FDB956RBC0 - Dish Washer

There were roaches coming out of the unit. I could not remove the washer all the way out of the cabinet. I opened up the door and removed the stainless steel outer panel and got rid of the roaches. I placed the panel back but when I tried  putting on the washer the unit will not start. There is no function at all. I can see the power cord of the unit either.

Please help!

    this dishwasher has not worked since 2 weeks after I bought it. roach in the control panel was found 6 months after purchase - no repairman until then had opened the panel. is there another dishwasher made today that is not vulnerable to bugs in the panel. this is a stupid design since there is no house in the world without a bug here and there.

Seameat, you have a power issue. It is possible that when you pulled the unit that you frayed or shorted the power lead. Reset your breaker first. Tjhen, pull the unit and inspect. Oh, and shut off that breaker first. If the breaker is on when you start (it could be that it tripped), it must be shut off in order to reset it.

The door won't open fault code dl comes on when you try to use the machine how can i open the washer machine door.

Disconnect power then remove the three screws attaching the lower front access panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and off the cabinet. You can prop up the bottom front edge of the washer or cushion and lean it against the wall to access and remove the screws more easily.

Once the panel is off, reach up along the inside of the front panel and locate the bottom of the door lock and switch assembly on the right side. Locate the tear-drop shaped tab then gently pull it down until a click is heard, and then open the door.

The door lock and switch assembly may need to be replaced if the problem persists. The replacement procedure is here.

Dishwasher not draining,took side off but cannot get to pipes to clear them, please help!!

Have you cleaned out the screen in the bottom of the dish washer. Sometime's food will get in the drain there past screen to stop the drain up. That would be the first place to check.You could use a shop vac to get up excess water to get to drain to clean out inside unit.
If this doesn't help I have included a little information on how to remove dishwasher from cabinet to acess drain line.

If you can't acess the drain line you may have to take dish washer loose and slide out to get to it. To do this remove 2 screws that are connected from tabs's near the top of the door under the cbainet top.
Open door and look up and there should be two metal tabs with screws in them holding the washer in place. Next you will need to shut water off and disconnect the water line which will be located near the left front at bottom once you take the removable panel loose.
Also shut power off to washer and you may have to disconnect the power supply if it isn't enough wire to pull unit out. If you if has enough wire and water line you maybe able to get it out without disconecting them.
On the back side of the pump the drain line is connected to it. You may be able to take it loose from underneath, not much room if it can be taken loose with unit in place .
Anyway I hope that I have included something that maybe of some help to you.

Have LG 1812 front load washer, it is making noise when water tries to drain out, we were able to drain the hose but unable to remove the drain pump filter-just spins

Unscrew the drain pump filter counterclockwise to remove it from the pump assembly. If it cannot be removed, you need to replace the pump casing (part #3108ER1001B) and the pump filter (part #383EER2001A).

Disconnect power to the washer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Remove the two screws at the rear of the top panel attaching it to the cabinet. Slide the panel rearward then lift it off the washer.

Disconnect the control panel wiring harness from the main board assembly. Pull the dispenser drawer out until it stops then press the locking tab and pull the drawer out completely.

Remove the two screws from the drawer opening then lift the left side of the console and pull it off the cabinet.

Remove the three screws from the upper part of the front panel and the screw from the filter cover.

Insert a putty knife blade or similar flat tool in both sides of the filter cover then pull it out of the cabinet. Remove the screw from the lower side of the front panel.

Open the washer door and remove the wire and spring holding the door gasket to the outer lip of the door opening. Stretch the spring with a pair of needle-nose pliers to clear the wire off the lip of the door opening then remove the wire and spring assembly.

Peel off the door gasket into the drum then tilt the front panel and disconnect the door switch wiring harness from the door switch terminals. Lift the front panel and remove it from the cabinet.

Compress the spring clamps holding the pump inlet and outlet hoses then move the clamps away from the pump casing.

Remove the two screws securing the pump to the base of the washer. Press down the tab at the back of the pump assembly and push the assembly into the washer then lift the pump assembly up and out of the washer. Remove the hoses from the pump assembly.

Unscrew the pump from the casing and inspect the impeller for any damage. Rotate the impeller to check whether there's restriction. Replace the pump (part #4681EA2001D) if the impeller is broken or does not rotate freely.

Install the pump assembly and reassemble the washer by reversing the given disassembly steps.

Machine light turns on, cycle light blinks, door is closed but the door lock light doesn't come on and washer won't start. Code shows f dl?

The door lock and switch assembly has failed. You may actually hear it click several times before the code appears. If not, it may not be receiving power or signal from the central control unit to activate.

Disconnect power to the washer to avoid electric shock.

Remove the three screws from the rear of the top panel attaching it to the cabinet then slide the panel rearward, and then lift it off the cabinet.

Disconnect the third and the fourth from right, facing the front of the washer, wiring harness connectors from the central control unit. Clean the connector terminals thoroughly then reseat it several times to ensure a good connection between them. Do the same with the connector second from the top on the left side of the central control unit.

After ensuring that the connectors are properly connected, slide the top panel back in place, and then secure it the three attaching screws.

The next thing to do is visually check the door lock and switch assembly for physical damage.

Remove the wire and spring assembly that holds the door gasket to the lip of the door opening. Use a pair of needle-nose pliers to stretch the retaining spring then remove it together with the wire.

Gently peel the part of the door gasket near the door lock/latch assembly off the lip of the right side of the door opening. Remove enough of the door gasket to access the door lock/latch assembly behind the front panel.

Remove the three screws securing the door lock/latch assembly to the front panel and slightly lift it then pull it back off the front panel.

Pull the door lock/latch assembly out of the washer and disconnect the wiring harness. Clean the terminals and reseat it several times.

To replace the door lock and switch assembly (part #8182634); connect the wires properly then secure the assembly into position behind the front panel with the three securing screws.

Put the eased part of the door gasket back in place over the lip of the door opening.

Check that the door gasket is properly seated before securing it with the retaining wire and spring around the lip of the door opening and the door gasket.

Do i take the back off first

First unplug washer. There are two screw in the back of the console, left and right side, going down into the cabinet. Remove these screws, stand in front of the machine and rotate the console toward you and up and it will hinge backwards. Now there are 2 odd looking brass color clips on the left and right side going from the back into the cabinet, insert a flathead screwdriver into the clip on the cabinet side rotate screwdriver to the back of the washer and it will depress like a spring and come off. The door switch is plugged in from the back going to the cabinet. Unplug from the cabinet. Open the lid and rotate the whole cabinet toward you until it reaches a 45 degree angle. Watch carefully how the cabinet comes off to aid in reassembling. Pull the cabinet away from the washer. You will now have access to work on the washer. Good luck.
Thank you

Cabinet removal

Follow these steps: 1. Open dispenser on top and remove screws. 2. Remove the door and screws opposite the door around the door opening. Front panel should come off. I'm trying to remember if the motor control board is in the cabinet, or under the console. Some washing machines now have the control board under the console. Just in case you open up the front casing and don't find what you're looking for, you can also remove the screws from the back of the console and it should lift up. Let me know if this helps you.
