Question about Frigidaire Dishwashers

1 Answer

I own a Frigidaire Gallery front-loading washing machine. The front of the dispenser drawer came off the drawer itself. A rectangular piece of metal also fell out. I reattached the front piece to the actual drawer, leaving out the piece of metal (don't know where it fits) and now the washing machine won't start. Where does the metal piece go ?

    Somewhat. I detached the front of the drawer again and, after inspecting the unit, put the metal piece next to the spring of the latch. The washing machine now works.

It can be the lever that holds the drawer in place. Since its not possible to check the unit you are suggested to contact the customer support.

Can't put6 dispenser back in


Hi Paulette, this is AP

I understand you are having difficulty reentering the dispenser drawer on your Frigidaire front load washer. On this particular model, FAFS4073NW, the dispenser drawer has a lock tab in the left rear corner of the drawer cavity. You must push this lock tab down before sliding in the drawer, reversing the process you used to remove the drawer originally. Make sure you look in the entry way of the drawer so that you are lining up the track with the dispenser drawer tracks. I hope this information proves helpful to you, thank you for the post.

Thanks,

Add white vinegar to the dispenser and run a load. If that does not solve the problem take the dispenser out and soak it in a 50:50 white vinegar and water mixture for an hour

Our magnet fell out, where does it go


If you are talking about a small, rectangular magnet, about a 1/16" think or so, it goes in the detergent dispenser drawer. Looking at the front of the drawer, right side, a little behind the front. This magnet triggers a ( or should if its not falied) a magnetic reed switch which allows the washer to operate only if the drawer is closed.

If you take the drawer out, and remove the front, you will see where it goes.

Hi
This ddo error code means Dispenser Drawer Open.Check to see if the Dispenser Drawer is open or the small tubular Magnet # 51 is missing. The magnet is underneath the dispenser door, you have to remove the dispenser from the washer, then take apart the dispenser itself, you will see snapping clips to unsnap, then you will see the magnet#8 in diagram#1 here:

My Frigidaire front load washer will not dispense the fabric softner during cycle.


Clean the dispenser drawer if water is introduced into the fabric softener cavity but does not dispense. Pull the dispenser drawer out until it stops and push down the release tab marked "PUSH" and then pull the dispenser out completely.

Lift the dispenser drawer cover and clean the tubes both in the dispenser drawer and the cover.

Turn the drawer over then release the conveyor from the tabs and lift it off. Clean the conveyor and the drawer thoroughly.

Snap the conveyor into the tabs back into position and then reinstall the dispenser cover making sure the tubes are properly seated.

Slide the dispenser drawer back into the drawer opening while pushing down the part marked "PUSH".

Let us know if the fabric softener dispenser still does not dispense while both the detergent and bleach dispensers dispense.

Help with drawer for fabric softener


Take out the drawer and clean the compartment and pipe at the end of the drawer with hot soapy water - washing up liquid works well. Clean all around it. Use a pipe cleaner, cotton buds or piece of coiled curtain wire to ensure that the U shaped pipe is clear of obstruction. Pull it back and forward to dislodge any accumulated fabric conditioner. To show this is working OK, put it in the sink and fill up the compartment with water until it is overflowing then stop. The water should drain out of the compartment on its own.

Next, where the drawer fits in the machine clean the water exit above the drawer with a washing up brush. This can appear brown or white depending on your water type. If this is OK then try running the machine. If there is still a problem, remove the drawer again and turn off the power at the mains. Use something like a paper clip to poke all the holes in the water dispenser area above the drawer. There are lots of them so some patience might be required. If you live in a hard water area it could be blocked with limescale in which case an application of a descaling mousse or spray will assist. Once complete, make sure you rinse the drawer area, drawer and put the drawer back in and run the machine on a short cold fill wash cycle. Put some fab con in the drawer to test that the machine drains it correctly. A good idea is to slightly water down fab con concentrate as it will eventually clog up the dispenser. If all is well then there will be no fab con left. If it is still there then you will need to get into the water dispensing area to see what is wrong. Occasionally the mechanism can get jammed, lose a spring or just get broken, in which case it will need replacing.
