Frigidaire Dishwasher won't turn on

I'm thinking it's a connection problem with the wiring because this has happened before and it would take some opening and reclosing of the door to jostle it around to suddenly make the light come on.  I've pulled the dishwasher out a bit and looked at the wiring and nothing seems to be out of place or corroded.  Thoughts?

We have this same model. Right under the 5 yr warranty mark, the control panel started going "funny". Some of the buttons stopped working, then more. We could finally get it working only in one mode. I was certain it was the control board, which I replaced under warranty just in time.

This lasted another year, until moisture began appearing under the number window and the left side button set stopped working. Now the right side is gone, except for the delay-start button.

I believe moisture is getting into the control board and frying it, either slowly or quickly. If you are seeing similar problems where buttons seem to stop working, it is PROBABLY the control board. It is a relatively easy home repair if you know your way around a screw driver.

SOURCE: dishwasher not draining completely

If you take the toe panels off and look at the motor you will see the discharge anti-siphon tube there with the drain hose attached. That tube is the discharge major restriction point. Be careful not to destroy the anti-siphon valve, by pulling the bale, remove it, a flapper valve. If you can't see through the tube you have found the problem. Punch a screwdriver into it to dislodge the crap and clean it up. Put the anti-siphon valve back in as found and check it out. Be careful, when you remove the tube , water will come out of the pump assembly. If you remove the hose be sure to watch for water there also.

SOURCE: Maytag Dishwasher Doesn't Start

on a dishwasher an ohmmeter is almost useless. the best way to check is to look for voltage. at the door switch check for voltage to ground on both sides. if you have 120 on both sides of the switch then follow the wire over to the control board. if you have 120 going into the control board and nothing coming out of the control then you nood to start looking for a broken neutral. however the likelyhood that its the control panel may be a better idea especially if you are hitting buttons and nothing happens. try reseating any ribbon cables

SOURCE: Frigidaire Dishwasher won't start

hi there,

as u said that u have already replaced the timer u may also try the following:

Power from the house Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.

Won't Fill and will attempt to run wash cycle when turned off and door is closed


Hello ddux97 - I understand your dishwasher has power but will not fill with water. Here are a few simple troubleshooting tips that may help you resolve this issue:

• Make sure water supply is turned on. (First check for shut off valve under the kitchen sink).

• Check the house circuit breaker or fuse box, reset circuit breaker or replace fuse.

• Check inlet hose and make sure it's not twisted.

• Does float overfill protector (mushroom shaped object in tub) move freely? This is located in the bottom left front corner of the dishwasher.

• If this is a new install, then make sure the unit is not pressed up against the cabinet and the fill tube is not squeezed closed.

• Make sure the electrical wires going to the water inlet valve have not come off. It is best to turn off power to the dishwasher before reconnect wires, it doesn't matter which terminal is off both need to be connected.

• Make sure the drain hose is installed correctly. If the drain hose is routed under the floor as the dishwasher fills water can be drawn from the tub and appear to have never filled.

• Some models of Frigidaire dishwashers use a water pressure switch that will shut off the water valve if the tub over fills. These models do not have floats.

I hope these troubleshooting tips help you in some small way.

Frigidaire dishwasher won't spray


Hello - Are you referring to the spray arms will not rotate? If so, do you noticed if the spray arm is cracked or broken? Will it rotate slowly? If so, you might have to remove and replace the spray arm assemblies. I will suggest verifying that there is enough water pressure coming into the unit. If any proves to be ineffective, it could possibly have a communication problem coming from the main control board or wiring connections to the dispenser, I would suggest contacting a professional technician to diagnose the unit accurately.

Powerfailure notice is apparent nearly every other wash...looks like it is happening during the middle of the cycle, prior to drying. Any ideas? All other functions work, even the control panel.


Check the connections where the household wire connects to the dishwasher. Hold on each wire nut and tug on each individual wire to make sure they are securely attached. A loose connection at one of these wire nuts will give you your exact symptoms.

Burning Frigidaire dishwasher


After you turn off the power to your dishwasher, you can inspect the dishwasher with a flashlight to find where the melting happened. If it is near the circle that is the heating element, you can suspect the timer froze during the drying cycle.

But also open things up and look for shorted/melted wires (in the door panel and under the dishwasher.)

No matter what you find, if you have proof of purchase for your dishwasher, I would press for repair/replacement from the manufacturer.

Good Luck!

Next thing to look at--considering all the power is good--although that's what I'd check on again, would be the door switch. May have to remove the control panel cover or the door interior.
