Got a new Frigidaire Gallery series washer a couple of months ago to replace the 20+ year old Kenmore that was in the house when I bought it. It runs fine most of the time but now and then it will stop (in rinse&hold or in a normal wash cycle) and the "High Temp Wash" and "No Heat Dry" indicator lamps will start flashing on and off. If you open the washer and then latch the door again and restart the cycle it works fine - but what is the washer trying to tell me?

I'll need a model number to do a look-up.
MOST Frigidaire dishwashers that have an electronic control panel---will flash during the wash cycle and this is normal.
Post your model number--I can give you more specific info from that.

can't find the papers right at the moment (GOTTA get stuff filed better), but the closest to it on the Frigidaire site is the model GLD2250RDB - at least the control panel is the same.

Frigidaire D/Ws that have *Hi Temp Wash* and *Hi TempRinse* will go into a pause-mode when it is attempting to reach the neccesary temperatures.
The STATUS INDICATOR LIGHT(S) will flash---indicating that the cycle will not advance until the correct temp has been reached.
This can lead to varying cycle completion times--especially during the winter months.
If the dishes are clean and dry--the D/W is working as it should.

That's Ok, they're not needed. The machine's model number is written on the appliance's model and serial number tag *located on the machine*. That is the only reliable place the complete information will be found anyway.

You can find tips for locating that identification at at the following link:

Thanks for the info - found it under this stick-on tag extolling the virtues of the machine.... it's a GLD2250RDB0 specifically.
So, since it's the "Hi Temp Wash" and "No Heat Dry" lights that flash, then this isprobably an indication that it's warming up the wash water to some required temperature? If so, I'll make sure to run the hot water for a minute or so to make sure it's up to temp - the kitchen hot water usually does take a bit to run hot if it hasn't been used for a while.
