Question about Frigidaire 24 in. FDB510LC Free-standing Dishwasher

Wash cycle knob

Sometimes when I use the Frigidaire Ultra Quiet brand Dishwasher, the wash cycle knob sticks. I can remedy the issue by simply giving it a slight turn to move the wash cycle along, but that it isn't right that the knob stick like that, right? I was going to pop open the lid and attempt to fix it myself, but figured I better consult experts first.

It's a quirk of the cycle timer. You can replace the timer ($) or live with it. Besides, a replacement might have the same quirk

SOURCE: STICKS on cycle, wash, etc. If manually moved

Do you mean the timer or control dial sticks. If so then it may be the timer mechanism itself.

Make sure that when you are skipping a turn on the timer that the machine is actually performing that particular task of the cycle. For example if the timer gets stuck before the drain cycle, and you manually skip forward to it, that it actually drains the water out.

If so then it is most likely a worn timer mechanism which sticks.

No longer "ultra quiet" huh?

A sound during certain cycles indicates a broken part. By the information provided sounds like a pump may be the problem. You may need to contact a service tech about this issue. If the appliance still under warranty, the service should be provided for free.

Every time when you hear noises (other than the normal ones) in the appliance, it indicates there is something wrong and it will worsen over time, so as soon you hear something is not ok, get assistance.

My frigidaire ultra quiet III dishwasher sticks on wash cycle. whats wrong?


Good Morning friend, thanks for your inquiry!

From the information you have provided your Frigidaire dishwasher is sticking on the wash cycle. Do you mean the button is sticking? Or is it stuck on that cycle? If the button is stuck you may have an issue with your keypad and in order to help unstick the button I would push it down to see if that helps alleviate any tension.

If you dishwasher is stuck on the wash cycle I would recommend performing a reset and you can do that by flipping the household circuit breaker off for at least ten minutes. If you continue to have an issue with your cycles I would suggest having a professional out to properly diagnosis and replace any electrical components. I hope this information has been helpful. -Matt

I have a whirlpool Quiet partner 1 (DU920PWKQ0) that sticks midway thru the wash cycle and continues to wash until the control knob is physically moved, how do I repair this? Thanks


Try to clean the timer assembly using electronic cleaning chemical and ensure the base where the knob rests is also free from sticking.Replacing the timer is the best

Loud sounds


Many Frigidaire dishwashers come with the promise of being the "quietest dishwasher in its class," according to Frigidaire. However, a quiet dishwasher doesn't necessarily mean that the dishwasher is silent, as some noises are normal. It can take some troubleshooting at times to determine if a noise coming from the dishwasher is typical or if it indicates a larger problem Listen for the sound of water filling and draining throughout the wash cycle. These sounds are normal and do not indicate an issue.

  • 2 Pay attention to the drain motor, which operates at the beginning of each cycle. This noise should be fairly quiet and should not sound like a loud, grinding or banging sound.
  • 3 Note that the sound will change when the wash cycle moves between the lower and middle spray arms. This sound should be temporary and fairly quiet.
  • 4 Look for hard items in the dishwasher grinder or filter if a loud crunching, buzzing or grinding sound is heard. The dishwasher can typically grind up these items within one or two cycles, but the item may be lifted out and discarded to eliminate the sound.
  • 5 Remove the bottom rack and spray arms from the bottom of the dishwasher if there is a loud noise coming from the dishwasher that does not resolve itself. Look inside for the impeller, which is round and spins. Remove any debris that may be clogging up the impeller or pump.

    Loud Buzzing Sound from Dishwasher


    have you ever seen green led "Clean" light flashing? before or about the same time the buzzing sound started? and if so that would indicate that the control senses a fault in the temperature rise during the heating cycle and that the electronic control could be reset by initiating a service diagnostic cycle.(which is what you were trying to do) pls reread your manual there are times during that sequence that some buttons have to be pushed at the same time and within a certain amount of time..possible that your machine also has a bad timer which would give you a buzzing noise..if thats the case I would recommend replacing the cpu or control board..or the machin all together..The Kenmore Ultra Wash Quiet Guard name is sears but whirpool has the contract to produce all "kenmore products.hope that helps.

    Whirlpool Quiet Wash Plus Dishwasher is not despensing the detergent properly. After a wash cycle there is still some left.


    My Whirlpool Quiet Wash plus dishwasher seems to have died. No power. None of the buttons work, it quiet mid-cycle. No breaker issue, my garbage disposal runs off same breaker and is working fine. Any ideas? I was thinking the comp. board that the buttons work off of is fried. If this is the case any idea how much to replace it? Would it be cheaper to buy a new dishwasher?
