    I would check the drain lines and pump first. Then see if you notice any issues with the control board connections.

SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: I have frigidaire dishwasher,starts cycle,can hear

Depending on your dishwasher, it fills either by a timer or by a water probe or float. I will assume its a timer as a probe or float wouldnt exhibit this behaviour. I would say you have a restriction in your water supply line. Check your valves, any screen filter in the water line for sand/scale/silicate/etc, pressure regulator if applicable. Another posibility is a poor magnet in your fill valve.

Try pouring water from the front. The pump has got air traps inside. This will ease your problem.

Also check whether the spray arm turns freely without any obstacles.

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

How do you reset the pump for this dishwasher


Hello friend, that's a great question!

To perform a manual reset on your Frigidaire dishwasher you would need to disconnect power to your appliance. The best way to do that is flip the household circuit breaker for roughly about ten minutes. Hope this is helpful. -Matt

Frigidaire FFB240 dishwasher won't stop


Good Morning AA1970,

I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# FFB240, continuing to run unless you shut it off. While I'm not familiar with this particular model number, I suggest that you give the appliance a hard reset. You will do this by shutting the power off at the circuit breaker for at least 20-30 minutes. After restoring power, run the cycle. If it is still continuing to run unless you shut it off, I suggest contacting a local authorized technician for further assistance.

-Best Regards-

Not shutting off


You don't indicate the model, but if it has a dial type timer and the unit is getting old, the dial timer motors have a tendency to weaken over time to the point where they just don't have the energy necessary to finish turning the timer any longer. The only fix at that point is either a new timer assembly (not cheap) or, and more preferably, a whole new dishwasher.

I have a year old kitchen aid dishwasher and during fill cycle it makes a thumping noise. The dishwasher every 5 or 10 seconds shuts off fill cycle then turns back on which I think is what's causing...


Drain Pump

If the dishwasher is loud during operation, the drain pump might be defective or might have some debris in it. This is a common problem.

Circulation Pump

If the dishwasher is loud during operation, and the noise is a continuous drone similar in speed to the circulation pump sound, it's likely that the circulation pump motor bearings have failed. Once this happens the circulation pump will have to be replaced, the bearings are not repairable.

Drain Impeller

If the dishwasher is loud during operation, the drain impeller might be broken, or there might be debris in the pump. Generally, to gain access to the pump the top of the pump housing will have to be removed.

Pump and Motor Assembly

If the dishwasher is loud the motor bearings, drain impeller or wash impeller might have worn out. All three of these components are part of the pump and motor assembly. It may be possible to replace one of the impellers, but the motor bearings cannot be repaired. In that case the pump and motor assembly will need to be replaced.

Wash Impeller

The wash impeller is a small, plastic blade. The motor spins the impeller forcing water through the spray arms to clean the dishes. If one or more blades has broken off of the impeller the dishwasher is loud. The impeller can also scrape against the pump housing if it is damaged, warped or bent.

Circulation and Drain Pump Motor

If the dishwasher is loud during operation, and the noise is a continuous drone similar in speed to the motor sound, it's likely that the circulation and drain pump motor bearings have failed. Once this happens the motor will have to be replaced, the bearings are not repairable.

Water Inlet Valve

The water inlet valve is an electrically controlled water valve. When it is new, the water inlet valve is very quiet. Over time, the diaphragm inside the valve deteriorates and deforms. This deformation interacts with the water rushing in and can cause a loud vibration, buzzing, squealing or other noises. If the dishwasher is loud during the filling cycle, replacing the water inlet valve may solve the problem.

Frigidaire dishwasher shuts off mid cycle


Hello - From what you are describing it appears that the unit is attempting to run the cycle, but the wash motor is not coming on. Either the wash motor has failed or there isn't any or isn't enough power supplied to the wash motor. I personally recommend contacting a service provider to accurately diagnosis the dishwasher and to assist with the repairs.

Fridgidaire/Electrolux dishwasher stuck knob


It definately sounds as though the motor in the timer assembly is dying, or the gears in the assembly are wearing down to the point that the gears can't turn the way they're supposed to. Replace the timer.

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.
