Frigidaire Dishwasher Problem

When I unload the dishwasher I know that there is no water in the bottom of the machine. After a few days, water starts to collect at the bottom of the dishwasher, so I run the cycle so that the water will drain out. If I don't run it, the water will continue to collect and will eventually start spilling out the door. Any help with this problem? Going to buy a new dishwasher soon because house and wood floor can flood and be ruined! Thanks.

Re: Frigidaire Dishwasher Problem

By the sounds of it.i think the water inlet valve that lets water into the machine has gone faulty leaving water slowly seep into the machine, you could either replace this valve..or a cheaper solution if you can access the rear of the machine most water supplies would have a small value installed on the incomming supply,you could simply turn off the water till the next time u need to use it.

My Frigidaire Dishwasher motor is not spinning rinse cycle

am not sure.. just try this
Check with a multi-meter for 115/220V on motor's tags.
If you don't get this voltage measurement, your problem is not with the motor.
In case you have 115/220V on motor's tags, try first to replace its brushes (2 carbon contacts that transfer the curent to the motor's armature).
try this good luck

Frigidaire dishwasher is not spraying water from bottom

From what you have described, sounds like the sprayer arms are possibly loose or being held into place and can't rotate, by dishware.

Frigidaire dishwasher model CDB@!%BXWO does not clean dishes properly

If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).

Also, There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.

**Water temperature Note***

To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.

Concerning the Film.(Disregard if this is not an issue)

This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside the dishwasher. Try cleaning you dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner. There are a few out there, Try Dishwasher Magic.

Frigidaire Dishwasher

This is a simple solution, the brass nut that connects the heating element to the base of the dishwasher is cracked and needs replaced. It takes just a few minutes to replace, just remove the nut after TURNING OFF THE POWER and take to your local parts store, they should have one in stock. You might have your model number with you.
