Wont turn on is thier a reset button
OK I am not an expert but I have spent the last two weeks learning about
and fixing my dishwasher! Hopefully I can save you a headache. Try the
* Try turning off the switch for a longer period of time - 10-15 minutes. This may reset your washer.
If any of your button lights come on but a regular cycle will not start, try running diagnostic/reset cycles by pressing
heated dry -normal- heated dry or heated dry-sanitize-heated dry in
sequence. If the cycles run fine, you will rule out a power, latch,
motor/drying issue. It also may (hopefully) reset your system.
your buttons do not light up or normal function still does not resume after the reset, make sure your power (from the
breaker box) is turned off and unscrew (with a star-shaped screwdriver
bit - check your car emergency kit/toolbox, you may find you have it)
and open the front button control panel and check all connections. Try
carefully unplugging and replugging wires and look for any
corrosion/moisture on the circuit board.
* If that does not work,
test the circuit board by unplugging the green ribbon cable from the
control panel, reassembling with the ribbon cable unplugged, flipping
your circuit back on and then closing the dishwasher door. If the drain
motor runs, it will show you that there is power getting into the machine and that there is still some function with the
circuit board. Although it doesn't rule out the circuit board
completely, it will point to the possibility of a control (button) panel issue
and you may try replacing that. If the drain test does NOT run, it may be the
circuit board that needs to be replaced.
There may be some additional instructions specific to your model hidden in an envelope behind the kickplate of your washer.
Hopefully some of that helps!
