Dishwasher LD-1420T1 tripping power in the house?


Okay, this could be tricky because depending on who installed it, they might have wired into it. Check your garbage disposal and if you have anything else plugged in nearby, check that wiring too. Some installers have a nasty issue when it comes to hard wiring. They don't like doing it. So instead of hard-wiring your garbage disposal, they'll cut it in to your dishwasher. If your garbage disposal or anything else is wired to your dishwasher the load on the washer and the current the washer is using is too high. That's going to trip your breakers. You should probably contact an electrician and have them check the breaker box to make sure it's wired correctly. You may need to upgrade the breaker or have the dishwasher circuit upgraded. If it's an old house, it could be anything but first, check to see that nothing is wired into your dishwasher. You can tell if you have a few switches in the same outlet and turn them off. If your garbage disposal won't work and the DW won't either, then you have a wiring issue. That's the easiest way to start.

It will not start!!!


Hi raker... Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker. Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it. Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors. Timer or selector switch Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.

I would like o know how to reset the dishwasher ,


Hi Brenda. Sor[ry to hear about your troubles. If I was nearby I would come over and help you in person.

Read the reasons why your dishwasher may not be working and check as many as you can safely. Get back and let me know what you find. I will work with you as long as necessary to get this resolved.

If your dishwasher doesn't work at all, check these:

Power from the house
Door switch
Wiring
Timer or selector switch
Power from the house Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.

providing its not under guarantee remove mains plug and remove door skin from front of door carefully, as it has to go back on, look for any broken wires just above the door hinge, there will be about 10 or 15 wires, its possible that if you have checked what you said have checked properly that one of these wires has got hot and broken (very common fault of all dishwashers aver 3 year old) replace wire with care etc, work safely,
