This is very likely due to a bad main electronic control board but the only way to know for sure is to do some electrical testing with a volt/ohm meter and the wiring diagram located within the appliance. If possible use the meter and the wiring diagram to check input/output voltages looking for discrepancies between the diagram and the actual meter readings.

Hi Derek if its only been used about as you say ten times it will stil be under gaurantee,just call the supplier and have them solve the problem for you mate it sounds as if the program selector is faulty as it is all eletronic programming and could even be a faulty circuit board.
hope this helps

No solution, just a big thanks about that tip on holding down that 'Heat-Dry' button. Worked like a charm.

Is there a reset button on frigidaire dishwasher model fdb710lcb0


Mate im in Australia and don't know if the Frigidaite is the same as the Electrolux/Westinghouse but you can try this I posted a day ago:
On the Westinghouse and Electrolux dishwashers to reset a program that it defaults too you start the program and once initialised then press and hold the program button for about 3-5 secs. The panel will beep and all the lights will come on and not flash. From there on using the program button you select the wash cycle you want

Model ESL 499. Why doesn't it start?


You have activated the delayed start function. Please read following instruction from user manual.

8. Delayed Start button

Allows the start of the programme to be delayed by a minimum of 1 hour, up to 9 hours. How to set the delayed start When the button is pressed, the number appears in the display (4). Press the button again to select the number of hours by which you wish to delay the programme start, up to a maximum of 9. E.g.: if you have selected number , the wash programme will start in 2 hours' time. To cancel the delayed start set, press the button until the number appears. Close the dishwasher door to start the countdown: a long audible signal (about one second) informs you that the function is active. If you open the door again you will see, in the display (4), how long there is to go (in hours) before the programme starts. A flashing dot in the digital display means that the delayed start function has been activated. Opening the door has no effect on a countdown which has already been started. If, during the countdown, you wish to see the programme number selected in the display, press the Programme Selector button (5). If, after having started the countdown by closing the dishwasher door, you wish to cancel the delayed start, press button (9) (Cancel) for about 2 seconds until the short «instruction accepted «signal is heard».

Start button won't work, but delay does


have you accidently turned on a safety feature stopping the machine from starting? or is the door latches closed fully, if opened slightly could be preventing the machine from starting. or maybe its just a faulty start button.

  1. To cancel the delay.press the delay pad again when the delay is counting down. The indicator light will go out and the cycle will start or resume immediately.
  2. To cancel the delay and the cycle, press Start/cancel once to drain and turn-off the dishwasher.
  3. Press Start/cancel twice to turn-off the dishwasher without draining.

Which dishwashere auto resume wash cycle when door is closed?


All the tall tub dishwashers made by Whirlpool (inc. Kenmore and Kithcenaid) must have the start button pressed after adding a dish. If the start button control light is blinking, you must press start. On those models with buttons on the top of the door you must, in addition, close the door within aprox 5 seconds after pushing start. Hope this helps. Ken
