I have a frigidaire Model # FDB750RCS0. They heating element does not function and  the control dial sticks in 2 different places so it will run all day if I am not home.  I don't know the year of this unit ( at least 5 years old). Is this a cheap easy fix or should I just buy a new dishwasher?

The timer may be sticking because of the No Heat problem.

Where is it sticking and in which cycle?

Sticks during the wash cycle, then again just before the drying cycle begins.

Test the fuse as in the video in the above link, order replacement there if the fuse is open

NEVER EVER run any of your appliances when you are not home.  The only appliance that should be on when you aren't home is your refrigerator.  You could come back to a flooded house or you might come home to find you  don't have a house  anymore cause it went up in flames.

"Should I repair my old appliance or buy a new one?"   An age old question. However, with many of these new appliances, the current question is "should I repair my old appliance or buy a new one and repair it?"

Appliantology is, however appliances are not, an exact science for I know there are a few refrigerators that actually hate me.

The simplest explanation is most likely the correct and least expensive one, unless it's your compressor or motherboard" Occam as an appliantologist

"When you have eliminated all the impossible, whatever remains, however implausible, must be the logic truth; unless it's your compressor or motherboard." Mr. Spock as an appliantologist

Does the heating element get hot if you advance the timer to dry (yeah -- I know you said heating element does not function, just double checking :thumbsup: )? This thing has "booster" thermostats that stall the timer until they sense the water is hot. If the heater and "Hi-Limit" thermostat check OK, then I would suspect these "booster" thermostats (not pictured of parts diagram).

Most likely going to be the hi-limit safety t-stat in the left rear corner as Kdog linked to.  Seems to be a somewhat common problem on these Frikadaire dishwashers.

 

All the ones I've seen fail has been because of the rivet that holds the terminal to the t-stat itself being loose and causing the connectors to over heat thus causing the t-stat to fail.   Be sure to replace the wiring and connector also if they look at all burnt/overheated.

In reply to Chat in RI ( guessing that is the "Ocean State" ) the heating element does not warm up when advancing to the drying cycle. I will check the heating element and the hi limit T stat and go from there.

 

Hoping K dog is correct.

As Willie mentioned, it is quite common
