My 2 year old frigidaire dishwasher is not filling up with water, goes through cycle but no water is coming out, valve is open all the way?


If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor. The water pressure must be good and the spraying must be seen to be good. If there is low pumping or pressure then the spray arms will not turn around to inject with pressure. If so the pump must be checked for clogging.

White residue on dishes when the dishwasher cycle has completed, not sure why, salt is fine. Is this limescale?


Hi
Make sure that the water is being heated up by your dishwasher. Also need to make sure that the wash motor is spraying water around at full force.

Best way to check this is to start a normal cycle about 10 minutes into the cycle open the dishwasher door during the cycle. 1st observe if the water was being sprayed around as you opened the door. 2nd feel the water and see if it has heated up.
Reset or cancel the cycle and wait for the water to empty. make sure it is draining properly and also check to see if filter is clean.
I'm inclined to think your machine is not heating the water.

Try pouring water from the front. The pump has got air traps inside. This will ease your problem.

Also check whether the spray arm turns freely without any obstacles.

Pour 1 Cup of Muriatic Acid (Can be purchased at your local Pool Supply Store) into the bottom of the washer and a little in the soap dish. Run the Dishwasher through 5 cycles. Check to see If this helps. If not Try the same process with CLR house cleaner.

Dishwasher does not clean dishes, soap does not fully go away


Water Inlet Valve

A dishwasher's water inlet valve is its most common part to fail. When your dishes are not being fully cleaned, quite often a faulty water inlet valve is to blame. Test your dishwasher's water inlet valve, and if it is no longer functioning as it should, you will have to replace it.
Heating Element

Water temperature is a key element in achieving clean dishes. A dishwasher's heating element is not designed to heat the water that enters it. Rather, the heating element is designed to maintain the heat of the water that enters the dishwasher. Its a good idea to run the hot water in your sink for a couple of minutes before you run the dishwasher. Just to make sure the water is nice and hot before it enters the dishwasher. If the water is unable to stay hot, it can adversely affect your dishwasher's cleaning ability.
Filter/Drain Grate

There is a filter in your dishwasher. Its function is to keep large particles of food and foreign objects away from the pump. Many of the newly-manufactured dishwashers have self-cleaning filters, and routine cleaning isn't a concern. However, some other dishw ashers need to have the filter removed and cleaned regularly. If the filter or grate is clogged or blocked with debris, it may interfere with the normal functioning of your dishwasher. Consult your owner's manual for specific directions for removing your dishwasher's filter and cleaning it.

  • . Detergent or Detergent Cup

    It could just be that you aren't using enough soap to completely wash your dishes. Your dishwasher may be designed to dispense soap at two different times during the wash cycle. If you don't fill all of the detergent cups, then the diswasher will lose a cleaning cycle. Also, if you use a gel-type detergent, try switching to a powered kind. Powders tend to dissolve better in hot water. And don't buy in bulk. Detergents are most effective in the first two weeks. After that, they decrease in potency.
    Alternatively, your dishwasher's detergent cup could be defective in some way. It is possible that it is gunked up full of built up detergent, and a thorough cleaning may be enough to get it working again. If that doesn't do the trick, you probably need to replace the entire detergent cup assembly. If your cup isn't even opening, My dishwasher detergent cup won't open.

    Cycle Selector Switch
    Sometimes a dishwasher's cycle selector switch is the reason why dishes are not coming completely clean. Test your selector switch to determine whether or not it has become defective. If it has, replace it.

    Slow cold water fill, now no rinse/spray cycle


    There is a filter screen inside the cold water valve.
    Remove the hose, then take the filter screen out and clean it.
    Replace it in the valve.
    Problem solved until it stops up again.

    Dishwasher doesn't spray


    It sounds like your dishwasher is doing everything normal EXCEPT washing. The unit fills properly, the timer advances properly, the unit drains and goes through a rinse cycle, plus the water is heating. I would check your main wash pump for obstructions that may be clogging it, or if it is not running at all, you need to check the interconnecting wiring and/or something in the wash pump circuit that would prevent it from running. There should be a wiring diagram/tech sheet located behind the lower kick panel under the door. I hope this helps some. Good luck and let me know what you find.
