Briva In Sink Dishwasher Stopped Working!

Hello. My Briva dishwasher was working fine and now nothing. My husbands volt meter shows 120amps however nothing happens. The board that lights up when you choose a wash doesn't light up, it makes no noise, nothing. When you plug it in, the only thing that happens is it shows electricity getting into it with that meter. Does anyone have any ideas or know if it could be the temp fuse? Or perhaps something more involved? Thanks so much for your time and experience.

With a dead unit like that it could be pretty indepth but eliminate the easier things. The unit sould have a fuse that can be checked.

When dishwasher is emptying it is backing into sink

there is probably nothing wrong with Dishwasher itself.
Your Sink drain is stopped up or your Garbage disposal is clogged.
usually, dishwasher drain is connected to the Garbage Disposal, but if the dishwasher empties the water into the Garbage disposal, if its clogged then water will come out of the sink. Same if sink is clogged between sink and sewer.

If you fill up your sink and then water drains away, then you know your sink itself is not the problem. If its only the Garbage disposal side that does not drain, its the garbage disposal that is clogged.

Kenmore dishwasher water stopped coming in

Check the valve under your sink. If that's on go to the dishwasher. Remove the bottom panel. Locate the water inlet valve (usually on the left hand side. Pull the two wires from it and put your voltmeter on it. Start the dishwasher and watch the meter. If it shows 120v then the valve is bad. if you don't get 120v, the board or timer is bad.

Hi there. My Maytag MSE 760 FARS dishwasher is not filling, but the heating element is working. I suspect the pump has failed. What do I do?

what you can check,

  1. the float in the tub.their may be something caught under it
  2. the water valve,use a meter set to check ac voltage and check for 120 volts ac at the plug to it,if has 120 when supposed to fill valve is bad so long at it has water supply to it
  3. the float switch,use meter set to lowest ohms setting and remove the 2 wires on float switch and check for continunity(zero ohms) if meter reads OL replace float switch
  4. the control,check for 120 volts ac to float switch when supposed to fill, if 120 at fill portion yet no fill ,replace control
  5. water supply,if uses flex tube something in cabinet under sink may have pinched water line
Good luck,i hope this helps

Dishwasher will not start.

You more than likely have a faulty motor on your dishwasher.  This would be the main motor that pushes the water through the spray arms inside the dishwasher.
There should be a tech sheet behind the control panel of your dishwasher or maybe behind the lower kickplate.   This will give you the readings for the motor so you can test with a volt meter.
Give this a look first.  If the motor tests good then you may be looking into replacing the timer.
Thanks, Bill

Plumber fixed the sink, now dishwasher is broken

sounds like the water is off, too coincedantal to brek after the plumber is there, the hot water under the sink is where the water supply to d/w is. obviously youre hot water at sink is working, there shloud be a sperate on/off valve for the d/w somewhere nearby
