My dishwasher is not cleaning the dishes on the

There is a pipe/tube that runs up the back of the inside of your dishwasher. This provides water for the top spray arm. The spray arm has a feeder tube that covers the pipe in the back. If for some reason the feeder tube has come dislodged, the water just drips back down into the dishwasher, never touching your upper shelf. My kids used to jam cutting boards and other large items into the lower shelf and in so doing, would dislodge the upper spray arm feeder tube. Just pull out the upper shelf and check to see that the tube is in the correct position. This should solve the problem.

If not, then the spray arm may have debris in it that keeps the water from being forced through the jets. You'll need to flush the arm with the spray attachment on your kitchen sink. I sometimes use tweezers or a toothpick to dislodge bits of peelings, paper, or bone that manage to get into the sprayer arm.
I hope one of these tips helps. If it does,please come back to fixya and rate my answer.

How do you fix the door latch?? will not latch so

You must take the screws out that hold the front panel on. Lean the inner panel away from the front and you will see the latch system .

I have a fridgidaire Gallery

Most likely the wash sump is blocked. Refer this diagram. You will have to open the sump (item 14) and look for the golf ball type device (item 58). This must be stuck in the drain position. This dishwasher uses common sump for wash and drain and the ball acts like a valve to direct water in the proper direction.

Not sure if you replaced the motor assembly because the motor was not working or because you felt it was linked to the water not circulating.

Hope this helps fix the problem. Please rate the solution to help fixya serve you better in future.

Frigidaire dishwasher sanitize cycle

A High Limit Thermostat is what it says. If the temperature goes over limit, it cuts power to the element. The temperature itself is controlled by an electronic sensor called a thermistor, or a standard 'thermostat'. Try a reset control board first. https://www.google.com/search?q=Frigidaire+dishwasher+Model+FDB1500LFC0+reset How to enter Diagnostics Mode https://www.google.com/search?q=Frigidaire+dishwasher+Model+FDB1500LFC0+run+diagnostics ..

Frigidaire FGID2466QF7A dishwasher touchpad non-responsive

I called Frigidaire with these codes. They said it indicates a power failure happened (during a wash cycle, I suppose) and to do a hard reset. A hard reset is turning off the breaker for 30+ minutes and then flipping the breaker back on. This kind of worked, but simultaneous to the error codes, the push/pull latch on my dishwasher got set to the closed position while the door was open, so the door would not latch. I feel that this was the initial problem that caused these codes. So in my case, I had to manually rotate the latch open with bent piece of wire, to get it into the correct position first. Then the hard reset seemed fix the error codes. I was able to start a wash. It's running now.

Hi temp/heat dry lights flashing on a frigidaire dishwasher

Please read!! This happened to us and we paid money to have repair men come look and they didn't solve the problem. Your door latch is being caught on the bottom of your counter top. Pull your dishwasher out a half an inch and try again. It fixed our problem when we had this happen!

How do I reset my Frigidaire dishwasher? eR light is flashing

Good Afternoon Sammy, thank you for your inquiry!

Based off the information you have provided you would like to reset your Frigidaire dishwasher because it is flashing "ER". The best way to reset your dishwasher is to flip the household circuit breaker off for roughly ten minutes. If you continue to receive the "ER" code it could be a possible problem with your main control board or keypad. I hope this is helpful information. -Matt

What does CL code mean?

The Frigidaire Appliances company designed most of its dishwashers to visually alert and display to users that the door is ajar, via the "CL" code. The dishwasher won't start pumping in hot water or rotating the spray arms until the door is secure.
