Hello - The issue may lie with the door latch; a door switch is used to start and stop your dishwasher. It's a safety feature that won't allow water to flow with the door open. With a faulty door switch, there is a chance your dishwasher won't start at all. Dishwasher door switches are about an inch long. They are usually black but can be red. There are metal prongs on the body of the switch called terminals. Some door switches have two terminals and some have three. If your door switch is OK, check the timer assembly. This controls when and how long power is sent to other controls on your dishwasher. If these controls don't receive power, they won't work. The timer assembly contains a motor. Check this motor as well. It is often cheaper just to replace the timer motor rather than the complete assembly. My last suggestion is to check the cycle selector switches. These switches indicate cycles for washing, drying, and setting the temperature of the water. If one of your switches is the problem your dishwasher may also prevent the unit to start. Dishwasher cycle selector switches tell the timer which cycle to run by opening and closing electrical circuits. Most selector switches are six to eight inches long. They are usually black and have terminals. By testing each one of these parts with an ohmmeter you should be able to determine why your dishwasher is not working. It is possible for other parts to fail but these are the most common parts to check. If any proves to be ineffective, I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.

Fixing a Frigidaire Dishwasher (FMB33ORGCO)


Hello Paulus!

From what you have described your Frigidaire dishwasher is will not start and you have performed a reset. This could be a possible issue within your control panel or wiring harness. Since it could be an issue within the electric components I would suggest you speak with a professional technician, they would have the appropriate tools needed for proper disassembly of your dishwasher. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

My Electrolux FDB1100 will not fill with water


The most common culprit is the water inlet valve. It's located underneath the dishwasher, near the front, over towards the left. You'll see your water line going to it.

Frigidaire dishwasher fdbb2840ec0 cancel button doesn't work


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that the cancel button is not working on your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# FDBB2840EC0. I also see that your appliance will start, but has to fully cycle before stopping, even though the start and cancel button are the same. I suggest resetting your dishwasher, by shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 20-30 minutes. Restore power and run any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your washer status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Frigidaire dishwasher starts then stops


Good Afternoon Friend,

I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire dishwasher running for about a minute and then stopping. With this occurring, I would suggest resetting your appliance. You will do this by shutting the power off at the circuit breaker for at least 20-30 minutes. After power has been restored, make sure that your dishwasher door is fully closed and latched. If your dishwasher is still stopping after a minute, I would recommend contacting an authorized technician for further assistance. Hope this helps.

-Best Regards-

Frigidaire PLD4460REC Dishwasher will not start


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.
