Question about Frigidaire 18 in. FDR252RB Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

My dishwasher shuts itself off

My frigidaire dishwasher will let me select a cycle, then it will run for 3 minutes. It then shuts itself off and all the lights start blinking on it. I can get it to run through the full rinse cycle but that is it. Any other cycle will run for 3 minutes like it is filling with water and then it stops and all the lights start blinking! We have tried unplugging it and checked the drain hose but it still won't work. Please help me

    Ours has a display box that shows how many minutes are left of the cycle and when the door isn't closed all the way a CL comes across the box. That is not happening. The washing, drying, clean, sanitized lights are blinking and it won't run through a cycle. The display isn't showing anything.

The lights will typically blink when the door comes open. It may be that when the washer warms up, parts of it expands and allows the door to open slightly. It may also be that the trigger that registers the door being shut is not being tripped.

Frigidaire FFBD2406NW0A then clean wash drying and 4 hour led lights are blinking


I appreciate your post, friend!

I understand that the clean, wash, and dry buttons on your Frigidaire dishwasher are blinking along with the four LED light. This appears to be a delay start cycle. I would recommend pressing the cancel button. If that does not clear the lights you can perform a reset and to do that you would need to disconnect power from the dishwasher for roughly ten minutes. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Dishwasher starts in any type of cycle, runs for a minute, then shuts off as the lights blink out.


in general your wash motor can cause that. It gets old and you can hear the wash motor making a rumbling noise when it turns on. The increased load with cause a thermal coupler to turn the unit off.

Electrolux PLD2560LCC1 lights flashing


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that you have flashing lights on your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# PLD2560LCC1, and will not start the cycle. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 20-30 minutes. Restore power and try running the cycle again. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your refrigerator status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Turns on, no heat, stopas after about 5 mins and all lights start blinking.


Good Afternoon Amanda,

I understand that your Frigidaire Affinity dryer, model# FAQE7001LW, is not heating as well as only running about 5-7 minutes of the cycle before shutting off. There are a couple things to check.

    1)The gas supply valve is not open. Check to make sure that the gas valve is open.
    2)The dryer does not have enough air supply to support the burner flame. Check with your local gas company to make sure that your dryer is installed correctly.
    3)There is a possibility that your LP gas supply tank is empty or there has been a utility interruption of natural gas. Try refilling or replacing the tank.
    If you are still having trouble with your dryer, I suggest giving it a hard reset, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker for 3-5 minutes. When power is restored, start any cycle. If you are still noticing that there is no heat and it stops 5-7 minutes into the cycle, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician. Hope this is helpful.

    -Best Regards-

Frigidaire FFB240 dishwasher won't stop


Good Morning AA1970,

I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# FFB240, continuing to run unless you shut it off. While I'm not familiar with this particular model number, I suggest that you give the appliance a hard reset. You will do this by shutting the power off at the circuit breaker for at least 20-30 minutes. After restoring power, run the cycle. If it is still continuing to run unless you shut it off, I suggest contacting a local authorized technician for further assistance.

-Best Regards-

Dishwasher malfunction


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Float Switch

The float switch may be hung up and this can cause the dishwasher to be stuck in a cycle. Check the tutorial and the video for checking this part.

Timer / Control

If your dishwasher gets stuck in a cycle first try shutting off the breaker for at least 5 minutes if this does not correct the problem you will need to replace timer/electronic control board.

Blinking lights on frigidaire dishwasher


Hello - Try resetting the dishwasher by disconnecting the power to the unit. This will clear most flashing lights. You can disconnect power by flipping the circuit house breaker off and back on for approximately two minutes. If this does not prove to be successful, contact a professional to move forward accurately. Dishwasher could possibly have a faulty control board or wiring failure.

CONTROL LIGHTS BLINK BUT WONT OPERATE


Anytime the lights blink simultaneously on this model, it is because of a major control fault that has occurred.

unplug the unit or shut the breaker off for 3 minutes. if the lights continue to blink after the 3 minute reset, replace the control/timer module asap.
