Question about Dishwashers
No matter what brand it is the unit must have been hooked up power to ground to make a spark when turned on.
they dont have a fuse to protect them, but what may have happend is you could have shorted out a door switch.
be sure that you hae the wiring correct now and that your house fuse or breaker is on.
the wiring is very easy to hook up as black to black, white to white, and bare wire to ground.
i dont see how your husband could have done that wrong, but anything is possible.
recheck the power to the unit and just hope thats all thats wrong.
if you are sure power is good, then something in the unit has shorted out.
