Hi!

Most common d/w power is 120 volts, check for 120 volts with a volt meter at the main power harness where it enters into the dishwasher, you will have to remove the lower access panels to get to the power box. Dishwashers also have at least one and most newer dishwashers have two door switches that must be checked. You will find then behind the console at the door latch area. Please see this picture of what the dishwasher switch looks like.

Please rate this solution as Fixya if found useful.

Please ask for any clarifications.

Thanks

Usually when there is intermitent power like that there is a bad connection under one of the wirenuts. Remove the timers, untwist all wirenuts and start over.

I have a single dish drawer and it was working completely fine yesterday but today it wont turn on, there are no lights, nothing, no amount of button pressing is working please help


Assuming the circuit breaker at the mains is ok, you have a faulty power board or the thermal fuse in the heater assembly is blown.

To replace you will have to take the drawer out of the housing making sure you don't pull the hoses and the wires too hard.

Parts are available at heater and power board.

Had a power cut today,top draw does not power up


I am assuming you lost power to the house while the dishwasher was running. The power is back but ou are not able to start the top drawer. Is that correct?

Was the top drawer operating at the time the power went off? Are you able to pull the drawer out?
Do any lights turn on when you press the Start button?

Why is it dead?


Check power at the source; there could be a tripped breaker. If power is getting to your dishwasher, there may have been sudden failure of a part, such as the heater.

No power to dishwasher


Do the following:
  1. Check the power from the wall outlet or the branch circuit itself.
  2. Check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.
  3. Check the wiring connections of the dishwasher from the house wiring.
  4. Check the door switch. Remove the control panel cover or the interior liner of the door whenever it is applicable. Replace if defective.
  5. Check the timer or selector switch. replace if defective.

DISHWASHER WONT STOP UNLESS YOU MANUALLY TURN IT OFF


Wow, I am just wondering is the water inside the dishwasher warm or hot? Or is it cold? IF it is cold it could be that the unit is trying to heat the water usually to 120 degrees.If it is hooked up to a cold water valve from your house this could be the problem. Or it is the heating element,.

Had the same problem, removed the kick panel to find a set of instructions under the insulation, had to push a sequence of the panel buttons, its been running great for a couple of weeks now!
