Hi

Ive have a frigidaire dishwasher FPHD2491kfo with flashing ER code no other code after - just ER.  other controls are flashing too (normal wash, add rinse aid (which I did). delay start and air dry) I can press other wash settings, and they just illuminate and go back to normal wash.  I have also taken door apart and checked ribbon cables that look fine -- any ideas

thanks

Provided the door switches check good and there is no following fault code displayed after "ER" it usually means a stuck key on the touch control.  In most cases the "ER" code is caused by the top membrane switch.  A quick way to test which membrane switch is bad:

 

With the "ER" fault code displayed, remove the top membrane ribbon from the control and then press the Start/Cancel pad.  In 5-10 seconds the "ER" code should clear and the display should be blank at this time.  Press the Start/Cancel pad once more, this will restart the previously selected cycle.  If the "ER" code does not clear or the unit does not start, replace the front membrane switch.

On your model it's the touch control on the top of the door.  The switch membrane is part of the console P/N 5304475578.

Sorry for my confusion!  Im not sure what to do now!! - there's a lot of wires and "ribbons" in there!  I disconnected the green ribbon with the black connector labeled 46/09 and nothing happened with the "ER" code- does this mean I need the front membrane switch?
