I have the same problem with mine as well but I found out that if you take a space heater to it and warm the control panel up for about 5 minutes, everything works great. This model of dishwasher seems to be problematic in any environment under 70-75 degrees.

The person or persons that crimped on your spade push on) terminal ends, either cut thru most of the wire when stripping it for the terminal connector, leaving only very few wires, and /c they cannot carry the current, they simply vaporize leaving a terminal securely attached to plastic insulation - but no wire to carry the current.or he/she/it failed to properly prepare the wire end to expose enough wire, and crimped onto the insulation, leaving the wire hanging.
Pull the plug
Grab each of the power-related wire ends in turn and with your fingers, try to pull the crimped-on end off. Do not pull hard, although IF it was correctly stripped and crimped at the factory, you would not be able to. I am sure you will find one that feels very limp.. thats the culprit. Nip over to Home Depot or ACE and buy a Wire Termination kit ($10-20.00) which will contain all sizes andtypes you may need + a Cut/Strip and crimp tool.

It was either a MON or FRI job. Too hungover from the weekend... or too jumpy to go home.

No power seen at controls. Circuit breaker ok.


We had the same problem less than a year after we got ours. After two visits from the repairman, and a better business bureau complaint, they finally told us that there was a small opening on the inside of the door that allowed steam to escape into the area where the main circuit board is housed, causing it to short out. Replacing the circuit board and running a bead of silicone along the gap solved the problem. Hope that helps some!

Will not drain water


Hello & Welcome to FixYa
Dishwasher not draining completely problem usually occurs due to clogged/blocked drain hose or the drain pump not working. First try to clean the drain hose and drain pump filter for any clogs, then check drain pump operation. If the problem returns after cleaning then it is the drain pump that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

My Dishwasher starts as usual,,,fills with water then starts the wash cycle and quits after 5 seconds or so. it then does this 2 more times and shuts off completely. when i turn it on again it drains and...


Check the user guide manual. If resetting procedure is shown, follow it.
Otherwise the problem is with micro controller board. You have to contact the service provider as this is a computer program related fault.

If mechanical timer is used you can try cleaning them. But I doubt as the mechanical timers are no longer in use for the past few years.

Hope your incoming mains voltage is as per the recommendations!
110 V or 220 V as per your country standards.

Some times voltage fluctuations causes this problem. Should not be less than 10 % in any standard.

No power to dishwasher


Do the following:
  1. Check the power from the wall outlet or the branch circuit itself.
  2. Check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.
  3. Check the wiring connections of the dishwasher from the house wiring.
  4. Check the door switch. Remove the control panel cover or the interior liner of the door whenever it is applicable. Replace if defective.
  5. Check the timer or selector switch. replace if defective.

POWER ON-PROGRAM WONT WORK


1. No power to the dishwasherMake sure there's power getting to the dishwasher. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the dishwasher (inside the junction box, behind the bottom kick panel), if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

2. Door switch
Replace if defective.

3. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

4. Selector switch
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).
