FDR252RBS2 dishwasher has new motor but won't drain - what else could it be?

Struggling to fix a Frigidaire dishwasher FDR252RBS2 without spending a fortune (which I don't have). Wasn't draining at beginning of cycle. Drain tube is clear thru to drain (no disposall). The motor was turning in both directions, but no water drained. I opened assembly on top of motor and found that the plastic shaft that transmits torque thru the floor from the motor to the impellers was broken. Couldn't find a number for that part (the uppermost plastic part on no.18 on the Parts Catalog 5995434445 at http://www.frigidaire.com/products/resultspage.asp?strmodel=FDR252RB) or how to buy it online, but had to buy the whole Welling motor assembly. When I put in the new motor, I had the same problem. What else could it be? Thx greatly. :Dani

    Same problem here. It looks like it's an impeller to me. The shaft that screw number 27 (diagram at ftp://ftp.electrolux-na.com/ProdInfo_PDF/Kinston/5995434445.pdf page 8) goes into has melted. I need this part but I am having difficulty finding it. The impeller is 3 3/8" wide, flat on the top, and has 1/4" deep fins on the bottom. Can anyone help please?

SOURCE: Frigidaire Dishwasher won't drain

Try cleaning out the drain line behind the dishwasher, this is a very common problem with draining. If not that then might need a valve or if you have a new garbage disposal you need to punch out a peice of the plastic or it wont drain. Hope this helped, good luck

SOURCE: Frigidaire dishwasher impeller melted! Can't find replacement part!

I have the same problem and after talking to a local service center and doing some online research (remember: Google is your friend) I have discovered this is considered a non-serviceable part and you must buy the entire motor. The impeller comes with the motor. This is probably not the answer you were hoping but is what you have to do. With that said, I plan to JB Weld the ****** back on the motor shaft!

Frigidaire Gallery Series Dishwasher - unit stops near the final rinse cycle without draining - "ER" on front display, all led indicators on front display also lit (e.g. low rinse agent, etc.),...


the problem is within the electronic control. Steam leaks in, due to an improper seal ring. Humidity stay in the compartment and eventually, the contact on the wire ribbon corrodes.
it can also be the new electronic module.
If the electronic module is ok, then the only working solution require that you order and install a "fit kit" from Frigidaire.

Some models even have a recall made form Frigidaire. Better check with them.

Good luck!

How can I interrupt my dishwasher cycle without causing it drain out all the water and then have to start from the beginning?


Hey friend, thank you for the post!
From my understanding you are trying to interrupt your dishwasher cycle without causing it to drain all the water out and then have to start it from the beginning. Once the door has been opened the wash cycle will stop and once it has been closed again your appliance would start up where the cycle left off. Hope this is helpful - Matt

Belt, Water Pump Although few dishwashers have a water pump belt, if the dishwasher won't drain there might be a worn or broken water pump belt. After removing the lower kick panel the motor can be seen in the front, the water pump belt is on the bottom of the motor.

Drain Pump If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain pump might be defective. Test the pump motor with an Ohm meter. Drain pumps are not repairable, if it's defective it will need to be replaced.

Drain Impeller The drain impeller is attached to the pump and pushes the water out of the dishwasher, through the drain tube and into the garbage disposer or drain line. If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain impeller might be broken or worn out. Replace both the impeller and seal at the same time.

Drain Solenoid Kit If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain solenoid kit might need to be replaced. The drain solenoid is an actuator that opens a flap to allow the water to drain.
Drain Valve The drain valve can get clogged with debris and should be cleaned out if the dishwasher won't drain. If it seems clear of debris but won't actuate, it will need to be replaced. The drain valve is not repairable Pump and Motor Assembly If the dishwasher won't drain, the pump and motor assembly might be defective. If the motor runs during the drain cycle, check for a blockage in the drain line. If the motor won't run during the drain cycle or if it just hums when it should be running, the pump and motor assembly might need to be replaced.

Clogged or Improperly Installed Garbage Disposer If the dishwasher won't drain and the garbage disposer was installed recently, the installer might have forgotten to knock out the drain plug from this disposer. All garbage disposers are sold with a solid plug in the drain tube for situations where a dishwasher isn't connected. However, if the dishwasher is connected, the plug will need to be removed. If the disposer wasn't replaced recently, remove the dishwasher drain hose from the disposer and clean out both the fitting on the disposer and the end of the drain hose. These are the most common places to find an obstruction if the dishwasher won't drain.

Check Valve If the dishwasher won't drain the check valve might be stuck closed. The check valve is a small plastic device which prevents water from returning to the dishwasher after it has drained. If the valve gets stuck closed, it will prevent the water from draining. The check valve is the device that the drain hose is attached to on the dishwasher.

Check Ball If the dishwasher won't drain the check ball might be stuck. The check ball is a small plastic ball in the check valve which prevents water from returning to the dishwasher after it has drained. If the ball gets stuck, it will prevent the water from draining also. The check valve is the device that the drain hose is attached to on the dishwasher.

Dish washer does not drain


Our dushwasher did the same recently and I found a toothpick had jammed the drain pump impeller. because it had seperate drain and wash pumps, the wash cycle would work but not the drain cycle.

I had to pull the dishwasher out to get at the drain pump. Fortunately my pump seperates into two parts so I could clean it without having to redo the drain plumbing.

Water does not completely drain after a wash cycle. Everything else seems to work just fine.


Hi
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.
