FDB4050LHS1 Motor Problems
We purchased this Model dishwasher in December 2008, based on it being super-quiet. We paid nearly double what we planned on, just for the convenience. 2 months after purchasing, the motor started making a sound like a baseball card in a bicycle's spokes during the wash. We called, and a company came out to look at it. 10 seconds after starting the washer, we were told "motor", and a week to get it. Add to that, we were told "It will only get louder and louder with age". 2 weeks later, no call, no answers to messages, I called Lowes. Lowes delivered a NEW unit (this one) to me, thanks to the local store. 2 months later, motor on
this one started to make noise! Replaced by another shop a week later.
Within a month, that motor failed, but because of a newborn child, dealing with it was back-burnered for a few months, until it was replaced yet again 2 or 3 months ago. This week, motor #3 started making the sound. LOTS, and I mean LOTS of complaints about their appliances has me furious that nearly $600 was spent for a piece of broken trash!
There is no public access to anyone at Frigidaire or anyone at their corporate office, and nobody cares about the need for a recall. Last Frigidaire, EVER.
