Frigidaire Dishwashers - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

I had water at the bottom of my 4 year old plus dishwasher and of course I thought the worst. Did the pump go out, bad impeller, or what else could it be! I started with the easy stuff first and disconnected the drain lines. The drain line runs from the dishwasher to an air gap mounted to my sink, which keeps the drain line from getting an airlock. From the air gap device another larger line runs to the garbage disposal. I used an 8MM wrench to loosen the clamps enough to pull the drain lines off and drained them into a bucket. There really wasn't any resistance to water flow and no real chunks, I was disappointed.
I then took the actual air gap out of the sink by removing a large plastic nut and pulling the devise out from underneath the sink. When I inspected the air gap I saw a wad of hairy, feathery plastic stuff blocking the flow of water. I took the chunk out, reassembled everything and it works like new again.
It is a very easy fix and now even the area under the sink is clean to boot.

I had the same problem. I pressed the "Start Cancel" button, kept it down, then pressed "Rinse Only" button. The display then went clear. I pressed "Start Cancel" again, then "83" showed up on the display. I let it run its cycle, then it corrected itself. A little scary, but it worked. This answer board is great!

It sounds like your first problem with the detergent may be that you are blocking the little door that releases the deterget with tall dishes. When you stack the machine hold the door partially open to make sure that you are going to stop the little door opening. I do this on a regular basis when my brain is not functioning.

It is hard to address your other questions without being there. For example, make sure that you don't put thin things like chopsticks in the silverware tray so that they go through the bottom and block the lower spray arm. You can open the door during the cycle to see what is going on inside.

Lastly, the drain pump will change pitch when the machine is empty of water. Could the noise be that? Also the drying fan kicks in at this point.

So far so good. I fixed mine by removing the vent and even though it says no repairable parts I disassembled it then removed the rubber gasket and cleaned it with a brush under hot water. I then cleaned the plastic ring it seals against. Next I removed the spring and stretched it to make it about a quarter inch longer and then reinstalled the spring then the rubber gasket and then closed up the unit. So far it is working fine. I suspect the real problem is that there is a tiny sensor that needs to be covered when the vent is closed. If this is not covered the uo error code is generated.
