Frigidare dishwasher did not spin


  1. Waste Disposal/Sink trap
    • Empty your food waste disposal unit if your dishwasher's hooked up to one. If it's not empty, the old food inside it will back water up into your machine. Check that your sink trap isn't blocked by unscrewing it from the base of your sink if you don't have a food waste disposal unit. Make sure your dishwasher or any other appliances connected to it are not running when you do so.
    Incomplete Cycle
    • You may have opened your dishwasher's door mid-cycle before it's had a chance to drain. Check the progress indicator on your machine's control panel. The structure of this will differ depending on which Frigidaire model you're using, but it should show the point your machine has reached in its cycle. If this is the cause of the problem, close your dishwasher's door and let it finish.
    Drainage Pipe
    • Inspect the drain pipe that runs from your machine to your waste disposal unit or sink. If this is kinked or has been squashed under another appliance or a base unit, the waste water inside your dishwasher will be unable to escape. Check that water can flow through your waste pipe freely.
    Filter
    • Remove the bottom shelf from inside your machine and take out the plate covering the filter area. If you don't rinse your plates before you put them into your washer, food debris could block your filter and stop water from reaching your drainage pipe. You can unblock your filter with your fingers. Turn off your machine's power before you attempt to do so.

Water from the sink fills up the dish washer


I had a similar problem with a washing machine, until I replumbed my waste pipes. My Washing Machine waste pipe was attached to the down pipe just under the sink bowl. I found that the U bend trap was too high and the water level in the U-bend was at the same level as the Washing machine waste pipe was attached. So we has syphoning back into the washing machine. I moved the U bend trap down by 3 inches 7 cm, so now the water leaves the washing machine falls the 3 inches to the water level of the U bend. We now have no more syphoning back into the washing machine.

Does the outlet pipe have to go directly into the spigot on the kitchen sink trap? or can it go into a free standing waste pipe /


The plumbing code in your area will specify where you can or can't go with the outlet line. You wouldn't want to attach it to a line where any waste from another source would pass the dishwasher connection line, because the waste could flow back into the dishwasher. That's why you normally route it to the sink or garbage disposal (no concerns about waste from another source getting into the dishwasher line).

Water is not getting drained from the botom of the machine


Hi,

There are several possibilities as to why water isn't draining from your washer:

1. Blocked drain filter
The filter is usually at the bottom of the wash compartment. You didn't state which model of dishwasher you have, so please refer to your user manual for instructions for cleaning your filter. If you don't have a manual, please post back here with your dishwasher brand and model number for information on cleaning your filter and where to download a manual if one is available.


2. Blocked/kinked waste hose
Check the waste outflow hose at the back of the washer for any kinks or other damage. Also remove the hose where it attaches to your sink (or waste outlet) and check for any blockages both in the end of the hose and at the sink attachment. If there is a lot of dirt in the hose, it may be blocked somewhere further back.

3. Blocked waste disposal / sink trap / waste outflow
Make sure your sink is draining efficiently. Clean as necessary

4. Faulty waste pump
If all of the above check out, you may have a faulty pump. Please post back for further advice regarding this after completing the above checks.

Regards,
BElectric

Ineed an installation manual for a Whirpool Model DU806cwdb5 dish


You will have 2 pipes and a flex, Or 1 pipe 1 flex and a connection for a inlet pipe.
Connect the gray, larger pipe to the waste out let(drop in a stack or connect to a "spiggot", then connect the smaller pipe to the water inlet, you can usually connect to the washing machines inlet using a "y" piece, remembering to shut off the water before disconnecting. Then plug in the flex and away you go.(remembering to turn the water back on and a quick check for any leaks)

FRIGIDAIRE DISHWASHER & INSINKERATOR DISPOSAL


Sounds like your waste pipes aren,t connected properly.You need a water trap (u bend) between the dishwasher and the main waste pipe from the sink. Any decent plumber should be able to fix in less than an hour.Cheers Derek.

I want to plumb in a dishwasher but there is no waste pipe for the dishwasher to join on to


Hi,
If there is a kitchen sink nearby you should be able to get a plastic waste pipe adaptor from a hardware store that simply screws in below the sink plug hole and joins to the U-bend pipework. It will have a short stub pipe on it for attaching the dishwasher drain pipe.
Hope this helps. D.

Hi there can a waste pipe extension be cut and then connected to a p trap spiggot? many thanks dean


yes it can. however check that the spigot is not blanked off - they usually are to prevent water gushing out when you empty the sink. remove the blank

ok. our machine has done this for 6 months or so, it was ok for the 1st 6 months. i have checked and cleaned and unblocked and gone bloody crazy. today i found the fault and fixed quickly.

the installer stuffed up. the waster water hose must head up and be fixed just under your bench top, then come down hill to your exit/spiggot/drain attachment.

ours was just lying more or less at floor level coming up to the spiggot. so whenever the waste water pump switched off, water would run back into the machine, hence the OE error, and also dirty water with food would then get chucked around it what should have been a clean rinse.

a diagram of the waste water house and how it should be done is in the manual.

i just about blew $1500 on a new machine !!
