Wont drain water \


Several problems could cause this; 1. kinked or clogged drain hose. 2. Food or foreign object(such as bone is blocking the drain housing). 3. Defective pump. 4. Defective drain valves on some models. 5. Hose was installed on a new disposal and the drain connecting plug was not removed from the disposal before the hose was installed? 6. Some models use reversible motors in which the motor spun the pump Clock-Wise to wash and would stop and restart Counter-Clock-Wise to drain. But I think yours uses a drain valve, which could be clogged or defective. 7. Outside chance but a timer(control) could be defective. More that likely it is a clog or blockage.

My GSX4756 dishwasher seemed to stop mid cycle and the start light is flashing. I have pressed the start button until the light goes out but as soon as I close the door it starts again on the rinse cycle...


I think.
However, rarely have I encountered an inlet valve that emitted a burning smell. So I'd expect there to be some other problem in there.
But, if the inlet valve didn't pass the test, then it needs to be replaced. Plus, if it was stuck on the rinse cycle and the valve was out, then that is where the cycle would hang up.
Burning smells usually come from a motor, a belt, shorted wiring or a heating element. So if everything else checks out, then go for replacing the valve. The instructions are included in our dishwasher repair section.

In the bottom of the wash tub there is a float that trips the fill solenoid on and off. More often than not food particles manage to build up on the stem of the float assy and cause the symptom you describe.

Other possibilities are the water valve itself and the opening of the supply line (usually at the faucet shut off) that can be clogged with rust from plumbing in the home.

Lastly if there is an internal failure of the timer it can also cause this.

You can remove the lower kick panel to gain access to the water valve. Remove power long enough to disconnect the 2 water valve solenoid wires and check for voltage when the unit should be filling. If you have voltage re-connect the solenoid.

After checking the solenoid toward the front of the unit on locate the float switch assy. It will be a micro-switch with 2 wires on it. Move the float GENTLY up and down. This switch should click as the float nears the top of its' travel and again just as you begin lowering the float. No click = no fill.

Remember to reinstall the kick panel when work is complete.

Just be careful when dealing with live circuits.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Water didnt drain from frigidaire dishwasher model FDB989GFC


Hello!

If your dishwasher does you need to check all this parts:

1. Check sink drain and drain hose for restrictions
The drain hose and recirculation hoses can be responsible for leaks. The drain hose can cause the dishwasher to fail to drain properly. The recirculation hose can be responsible for problems with poor rinsing of dishes.
2. Unjam the motor
3. Unjam the pump
4. Check the drain valve
5. Check the drive belt
6. Test the timer motor
If you have a brand new dishwasher or garbage disposer, check the knock out plug on the garbage disposer.

My Frigidaire dishwasher doesn't drain completely after it cycles through completely. This is a new dishwasher just installed it a couple days ago.


Drain line/air gap
A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.

Pump
Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support.Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up the pump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replace them.

Drain valve and/or solenoid
Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.


Timer
Part of what the timer does is control the motor and drain valve. If the timer doesn't work properly, the water may not drain and you need to replace the timer. This problem is uncommon.

Dishwasher always fills to float valve


There are actually several possible causes of your problem. I will briefly describe each in hopes that you can isolate the problem and will then know how to proceed.

If the water doesn't drain from your dishwasher, check these:

Drain line/air gap
Pump
Drain valve and/or solenoid
Belt
Motor
Timer
Drain line/air gap A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.

Pump Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support.

Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up the pump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replace them.

Drain valve and/or solenoid Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.

Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.

Belt One brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. If this belt is broken or has fallen off, replace it.

Motor If the motor isn't turning or working, the unit won't drain. First check to be sure you have power to the dishwasher. If not, see the section "It doesn't work at all." If the motor hums but doesn't turn, it may need to be replaced.

Some dishwashers are susceptible to getting stuck if you don't run them regularly. If you haven't run the dishwasher for more than a week, you may need to manually spin the motor to free it up. If the motor is defective, you need to replace it. Dishwasher motors can't be serviced.

Timer Part of what the timer does is control the motor and drain valve. If the timer doesn't work properly, the water may not drain and you need to replace the timer. This problem is uncommon.

The dishwasher make noise but no water is comming out


Hello
Welcome to Fixya
My name is Huum,


here are a list of the four most common reasons for this problem!

Defective Timer
The timer is a series of switches that controls all machine functions. If one of the contacts in the timer is defective, the machine will lose that function. knowledge of the the use of a vol/tohmmeter is essential to testing the timer as well as the ability to read the timer sequence chart that is supplied with the machine. In most cases this requires a professional technician.

Defective water inlet valve
If there is 110v across the two wires on the water inlet valve when the machine is set to fill, the valve should open and the water should enter into the machine. If the water does not enter, the valve is defective.

Float Switch
The float switch allows water to enter into the machine to a point where the float will rise up off of the switch and disconnect power to the water inlet valve. If the switch is defective or the float is stuck in the up position, the water will not enter into the machine.

Water Source Turned Off
Check to ensure the water source is turned on and water is getting to the water inlet valve.

Frigidaire FDB710LCS0 Dishwasher dial seems to stick?


I had the same problem. Turn the HIGH TEMP buttons off. Simply turning them off corrected this problem for me. Mine got stuck in two places and I had to manually turn the dials or the washer would run all night.

Frigidaire dishwasher dirty & sticks in cycle


First, check the holes on the upper spray arm. They should be clear of food and debris.
Next, There's a check valve (ball) built into the motor unit. Either it's stuck, or the motor isn't pausing at the appropriate time to switch from bottom spray to top spray. You can test the check valve by opening the door momentarily while it's running. The spray noise inside should sound distinctly different. Pausing longer will switch back to the lower spray arm.
If the check valve works, you'll need a new timer.
