Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The CLEAN light will come on at end of cycle and remain on until door is opened. Based on your symptom it sounds like a problem with the door switch. The door switch with the Black wires must open and break the circuit when the door is opened or the "Clean" light will not turn off. By disconnecting the power supply mimic what the door switch should do. The sanitized cycle happens and is completed before it reaches the dry cycle and before the "Clean" light will come on.

Sanitize Option: To sanitize your dishes and glassware, select the SANITIZE option. When selected, the light above the pad wilt come on and remain on until end of cycle. The water temperature in the final rinse will be raised to 155�F (68�C) and will maintain that temperature for 9 minutes. This option is available in POTS & PANS, NORMAL and ECONO WASH cycles. Only these sanitization cycles have been designed to meet NSF requirements. The cycle time will be extended until the proper water temperature is reached. Washing action will continue during the water heating delay. For best results, the incoming water temperature should be at least 120�F (49�C). The sanitize criteria may not be satisfied if there is an interruption of the cycle, power failure or if the incoming water temperature is below 120�F. To turn off the SANITIZE option; press the pad a second time. The light above the pad wilt turn off. When the SANITIZE option is selected, the SANITIZED light will glow when the SANITIZE cycle is finished. If the dishwasher did not properly sanitize the dishes, the light will not come on. This can happen if the cycle is interrupted. The light will remain on until the door is opened.

So, based on you symptom, I suspect a faulty door switch or door latch assembly. It is not likely a control board issue, just that the door switch with the black wires is not opening and breaking the power supply from the control.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Thank you for submitting your question.

If the dishwasher is not filling, the problem could be a faulty timer, water valve, of float switch. To check the water valve and the float switch the lower access panel has to be removed. Two or four screws should attach it. Before reaching under the dishwasher, I recommend turning the power off. Then locate the float switch it should have a brown and a brown/white wires attached to it. Remove the wires and ohm the terminals of the switch. You should get a reading of closed. If the reading is closed, check the float inside of the dishwasher. I have seen food get caught under them. If the float is fine the float switch need to be replaced.

If you get a closed reading on the float switch, reconnect the wires and locate the water valve. Once you have found the water valve, remove the wires and ohm the terminals. The reading should be between 700 and 1100 ohms. If you get an ol or open reading, the water valve needs to be replaced. If the valve ohms out within specs, reconnect the wires. The problem is either a timer or stuck valve.

To determine if the problem is either a timer or stuck valve you will need to do a live voltage check. Only do the following check if you know how to safely check live voltage. Turn the power back on to the dishwasher and start a cycle. Then check the voltage to the water valve. You should have 120 volts ac to the valve. If you do not have the voltage, the timer is the problem. If you do have the voltage, the water valve is the problem. I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance by replying below.

Hello I have a Model #FDB1250REC2 Frigidaire Dishwasher, and it runs then goes to clean and then gets stuck there. It does not proceed to sanitize cycle. I have to unplug and reset for it to wash again. Can you please tell me what the issue may be. From some blogs I have gotten a bad timer or control panel I just want to narrow down so I can purchase the part for my dad to install.
