Question about Frigidaire 24 in. FDB1050REC Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Clicking sound but won't turn on

My Frigidaire Gallery dishwasher quit working and there was this clicking sound coming from it that would not go away until I unplugged it. Nothing appears to be stopped up and none of the control buttons works now. There is just this clicking sound. I am trying to figure out if it is just a broken part that can be replaced or if I need a new dishwasher. I am not a fix-it genius but do know enough to unplug it before working on it, if you can suggest what part I might need. Thanks!

    I was in a live chat when my expert sent me to look at a photo and my Mac wouldn't let me go back. I didn't record my expert's name, but I think it was bc_ax. How do I get back to that live chat I paid for in the premium assistance? Thanks. I looked on my profile for a Live Chat Sessions button but there isn't one.

    Okay, I have the right model number now for my Frigidaire Gallery "professional" dishwasher. It is GPDB998JC0. The display panel and buttons are not working. The dishwasher has an annoying loud clicking sound when plugged in. It stops when I unplug it. No water standing in the bottom. I just can't get it to work.

    If it is something simple to replace, like a part that doesn't need soldering or anything fancy, I should be able to fix it. Otherwise, I will buy a new dishwasher.

    I hope I can get hooked up again with IFIXALL, as I paid for a chat but got kicked offline (not by you, but by a computer glitch, I think).

The clicking sound is most likely the valve opening and closing. i would check the control board and the keypad. it's most likely the keypad, specifically the connector needs to be plugged into the board.

E r u o code comes up and a clicking sound occurs

Good Afternoon Jean, thanks for your inquiry!
I understand that your Frigidaire dishwasher is displaying an error code of "E R U O". From the code you provided it sounds like the code is "UO" which means the vent is open. This could be a possible issue with your vent assembly, wiring harness, or control panel. I would suggest checking the vent assembly to assure it is opening and closing. If the vent is working properly I would advise you to perform a reset on your dishwasher and you can do that by flipping the household circuit breaker off for at least ten minutes. If this does not resolve your issue I would recommend having a professional technician out to perform proper repairs. This will prevent you from purchasing unnecessary parts. -Matt

Frigidaire gallery fghd2455lf leaks from bottom of door

Thank you for your post, Jacques Lanthier!

From what you have described it sounds like you could have a loose or bad gasket on your Frigidaire dishwasher. Typically, to clean any seals you would remove them and wipe them off with a rag and warm water. If you continue to experience an issue with water leaking I would recommend replacing the gaskets. I hope this information has been helpful. -Matt

If you select the Normal Cycle, twice during the cycleyou will hear the wash motor going on and off at amuch different cadence. The pump will pulse severaltimes, repeatedly turning on for less than a secondand off for 10 seconds. This allows it to drive soils off the filter and into the drain while using very littlewater. If, after selecting the Normal Cycle, you select either the Sanitize or Hi-Temp Wash options your dishwasher will understand that a stronger wash is needed and it will not use this pulsing routine

Frigidaire gallery dishwasher CL code

CL is a generic clear code. Reset the unit at the household circuit breaker for about 10-15 minutes, and then retry. If the same code comes up then you have a communication error with your main control board, and will require a repair.

Frigidaire Gallery dishwasher smoke coming out of door. smells like wires burning.

You need to replace the blower assembly, common prob after a few years of use.

Part number: 154226802 "Blower-Crossflow", suggested list at this time is around 30.00 us dollars.

Open door, remove inside screws form panel and carefully remove panel up from door, blower is next to timer on control panel.

Dishwasher made clicking sound, then CL light, now nuthin'

I had a similar problem. After a $90 service call I was told it was the main electronic panel. The panel costs $180 and installation is $70. No Frigidaire is worth that. You, like I, should buy a new non-Frigidaire.

Frigidaire Gallery Professional Series

i would check the warranty on the control board, if that is what the tech recommended. most mfg. cover electronics longer than the appliance itself.

it could also just be the keypad.
