Is this wired directly to the Breaker/fuse box?
Or is there an electrical outlet socket under the sink that this plugs into?
Possibly for the former you may need to turn off the breaker, remove the fuse to turn off the power. Unscrew the machine where it is attached to the counter and pull it out from the counter. Where the wire is attached to the machine, unscrew it and remove it from the machine. The machine's drain hose should be removed from the drain where it is attached to the disposal or the drain pipe. Then you can discard the old machine.
If there is an electric socket that the power is plugged into unplug and follow the rest of the procedure. Otherwise after removing the machine, get an electrician to install a plug outlet so that your new machine can be plugged into the wall socket and alleviate this problem in the future.

Seems to have lost power-no lights are lit only 2 months old


Take off the bottom panel and check to see if you have electric where the electric line comes in to the dishwasher.Please be careful you may have a wire that came out of the wire nut connection. Hope this leads you in the right direction.

There is now an electrical smell


Can't see what your original problem was but the electrical smell could be the power connection in the junction box in the bottom of the dishwasher. I have had several burn the wires here.
Also, not sure of the age of d'washer. some of the older ones had an issue where the wires come up into the door. look at the harness where it goes thru the bottom of the door.

Dishwasher not washing or dissolving soap


Do your dishes look cloudy or spotty? If so it is not soap but rather hard water residue. Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com and get a filter that filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. it is very affordable(like 70 bucks) and guaranteed to work or you can return it for a full refund. I bet this will solve the problem.

Woke this mornig to find the Bosch dishwaser had tripped the electrics and now will not power on. It was almost through the cycle. There is water still in the bottom though.


The main problem when a dishwsher trips your power is the element has failed. Basically you will need to replace the element and problem solved.
Hope this helps!?

Whirlpoool dishwasher not turning on model du1050


Make sure you have power to the dishwasher, check circuit breaker. If circuit breaker is ok, then remove toe panel at bottom front of machine, on the right hand side is where the power cable goes into a little metal box. Turn off circuit breaker to kill power to the dishwasher, remove electrical box cover and check to make sure that the wire nuts are tight. Reapply power and test. If still no go then remove tech service sheet from toe panel insulation, get yourself a multi-meter and start test individual components until you find the one that is bad. Hope this helps.
