Washer goes through cycle but does not wash. It does fill an drain. Tried open and closing door several times it turned on for about 5 seconds, nothing else.
Without the model number we can not be accurate on our answer but it sounds like the circulation motor may be bad but you would want to test to make sure that the motor is getting power from the control board.
ok i got one for you, my frigidaire dishwasher will go through every cycle except for the wash, it fills with water and it will drain but the wash cycle does nothing i removed the pump motor and tested it by attaching power to it and it works. as i said all cycles work except for the wash cycle what should my next step be/
You will want to test to see if the wash motor is getting power from the main control board when it is in a wash cycle. If you do this test from the control board then it will tell you whether the board is good or if maybe the wiring could be the issue. If there is power coming from the board but not getting to the pump then the wiring may be broken.
Our dishwasher is function well beside the fact that is doesn't shoot water through the blades to clean the dishes. When I turn it on, I hear the water running, then nothing for about 30 min. I want to make sure what it is exactly that I need to replace. I'm guessing the motor?
If you are using the high temp wash for your unit then you will want to check to make sure that the heating circuit is operational. Also check the motor when it is supposed to be washing to make sure that there is 120 vac getting to the motor. It sounds like the motor could be the issue but you will want to check to make sure that it is getting power. If there is no power to the motor then either the wiring of the unit from the control board to the motor or the control board itself is faulty.
