It is very possible that something could be obstructing the main pump. But, first. Does your dishwasher fill with enough water? When full, the water level should fill to just below the heating element. You can check this by waiting for the fill cycle to stop and the normal wash cycle to begin. Open the door and check the water level. If your dishwasher isn't getting enough water, you could have a bad fill valve, or the inlet water line could be kinked. If this isn't the case, then suspect that you might have a clogged pump. Food particles such as popcorn kernels, orange or lemon seeds, small chicken bones and glass are notorious for getting into the pump screen area and obstructing the water flow (some of the other items I have found are labels off jars, bottle top seals, twist ties, rib bones, hair scrunchies, and yes - even band-aids!). Even though some dishwasher manufacturers advertise some amazing capabilities of their dishwashers, you still need to scrape your dishes of all food particles as much as possible. This does not mean you have to pre-wash prior to loading them. Anything that doesn't get dissolved by the wash cycle and detergent will end up sitting in the pump well. If the pump isn't able to pump enough water, your dishwasher will fill normally, but the spray arms will not turn, detergent does not dissolve and your dishes will not come clean. To get to the pump, you need to remove the lower spray arm and the coarse screen (located directly under the lower spray arm). The pump well should be located under the coarse screen. Look for anything that may restricting the water flow. I hope this helps and it's easy fix for you.

By chance have you cleaned the spray arm out lately? There could be something blogging the water from getting into the arm. In most dishwashers, the arm only spins because water pressure makes it spin.

SOURCE: Washing light flashes on Frigidaire FDB1050REM dishwasher

1) Turn off the breaker to the machine.

2) Wait 30 seconds and then turn it back on.

3) All the lights will be flashing. At this point turn the dial to "rinse only" and then press "Heat dry" and "Start/Cancel" at the same time.

4) The Machine will go into maintenance mode going through all the cycles quickly.

5) After this is finished the problem should be solved.

SOURCE: Our Frigidaire Ultra Quiet II dishwasher loud buzzing noise- wash

No longer "ultra quiet" huh?

A sound during certain cycles indicates a broken part. By the information provided sounds like a pump may be the problem. You may need to contact a service tech about this issue. If the appliance still under warranty, the service should be provided for free.

Every time when you hear noises (other than the normal ones) in the appliance, it indicates there is something wrong and it will worsen over time, so as soon you hear something is not ok, get assistance.

Frigidaire dishwasher fills but then the motor is not running for the wash cycle


Hey Gary, thank you for your inquiry!
From the information you have provided your Frigidaire dishwasher fills with water and then the motor will not run to complete the cycle. This could be an issue within the control panel or motor of the dishwasher. Which lights are flashing on the control panel of the dishwasher? Can you provide me with your model number as well? Once I have that additional information I would be able to assist you. -Matt

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

"ERR" is flashing and it makes sounds like it washing dishes.


Hello derekwaynemo - Could the dishwasher be flashing "ER"? If so, it typically indicates that the unit has shorted out the control panel. This can happen by excess moisture getting into the control area. Let the unit dry for 24 hours with no use, and see if the display error code erases itself. If it does not, this unit will require the repair of a professional to move forward accurately.

Fills with water then all leds flash no wash but will pump out


If the unit is filling up and pumping out water, as far as you can tell, but the lights and power to the control panel are not constant, then I would have a professional look at the control panel and timer because there seems to be a miscommunication.

Indesit Dishwasher not washing properly or draining


Could be a few problems here. The main one may be the timer. Generally the timer will tell each part to do what it needs to do and when, if it is not closing relays then you get a dishwasher full of dirty dishes. I would also check the pump to make sure it is operating properly. But I would venture a guess at the timer being the main problem.

Frigidaire dishwasher noticeably louder - circulation motor?


Try to position the machine, so that you can run the cycle and watch the dish washer. Remove the back panel and hear the sound of origination. Take suitable action as per your convenience. You can clean & replace the bearings if they are worn or replace as a whole unit.

Frigidaire dishwasher model GLD2445RFCO is making noise


I have the same problem with my dishwasher. If you remove the kick plate while it is running, There is an electric motor underneath. If you push up and pull forward on the electric motor, the noise will stop. I used a block to prop it up and the noise stopped. You may want to try it.

Frigidaire Dishwasher (model FDB1050REB0) Wash Light Flashing


Well, I've got a different problem. I need a control module!!!

BUT!

The flashing WASH light appears to indicate the door latch (switch) is not fully engaged. I proved that I mine which works, just doesn't pump out/drain water. If I unlatch the door and then press START, the WASH light blinks.

*WARNING* 120V ELECTRICAL CURRENT! ONLY ATTEMPT THIS IS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING!

The switch is located behind the control panel (5 screws from the inside.) The Hot (Black) AND Neutral (White) wires comes from the electrical input and pass through the switch. You can do a simple continuity check with the power disengaged to test the path through the switch and into the control module (pins 3 & 9m black and white).

Now... anyone have a Control Module (working) they want to give/sell to me so I don't have to go buy a new dishwasher? I just replaced the drain valve on mine :( If you do, you can send me a note vidioteic (at) gmail (dot) com

Happy Washing!
