Frigidaire dishwasher sanitize option not always working

The sanitized light only comes on once in awhile when the load is finished. It used to come on after every wash. Now it only comes on every few washes. They told me at Frigidaire it was because my water is hot enough so it doesn't need to sanitize them. But that doesn't make sense because it used to come on all the time.

    After running once a sanitized cycle, now everytime I run the dishwasher in the normal cycle at the end of the cycle the sanitize light will come on. The sanitize option is not chosen, only the normal wash.

    The sanitize light on my new Jenn-air dishwasher has never come on. The water temp is 150C.

    Same problem: we select high temp and sanitize, but the sanitize light does not come on after a wash.

You don't need an additive.
The sanitized LED itself is probably out.
It will not light up if the sensor doesn't sense that the water has reached 155 F. If the dishes are getting clean, I assume the heater is working properly. You could have a failed sensor, but you would usually notice longer than normal wash times and the dishwasher getting hotter than usual.
Alternately press heat dry and hi temp scrub 4 times. This puts washer into diagnostic mode. The first thing that happens is all the LED's light up. If it lights up then it is ok and the problem is somewhere else.
If these instructions don't apply to your machine, please post the complete model number from the decal just inside the front of the tub and I will look it up for you.

#FDB1500LFB2 does not dry dishes after sanitize


Hey friend, I appreciate your post!

From my understanding your Frigidaire dishwasher, FDB1500LFB2, is not drying dishes after the sanitize cycle. Check to make sure the heat dry option has been selected on your dishwasher panel. I would also check to make sure that the rinse aid dispenser has been filled.

Assure that the temperature going into your dishwasher is 120 degrees, which you can verify by using the sink closest to your dishwasher. If all of that checks out I would suggest seeking assistance from a professional for further diagnosis and repair. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

My Frigidaire dishwasher - most buttons don't work and clean and sanitized lights are flashing after cycle completes.


Hello Rich - From what you have described if only some cycles are working, then there seems to be a communication problem coming from the main control panel, I would suggest contacting a professional technician to diagnose the unit.

Unknown control panel symbols bosch dishwasher super silent


Wash Cycle Options

Delay Start (model dependent):



This option allows you to delay the start time of your dishwasher up

to 19 hours.

Sanitize:



The Sanitize feature is available only in the Heavy, Auto, Normal and Half Load cycles. Press the

"Sanitize Option" button to activate the Sanitation features during these cycles. The technical sanitation

measures may also improve the drying results. The sanitize LED or The "Water Pipe" symbol will light when sanitation

requirements are met.

Note: The dishwasher automatically defaults to Auto Wash when turned off and back on. If you used the sanitize option
in your last cycle, the dishwasher will default to Auto Wash with the Sanitize option selected when you turn it on.

To achieve proper drying, always use a liquid rinse aid, even if your detergent contains a rinse aid or

drying additive.



Note: The dishwasher indicates low rinse aid by turning on the Refill Rinse Aid indicator LED (for units without

a display) or The "Spray Looking" symbol (for units with a display).

If this light is on, you need to refill the rinse aid dispenser

I got the idea that the "squiggly arrow" has something to do with the sanitize feature also. If you post your model number "on the inside right hand side of your dishwasher door" I'll go get your manual and post the link here. Hope this helps so far! :)

Try putting the unit into a test mode. This my clear your issues otherwise call for service.

One of two ways to do this.
In standby (no lights) Press the combination of buttons:
hi temp wash > sanitize > hi temp wash > sanitize > hi temp wash
All lights will come on and the washer will run a test cycle anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes.
If that button comb doesn't work use:
heated dry > sanitize > heated dry > sanitize > heated dry

To clean can I 1) hose it down with a dishwasher


This isn't recommended, meat tends to get in a lot of the nooks and crannies in a slicer machine. It's best to first unplug the machine, then take it a part in order to properly clean it. If your not sure how to take the machine apart, consult the user's manual for further understand how to do it. Once taken apart, some sort of stainless steal cleaner followed by a sanitizing soap should be used to clean it. Sanitizer is very important especially when dealing with meat products. Once a sanitizer is applied it is recommend that you let the slicer air dry for 4-6 hours before using it again to ensure the sanitizer has fully dissipated.

Some models have options that may require a water heating delay, such as Hi-Temp Wash, Hi-Temp Rinse, or Sanitize. Additional time may be required to heat the water to the proper temperature. The dishwasher will continue to circulate water during this heating delay but the timer will not advance until the proper temperature is reached
