Dish washer blows the switchboard fuses have to un plug it

Please clarify if the dishwasher had completed the wash cycle before the fuse started blowing up. It is likely there is flooding at the base of dishwasher which causes the mains fuse to blow. YOu will have to take the bottom drawer out to check. see this video on how to take drawer out. The steps are shown half way through the video. Make sure the mains plug is taken out from the socket before you handle the dishwasher.

My diplomat dishwasher will not turn on. I changed the fuse in the plug and it still wont turn on. Theres no lights or anything, it has completely died

Try checking the power supply. It is possible that there is a fault in the socket. 1) Try plugging something else into the socket to check that it is working. or 2) plug your machine into a wander lead that it connected to another socket.

If still no joy, call in a repair man- good luck!

We have apartment size dishwasher which quit before finishing cycle and will not come back on.

It could be any number things that have gone wrong, anything from blown fuses, blown thermal cut-outs, sticky valves....etc.etc. you really need to call in a repair guy to check it.

Have you checked the outlet that the dishwasher is connected to... it may be a bad outlet. (that happens all too often)

My dishwasher doesn't turn on, nothing happens when I push on the start button, it doesn't light up, was working the day before

HI, there are four problem spots that i recommend checking. these are the most common hot spots for a non responsive dishwasher. Check each area thoroughly to address this issue.

1. No power to the dishwasher Make sure there's power getting to the dishwasher. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the dishwasher (inside the junction box, behind the bottom kick panel), if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.
2. Door switch Replace if defective.
3. Timer/control board Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).
4. Selector switch Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Dishwasher won't power up; have checked fuse; no lights coming on, on front panel

Check the house electrical panel for tripped breaker or blown fuse. Check power wiring from washer to wall outlet. Is it a cord that is plugged into a socket, or is it direct wired? If it is a socket, make sure a lamp will light if plugged into the same socket.

I have no power on my dishwasher. I ran an extension cord to another outlet that I know has power and still nothing. I don have any led lights or anything. Can you help. GE model # GHDA960K03BB. Thank...

Few components may cause power failure to your Dishwasher.
1. Disconnect your power plug from the socket outlet.
2. Trace the cord to where it connected to your dishwasher.
3. Tight those connectors firmly .
4. Plug back your dishwasher power cord .Start your dishwasher.
If nothing happen, check if control board came with fuse or bimetal. check the continuity of the fuse., You may also check your latch assembly.If no power still change the console or the control board.

The fuse in the plug keeps blowing. Initially it would run for a while - sometimes 3 or 4 cycles - before blowing. It now blows the fuse the second that I plug in to the socket, even with the on/off button...

Lower the outlet hose into a washing up bowl, it should then Drain. Check the heater to see if it is earthing you get to it by removing the right hand side panel.
