Frigidaire FDB1050REM2 Stainless steel

This is the second new washer in the house. After about 3 months the unit has trash at the bottom of the glass catch,sometimes water dosn't drain, and dishes look like they have not even been washed. I bought this unit from Lowes and both have malfunctioned. Also water spots on dishes everything is kinda greesy. I have a garbage disposal on my sink, thats the only thing I can think of. Same unit new, twice this has happened can anyone help? I have had alot of houses with new dishwashers in them and never had any problems with them. Although never had a garbage disposal with the sink could this be the problem?

Thats sure can be the problem, especially since you had 2 machines with the same problem??? whats the chances of that.?? check your installation of drain hose. correctly done the hose MUST wrap up and back down the side of d/w created what is called HIGH LOOP(prevents siplhoning of water out and would help with debris flowing back through. make sure your cleanig the disposer frequently sounds like your backing up into d/w for sure

Hi friend, I appreciate your post!

I see your question is labeled under Frigidaire refrigerator, FGHB2844LF, and you are having difficulty engaging the water filter. Based off that model you should be able to push on the face of the water filter and slide the old cartridge out. First, to install the new cartridge you would need to remove the caps off of it. Secondly, using the alignment guide slide the new filter into the housing until it stops against the snap-in connector. Thirdly, push firmly until you hear the click which indicates that your filter has been engaged. Lastly press a glass against the water dispenser to verify no leaks are present at the filter housing. Hope this helps. -Matt

Frigidaire Gallery Stainless Steel Appliance finish defect. The Smudge-Proof finish on my Frigidaire refrigerator began peeling off after I owned the product for 14 months. It appears to be a clearcoat...

Frigidaire Gallery & Professional appliances put a micro-coating over their brushed stainless to help prevent smudges and fingerprinting. However, if this coating has begun to peel off there isn't much you can do about it. You can order a new door for it for around $250-$400 depending on the door. Very rare for this to happen. If was a common problem, they wouldn't make it like this.

Burners ignite but wont light

Are you on Natural Gas or LP?

If on LP, you may need to change the jets on the burners on top. Most times, when oven and broiler work and top doesn't, and you have spark, your jets are wrong size. Look on back of unit for a cardboard attached to unit, should have jets stuck to cardboard, if notgo to store where you bought unit and buy jets.

They weren't lyin', with the new improved energy effeciency and cleaning units they using more "soaking" times to losen food particles to use less water and clean better. And that they deffinitly do versus old units and they save more energy by doing this also. On some makes and models theywill have cycles that still use less time but also will then use some more water during this cycle. My SEARS store "blue crew" did research and found out this cycle for me.

Call Frigidaire and explain that you never used it till today because it was in storage from day one. that you had to ship out to Iraq! now your home and it came out of the box dead!!!!!!
this way the supervisor will fix it for free!!!

For this problem you will need to use factory service!

Here is the service company I refer my appliance customers too!
A&E Factory Service
A Nation Wide Company. / Available 24 / 7 for arranging appointments! In the USA.

If this dryer is 10 years old or more do not spend any money on it!
The new ones are much more efficient! If you have to replace it buy a Speed Queen , it will do 8 loads a week for 25 years!
It's the last washer and dryer I will ever buy!!!! And less expensive than a top of the line unit!

Good luck!
You will be fine now!
