Customer Question

We have a Frigidaire dishwasher, 4300 series. Last week about half way through the cycle it started squealing. I read the manual but it didn't help. What could the problem be?

This is likely very easily solved. Pour about 1 cup of vegetable oil in the tub and run a cycle (no dishes). The oil will permeate the seals and moving parts and you should have no other issues with it squealing. As long as you use a full cycle wash (no need for heat dry), the oil will be washed away at cycle end.

Please let me know if you have additional questions or need clarification. There is no additional charge for any follow up help!
