Check for broken wire(s) in the harness at the bottom of the front door (near hinge) where it transits from the inside of door to the lower motor compartment. (Design defect causes metal to cut the harness)

There is a button configuration that you can press to make the unit reset on some you would close the door and push normal wash heated dry then normal wash then heated dry on others it would the econo wash button then heated dry then the econo/ heated dry this pattern starts the unit and then puts it into the drain cycle and resets the control which allows you to start washing again. If you can name off all the buttons you have I can tell you exactly which ones to perform this reset in the unit. I await your reply Rick p.s this also happens on whirlpool models as well right after the warranty runs out so you end up paying the high service charge for a tech to walk in you door push a few buttons then collect a fee over 169.00 which is ridiculous.
This dishwasher does not have an internal fuse in it unfortunately. Check for power to the dishwasher and if it definitely has 120 volts you need to order and replace the touch control at the top of your door on the dishwasher. This part common fails and cuts power to the entire unit.
Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. Power for the water valve comes from terminal 4 of the timer to the float switch through the water valve and then to the door switch before reaching L2 of the power source.
Check for power on Terminal 4 (marked AQ) of the timer. (No power.... most likely a door switch problem) The rest of the circuit you can read continity. You should read continuity from AQ of the timer to one terminal of the power source with the door closed and latched.
If you need more assistance just respond here and I will help you.
You must verify power inside the terminal box on the lower right side of the dishwasher. If a good power connection and power is there,you would next check the door lock switch. If it is bad and does not show continuity on a volt meter,replace it.
Check drain and screen for clogs, check the door switch to make sure it isn't broken or any disconected wires. You can test wiring to and from the switch with an ohmmeter. Try disconnnecting from power source for a few hours, in the meantime, press and hold a start button for 3 seconds, wait half hour more, plug back in and see if resets itself. If none of these work, you could have a fualty control board but testing with an ohmmeter will need to be done to verify
Either the tub bearings seized up or motor seized up. Check power to motor with a voltmeter. Or visually check to see that it is turning. If not, it is bad. Check power to motor to make sure a fuse didn't blow.
Try disconnecting from power source for a few hours, and then try it again.
Sounds like you may have put it together wrong. I would just take the arm back off and make sure that it all fits together right. A little tip for you too. Dishwashers will clog up all the time with water deposits and food gunk. There are all those expensive cleaners out on the market but the best and cheapest way to clean them is with white vinegar. Simply pour it into the dishwasher when it is empty and run it on the pots and pans setting on hot. Always make sure to pre heat your water too by running the sink till it starts steaming. This will make it easier for your dishwasher to heat the water. If you don't, then when you turn on the dishwasher it starts to fill with cold water and has to heat it on its own. Run the vinegar though through it at least once a month or so and it will extend the life of the dishwasher. Hope this helps. Just try taking that arm back off though and putting it back together making sure everything is fitting properly. If you have any other questions feel free to ask me. Good luck.
I just had a similar problem with a GE Triton. Suddenly the lights on control panel went wacky and it wouldn't start. I don't know if this will help you but try disconnecting the power source and wait a bit (this involved turning off the circuit breaker to d/w in circuit box). It cleared up the problem with the control panel and d/w just finished a good cycle. Hope this helps you. It was Step #1 on another site and they said there that this will allow the "computer" to re-set.
