Q:

Overheating FDB710LCS0 Frigidaire Dishwasher

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The timer is only going to advance once the temperature boost thermostat closes and completes the voltage path to the timer.

The Wash Temperature Boost thermostat should close once it detects 117°F plus or minus 5 degrees. Note; this is with the outer door in place.

The Rinse Temperature Boost thermostat should close once it detects 122°F.

The Hi-Limit Thermostat will open at 200°F and break the heater circuit and shut off the heater in case the timer was to stall or if one the Boost thermostats were to fail and stick closed.

If the heater is working and the wash or rinse boost thermostat is not making a good contact with the tub or inner door liner, the thermostat will not close. If your were to heat the rinse or boost thermostat up with the soldering iron based on the cycle the timer is in and it closes, the timer should begin to advance. It it does, the thermostat is not likely sensing the temperature of the tub because the thermostat may not be sitting up against the tub/inner door panel tight enough so the heat can transfer to the thermostat.

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

Wally: That is correct. Based on your symptom the "Rinse: boost thermostat is not closing. If you by pass the rinse thermostat by disconnecting the two wires from the "Rinse" boost t-stat and then connecting the two wires together, the timer should advance in the rinse cycle. This would also confirm the high temp rinse switch is working too.

Q:

my dishwasher is not filling up with water and was wondering how to test things to find out what I need to replace?

A:

In order for water to enter the tub the timer must provide voltage to the water inlet valve located under the dishwasher. The is also an overfill safety float located inside the dishwasher at the front left corner and if this float is stuck in the up position it will break the voltage supply to the valve and it will not fill with any water. Based on you details the filter screen inside the water inlet valve could be severely restricted if it's getting any water at all.

You should be able to detect if the water valve is getting voltage by placing you hand on the water supply line where it connects to the water inlet valve and feel it vibrating or humming. If you feel it vibrating/humming then the valve is getting voltage and the likely failure is restricted filter screen or there a restriction in the water supply line. NOTE: I do not recommend checking voltage to the valve unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so, otherwise I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dishwasher.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
