Question about Frigidaire 24 in. FDB1250RE Built-in Dishwasher
When I am setting the delay (either 2,4,6 hours)and make sure the door *clicks* like the operating book says, head to bed, I wake up to a dishwasher full of still dirty dishes and the dishwasher has turned itself off. The dispenser cup has not been opened or anything. It looks like I never even set it. If I just turn it on to and press start, it runs fine. I am only having problems with the delay feature. Thanks!
Does the power go off in your house from time to time? Have you tried to do a 2-hr delay during the day so you can watch it? Keep checking every 15 min. or so to see approx. when it shuts off.
