My fridgidaire ultra quiet 3 dishwasher leaks...

Dear Sir / Ma'am,

My fridgidaire ultra quiet 3 dishwasher leaks and I don't know how to fix it. I have taken it apart to the point where the next step would be to disconnect the entire unit from the electricity and plumbing and bring it out entirley.

My neighbor complaine about the water dripping into her kitchen and I looked under my dishwasher as it was running and it had leaked about a cup to a cup and a half of water for a "light cycle".

Any hints?

    YEP, MINE IS LEAKING TOO. In my case the leak is comming from the water inlet solenoid valve. Slow leak that just drips. Guess I'll need to call a technician to replace it. Very frustrating. Looks like it was very cheaply designed as the valve is opened and closed by a small magnet. It is housed is a cheap plastic sleave that doesnt seem to have a adequate seal. Not sure how it lasted this long (4 years 8 months).

A common place to leak on these machines is through the heater leads. run the machine w/lower panel off and see where its coming from , if its dripping down the heater leads, chances are the 2 nuts that secure them are broken and need replacing

    Ronald: Thank you so much. Love it when my single, female self can make these simple repairs. One of the nuts needed to be tightened. Four years after your original helped me. Bless you. :)

My problem is. The start button is blinking and doesn't start to wash, is just blinking. can you help?

Have you checked to see if you've mistakenly locked it? On mine, if I hold pressure on the start button for 3 - 5 seconds, it locks the control panel. It unlocks the same way.

Let us know it this solves your problem.

Why are there no lights on my Kenmore Ultra Wash Quiet Guard 3 dishwasher?

So I would guess you can't get it to work at all? It could be the circuit which is inside the door....I would never suggest anyone fix these things themselves. It's always fairly expensive but worth it for peace of mind knowing a job professional done.

I see the pressure tower for a Kenmore Ultra Wash Quiet Guard dishwasher laying in the bottom of the dishwasher. I've just rented the house and haven't used the dishwasher yet. Does this pie

No, the designers put it in there for a reason; it won't work as well without it, as it would with it in. Probably the mounting tabs are broken or sprung. A new tower isn't very expensive. You can probably get one from,,, or

We have a Fridgidaire Ultra Quiet dishwasher- approx 10 years old. The dishes always come out wet. I turned the dial to the dry cycle and at least at the beginning, the heating element turns pretty hot to...

The thermal fuse is connected in series to the heating element. If it were to open, there would be no heat at all. Look at the length of time the element is on. Also, if there is a serious buildup of minerals from the water, then the operation of the element is greatly impaired. Easiest solution is to replace the element.

I have a Fridgidaire Ultra Quiet I dishwasher. The dishwasher has water running inside but it does not spray thru the spray bars.

Remove the 2 screws that hold the bottom kickplate on to ensure that the wash motor has not come unplugged. It happens more than you'd think. If it is plugged in, if you have a multimeter, just check if you have 110v to the wash motor...if you do, then the motor has failed and should be replaced
