Model Number: FDB4315LFC2
Brand: Frigidaire
Age: 1-5 years

Last night I went to start the dishwasher and it came up with a ER UO error code and it wouldn't start or run at all. I looked in the manual and they didn't list this error code. Any idea or what this means, or how to fix it?

The ER UO error code means "Vent Open". On the top back right corner of the dishwasher tub, there is a vent and fan that opens to help dry the dishes at the end of the cycle. If the computer senses that the vent is open, then it won't start the cycle. Frigidaire says to first check the wiring and connections. If the wiring and connections are good, then you should first replace the vent assembly. If that doesn't solve your problem, then you should replace the main control board.


UO Error: Vent open. While in wash cycle ,main control does not receive signal from vent assembly that vent plunger is closed. Plunger
status is sensed with optical sensor in vent assembly. Check wiring between vent assembly and main control board. If wiring correct,replace vent assembly. If error still exist, replace main control board.

This is the vent assembly for your model:

These are the manufactures instructions on how to replace this part. Make sure to unplug or shut off power to the dishwasher, and shut off the water supply to the dishwasher before working on it.

I took the dishwasher apart and I couldn't find any bad or loose electrical connections. I inspected the vent, and I couldn't see any visual signs that it was bad. I took the risk and ordered the part with your recommendation. I put the new part in over the weekend, and it is working great now. Thanks for the help! You saved me a lot of money!

I have this exact same problem and the part looks identical. Is that vent unit shown universal with the Frigidaire Model #: FGHD2433KF1 and if not what is the part number for my model? Thanks in advance for your help.

Did a little more searching and answered my own question. ;)

It is not a universal part, but your model also uses part number 154773301.

Your model dishwasher uses a different part number. The wire harness will need to be replaced at the same time as the vent fan.

I have the vent off of my dishwasher Model # PLD4555RFC2. Is there a way to verify if it is indeed bad, as it is only 4 years old? The machine was coding UO and there are no obvious wiring problems. Also where can I order the part and what is the part number?

No the manufacture does not have a way to verify the vent is bad. The part number for your model is 154773301. Let me know what you find.

Hi Doc, I have the same "uo" code on a Frigidare dishwasher md#FGHDZ2433KWO. Ser#TH93277839. What is the part number for the vent assembly? Also the dish washer makes a lot of squeaking noises thru out the run cycle, is that normal?

Doc Ryan

Could you double check your model number for me please? It is not coming up for me. Where does the squeaking noise seem to be coming from?

Sorry, Md# FGHD2433KWO. The squeakiung sound like the motor or pump, its very noticable. Not sure if its normal on this dishwasher? Thanks, Jim

Same flashing "vo/Er" code on mine.
I ran the little diagnostic test (holding down "Air Dry"and "Start"for 3 seconds), and got "VO"right away, then it went through 02 and 03 and 04 stages with no errors, then gave me "HS" code (hall sensor for wash motor?) during the 05 stage. Goes through 06 stage of test, then gives me "RA" (Rinse aid) error in stage 07.

The squeaking sound could be coming from the circulation pump motor. Sometimes when the circulation pump starts to go bad, it can start to get noisy and squeak like that. Sometimes when this starts to happen, the pump can also start to leak water, so it is a good idea to replace it right away.

These are the parts for your model:

Same flashing "vo/Er" code on mine. Lots of standing water in the bottom.
That water that I can see in your picture is normal. There is always water that will sit in the bottom of the pump sump housing like that. If you are getting the UO ER error code, you will most likely need to replace the vent & fan assembly.

My new vent assembly delivered yesterday and I want to confirm that I do not also need any new wiring. The part number is 154861101 and the wiring all looks fine on the dish washer. Also, if I don't need new wiring could you include how to disconnect the original wiring and connect to new vent assembly?

Thanks for the help.

Your model dishwasher uses part number 154861101 for the vent assembly. It does NOT need the vent with the wiring harness.

Yes, you will just need to disconnect the wiring harness and reconnect that onto the new vent assembly. There is not much else you need to know, this is a pretty easy repair. Make sure to disconnect the power while working on the dishwasher.

I have a model PLD4555RFC0. The dishwasher first posted the same OU error as others. After stopping the cycle and restarting it the error didn't come back and the cycle continued, however, the heating cycle ran at least an hour longer than it should have and melted some plastic dishware on the bottom rack and distorted the plastic housing of a grater blade on the top rack.
Is this most likely still the vent causing this or could it be something else like the control board? Is it possible it got hot enough as to be concerned about damage to wiring in the washer?
Thanks.

It sounds like the dishwasher has multiple issues. The vent problem should not affect the cycle time or the dishwasher getting hot like that. That type of problem most commonly can be from the water not circulating properly or the control board or temperature sensor failing.

Good question. It is located in the top back right corner on the outside of the tub of the dishwasher. Please see the attached diagram, I drew an arrow pointing to the hole where the vent fan assembly goes.

Hi, I am still trying to figure out how to post on this site, so sorry if you receive this message multiple times.
Model fghd2433kf1 Dishwasher gives the Er uo code for the vent fan. I was advised that the most likely problem was the control board, which I replaced. With the new control board, there was no difference in the function; it still gave the uo code. I turned off and restored the power twice. Same thing. I pulled the dishwasher out so that the fan is visible. When I reset it and started again the fan turned briefly then stoped. This continued for several times over about 20 seconds then stoped completely and the uo code showed again. I checked the electrical connection to the fan, unplugged it several times. Clearly the fan is getting power. What do you suggest?

Hoping for some help here. This dishwasher is about to drive me crazy. I bought the replacement vent after getting Er uo as well. I installed it and all was well for a few weeks. Now the dish washer is doing the exact same thing. I can hear the vent attempting to close but after a few tries the Er uo comes up. I have a frigidaire gallery Frigidaire Model #: FGHD2433KF1.

What else could it be? I already replaced the vent. I can hear it trying to "do it's thing" but it never get's past that step.

You could either have a failure of the new vent, or a wiring or control board problem.

Thanks for the speedy reply. I type this after just drying my hands having HAND WASHED dishes.... I'm not above it but I have this machine that can do the job just as good as I can :cool:. I disassembled the dishwasher and found the service manual. I ran the dishwasher through the diagnostic test and the only error is the Er uo. I have not had this new vent for more than six months. Is there anything I can do to tell if this is limited to the vent or if the problem is actually the controller board. I have my multimeter leads in hand.....

Unfortunately there is not a test you can do. Since the vent fan is the most common thing that fails and causes this problem, I would check to see if the part you ordered is still under warranty and I would start by replacing the vent fan again.

I had the same problem and the fix is possibly simple like mine.
What isn't simple, is getting to the vent & fan assembly that ER UO code is directed at.
First, when you start the wash cycle, do you get three tapping sounds and then the error code?
If so, proceed ........
After you do the hard work and pull the unit out, the assembly is on the top right rear of the dishwasher.
Reach inside and unscrew the mount ring, then turn the vent & fan assembly over.
Remove two small screws and then you can remove the vent & fan assembly cover.
You will find a rubber valve that is controlled by a small solenoid.
Remove the rubber valve and clean (mine was VERY scuzzy) ....please make note of the valve position before removal.
** The sensor that tells the control unit if the valve is open or not, is controlled by a plastic tab on the valve assembly, so please be careful while cleaning!
Reassemble the vent & fan assembly and again, please be careful because this assembly is not inexpensive.
Replace the vent & fan assembly and reinstall the dishwasher ...you should be ready to test.
My unit worked perfectly after the clean job :)

If this doesn't fix the dishwasher, most likely you will need a new vent & fan assembly.

I have the same vent open problem, Frigidaire model PLD4375RFC0. Do I need just the Vent & Fan Assembly #154861101 or do I need the one with the wire harness #5304467317? Thank you very much for your help.

My husband took the assembly out of the dishwasher today and we definitely need the wire harness because the wires come out of the assembly we have, there's no way to unplug them and re-use them with the new assembly. So I'll order the one with the wire harness. Thanks!

I have the same problem:
- Frigidaire "Gallery" dishwasher
- Model: FGHD2433KW1, Serial: TH02154453
- Code "Er uo", dishwasher doesn't run

Two questions:
- If I want to replace the vent/fan assembly, what part # would I order?
- Is the vent/fan assembly in the door?

If the vent/fan assembly in the door, this looks like a pretty straightforward repair for an experience DIYer. Is the procedure basically remove the interior panel of the door, then swap in the new vent/fan assembly?

Thanks in advance...
Dan

UPDATE: I overlooked this previous post, regarding the same serial number.


This is the vent assembly for your model:

Vent & Fan Assembly - 154861101 (http://www.partsdr.com/Parts/154861101-vent-fan-assembly-2082.cfm?Partner=Forum154861101)

So I think I already have my answer. Thanks Doc!

Yes that is correct, yours requires the kit with the wire harness to upgrade yours to the new style.

Your model number is missing a digit at the end, but it looks like they both use the same part number for the vent and fan assembly.

I have PLD4375RFC2, after I press START, the vent tried to click ~3 times, and then Er UO error code showed up. I followed this thread of discussion, and got part 154861101, and just tried it on. It does not help at all. Same symptom and error code after press START. What would be the problem? Need help:(

The replacement part could be defective, or you could have a bad control board or wiring issue. Anyone of those three things can cause this problem.

Thanks for your quick reply. It was new part that just arrived. I cannot tell of course if the part is defective or not. I guess no way to diagnose if replacing control board will solve the problem. Seems an expensive try if that's not the root cause.

You could check with the manufacture to see if it is still under manufacture warranty, many appliances come with a 1 year warranty from the manufacture.

Your model number isn't coming up for me, I think you may have meant BGHD2433KF1? When the dishwasher comes up with the ER UO error code the dishwasher will stop running, so it could definitely be causing your problem.

We have an older dishwasher that just started acting up. We get the ER UO code within 20 seconds of trying to start the dishwasher. We had the clicking sound and the water would start to run, but it is definitely not washing the dishes. We tried to take things apart and put them back together (vent, catch tray, bottom sprayer, opened up the panel area). That helped us one time, but now we are back to the dishwasher not working again. Help, please! With three small kids 5 and under, the dishwasher MUST work!

Our model number is PLD4555RFCO.

Thank you for your time and assistance.

UO Error: Vent open. While in wash cycle ,main control does not receive signal from vent assembly that vent plunger is closed. Plunger
status is sensed with optical sensor in vent assembly. Check wiring between vent assembly and main control board. If wiring correct,replace vent assembly. If error still exist, replace main control board.

I think the last digit of your model number is a 1 instead of an I. We see the vent fan fixes the Er Uo error code on these dishwashers in most cases. I am not sure of the cause of the failure as the vent fans themselves are not serviceable.

I took it off and looked at it as it was trying to start. The fan was kicking on and off, and the vent was opening and closing everytime the fan kicked on and off. Do you think it could be the vent still or do you think it could be the main board?

That is how they normally act when they fail, the vent will try to open and close a few times before giving the error code. I would still recommend to start by replacing the vent fan.
