My dishwasher is approximately 13 years old - we have used it lightly - maybe 2 or 3 times a week because there are only 2 of us living in the house and I only run the dishwasher when it is fully loaded.
About a year ago, the control buttons started doing funny things - one or two buttons selecting times wouldn't show right....but when I ran it anyway, the dishwasher seemed to run for the time it was supposed to do, so I haven't worried too much about it.
Lately, it has been giving me a F2 message before the program has finished and when I go to empty it (usually the next morning), the F2 message is blinking and my dishes are not cleaned.

From my understanding your Frigidaire dishwasher is getting stuck in the washing cycle. Sounds like you may have a possible issue with a sensor or control panel. I would suggest performing a reset on your dishwasher and you can do that by disconnecting power from your dishwasher for approximately ten minutes. If you continue to experience problems with you dishwasher not cycling I would recommend reaching out to a technician for a diagnosis to be completed. The technician would be able to pinpoint the cause of the failure and complete repairs. Hope this is helpful. -Matt
1. check the water shut off valve.
2. Make sure you are closing the door properly it should close completely to get start
3. If you are sure that above to things are fine but still you have problem then check the dishwasher water inlet valve.
4. If you have flexible water pipe connected with your dishwasher then check it if its the one with flood safety at one end of pipe. If you have that kind of flex pipe then change it with regular flex pipe the one without safety.
potentially sound odd, but run the 90 degree cycle with 3 dishwasher tablets in
the drum. The smell is bacterial and probably the result of a build up of
residue from biological soap powder (Which is simply bacteria that eat your
stains). Dishwasher tablets are anti-bacterial and will kill the bugs making
1) Ensure the dishwasher is turned off. 2) (may not apply) Turn the plastic blue lever located under the sink to the vertical position (this opens the valve, so water can go into the dishwasher) 3) Pour powder indo the dishwasher 4) Turn the dishwasher controller to the top position (the 12 o?clock position) ? this is the eco-setting. 5) Press the on/power button on the dishwasher, so that it now turned on (a light will display) 6) Move the dishwasher controller to the ?R? position (it?s on the very left), and leave it there a second or two. 7) Move the dishwasher controller back to the eco-setting (the 12 o?clock position).
Dishwashers are usually protected from overfilling by a float switch. This switch is located in the bottom of the unit. Here's how to check and replace it:Step 1: Open the door and remove the bottom dish rack. Check to see if the float valve is stuck. If it is, clean away food debris around the float. With a screwdriver handle, lightly tap the top of the float to free it.Step 2: If tapping doesn't work, remove the lower access panel and locate the bottom portion of the float and float switch. Test the float switch with a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Unscrew one electrical lead wire to the switch terminal, and clip one probe of the VOM to each terminal. If the meter reads zero, the switch is not faulty. The trouble is probably in the timer. If the meter reads higher than zero, the switch is faulty.Step 3: Replace the switch with a new one made to fit the dishwasher. The switch is held to a mounting bracket with screws; remove the screws to get the old switch out.Step 4: Connect the new switch the same way the old one was connected
