Frigidaire - Professional Series Dishwasher 4000
Grinding Noise - Complaint
BORDENTOWN, NEW JERSEY -- Purchased at Lowes in December 2008 our Professional Series Dishwasher (4000 Series) started to run a little rough and loud a few months ago. In the beginning it was so quiet you wouldn't even know it was on. Now we are unable to close the door on the dishwasher at all becasue it remains on at all times even though the buttons are not lit. The moment the door is shut it begins to make a very loud grinding noise. After two calls to different repairs guys I've been informed that the entire electrical panel needs to be replaced which will cost around $225 plus their fee to install it (new the Dishwasher was $499).
Numerous calls to Frigidaire were not productive. Now I'm finding stuff online complaining about the dishwasher catching fire. I could see if the thing was abused but it is only used three times a week. I would not suggest this product or any other from Frigidaire or Electrolux (same company same mentality). I wasn't even permitted to speak with a supervisor when I called to complain because it was not covered under warranty.
