    Default Frigidaire dishwasher acting up

    This thing pumps some water in and seems to go through the cycle then pumps water out. However, water never gets pumped through the spray arms. The motor showed no resistance on my meter so I'm thinking maybe the control panel? Also, I can hear the motor running during the cycle but nothing is happening in the dishwasher. I'm just not sure how to check the control panel. The water inlet valve also checks out good. The DW is a Frigidaire Gallery model GLD2250RDB5.

    Hi,

    However, water never gets pumped through the spray arms
    Also, I can hear the motor running during the cycle but nothing is happening in the dishwasher
    This d/w has 2 motors...one for washing only and one for draining only.

    The motor showed no resistance on my meter so I'm thinking maybe the control panel?
    If the motor showed as being open ( no continuity ), that would be more a motor issue. Check for power ( 120 volts AC ) to the motor when it should be running. Power there and no go = new wash motor/pump time.

    The motor had continuity. No resistance whatsoever. My meter never moved. But there was power going to the motor. I just don't know if the control panel is telling the motor when to run.

    If there was power there, the control is telling the motor to run.
