Question about Frigidaire Dishwashers

Open Question

I have a Frigidaire fdb710lcs0 that never seems to complete a cycle, runs continous, leaves a white cloudy film on the plastic dishes, soap residue on the other dishes, and has a stinky smell now. I first noticed this when I turned the thing on efore leaving for work, came home & it was still running. I have recently wiped "crud" from the bottom inside of the unit where it meets the seal. Although I have read other posts about people cleaning the filter or running a vinegar solution, I don't know how to do either but will read up on both so I can.

SOURCE: UNDISSOLVED SOAP RESIDUE AND

OK, I figured out what was wrong with it! One of the hoses, the one lined in a metallic mesh, was twisted to the point where it was chocking the water flow. There was no need to bring out the dishwasher, just remove the small doors under the front door and I was able to spot the twisted metallic hose. Just cut the power before touching anything and then straighten it and make sure it doesn't bend. Put the small doors back, connect the power and run it. Dishes came out clean as a whistle.

SOURCE: Dishes are not clean; lots of soap residue

Try the combo liguidgel powder packets and wash on the potscrubber plus setting. We saw a drastic improvement with this setting. I have just about gotten out of the habit of thorough pre-washing, but I do rinse heavily soiled items.

SOURCE: my dishwasher leaves a cloudy residue on my dishes

The cloudy residue that is left on your dishes is soap that has not completly broken down.

There are a few solutions to the problem. First off, you want to ensure that you are using the "high temp wash" option. This will boost your water temp during the wash cycle to ensure that all the soap breaks down.

The second thing that you want to do to give your dishwasher a boost, is run the hot water in the sink and make sure it's pipping hot before you start your dishwasher. What this will do is ensure that the water that goes in for the "pre wash" portion of the wash is hot and will improve the wash quality.

Good luck!
