Question about Dishwashers

Diswasher stopped working

Our Kitchenaid dishwasher is only 2 years old and has worked fine since install. Christmas day we did a load of dishes, that same afternoon we loaded it again, but when we pushed on the "normal" cycle, the light did not come on. We pushed start, and nothing happened, and tryed the reset button.
Still nothing works. We checked power to the unit, and it has power up to the control panel.
Can you please help?
thanks unit won't turn on appears as if there's no power but there is power at the unit

There is a thermal fuse on the controller that commonly goes out. If you take apart the panel, and see the computer part, there is usually a part clipped on the side with 2 wires on it. When that goes out, it acts like there is no power to the unit. Very easy and in-exspensive to replace if that's it. It's pretty common on those. Good luck

Sometimes the holes in the arms get blocked up,sweetcorn,rice etc, this then stops the arm spinning and water being sprayed onto plates etc, unscrew it and run water through the centre hole and see what happens.

Brand New Bosch Stopped Working On First Use


No question that it is a warranty problem, you shouldn't consider doing anything on the machine yourself at this point.
After the warranty is dead and it fails, c'mon back and you will likely find someone to help. It is good though, that we are forewarned about Bosch-

No water heater problem. Make sure you are using rinse aid formula and back off the soap to 1/2 of what you were using.
