Question about Frigidaire Dishwashers

Open Question

My Frigidaire dishwasher has a problem, obviously! I select a wash cycle and right away the pump comes on and the CL (close door) indicator flashes when the door's closed, and doesn't do anything but what I've described when I push the start button. The pump isn't supposed to kick in until I've pushed the start button...and no time on the indicator comes up. What's wrong? My Model # is: FDB2415LFSO. My Serial # is: TH71229797. Thanks for your prompt assistance!

SOURCE: Flashes "CL" to close door when it is closed and won't start

The "CL" is telling you that "Child Lock" is on.
Nothing will happen until it is turned off.Information on this is in the booklet that came with your dishwasher.

My dishwasher FDB2510LCC1 get a cl code while washing and stays running on the wash stage until it is shut off


Hello Randy, thank you for your inquiry!
From the information you have provided your Frigidaire dishwasher is displaying an error code of "CL" this means close door. The dishwasher may not be sensing that the door switch is closed. The "CL" means that you could have a possible issue with the main control board or door latch. I would recommend checking to make sure the latch does not have any visible damage. This could also be a miscommunication within your dishwasher and a reset may help clear it out. In order to reset the dishwasher you would flip the household circuit breaker off for at least ten minutes. We hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

Why does display flashes "cl"?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand the display is flashing "cl" on your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# GLD2450RD. The "cl" code you are seeing is stating to close your dishwasher door. The status indicator lights will also flash to indicate current cycle status. If the door is closed, try pushing it in just to make sure. 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 appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Frigidaire dishwasher model FDB2320REC0 when I push the normal wash CL flashes


Hello linda_ross88 - Typically CL indicates that the main control board is not sensing that the door is properly closing. One of the best ways to determine if this is a false error code is to reset the power to the appliance by either unplugging it or flipping off the breaker for about 30 seconds. If the error code persists, typically an expert would need to check the door switches, wiring, and test the main control board. Regrettably, this is not a simple DIY job. I would strongly recommend seeking a professional to narrow down the precise issue before investing in parts that may or may not be the root cause.

On the display is a flashing CL, according to the manual the latch is not closed. Tried several times to close the door and push the normal wash button. Nothing happens, only the CL light is on. Tried...


Hi

Error CL appears when the dishwasher control detects door switch is open or door is open. You'll have to open the door and check the continuity of the door switch. If the door seems to be closed then it is the control has detected an issue with the door latch. Check the door latch & seals to make sure door is closing fine. Unplug the dishwasher from power outlet and wait for 10-15 minutes. Restart the dishwasher and check if the error is still there. If error still appears then you'll need to repalce the door switch/door latch. Hope this helps... Please post back for further assistance.

Flashes "CL" to close door when it is closed and won't start


The door switch has failed. There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html that will walk you thru testing and replacing. It may be a different model but the process will be the same. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model.

Frigidaire pld3460rdc1 the dishwasher flashed CL when the door is closed.


The CL is letting you know that the door was closed. If it continues to show CL it means you need to close and latch before the cycle will run. If it just flashes your okay.

Dishwasher problem


First: this is what Whirlpool says!!
And after this at the bottom Is what the repair manual says when I looked it up for you!


Dishwasher is not operating properly
1.Dishwasher does not run or stops during a cycle
Is the Start/Resume indicator flashing? Opening the door or
interrupting the power stopped the cycle. Close the door and
press START/RESUME.
2.Does the Start/Resume indicator flash 3 times when you
press START/RESUME? The dishwasher is waiting for you to
open the door after the last cycle. Open and close the door,
then press START/RESUME.
3.Is the door closed tightly and latched?
(NOTE: On models with a dual-digit display, the control
displays “- -” during a cycle if it believes the door is not
latched.)
4.Is the right cycle selected? Refer to the “Cycle Selection
Charts.”
5.Is there power to the dishwasher? Has a household fuse
blown, or has a circuit breaker tripped?
6.Has the motor stopped due to an overload? The motor
automatically resets itself within a few minutes. If it does not
restart, call for service.
7.Is the water shutoff valve (if installed) turned on?
It is normal for certain cycles to repeatedly pause for several
seconds during the main wash.
___________________________________________________________

BUT, the repair manual says this


Faulty Pump and Motor Assembly Some models that will not wash or drain often have a faulty Pump and Motor Assembly. If the motor is receiving power from the timer and it is not operating that is the case.
Temporary Work-around:
With the power turned off to the unit, sometimes it is possible to manually rotate the cooling fan on the motor assembly. In certain situations where the dishwasher has set idle for a period of time, this may free the bearings enough that the unit will begin to operate. Where this works as a short term solution in some cases, it is often a sign of things to come. The frequency of the motor seizing will increase until it will simply no longer work.

I think this is a hands job that needs service and hands on attention!
I hope it's not the motor or pump!

How old is the machine?
If they tell you it is an expensive motor then you need to know this!!!!


Let me know how it goes!
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!

If the dishwasher will not fill

Check the overfill protection float that is able to move up and down
freely? Press down to release.

Let me know if any of these procedures helped you?

Dishwasher made clicking sound, then CL light, now nuthin'


I had a similar problem. After a $90 service call I was told it was the main electronic panel. The panel costs $180 and installation is $70. No Frigidaire is worth that. You, like I, should buy a new non-Frigidaire.
