Question about Frigidaire 24 in. FDB510LC Free-standing Dishwasher

Open Question

Our dishwasher is brand new and came with the home we just purchased. Maybe there is a problem with the installation because dirty water is collecting in the bottom and seems to be coming from the garbage disposal. What can I check?

SOURCE: Garbage Disposal backing up in dishwasher

Most dishwasher have a check valve at the pump to prevent water from backing into the dishwasher. If the pump is electric there is a rubber flat that may be gone or not working properly. If that is the case you need to replace the pump. If the pump is part of the motor assembly then the pump and motor will need to be replaced. One other thing to make sure of is that you have the drain hose looped to the top od the dishwasher and then to the disposal conection. Its called a drain loop and all dishwashers should have it. Good Luck

SOURCE: How to knock out garbage disposal plug

Turn off the power source to the garbage disposal. Take the drain hose from the dishwasher off the connector going to the disposal (if connected). Insert a flat blade screwdriver in the drain hose fitting and tap a few times with a hammer. The plastic plug will pop off inside the garbage disposal. Reach inside from the top of the disposal to retrieve the plastic plug. Sometimes you have to use a little force to tap the plug out. Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: How do you knock out the plug in garbage disposal

From the outside of the disposal, insert a large flat blade screwdriver and give it a hard tap with a hammer. The plastic plug will pop free. Reach inside the disposal and retrieve the plug. If you have questions, please let me know.

Water is not going into dishwasher although it is making all the right noises


Is it a brand new install or already priorly used by you? Always want to make sure the water lines are "on" if its a new install.
If its used, maybe the control board is not sending the right "demands". A malfunctioning dishwasher is a headache sometimes_ the error/diagnostic list is endless.

If you have hard water, glasses can look spotted and cloudy even after cleaning. Sometimes changing the dishwasher detergent can help. The easiest solution to clearing up glasses that start to look cloudy is to add some vinegar to the bottom of the dishwasher before you start a cycle. Simply add 1/4 of white vinegar and it will clear up your glasses very well.
You should see marked improvement after the first time you do this. If they are not crystal clear then simply repeat the process until all of the cloudiness is gone. In fact I recommend to using a little vinegar in each cycle to maintain the clarity of the glass.

Note: you can pre-test this by rubbing some vinegar on an individual glass with a cloth. If you cannot remove the cloudiness by soaking it and rubbing vinegar on it then it is possible that the glass is etched due to harsh or cheap dishwasher detergent and vinegar will not solve the problem.

WHERE CAN I PURCHASE THE CAROCELLE COUNTERTOP DISH WASHER THAT OPERATES ON WATER PRESSURE


For your answer on where to purchase a Carocelle Brand dishwasher, Here it is. You might only find these in certain "junk shops" like a Saver's or Goodwill. You might find one on the Craigslist site. You will not be able to find any more new ones, since Carocelle Industries folded. MAYBE, and a big maybe ebay. Note before you buy... If you have a "water saver" faucet, this item won't perform well. Same goes for low water pressure... including low pressure on a top floor of an apartment building.

My stainless steel dishwasher smells


You need to check to see if the drain line runs from the dishwasher pump to either a "T" on your kitchen sink drain or if it connects directly to the garbage disposal. Either connection is okay. However, water can run downhill from either connection to your dishwasher. To prevent dirty water from your sink or garbage disposal from running downhill to the dishwasher, you may have to install a dishwasher air gap. This can be purchased at a appliance parts store or a home improvement store like a Home Depot or Lowes. It is a "Y" shaped device that should be installed above the dishwasher drain line connection under the sink. As water will not run up hill, you need to make sure that the Air Gap is installed higher than the drain line's connection under the sink. "The Air Gap device should be mounted as high as you can under the sink."

Dishwasher hot water connection


Tell Home Depot they agreed to include installation with purchase, and if they refuse to honor their agreement, you will sue them in small claims court. To start a small claims action, call your local ton or city court and ask for directions on filing a claim

GE Dishwasher - poor cleaning


I believe there is a screen/filter on the water line before or at the water fill valve. If that gets plugged it can restrict the flow. The fill valve can also fail/get plugged and restrict the flow.
Also, dishwashers usually have a level sensor to tell when there is enough water to do the wash. It may be a float inside the tub that operates a mechanical switch or it may have a hose to a pressure sensor. Either type can get greasy/dirty/plugged and as a result cause improper water levels.
Check both the water supply filter/fill valve and the level sensor. One or both of those may be involved.

I understand.
The whole environmentally-friendly initiative represents a new type of technology, and sadly, new technology is not alway fully proven before being rushed to market.
I don't blame you for being upset, but before you rip the thing out by the wires, may I suggest you ask a maytag technician to visit the unit, just to make sure everything is working as it should? Sometimes components get jostled in shipment, or maybe a motor is running backwards, or maybe your home has low water pressure, or, or, or.
If your still not satisfied after it has been checked, then maybe it's time to find something better suited for your needs.
Hope this helps,
Kermit

Drain


Don't buy this brand anymore, and be sure all your friends know not to also. I have a GE, GSD4000J, it is less than 2 years old, I have used it maybe at most 6 times. Now it will not drain, washes with the same water, does a terrible job of washing. I own a remodeling service, I will never buy GE products for any of my jobs from this day forward. Have not been able to get any help from GE, they don't seem to stand behind their products at all, or care about their customers once you have bought their products.
