I have a Fridgeaire fdb658rac1. When it reaches the Rinse cycle, it gets stuck at this point and will not advance. When I turn the knob to the Dry cycle, the dishwaher completes the cycle. It does appear to operate normally in advance of the Rinse cycle..ie when initiated Noraml wash it advances at a normal pace up to the Rinse and then gets stuck as noted above. Is this the Timer for certain ? Is there anyway that I can troubleshoot to determine the exact cause ?

Thx in advance

may be a problem with the Heater, or Thermostats.
Is there "hot steam" when the Door is opened after a completed Wash Cycle ?

Try a Wash Cycle with the Hi-Temp Wash OFF and the Sanitize OFF

Tried this with the Try a Wash Cycle with the Hi-Temp Wash OFF and the Sanitize OFF and the cycle did complete itself.

Would this mean that I have a faulty thermostat ?

When the dry cycle ran, there was steam coming out of the vent on the front of the control panel

If you have a meter to test them,
the bad one may be "open" at room temperature

Ok, I note that the wiring diagram highlights the location of the thermostat...but not the hi-limit thermostat. IS the hi-limit thermostat the same as the hi-temp wash thermostat.

The parts manual notes the following, in addition toi the basic thermostat:

154227807 Thermostat,temp hotrinse
154227808 Thermostat,temp boost

Do you haved a drawing that notes the location of these additional thermostats so that I can check them as well

thx in advance

Thx for the diagram, the hi limit theromstat is not located on the drawing. I suspect that this would be in the vicinity of the heating element and close to the location of the thermostat. I am going to check to see if there are any char marks that might indicate a malfunction. I do not have an ohmeter to test the circut

Those don't usually show any obvious failure other than continuity, some are resettable (have red button) -
Try running it in dry part of the cycle with the heated dry selected and see if the element heats up
