A couple of weeks my dishwasher wouldn't start. I pushed buttons and nothing happened. The next evening (fortunately before I called a repair service) it started up and worked fine..Three days ago it did the same thing, no lights, no action. I have reset the circuit breaker twice with no results. It is a Bosch SHX46A02UC and only 16 months old. Any ideas?
The door switch is definitely not the problem if the indicator lights are not coming on. These lights are supposed to come on when the door is open.
The problem is 1 of 3 things:
1) No power to outlet that DW is plugged into;
2) Bad connection where power cord is connected to dishwasher (see very bottom front, under kick panel)
3) Some problem internal to the DW (eg., bad switch, shorted wire, etc., )
Our SHX46A is definitely having problem 3, but Bosch's manual gives zero help. So, off to find more info online or, lastly, to call Bosch repair person. Sigh.
1/4/2012 Our non-power problem was the controller. (The circuit board containing the wash cycle buttons). We Just had the service tech out today. Took him all of about 20 minutes. Good thing for us is that part is warrantied for 5 years and ours is 4 but less than 5.
Service call was $94.
IF We would have had to buy the part out of warranty it would have been an additional $98 or so.
Was happy that it was still under warranty but worst case would have been about $200 in this situation.

Hello. You question is partially vague but I will try to give you some insight into possibilities. If you're sure power is reaching the washer(checked the ac connections at the base to make sure 120v is present) then next, are there ANY lights illuminated on the front panel? If there is nothing lit, then there is a strong possibility of a blown main control board and/or user interface(the push-button panel *you* choose options from). Now, if there are lights lit and when you hit start, nothing happens, the door switch could be the culprit--its a safety feature that prevents anything from turning on while the door is open. Sometimes, liquid can get spilled into the opening for the latch and drizzle down into the electric lock mech causing a malfunction. Have you had a power outage recently? If the answer is yes, then the main board or user interface could have been damaged--if the current surge doesn't blow out the appliance immediately, *usually* about 3-4 weeks after the episode things will start happening or *not* happening with appliances due to damaged chips on the boards starting to fail. The user interface board is dd92-00030A. The main control board is dd92-00033a. I hope I helped you!
If this is happening with both the drawers then you may need to get the filter board rechecked. Try to turn the mains power off, take power plug out from mains socket and put back in and turn power back on. If no difference then call the technician who replaced the board. If this problem is with one drawer, then try to clean drawer inside panel with a clean damp cloth and see if you can get the program buttons to work again. If not then a more detailed diagnostics is required.
