Question about Frigidaire 24 in. FDB1050REC Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Frigidair 1000 series dishwasher clean light staying on and not able to operate until I turn circuit breaker off and on.

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.

-Best Regards-

SOURCE: Flashing "Washing" light on my frigidaire 1000 series dishwasher

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

Ongoing problem with Frigidaire Dishwasher FDB1050REC.

Let see if I can help!

If the light stays lit it would mean that the latch switch is defective and is not opening (electrically) when the door latch is cycled. When you go through the power off circuit breaker it performs the same function as if the latch switch was cycled hence the machine will operate until the next time the end of cycle clean light appears.

During your earlier repairs the inner panel of the door is removed and it is possible the switch operation was interfered with either allowing it to work or disabling its operation.

When the door latch is cycled at end of cycle the clean light should go out.

Check switch operation, installation and adjust or replace switch if defective.

If the washer is currently not working and you had smelled burning you need to check the following.:
  • Electrical connections to the control board, pump and heater. After the maintenance of removing the connectors may had been dirty and do to a high resistance connection overheated and failed.
  • Check the control board for PC track failure where the copper traces and connections have failed. Replace control board
  • The motor for a shorted winding. Replace pump motor.
These machines are very good and I would repair.

Hope this helps?

Underlight does not turn off

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

My Frigidaire electrolux dishwasher model # FDB2310LCC0 trips a pf code 40minutes into the cycle and it is not the circuit breaker. how do i correct this problem?

Good Morning Doria, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

Typically PF means power failure and you should be able to start a cycle. Unplug the unit or flip the household circuit breaker. Wait about ten minutes and then turn the unit back on. If the error code continues to display, I would suggest contacting a professional to accurately diagnose and repair it.

Best of luck!

The clean light won't go off on my Frigidaire 1000 series dishwasher and the only way to make it run or work or do anything is to reset the breaker. I have tried everything. PLEASE help

If clean light is blinking 7 times then it may be an issue with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump. If yes then please reset the power to the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error. If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry, Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry. Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button and allow it to completely drain and reset.

If this doesn't work then it's an issue with the wash pump not pumping the water past the heater efficiently or due to lack of water to heat. Please make sure that heater is not open circuited and is heating the water efficiently. You'll have to check the heater using a multimeter; the meter should read between 3000 to 3300 ohms (Use multimeter on Rx1 ohm setting). If heater is fine then make sure water pressure is optimum and fill valve is working fine. Hope this helps... Please post back for further assistance.

Dishwasher will not start

Go to your electrical panel and turn off the circuit that feeds your dishwasher. It will also turn off the clean light. Wait three minutes and then turn the circuit back on. That should reset your machine.
