Installed new soap dispenser; forgot to mark wires

I installed a new soap dispenser on my Frigidaire Dishwasher model FDB1250REC2, but forgot to mark which wire goes where on the actuator. One has a red wire, one has a white wire. Which one goes on the front prong and which one on the back prong?

Soap door opens during cycle, but soap does not dispense??

Hello Eric, thank you for your post!

I understand that the dispenser on your Frigidaire dishwasher opens but the soap is not dispensing into your dishwasher. How old is your dishwasher soap? If it is around a year old you may need to discard it and use a new soap. Also check to make sure when you stack dishes that they are not obstructing the arms from reaching the dispenser. Make sure your spray arms are clear of any debris that could block the distribution of water inside of your dishwasher. You may need to connect with a professional technician for proper repairs if these steps do not correct your issues. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

I have a Frigidaire Dishwasher Model # FFBD2411NS0A. It cycles but does not clean AND the soap dispenser does not open during cycle. Im handy but not an electrician. Is this a power issue or.....?

You will need remove the door panel and look at the device directly behind the soap dispenser. It will have 2 wires to it. If the wires look OK and not unplugged, that little device will probably need replaced. Thats what opens the soap cup.

Good afternoon Derek, I appreciate your post!

I understand that you are experiencing an issue with your Frigidaire dishwasher not cleaning and not dispensing soap. This may be a possible issue with your dispenser, water, or soap. I would suggest when you load your dishwasher to make sure no plate or stemware is blocking the dispenser. Also if the water pressure coming into your dishwasher is not between 20-120 PSI it will not provide enough pressure to open the dispenser or dissolve the soap. The water temperature should be above 120 and below 130. If you review all these troubleshooting steps and continue to have issue it could be a possible problem with your spray arms or motor. I would then recommend seeing assistance from a professional. This may help you avoid unnecessary part purchases. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Dispenser door will not open

Hey friend, thank you for the post!

I understand that your soap dispenser door will not open on your Frigidaire dishwasher, LGBD2432LW0A. You could possibly be seeing an issue with soap dispenser not getting water into it to release the soap from dispensing. I would check to make sure there are no dishes blocking or obstructing the soap dispenser. You could also remove the soap dispenser to clean it and make sure there is no buildup of any previous detergent remaining that would cause the door to not open. If those steps do not solve the issue it could be a problem with the dispenser and I would recommend having a tech come out to the home to properly diagnose and repair the dishwasher. Hope this is helpful. -Matt

I just bought a brand new dishwasher and the soap dispenser opens but the soap is still in the dispenser clamped up like sand. It doesn't happen every time. The same thing started happening with my old...

Try using the soap tablets instead. The frigidaire units use a small cylinder to actuate
the soap dispenser and if just a little too much soap is used the latch will bind and not
release. Alternatively, make sure the dispenser is only about half to 2/3 full if you need to
use powder detergent. This is a common problem with the frigidaire/ whirlpool/galax/kenmore
models. Hope this is useful.

Soap dispenser flap (door?) does not open during cycle

Be sure that the lower rack is installed correctly, If reversed, the rack will block the soap door shut. One side of the rack has opening for the door.

Dispenser door sticking. Run it a few cycles by putting the tablet in the cutlery basket.
