    Default Electrolux dishwasher

    I have a Frigidaire Professional dishwasher, model no. FPHD2491KF0. The lights on the panel work. When you set it and close the door, it will fill and then do nothing. After a few minutes, it drains the water and refills again. It just won't start washing. If you cancel the wash and close the door, it will empty the water. The day it stopped working, it was flashing PF when we woke up that morning. I am looking for instructions on how to figure out what I need to replace. Thanks!

    Hi,

    The lights on the panel work. When you set it and close the door, it will fill and then do nothing. After a few minutes, it drains the water and refills again.
    This unit has 2 motors. One for draining only and one for washing only. The washing one doesn't sounds like it is running at all. First step is to start a normal cycle and when the wash motor should be running, is it getting power ( 120 volts AC ) or not to the black and white wires. Power there and no go = new motor time. No power there and the control is the suspect.

    You have to be patient with me because electricity isn't my thing. I put the red lead of the multimeter to the pink side wire and the black to the white side wire in the plug from the control board. I get a reading of 3.4 volts when the dishwasher is not running and I get the same reading when it gets to the wash cycle. Am I testing for power to the motor correctly? It definitely isn't reading 120v.

    Go to the male-female motor plug ( see pic above ) and test across the black and white wires. Red lead of your meter to the white and black lead from your meter to the black. Test there.

    I'm not sure I understand. Don't I need to check the plug from the dishwasher that plugs into the motor to see if power is coming to the motor as it cycles? The plug from the control board that the motor black and white wires plug into has a pink and a white wire. The white one plugs into the black wire side of the plug on the motor. Is there a way to test the resistance of the motor to see if it's bad?

    We don't have the wire diagram so we would not know what colour the wires are that plug into the motor plug....if you are checking at the male-female plug at the motor, that is correct
    No power there when the motor is suppose to be running would more indicate baord issue.
    The motor con be ohmed for continuity, but won't tell you much.
