Question about Frigidaire 24 in. FDB1050REC Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
I installed a Frigidaire dishwasher Model # FDB1050REM2 recently and it seems to run longer than I expected compared to my previous dishwasher. From beginning to end it runs nearly 2 hours on a "normal wash" setting. The water temperature at the sink faucet is 120+ so I don't think that's the problem. Is it normal that a dishwaher would take this long to run?
Checked water temperature at water heater. It was at 110 degrees. Turned water heater up to 125 degrees. Dishwasher works perfectly now.

I just replaced the bottom door gasket of my Frigidaire dishwasher model MDB421RFS3. The part number (154588201)of the gasket is the same as for the FDB125RHBO dishwasher. If you Google "Service Flash DW071" the link will take you to instructions for installing the gasket. There is nothing to take apart. You just remove the old gasket from the inner door channel by pulling it out by hand and then installing the new one.

Check to make sure you heating element has not failed. Dishwashers of today heat the water periodically through out the cycle and if the element has failed. The heating delay light is the indicator that tells you that it is trying to heat the water.

The most obvious failure would be the mechanical timer that is behind / part of the knob used to select the cycle.
But, you may want to inspect the heating element in the sump area -- some dishwashers will wait (and wait) for the water temp to come up high.

They weren't lyin', with the new improved energy effeciency and cleaning units they using more "soaking" times to losen food particles to use less water and clean better. And that they deffinitly do versus old units and they save more energy by doing this also. On some makes and models theywill have cycles that still use less time but also will then use some more water during this cycle. My SEARS store "blue crew" did research and found out this cycle for me.

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.
