    Okay, false alarm...figured I'd explain in case anyone else has a similar problem.



    My dishwasher has a feature called Sabbath mode...completely shuts off and the normal controls don't operate at all. You need to hold your finger on the control for 10 full seconds and it comes to life. There's no sign that it's in this special mode - looks and acts completely dead.

    Discovered the Sabbath mode on our eltrolux dishwasher after the repairman took 2 minutes to revive our completely dead dishwasher. Even he didn't know how to correct it until he called the company. Bigger problem is how it got into such a mode - no clue unless little fingers inadvertently pushed something. Fix is as easy as holding down the corner of control panel for 10 seconds.

2 THINGS COME TO MINE EASY CHECKS , MAKE SURE THE DOOR IS CLOSING PROPERLY AND THE DOOR SWITCH IS MAKING UP WELL AND CHECK TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE 110VOLTS LEAVING THE BREAKER AND @ THE DISHWASHER CONNECTION IF IT HAS A RECEPTACLE ON THE DISHWASHER END TRY TO PLUG IN ANOTHER DEVICE SUCH AS A DRILL OR SAW OR OTHER APP, TO SEE IF IT WILL RUN THIS IS A BETTER CK THAN A METER BECAUSE IT PROVES IT IS PASSING CURRENT AS WELL AS VOLTAGE , METERS ARE NONE LOAD DEVICES AND CAN FOOL YOU

Electrolux dishwasher tripping on drying cycle


Good Afternoon friend, thank you for your post!
From my understanding your Electrolux dishwasher is tripping your circuit breaker during the cycles. This could be a wiring issue within your dishwasher and you may need to have a professional technician come out. The technician will have the appropriate tools needed for pinpointing the issue within your dishwasher. Best of luck! -Matt

Elctrolux dishwasher won't start, display won't light. Any suggestions?


Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Electrolux dishwasher, model# EWDW6505GS, seems like it is not receiving power to the control panel. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging your appliance or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 20-30 minutes. Restore power and try any cycle. If you are still not receiving any lights, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine what is causing your control panel to not have power.. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

My electrolux dishwasher will not start and no lights on panel


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Electrolux dishwasher, model# EDW5505ESS, will not start and the control panel seems to be dead. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker, for 20-30 minutes. Once power is restored, if the panel is still not lighting up, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician. I do not suggest trying to repair it yourself. There could be something other than the panel, which is causing the dishwasher to seem dead. The technicians will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine what is causing the panel to not light up. Hope this is helpful.

Won't start?


Good Morning Lisa - Try resetting the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. Wait roughly ten minutes and turn on the dishwasher. Confirm that the door is properly latched and try selecting a cycle. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, it could potentially mean a number of things: wiring failure, damaged cord, faulty door latch assembly or control board. I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose the dishwasher to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

My electrolux dishwasher is showing warning lights and would not reset


Hello Ali Bilgrami - Try reprogramming the dishwasher by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes, restart unit, confirmed that the door is properly latched and restart unit. If it proves to be ineffective, then the unit may possibly have more serious issues such as; wiring failure, faulty door latch assembly or control board. I would strongly recommend contacting a local professional for further diagnosis should all troubleshooting measures fail. You can often locate qualified services by visiting the manufacturer website.

If you reset the unit from the household circuit breaker and it doesn't change, then contact a professional to have the main control board repaired.

My dishwasher is dead...it stopped mid cycle and nothing happens when I push the buttons. I've already checked the circuit breaker and that is fine.


Will need the full model number.

If you are not getting any lights and displays and the circuit breaker is ok then most likely the internal thermal fuse is blown. This is usually located inside the control panel behind the switches.

New LG Dishwasher Suddenly has no power


My LG dishwasher purchased in '06" began giving me IE errors,
so after talking with replacing the circuit board & the overflow switch it still didn't work.
I inspected the wire harness closer which os located behind the door and found the wires weere heated and frayed. Now I need to replace it but I feel that the problem will be resolved once I replace the main harness. There ar emany issues I read about nightmares with LG so I will not buy them again!!

Dishwasher won't turn on - HELP


The dishwasher should have a thermal fuse mounted to the control board behind the operator console. It is a small silver colored device attached to a white plactic bracket. In some model dishwashers the wrong gage wiring was used causing the wires to heat up and trip the thermal fuse. There was no apparent risk of fire or anything like thta, but the thermal fuses didn't tolerate the heat differential too well. A fix for the problem was to purchase a thermal fuse replacment kit (found at most appliance repair stores) that had thicker wires. If you post back with your model number (located inside the door opening somewhere) I can do some reasearch to be sure. And...I'll see if I can locate a part number for you. Let me know.
