Frigidaire model FDB2810LDC1 dishwasher does not dry the dishes, the heater element is not working

I found that this dishwasher has a "re-setting" style thermostat, how do I test this with my Fluke 87 Mult-meter? What type resistance should I see or not see?

It sounds like theres not enough water in the machine if you are on hot water connection and it to hot you can damge the valve,try starting the dishwasher then when it starts to wash open the door a put in a few extra liters of water in and see if it sounds like its washing stronger that wont fix the problem but it will let you know if its a water inlet fault.sometimes you have to connect a dishwasher to cold water and they all heat themselves.ive had one bosch that was playing up because of the water temp going in and the pressure.if theres not enough water in it you will get a poor wash and not wash the soap out of the dispenser.hope this helps.ian

hi there aaliyazaidi2.is the water clear or dirty that you find in the dishwasher?there are two ways this could be happening.1,if the water is dirty[although it dose not have to be ,but its a sure clue]its you drain line of your dishwasher.what happens is because the drain line is lower than the sink drain, when you use your sink water runs by way of gravity in to the drain hose and then fills up your dishwasher,till you drain it or wash a load...to solve this problem you need too make a loop as we repairman call it.get some zip ties ,or what ever[string] and tie your drain hose off at the top off the sink under the sink cabinet[imagin your drain hose as a roller coaster, the hose coming from the dishwasher is the start of the coaster before it goes to the top of the big hill.what you want to do is ,at the top of the roller coaster hill,tie your drain hose to what ever you can under you sink causing a hill so when your hose goes back down ,it ends up into your disposer or what ever plumbing it ends up into.[hay i hope i helped you understand what i mean their];#2,the other way is your dishwasher water valve may not be sealing well. the water would only be clear if this was the issue and could be warm water because its only hot water to the dishwasher.what happens here is because the water valve is not sealing water slowly adds to your dishwasher may be drops at a time,and over the hours gone by it accumulates and the you notice water in the tub.to solve this you replace the water valve.its[most of the time blue,but could be tan or white]under the dishwasher.the water line from your house goes to it.i hope this helps you you can email if you need more help. God bless ,tom

Hi,
I followed some of the good instructions already on Fixya. I had checked the heater and it was o.k. I then took the front door of the washer apart to get at the control box. Sure enough, I also had the common design fault. One leg of the rely had scorch marks and was now disconnected from the circuit board. I will solder tonight and test. I include a photo of the burned board. TNoel P8017c86.jpg

Dishwashere not drying


The vent is in the door and you need to remove the panel on the door. However, if you take the kick panel off the bottom, there should be a techincians guide attached to it and that shows all the tests etc that you can use to troubleshoot this.

Frigidaire diswasher not drying dishes properly


Make sure you have the heated dry setting selected, use rinse aid at all times, and make sure the unit is getting hot. If it is not, or there is no steam generated when you open the unit after cycle - have a professional diagnose the heating element.

My dish washer is 4 years old and is not cleaning dishes or disolving soap. HO appears in the status window which my manuel says indicates a water heat delay. How can this water heat delay be repaired ? ...


The water heat delay indication could be caused by the fact that the heating element has failed so that the washer will not proceed with the wash program until the water is up to the correct temperature. You should be able to tell if the element is getting hot. You could try manually putting in hot water before the washer fills up with cold to see if the wash then proceeds.

Kenmore Dishwasher model 665.16369300 won't dry dishes


can you tell me please if all the dishes aren't drying or just the ones on the top rack. i am assuming you have selected the dry at the control panel, if so, you may have a burned out heater element in the bottom of the dishwasher or a non functioning thermostat at the heater. let me know if I can help you further.

My Dishwasher does'nt dry my dishes.


How old is the dishwasher? Check the front control panel for a AIR DRY / HEAT DRY switch. Perhaps the switch is in the AIR DRY position. If so and you really want to HEAT DRY your dishes, set the switch for HEAT DRY. Otherwise: Second, it is not a bad thing to let your dishes AIR DRY. It saves money! Just open the Dish Washer door after the last rinse cycle has finished and let the dishes AIR DRY manually. In a hour or so they can usually be put away. Works for me :)
