    Question Frigidaire Dishwasher fdb2110lcs0

    Hello people

    I am a newb to this forum and I don't have much to offer to others on repair but I am at my wits end to figure out my Frigidaire dishwasher.

    Earlier this week I caught it melting down the washer sprayer in the bottom. At first I thought the metal shields were worn and failed and I simply ordered another, cleaned the basin out, and reinstalled.

    I ran the next load and noticed the lights on the board were still blinking when ran and it seemed to be running excessively long.

    Today I ran the cut the power for 30 mins diagnostic and it checked out so I ran another load. At first the lights were solid but after 75 mins the lights had started blinking again and per the manual the load should have been done. So I opened the door and left the house to run errands and returned and closed the door and it continued running. The washer lights were solid when restarted and now are blinking once again. I have no idea what it is. Could it be a temp. sensor?

    Hi,

    The spray arm falling off onto the heating element and your later on issue don't seem to be related.
    I am not 100% sure of what your second issue is....exactly!?

    The lights are blinking?...cycle is too long?...there isn't a temp sensor.

    I think the heat dry went nuts and melted the plastic around the metal shields. At first I thought it was wear on the sprayer arm. I replaced the sprayer arm and ran the washer again and it seemed to run awfully long and the heat seemed excessively high. Also, I am not sure if this is related, the lights on the dishwashwer would blink while running, is that normal? I hadn't noticed in the past.

    I ran the diagnostic via the cut the power for 30 mins and hit the 2 solid lights on board Hi-heat and the other and then start. It ran through the diagnostic without a flaw. I I then ran another load of dirty dishes with NO heat dry. The manual said a normal wash would take 75 mins it took about 1 hour longer.

    My questions: Is it normal for the lights to blink during wash, the melting washer arm is an indication of a bad thermomenter, and finally did the diagnostic fix it?

    Jeff, thank you for the response.

    I watched and listened to the dishwasher today as It ran. For 1hr and 19mins it ran perfectly, you could hear the different stages and all the lights were solid during that part of the run. When the washer stopped washing I went to check it and the selections I had made were blinking, Normal wash, Washing, noheat dry. steam was rolling out of the vent and I opened the door for fear of melting. The heating element was sizzling hot when I splashed a bit of water on it. I didn't think it was right. I then canceled, and ran rinse and hold.

    ANY insight would be great.

    thank you

    Too hot would be a control issue.....there is a thermostat that will open to shut off the heating element, but if the element shouldn't be in in the first place the control is the suspect.....and the control for this d/w keeps coming back as NLA ( No Longer Available ).

    That is stinks, thank you Jeff. Do you think if I monitor it and turn it off when the lights blink that I will be alright?
    The "control" is the board where the buttons are? I know i can buy the thermostats on reapair site and amazon. The control panel was more expensive than what the washer is worth.

    No, not a good idea.

    Behind the buttons ( #8 ), the control is #3.

    With the control board being NLA, kinda sounds like a new d/w time soon.
