed in? If it is plumbed through the floor you will have to put and air gap in to keep the water in it. All tall tub dishwasher have to be plumbed properly.

Make sure that your utensils are not keeping the door from opening. just a bread knife in the bin leaning out can get between the detergent door and the trays.

Dishwasher soap is not dissolving.


Hello,
Try emptying the dishwasher and putting a few tablespoons of vegatable oil in the bottom. Run the cycle without soap and no dishs. Often dish soap (palmolive) builds up and creates soap suds that won't go away during a normal cycle. The oil binds with the soap residue to get rid of it. It worked for my Kenmore. I know do it every few months. Good Luck!!!
Thanks

The soap holder is opening during the wash cycle but the soap tablet is not dissolving. Any ideas?


Is the water coming on? Is water hot enough? Is washer overloaded, water jets aren't hitting the soap? Maybe try a different brand of soap tablet? Run the dishwasher in "heavy soil" mode which will use hotter water and run for longer?

We use the Cascade tablets but they don't dissolve


Either:

1. the water does not get into the dishwasher open the dishwasher 3-4 times during cycle, you should see some water at least once, if not - check water valve, water level float and water pressure.
2. the pump is clogged - there is water, the motor will run but no water is circulated. Check pump filters, check chopper and impeller.
3. motor in main pump is not working - could be caused by something stuck on the impeller or chopper or could be a problem with the motor itself or control board. Check if line voltage is coming to the motor during wash/rinse cycle.

Good luck,

Soap does not seem to dissolve or clean


Probably a sticky dispenser door. Run for a few times with the dispenser open and put a tablet in the cultery basket
