Frigidaire Dishwasher FDB768GCC0
Posted 29 November 2010 - 09:12 AM
I was needing help diagnosing problems with my Dishwasher. It is a Frigidaire FDB768GCC0. I have just replaced the upper and lower impellers. Now the dishwasher will run through part of one sequence of a full cycle. For example it only makes it about half way through normal wash before it starts smelling hot. It will then stop. The timer will continue but the dishwasher motor does not turn. If I I switch the washer off and leave it sit for a hour and resume the cycle the motor will work again. Please help me figure out what I may need to do to get it working again. Thanks Mark

I do not know how to check that? I would assume that something is shutting it off due to overheating because the electric motor is hot. Mark
Is the Motor thermal overload shutting OFF from over-heating ?

Yes. When I am near it I can smell it. It also seems very hot as I held my hand near the magnets. The way I first noticed that it was so hot was that I did not tighten the impellers down tight enough and a water was dripping slowly down. I could hear it hit the motor. I am not sure but it may be my fault that it is not working. I found the drip as I was checking the first tub of water to make sure everything was ok. Thanks for your reply's. I am very grateful.
