Frigidaire Dishwasher FDB1050REC1 - Washing Indicator Light Blinking

I am currently having a problem with my dishwasher. It is less than a year old. Whenever I try to start a cycle by pressing the start/cancel button, the washing indicator light just blinks and it will not start. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Washing Indicator Light Blinks - but the darn thing doesn't start. It's closed properly (I hear the click), I've tried turning the circuit breaker on & off. Still just blinks.

    Blinking "washing" light, cycle does not start... checked water feed, no problem there... door clicks shut fine...

    Worked fine yesterday. Today, I have the flashing Indicator light. It is one month past the warrenty. Of course. Since it is built-in, I don't know how to check the water hookups.

    I have the Frigidaire 1000 series dishwasher. Unit worked fine yesterday. Today when I tried to start another load the washing light just blinks.

    I have the same problem, but there is flooding on the bottom of the dishwahser. Maybe it is a clogged drain? I am going to try and clean out the strainer and drain the pool of water when I get home. The not starting may be a smart feature the dishwasher uses to prevent flooding of the floor.

Here is what happened, you pulled the door open without pressing cancel and allowing it to pump the water out, hence the "flooding in the bottom". This is just one reason why it maybe blinking, there is a water sensor in the bottom. If your dishwasher is hooked up properly to any decent garbage disposal, run the disposal for about 30 seconds to a minute. This should pump the water out, more like activate a light siphoning affect. It should work as normal. If you are not having luck with that, detach the DW drain get it low and let it siphon.

Make sure the water feed is open....although I don't know this make and model, a flashing light at the start of a program is usually always to do with a water feed problem....make sure there is sufficient water pressure at the hose (by closing the tap, removing the feed from the dishwasher and opening tap with hose in bucket) You will be surprised how many times a worn tap washer is to blame for low pressure. A stiff turning tap is always a sure sign of problems.... If the unit is a integrated model, make sure that when you close the door it "clicks"...if it does not activate the door switch properly, there could be a flashing light. Sometimes the integrated units "move" deeper into the enclosure, and the door will not close properly to activate the door switch. Oshie

I have a SHU5305us/u12 and my front door lettering got erase. anyone have a picture or a manual that tells me what each button means.


Cycle Interruption

As a safety feature the dishwasher will automatically turn itself off whenever the door is opened. However, if the door is opened quickly while in a wash or rinse cycle some water may splash out of the dishwasher. For this reason it is recommended that the machine always be switched off before opening the door.



To Interrupt a Cycle

1. Press the on/off button to stop operation.

2. Wait at least 10 seconds (or until the water noises stop) before opening the door.



To Resume a Cycle

1. SHU/SHI models, close the door and press the on/off button.

2. SHV models, push the on/off button and close the door.



Changing a Cycle

For Bosch dishwasher models SHI 6800 and 4320, SHU 5300, 5310 and 6800 press the program button of the desired cycle TWICE. For all other Bosch dishwasher models, press the program button of the desired cycle ONCE. The chosen cycle button (or the light above it) becomes illuminated, showing that it has been selected.

* SHU 3030 and SHU 3130 models do not have program lights.



Cancelling a Cycle

Each control panel shows which buttons to simultaneously push to cancel a cycle. Refer to your dishwasher to find the cancel drain buttons on your particular model.



1. Press the indicated buttons at the same time and hold for approximately 3 seconds.

2. When the drain pump noises stop and the LED display or clean light indicate that the end of the cycle has been reached, the dish

washer is reset.

3. Press the on/off button to turn the dishwasher off.

4. The dishwasher is now ready to run a selected cycle. Add more detergent if necessary.

FIRGIDAIRE DISHWASHER FDB1050RES0 WASHING LIGHT BLINKING CONSTANTLY BUT MACHINE WON'T RUN


Thank you for your inquiry, William Garrett!

I understand that the washing light on your Frigidaire dishwasher, FDB1050RES0, continues to blink and will not run. You may need to perform a reset on your dishwasher. In order to do so you would need to disconnect power from your dishwasher for roughly ten minutes. This will help clear out any false error codes or miscommunications within your dishwasher. If resetting your dishwasher does not resolve the issue you may need to have an electrical component replaced and I would recommend seeking professional assistance for that. Hope this is helpful. -Matt

The start light is flashing on my GE dishwasher?


What's the model number? How old is this dishwasher? The new GE dishwashers (less than 3 years old) have a weakness in the door switch/latch assembly, and that would cause the light to flash - it wants you to press Start and close the door, but it's not recognizing that the door is closed.

The cancel light is on because the cycle maybe paused or canceled. The lit red button should say Cancel/Drain. If you already tried to press start and if it won't finish the cycle then try pressing the Cancel/Drain to drain and start over.

I am locked out of cycle with clean light blinking green and cannot find my manual, dishwasher is about 1 year old. Is there a sequence to break this cycle? I turned off power for 60 seconds to no avail.


Hi
I have not seen this model in Australia, but normally if you hold down "Start/Stop" button for 3 to 5 seconds, that should clear the cycle.
Otherwise if you have a Clear button press that for 3-5 seconds.

Washing light is flashing and dishwasher won't start


Hi

First make sure that nothing is blocking the drain pump assembly located inside the lower front panel of the dishwasher. If the issue returns after its cleaned then it means that the control board has gone bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Dishwasher will not start.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes, pauses, and then repeats. When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...


-high temp wash

-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry



Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
