Question about Frigidaire 24 in. PLD2560LCC Energy Star® Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

I have a Frigidaire dishwasher. Model FDB520RHS0, Serial TH92539147. The drum fills with water but will not drain. I purchased the unit about 2 years ago. It has been used sparingly and mostly on light wash. I removed the basket and could find nothing blocking the drain. Is there a fix? Can I replace the drain pump? The unit is making a noise as if it is trying to drain but nothing is happening. I have checked the drain line for clogs and it is clear and the terminal end is connected to the sink disposer which is clear also.

SOURCE: The dishwasher does not drain water

My dishwasher's problem was that something got stuck in the drain at the bottom of the dishwasher pan. I took that apart cleaned it and it worked. Apparently this problem is inherent to this model and will probably be recurring. Be prepared!

SOURCE: KitchenAid Dishwasher fill up with water after use

Hi BB,
There are only 2 places the DW can get water from. One is the drain line and the other is the supply line. We need to eliminate one to diagnose the problem, OK?

The first picture is a drain hose gone wrong...

Inspect your drain hose. If it looks like the pic above, you gotta fix that. Even IF that's not the problem right now... it will be in the future (and MAY be contributing to the problem now). You'll need to loosen the clamp, remove the drain hose from its' fitting, pull as much slack as you can get from the DW and then make a "loop" in it before reconnecting it. Like this...

The DW drain loop should be as high as the highest part of the sink...

I know that you have done a lot of experimenting in an attempt to figure this out. Just make sure that the drain hose is installed properly to eliminate it as the cause of the flood issue.

After you've made sure about the drain hose, leave the DW alone overnight. If you see water in the tub the next morning, you definitely have a failed valve on your DW. Since it's new (less than a year?) the valve is under warranty and will be replaced at no charge.

Hope this helps. If it's out of warranty let me know and I'll do the part look up for you and provide detailed replacement instructions, OK?

How do you reset the pump for this dishwasher


Hello friend, that's a great question!

To perform a manual reset on your Frigidaire dishwasher you would need to disconnect power to your appliance. The best way to do that is flip the household circuit breaker for roughly about ten minutes. Hope this is helpful. -Matt

Lafw7000lw reviews


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that the fabric softener cup in your Frigidaire washer, model# LAFW7000LW, never drains and is filled with dirty water. This is a result of the siphoning action and is part of the normal operation of your washer. You may remove the water by removing the dispenser drawer and draining the water into the empty drum or sink. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your washer status has changed. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Frigidaire gallery dishwasher model#DGHD2433KF1 water droplets remaining on top lower water not draining all the way leaving an odori


Two things to consider....clean water or dirty water?

Clean water usually indicates the fill valve is not shutting off all the way and the fill valve is "weeping" water in all the time = new fill valve time!!

Dirty water usually is not a dishwasher problem but more of a plumbing issue. Often the sink drain that carries the sinks water outside is not fast enough and some of this sink water is backing up into the drain hose and filling up the dishwasher through the drain hose. The drain from the sink to outside needs attention as this type of a problem indicates a slow house drain for that sink.

The dishwasher drain line should be clamped to the top underneath part of the counter before entering the sink drain plumbing, this may help the water from coming back inside the dishwasher.

Model: Frigidaire GPDB998JC0 It fills and drains


Check your water level to see if the water valve is even filling up properly. After starting the cycle, listen when the water fillup begins and ends. Open door and see if there is enough water at the bottom. Should fill up to the float valve. If there is not enough water, the valve needs to be replaced. Costs about $25 and can be replaced diy if you are handy with pushing back the hose clamp and undoing and redoing the water line connection.
Make sure you unplug the electric, and shut off the water before you even want to look behind the toe plate. Dishwashers have high electric hazard behind the toe plate..

Frigidaire FDP635RFR3 wont drain.


Theres a drain pump located at the bottom of the unit if you follow the hose from the pump then to the drain if your unit isnt draining you might have to call for service from a technician to have them change your drain pump. If the water is just sitting inside the unit and when u start the unit it should fill with water again.Also if you have a cancel function by pressing this you will make the unit drain if you dont hear anything when u press the cancel button you definetly need a pump

Kenmore dishwasher 58715142400 fills but doesn't wash


Motor has gone out..just like mine...Make sure u have voltage going to the motor, (disconnect the plug from the motor) and use an electric meter to make sure you have voltage going to the motor. If so the motor has either gone out or has been blocked by something! If no noise except clicking then motor has gone out. Looking at about $150 for motor.
