Re: Need service manual and wiring diagram
Ther are not many places for wires to be hanging from , it should be obvious where it should go, as far a leak the most common place is from the heater connecter(s) small brass lock nut on right side of unit, 2 of them holding the heater in. the brass is quite soft andusually cracks straight down the entire nut and needsto be replaced.

Hello. In most dishwashers, there is a special type of actuator device attached to the detergent dispenser to make the door open and then, during the rinse cycle, initiate the introduction of rinse agent into the tub. A wax motor (see the attached link below) is connected through a small wiring harness to the main control board. The name comes from how the motor operates--it has a slug of wax inside that, when heated, expands and pushes a lever which pops the latch on the dispenser door. Then, a two-position cam attached to the lever sets itself in position for the next actuation--the introduction of rinse agent. When the motor heats up the wax again, the cam allows the lever to push open the small valve on the rinse aid tank briefly so that a small amount of the liquid can drain into the tub and help remove excess water from the clean dishes during the rinse phase of the cycle. I hope I helped you! wax motor dishwasher image Google Search
You will need remove the door panel and look at the device directly behind the soap dispenser. It will have 2 wires to it. If the wires look OK and not unplugged, that little device will probably need replaced. Thats what opens the soap cup.
Thanks for your post, friend!
I see you would like to locate the ground wire on your Frigidaire dishwasher. I did locate the wiring diagram along with a parts breakdown for your model, FFBD2406NW. I hope this is helpful. -Matt
forget the built in rinse aid, it only works for a couple minutes during the whole wash cycle. go out and buy the rinse/aid or jet/dry package that hangs on the racks and works during the whole cycle. of course use only cascade powder soap and sparingly.
Sorry about the delay in time in getting back to your problem if not already resolved heres what you can try. Remove the bottom panel and run through a load, to see exactly where leak is coming from, most common place for leak is through the heater hold down brass nuts. They crack and need to be replaced
