Electrolux (Frigidaire Div) Complaint - Fghd2433 - tub is always wet; leaks when it feels like it too!
GEORGIA -- Dishwasher was purchased 10-15-2011. By 12-18-2011 I'd had 6 service calls. The tub stays wet, including the silverware basket. 1st repairman was told to replace the electronic panel since it wouldn't give an error code in diagnostic mode. Dishwasher tub still wet and had to be wiped out to avoid mustiness. 2nd call was to replace the electronic panel. Still no error code. Tech called Electrolux specialist and was told, "If the dishes are clean, it's working OK." (Dishes in top center rack do not get clean due to design flaw on sprayer arm.) 3rd call an experienced tech came back with another tech. They removed the dishwasher from the cabinet and replaced the vent in the upper back part of the tub. Guess what? Moisture vents into the surrounding cabinetry. Over time that can cause mold, discoloration, and warping of my custom cabinetry! 4th call they again replaced the upper vent - less than 10 days after installing a new one. Service trips 5 and 6 were by a "second opinion company since I'd called and complained to Frigidaire. Nothing was resolved.
I sent a registered return receipt requested letter to the VP of major appliances for Electrolux North America. 10 days later I was offered a replacement -- the SAME MODEL with the same flaws. They refuse to refund my money, only replace the machine. I'm trolling sites now to see if a more expensive model has fewer flaws. Perhaps they'll let me "buy up" since it will put more money in their pockets.
The irony is that I bought another Frigidaire appliance based on the reliability and features of my Professional Series dual fuel stove, which has been wonderful!
