Question about Frigidaire Professional Series 24 in. Built-In Dishwasher Dishwasher

Open Question

My Dishwasher is a Frigidaire FDB2415LFCO and the tank isnt filing with enough water...I start the cycle and the water flows into the tank but only fills up below the screen Approx 87 sec. of water intake time...the circ pump kicks on with great power and the arms begin to spin but stop. the heat element smells like it is burning when it comes on and is dry. I have manually added water and it causes the arms to kick in but they stop because the water level regulates to a lower level...taken everything apart but found no build up or blockage...help

SOURCE: dishwasher problems

TURN POWER TO OFF ... REMOVE THE LOWER RACK. THE SPINNING SPRAY BAR USUALLY WILL LIFT SRAIGHT-UP AND OUT ... INSPECT TO SEE IF ANY THING IS IN THERE TO PREVENT IT FROM SPINING FREELY ... THEY SPIN BY WATER PRESSURE SO THE NEXT THING TO CHECK IS THE WATER SUPPLY VALVE (MOST OF THE TIME IT IS RIGHT UNDER YOUR SINK.) AND THE STARAINER is LOCATED WHERE IT CONECTS TO THE DISH WASHER. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A BUCKET AND RAGS HANDY FOR SPILLS... CAREFULLY TURN THE VALVE OFF AND REMOVE THE COMPRESSION FITTING NUT THAT IS ON THE "SIDE CLOSEST TO THE WASHER".... THEN CRACK THE VALVE OPEN AND FILL THE BUCKET UP A FEW TIMES TO ENSURE GOOD WATER FLOW. TURN VALVE "OFF" AND GO TO WERE THE LINE OR HOSE CONNECTS TO THE WASHER. REMOVE THE CONNECTION ... INSIDE YOU SHOULD FIND A STRAINER THAT MAYBE CLOGGED UP. CLEAN-IT AND MAKE SURE TO TIGHTEN ALL THE CONNECTIONS BEFORE STARTING A TRIAL RUN. NOTE: THERE IS A SOLENOID INSIDE THE MACHINE THAT CAN STICK AND GET CLOGGED BUT USUALLY ITS THE VALVE OR THE STRAINER. GOOD LUCK AND STAY DRY ... Joe_Rex

It is very possible that something could be obstructing the main pump. But, first. Does your dishwasher fill with enough water? When full, the water level should fill to just below the heating element. You can check this by waiting for the fill cycle to stop and the normal wash cycle to begin. Open the door and check the water level. If your dishwasher isn't getting enough water, you could have a bad fill valve, or the inlet water line could be kinked. If this isn't the case, then suspect that you might have a clogged pump. Food particles such as popcorn kernels, orange or lemon seeds, small chicken bones and glass are notorious for getting into the pump screen area and obstructing the water flow (some of the other items I have found are labels off jars, bottle top seals, twist ties, rib bones, hair scrunchies, and yes - even band-aids!). Even though some dishwasher manufacturers advertise some amazing capabilities of their dishwashers, you still need to scrape your dishes of all food particles as much as possible. This does not mean you have to pre-wash prior to loading them. Anything that doesn't get dissolved by the wash cycle and detergent will end up sitting in the pump well. If the pump isn't able to pump enough water, your dishwasher will fill normally, but the spray arms will not turn, detergent does not dissolve and your dishes will not come clean. To get to the pump, you need to remove the lower spray arm and the coarse screen (located directly under the lower spray arm). The pump well should be located under the coarse screen. Look for anything that may restricting the water flow. I hope this helps and it's easy fix for you.

SOURCE: I have a Frigidaire Ultra

I may have the answer. I had what sounded to be the same problem. I found the dishes were dirty after they were cleaned, but I found there may have been a big pot lid blocking the upper arm. I decided to run the machine again, and after a bit opened the dishwasher after to make sure it was not a problem with the arm. Sure enough, the arm wasn't moving. However, I found out on the Frigidaire webpage that some models have an alternating spray cycle, where only one arm spins at any given time. After reading this I checked again, and it had moved by that time. I checked a few times more to confirm this. So it ended up it was an arm blockage after all. Hope this helped...good luck.

SOURCE: frigidaire fdb949gf dishwasher won't spray water from arms

I found on my first dishwasher the arm holes were plugged. I had to clean out each and every hole with a small wire. They would not even turn until I cleaned them God luck.

Hi, if your unit is getting good water pressure then the problem is going to be your flow meter which is the device that measures how much water is coming into the unit. If it doesn't detect enough water coming into the unit, the dishwasher will hault and give you check water light error. When the error comes up look at the water in the bottom and see if you have enough water in the bottom for a cycle. If not then your flow meter is fine and your unit truely isn't getting enough water which means that either your house isn't giving good water pressure to the dishwasher, or the electronic water valve that connects to the water line from your house is bad and needs to be replaced....

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

Soap not Disolving


possibly the water is not hot enough, it needs to be hooked up to a hot water line ONLY. also check to see what cycle the dishwasher is set at, there are three or four different settings. start off by using the pots and pans cycle because that cycle will delay the wash to superheat the water.
remember hot water only and water should be set at 120 degrees.
good luck to ya

Dishwasher


  This dishwasher does not feed water to top and bottom arms at same time.  It starts with bottom and then after awhile it switches to top and then cycles.  If water comes out arms but arms won't turn,  check all holes in arms.  It's the water spraying out these that causes arms to turn.   If arms spin freely by hand,  it's a plugged arm or holes in arm or insufficient water in tank. 
  Being that it only sprays 4 inches suggests a water level problem or possible mineral build up restricting flow.
