I am irritated with Frigidaire and have decided to name this time delay the "Frigidaire Fake-out."

Problem solved.  In the Power wash and Normal wash modes, I found that there can be a long, 60 second delay between the end of the fill and the start of the wash motor. After the installation of a new control board, when I ran Power wash, the dishwasher seemed to just fill and then quit.   I don't think I ever gave it a full minute when testing the new board to go from fill to wash.  So I thought that even with a new board, the dishwasher wasn't working.

 

I was thrown off because in the Quick Rinse mode, there is no delay between the end of the fill and the start of the wash motor.  So I thought the other modes should not have a delay either.

 

I discovered this long delay kind of by accident.

 

It's my opinion that this delay should have been mentioned on the tech sheet.  I hope this will help someone else.  So, the only thing wrong was that the dishwasher needed a new board.

Am going to the customers on Monday to install a new touchpad.  Will let the world know the results on Tuesday.

I noticed that on the tech sheet, the heater is not called for on any of the wash cycles including the Quick Rinse cycle.  I ordered the new touch pad, will let people know what happens.

BrntToast,

Thanks for looking at the tech sheet and seeing the heater circuit.  The tech sheet "Trouble Shooting Tips" section says that the unit should still run but not heat if the heater element is open, so I didn't test that.  I can test it when I go out there again; do you still think that it could be the reason?

 

Also, the wiring diagram shows an NTC thermistor at P3A connection at the board.  Could this be the the problem, as in a refrigerator or oven where the sensor can shut down the operation?  I can check this to see if it's open or shorted...  Many thanks.
