Question about Frigidaire Professional Series 24 in. Built-In Dishwasher Dishwasher
The unit fills and then nothing happens until it drains. Then it fills again before the rinse cycle should come on but again does nothing. The water level covers the filter. the heating element seems to work. the detergent dispenser never opens.
After the unit fills for the second wash, open the door and check the level of water in the tub. It will not leak out and the unit will stop when the door is unlatched, then reply with the water level.
When a dishwasher detergent dispenser starts acting up, there is usually a detergent clogging problem present. Rinse out the dispenser cup and try switching to a liquid gel detergent. There also could be a problem with the spring on the dispenser having gone bad. The spring can be replaced by first removing the front panel of the dishwasher, then loosening the bolts that hold the dispenser cup to the dishwasher door.
If the dispenser cup is not spring-loaded, then chances are it uses either a bi-metal switch or a wax motor to disengage the door. These can be swapped out.
A defective timer switch can also be at fault.
hope this helps
