Not turning on

Remember KISS Principle......check your circuit breaker panel for a tripped breaker first. If that is ok, there is probably another circuit breaker or a fuse on the unit itself. Hopefully, you have the book that came with the unit. It will show you if you look at the parts diagram and parts list. If no book, go online to the manufacturers website and download a copy. They are usually available free of charge.

Ok, Turn breaker off at breaker panel. Just off then on. The rinse only light should be on.....not flashing. Now press the start button first and hold; then press the cancel button. That should cancel all lights. Then press wash button then start. If the light is still flashing after you turn off might have a bigger problem. May need new control panel.

Our dishwasher has power to it, however, when we try to push any of the buttons, nothing happens. We are not able to get anything, its almost as if the buttons are frozen. If you have any suggestions,...

A lot of times due to the vibration of the motor the main power connection where the dishwasher connects to the house wiring the connection will burn off. To check if that is it remove the bottom panel and remove the cover to the junction box and check for burnt connection,it would be pretty obvious to see with the blackened wiring and the melted wire connectors. BEFORE DOING THAT TURN OFF CIRCUIT BREAKER FOR THE DISHWASHER. If the connection seems ok and not burnt up the most likeley cause will be a fuse on the control board has blown.

Good luck,i hope this answer helps you figure out why your d/w is dead,

When I push the power button on the dishwasher, there is now no power and the dishwasher does not turn on and there are no lights generated. The circuit breaker has been checked and that is not the...

Try a fan or light where the washer is plugged in. Suspect a bad power plug connection if the test works. The next suspect is a faulty microswitch connected with the door latch mechanism. You will likely need a test meter to track this down. Good luck!

My dishwasher has no power not even on the touch panel leds lights. I checked the connections.. Is there a reset button or a fuse i can replace or reset?

Check the appropriate breaker in your house electrical panel--push off, then on. If still nothing, look for a removable panel at the bottom under the door. Any internal fuses or breakers will be accessible there.
