I PULLED THE DISHWASHER OUT FROM UNDER MY KITCHEN TOP. THEN TRIED IT AGAIN AND IT STARTED WORKING. WATER WAS ENTERING THE MACHINE AS IT SHOULD AND THE WHOLE CYCLE WAS COMPLETED FROM WASHING TO DRYING. BUT WITH THE ODD RATTLING SOUND NOT COOMING FROM DISHES. I ASSUME THE INLET PIPE WAS PROBABLY BENT THEREFORE BLOCKING WATER COMING IN BUT WHY NOW AFTER YEARS OF BEING IN THAT POSITION. THE OTHER THING I CHANGED WAS THE ELECTRIC SOCKET POINT- IE I PLUGGED IT IN SOMEWHERE ELSE BECAUSE MOVING IT MEANT THE LEAD COULD NOT REACH ORIGINAL SOCKET. HOPEFULLY WHEN I RETURN IT TO ORIGINAL POSITION EVERYTHING WILL BE WORKING. FUNNY THING HAPPENED THE WEEK BEFORE- MY WASHING MACHINE WAS STUCK IN MIDDLE OF A CYCLE . BUT STARTED WORKING THE FOLLOWING DAY. COULD IT BE MY ELECTRICITY PERHAPS - IE MY APPLIANCES ARE NOT RECEIVING ENOUGH CURRENT?

My dishwasher will not start its cycle



Is the door open or unlatched?

Make sure the door is completely closed and latched. On models with a dual-digit display, the control displays "- -" during a cycle if it believes the door is not latched. Check for obstructions (spoons, etc), interfering with the door operation. A lower dish rack that is installed backward will also cause incomplete door closure.

Is there power to the dishwasher?

electricity ground dishwasher.
Connect ground wire to green ground connector in terminal box.
Donot use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death,fire,or electrical shock.




Check your household electrical box to see if a fuse has blown or if the circuit breaker has tripped. If the unit has a plug-in power cord, make sure it is plugged in.

Does your dishwasher have a rotary timer knob? (Some Models)

The cycle selection must match the position of the timer knob. Turn the timer knob to the beginning of the preferred cycle. The timer knob should click when you reach the start of the cycle.

Is the control lock option activated?

Press and hold the Heated Dry option (button with lock icon) for five seconds and the light should turn off. Instructions are also placed on the label on top of the inner door to unlock the controls.

Is the delay start option activated?

To cancel the delay and cycle, press Cancel/Drain.

Has the motor stopped for less than 10 minutes?

The motor may have stopped due to an overload. If this is the case, the motor will automatically reset itself within 5-10 minutes.

Is the Start/Resume indicator flashing?

Opening the door or interrupting the power can stop the cycle. Close the door and press Start/Resume. If the Start/Resume indicator flashes three times when you press Start/Resume, the dishwasher is waiting for you to open the door after the last cycle. Open and close the door, and then press Start/Resume.

On models where the controls are on top of the door be sure to close the door within 3 seconds of pressing the Start/Resume to start or resume the dishwasher cycle.

Is the water shutoff valve (if installed) turned on?

Make sure that the water shutoff valve is turned on.

If these tips did not work or your controls are not working correctly you may need to schedule service.

Speed Queen HD comercial washer


Its sounds like you need a replacement knob, if you can turn the disc behind it to start a cycle and the machine times out find the timer is probably still good, do a Google search for Speed Queen parts, and buy the correct replacement knob.
