Question about Dishwashers
When closing the door it would click into place and start the washing cycle. Now door won't catch
Check to be sure the gasket that is between the unit and the door is in its proper palce, it may be knocked out of its normal spot and keeping the door form closing all the way where the latch would engage.

I have the same problem. Having spoken to an engineer I have been told that the controller has gone. £120 for a new one plus fitting. So you are looking at a £200 bill to repair. Not worth it ???

This is very likely due to a bad main electronic control board but the only way to know for sure is to do some electrical testing with a volt/ohm meter and the wiring diagram located within the appliance. If possible use the meter and the wiring diagram to check input/output voltages looking for discrepancies between the diagram and the actual meter readings.

If it's under warranty, get someone to look at it. Probably a bad switch or sensor in the unit, could be something simple, and they're not hard to open up, but the soap dispenser mechanism has to be reassembled (it often falls apart upon taking the door apart). Last resort is the appliance serviceman. New house? New dishwasher? Warranty? That's your best option.

Hello Pat Braley - The issue may lie with the door latch; a door switch is used to start and stop your dishwasher. It's a safety feature that won't allow water to flow with the door open. With a faulty door switch, there is a chance your dishwasher won't start at all. Dishwasher door switches are about an inch long. They are usually black but can be red. There are metal prongs on the body of the switch called terminals. Some door switches have two terminals and some have three. If your door switch is OK, check the timer assembly. This controls when and how long power is sent to other controls on your dishwasher. If these controls don't receive power, they won't work. The timer assembly contains a motor. Check this motor as well. It is often cheaper just to replace the timer motor rather than the complete assembly. My last suggestion is to check the cycle selector switches. These switches indicate cycles for washing, drying, and setting the temperature of the water. If one of your switches is the problem your dishwasher may also prevent the unit to start. Dishwasher cycle selector switches tell the timer which cycle to run by opening and closing electrical circuits. Most selector switches are six to eight inches long. They are usually black and have terminals. By testing each one of these parts with an ohmmeter you should be able to determine why your dishwasher is not working. It is possible for other parts to fail but these are the most common parts to check. If any proves to be ineffective, I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.
