New dishwasher was working prerfectly and now it will not power up.
I checked the breaker it's fine and I checked the outlet for power.
The dishwasher will not power up. There was water at the bottom of the tub so I took out the filter removed the water and cleaned out the drain pump.
Still no power. Any suggestions on what to do next?

Your question is: New dishwasher was working prerfectly and now it will not power up. You checked the breaker it's fine and I checked the outlet for power. The dishwasher will not power up. There was water at the bottom of the tub so you took out the filter removed the water and cleaned out the drain pump. Still no power. Any suggestions on what to do next?
I see this all the time! Your problem is electrical. 9 times out of 10 you'll find a loose, broken or burnt connection in the junction box. Turn off the breaker first, we're not going to get a shock. Look under the d/w and behind the kick plate. You'll find a small metal box on the right or center. Remove the screw. You'll then find the hard wire connections we're looking for. Take wire nuts off one at a time (so we don't confise them). Inspect carefully. Replace wire nuts and restrip wire ends as nessessary. Test the unit before replacing box and plate, there's a chance you might have missed something. Confirm d/w is working then recover.

4) Break new meter with hammer and they will replace with another new meter made in China, intended to put local workers out of a job, so we can pay for automated meter reading requiring software owned by foreign investors charging at least 25 cents per month per customer to read the meter, using workers located somewhere else, which doesn't include cost of necessary towers and maintenance, or include software upgrades, or include needed security upgrades. Oh, but you will be able to pay additional monthly fee to get static snapshots of power usage at 15 minute intervals, and the switch controlling your power will be located somewhere besides your town.
you need to check that you have power going through the breaker. you do that with a voltmeter.once you know you have power through the breaker you have to check you have power at the Dishwasher with the voltmeter.if you have power there you could have reset on the motor. or the clock has gone bad.I have seen some feed out of a GFI outlet to the dishwasher.
I may have the solution. Husband just turned off power to dishwasher via circuit breaker. Waited around 30 minutes.
Restored power and Triton came back with normal lights.
I just ran a cycle and all was well. Hope this helps you.
My fingers are crossed because I don't know what happened but did read on another site that this should be the first thing you try before expen$ive repairman.

My dishwasher a diplomat 12 program (hja8640) was doing exactly the same where every now and again when turned on at the plug it would trip. After engineers coming out several times and failing to fix it, they condemed it. New one was supplied, however did exactly the same thing. The electrician came back, checked the RCD power breaker and this was fine. It was then discovered that some dishwashers and washing machines send out a lot of earth leakage, combine this with other appliances on in the house can be enough to trip.
Soloution. The electrician removed the kitchen circut from the RCD breaker and intalled another breaker RCD just for the kitcehn loop, this therefore means that the kitchen has a seperate trip from the rest of the house, and touch wood, has solved the problem. This mind you has taken about three months to work out so i hope it saves you some time.
Check your breaker first. If your breaker is fine , then remove inner door panel by taking out screws. Next remove cover from control panel, and replace control panel fuse. Write down the make and model # of your dishwasher, then go to appliance store buy new fuse. Then you will know what it looks like. Then you will be able to replace the one in the control panel. Afterwards seal control panel cover with silicone, and reassemble. that should fix your problem, but if not we would be more than happy to assist you further.
