frigdedaire dishwasher HO
« on: October 29, 2011, 09:40:04 AM »

my dishwasher flashes HO  it seams to work ok but is it time to buy a new one? You know with the labor rates so high I think I can buy a new one for less than having someone fix it.
does HO mean the heater is bad?

HO is a water heating delay... Normal if the water is not very hot when coming into the dishwasher ... If you’re seeing HO frequently, check the temperature of the water come into your dishwasher the water should be not less than 120 f.
Check the Basics first!!! Read the Manual !!!Buy the tech a Beer!!!
