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

Start button not working


Good Morning Friend, thank you for your post!

I see that your Frigidaire dishwasher has power but will not start a cycle. Let's try resetting your dishwasher by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is best 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, 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.

Best regards! - Z

Hello Marcus, since you have already reset the dishwasher, confirm that the door is properly latched and try selecting a cycle. If resetting the power did 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 recommend contacting a professional to properly diagnose and repair the appliance. I hope this information proves to be helpful in some way.

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.
