Runs forever! even on Normal wash...help !!

Frigidaire model FDB510LC53,less than 2 yrs old.
It seems on any wash cycle, it will take 4-8hrs to complete the cycle.

We timed it today on "Normal" cycle...start time 9;45AM...Finished at 2:15pm ( 4 1/2 hrs.) is this normal///the "Heavy Duty" cycle will go nearly 8hrs.
Any hints ( othrt than total replacement??

Thx
JRW I have the same problem as jmjh2001's post. We have had this model for 5 years, and it just happened. I started it at 9 p.m. and my wife woke me up at 4 a.m. telling me the dishwasher was still running. We also got the Heating delay light. I am planning on replacing the Timer, as I believe the timer is causing the machine to run all this time.

Check to make sure you heating element has not failed. Dishwashers of today heat the water periodically through out the cycle and if the element has failed. The heating delay light is the indicator that tells you that it is trying to heat the water.

Frigidaire dishwasher noticeably louder - circulation motor?


Try to position the machine, so that you can run the cycle and watch the dish washer. Remove the back panel and hear the sound of origination. Take suitable action as per your convenience. You can clean & replace the bearings if they are worn or replace as a whole unit.

The dishwasher runs for 1 1/2 hours on the wash cycle.


Hi,

This may sound strange but that is a normal cycle time for today's dishwashers. They use much less water and the water is 'recycled' within the filtration system in the pump.

By reusing and filtering this water they save on heating energy and water consumption. The motors are not as powerful so they use less power even when running longer. Many machines will alternate the wash between the upper and lower arms, this type uses much less water and energy but again the trade off is long cycle times.

If you were to select a heavy or pots and pan cycle with hi temperature wash and a sani rinse your times can be up to 4 hours in some machines today.

The reason behind these savings are mostly due to the energy standards that the appliance manufactures have to abide by today.

I know this may not have been what you wanted to hear but it is how they work today.

They weren't lyin', with the new improved energy effeciency and cleaning units they using more "soaking" times to losen food particles to use less water and clean better. And that they deffinitly do versus old units and they save more energy by doing this also. On some makes and models theywill have cycles that still use less time but also will then use some more water during this cycle. My SEARS store "blue crew" did research and found out this cycle for me.

Today's dishwashers use less water and less electricity so the manufacturers have had to increase wash times to get good results. One hour is about normal for the "eco" cycle since it's always "sensing" the water turbidity (soil in the wash water) and water temperature, and making adjustments as necessary.
Your shortest wash cycle would be "delicate" but it might not give you the best results.

The most obvious failure would be the mechanical timer that is behind / part of the knob used to select the cycle.

But, you may want to inspect the heating element in the sump area -- some dishwashers will wait (and wait) for the water temp to come up high.

Good Luck!

Dishwasher won't cycle through to rinse/dry/stop


Your timer switch is most likely defective.

It probably needs to be replaced.

It is like a clock with switches at different times

If it is stuck at a particular time it will run there forever.

Before servicing disconnect power!!!!!!!!!!

You can remove inside door panel with about 6 phillips screws or so.

Timer is directly attached to the dial on your machine.

These cost about $100.00 or less.

Can also be found used online for cheaper.

Hi jannewbery,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: You have looked in the manual under troubleshooting tips, but didn't find anything on the problem. The dishwasher goes into cycle,but during the wash cycle it stops,makes alarm and the wash and rinse ligts come on. And now you can't even find the product on this site.Westpoint Dishwasher WQP12-9240.
Thankyou Your dishwasher is stopping at stage 2 of the programme after beeping once. Quite often the detergent flap doesn't open. Am at your wits end and threatening to leave home!!!! The machine is less than a year old. PLEASE HELP!!!! Thank you.

Don't leave just yet. It sounds like a control problem. The d/w should still be under warranty if it is less than one year old. Use it before it runs out. I don't recomend this type of repair for the average homeowner.

Feel free contact me again!
