Question about Frigidaire PLDB998A Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

I have a Frigidaire Dishwasher (PLDB998AC1). The wash selector panel will light up correctly, but when you press start it doesn't turn on and within about 5 seconds the lights on the selector panel go out. In addition there is some water in the bottom that doesn't appear to be draining. Do you have any suggestions?

SOURCE: dishwasher not washing

By chance have you cleaned the spray arm out lately? There could be something blogging the water from getting into the arm. In most dishwashers, the arm only spins because water pressure makes it spin.

My Frigidaire front loader washer model LTF2140E doesnt want to drain the water when set to wash (heavy-normal-quick selectors). It washes put thats it. I have to switch the selector to drain/spin then rinse/spin cycle to finish the load. I checked the drain hose for any clogs....everything is clear. Any suggestions? Also,iIs2.gif their any reset buttons for this type of washer?

SOURCE: Washing light flashes on Frigidaire FDB1050REM dishwasher

1) Turn off the breaker to the machine.

2) Wait 30 seconds and then turn it back on.

3) All the lights will be flashing. At this point turn the dial to "rinse only" and then press "Heat dry" and "Start/Cancel" at the same time.

4) The Machine will go into maintenance mode going through all the cycles quickly.

5) After this is finished the problem should be solved.

SOURCE: Frigidaire Dishwasher FDB1050REC1 - Washing Indicator Light Blinking

Here is what happened, you pulled the door open without pressing cancel and allowing it to pump the water out, hence the "flooding in the bottom". This is just one reason why it maybe blinking, there is a water sensor in the bottom. If your dishwasher is hooked up properly to any decent garbage disposal, run the disposal for about 30 seconds to a minute. This should pump the water out, more like activate a light siphoning affect. It should work as normal. If you are not having luck with that, detach the DW drain get it low and let it siphon.

Frigidaire dishwasher fills but then the motor is not running for the wash cycle


Hey Gary, thank you for your inquiry!
From the information you have provided your Frigidaire dishwasher fills with water and then the motor will not run to complete the cycle. This could be an issue within the control panel or motor of the dishwasher. Which lights are flashing on the control panel of the dishwasher? Can you provide me with your model number as well? Once I have that additional information I would be able to assist you. -Matt

Cycle did not complete. HEAT DRY light is on and can't be turned off. Start/Cancel button does nothing


Good Morning Chloe, thank you for your inquiry!
Based off the information you have provided me your Frigidaire dishwasher did not finish the cycle and the heat dry light will not turn off. This sounds like there could be a miscommunication within the control panel of the dishwasher. I would suggest performing a reset to help clear out this issue and you can do that by disconnecting power from the dishwasher for at least ten minutes. If the reset does not help it could be a possible problem within the panel or a wiring harness. Best of luck! -Matt

Why is my dishwasher just only washing and draining,


Thank you for your inquiry, friend!

I see that you are experiencing issues with your Frigidaire dishwasher only washing and draining. This could be a possible issue with your sensor or control panel. You should attempt a reset to see if that could help clear any miscommunications within your dishwasher. In order to reset your dishwasher you need to disconnect power from it for roughly ten minutes. Hopefully this helps to correct your issue. -Matt

Is there a reset for fdb1100rhs dishwasher


I can tell you the reset sequence for the whirlpool dishwasher. I believe frigidaire are made by the same company (Electrolux).

Press Heated Dry, Normal, Heated Dry Normal in sequence on the front panel within 5-6 secs. All lights on panel should light up. Press the cancel button to exit.

Hope this helps.

I can't get the control panel to reset. The wash cycle light comes on but it just beeps and the dishwasher won't start. I press the start button and it stops beeping for a minute but it still...


II might need the actual model number. However, you can go to page 9 on this manual and check if the flashing options can fix the problem. I am assuming you have already tried to turn the power off and back on.

The ohter thing to try is the reset sequence. Within 6-7 secs press High Temp/ Heat Dry/ High Temp/ Heat Dry/ High Temp/ Heat Dry. All lights should light up, press Start button to exit.

Hi
Open the door. Within 3 seconds press the following sequence --Try pressing normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry three times within 6 seconds and then press cancel to reset the dishwasher. If that doesn't help then try pressing Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry or Saini Rinse, Air Dry, Saini Rinse, Air Dry, Saini Rinse, Air Dry 3 times in 6 seconds and then the Cancel Button. Close the door and press Cancel.
Blinking lights would stop and should be able to use your dishwasher normally. If the light is still blinking try and reset the power to the dishwasher and try again. If still the light is blinking then check for the connections on the keypad, it may be due to moisture or shorted connections on keypad. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Frigidaire PLD4460REC Dishwasher will not start


This is very likely due to a bad main electronic control board but the only way to know for sure is to do some electrical testing with a volt/ohm meter and the wiring diagram located within the appliance. If possible use the meter and the wiring diagram to check input/output voltages looking for discrepancies between the diagram and the actual meter readings.
