Question about Dishwashers

Open Question

I have a new FDB520RHS2A Frigidaire dishwasher which remains in the wash cycle after I've started it. It sounds as if it is changing cycles but the wash light stays lit and never switches to rinse. The machine continues to run for hours if I don't stop it. We've checked the drain to the garbage disposal and it is clear. the water temp seems to be hot enough but how do I check that? Any ideas on what we should check before we bring it back to the store? Your help is much appreciated. Thanks!

SOURCE: washer

If I'm not mistaken, these dishwashers are built by Asko for Viking. If thats the case then you probably have a bad circulation pump. Under Asko's warranty (not sure if Viking is the same) these pumps are covered parts and labor for 3 years from installation date, and 5 years for the part only. The pump is accesed from the back of the machine,so you have to pull out the dishwasher. Then you remove the lower plate in the rear and the motor at the very back center is the pump. You remove it by turning it about a 1/4 turn either clockwise or counter clockwise, depending on the style, then place the new one in and turn it to lock it in place, being careful that the sealing oring stays in place or youll get a leak. The part will probably cost you around $150 unless viking marks theirs up more than Asko. Good Luck!

SOURCE: My Frigidaire Dishwasher motor is not spinning rinse cycle

am not sure.. just try this
Check with a multi-meter for 115/220V on motor's tags.
If you don't get this voltage measurement, your problem is not with the motor.
In case you have 115/220V on motor's tags, try first to replace its brushes (2 carbon contacts that transfer the curent to the motor's armature).
try this good luck

SOURCE: How to knock out garbage disposal plug

Turn off the power source to the garbage disposal. Take the drain hose from the dishwasher off the connector going to the disposal (if connected). Insert a flat blade screwdriver in the drain hose fitting and tap a few times with a hammer. The plastic plug will pop off inside the garbage disposal. Reach inside from the top of the disposal to retrieve the plastic plug. Sometimes you have to use a little force to tap the plug out. Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: Dishwasher drains continuously

I dismantled and checked various parts of the dishwasher and everything seemed to be working. I noticed with a phase tester that the pressostat never got any voltage. This led me to check the microswitch on the door which turned out to be broken (never making any connection). This is the microswitch that turns off the dishwasher when someone opens the door.

So an unusual problem - two faults at the same time i.e. clogged and overflowing drain and broken door switch!

I ordered and fitted a new door switch and now the machine is working fine again.

Cycle starts, but does not fill with water


When I start a new cycle, I first hear the pump run to empty out all remaining water, and after that I hear the motor run for the regular washing cycle, but there is no water in the dishwasher. After a few minutes, the cycle stops, and the washer claims the dishes are 'clean'. When I try starting a new cycle over and over again, about one in 20 times, the cycle will run normally with water. But then the next time, the problem starts all over again. Once a cycle starts correctly, everything works fine, including the rinsing.

Loud sounds


Many Frigidaire dishwashers come with the promise of being the "quietest dishwasher in its class," according to Frigidaire. However, a quiet dishwasher doesn't necessarily mean that the dishwasher is silent, as some noises are normal. It can take some troubleshooting at times to determine if a noise coming from the dishwasher is typical or if it indicates a larger problem Listen for the sound of water filling and draining throughout the wash cycle. These sounds are normal and do not indicate an issue.

  • 2 Pay attention to the drain motor, which operates at the beginning of each cycle. This noise should be fairly quiet and should not sound like a loud, grinding or banging sound.
  • 3 Note that the sound will change when the wash cycle moves between the lower and middle spray arms. This sound should be temporary and fairly quiet.
  • 4 Look for hard items in the dishwasher grinder or filter if a loud crunching, buzzing or grinding sound is heard. The dishwasher can typically grind up these items within one or two cycles, but the item may be lifted out and discarded to eliminate the sound.
  • 5 Remove the bottom rack and spray arms from the bottom of the dishwasher if there is a loud noise coming from the dishwasher that does not resolve itself. Look inside for the impeller, which is round and spins. Remove any debris that may be clogging up the impeller or pump.

    Please help! I just moved into a new house where the Frigidaire dishwasher worked great for 2 weeks. Now, it's leaving hard salt-like granules all over my dishes and not rinsing all the food off. ...


    Your dishwasher has clogged water ports.
    Start the dishwasher with NO dishes in it.
    Once it starts the wash cycle,open the door and pour in 1 quart of WHITE vinegar and resume the wash cycle.
    That should clear out the residue.
    Change your dishwasher soap to the FINISH brand name for happy clean dishes.
