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

1 Answer

Arms are not spinning

My dishwasher is about 3 yrs old and it's worked fine up until tonight. There doesn't seem to be enough water getting to the unit to even spin the arms. There's no water at all coming out of the top and small amount coming from the bottom.

    The water doesn't seem to go anywhere once the tub is filled. The arms do not move. When I open the door, the arms are still in the same position. Where would I find the filter? The arms move freely if I spin them, but they don't seem to during the wash cycle. The soap is still in the washer, never having desolved are been circulated.

If the spray arms arent clogged up then you have a clogged filter.

    Note: If you can see the water level is just about 1-2 under the heat element then you are ok to assume you have a clogged sprayer arm and the very least likely is a clogged screen.Look closely at the lower spray arm and if you can see that the small jet holes are clear and not obstructed then you can proceed in cleaning the filter that is located directly under the lower spray arm shielding.To clean filter you first remove the bottom sprayer ,it will have a nut that unscrews.2nd.remove the shell and any piece that you see until you reach the filter (its easy to spot it) .

Frigidaire Model FDB780RCB0 I am getting water in the machine but it seems the arms are not turning what can I do to get that fixed?


The pump in the dishwasher is supposed to provide enough water pressure to turn the spray arms and make them rotate. The pump is faulty and not giving enough pressure or the arms are stuck.
Try spinning the arms, if they rotate smoothly, you will need to replace the pump.

My dishwasher was working fine until yesterday, now it doesn't seem to use all the soap, I tried 2 times and there was still soap left over.


Hello there:
It doesn't get the dishes clean dot_lineone.gif 1. No water
Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the watershut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water tothe dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fillcycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at thebottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), inwhich case replace the water valve. There are also screens and filters that need to be cleaned to ensure proper operation so please check these as well

2. Not enough water
If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. Thiscould be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (locatedunder the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at thebottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).

3. Clogged spay arms
There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Makesure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm. thee are also screens and filters under these arms that may need toi be cleaned

4. Water temperature is too low
To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.if not increase the hot water heater temp

5. . Smoky film on dishes and glasses
This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside thedishwasher. Try cleaning you dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner.There are a few out there, we recommend Dishwasher Magic®.

Moyer Diebel Dishwasher arms are not spinning and doing lousy


Hello there
First to check is the water level is it just cover the round filter and no more, or is it much lower from the filter. It seem you have not enough water in the tank to do the washing that is why you have a lousy washing job, not enough water to spray upwards don;t talk about the top spray arm , the water doesn't reach there at all.
You can check it out by manually fill the machine with water up to the filter and start the machine up when the machine is running open the door and you can see the water spray up to the top be careful the water will spray out to your face too.
This is only to check to see the motor is running normally.
If the water level is good ( that is just touch the filter) and the problem still there, then the other cause the problem will be inside the pump motor the part call the impeller may need changing.
Do you have the manual book so I can show you which part we're talking about and let me know where your district so I can tell you where to get the parts from . My email address is dickson@lau.com God Bless Have a nice day, Dickson

Water not going through spray arms


1.does motor run? no. replace motor. 2.open door and leave the bottom rack inside dw.spin the spray arm underneath the bottom rack by hand. it should spin freely without binding. if it doesnt spin freely take out the bottom rack and try again. if it does spin freely then your bottom rack is laying on your sprayarm preventing it from rotating. 3.you could also not be getting enough water into your dw.
