Question about Frigidaire DGBD2432K Dishwasher
I just installed this dishwasher and after all connections were made I ran it and started to see water. I looked underneath and found what looks like a plug had come out of the drain tub but it won;t stay in. This plug has wiring going to it and is encased in plastic so it won't get wet. It also has a gasket and nothing seems broken. I thought I had it back in but 20 minutes into the cycle it popped out again. I don;t see the part liste din the manual or know what it is for or how to secure it.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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

There are a couple reasons water may be leaking out the door of a dishwasher.
1. The water is most likely coming out the bottom of the door where there is no rubber seal.
2. The rubber seal is around the door jam on top and both sides and not on the bottom. This means if the dishwasher has to much detergent in it the soap suds push only the water higher than the front edge of the wash basin and out the bottom of the door where there is no seal!
3. Fill only the soap cup that can close for the secondary wash. The open cup is a pre-wash and mostly not needed unless the food is baked on.This just wastes money to fill both of them every time.
4. And if you are using liquid detergent you only need half the amount from the powdered soap!
try less soap. Remember to much soap too can cause the water overflow.
5. And the last would be that the drain is clogged and caused a back up large or small and then the overflow!
is there water in the bottom when the wash is done?
Soap is usually the culprit, not that there can't be a leak in an old drain or water supply hose!
Go with the soap idea first!
Let me know how you are!
How old is the washer ?
Please remember to leave a rating before you go!

There are only 2 places the DW can get water from. One is the drain line and the other is the supply line. We need to eliminate one to diagnose the problem, OK?
The first picture is a drain hose gone wrong...
Inspect your drain hose. If it looks like the pic above, you gotta fix that. Even IF that's not the problem right now... it will be in the future (and MAY be contributing to the problem now). You'll need to loosen the clamp, remove the drain hose from its' fitting, pull as much slack as you can get from the DW and then make a "loop" in it before reconnecting it. Like this...
The DW drain loop should be as high as the highest part of the sink...
I know that you have done a lot of experimenting in an attempt to figure this out. Just make sure that the drain hose is installed properly to eliminate it as the cause of the flood issue.
After you've made sure about the drain hose, leave the DW alone overnight. If you see water in the tub the next morning, you definitely have a failed valve on your DW. Since it's new (less than a year?) the valve is under warranty and will be replaced at no charge.
Hope this helps. If it's out of warranty let me know and I'll do the part look up for you and provide detailed replacement instructions, OK?

To properly drain and clear out any clogs in a dishwasher:
1.Take a wet/dry vacuum, remove the paper air filter (usually just a screw) from the inside of the vacuum body
2. Empty out the vacuum body prior to using it.
3. Then **** out all of the water from the inside basin/tub.
4. Before you turn off the vac, lift the hose high into the air and make sure all of the water is sucked into the vacuum to prevent any water still in the tube from making a mess.
5. Dump that water. This will provide you an opportunity to remove excess water before you get to work.
Next, under the sink there you will see your drain, just above your drain you will see a black or transparent tube about 1" in diameter. 6. Unscrew the tube screw. 7. Get your vacuum hose and hold it near the tube. When you take off the tube, there may be, though likely not, some excess water in the tube. **** this up if needed. 8. Put the vac hose onto the tube and make an air tight seal with your hand over the hose and tube. 9. Turn on the vacuum and such out any clogs. 10. Turn on your dish washer and let it run for a minute or two to get water back into the tub. 11. Open the door, there should be about 1-2" of water in the tub. 12. Hit the cancel button and let the water pump out of your tub, be sure to hold the vacuum hose over the tube and **** out all the water with the asistance of your dishwashers pump. 13. Repeat steps 8-12 2-3 times. You should notice water will no longer remain in the tube when you fill it up, & press the cancel button because the machine will pump everything out for you. Once you have done this and the water pumps out without a problem you have fixed your clog.
14. Reattach the tube to the drain using the tube screw. 15. Dump the water from the vacuum down the drain. 17. Clean up and put your vacuum away. 16. Put the $95 into your savings account because you likely just fixed your clog in under 45 min. from start to finish.
I hope this helps!
