    The outlet works fine. I even wheeled it over to another outlet. It's a portable dishwasher.

    There is large number of possibilities that could be going on. I will list a few the cord could have a break in it , the motor my have a short or a dead spot in it, a wire may have come off inside which will break all electric workings of the dishwasher. I have another question for you how old is this dishwasher?

If already repaired you might try:
Normal - heated dry - normal - heated dry. then try to use the machine.

Wash cycle doesn't seem to work. bottom has water

Your gonna have to pull the dishwasher out and shut off the water line. Then disconnect the water hose and get you a bucket. Then turn on the water line to see if water comes out. If water comes out strong then your water supply line is good, which means your inlet port on the dishwasher is clogged or hard water has clogged the little holes in the dishwasher arms. Dishwashers are meant to leave a little water remaining at the bottom to keep the sensor from burning up.

How to Start And use ???

I have the 6040 model, and it has a number of buttons on the left, and a dial on the right.

if yours is the same, then you need to select a program using the buttons "Normal" for example, then turn the dial to just after the top A selection (I mean just after this, by a few mm, it clicks past the A slightly)

this will then do a pre-was, and the main wash you have selected.

The other buttons are fairly self explanatory, like half load for a half load, pre wash to only do a pre wash etc...

Hope the helps!

Hi my hoover 6612 dishwasher does its pre-wash but then when the light for wash comes on it does nothing. I wondered if it might be a capacitor which needed replacing but I can't find one - any ideas??

Check the float switch inside the tub, it should move freely up and down.

Check the harness to the motor

Check start capacitor on the left side of the wash motor

My whirlpool gold dishwasher GU180 wont start

I had the same problem with the exact same model - put your washer on the lowest wash setting - press and hold the start button for about 3 seconds. THe washer will run for about 5 seconds and then turn off (do not have the heated dry setting on when you do this).

Turn it off (turn the dial), and then try to re-wash.

Dishwasher conrol panel light comes on but it wont go into wash cycle

All dishwashers usually start by draining first, if your machine does not detect that your machine is empty it will not start to wash. There are a few resons why this can happen, could be the pressure switch is stuck. Some machines ie bosch have a float switch mounted in the base so if your machine has leaked underneath and lifted the switch it will just stay on drain.... would help to know the make and model number

Hotpoint fdw20p dishwasher

You need the control panel to reset before anything else can happen. To do this TURN OFF THE PLUG SOCKET FIRST AND UNPLUG. Then you need to drain ALL the water from the machine. Turn off the water supply feed and place the wastage pipe as low to the floor as poss ( 1-2" off floor). Water will gush out so use a large shallow tray and keep emptying the tray. Tilt the dishwasher over slightly to make sure all the water is out.
This will allow the control panel to reset itself which wouldn't normally happen if the base of the dishwasher was holding even a small amount of water.
Re connect the water, plug back in , select the RESET setting on the dial and close the door and switch on.
Leave for about 20 seconds and then turn off.
Rotate the selector switch to "A" Intensive wash and switch
I found this on another site and it really did work for me
