Re: water not very hot

Yes there is a heater in the dishwasher, but I am suprised it goes through the cycle if it is not heating. for this reason I would suspect that it is a thermostat problem. these are situated underneath the machine. you will need a test meter, to have an engineer do this repair it should cost no more than 70 pound.

My wash cycles are not cleaning dishes because water is not hot enough. Wash times have sometimes increased for same cycle.

It might be your dishwasher detergent. Try adding some TSP (tri-sodium phosphate) to your detergent.

Dishwasher deposits grit on inside of glasses on top rack

Hi, it sounds like your either using to much soap or the water is not hot enough. Use alittle less soap the next time and see if you have the same problem. Check the water temp after you machine fills for the wash the temp should be 120 or higher.
Clean out the filter and the back flush arm. Also clean the wash arms (every little hole.)

Kitchenaid dishwasher does not run; start/resume light keeps on flashing.

you will probably se the light flashes 7 times then pause and then repeats.this indicates that your unit did not heat the water correctly.
most likely youi dont have enough hot water going into the unit, 120degrees or more, or the latch is not engaging fully. check the temps and then the latch strike. its on the tank and is chrome type metal bracket.
it should be bent down towards the door frame until it just clears the door. if its too high it wont make the door switches work properly and then no heating of the water.
try it.
to get rid of the flashing, push the high temp wash, air dry, high temp wash, air dry. then it will go thru a test cycle and back to normal.
takes about 7-10 minutes.

I have a new Frigidaire FDB1050RE diswasher. I ran it for the first time set on normal wash and pressing both the Hi-temp wash and heat dry button. This cycle is supposed to take a total of 89 minutes to...

It should still work pretty well but you probably can't use the high temp wash because it will take too long for the dishwasher to heat up the water enough to satisfy the high temp washer thermostat. If the thermostat's calibrated closing temperature isn't reached the dishwasher will just keep running. One thing you should do to improve washing results is to run the nearest tap (probably the kitchen sink) until the water is at it's hottest and then run the dishwasher so the first fill will be hot rather than warm.

Dishwasher runs for 3 hours

Are you using the high wash temp setting? I was having the same problem with my dishwasher while using that setting. Apparently, it will run until the temp gets to its required number. And my hot water heater was set to not go that far. So my dishwasher would run and run. I fixed it by not using that setting any more.

Frigidaire FDB635RBB heat wash/heat rinse

Most DW today take a minimum of 90 minutes. Run the hot water from the sink until it gets hot, then start the DW, this will shorted the first wash cycle. It is not uncommon for the DW to run 2hrs or more based upon the water temperature entering the DW and the soil level of the items in the DW.
