I'm not sure what combination of these steps fixed the problem but its fixed none the less.

As mentioned above i removed the screws at the top of the door removed the top cover. I disconnected the power connector (white) and reconnected. I removed the latch assembly cycled the latch a few times pushed the connectors on the bottom snuggly on. Reassembled the top and the replaced the screws.

After closing the door...all the lights were blinking?? No No its ok..

Place the dial on rinse only and press dry and start/cancel. This will place the dishwasher in a maintenance mode. It will cycle through all the cycles in a short amount of time.

After all of that it started up just fine. Like i said I'm not sure what part of this process made this all work I'm just putting it all out there and i hope it helps someone else with the same problem...

Try running the hot water in your kitchen sink until the dishwasher kicks on.

no name 2's solution worked great for us so far. It took me while to figure out how to disconnect the two connectors, so I thought some pictures might help._13.png_12.png

Most likely the door switch is not making proper contact when you shut the door or the Start button is faulty. Needs someone to look in the door panel to fix.

Start button not working

Good Morning Friend, thank you for your post!

I see that your Frigidaire dishwasher has power but will not start a cycle. Let's try resetting your dishwasher by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is best to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn on your dishwasher. Confirm that the door is securely closed and select a cycle. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, it could potentially mean a number of things: a potential wiring failure, faulty door latch assembly or control board. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose your dishwasher to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

Best regards! - Z

Blinking lights on frigidaire dishwasher

Hello - Try resetting the dishwasher by disconnecting the power to the unit. This will clear most flashing lights. You can disconnect power by flipping the circuit house breaker off and back on for approximately two minutes. If this does not prove to be successful, contact a professional to move forward accurately. Dishwasher could possibly have a faulty control board or wiring failure.

Kenmore Ultra Wash 665 dishwasher: start button not lighing

It sounds like you have a bad control console, and the problem is that your START button (the most critical one!) is bad. You can't replace just that button or key; you have to replace the entire control console.

Clean button is flashing


Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes, pauses, and then repeats. When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...

-high temp wash

-heated dry

Frigidaire Dishwasher Energy Star blinking lights.

Hmmm...don't know why this worked, but it did. When the lights were flashing when I tried to start my Frigidaire dishwasher model#FDB1500LF, nothing would happen...just blinking lights, so I went to the house electrical panel, found the switch for the dishwasher, turned off & on again, and now the dishwasher works.
Go figure.

Frigidaire Dishwasher (model FDB1050REB0) Wash Light Flashing

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


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.


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!

Wont start

The lights flash when the door is not shut all the way, or the sensor that detects that the door is shut is not sensing the door is shut. Try pushing in on the door while hitting the start button.
