When you say you woke to water draining i assume the pump was activated if so you water valve is not shutting completely causing your dishwasher to gradually over fill this will cause your water level switch to activate the overfill stage and bring in your water pump have a close look and if this is the case replace water valve hope this helps let me know how you go

What would cause the inside of dishwasher to slowly fill with water even in off position.the water drains just fine, but after drained it will slowly start filling the bottom of dishwasher back up.


the water control solenoid unit has a faulty diaphragm in it allowing water to pass even though the power is off
replace it or turn the tap off after each use
call a technician for the proper diagnosis and repair

Dishwasher won't drain


Good Morning Jean,

I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# FFBD2411NS, draining. There are a few things I would suggest:

1) If the appliance is hooked up to a food waste disposer, make
sure the disposer is empty.
2) Check to see if the knockout plug has been removed
from inside the food waste disposer inlet.
3) Check to see if drain hose is kinked.
4) Check the glass trap filter to see if anything is preventing the water from draining.
5) Overfill Protector should move up and down freely about one inch. If it does not move, lift and clean underneath. Clean occasionally with
household cleaner containing vinegar or bleach to dissolve any buildup.

If none of these suggestions help your dishwasher to drain the water, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician.

-Best Regards-

Not draining at all. water collected at bottom of unit. tried "cancel/drain" numerous times and water remains at bottom of unit.


Possible blocked waste pipes or cycle pipes. but some specialist de-greaser and let it soak in dishwasher over nite - put dishwasher on in morning, repeat until its flushed.

After cycle is complete my dishwasher doesn't fully drain water.


If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).

Also, There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.

**Water temperature Note***

To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.

Concerning the Film(slimy looking substance).

This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside the dishwasher. Try cleaning you dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner. There are a few out there, Try Dishwasher Magic.

The dishwasher runs, but never seems to wash the dishes!


Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

Concerning the drainage issue(left over water at the bottom)


1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Water in bottom of dishwasher


You could have a defective fill valve that is not shutting off properly. Look for a fill inlet opening somewhere on the inside casing of the wash tub. Usually it is on the left hand side of the machine looking in. While the dishwasher is sitting idle, watch the fill valve opening to see if water is leaking in. It could be a minor as just a drip. However, over a period of several hours you could end up with a wash tub full of water. Over a weekend with no one home, it could overflow onto the floor. The valve usually cannot be repaired and would require replacing. Good luck.
