Ongoing problem with Frigidaire Dishwasher FDB1050REC.

Let see if I can help!

If the light stays lit it would mean that the latch switch is defective and is not opening (electrically) when the door latch is cycled. When you go through the power off circuit breaker it performs the same function as if the latch switch was cycled hence the machine will operate until the next time the end of cycle clean light appears.

During your earlier repairs the inner panel of the door is removed and it is possible the switch operation was interfered with either allowing it to work or disabling its operation.

When the door latch is cycled at end of cycle the clean light should go out.

Check switch operation, installation and adjust or replace switch if defective.

If the washer is currently not working and you had smelled burning you need to check the following.:
  • Electrical connections to the control board, pump and heater. After the maintenance of removing the connectors may had been dirty and do to a high resistance connection overheated and failed.
  • Check the control board for PC track failure where the copper traces and connections have failed. Replace control board
  • The motor for a shorted winding. Replace pump motor.
These machines are very good and I would repair.

Hope this helps?

Dishwasher will not start

  • Door latch.
    Make sure door is closed and properly latched.
  • Delay start option.
    If delay start option is available, has it been set and is unit still in time delay before starting.
  • Cycle setting.
    Check to see if cycle is set correctly (refer to Operating Instructions in the "Use & Care Manual").

    Washer starts and fills up a little then pauses

    Good Morning Candiss - Often this happens because the washer door is not securely latched or the cycle has been interrupted. Try pressing "PAUSE/CANCEL" or "START/PAUSE" once to resume cycle. If the issue persists, try reprogramming the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and then turn the unit back on. If issue persists, then more than likely the unit has a faulty door latch, a communication error with the control board, or a potential wiring failure. I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose the washer to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

    F5e1 error code

    The F5 E1 error message indicates the latch motor was unable to lock the door. When the self clean cycle is started, the control board will turn on the latch motor which is mounted on the rear of this range. The motor is connected to a cam that transfers the motors motion to a rod that runs under the cooktop. This rod connects to the actual latch mounted behind the oven door. The control board will then monitor a position switch that is actuated by the latch motor cam. As the motor rotates, the latch will engage the door locking it in place just as the cam contacts the switch button. When the switch contacts close, the control turns the latch motor off and starts the cleaning cycle.

    When diagnosing this failure, the error code gives us a good starting point to begin our trouble shooting. I removed the rear panel and started a clean cycle. Once the start button was pressed, the latch motor began to rotate, but didn't stop at the locked position. It continued to rotate three times and then displayed the error. I unplugged the range from the wall and using my meter, did a continuity check of the latch position switch (the one on the right). The switch was reading as an open circuit in standby and when I actuated the switch which tells me the switch has failed. The second switch on the latch assembly, by the way, is to turn the oven light off during the self cleaning cycle to protect the bulb. That way, if you leave the light switch on the control panel turned to the on position, that second switch will turn it back off. Good to know if you can't figure out why the oven light won't turn on.

    With the failure down to the latch assembly, I checked the range parts to see if the switch came as a separate piece, but it looks like it's an entire assembly, and not individual parts. I removed the old latch after removing the two screws and six wires, then installed the new latchshow?id=y6f3ez5blva&bids=92089.709229668&type=10&subid=. Once all the wires were back connected to the proper terminals, I put the rear panel back on and plugged the range back into the outlet. Started a self clean cycle, but this time I heard the motor make one revolution and stop. The cycle started for the customer and a few hours later, I am sure the oven was nice and clean.

    Upper oven turn on and off then puts f9

    F9 indicates a problem with the door latch circuit. Holding the door in the open position, push in the door switch until the cavity light goes off. Put the upper oven in the clean cycle and watch to see if the door latch cycles.

    If the door latch mechanism is working correctly, the latch should stop in the closed position (the door will not shut all the way now). If the door latch does not even move and the F9 error appears, which is highly likely, you definitely have a problem with the latch circuit. (If the door latch did cycle to the closed position, cancel the self-clean mode to cycle the latch back to the open position.)

    First, check that there are no loose wires on the door latch switches. Also check that none of the wires are pinched between the latch mechanism and the Oven Control Unit. Repair any wires that may be damaged and reconnect any connections that maybe loose. If you have just made any repairs, try putting the oven into bake mode with the door closed and test.

    If there was no wiring that needed repaired and all connections looked good, test each of the door switches to be operating properly. Disconnect the wires from one switch at a time and perform a continuity test on the switch. In the open position your meter should read "OL", in the closed position it should emit a tone, or read "0.0". If either switch fails this test, replace the switch and test your oven again.

    If none of the above conditions exist, the Oven Control is not reading input from the door latch sensor and needs to be replaced.

    My clean light is service to check heater?

    f the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses, then repeats...

    When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it will stop working and lock the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water. Check the element for damage (burnt/shorted).

    To clear the flashing light 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

    ...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cycle finish (1-2 minutes).
    You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

    If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (ie. element, thermostat or wiring). It rarely happens but it could also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed (slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door when you close it).

    then cancel..... wait until 2 minute cycle is done. open and close the door and make sure it is closed.

    Then run another cycle. saw this on another post and it worked for me. They said that if it did not reset then either the latch has a bad connection or the heater for the water is bad.. it must register that the door is closed in order to actually start the heater for the water. I hope this helps you as well as it helped me.

    Has a household fuse blown or has a circuit breaker tripped?
    There may be 2 household fuses or circuit breakers for the dryer. Make sure both fuses are intact and tight, or that both circuit breakers have not tripped. Replace the fuse(s) or reset the circuit breaker(s). If the problem continues, call an electrician.
    Is the correct power supply available? (Electric dryers only)
    Electric dryers require 240-volt power supply. Check with a qualified electrician.
    Is the dryer door firmly closed?
    Your dryer door may not be fully closed. It may look shut, but may not be latched. Push on the door to engage the latch or latches. Some models have an upper and lower latch. Both latches must be secure for the dryer to run.
    Was the Start, Push to Start or Hold to Start button firmly pressed?
    Large loads may require the Start, Push to Start, or Hold to Start button to be pressed and held for two to five seconds.
    Is the Cycle Control knob set on a Sensor Dry or Timed Dry cycle? (on some models)
    The Cycle Control knob must be set in a Automatic Dry or AccudryTM or Timed Dry cycle. The dryer will not start if set on the Wrinkle ShieldTM option.
    Is Controls Locked status light on? (on some models)
    Press and hold the Cycle Signal button for three seconds. This will turn off the Controls Locked feature.
    Did you recently install a power supply cord on the dryer? (Electric dryers only)
    The power supply cord may be incorrectly installed. If the power cord is incorrectly installed, the dryer may not start or heat. Review the Installation Instructions to check that the power supply cord is properly installed.
