Question about Frigidaire Dishwashers
Dishwasher, which is free standing will not draw water from the sink. Sink hookup works fine.
im having the same problem.
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.

Tips for a great answer:
Two things to consider....clean water or
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.
