Frigidaire Ultra Quiet 111 - ground up dirt on dishes

Hi -

After I run the dishwasher, there are brown dirt particles on the surfaces of my dishes, especially on the top rack. You can see the dirt floating in the water on the tops of cups. I have cleaned the filter twice and changed dishwasher detergents. HELP!

Thanks

    I have the same issue. There is a fine sandy dusting of dirt on my dishes, especially on the top rack after "washing".

Remove the bottom plate near the floor. You can then look in under the dishwasher machine. The feet are adjustable up/down with a wrench most of the time. The dishwasher machine should tilt slightly away from the over flow sensor. In this case, Frigidaire Ultra Quiet, the rear feet should be lowered, or the front feet raised. If you have a machine with the over flow sensor on the bottom, at the back, tilt your machine slightly forward. Use detergent that dissolves food proteins. Problem solved.

Why do my frigidaire ultra quiet ii does not dry?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# FDB1050REC, is not drying your dishes. I also see you want to know which part needs to be replaced. Typically, this is not a do it yourself repair, as there are no step by step instruction manuals. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose and determine what exactly is causing your appliance to not dry the dishes. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

I have a frigidaire Ultra Quiet 111 and the soap dispenser will not latch. It will not close at all.


Hi Hulo - Sounds like the dispenser detergent drawer latch may possibly be damaged or broken. Consult a professional to accurately diagnosis the unit and assist with the repairs.

There is food and grit stuck to my glasses. Where is this coming from? I am rinsing all the dishes before I put them in , so it must be in the dishwasher somewhere,


We used to have this problem with a Kenmore that had a built-in "garbage disposal"--it was a little blade that ground up larger food particles. Occasionally a cherry or olive pit would get inside and dull, chip or break the blade, and the symptom was food particles on the dishes. The solution was to replace the grinder.

your spray arms are blocked with food debris and not turning to check this put appliance on for a few mins and check position of spray arms i bet the top one isnt moving, the very end holes are particulary important as they drive the arms round under water pressure.

TOP RACK NOT CLEANING DISHES


Possible that the motor impeller has good particles in it, causing poor water pressure, which would be most evident on the top rack. You would have to remove the spray arm, then the filter, then the torx screws to get at impeller....unfortunately, that model of dishwasher isn't the greatest in the first place for washing, since it only has the one spray arm.

Maytag dishwasher quiet series 400. Dishes have hard stuck on grit and food particles after rinsed and dried.


Very common problem is soap build up in these machines. Try putting it into a wash cycle with no dishes, and no soap. Let it wash for about 5 minutes, and then open the door. If you see alot of soap suds, then soap build up is the problem. Try doing a couple loads with no soap, and no dishes, and throw a cup of vinegar into the machine halfway through the wash. Repeat as necessary. This should solve your problem.
