Question about Frigidaire Dishwashers

1 Answer

My Frigidaire dishwasher FDB20RHS3B is not draining water. I have cleaned the water out of the bottom, cleaned the screen and parts in the bottom. Took drain hose off from garbage disposal (which is working fine), sucked a small amount of water out of hose with shop vac. Tried running again, same thing, water still in the bottom. Can anyone help? The dishwasher is only a little over a year old.

Hi Monique,

By any chance is your kitchen sink draining slowly? If the main drain is clogged it will back-up all the way to the dishwasher. Try using 2-Second Plumber or a similar product with a CO2 blast to clean the whole drain first.

It is probably clogged at the pump or before. See if you can get outlet hose off the bottom before the pump.

The dishwasher really shouldn't pass any particles near large enough to clog the drain hose. It sounds more like a mechanical issue. Check the circuit breaker to make sure it's not tripped. See if you can hit a cancel button or something to make it drain. Try to run another cycle. If the computer is stuck or acting funny, trying cutting the power for a while, holding down a stop/reset/cancel button, or running a cycle that you don't usually run. I had this kitchenaid that would randomly refuse the normal wash cycle, but would run fine when you ran rinse only or something, then regular wash and everything would be fine again too. If the line somehow is clogged, there's a good chance it's right where the hose connects to the disposal or drain pipe.

SOURCE: Dishwasher will not drain- just replaced old, clogged garbage dis

Hi, If your dishwasher drain line is attaching to the disposer than you'll need to insure the "knock out" in the disposer upper end bell where the drain connect's is indeed knocked out. You can do this by removing the d/w drain at the disposer, then reaching in with a long screw driver and with the palm of your hand give it a quick firm punch. Once the knock out pop's out you'll need to reach in the garb and remove the piece of plastic from the knock out. This is a common step overlooked, so if that is the only problem don't be embarrassed, I see it at least once a month or more. Let me know if I can assist you further. Thanks for coming to "fixya" for your solution's. If you found this helpful please allow a second for a positive rating, if it wasn't helpful let me know and I'll try to expand on possible causes and remedies. Good luck. macmarkus :)

My Frigidaire dishwasher has dirty water.standing in bottom. Dishes are not clean


Two things to consider....clean water or dirty water?

Clean water usually indicates the fill valve is not shutting off all the way and the fill valve is "weeping" water in all the time = new fill valve time!!

Dirty water usually is not a dishwasher problem but more of a plumbing issue. Often the sink drain that carries the sinks water outside is not fast enough and some of this sink water is backing up into the drain hose and filling up the dishwasher through the drain hose. The drain from the sink to outside needs attention as this type of a problem indicates a slow house drain for that sink.

The dishwasher drain line should be clamped to the top underneath part of the counter before entering the sink drain plumbing, this may help the water from coming back inside the dishwasher.

Water did not drain from the bottom


Hello Cheryl, There are a couple of possibilities. When the dishwasher drains the dirty water it is a time based function. This leads me to believe it is a blockage or partial blockage in the drain hose.
Here is an example. (If your dishwasher drains into your garbage disposal) washing dishes you put scraps into the disposal and forget to turn it on after you are done. The disposal is filled with scraps this restricts the flow of dirty waterfrom the dishwasher. If the flow is restricted less water is being drained per second from the dishwasher. This is why the dishes still looked clean and there was still water in the bottom of the dishwasher.
(if your dishwasher drains into a drain pipe) there is blockage or partial blockagein the dishwasher drain hose. if the sink drains slowly the blockage is in the main line
Hope this helps

I have standing water in my dishwasher. How do I unclog the drain?


It will be smelly water and if you have access to a shop vac that will help you remove the standing water if not use a bowl or turkey blaster listed below.
Use a small bowl to remove standing water from washer to access screen to remove and check for blockage. Once you have removed all the water that you can with a bowl or cup. You can use a turkey blaster to sucton remaining water from dishwasher.
Then you remove screen and clean out drain and also check drain line for blockage from dishwasher to under sink.

Clean out drain to unclog in bottom of dishwasher and you may have to remove drain line to clean it.

Dishwasher is draining during the wash cycle, but leaves water in the bottom at the end of the wash. What could be the problem?


Hello Ellsaesser,

Dishwashers typically leave water in the drain system exitting the pan but not a lot of water. If yours does then make sure you clean the drain screen ( normally located in or around the drain tube exitting the pan of the dishwasher..) If after cleaning that and after a normal wash cycle you continue to have significant volumes of water in the pan, the pump, lines leading to and from that pump may be restricting flow or damaged.. Those are a few of the normal culprets for why there is a lot of water in the pan of dishwashers after a cycle.. Hope that helps you identify the problem and resolve it,..,
Regards

My dishwasher will not drain. Water is pooled in the washer.


Sometimes the Filter screens in the bottom, can become clogged with food particles. With a few simple houshold tools, you can disassemble it and clean the screens.

Garbage Disposal backing up in dishwasher


Most dishwasher have a check valve at the pump to prevent water from backing into the dishwasher. If the pump is electric there is a rubber flat that may be gone or not working properly. If that is the case you need to replace the pump. If the pump is part of the motor assembly then the pump and motor will need to be replaced. One other thing to make sure of is that you have the drain hose looped to the top od the dishwasher and then to the disposal conection. Its called a drain loop and all dishwashers should have it. Good Luck
