Hello & Welcome to FixYa
The problem is with the float switch assembly that is bad and needs replacement. A float switch on a dishwasher is designed for one thing, to stop the water flow from the dishwashers water valve. To access the dishwasher float switch regardless of the make or model, 99% of dishwashers are accessed from behind the toe kick panel i.e by removing the front bottom access panel.When the timer or main control call for water, power is sent through the float switch wires, when the dishwasher has filled up raising the plastic mushroom looking piece high enough, the switch will stop power from getting to the water valve. That is the idea behind the switch, to further test this switch with a volt meter you can view this video:

Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Leaves a white soapy film on pots, pans and dishes


Are you overloading your dishwasher? Are you loading the dishes in such a way to cover the water shooting up from the blades? Have you run your dishwasher a few times with no dishes in it, adding straight white vinegar to clean it out? How old is your dishwasher?

Our dishwasher is leaving a film on glasses and pots and pans.


I recommend the use of a product called Rinse Aid. Find it where dishwasher products are sold.

Frigidaire Dishwasher problem


The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher2_bing.gif filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com to find out more info.

Doesn't clean properly, Leaves dry residue in washer


My dishwasher had the same problem. glasses were cloudy, inside the dishwasher was coated with a film, drawers were hard to pull out. tried rinse agents and vinegar and nothing worked. Found lemi-shine at WalMart (it's next to the dishwasher detergent) and the white stuff is gone! no more residue and glasses sparkle again. I was ready to buy a new dishwasher I was so frustrated. get some - it's amazing! a couple bucks and it's back to normal. I was SOOOO happy!
