Question about Frigidaire 24 in. PLD2560LCC Energy Star® Built-in Dishwasher
This is a Frigidaire FDBB2840EC1 dishwasher. The "CL" (close latch)and also "sensing" and "washing" indicators are flashing. Door is closed and latched securely. The motor hums but the dishwasher never fills with water or begins cycle. The motor ran like this all night. How can I fix this? Thanks much!

John, I had the same problem and just disassembled by removing the dozen or so screws around the inside of the door, lifting the waterproof panel, and pulling up the latch assembly to see what was broken. In my case there were plastic pieces broken off of the latch handle and where the latch hinges on the back of the control panel-the latter piece is $50 to replace. unfortunately. Good news is the disassembly and replacement will be easy as a DYI. Sorry this is too late to help you, but maybe others will have the same problem. Bruce

the start switch in the motor is probably bad,it could also be the motor relay.if you can get to the motor run the unit and while it hums try to turn the motor.it also could be something is stuck in the motor let me know.

Make sure the dial that you turn to start the dishwasher is all the way to the beginning. Sometimes my little grandson comes by and plays with it, turning it. I load, add soap and the dispenser won't close. I check the outside dial, and sure enough, set it to the very beginning and the dispenser locks in place!

sounds as if your door latch/handle is broken internally.your dishwasher is installed with 2 screws to theunderside of your countertop. its tricky but youll have to remove them (adjusting to leveling legs down will give you more room to get some kinda a phillips head bit in ther to remove the screws), once out slide the d/w foward and remove the strike plate door will open at least get your dishes out

Good Afternoon friend, thank you for your post!
Based off what you have described you have performed multiple tests to your Frigidaire dishwasher and it continues to display a "CL". That code does stand for close door which can mean that the door switch is sensing it is opened. For this error code it could be a possible problem with your door switch or main control. I understand you stated that the control did not appear to have a burn inside of it so it is easy to assume that the door latch could be the issue. Remember if you are not a professional technician this could be the start of unnecessary part purchases. I hope this information is helpful to some degree. -Matt

Hello linda_ross88 - Typically CL indicates that the main control board is not sensing that the door is properly closing. One of the best ways to determine if this is a false error code is to reset the power to the appliance by either unplugging it or flipping off the breaker for about 30 seconds. If the error code persists, typically an expert would need to check the door switches, wiring, and test the main control board. Regrettably, this is not a simple DIY job. I would strongly recommend seeking a professional to narrow down the precise issue before investing in parts that may or may not be the root cause.

Error CL appears when the dishwasher control
detects door switch is open or door is open. You'll have to open the door and
check the continuity of the door switch. If the door seems to be closed then it
is the control has detected an issue with the door latch. Check the door latch
& seals to make sure door is closing fine. Unplug the dishwasher from power
outlet and wait for 10-15 minutes. Restart the dishwasher and check if the
error is still there. If error still appears then you'll need to repalce the door
switch/door latch. Hope this helps... Please post back for further assistance.
