Question about Frigidaire 24 in. FDB1050REC Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
I first had this problem a few days ago. Even when I turned the circuit breaker off and on a few times it did not work. With help from this site I thought I had it licked when I opened the top panel and cleaned the latch assembly. This worked - for one cycle. But since then the clean light stays on at the end of the cycle and can only be operational again once I turn the circuit breaker off and on. Since I don't think I can keep doing this indefinately, I am hoping for a solution specific to this model. thanks to anyone who can help.
Good Morning Edward,
I see that you are having trouble with running your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# FDB1050REC, due to the "Clean" light being stuck on. I also see that regardless of you trying to reset the appliance, it might run through one cycle and then you're back to showing the "clean" light, and not being able to clear that light. It sounds to me like your control panel is having issues and might need to be replaced. I do suggest contacting a local authorized technician to diagnose the appliance, this way you're not just purchasing random parts.

Slam the door shut. What i did. I am guessing the switches in the door arent making good enough contact. When i slammed the door, it fired right up and ran fine

SOURCE: the dishwasher won't turn on
sounds like a problem with the door iterlock switch most of them have a small micro switch when you shut the door it activates the system quite easy to do but can be a bit fiddly

Possible solution. I had the same problem of "washing" light flashing last year and now today. Warranty has been expired for awhile, so no harm in trying. What worked for my situation was removing the six screws for the back of the plastic control cover. Take of the plastic cover. There are are two connectors to the HANDLE with white and black wires. To be safe I would shut off the ciruit to the dishwasher. Safety first. Carefully disconnect and inspect the contacts inside the connectors. Do not insert any metal objects if you left the power on. I believe that the moisture from the dishwasher can degrade the connectivity. I cleaned the contacts with q-tips and re-installed. Be careful to not bend the contacts. If you had sound, you could hear my dishwasher running. Total cost is about three cents. I believe that the connectors do not full close when corroded, which prevents the completion of the circuit to the controlls. The flashing light indicates that the door is open, when in fact it is closed. Hopefully this will help someone. Semper Fi

Thank you for your post, Michael Fiedler!
I understand that the light under your Frigidaire dishwasher is not turning off. It could be a miscommunication within the board or connector. I would suggest performing a reset on your dishwasher and you can do that by flipping the household circuit breaker in the off position for roughly ten minutes. If that does not help to resolve your issue I would recommend having a professional technician come out for a proper diagnosis and repair. The technician will have the appropriate tools needed to help pinpoint the fault within the dishwasher. Hope this information is helpful. -Matt
