Question about Frigidaire 24 in. PLD2850 Built-in Dishwasher
The dishwasher was full of water and leaked onto the floor. Bottom strainer cover was removed, cleaned out, and sprayer rotated, lines checked (all seemed clear). Water drained and washer worked for a month or two. Now the water is sitting in the bottom of the washer (no leaking onto floor). Water will drain once the cover is removed and the sprayer rotated. No clogs or debris can be found. Suggestions would be much appreciated. I have been extremely dissatisfied with this dishwasher...the other issues are minor in comparison to the above but here's a list of the minor things: 1) top rack regularly comes off track on back left side (plastic end seems to pop open...easy to fix but a pain when the top rack is loaded), 2) top rack glasses always have grit on the outside and sometimes the inside of the glasses, 3) top sprayer continually falls off, 4) rinse aid dispenser seems to leak at times...we go through rinse aid a lot, 5) top rack of dishes doesn't dry.
So, as you can see, from the moment we moved into this house (1 1/2 yrs. old at the time), I really never had a good experience with this dishwasher...but at least it cleaned the majority of the dishes. Now...it's just taking up space and I'm handwashing everything. Is this just a bad dishwasher that needs replaced or can it be redeemed?
Sure its redeemable if you have the time and money. If I understand you correctly when you move the lowewr spray arm the water drains out? If this is the case then more than likely its a pump motor or solenoid. Reason I say this is on the bottom of the spray arm is a impeller and under that is filter and then pump impeller that drains the water. If its not draining but will by hand then its your pump motor or solenoid. When you start the washer then press cancel/drain do you hear anything? Maybe a humming sound. One more thing could be a thermal fuse for the motor. These are usually not resetable its a one time fuse if it blows you have o buy another one.Hope this helps

Tips for a great answer:
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.
Shut off the power to the dishwasher. Remove the strainer under the bottom spray arm. You will need to unscrew the cap, remove arm and clips that hold strainer. Clean well with a brush, soap and water, then replace it.
