Frigidaire Dishwasher FDB956RBC0

I just replaced the latch assembly on my Frigidaire dishwasher, now, it does not start. The green lights for the desired cycle work, however when you press the start button, nothing happens. A few seconds after pressing the start button, the green light goes off. Any suggestions?

I successfully replaced the broken handle for my ELECTROLUX 24" Built-In DISHWASHER Model FDB956RB.
Try to check to make sure you reassembled all the parts and wire connectors properly.
Other than the broken handle, did you have other problems prior to replacing the handle/latch?

I have just gotten this same model and I am having a lot of problems...I can select a cycle, but can only get it to start if I set it for delay start. It does not seem to be cleaning any dishes either.

Did you ever get it to work. I have the same model and I have just ordered a new latch to replace the broken one. Anything I should watch out for? Any tips?

Try opening the door and closing it to see if that clears the green light

Frigidaire dishwasher- panel lights up , but it won't come on. The cancel/drain button works, but not the start button.


Hello Friend, this is Z. I am happy to assist you!

I understand your dishwasher will not start. Let's try resetting your dishwasher by flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is necessary to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn on your dishwasher. Confirm that the door is securely closed and select a cycle. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, it could potentially mean a number of things: a potential wiring failure, damaged cord, faulty door latch assembly or control board. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose your dishwasher to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

Hope this helps!

Dishwasher's green clean light is on, it will not restart and there is some standing water on the bottom.


Good Morning Emma, thank you for your post!

Let's try resetting the dishwasher by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is important to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn dishwasher back on. Confirm that the door is properly latched and try selecting a cycle. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, it could potentially mean a number of things: a potential wiring failure, damaged cord, faulty door latch assembly, pump or control board. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would recommend contacting a professional to properly diagnose and repair the appliance.

Door latch not working on Frigidaire 18 in.


Hi -

The issue may lie with the door latch; a door switch is used to start and stop your dishwasher. It's a safety feature that won't allow water to flow with the door open. With a faulty door switch, there is a chance your dishwasher won't start at all. Dishwasher door switches are about an inch long. They are usually black but can be red. There are metal prongs on the body of the switch called terminals. Some door switches have two terminals and some have three. If your door switch is OK, check the timer assembly. This controls when and how long power is sent to other controls on your dishwasher. If these controls don't receive power, they won't work. The timer assembly contains a motor. Check this motor as well. It is often cheaper just to replace the timer motor rather than the complete assembly. My last suggestion is to check the cycle selector switches. These switches indicate cycles for washing, drying, and setting the temperature of the water. If one of your switches is the problem your dishwasher may not start. Dishwasher cycle selector switches tell the timer which cycle to run by opening and closing electrical circuits. Most selector switches are six to eight inches long. They are usually black and have terminals. By testing each one of these parts with an ohmmeter you should be able to determine why your dishwasher is not working. It is possible for other parts to fail but these are the most common parts to check. If any proves to be ineffective, I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.

When I press start the lights blink but the dishwasher doesn't start


Sounds like a faulty latch...dishwasher thinks the door is open, so it just flashes. I'd order and install a new latch assembly.

Dishwasher wont run after pressing START ... green light blinks


NOT TOTALLY SURE ABOUT THIS MODEL, BUT IS THERE A "LOCK" BUTTON ON THE PANEL? ON SOME MODELS YOU NEED TO PRESS IT TWICE TO ENGAGE START. HOW OLD IS THE UNIT? HAVE SEEN THE INTERNAL TIMER RELAY MALFUNCTION ALSO AND IT WILL NOT ALLOW DISHWASHER TO START CYCLES. HOPE THIS HELPS

The door on my dishwasher will not close


There are a few problems that can occur with the diswasher door assembly. These usually involve the latching mechanism, the door seal, the counterbalance spring assembly or the hinges. 1) The door latch plate can occasionally become out of alignment. Some door latch plates are adjustable, some aren't. If yours is adjustable, try loosening the retaining screws and repositioning the plate. It's trial-and-error, so have a lot of patience. If this doesn't work, then the latch needs replacing.
2) A new dishwasher or a newly installed door seal can be difficult to close for a while until the seal softens and compresses over time. You can try adjusting the latch, if possible.
3) If the door feels unusually heavy, there could be a problem with the counterbalance spring assembly. These counterbalance assemblies allow the door to open and close easier and are held by two springs. On some dishwasher models, holes are positioned in line so you can re-tension the springs by moving the spring hooks to other tensioning holes. If any of these springs break, they will need to be replaced as a pair.
4) The door hinges might be bent. They can seldom be adequately fixed and should be replaced.
hope this helps
