Question about Frigidaire 24 in. FDB1050REC Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

How long is the dishwasher designed to run?

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?

SOURCE: Frigidaire dishwasher bottom door gasket replacement

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.

Good Luck!

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.

SOURCE: 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.

Hi Bill, this is AP

Based on the symptoms you are describing on how your Frigidaire dishwasher, model PLD2850, is performing I would think that your dishwashers control board could be causing this to happen. Your dishwasher should wash without stopping for longer periods of time. Regrettably, this is not a simple DIY job. I would highly recommend reaching out to an expert technician to ensure the appropriate replacement part is ordered and is installed correctly to prevent future issues. I hope this information helps to some degree - thanks for your question, and please do not hesitate to reconnect.

You will have some water at the bottom, as stated in the owner's manual. However if you have more than 1.5 inches, you have a drainage problem.

Call Frigidaire and explain that you never used it till today because it was in storage from day one. that you had to ship out to Iraq! now your home and it came out of the box dead!!!!!!

For this problem you will need to use factory service!

Here is the service company I refer my appliance customers too!

If this dryer is 10 years old or more do not spend any money on it!
The new ones are much more efficient! If you have to replace it buy a Speed Queen , it will do 8 loads a week for 25 years!
It's the last washer and dryer I will ever buy!!!! And less expensive than a top of the line unit!


Good luck!

thats sure can be the problem, especially since you had 2 machines with the same problem??? whats the chances of that.?? check your installation of drain hose. correctly done the hose MUST wrap up and back down the side of d/w created what is called HIGH LOOP(prevents siplhoning of water out and would help with debris flowing back through. make sure your cleanig the disposer frequently sounds like your backing up into d/w for sure
