Dishwasher Will Not Start?

September 16, 2021

I have a Frigidaire Gallery dishwasher. 2 years old rarely used. When I run a load it will always flash "Close Door" then begins to fill with water. It does neither but all the lights light. I'm about to order a water inlet valve. However it is rather pricey and I'm not sure if it's going to resolve the problem. Why does it flash, close door?

Have you tried to re-set the machine controls? This can be done by (1) cutting off power at the circuit breaker or (2) holding the Cancel button for 5 seconds. With both methods, wait 5 minutes or so before attempting re-start.

As I understand it, your Frigidaire Gallery dishwasher has an error code CD - Close door
The problem may be with the door latch. A door switch is used to start and stop your dishwasher. It's a safety feature that won't allow water to flow with the door open. With a faulty door switch, dishwasher won't start at all. Inspect the latch/door switch for damage and repair/replace if it won't latch right.

My dishwasher started tripping the breaker soon after it was turned on. It is on it own breaker so I replaced the breaker, but it continued to trip it. I then replaced the receptacle that it plugs into. The receptacle works fine, but now the dishwasher will not turn on at all. Is this fixable or do I need to buy a new dishwasher?

We just had the same problem, we contacted the manufacturer of our dishwasher and spoke with a technician; he referred us to a repair shop of our brand of dishwasher; he did tell my husband that he thought that the computer panel on the front of the dishwasher had failed and he advised us to purchase a new dishwasher. This technician told us that the "life" of a dishwasher is usually 10 years.
