I have a frididaire 4300 series dishwasher, when it finishes the cycle it still leaves water in the bottom of the tub right to the level of the heating element.
Answer Hello David. It sounds like the drain hose is clogged or the pump is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit. Check the hose first. If it is clear, then see if there is power to the pump. If there is power, and it does not drain, replace the pump on the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
My dishwasher will not come on. It is getting power to the unit but the display will not come on. Is there a doorwsitch assy that could be faulty causing the issue?
Answer Hello Shane. No, it sounds like the control board is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit. The switches will not prevent the control panel from coming on and lighting up.
I changed the water inlet switch, float valve and the latch assembly. The lights come on but there isn't anything else that happens, no water although the supply line to the machine is wide open. I hardly use the machine and it's just four years old.
Answer Hello Steve,
You will want to turn dishwasher on and check for power going to the water valve. At start up there should be 120vac going to water valve. If there is 120 vac and there is no water flowing then you need to replace water valve. If there is not 120 vac then you will need to check on the control board to see if you are getting 120 vac out of board to the pump. You will Check P2 pin 11 to neutral for 120 vac. If no power then the control board is bad. If there is power but none getting to valve you will need to check the wiring.
My dishwasher seems as though it is going through its cycle. You can hear the water coming in and you can hear it click through each cycle, but on the wash part of it, which is normally the loudest part of the cycle, you can't hear the water being circulated. The detergent door opens but it is just streaming down the front of the door and not being distributed in to the tub. Can you give me any idea what the problem is. Thanks!
Answer Hello Bandy,
If you can hear the motor running, you need to check the filters and the spray arms for clogs. If it isn't making any motor noise during this time and voltage is being supplied to the motor, the motor 154844301 has failed and needs to be replaced. Of course, you should first check the water level when the unit has finished filling. If the water level is low, (it should be within about half an inch below the heating element), either the water valve 154637401 has failed or the water level float is stuck in the up position.
Hi Dave My dishwasher turns on but water is not coming into the unit at all. What part does this sound like? thanks
Answer Vicki, First check the water level float, 154767801 in the front left corner of the tub bottom, make sure theres nothing blocking it and if you raise and lower the assembly, you should hear a " click" noise, from the bottom of the tub. If alls OK, then check or replace the water fill valve 154476102.
