Question about Frigidaire 24 in. GLD2162RDC Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

Frigidaire Dishwasher Hi, I have installed a new model GLD2250RDC0 Frigidaire dishwasher and it will not start. Power and water supply is connected. When I push the cycle button for Normal the light comes on but when I push Start nothing happens except the "hi-temp wash" and "no heat dry" lights flash. I assume this is some kind of troubleshooting code but the manual does not cover this and I am in Honduras so service is non existent. Any ideas? By the way, I was a builder in the States for 25 years and have installed countless appliances so I know it was done correctly.

SOURCE: Problem starting fridgidaire model FDB1050REC2

hello kwill8
welcome to Fixya.

You said, You just installed the dishwasher and the only cycle it will go through is the rinse cycle. When You turn the dial to any of the other cycles:pots&pans, normal, light wash and upper rack, the start button as well as the heat dry button and the high temp button do not work. only button that will light up when pressed is the delay button. How can you fix this?

Is this your model FDB1050REC2This is a brand new model and you said you just installed it!
If it is brand new!
You do not have to fix it.
You have a full years warranty, parts and labor!let them fix it no cost to you.
The first thing they will do, . You can do your self!

Go to the breaker and turn it off for 5 minutes and then on again. This should reset the system and this usually is the end to most bad starts!

try it!

SOURCE: "Clean light" keeps blinking; dishwasher won't start new cycle

I had the same issue. I tried a lot of different things, including making sure that the arms weren't obstructed, etc.

Then, I switched the breaker off for a few seconds and turned it back on... and it worked ?!?!? I don't know why it happened, but I'm sure glad that fixed it.

SOURCE: Frididair GLD2250RDC0 The lights on

Sounds like the very common control panel issue. They have a tendency to short out due to overheating. It is possible it is the motor is bad, you can test power to motor with a voltmeter. If no power, then try power from control panel to motor. If there is power to motor, than motor is bad.

SOURCE: Flashing "Washing" light on my frigidaire 1000 series dishwasher

Possible solution. I had the same problem of "washing" light flashing last year and now today. Warranty has been expired for awhile, so no harm in trying. What worked for my situation was removing the six screws for the back of the plastic control cover. Take of the plastic cover. There are are two connectors to the HANDLE with white and black wires. To be safe I would shut off the ciruit to the dishwasher. Safety first. Carefully disconnect and inspect the contacts inside the connectors. Do not insert any metal objects if you left the power on. I believe that the moisture from the dishwasher can degrade the connectivity. I cleaned the contacts with q-tips and re-installed. Be careful to not bend the contacts. If you had sound, you could hear my dishwasher running. Total cost is about three cents. I believe that the connectors do not full close when corroded, which prevents the completion of the circuit to the controlls. The flashing light indicates that the door is open, when in fact it is closed. Hopefully this will help someone. Semper Fi

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.

Just got a new Bosch dishwasher (forget which model). After the dishwashing cycle has ended (even long after), the dishwasher and dishes are still wet. Was this an installation problem? Thanks

Hi -
I can't see how any installation problem would cause this - if the dishes are still wet at the end of the cycle, you'll probably find the water isn't heating during the wash cycle. The dishwasher uses steam to heat the washing compartment and dry the dishes. It would appear that the dishwasher isn't heating water internally.
Even if the washer was accidentally connected to the cold water supply ** (see note), this shouldn't happen as regardless of the water supply temperature, the washer should still heat the water to the correct temperature internally.
** UK dishwashers should be connected to the cold water supply. For US installations, dishwashers are commonly connected to the hot water supply. For other locations, please consult your installation instructions.
I suggest you start a regular wash cycle and leave it to run for 10-15 minutes. Then open the door and test the temperature of the water in the base of the washer by hand. The water should be hot and there should be steam present in the washer when you open the door.
If the water is cold or only warm, the water isn't being heated internally or isn't heating to the correct temperature, in which case you should contact the retailer or Bosch Service immediately for a replacement. Do not accept an offer of repair on a brand new washer!
Additionally, do not attempt to repair the dishwasher yourself when under warrantly as this will invalidate the warranty.
Hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please let me know your location and the model number of the washer. This should be laser-etched into the top of the door if you can't find it on any of your paperwork.
Regards, BElectric

Have model PLDB999AC0 water is not coming on

Is the supply turned on and power applied to the dishwasher? Make sure you've turned the angle stop to open the lines and supply the dishwasher with water. If this is a new problem and it had previously been working alright, then you're looking into a problem with the timer or motor. The motor contains a solenoid that activates a gate to allow water to flow into the dishwasher basin. Remove the kick plate and watch the motor as you allow the dishwasher to run it's cycle. You'll see it go up and down and probably hear a loud hollow sonnd when it activates. Also, make sure the motor is running, and if it's bound, try using a screwdriver to jump start the motor. If it starts up, this sometimes fixes the problem, but it may just put off the inevitable replacement.

Frigidaire D/W. Model fd8750rcc0

hi Dishwashers usually run on 115-volt or 120-volt power. The water they use comes directly from the water heater, and wastewater is drained into the sink's drainpipe. The dishwasher is not connected to the cold-water supply. For best dishwashing results, set the temperature control of the water heater to no less than 140 degrees Farenheit. Water cooler than this usually doesn't get the dishes clean, unless your dishwasher is a newer model that preheats incoming water. The water shutoff for the dishwasher is typically located below the adjoining sink.

Frigidaire Dishwasher Problem

by the sounds of it.i think the water inlet valve that lets water into the machine has gone faulty leaving water slowly seep into the machine, you could either replace this valve..or a cheaper solution if you can access the rear of the machine most water supplies would have a small value installed on the incomming supply,you could simply turn off the water till the next time u need to use it.

No power to dishwasher

depends on the sequence. many, but not all, dishwashers start with drain to get rid of the slops. if yours starts with fill, then no water supply will prevent progress.(you should be able to hear a low hum which is the valve energised) check also that the door is closing properly and latching. better to use cold water fill not hot
