Dishwasher is displaying ER in
HI there. I suspect that the element has failed. Follow the procedure below to confirm the failure. If the element passes the inspection below, this will lead to a malfunctioning control board(PCB).
First, open the door and look into the tub and locate the heating element (if it is covered, remove the lower dish rack and cover). The heating element has two terminals which extend through the bottom of the tub, note the general location where they go through.
To access the heating element's wiring, remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to reach the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel. Look into the lower access area and locate where the terminals come through the tub. Each terminal has a wire connected to it. Label the wires and the terminals so that they can be properly reconnected. Pull the wire off of each terminal. Firmly pull the connector, do not pull on the wire. You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers. Inspect the connector and terminal for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be replaced. Test the resistance of the heating element using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1 and touch one probe to each of the terminals. A normal reading will be somewhere around infinity and zero. The exact reading differs by manufacturer and model. If the indicator does not move (infinite resistance) or moves to the other extreme of the scale (zero resistance), Then it should be replaced.

Er message on panel of Frigidaire GLD3450RD
I had the same problem last spring. Unfortnuatly, the problem is within the electronic control. Steam leaks in, due to an improper seal ring. Humidity stay in the compartment and eventually, the contact on the wire ribbon corrodes. For me, it meant a new electronic module.
If the eletronic module is ok, then the only working solution require that you order and install a "fit kit" from Frigidaire.
Some models even have a recall made form Frigidaire. Better check with them.
