SOURCE: The door on my dishwasher will not close

There are a few problems that can occur with the diswasher door assembly. These usually involve the latching mechanism, the door seal, the counterbalance spring assembly or the hinges. 1) The door latch plate can occasionally become out of alignment. Some door latch plates are adjustable, some aren't. If yours is adjustable, try loosening the retaining screws and repositioning the plate. It's trial-and-error, so have a lot of patience. If this doesn't work, then the latch needs replacing.
2) A new dishwasher or a newly installed door seal can be difficult to close for a while until the seal softens and compresses over time. You can try adjusting the latch, if possible.
3) If the door feels unusually heavy, there could be a problem with the counterbalance spring assembly. These counterbalance assemblies allow the door to open and close easier and are held by two springs. On some dishwasher models, holes are positioned in line so you can re-tension the springs by moving the spring hooks to other tensioning holes. If any of these springs break, they will need to be replaced as a pair.
4) The door hinges might be bent. They can seldom be adequately fixed and should be replaced.
hope this helps

SOURCE: Frigidaire Dishwasher won't start

hi there,

as u said that u have already replaced the timer u may also try the following:

Power from the house Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.

SOURCE: Frigidaire PLD4460REC Dishwasher will not start

This is very likely due to a bad main electronic control board but the only way to know for sure is to do some electrical testing with a volt/ohm meter and the wiring diagram located within the appliance. If possible use the meter and the wiring diagram to check input/output voltages looking for discrepancies between the diagram and the actual meter readings.

SOURCE: Frigidaire pld3460rdc1 the dishwasher flashed CL when the door is

The CL is letting you know that the door was closed. If it continues to show CL it means you need to close and latch before the cycle will run. If it just flashes your okay.

SOURCE: Frigidaire dishwasher door squeaks when opened and closed

I had the same problem and this worked like a charm:
http://www.blog.applianceoutletservice.com/2008/12/frigidaire-dishwasher-door-squeaks.html

All you'll have to do is take off the kick plate, actually remove the cords, and lubricate with soap (lower tech than spray silicon, but it's worked so far...)

Dishwasher door will not close dishwasher come on with door open.


Good Morning Garthraie, thanks for your post!
I see that the door on your Frigidaire dishwasher appears to be locked and will not close. Could you please advise if the control panel has any lights lit up on it? Also, may I have the model number of your dishwasher? You can locate the serial tag (which lists your model number) on the inside left hand wall of your dishwasher. With this additional information I would be able to assist you further. -Matt

Have a frigidaire dishwasher number FFBD2406NS, has power to the washer it self but none of the lights turn on once pushed to lock the door.


Good Afternoon Billy, thanks for your submission!
I understand that your Frigidaire dishwasher, FFBD2406NS, is receiving power but no lights work once the door has been closed and locked. There could be an issue within a wiring harness, door lock, or control panel. Since it could be anyone of these underlying issues I would suggest having a professional technician to perform a proper diagnosis. This will prevent you from purchasing any unnecessary parts. Hopefully this information is helpful towards your repair. -Matt

Are lights supposed to be on when the dishwasher is running and the door is closed?


The buttons and the display panel are not lit when the machine is running. This is to save energy according to frigidaire. I wish I had know this before purchasing it about a year and a half ago. The cycle count down timer was a big reason I purchased this one, but what good is it if it only works when the door is open?

Frigidaire FGHD2433KF starts when closing the door without pushing the on button


Hi Charles - From what you have described it sounds like there is a miscommunication with the control board/panel and you will need to contact a professional to diagnose it for repairs.

Frigidaire Dishwasher Model:FDB1050RECO - When i push the start button all lights go out. I have to open and shut the door in order to start the unit this sometimes works...


same problem, wash light would flash, just like if the door was open during the wash cycle....took door apart and suspected the door switch was bad, fiddled with the wires that go to the door switch and the washer worked after that. so i had the door disassembled and used my hand to close the door latch switch then wiggled the white and black wires that go into the bottom of the switch, that is when it started to work.
wiggled with the wires for a while more while the washer was working to make it stop and start, until i found a good spot where it stayed working. been a few days and it is still working. need a new door switch if'/when it quits next time.
the door switch keeps the washer from running with the door open, it tells you the door is open by flashing the "wash" light when you try to start it. cheesy switch, my washer is only a few years old. i tried all the other things suggested, power on and off and hold down different combo's of buttons while standing on your head with your right eye closed, none of that worked so out came the screw driver.
figured if it was coming out to go to the dump i could not hurt it much more than it was at that time.
anyhow door switch was the problem, i hope this helps more people out there, i was close to throwing it out after not finding much for helpful advice online.

I have a Frigidaire built in dishwasher that won't start. There is a light on by the 3 second lock button


Your dishwasher is in the lock mode. If you press the button on the dishwasher that has the lock for maybe 5 seconds , the light will go off. Then put the dishwasher in a wash cycle (normal) and your dishwasher should start up working. Make sure the door is all the way closed. Hear the click of the door when it shuts. After about 90 seconds it should have water in it, press the start/cancel button 2 times and the water drains out.

Frigidaire Dishw. Error code CL


this just happened to ours and it turned out to be the gasket that seals the door.

when you see the CL error and the door is indeed shut, pull gently back on the door. if you hear a click and the unit starts running again, it may be the gasket.

ours lost it's ability to keep the seal, allowing enough 'play' in the locking mechanism for it to think the door was not closed.
