Good Morning Garthraie, thanks for your post!
I see that the door on your Frigidaire dishwasher appears to be locked and will not close. Could you please advise if the control panel has any lights lit up on it? Also, may I have the model number of your dishwasher? You can locate the serial tag (which lists your model number) on the inside left hand wall of your dishwasher. With this additional information I would be able to assist you further. -Matt
Did you have a power outage recently? They are notorious for damaging circuit boards--usually about 3-4 weeks after the power interruption strange things will either start happening or *not* happening with appliances due to damaged computer chips on the boards starting to fail. Your symptoms indicate either a blown user interface(push button panel) or a defective main control board(board with the brains on it) or both!
Your dishwasher will do this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water. Sometimes just a false reading.
Reset your console by pressing: high temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash, heated dry
When all the lights are on you are set in diagnostic mode. Just hit cancel a you will be able to run your dishwasher as normal. If this same light appears again then you have a bad element or thermostat.
Seems like the anti flood is activated when water (even a small amount) appears on the bottom of the machiene. This is usualy a leaking pipe but can also be caused by a clogged pipe. Most machiens do have a plastic pipe that (from the flat water tank) feeds water to the bottom of the machiene in case of an internal fault. The anti flood is normaly a polystireen float with micro switch on the base of the washer. This automatically puts the outlet pump on to drain the water. The machiene does not work exept the outlet pump in this mode.
