Frigidare dishwasher did not spin


  1. Waste Disposal/Sink trap
    • Empty your food waste disposal unit if your dishwasher's hooked up to one. If it's not empty, the old food inside it will back water up into your machine. Check that your sink trap isn't blocked by unscrewing it from the base of your sink if you don't have a food waste disposal unit. Make sure your dishwasher or any other appliances connected to it are not running when you do so.
    Incomplete Cycle
    • You may have opened your dishwasher's door mid-cycle before it's had a chance to drain. Check the progress indicator on your machine's control panel. The structure of this will differ depending on which Frigidaire model you're using, but it should show the point your machine has reached in its cycle. If this is the cause of the problem, close your dishwasher's door and let it finish.
    Drainage Pipe
    • Inspect the drain pipe that runs from your machine to your waste disposal unit or sink. If this is kinked or has been squashed under another appliance or a base unit, the waste water inside your dishwasher will be unable to escape. Check that water can flow through your waste pipe freely.
    Filter
    • Remove the bottom shelf from inside your machine and take out the plate covering the filter area. If you don't rinse your plates before you put them into your washer, food debris could block your filter and stop water from reaching your drainage pipe. You can unblock your filter with your fingers. Turn off your machine's power before you attempt to do so.

Water from the sink fills up the dish washer


I had a similar problem with a washing machine, until I replumbed my waste pipes. My Washing Machine waste pipe was attached to the down pipe just under the sink bowl. I found that the U bend trap was too high and the water level in the U-bend was at the same level as the Washing machine waste pipe was attached. So we has syphoning back into the washing machine. I moved the U bend trap down by 3 inches 7 cm, so now the water leaves the washing machine falls the 3 inches to the water level of the U bend. We now have no more syphoning back into the washing machine.

Wixl123 does not drain after washing ?


Drainage problems can be caused by:
a) Blocked Filter chamber
b) Blocked Sump
c) Blocked Drain Pipe

d) Blocked waste pipe
e) Failed Pump

You can check the sump and drain pipe are not blocked by disconnecting the drain pipe from the undersink trap or waste pipe and lowering to a bowl on the floor. The water should drain out into this bowl under gravity if there are no blockages. Bear in mind if you have disconnected the drain pipe from an undersink pipe if youpour the drained water down the sink it will flood into your undersink cupboard. If this drains then you check the waste pipe or undersink trap is clear. You should also check the filter chamber if it is accessible on your washing machine (not all are). I would recommend you unplug the machine or take the fuse out of the switched socket before doing this. Drain the drum as above before doing this or you will get a gush of water coming out. You will usually have to remove a cover from the bottom of your machine to get to the filter chamber and twist it ant-clockwise to unscrew it. Check for any coins buttons etc trapped in there. If there is nothing there check the impeller will turn relatively easily by hand. If you still can't find the problem you might have a faield pump and I would recommend contacting an enginee

Wasing machine fills with water during washing and wont pump out filling the drum...


1. Empty the drum via the filter / trap at the front (there is sometimes a drain pipe near the filter - otherwise be prepared to use lots of towels to soak up the water).
2. Check / clean the filter.
3. Ensure that the drainage pipe is not blocked.
4. Check that the pipe from the pump to the waste water pipe is not kinked / blocked.
5. Check that the pipe from the drum to the pump is not blocked.
6. Does the pump sound like it's trying to work? If not, it could be that the pump is dead. Pumps can often become blocked with fluff / slime from the machine.

Good luck!

The screen is flashing F3, what does this mean?


the drain pump of the washing machine is either got loose or its not working or the drain pump is blocked. Water outlet fault (Grey Hose) If F3 is flashing in the display, there is a problem with drainage. Check: • that no objects are stuck in the drainage hose outlet. • that the drainage pump is not blocked by foreign objects. Clean the pump (see the "CLEAN THE PUMP" chapter MENTIONED BELOW FOR MORE HELP). • that there are no kinks in the drainage hose. ------------------ CLEAN THE PUMP Checking the trap and drainage pump The washing machine has a trap, where coins, hairpins and the like can get caught. To clean the filter and drainage pump: 1. Make sure the machine is empty of water and that it is switched off at the mains. 2. Open the hatch for the drainage pump as shown in the illustration. 3. Drain out the water, into a bowl, for example, by unhooking the drainage hose from the pin inside the hatch. 4. Unscrew the cover anti-clockwise and remove. 5. Remove any foreign objects from the trap and pump assembly. Check to see that the pump blades, right at the back, will rotate. 6. Screw on the cover, replace the drainage hose on the hatch pin and close the hatch.
---------- This will help.please do rate the solution if helped.keep updated for further assistance.
