Check the inlet water flow to the machine. Clean the strainer attched to the machine body. Delayed water supply will delay the wash process!

Frigidaire FDB520RHB Dishwashers : We bought this dishwasher about 3 months ago. Today I ran the washer before I left to do errands and when I returned, I believe the washer had finished its cycle. But...


Try to run the dishwasher on a short cycle like rinse and see if it finishes the cycle.

It is likely the heater or hot water temperature is not reaching the desired level and this could cause the extended wash cycle. Feel water temperature inside dishwasher after some time. If cold then it is the heater not working. Perhaps try without Heat Dry Cycle. That will also extend the cycle if heater is not working well.

see cycle diagrams in the page 2 of this sheet. Gives you and idea how Heater Delay affects cycle times.

My washing machine will not drain...


Good Morning, Cindeyellis88:

3 weeks is a long time without a washer. Is the washer not draining for all cycles? Will it spin and not drain, or not spin AND not drain? Can you hear the motor running?

If the motor is running, and the machine will spin but not drain, you will need to open the machine and clear the hoses to and from the pump. There are YouTube videos showing how to open the machine safely.

If the pump is clogged, the problem may extend up to the tub. This happens when socks and small items go overboard.

Good Luck.

My maytag clothes washer Bravo quiet series 300, keeps flashing a Sd error code. Or it may be 5d


What does the Sd code mean?

This code indicates that excessive detergent suds occurred during the cycle. The washer will not be able to spin out water with the excess suds. When "Sd" is displayed, the washer automatically extends the rinse time to remove the excess suds. During this time, the washer pauses the wash action and adds water for additional rinsing. This pause allows the bubbles in the suds to break. This process is necessary and may occur several times to eliminate the suds.

Concentrated detergents labeled 2x and higher will require a small amount of detergent based on load size. Always follow the manufacturer's recommendations.

Use only HE High Efficiency detergent for BravosTM washers.

Is "Sd" displayed and the wash cycle dial is flashing?

This indicates the washer was not able to clear all the excess suds from the washer. Re-select your desired cycle using cold water. Press Start/Pause. Do not add detergent.

Is "Sd" displayed and the wash cycle dial is not flashing?

If "Sd" is displayed and the wash cycle dial is not flashing, allow the machine to continue running, even if it appears that nothing is happening. When "Sd" is displayed, the washer automatically extends the rinse time to remove the excess suds. During this time, the wash action will pause to allow the bubbles in the suds to break, and the washer will add water for better rinsing. This rinsing process is necessary and may occur several times to eliminate the suds.

Is the drain hose kinked or clogged?

Make sure that the drain hose is not kinked or clogged. Straighten the hose for adequate water flow. Remove any blockage from the drain hose, drainpipe or utility sink. Use the U-shaped drain hose form on the drain hose, and secure the drain hose.

To remove the error display, press Power/Cancel or Pause/Cancel once.

If Power/Cancel or Pause/Cancel does not work:

  1. Unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.
  2. Plug in the washer or reconnect the power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start/Pause.

NOTE: If the error remains on the display, and all of the other questions above have been checked, call for service.

Not sure if upper spray arm is working. Dishes on top shelf remain dirty. Lower arm works early in cycle but not top. Are they supposed to be working at the same time?


Something is blocking the extender from getting to top spayer arm. Push all drawers in and look to see if extender can be manually raised to arm. Slug buildup can effect a dishwasher also. clean with bleach and water. Pour bleach in the washer and run thru one cycle.

Kenmore calypso washer stuck in extended spin and won't run


If you are not comfortable disconnecting the drained washer from power and water, and tipping it up so you can unscrew the bottom cover to do this, you can order Sears part # 3954702, which is the diagnostic paperwork that lets you run the washer through its paces one step at a time to help isolate problems.

However, the washer usually should have come with this paperwork, secreted in a plastic pouch up towards the top of the washer attached to the outer case way at the top (therefore hard to get to from the top without opening the top and sticking your arm to the inner surface of the outside case to find it).

Use a flashlight to look for it, and if you remove it be careful not to tear it up, and by all means do not lose it!

Kenmore 22062 will not cycle correctly


Problem fixed. I took apart the bottom of the washer to access the pump, and found that there was underwire from bras stuck in the discharge tube blocking the water from exiting the washer and that was causing the cycle problem. I guess that the washer knew that there was too much water in the tub and kept trying to expel it.
