Question about Frigidaire FFBD2406NB Built-In Dishwasher FFBD2406NB
It leaks only on occaision. This last time a lot. The time before I wasn't sure and was electricuted while cleaning it up. Is it clogging? I made sure the disposal was cleaned out before running. I was also doing laundry so could both be draining water at same time be toomuch and make it leak or not drain. I don't know if leaking only in front or underneath. They also don't include instructions on how to clean the filter.
Look at the bottom inside, there is a drain which can collect too much dirt and then stops up.

Most dishwasher have a check valve at the pump to prevent water from backing into the dishwasher. If the pump is electric there is a rubber flat that may be gone or not working properly. If that is the case you need to replace the pump. If the pump is part of the motor assembly then the pump and motor will need to be replaced. One other thing to make sure of is that you have the drain hose looped to the top od the dishwasher and then to the disposal conection. Its called a drain loop and all dishwashers should have it. Good Luck

SOURCE: Frigidaire PLD2855RCO Leaking
The gasket at the bottom of the door where air vents in to allow for "drying" gets water splash that differs depending upon what is loaded in front of it. For instance, my dishwasher (Frigidaire PLD2855RFC1) leaks only when a certain spoon or something is loaded in a certain position or a pan is creating too much basksplash. That sort of dynamic simply excapes the repair types in a lot of cases. And the problem leak does not occur when the technicial tests it when the machine is empty.
You need to call your local repair folks and tell them to get on their "support service website" (that only they can get on) and look up Electrolux bulletin DW 071 which speaks to this issue. The offending and poorly designed "gasket" has quietly been redesigned and supposedly fixes this problem. Too bad they don't tell us about it. My serial number fell right in the middle of the units produced with this bad design. I will never again buy a Frigidaire of any type - ever. Nor will I deal with Coos Bay Area Appliance Store again. They all spoon fed me all kinds of accusations that it was installed wrong, unlevel, whatever. None solved my problem. THEY WILL SUFFER REVENUE LOSSES because of this. Good luck to you.

A common problem with dishwashers is the non-draining machine. If you are having trouble, check to see if the drainpipe and sink trap are clogged. If you still have drainage problems after doing this, check your drain hose to make sure there are no kinks or bends. if the hose looks worn out you can replace the hose pretty inexpensivley. if your have thoughly checked from dishwasher to trap under the sink where your dishwasher should drain to and it seems clear you may have to call in the repair man.

SOURCE: dishwasher not draining
I had water at the bottom of my 4 year old plus dishwasher and of course I thought the worst. Did the pump go out, bad impeller, or what else could it be! I started with the easy stuff first and disconnected the drain lines. The drain line runs from the dishwasher to an air gap mounted to my sink, which keeps the drain line from getting an airlock. From the air gap device another larger line runs to the garbage disposal. I used an 8MM wrench to loosen the clamps enough to pull the drain lines off and drained them into a bucket. There really wasn't any resistance to water flow and no real chunks, I was disappointed.
I then took the actual air gap out of the sink by removing a large plastic nut and pulling the devise out from underneath the sink. When I inspected the air gap I saw a wad of hairy, feathery plastic stuff blocking the flow of water. I took the chunk out, reassembled everything and it works like new again.
It is a very easy fix and now even the area under the sink is clean to boot.

Sure its redeemable if you have the time and money. If I understand you correctly when you move the lowewr spray arm the water drains out? If this is the case then more than likely its a pump motor or solenoid. Reason I say this is on the bottom of the spray arm is a impeller and under that is filter and then pump impeller that drains the water. If its not draining but will by hand then its your pump motor or solenoid. When you start the washer then press cancel/drain do you hear anything? Maybe a humming sound. One more thing could be a thermal fuse for the motor. These are usually not resetable its a one time fuse if it blows you have o buy another one.Hope this helps
