Question about Frigidaire Dishwashers

Open Question

Ffbd2406ns0a Cant get through a full cycle without it leaking...a lot. Ive only had it a couple of months and its only been used a handful of times. The door gasket/door wiper down on the bottom of the door has a gap in the center of it that is missing, but the pictures I have seen online show that it seems to be made that way?

I had the same problem with my machine - ie lots of water coming out front about two thirds of the way through the cycle - engineer (local and very reliable) knew as soon as he came in that I had started bying Powerball 5 dishwasher tablets - they produce too much foam (try opening the door during the cycle and see the amount of foam) and it therefore comes out of the overflow parts on the door. I tried Magnum 5 and got the same problem. Now I stick to either Asda's own basic (not the 5) or I buy the Magnum ones and cut them in half. Has never leaked since!

SOURCE: Kenmore Ultra Wash 3 Leaking

Got a possible solution from a brilliant guy named Jake on another website and thought I would post it back here.

"Check the door vent on the inner side of the door, that should just snap out, I have seen those clog and start making more pressure inside to make it leak from the bottom. Jake"

I checked mine and got a nasty surprise. Who knew it could get so dirty.

SOURCE: Dishwasher leaks during rinse cycle

it sounds like you need to adjust the door latch so that the top of the door will close tighter. when in the rinse cycle try pushing door at top to see if leak stops. if that doesn't let you know something then you got me. you have changed all that i can think of. Good luck

Whirlpool WDF520PADM Clean Light not coming on when cycle is done?

Hello. The main control board is defective and its part number is W10650774. However, your unit should easily be under the manufacturer's warranty which covers parts and labor. The light is not from L.E.D.'s on the control panel but from lights mounted on the main board and channeled through plastic light pipes so they can be seen on the control panel. A lot of dishwashers have control panels with L.E.D.'s mounted on a circuit board and connected to the main board with a flexible wiring harness--yours isn't one of those types. Call for service so you won't violate the warranty! I hope I helped you!

18 month old kitchen aid kudc10fxss leaks water at bottom of door

Someone may've accidentally put liquid dishsoap rather than dishwasher soap into the fill cup. The bubbling will cause lots of foam to rise up above the float-switch without actually raising the switch (shutting off the water supply). Lots of helpers on the web recommended draining, wiping out the foam, pouring in a cup of vinegar and a handful of salt and running the rinse cycle a couple of times. It worked for me!

Dirty steaks on clothes at end of wash cycle.

Make up a couple of liters of a strong solution of hot water and Soda Crystals, pour that mix into the machine without any laundry in it and do couple of very hot washes

Change your soap powder to one of the old fashioned ones for a month or so and see how you get on.

Cold washing tends to leave body fats and other greases inside the machinea s there is little to break them down in "Modern" powders

Soap dispenser flap not opening

Not a solution but exactly the same problem. I should have sent the machine back (I bought mine about 2008 too) but by now, 2010, the machine is a complete waste of time and money. The soap dispenser fails to open every time, wasting money, water and my patience because I then have to hand wash after all. will try the suggested oil trick, but it was obviously a bad design to start with.

you need to access your drain pump and check it for an obstruction but when you pull the hose off keep in mind it might have a lot of water in it i usually use a shop vac and pull all the water out through the drain hose before removing the hose or opening the pump sorry i cant be more specific but ive never cleaned the pump on a hoover
