Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Frigidaire FDB1050REM0 dishwasher. Lights go through all cycles on every setting. Soap dispenser opens as it should and timer is right on.

It started making noise below the tub so I researched it here and found it was most likely the pump. I've replaced the circulation and drain pumps. All connections are solid and the water pressure is very good. At the connection to the control module one of the terminals to be discolored suggesting signs of heat. Door latch checks out ok

The soap dispenser only opens sometimes. When the dispenser doesn't open the soap is in a solid cake inside dispenser.


IF DISPENSER IS CLOSED WHEN FINISHED COMPLETE CYCLE .
THERE ARE TWO WAYS THAT D/W'S
OPEN THE DISPENSER ONE IS BY WAY OF TIMER TRIPPING LATCH, OTHER IS BY WAY OF BIMETAL IN THE DOOR. THE SOLID IS BECAUSE OF THE MOISTURE ABSORPTION OF THE SOAP. THIS IS ASSUMING THAT YOU HAVE NOT BLOCKED THE DISPENSER DOOR WITH SOME OBSTRUCTION.

Soap dispenser problem?


Check the water supply. Start cycle then open the door after it fills and check water level and spray action. If everything is soaking wet, there is probablyl a pizza pan blocking the soap tray.

Frigidaire fdb510lcs0 soap dispenser not opening


Hi


Many dishwashers (but not all) use a BI-metal strip that heats up once poweris applied to it. The BI-metal strip bends and allows the soap door spring toopen up the dispenser. This bi-metal strip is not given full 120 volts power,the timer "shunts" the power through either the heating element (most common ) or the motor and this gives the bi-metal strip lower than fullpower to work and open. Most often the bi-metal strip has lost its ability tobend properly and needs to be replaced. Older GE dishwashers used a mechanicalarm driven by the timer to open the dispenser = no electrical bi-metals.

Newer Frigidaire dishwashers and many newer Whirlpool dishwashers use a wax motor to open the soap dispenser. The plunger insidethe wax motor slowly moves and pushes the plunger and door open. And, if thiswax motor doesn’t receive 120 volts, then it’ll not work.

This will help you --

GE profile model GSD 4120y70BB the second soap dispensor does not open at the right time. When cycle is done and the door is opened the soap has just ran down. It is like it is opening to late.

Newer (plastic liner) Maytag dishwashers and many newer Whirlpool and Frigidaire dishwashers use a wax motor to open the soap dispenser; this wax motor does receive 120 volts to work. The plunger inside the wax motor slowly moves and pushes the plunger and door open. This is what a wax motor looks like.

Cleaning Cycle not Starting


Please provide the model number and the approximate age of the dishwasher.
If this diswasher uses a turning dial to select the cycle, which turns as the dishwasher progresses, I strongly suspect that this timer has failed and needs replacement. Especially since the soap door never opens. Does the dishwasher drain during and at the end of the full cycle?

Soap dispenser cover won't close


It sounds like it may be stuck between cycle steps.(this sometimes happens if the washer is open during a cycle)Try and run it through one full wash cycle as it is.Then check to see if the soap door will close.If not,the lack may be broken
