Question about Frigidaire Dishwashers

1 Answer

Not draining well. Disassembled lower sprayer down to interior pump below 3 allen screws and found no obstructions and pump blades turned OK with slight resistance only! (Felt normal for a small pump motor). Tested after re-assembly with no improvement! Any helpful suggestions? I'm a pretty handy guy with experience on other appliances, just have'nt done a dishwasher before! Thanks, Hart Terrell.

I have a 3 1/2 ton floor jack it is a craftman it will lift, but whene i put weight to it it will not lift anything where do you put the oil in to it. thanks gerald


Hi, Gerald -

You either need to top up the oil, or change the oil. Both of these are easy to do.
You'll need some high-grade jack oil, an Allen wrench, a rag or two, and a funnel.

1.) Relieve the pressure and lower the jack arm all the way down.
2.) Remove the tool tray from between the two rear wheels.
3.) Wipe the oil fill plug clean. (You don't want any gunk or debris falling inside.)
4.) Remove the plug with the Allen wrench.

Look inside. If the oil level is at or below the inner cylinder wall, you'll need to add oil. Don't go more than 3/16"-1/4" above the inner cylinder wall.

With the pressure still off, gently raise & lower the arm two or three times. Check and adjust your oil level again. Then screw the plug back in & tighten it with your Allen wrench.

Everything OK? Great. If not, repeat 1 through 4, then lay the jack on its side & drain ALL the oil out (into a container). When it's empty, set it upright & fill it. Again, raise & lower the arm several times.

Replace the plug, tighten it, then test. Raise the jack all the way up, then lower it all the way down, without any load on it. Repeat this two more times. (This helps to dissipate the air bubbles in the oil.) It should now be ready to use.

It is flashing f-21 and it won,t spin


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

The "F21" on your model of washer indicates the machine has detected a fault or obstruction in the drain process, hence it cannot spin correctly either.

Chances are the pump is being obstructed by debris or some other foreign object.

Here`s how to check it and clean it...

**Turn off the breaker at the service panel or unplug the washer from the wall socket...safety first**

1) locate the screws in front at the very bottom of the panel below the door and pull the panel down and forward until it is off. They will be either 1/4" hex head or #20 torx head screws.

2) You will immediately see the drain pump in front of you with a large removeable filter. ( this is were a shop vac and towels come in handy, also the use of the removed panel as a catch pan is beneficial...but you may still get wet )

3) Turn it counter-clockwise should allow you to remove it and inspect it and clean it out. Make a good thorough inspection inside the pump as well not just the removeable filter.

4) Re-insert the filter and before placing the panel back run a test rinse/drain cycle to inspect for leaks and to varify the unit drains and spins now.

( If the problem still exist`s the "F21" will re-appear. If so you`ll need to check the drain hose, hose from pump to tub for other obstructions ).

5) If all appears OK after your efforts, well your efforts paid off...pat yourself on the back. You just saved yourself potentially a hundred bucks !

Now You should be good to go. Re-attach the lower panel and you`re back in business.

Let me know how it goes and if you require further assistance.

Thanks for choosing FixYa. Please take a moment to rate the solution provided for you here today.

Good luck.

Does not pump all the water


Posted solution had a link to the manual. This was the key. Problem was lint in the drain pump impeller. Necessarey to remove pump cover (no need to dismount pump) with an allen wrench. Note of caution the pump housing is soft and the allen screws can strip out.

We have taken apart the bottom of the dishwasher to be sure no food was clogging the exit. It is clear but the water still willnot drain


HI In most dishwashers, the water pump is located under the lower sprayer arm. This component pumps the water through the dishwasher. The pump has two impellers, top and bottom. These, as well as other components, can become clogged with food or detergent. Here's how to disassemble the pump:

Step 1: Remove the cap that holds the sprayer arm on.

Step 2: Remove the sprayer arm, the screen, the pump housing, a bolt, the upper impeller, the food disposer blade, a spacer plate, the impeller hood, a flat plate, an O-ring, and the lower impeller. Lay the parts out in order as you disassemble them so that you'll be able to reassemble them properly.

Step 3: Clean the parts thoroughly with a mild detergent solution. If any parts are worn, replace them with new ones made for the dishwasher.

Step 4: Replace any seals, such as the O-ring or other washers, with new ones.

Step 5: Reassemble the pump, keeping the parts in order.

To reach the water pump, remove the sprayer arm and screen and then the pump housing. Remove the bolt, and the pump components can be disassembled.

On some dishwashers, the lower impeller serves as a drain pump. This type of system usually has a reversible motor; machines with nonreversible motors have drain valves, as detailed previously. If your machine possesses this impeller pump system, and the water will not drain from the dishwasher, clean the lower pump impeller. This may solve the problem. Otherwise, call a professional service person.

Dishwasher holds water


if you dishwasher holds water that means the plumbing connections may be faulty. Most dishwashers are connected to the water supply with metal pipe fittings, and the leak could be at these fittings. If the fittings are threaded, tighten them with an adjustable wrench. If this doesn't work, chances are the threads are stripped or the fitting is cracked or otherwise damaged. In this case, replace the fitting.

Most dishwashers discharge used water through a pipe or a hose connected to the drain or garbage disposer under the kitchen sink. If the drain line is made of flexible hosing, it may have cracked from prolonged exposure to hot water. Examine the hose; if it's damaged, replace it. If the hose is leaking at its connections with the disposer or dishwasher, tighten the fittings or clamps at the connections, or replace the clamps. Also check for water leaks around inlet valves, drain valves, and anywhere you see flexible hoses and hose connections. Leaks at clamps can be stopped by tightening or replacing the clamps. Leaks in hoses can be eliminated by replacing the hoses.
also it may be due to faulty pump
