Spots on dishes

It depends on the kind of spots.
Hard water spots are just the result of minerals that were left behind when the water evaporated.
Food spots can be the result of food that was allowed to dry before putting the dishes in the dishwasher.
In general, a water softener can be quite helpful in reducing hard water spots, and can also help the dishwasher perform better.
Note too that recent changes in the formulation of dishwashing products has been a problem for people who do not have water softeners. Government mandates have recently restricted addition of phosphates in dishwashing products in many states. Phosphates were quite beneficial to the dishwashing process.
A water softener may be your best answer.

I have a frigidaire fgbd2438pbbb dishwasher that runs thru the wash cycle then stops and the air dry and high temp light flash. whats wrong?

Based on the symptoms you described, it's likely that there is an issue with the heating element or thermostat in your Frigidaire dishwasher. Here are some troubleshooting steps you can try:
  1. Check the heating element: The heating element is responsible for heating the water during the wash cycle and drying the dishes at the end of the cycle. If the element is faulty, the dishwasher may stop mid-cycle and display the flashing lights you described. Use a multimeter to test the continuity of the heating element. If there is no continuity, the heating element needs to be replaced.
  2. Check the thermostat: The thermostat is a safety device that prevents the dishwasher from overheating. If the thermostat is faulty, it may shut off the heating element prematurely, causing the dishwasher to stop mid-cycle. Test the thermostat using a multimeter. If it's not functioning properly, it needs to be replaced.
  3. Check the control board: If the heating element and thermostat are functioning properly, there may be an issue with the dishwasher's control board. A faulty control board can cause various issues, including the flashing lights you described. If this is the case, you may need to replace the control board.
If you're not comfortable performing these troubleshooting steps yourself, it's best to contact a qualified technician to diagnose and repair the issue.

Frigidaire Model FGID2466QF2A - Middle Spray arm is hitting larger dishes and may seem a bit wobbly. How do I move to provide clearance?

They should not wobble a lot. They have to be able to spin, but should not have a lot of lateral movement. See if you can remove the spray arm and clean out all the spray jets. If some are blocked at one side it causes the arm to not spin true and flat. It spin with one side high and one side low. The other problem may be incorrect loading of dishes. https://www.frigidaireapplianceparts.com/Shop-For-Parts/a9b2d2144302/Model-FGID2466QF2A-Frigidaire-Dishwasher-Parts ..

Lower spray arm dislodged during wash cycle

Hello Megan Quintas, I have had the bottoms of the Frigidaire DISHWASHER rotted out AND their center-shaft NEVER LOST IT'S vertical alignment... So my personal opinion... You are good once you replace your defective spray arm.. Put your model+make+spray+arm or better yet the ORIGINAL PART NUMBER to get three estimates...

Cannot be answered with the information provided. Need the serial number from the manufacturer's plate, which will probably tell you the year of manufacture. Here is a link to Frigidaire: https://www.frigidaire.com/Owner-Center/Product-Support--Manuals/?productCode=FFBD2406NB

Frigidaire dishwasher stops after about 40 minutes. The latch to dispense the detergent does not open and the the ER code appears.

Error Code: ER

The Problem: There is a membrane switch failure, meaning one of the keys is throwing the wrong signal. This error can also be caused by a stuck key or a key pressed for longer than one minute. The Fix: Check the keys on the control panel and the wiring between the keypad and main control board. If you cannot identify and fix the issue, replace the keypad. If the error persists, replacing the main control board should fix the issue.

My Frigidaire dishwasher has recently started to act up. It starts the wash cycle but doesn't finish it.

Sounds just like my Whirlpool dishwasher. If you have the documentation that came with it look through it for a "reset" method to re-calibrate the dirt sensor in the unit. If you don't have the owners manual try to "Google" an owners manual or a "technicians" manual to find a reset or a re-calibrate procedure. Mine consisted of pressing certain control buttons at the same time, after which the unit ran through a calibration cycle that took about as long as a normal wash, and it has worked great ever since.

Hi temp/heat dry lights flashing on a frigidaire dishwasher

Please read!! This happened to us and we paid money to have repair men come look and they didn't solve the problem. Your door latch is being caught on the bottom of your counter top. Pull your dishwasher out a half an inch and try again. It fixed our problem when we had this happen!

Error Message 'Er' on frigidaire dishwasher

I had the same problem. I pressed the "Start Cancel" button, kept it down, then pressed "Rinse Only" button. The display then went clear. I pressed "Start Cancel" again, then "83" showed up on the display. I let it run its cycle, then it corrected itself. A little scary, but it worked. This answer board is great!

Frigidaire dishwasher sanitize cycle

A High Limit Thermostat is what it says. If the temperature goes over limit, it cuts power to the element. The temperature itself is controlled by an electronic sensor called a thermistor, or a standard 'thermostat'. Try a reset control board first. https://www.google.com/search?q=Frigidaire+dishwasher+Model+FDB1500LFC0+reset How to enter Diagnostics Mode https://www.google.com/search?q=Frigidaire+dishwasher+Model+FDB1500LFC0+run+diagnostics ..

Frigidaire FGID2466QF7A dishwasher touchpad non-responsive

I called Frigidaire with these codes. They said it indicates a power failure happened (during a wash cycle, I suppose) and to do a hard reset. A hard reset is turning off the breaker for 30+ minutes and then flipping the breaker back on. This kind of worked, but simultaneous to the error codes, the push/pull latch on my dishwasher got set to the closed position while the door was open, so the door would not latch. I feel that this was the initial problem that caused these codes. So in my case, I had to manually rotate the latch open with bent piece of wire, to get it into the correct position first. Then the hard reset seemed fix the error codes. I was able to start a wash. It's running now.
