I have a stalled dishwasher that stopped after the beginning of the normal wash cycle.
There is still water in the basin of the dishwasher. I've tried adding more but had no luck with that. I've also turned on the dish cycle knob around through every cycle. Still no luck. I've stuck my hand in the bottom to check for food particles but there is nothing.

two things to look at : water level sensor ? seems I once had a machine that the water inlet valve never totally shut off and it overfilled basin this shut machine off on a spill sensor fault but took several minutes to do this , Also the door closed switch , seems they do get finicky as time goes on and even thought door stays closed the movement of machine opens the door switch up (not the door) this also takes several minutes to occur
dishwashers come with the promise of being the "quietest dishwasher in
its class," according to Frigidaire. However, a quiet dishwasher doesn't
necessarily mean that the dishwasher is silent, as some noises are
normal. It can take some troubleshooting at times to determine if a
noise coming from the dishwasher is typical or if it indicates a larger
Listen for the sound of water filling and draining throughout the washcycle. These sounds are normal and do not indicate an issue.
Pay attention to the drain
motor, which operates at the beginning of each cycle. This noise should
be fairly quiet and should not sound like a loud, grinding or banging
Note that the sound will change
when the wash cycle moves between the lower and middle spray arms. This
sound should be temporary and fairly quiet.
Look for hard items in the dishwasher
grinder or filter if a loud crunching, buzzing or grinding sound is
heard. The dishwasher can typically grind up these items within one or
two cycles, but the item may be lifted out and discarded to eliminate
Remove the bottom rack and spray
arms from the bottom of the dishwasher if there is a loud noise coming
from the dishwasher that does not resolve itself. Look inside for the
impeller, which is round and spins. Remove any debris that may be
clogging up the impeller or pump.
by the descrition you are giving you will need to replace the main control board.Part number 154568401.you may also need to check the float switch.The part will run about 110.00 dollars from a local parts store
What you're describing as changing to another cycle may be the dishwasher trying to display diagnostic information. For example, if you ran a Normal cycle and it appears to switch to Light Wash, check to see if the "Clean" indicator is also lit. This would indicate a motor fault, which would explain why it appears to "freeze".
Dishwashers typically leave water in the drain system exitting the pan but not a lot of water. If yours does then make sure you clean the drain screen ( normally located in or around the drain tube exitting the pan of the dishwasher..) If after cleaning that and after a normal wash cycle you continue to have significant volumes of water in the pan, the pump, lines leading to and from that pump may be restricting flow or damaged.. Those are a few of the normal culprets for why there is a lot of water in the pan of dishwashers after a cycle.. Hope that helps you identify the problem and resolve it,..,
Larry, The float is generally for overflow conditions and will interrupt power to the fill valve solenoid. If you are not filling completely in the time allowed by the timer, it is most likely a flow restriction in the water supply. Barring other obvious restrictions, the fill valve has filter screens on the inlet side of the fill valve, which is generally the cause of your symptoms. Be careful if you attempt to clean the screens, as the fill valves are very sensitive to debris, and can become stuck open if sediment gets past the screen. I usually replace the fill valve to avoid future problems. Hope this helps.
Wow, I am just wondering is the water inside the dishwasher warm or hot? Or is it cold? IF it is cold it could be that the unit is trying to heat the water usually to 120 degrees.If it is hooked up to a cold water valve from your house this could be the problem. Or it is the heating element,.
Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next, depends, as follows:
On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time.
On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too.
Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.
