I took the sump housing off my dishwasher while checking for clogs as my dishwasher was not draining properly once out I realized I could of checked for clogs without removing it, however it is off and I can not seem to get the gasket to set correctly when I tighten the bolts on the bottom. Is there a trick to this? Please help I have dishwater hands and would like to get the dishwasher in working order. Thanks in advance for your help.
Answer Brian, The sump 154365902 has a "lip" around the circumference of it. The gasket 154246801 has a recess molded in it that fits over the lip. seat the gasket onto the pump housing first. Before you set the pump into the opening in the tub, apply a thin film of liquid dishwasher rinse agent, or water soluble oil around the opening, then set the pump in the opening. When you tighten the retainers, use a "criss cross" pattern to turn and partially tighten the retainers. Once everything it seated and aligned, finish tightenning the retainer screws.
Frigidaire dishwasher FDB1050req0 runs normal for a few minutes and then starts a loud humming noise. I think the main pump works but when it switches over to the top its making a horrible humming.
Answer Becky, You want to check mand make sure you have the proper amount of water in the bottom of the tub. low water level can and does make a motor run "noisy" and with a split wash system, it's even more prevalent. Check and make sure theres nothing holding the float 154767801 up causing it to open early. Start the dishwasher and let it cycle for 3 to 5 minutes, unlatch the door and remove the lower rack, The water level should be slightly above the filter 154252401 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep. If alls OK, you'll need to chrck the filters and the interior pump for deposit build up causing improper water flow and pressure. Thanks
I bought this dishwasher for my son from an individule and it didn't have a drain hose. and i need to see a diagram of how to hook one up. Thanks
Answer Hi James. Since you bought this unit, you probably did not get the installation instructions along with the user guide. The main thing to remember is to drill the 1-3/4" hole in the side wall to get the drain hose into the sink area if you do not already have one. Then after you connect to the drain pump, we will talk about the sink area. Then you need to get 2, - 1/2 " conduit clamps and screws to use on the back inside sink wall. You will form a complete drain loop into the hose and screw/clamp at the highest area behind the sink. Then taught into the sink connection. You will also need 2 clamps part # 5300807813. Thank You.
We replaced the drain pump but our dishwasher is still not draining. Any ideas where to go from here?
Answer Hi Gladys. Remove the drain hose ane put it into a bucket. Check the end of the hose or where the hose attatches to the sink. Make sure these ares are not clogged. Is the unit giving any flashing codes? Do you hear the pump comming on electrically when you press cancell or drain? Thank you.
I just bought this part from you, can you tell me how to install the part properly?
Answer Hello Gladys. Removing the drain pump assembly:
1. Disconnect the washer from the electrical supply
and remove the front panel.
Note: Some water will be left in the hoses and
2. Disconnect the inlet sump from the pump assembly. 3. Disconnect the outlet hose from the pump assembly. 4. Remove the (2) screws, one on each side, holding
the pump housing to the washer base. 4. Unplug the wires from the pump motor 154640201 and lift the
pump assembly out. Hope this helps.
My frigidaire dishwasher is not draining. I checked all lines in and out, it is free and clear and clean. How do I check the pump itself?
Answer Hello Mike. You can test and see if there is power coming to the pump assembly. If so, and the pump does not run, you will need to replace the drain pump assembly 154640201. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter.
