Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

I have a frigidaire built in dishwasher, about 5 years old. Model #FDBL960BB0. I had a clogged sink which caused my dishwasher to back up. Had the drain unclogged, went to start my dishwasher, it's making the regular cycle noise but is not filling with water. Is there some sort of safety switch that needs to be reset before it will fill with water?

    Thanks so much!!!! I had some dried detergent under the float. I cleaned it out, and on it's working like a charm. Thanks for the helpful advice.

Hi Monique,

By any chance is your kitchen sink draining slowly? If the main drain is clogged it will back-up all the way to the dishwasher. Try using 2-Second Plumber or a similar product with a CO2 blast to clean the whole drain first.

Sink backs up with water when running faucet,dishwasher does not drain,all pipes under sink clear


We had this problem and found out that the pipe leading away from the house was clogged. Have a plumber look (with a camera) down your clean out, and see if that is the problem. They can snake it from the clean out and clear out tree roots or whatever is the problem.

What would cause my dishwasher not to drain?


not sure if you have posted the model number of your dishwasher.

There are several reasons for dishwasher not to drain.

1. faulty drain pump
2. clogged kitchen sink drain
3. drain cycle is not reached due to faulty dishwasher controller
4. clogged drain hose
5. the wash cycle is not completed due to heater not heating water - (try rinse cycle to confirm)

Happy to help if you can provide some details on when the drain cycle is not working. do you get any alarms on dishwasher..etc.

Doesn't drain on final rinse cycal, leaves 1" of clean water in bottom of machine.


Make sure your drain hose is attached securely to the underside of counter/sink area. If you have a air/gap, make sure it isn't clogged. Both will cause water to backfill back into the dishwasher especially if you're garbage disposal is clogged or restricted.

The GE Profile Dishwasher does not drain completely. The bottom drain shows no obvious clog and the screens are clear. The overflow drain in the back of the washers the only reason the dishwasher does not...


Uncouple the drain hose connection under the sink and use a wet/dry vacuum to **** out the drain hose and the stub on the sink drain plumbing to clear any possible clogs. There may be a blocked check valve near the pump that might have to be cleaned or replaced. Check the hose itself for any kinks or collapsed section. There might be a damaged drain impeller on the pump. Hope this helps!

MY DISHWASHER IS NEW DISHES ARE DIRTY AFTER WASHING


Check the screen in the bottom of the washer for debris. Remove the screen and clean out the impeller with your hand or an old toothbrush. Also check your vent hose coming out of your garbage disposal. This can clog and cause problems. Hope this helps your problem.

Can't find the model number on Frigidaire dishwasher


The nomenclature should be located on the left side on the inside of the tub right by the front when you open the door. It is most likely an fdb series example fdb1050. however the drain hose pn 154606701 is the factory replacement for most frigidaire dishwashers ten years or less.

Dishwasher not rince & when cycle ends not clear water remains


check the drain connection where it connect to the sink these are bad to clog. In your case it may be a partial clog also check for any kinks in the drain line.make sure your line go above the connection point and then back down .This will stop water from flowing from the sink.
You can take apart the pump usually torx screws and remove any debris. Do this last
