Question about Dishwashers

Open Question

Frigidaire dishwasher PLD2850RDC1. Key pad is not working, machine now won't even turn on. I close the machine and the display shows "65" and the light under the "lower rack" button is on. Is this a keypad problem or a circuit board? I just want to know which part to order so I can fix it myself.

SOURCE: The heated dry button will no longer work on my GE Mono. dishwash

most often they are one unit or "circuit board" and you will need to replace every thing, if you can turn off power and take off front door panel you should be able to "see" switch componet or look in your owners manual ...hee hee

You need to use the service manual, work through, all the procedures, to isolate your problem,and repair. The DIY sites will also help

Also try to unplug and leave unplugged for 5 - 10 mins, and reconnect, this sometimes "Resets" it. Also it may NOT apply, but the Fix below regardless, works, many times, and is well worth a try.
Ok so your dishwasher won't do anything... it justs sits there and "Hums" you can't make it respond to any controls, and the ONLY way to Stop it. is to unplug the unit, replugging back in it simply "Hums" again and will do nothing.
Now this happens because, the STOP Button, is pressed and the "Door Opened", during the Wash Cycle. This should NOT be done. You shouldNEVER TURN IT OFF MID-CYCLE. you should instead, Simply, pull on the handle, to Open the door, the system will take care of everything, after, you close it,and pick up where it left off. The turning OFF, makes the machine "Think" that a New Cycle, is going to be done, before the old one is finished, and resets itself to do it all again. But it still has water, that's not meant to be there so it must dump it out.
Now, the FIX. Take the Dishwasher, out, and tip over on it's side, tip to about a 45' angle. Water will come out from underneath, this is from a small "Overflow" reservoir. this reservoir has an "Anti-Flood" switch. The removing of this water will "Reset" this Switch, and allow the dishwasher to work again.
So what happens, is this, when the STOP button is pressed Mid-Cycle, the machine must "Dump" whatever water is still in the machine, into the "Overflow Reservoir". This water then causes the Anti-flood switch to jam, and this stops the machine, until it is reset,by the above method.

Hi.

To reset a Frigidaire dishwasher you have to press a sequence of buttons three times. This is familiarly called button dance

High Temp Wash, Heated Dry, High Temp Wash, Heated Dry, High Temp Wash.


If you don't have a heated dry then do the same button dance using "drain off" or "air dry" instead of heated dry.

If that does not work, contact the manufacturer on number listed on use and care manual, as the appliance may have a defective timer control.

Regards.

24" builtin Frigidaire Dishwasher, light on top of door says, Hold to lock. I can not operate the machine while this lite is on.?


Hello Ray E. Weaver - Sounds like the Child Lock option may have been selected. This is a safety feature that allows you to lock and unlock the controls to keep children from interfering with the wash cycle etc. Press and hold the AIR DRY pad button for 3 seconds while the door is latched. This should unlock the control pad for you, light goes out and the unit will display the last cycle ran. However, if it does not, try resetting the unit by unplugging it for flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and turn the unit back on. However, if it proves to be ineffective I recommend contacting a professional to assist further. The dishwasher may possibly have faulty door lock switch.

Start button won't work, but delay does


have you accidently turned on a safety feature stopping the machine from starting? or is the door latches closed fully, if opened slightly could be preventing the machine from starting. or maybe its just a faulty start button.

My dishwasher just displays 00 in and wont start.


Hi.
The double 00 error code indicates a stuck or shorted key pad or ribbon connector. I recommend to disconnect the ribbon connector and reconnect it and check operation. There is no reset sequence. You should also check the door switch operation to confirm voltage to the control board on the Tan wire. Recheck all the connections on the control board.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Dishwasher control panel won't work, can't select a programme


I own the same unit (PLD2850RDC1), with the very same problem. The part alone costs $118.95 on-line. It's called the "Touchpad Control Panel Insert" item #1036982 @ repairclinic.com. It is a plug in part and doesn't look complicated to replace. The problem remains that this part seems to fail repeatedly (see comments on- line). Our "Professional Series" Stainless Steel Fridgidaire Dishwasher is 3-years, 2-months old and we have decided to junk it - even when it works, it doesn't do a good job.
