The most common problem with dishwashers, and especially frigidaire/electrolux units is this; Do it yourselfers or even so called Pro-installers remove the loop that was intentionally secured to the outside of the tub (usually to gain "extra" drain line, however not ALL units use this method...frigidaire DOES) hence allowing water to flow back into the unit after the darin pump has stopped. The "loop" is there to prevent this (minor back flow) from happening. you can easily remove the unit and resecure this loop along the side and add some hose to the end of the line if needed, but the loop should be present. (it can also cause pre-mature drain pump failure over time, depending on pumping distance and volume needed to pump thru line)

good luck,

hope that helps

Gritty film left on almost all dishes, rinse aid level seems to always remain at full, but apparently not rinsing well.


The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com to find out more info.

Spray arms do not turn. water to them but not


I had the same problem and fixed it by disassembling the lower spray arm and return filter, and cleaning all the junk out.
Most dishwashers have 'risers' that bring the water up to the top sprayer or arm located under the top rack. If the recirculating pump is plugged even a little there won't be enough volume or pressure to get the water up there.
Test this by putting a dry muffin pan in the top rack, flat, and running the dishwasher for a bit. If there is no water on the top (or the bottom) either the top sprayer or the sprayer arm underneath the top rack is not getting enough volume.
To fix this you need to clean out the screen and filter, where the water returns to be recirculated. If you don't have any confidence to remove the parts and clean it out yourself, get an appliance repair person to do the job.

My dishwasher does not completely drain. It leaves about 3 inches of standing water. What could be causing this?


Without knowing the model of this GE ? dishwasher, it is very hard to be specific. Most DWs have a float/switch that sense when the dishwasher is filled and empty of water. They can fail.
If you can run a cycle without the dishwasher over flowing but it simply does not fully drain, I would pull the lower spray arm and the filter beneath that arm. Look closely for debris that could be blocking the pump. SOme dishwashers simply have a timer that controls each phase of the wash, including the drain cycle. If something is blocking the drain pump, an obstruction could cause this problem.
Good Luck, Please report back with what you find.

Lg dishwashers


The LG dishwashers have a perminant mesh filter just below the bottom spray arm.
The filter can be removed by removing the spray arm by pulling straight up, then removing 10 phillips screws. Whenever you remove the filter, inspect for debris beneath the filter (including hard to see broken glass.)

What did you find the problem to be?
On an LG dishwasher, I am not aware of an E0 error. But there is a "OE" error code (as in output error)
The first thing to check is the lower sump area - remove the filter beneath the spray arm and look everywhere for blockages that have slipped through. If that is not the problem, the drain motor has probably failed.
Good Luck!

Frigidare Dishwasher/rolls around


Nick, check the spray arms themselves to make sure they are not clogged, cracked or split. You have a seperate wash and drain motor on this model. It could be the filter under the lower spray arm is completely clogged with food gunk. You would have to remove the spray arm and get down to the filter. The wash motor itself has a small impeller on the end. It may be broken or the motor itself is bad. You would have to pull the dishwasher, the wash motor comes off very easily with just a couple of screws and you can examine the impeller. Catriver...post back
