Question about Frigidaire 24 in. FDB1050RE Built-in Dishwasher
The problem is that the dial gets stuck, and has to be manually advanced, in the same 2 positions every cycle. The first stoppage occurs very near the midpoint between Light Wash and Drying on the dial. According to the cycle chart it would appear that this falls between the 2nd wash and 3rd rinse or about 25mins. into a Light wash. The second stoppage occurs right on or just before the drying cycle starts or, according to the cycle chart, about 47mins. into a Light wash. My parents have the same dishwasher, so I tried switching the control panel, only to find the exact same problem at the exact same points. So I don't think its the timer, and don't know what else it might be. If you could give me any guidance I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in Advance,
Try turning off the high temp wash. I had a similar problem and found that the thermostat is bad. Turning off the high temp wash bypasses the high temp thermostat.

I know that you are going to think that this is dumb... but the only thing that it can really be is the timer....
I think that the extra tripper that it needs to activate with the heat is stalling it...

Tips for a great answer:
Welcome to FixYa
that the Timer is stuck, as everything else is working fine in the unit and the
dial ust gets stuck and so won't complete the cycle so the problem is with the
Timer motor going bad and needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have
any other questions.
