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.

It could be either the power supply board or main, if you have a meter pull the back off and find the PSON pin on one of the connectors, with the set off you should see a couple volts or 5 volts, when you push the on button that should change if its on 5 with it off it should drop to about 3 volts if its a couple volts with it off it should go up to 5 if you see that change then the power board is bad, if it doesn't change its the main, both boards can be found on ebay.
Most common d/w power is 120 volts, check for 120 volts with avolt meter at themain power harness where it enters into the dishwasher, you will have to remove the lower access panels to get to the power box. Dishwashers also have at least one and most newer dishwashers have two door switches that must be checked. You will find then behind the console at the door latch area. Please see this picture of what the dishwasher switch looks like.

The most likely cause of the unit is not getting water. If you can remove the kick plate at the bottom and have a voltohm meter you can check: a.the continuity of the solenoid valve at the left front, unplug wireconnector set meter to ohms, touch leads to the terminals if no reading replace complete inlet valve. If you have a reading, then B.Turn on machine, set meter to volts, connect leads to plug, you should have a reading of 120vac. If not, Then the control board needs replacing. If the unit is in warrenty you'll need to contact where you purchased it.
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.
with your volt/ohm meter check for power going to the dishwasher. the power supply is located under the kick panel. the power wire may be shorted out due to poor installation. if you are not comfortable testing power, I would advise calling a professional. If no power is found at the power box (this has a power cord or electrical wire going to it) the problem lies within your house electric. if 120 volts is present, check for power @ the door switch. aftrer that you just need to follow the power wire and see where it stops
If this is a newly built house and new to you the builder may have put a light switch above your counter ,the one you didn't think went to anything, check for that! good luck with it!
Gina, you probably blew a thermal fuse that sits on the control board. Easy fix. Have your husband first check the wiring to the dishwasher. Remove the toe panel and make sure the wire nut connections are good. If that is ok, he will have to remove the inner door screws to get to the control board. Lift out the inner door. Remove the control board cover, it just snaps off. He will see the thermal fuse on the upper right side. I will attach a photo of what it looks like...Catriver...post back
