Question about Frigidaire 24 in. PLD3465REC Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
My frigidaire dishwasher does not run anymore. It is just over a year old and the illuminated message on the front panel reads 'Er' along with the words 'washing', 'Dryer', 'Clean' and a small 's'. I've hit power to reset and it goes from the power failure 'PF' symbol to a number 48 and then back to the original Error message. And depressing any of the other buttons does nothing. Any advice as to what happened or what I need to do to get it running again. It is relatively new and I don't a lot of heavy washing.
I had the same problem. I pressed the "Start Cancel" button, kept it down, then pressed "Rinse Only" button. The display then went clear. I pressed "Start Cancel" again, then "83" showed up on the display. I let it run its cycle, then it corrected itself. A little scary, but it worked. This answer board is great!

Dudes. I totally hacked this, and I can make you a hero. If you have:
"illuminated message on the front panel reads 'Er' along with the words 'washing', 'Dryer', 'Clean' and a small 's'."
There is a PDF file for error codes online explaining that your dishwasher thinks that a button is being pressed for more than a minute during your cycle, and it shuts down with an error code. This would explain why the cycle is allowed to start, but stops with an error code.If you are like most, you just use the start button on the far right and not the 10ish other buttons to the left. If you use multiple buttons your solution may vary. I started by taking a kitchen knife to peel up the panel where the buttons are on the very top. It seems dangerous, but it is sticky and will adhere back down when you are done. At first I went as far as to apply a single layer of electrical tape to cover the contacts of all the buttons I do not use, just leaving the one button I use exposed. Turns out that this did not solve the problem, and the one button I used was the problem. So I half covered the contact of the suspect button and it worked. You may need to experiment with tape positioning, because you do want to have contact so that the button functions, but you want to keep it from generating an error code.
A good test to verify that that one of your buttons is a problem, is to peel up the adhesive keypad, start the washer, and leave it loose through a cycle to verify that this is your problem.

Ok I was having the same problem.... peeled back the control panel. Cleaned the contacts same problem. To my surprise.... it just so happened that one of the screws in front that holds the dishwasher to counter had worked itself loose and was continually causing the delay function to make contact for over a minute. I retapped and installed and bam. Now my dishwasher works. Thanks to all for the trouble shooting tips!

New $100 console panel (for me, part # 154639212) fixed the problem. You can tell that the control board is probably fine, because it is giving you this fairly detailed error ('Er' along with the words 'washing', 'Dryer', 'Clean' and a small 's') that means that there is a short or bridge in the console panel circuitry.

Tips for a great answer:
Good Afternoon Delia Collins, thank you for your post!
Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire dishwasher is flashing an "ER" error code on the panel. Typically, the "ER" stands for an error code sometimes to help clear out a false error code you can perform a reset on your dishwasher. In order to do that you would need to disconnect power from your dishwasher for approximately ten minutes.
If you continue to experience an issue with the error code I would recommend contacting a technician for proper repairs. The technician will be able to properly diagnosis your dishwasher and this will help you to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

"Er Clean S" is a common error with Frigidaire which means
shorted keypad. The issue is with the touchpad/keypad that should be replaced, under warranty.
However, before replacing the keypad you can unplug it and take it apart
completely and use a hair dryer to blow some warm air on the keypad assembly to
blow the moisture off but again doing this will void warranty so decide if you want to get this done under warranty or you want to do it yourself. Hope this helps...please post back for further
