Dishwasher wont start

This answer was rated:

I have a customer who has a Frigidaire dishwasher Model FDB1050RES4 that won't start. I have replaced the mainn control and could see on the od control one of the resistors exploded. Now it still won't start.

Hello. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. I will be helping you with your question today. Do the lights turn on on the control panel?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.


Yes the lights do come and water comes in but won't start.

Is there a hum when the dishwasher should be washing? If you wait does the drain pump kick on? If you press cancel does the dishwasher drain?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

No there isn't a hum.

Yes the dishwasher will drain

Ok you have a bad wash pump and need to replace it. There is a good chance that when the motor went out that it also took out the control board.
