Question about Frigidaire 24 in. FDB1050RE Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Door opening too far.

I'm not sure what model Frididaire dishwasher I have, but when the door is opened all the way, it is not parallel to the floor, but slopes down toward the floor slightly. This causes the bottom rack to roll out rapidly and I've had to catch it on a few occasions so that it doesn't fly out onto the floor. The maintenance man at my apartment complex told me that the door sloping is normal. Is there a fix for this problem or is it indeed normal and I'll have to learn to live with it?

Why does door open too far and is not horizontal to the floor when open?

Besides spring streaches out over time or one rope breaks. Their are like three spots to hook spring to get tension for door. I just replaces both ropes as one broke and hooked springs in middle hole. Takes more time to pull washer out then to replace the ropes

Dishwasher shutting off during cycle, seems the door is not closed tight enough. If I apply pressure to hold the door tighter it will continue the cycle.

sounds like fatigued or tweaked hinges. Take a good look at the door when it's open without the bottom rack pulled out. It should be parallel to the floor. If it is past paralell... check hinges. See if they can be adjusted.

The door on my Frigidaire dishwasher recently began opening too far. It slants toward the floor, a few degrees past level. Looking at it, however, nothing seems to be broken or missing. The springs are...

I have the same problem. The springs look intact. Maybe some stepped on the door when it was opened and it stretched the springs. I'm going to replace them and see what happens

Door closes to fast and sometimes re-opens by itself

A couple possibilities here. Make sure the door spring isn't broken. Your door is traveling too far in the down direction and when it hits the floor the safety sensor reverses it to the open position. The down limit adjustment is on the side of the motor unit.

Door opens all the way down does not stop

The door is very simple as you already know. The only adjustment is with the springs. If they are in place and the door still drops too low (and probably very quickly stopping with a jar) then the springs are over stretched. This does happen over time.

Take one off and go to a hardware store. Look for ones slightly shorter to replace. Springs are springs so if they fit you are good to go. Or go to a parts shop and purchase replacement parts.

Please rate if this helps you.

Leaking from the lower right hand side during rinse cycle.

I had the problem with dribbles of water from the right side lower edge of the door, causing puddles across the floor.
Found there was a RECALL on MDB6000AWW models. The door inside panel was replaced by the dealer for free. No more puddles.

If the garage door is hitting the floor and reversing to the open position you need to adjust the 'down limit' which is on the side of the motor unit. Turn it in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover. A little tweaking should get it just right.

Garage door won't close

your door travel screw is set to go too far on the downward travel. you need to set the down travel. It is set to go too far down. find the screw adjustment on the unit that says close and back off the screw a full turn until door stops short of floor. then start turning screw other way until door just touvhes floor.
