You have to pull out your unit about 3 inches to get to where the latch is screwed in. It is a phillips screw. The part number is 4026DD3001A. In the meantime to keep it closed you are going to have to get creative..

SOURCE: Frigidaire Dishwasher (model FDB1050REB0) Wash Light Flashing

Well, I've got a different problem. I need a control module!!!

BUT!

The flashing WASH light appears to indicate the door latch (switch) is not fully engaged. I proved that I mine which works, just doesn't pump out/drain water. If I unlatch the door and then press START, the WASH light blinks.

*WARNING* 120V ELECTRICAL CURRENT! ONLY ATTEMPT THIS IS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING!

The switch is located behind the control panel (5 screws from the inside.) The Hot (Black) AND Neutral (White) wires comes from the electrical input and pass through the switch. You can do a simple continuity check with the power disengaged to test the path through the switch and into the control module (pins 3 & 9m black and white).

Now... anyone have a Control Module (working) they want to give/sell to me so I don't have to go buy a new dishwasher? I just replaced the drain valve on mine :( If you do, you can send me a note vidioteic (at) gmail (dot) com

Happy Washing!

SOURCE: the latch on the door broke and the machine will

This is a repair that you can easily perform yourself. The part number for the replacement latch is 5304442173. Go to repairclinic.com and type in the this part number and they will also include a new door gasket. All their parts ship with instructions on how to replace as well. Just make sure you secure power to the dishwasher before servicing. If you need assistance with replacing the part, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: Maytag Quiet Series 300 smells broken door latch and lower rack

I have had the same problem and there is a simple fix.

The problem in my case was the floating water sensor was stuck and gummed up with grease.

On the bottom of the dishwasher, in the front right corner there is a round doughnut-looking thing. This is the water level sensor. It is open on the bottom, and grease collects there.

When this happens, the air pocket is too small, and the float won't float. then the dishwasher overflows. To clean it: just reach under with your finger, and scoop out the grease.

Sometimes, after doing this, the float then gets stuck in the "up" position. When this happens, the dishwasher completely drains, and the heater element for the dishwasher is exposed, and food cooks onto it, and that is where the smell is coming from.

SOURCE: I have a frigidaire gallery

It would be helpful to have the full model number of the dishwasher.

Most likely the door seal is swollen and may need replacement.

Alternatively the micoswitch in side the latch assembly is not making contact with the latch tongue.
It is also possible the springs at the door base are too tight and need to be adjusted.

need the model number.

THE LATCH IS READING THAT THE DOOR IS CLOSED BUT I CAN OPEN THE DOOR WHILE THE DISHWASHER IS IN CYCLE. WITH THE SPRING INDISE THE DOOR BEING LOCKED IT WONT EVENT LET ME FULLY SHUT THE DOOR! ANY HELP.


Hello friend, thank you for your post!
From what you have described the spring from the latch is broken inside of the door and you are unable to close your Frigidaire dishwasher. You would need to disassemble the dishwasher in order to replace the latch or spring. This needs to be done by a professional technician as improper disassembly could results in personal injury. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

Latch is not tight when closed


Something must be blocking the door from fully engaging. Pull the loading racks out and put them back after checking they are on track and roll freely. Good luck.

Ge nautilus dishwasher 165d5450p004 latch won't close


RoselsRose,
Thanks for the info about your grandson coming bye the dishwasher and messing with the dial! My son (14 month old) did the same thing and the soap dispenser door/latch would not stay closed. It just kept springing back open. I thought for sure the latch was broke until I saw your post and went to the outside dial and brought it back to off. Sure enough, the soap dispenser door stays closed. You just saved me an expensive repair! Thanks!

Frigidaire fridge door makes a loud popping sound


You need to take the door off the hinges and remove the lower hinge plate from the bottom of the door. This is where I found my popping problem. The black bushing with the 3 bumps and dips on it is loose in the plate going into the door. I took black eletrical tape and rapped it around the part that goes into the plate to tighten the bushing up so it wouldn't turn anymore. ( This was a temp fix to see if the popping would go away) 3 Weeks later and still working. If the sound comes back I will put some double sided sticky back foam on it. Both doors were doing this on my fridge, and now its as quite as a mouse. I hope this fix works for you.
