Question about Frigidaire 24 in. FDB635RF Built-in Dishwasher
Hello, the other day a pipe came off from underneath the dishwasher during the wash cycle and the bottom flooded with water spilling onto the floor. I have put the pipe back on with a new hose clip however now there is a loud grinding noise only during the actual wash cycle and not during the fill up or emptying etc. Do you think a pump has been damaged or is it something else? Thanks Roger
Con you check to see if the insulation over the top and sides of the dishwasher was touching the floor and wicked up enough water to get wet? That would reduce the sound dampening characteristics. It is also possible that the hose being shaken off was caused by an issued with something jamming the pump; check the drain grates to see if there is anything you can pull out.

the larger motor housing underneath the unit is what moves the water around to wash, the smaller pump is the drain pump, if you don't hear that running it is likely in need of replacement. check your paper work for warranty, if it's out of warranty try to find a deal online and it's relatively easy to replace

SOURCE: leaking dishwasher
If your dishwasher leaks, check these:Main tub seal
Door gasket or seal
Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.
The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:
1. Lower rack
2. Spray arm
3. Spray arm support
4. Wash/drain impellers
Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.
Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary.
The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve.
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

SOURCE: Noisy drain pump on FDB635RF?
Two questions: 1) Are there filters that need to be cleaned on a routine basis with the FDB635RF? and 2) What causes the scum left behind on glasses and utensils? I use a rinse aid, but doesn't seem to be helping. This is a recent problem.
