Dishwasher Not Getting Water

I just installed new Frigidaire FDB1502RGC2 dishwasher. I'm getting power to the unit. When I start a cycle, I can hear the motor going (noisily, sounds sick - but new unit, not used to sounds) but there is no water going into the unit. After approximately 1 minute, the unit shuts off. I've checked the connections, no leaks. I don't see any noticeable kinks in the supply hose. Any ideas?

The water inlet valve could be faulty or possible some obstruction in it.

Check first the filters on the inlet water line (both sides). Then, if problem still exist - check that the inlet water valve works(it is an electromagnet valve, located at the pipe's entrance to the machine)). If it doesn't work, test that it get power. In case it get power and doesn't work - You can easily open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!! Check as well for valve's coil resistance. In case you have no resistance measurement - you should replace it for a new one. Good luck

SOURCE: dishwasher not draining completely

If you take the toe panels off and look at the motor you will see the discharge anti-siphon tube there with the drain hose attached. That tube is the discharge major restriction point. Be careful not to destroy the anti-siphon valve, by pulling the bale, remove it, a flapper valve. If you can't see through the tube you have found the problem. Punch a screwdriver into it to dislodge the crap and clean it up. Put the anti-siphon valve back in as found and check it out. Be careful, when you remove the tube , water will come out of the pump assembly. If you remove the hose be sure to watch for water there also.

SOURCE: Water coming out of the front door of the dishwasher

Read the installation instructions and make SURE that you have removed all of the packing material from inside and around the door. If you had the bottom apron off to hook it up, some insulation may have poked up into where the bottom of the door seals. Inspect the area that the door seals really carefully - you often can't see the bottom of the bachine side, due to how the door bottom catches drips, but if there's something that is sticking up into the lip when the door closes, that can give you problems. If you can take the bottom skirt off and run the machine, you may be able to see where the problem is coming from. Good Luck! Jim

First check the machine is getting electricity (and the problem isn't a blown fuse!)

A very likely cause is that the solenoid on the inlet valve has gone. Rarer possibilities to consider are water turned off at the mains, a blocked inlet strainer (where the inlet hose mates with the valve), or a problem with the programme controller.

The inlet valve is near the top of the machine, and is the thing the hose from your outside water supply screws into. The solenoid is the electrical bit that clips onto the top of the valve body.

I suggest you go out to your local appliance spares shop and buy a replacement solenoid for not much, fit it and see what happens. It is possible to do a series of tests to confirm first that really is the problem - but with the solenoids being cheap, I'm inclined to suggest not messing around with test gear, water and mains electricity.

When replacing the solenoid, make really sure the machine is unplugged from the electricity supply.

Usually best to take the top panel off to gain access (try taking the trim across the back of the top panel off, then sliding the panel off backwards).

Disconnect the cables from the old solenoid. Prise it off the valve body. Snap the new one on in its place and refit the cables (it doesn't really matter which way round they go, but one way will probable look neater than the other).

Stuck on washing cycle

Thank you for your post, Patrick Chow!

From my understanding your Frigidaire dishwasher is getting stuck in the washing cycle. Sounds like you may have a possible issue with a sensor or control panel. I would suggest performing a reset on your dishwasher and you can do that by disconnecting power from your dishwasher for approximately ten minutes. If you continue to experience problems with you dishwasher not cycling I would recommend reaching out to a technician for a diagnosis to be completed. The technician would be able to pinpoint the cause of the failure and complete repairs. Hope this is helpful. -Matt

Fdb1502rgc2 cycle long

Hello Ron Temple - Depending on which cycle is selected, the maximum time is approximately 4 hours. Factor that contributes to long cycle times is water temperature. The water temperature should be at least 120f and no more than 130f. I advise turning the hot water on at the sink (or faucet closest to the dishwasher); allow the water to get as hot as possible. Then, start the dishwasher. If you are still experiencing long time cycle, I personally recommend consulting a service provider.

Possible that the motor impeller has good particles in it, causing poor water pressure, which would be most evident on the top rack. You would have to remove the spray arm, then the filter, then the torx screws to get at impeller....unfortunately, that model of dishwasher isn't the greatest in the first place for washing, since it only has the one spray arm.

No water getting into the dishwasher

I'd check the power to and the fill solenoid. If poser is coming to it the solenoid is bad. If no power to it there may be an issue with the control. When checking for power to it be certain the contro is in a "fill" mode. Also start small be certain no one has just down the water line that feed the unit.
I hope this may have helped,

No water on wash cycle. replaced water vavle but still sishwater is dry.

There is a possibility that the water pump is bad or is clogged. How old is your unit? If it is still under warranty, see about getting a service person over to look at it. If it isn't under warranty consult your user's manual about getting to the waterpump to see if it is clogged or even working.

No power to dishwasher

depends on the sequence. many, but not all, dishwashers start with drain to get rid of the slops. if yours starts with fill, then no water supply will prevent progress.(you should be able to hear a low hum which is the valve energised) check also that the door is closing properly and latching. better to use cold water fill not hot
