See if the float in the front corner inside the unit moves up and down freely and makes a "clicking" sound when moved. If there is a clicking noise, the float switch is probably okay. The switch can be tested with a volt/ohm meter by removing the lower access panel to get to the switch. Some units have an actual water level pressure switch attached to the pump housing instead of a float and switch. These switches can plug up with soap residue causing a no fill or overfill condition.

The problem is more likely the water inlet valve. These valves go bad frequently for a variety of reasons. It is not worth the risk of a valve failure and possible flood to take apart and clean an inlet valve. Replacement is the best solution. In most conditions, the inlet valve will need to be replaced every 4-6 years.

Standing water in dishwasher


Two things to consider....clean water or dirty water?

Clean water usually indicates the fill valve is not shutting off all the way and the fill valve is "weeping" water in all the time = new fill valve time!!

Dirty water usually is not a dishwasher problem but more of a plumbing issue. Often the sink drain that carries the sinks water outside is not fast enough and some of this sink water is backing up into the drain hose and filling up the dishwasher through the drain hose. The drain from the sink to outside needs attention as this type of a problem indicates a slow house drain for that sink.

The dishwasher drain line should be clamped to the top underneath part of the counter before entering the sink drain plumbing, this may help the water from coming back inside the dishwasher.

My dishwasher will not fill with water


There can be multiple reasons why the water is not entering the line. First thing to do is to disconnect both hoses from the dishwasher and place them in the sink. Turn on the water slowly and make sure that both hoses release water into the sink. If the water flows, get a plastic drain snake and attempt to push it into the water intake lines from the rear of the dishwasher to clear any clogs that may be in the lines. Look at the rotary head in the dishwasher for hole clogs and remove any debris found. Reconnect the water lines and make sure that all inlet valves are open. Turn on the water and attempt the fill again. If this does not work, then you will have to disassemble the rear panel of the dishwasher and look closer at all waterline connections.

I have a dishwasher standing on the floor. I need that the water coming out of the dishwasher will come out to the sink because I have no dishwasher preparation. There is a height difference of 40-50 cm...


Hi Sharonl100,
Yes you will have no problem if you use the sink, I would however recommend that you lower the drain hose after each wash to the floor (emptying into a bucket or somesuch), and siphoning any remaining water from the machine.
Kind Regards

WHEN RUNNING A CYCLE ON TOP DRAW THE BOTTOM DRAW WILL FILL UP WITH WATER NOT DRAIN


The drain hose going to the kitchen sink is blocked. If you have an insinkerator in your kitchen sink then run it first. Otherwise take the dishwasher hose out from the sink outlet and run straight into sink to see if any difference.

If the solenoid valve is humming and calling for water, you probably have a plugged screen in the valve, some you can get to and clean, some you have to replace.

Dishwasher Accumulates Water When Off


Try turning water off to dishwasher and see if it stops it. If so, replace valve. If not check for a low drain hose loop, allowing drain water from sink to back up into dishwasher. Just raise drain hose as high as possible under sink and secure.

what part? Frigidaire Dishwasher FDB1050REC. Dishwasher goes through cycle but then light gets stuck on "CLEAN". I turn off and on the circuit breaker. Three lights flash on the control pad. I press start/cancel and the light off and I can then start another cleaning cycle again like normal. Of course I can't do this every time I want to use the dishwasher. But I have noticed that if I press cancel during the "DRY" phase (DRY light is on), before it gets to "CLEAN". I can use the machine again no problem. In essence, I have to catch it while the "DRY" light is on, before the clean light goes on. I have run into this problem before and here is a detailed step by step description: The first time this happened, I was told that it was a control board problem so bought a new one, installed it but it did not work. Someone the suggested that it was a door latch problem. I then replace the door latch and it worked!! A year later the same problem occurred so I replaced it with a new one again,thinking that if it solved the problem the first time then it should again. Unfortunately it did not work. So I tried putting back the original control board and it worked again. So this time it seemed to be the control board. Worked for another few months until I smelled something burning. After that the machine did not work and it is at the stage that I described above. Are you able to help diagnose the problem? Could it be the wires were over heated? If so that would be of great help. Hopefully my description is detailed enough. Many thanks, Edward
