Question about Frigidaire Dishwashers

1 Answer

Frigidaire dishwasher model # fphd2491kfo has standing water in bottom after the wash cycle is complete

I pulled the washer out and took the water pump off, with the house currnet supplied to the pump, it ran fine. It looks like there may be a sensor in the drain, kinda like and electronic switch that would turn the pump off after the water drops off below this level to turn the pump off at the end of the cycle. I'm only guessing at this, the only other answer would have to be the timer, the pump has to be working, because if not the 6 + - gallons of water it uses during the wash cycle would be everwhere. All of the drain lines and the drain water filters are clear. Help please.

Hi Bill Walters - Generally speaking, the drain pump receives power directly from the main control board. If you have verified that the drain pump does not work then more than likely it is not getting power or the drain hose is restricted. If the drain hose is attached to an in-sink garbage disposer, please verify that the plug in disposer has been removed. If it proves to be ineffective, connect with a professional to accurately pinpoint any potentially more serious issues.

SOURCE: Water Will not Drain

It could be cause the water level switch. The level switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. I am not familiar with your machine,but if you will open the rear panel you will find it easily. Clear tube from any obstruction. Good luck !

SOURCE: Bosch dishwasher fills with water after cycle is completed

Sounds like you need a new water inlet valve. It's not shutting off completely, so water slowly enters the machine even while it isn't running.

I have a Frigidaire dishwasher model number FGBD2431KF purchased around 2009. Water is not pumping out.


Sc. Check the drain valve, remove the pump and test it. If it is not the pump then probably a relay or switch. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

No water going into dishwasher checked supply line its good Frigidaire model fdb635rfr6


Just had a similar problem with my Frigidaire FDB834RFS0 model. Dishes were not getting clean. Noticed some detergent still remaining in the dispenser after completing a wash cycle. Checked the water level during several cycles and noticed it was barely visible in the bottom of the tub. Decided to remove the water supply valve and solenoid to check it, thinking I would probably have to buy another one. Took it apart and found there is a mesh water strainer on the inlet side that was full of bits of junk. Cleaned it out and decided to reinstall to see if it made a difference. Noticed immediately when starting the next cycle that I could hear the water gushing into the tub. The water level rose significantly and the result was clean dishes and no left over detergent in the dispenser.
