Frigidaire Dishwasher FDB1050REC1 - Washing Indicator Light Blinking

I am currently having a problem with my dishwasher. It is less than a year old. Whenever I try to start a cycle by pressing the start/cancel button, the washing indicator light just blinks and it will not start. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Here is what happened, you pulled the door open without pressing cancel and allowing it to pump the water out, hence the "flooding in the bottom". This is just one reason why it maybe blinking, there is a water sensor in the bottom. If your dishwasher is hooked up properly to any decent garbage disposal, run the disposal for about 30 seconds to a minute. This should pump the water out, more like activate a light siphoning affect. It should work as normal. If you are not having luck with that, detach the DW drain get it low and let it siphon.

Make sure the water feed is open....although I don't know this make and model, a flashing light at the start of a program is usually always to do with a water feed problem....make sure there is sufficient water pressure at the hose (by closing the tap, removing the feed from the dishwasher and opening tap with hose in bucket) You will be surprised how many times a worn tap washer is to blame for low pressure. A stiff turning tap is always a sure sign of problems.... If the unit is a integrated model, make sure that when you close the door it "clicks"...if it does not activate the door switch properly, there could be a flashing light. Sometimes the integrated units "move" deeper into the enclosure, and the door will not close properly to activate the door switch. Oshie

Thank you for your inquiry, William Garrett!

I understand that the washing light on your Frigidaire dishwasher, FDB1050RES0, continues to blink and will not run. You may need to perform a reset on your dishwasher. In order to do so you would need to disconnect power from your dishwasher for roughly ten minutes. This will help clear out any false error codes or miscommunications within your dishwasher. If resetting your dishwasher does not resolve the issue you may need to have an electrical component replaced and I would recommend seeking professional assistance for that. Hope this is helpful. -Matt

Washing light is flashing and dishwasher won't start


First make sure that nothing is blocking the drain pump assembly located inside the lower front panel of the dishwasher. If the issue returns after its cleaned then it means that the control board has gone bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

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.

Runs forever! even on Normal !!

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.
