RE: unit will not start Washing light stuck on or flashing

-Hi all - Before u fork out for 150.00 for an new control board try this.
Shut the power off to the unit. Remove the screws 6 screws and remove the black user panel. Remove the 4 connectors connecting to the handle switch, making note which ones are connected to the respective connection. With the door open verify that all contact points are open by using a mulitimer/continuity test. Close the door and retest. If the contacts are still open then most likley the problem is with the swictch inside the handle. This part is about $ 35.00.. .if it registers closed/shorted then problem is most likely with the Control board. If you still get open you might as well remove it. Now what I did was played with the latching mechanism, the mechanism at first felt soft meanin it did not take much to push down to full position. After mucking around I heard snap and all of sudden the switch felt much firmer to open and close. Redo the continutity test if it is shorting now great. reopen and confirm it's open,, and voila.. put the swicth/handle back on, reconnect put all togther apply power. three lights will blink and press power and u should be good to go. If the switch is wide open, then try to get a new switch/handle before commiting to the cost of the control board..

Lights flash on my Frigidaire dish washer model #FFBD2407LW0A when trying run it through a cycle. will not start. When I turn power off and back on the heat lights flah.


Good Morning friend, thanks for your post!

Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire dishwasher is not starting properly. I would recommend performing a reset on your dishwasher and you can do that by flipping the household circuit breaker off for ten minutes. If you continue to experience this issue it could mean that your control panel or keypad need to be replaced and I would recommend reaching out to a professional technician for proper diagnosis. Hope this helps. -Matt

Clean sanitized washing lights flashing


Hello Brian, thank you for your post!

I understand Clean, Sanitized and Washing feature lights are flashing. Let's try resetting your dishwasher. This can be done by either unplugging or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is important to wait approximately ten minutes and then turn your dishwasher on. Confirm that the door is securely closed and select a cycle. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, it could potentially mean a number of things: a potential wiring failure, door latch assembly, or control board. At this point, I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose your dishwasher to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

Best of luck, Chris!

Good Afternoon Sandra, thank you for your question!

Let's try resetting the dishwasher by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is important to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn dishwasher back on. Confirm that the door is properly latched and try selecting a cycle. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, it could potentially mean a number of things: a potential wiring failure, damaged cord, faulty door latch assembly or control board. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would recommend contacting a professional to properly diagnose and repair the appliance.

Clean light blinks on whirlpool dishwasher won't run


When the light flashes 7 times it means there is/was a problem with the hot water, including a bad heater element. Flip the breaker for a minute and hopefully that will clear the error; otherwise, here's a website that will take you through resetting it.

Blinking lights on frigidaire dishwasher


Hello - Try resetting the dishwasher by disconnecting the power to the unit. This will clear most flashing lights. You can disconnect power by flipping the circuit house breaker off and back on for approximately two minutes. If this does not prove to be successful, contact a professional to move forward accurately. Dishwasher could possibly have a faulty control board or wiring failure.

Kitchenaid dishwasher KUDS01DJ Rinse only light is flashing. control panel is frozen with only rinse only light flashing. does not respond to pressing of any buttons. I flipped the breaker switch,...


Ok, Turn breaker off at breaker panel. Just off then on. The rinse only light should be on.....not flashing. Now press the start button first and hold; then press the cancel button. That should cancel all lights. Then press wash button then start. If the light is still flashing after you turn off breaker....you might have a bigger problem. May need new control panel.

Frigidaire fghd2433kf dishwasher. less than a year old. flashed PF. the power hasnt been off. now whole unit is dead. no lights or movement.


Hello bidness_67 please check inside of the sink cabinet look for a switch on the back wall. If there is one flip it. Many new building electrical codes require a switchto turn off power to the dishwasher. Sometimes when putting items in the cabinet the switch is hit unknowingly. If there is no switch check outlets (the GFCI ones)and press the reset then check the dishwasher.if not those two items check breaker box for a tripped breaker.

FDB1050REC2


Follow up to my Jun 02, 2008 post. We had a service tech come out today, and it turned out that the door switch was bad. The neutral side had continuity with the door shut, but the hot side was sporadic. A new switch has been ordered.

According to the Frigidaire tech sheet attached to the door, which is located beneath the control panel and behind the door skin, the problem could potentially be a bad control panel also.

Hope this helps someone in the future!
