Question about Frigidaire GLD2445RFC Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

We have a Frigidaire Gallery Dishwasher, model GLD2445RFCO, installed in June 2007. The door has always resisted being closed far enough to latch but recently it has become more difficult such that my wife has difficulty shutting it. I shut it by leaning on it with one hand on each upper corner. The door has no resistance to closing until it begins to engage the latch but it does not feel as though there is resistance in the latch itself. I have closely inspected the gasket and find the lower left end is somewhat deformed compared to the lower right end, but the resistance to closing seems to be the same on both sides.

It would be helpful to have the full model number of the dishwasher.

Most likely the door seal is swollen and may need replacement.

Alternatively the micoswitch in side the latch assembly is not making contact with the latch tongue.
It is also possible the springs at the door base are too tight and need to be adjusted.

need the model number.

THE LATCH IS READING THAT THE DOOR IS CLOSED BUT I CAN OPEN THE DOOR WHILE THE DISHWASHER IS IN CYCLE. WITH THE SPRING INDISE THE DOOR BEING LOCKED IT WONT EVENT LET ME FULLY SHUT THE DOOR! ANY HELP.


Hello friend, thank you for your post!
From what you have described the spring from the latch is broken inside of the door and you are unable to close your Frigidaire dishwasher. You would need to disassemble the dishwasher in order to replace the latch or spring. This needs to be done by a professional technician as improper disassembly could results in personal injury. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

Why are the lights on the far right of the panel of the Frigidaire gallery dishwasher model #GLD8958A52 ?


Hi friend, thank you for your inquiry!

I understand that the panel on your Frigidaire dishwasher has lights on the far right side of the panel. I would recommend a reset on your dishwasher and you can do that by flipping the household circuit breaker in the off position for ten minutes. The lights on the right side of the panel could be providing a warning to inform the panel that something is wrong. A reset could provide an error code for further diagnosis. I hope this information has been helpful. -Matt

Frigidaire Gallery Microware door doesn't latch


I experienced the same problem. The solution was easy, for me at least. Remove the door. pry loose the plastic liner that covers the inside of door. remove the four screws that hold the glass unit in place. You will find rattling around inside a spring about an inch long and a broken plastic piece about an inch and a half tall. On my unit the plastic piece was still hanging on by a thread which gave me a clear understanding of how the door latch is supposed to work. Remove the plastic latch unit which is designed to slide on the two posts about three eights of on inch distance under the pressure of the spring. Problem is loss of spring induced pressure.
The repair: ( I used my bandsaw to do this) fashion a piece of wood with indentations that correspond to the plastic ribs enabling the wood to sit perfectly into the space. Drill a hole at the point where the inch and a half "anchor post" broke off and insert a dowel of same length. I carved a shallow indentation for the spring, pressed the spring on with needle nose pliers, replaced the sliding latch mechanism, attached other end of spring to the latch. I drilled into the exterior plastic door frame and installed a flat head screw to hold the wood repair piece solidly in place. Re-install pieces removed earlier and you have a happy, functioning Frigidaire gallery micro at your service. Took an hour.

The door on my machine won't shut?


Hello

You will need to adjust the dishwasher door latch to fix the door if it will not close. The door latch can come out of alignment from use. Adjusting the latch assembly is a straight forward process on most models of dishwashers. First, remove the securing fasteners for the inner door panel. It is a good idea not to remove the inner door panel completely, just enough that you can access the door latch assembly.

Turn the dishwasher circuit breaker off inside your home electrical panel. Open and close the door and watch where the strike plate makes contact with the door. The strike plate is usually on the front top center of the dishwasher. If the strike plate is out of alignment, it will hit the inside of the door.

Pull the dishwasher out of the counter enough that you can access the strike plate securing Torx screw. You may need to open your dishwasher door and remove the two screws that secure the dishwasher mounting bracket to the bottom of the counter with a Phillips-head screwdriver to pull the dishwasher away from the counter.

Loosen the Torx screw that secures the strike plate to the washer tub with a Torx driver. Adjust the strike plate so the plate will engage the door latch. Retighten the Torx screw and push the dishwasher back under the counter. Secure the brackets to the counter if your dishwasher uses retaining brackets.

Adjust Door Latch

Open the dishwasher door and remove the Torx screws securing the inner door panel to the outer door panel with a Torx driver. The retaining screws are usually around the side edge and top edge of the dishwasher door.

Lift the inner door panel enough that you can loosen the two securing bolts on the door latch with a wrench. You only need to loosen the bolts, not remove them.

Carefully raise the dishwasher door to align the door latch with the strike plate. Hold the door latch with your finger tips when you align the latch. Lower the door and tighten the door latch securing bolts.

Install the inner door panel retaining screws and tighten all screws with the Torx driver. Close the dishwasher door and turn on the circuit breaker.

The door won't close completely


Hi, Check for the following whenever you have problems in door
Latch: The latch on many dishwashers is adjustable. If your door is easy to close but difficult to latch, adjust the latch to let the door close more easily. If you can't see any way to adjust the latch, yours may be fixed in a certain position. Check for other reasons for the latching problem. If the latch has worn out in a way that makes it impossible for you to close the door properly, you probably need to replace the latch.
Springs Your dishwasher has two springs that counterbalance the weight of the door. If either or both of these are broken, the door feels quite heavy and you need to replace both springs.
Hinges The hinges are important to the door closing properly. If they're bent or deformed, you probably need to replace them. Once bent, only rarely can they be straightened well enough.
Door seal If your dishwasher is new--or if you have just replaced a door seal--the door may be difficult to latch for a week or two. If the tightness persists, though, try adjusting the latch, if it's adjustable. If it's not adjustable, there's probably nothing you can do immediately. But try running the dishwasher on the highest heat cycle to help the seal conform to the door. Otherwise, the seal should compress over time.

Frigidaire dishwasher model GLD2445RFCO is making noise


I have the same problem with my dishwasher. If you remove the kick plate while it is running, There is an electric motor underneath. If you push up and pull forward on the electric motor, the noise will stop. I used a block to prop it up and the noise stopped. You may want to try it.

The door on my dishwasher will not close


There are a few problems that can occur with the diswasher door assembly. These usually involve the latching mechanism, the door seal, the counterbalance spring assembly or the hinges. 1) The door latch plate can occasionally become out of alignment. Some door latch plates are adjustable, some aren't. If yours is adjustable, try loosening the retaining screws and repositioning the plate. It's trial-and-error, so have a lot of patience. If this doesn't work, then the latch needs replacing.
2) A new dishwasher or a newly installed door seal can be difficult to close for a while until the seal softens and compresses over time. You can try adjusting the latch, if possible.
3) If the door feels unusually heavy, there could be a problem with the counterbalance spring assembly. These counterbalance assemblies allow the door to open and close easier and are held by two springs. On some dishwasher models, holes are positioned in line so you can re-tension the springs by moving the spring hooks to other tensioning holes. If any of these springs break, they will need to be replaced as a pair.
4) The door hinges might be bent. They can seldom be adequately fixed and should be replaced.
hope this helps

Frigidaire Dishw. Error code CL


this just happened to ours and it turned out to be the gasket that seals the door.

when you see the CL error and the door is indeed shut, pull gently back on the door. if you hear a click and the unit starts running again, it may be the gasket.

ours lost it's ability to keep the seal, allowing enough 'play' in the locking mechanism for it to think the door was not closed.
