SOURCE: Dishwasher doesn't seem to be cleaning.

Sounds like the filter screen at the bottom under the lower spray arm is plugged. Tear down the entire mechanism under the spray arm until you get to the screen (make note of position and placement of each part as removed). Clean the screen in a mixture of white vinegar, detergent and hot water--scrubbing if necessary. Check the open ports in the bottom of the tub for any plugging. Reassemble in reverse order. removed.

SOURCE: Frigidaire dishwasher Fdb4315lfc2 door

There are two springs that support the door and control the rate it falls and stops at. They are located at the base of the door. One on the left side and one on the right.

Slide the machine out. Usually held with screws directly into the underside of the counter. You may have to lower the unit by turning the feet. Most of the time you can just slide it out.

Look on the sides and you will see the springs. One or both will have come off. They should be hooked to a slot in the door hinge and the other end to a hole in the frame of the unit.

Over time they can become over stretched. If you put them back and the door drops too quickly and stops with a jar then replace the springs. Spring are springs so you can get them at a hardware store or parts supplier.

Dishwasher door will not close dishwasher come on with door open.


Good Morning Garthraie, thanks for your post!
I see that the door on your Frigidaire dishwasher appears to be locked and will not close. Could you please advise if the control panel has any lights lit up on it? Also, may I have the model number of your dishwasher? You can locate the serial tag (which lists your model number) on the inside left hand wall of your dishwasher. With this additional information I would be able to assist you further. -Matt

Are lights supposed to be on when the dishwasher is running and the door is closed?


The buttons and the display panel are not lit when the machine is running. This is to save energy according to frigidaire. I wish I had know this before purchasing it about a year and a half ago. The cycle count down timer was a big reason I purchased this one, but what good is it if it only works when the door is open?

Hi, we have a Frigidaire FBD1050REM diswasher that the soap door intermittantly won't open, leaving soap all over. Any ideals? Thanks, Christine


I have the same dishwasher and the same problem. What works for me 95% of the time is to push the soap door latch once before I load the soap and close the door. There seams to be two positions on this latch and one opens better. Also, make sure your top rack is pushed all the way to the back before closing the main door.
Personallly, I am looking for a replacement dishwasher!

When I set it to normal wash it takes more than a hour to finish I also press all the other settings dry heat, sanatizer. dont know if I'm doing something wrong


Every setting extends the wash time. You only need sanatizer if your doing a lot of baby bottles. The normal cycle with the strong dishwasher detergent will kill all bacteria anyway. The dry heat extends the time even longer and uses more hydro. Just open the door when the cycle is finished and they will dry on there own.
I hope this is of some help.

Frigidaire fdb510lcs0 soap dispenser not opening


Hi


Many dishwashers (but not all) use a BI-metal strip that heats up once poweris applied to it. The BI-metal strip bends and allows the soap door spring toopen up the dispenser. This bi-metal strip is not given full 120 volts power,the timer "shunts" the power through either the heating element (most common ) or the motor and this gives the bi-metal strip lower than fullpower to work and open. Most often the bi-metal strip has lost its ability tobend properly and needs to be replaced. Older GE dishwashers used a mechanicalarm driven by the timer to open the dispenser = no electrical bi-metals.

Newer Frigidaire dishwashers and many newer Whirlpool dishwashers use a wax motor to open the soap dispenser. The plunger insidethe wax motor slowly moves and pushes the plunger and door open. And, if thiswax motor doesn’t receive 120 volts, then it’ll not work.

This will help you --

Frigidaire dishwasher door squeaks when opened and closed


I had the same problem and this worked like a charm:
http://www.blog.applianceoutletservice.com/2008/12/frigidaire-dishwasher-door-squeaks.html

All you'll have to do is take off the kick plate, actually remove the cords, and lubricate with soap (lower tech than spray silicon, but it's worked so far...)
