Question and Answers

Q:

Why won't our Frigidaire Precision Direct dishwasher start?

A:

The power outage could have damaged the electronic control board (part 154757002) in the console. The control panel (part 154639209) could also have been damaged. A problem with the door switch (unrelated to the power outage) could also prevent the dishwasher from starting. I recommend that you have a service technician examine the dishwasher and replace the failed components to repair this failure. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .

If you want to attempt a do-it-yourself repair, reply with additional details and we will assist you further. The parts are not that expensive for this dishwasher. We may be able to figure out how to fix it through some basic technical troubleshooting steps.

Check that float in the bottom of the tub to make sure that it is not stuck in the "up" position. This would prevent the dishwasher from filling. Check to see if any of the status lights flash after you press the start button. The image below shows some of the codes that you may see. If you do not see any codes, then I recommend that you shut off the house circuit breaker for the dishwasher and access the door latch assembly as shown in the second image. The wiring diagram is shown in the third image. I provided a video that shows how to test switches using a volt/ohm meter in the link below this response. I recommend that you check the door switches. In the closed position, the switches should measure continuity. If one of the switches (or both) is bad, then this could be preventing your dishwasher from starting. If the door switches are okay, I recommend that you check the wiring connection between the control panel and the control board. If that wiring connection is okay, then you will probably need to replace that electronic control board (part 154757002). I provided a link for the Sears PartsDirect.com website below the response. These tips should help you get started with this repair (or maybe even complete it). Reply with additional details based on these steps if you need more help. NOTE: Be sure that you have the breaker shut off for the dishwasher before accessing internal components.
