Frigidaire FDB1050REB2 Will Not Start

None of the buttons work. Somehow I can force the other buttons to light up by pressing two at a time, but this doesn't have any effect other than just lighting up, and the lights pop back off as soon as I release one of the buttons anyway. The 'Clean' light is still on from the last load of dishes. The door seems to latch all right ...

jamcdani Most likely the problem with your dish washer is bad key pad. It is not repairable and has to be replaced. Whirlpool does not sell it separate and you have to by the whole console assembly. The price range is between $95 and $115 (different colors) and it is not very complicated to replace it. I can help you with the complete step by step instructions and, if you provide the complete model number of your dish washer, I get the part number and the best price for you. Gendos post back...

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Dishwasher clean light ind flashing and won't start

That means the control sensed that the heater in the d/w did not operate 3 times in a row. so the unit locks out. First remove the kick plate and you may have to pull the unit out from under the cab, but check your heater. use a meter to see if it reads open, if so order a heater assy it will come with a new control replace it to. If your heater checks good press in sequence normal wash , heat dry ,normal wash,heat dry , normal wash , heat dry three times within 6 sec all the lights will come on then hit cancel. What that did is reset the control and clear that fault. Keep in mind that d/w does not heat it's own water your incoming water temp should be 120. the d/w will maintain that temp. when starting your d/w first turn on your hot water till it gets hot then start your d/w this insures your unit fills with hot water and not cold

You will have to reset the console. To do this, close the door and press these buttons in sequence...

-high temp wash
-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry

...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

No solution, just a big thanks about that tip on holding down that 'Heat-Dry' button. Worked like a charm.

Hi, I have a Frigidaire dishwasher, it has stopped working, when I put it on normal mode the "washing" light flashes but the machine does not start. Can anyone give some advice on how to fix? thanks,


Hello FJ, thank you for your inquiry!
I understand that your Frigidaire dishwasher is not working and all it does is flash the "washing" light. It sounds like a possible problem with your keypad or control panel. I would suggest performing a reset on your dishwasher and you can do that by flipping the household circuit breaker off for at least ten minutes. If that does not correct your issue I would recommend seeking assistance from a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you from purchasing unnecessary parts. -Matt

Green normal light is on but none of the buttons including start button work


Hello friend, thank you for your post!
I understand that the light on your Frigidaire dishwasher is lit as it normally is, except it will not operate. It is possible that your dishwasher may have an issue within the keypad or control panel. You can perform a reset, in the case that it is a miscommunication error within the dishwasher. You can reset the dishwasher by flipping the household circuit breaker off for at least ten minutes. If this does not help correct your issue I would recommend seeking assistance from a professional technician for a proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you avoid any unnecessary part purchases. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Light is on the lock icon. Can't get it off


Press and HOLD the lock button down. It toggles the lock feature when you hold the button down. The lock light went off and the unit works again.

I have a Frigidaire built in dishwasher that won't start. There is a light on by the 3 second lock button


Your dishwasher is in the lock mode. If you press the button on the dishwasher that has the lock for maybe 5 seconds , the light will go off. Then put the dishwasher in a wash cycle (normal) and your dishwasher should start up working. Make sure the door is all the way closed. Hear the click of the door when it shuts. After about 90 seconds it should have water in it, press the start/cancel button 2 times and the water drains out.
