Frigidaire dishwasher will not start
« on: June 01, 2011, 11:00:38 AM »
My frigidaire dishwasher (FDB1050RES2) has quit working.  I've never had any problems with it before.  When I push the start button, it doesn' start.  The cleaning light will light up solid green as if it were working but nothing happens.  I've tried turning off the circuit breaker to it and allowed it to stay off for approx. 30 mins and turned it back on but nothing.  I've double checked the water which is on.  I've messed with the overfill protector and it moves fine.  Someone please help!?!?!?  Thank you!

Also, I took off the lower spray arm and screen filter thing and there is a little bit of water sitting down there if that tells you anything.  Someone please help.

Fills? If it does it may be the motor. If you hit cancel will it drain?

No it doesn't fill or do anything.  I hit start and the cleaning light will light up but it does absolutely nothing.  I've read some posts where others were having problems with their door not latching all the way so I played with that and had no luck.  I also tried to run it on the other cycles (I typically do normal wash) but nothing works.
