Test the following steps and fix it. God bless you
Power Supply

The main power supply is the first thing to check. Also remove the toe kick and the cover on the power box and check the connections. Also check the 120 volts at the power box

Hi - Limit Fuse

This will fail if your dishwasher overheats and occassionally with power surges. This is easy to check, inexpensive and a quick fix. Just check the terminals for continuity ( remember always remove one wire) if you have none replace the hi- limit fuse

Door Switch

This is the second place to look. Again an inexpensive easy fix. The following video will walk you thru checking the door switch The power comes into the main power box and usually runs to the door switch next before entering the main control module.

Main Control Module / Timer

The main control module or mechanical timer controls all the functions of the dishwasher. To check this you will need to find the 2 leads that supply the power to the control. They will be marked on the wiring diagram. They usually come from the hi - limit fuse or the door switch. When the door is latched you should have 120 volts entering the main control. If you do not the problem is not the control. If you do have power entering the control but none of the functions work properly or it does not respond at all you will need to replace the control module, this is easy to replace but not very inexpensive to purchase. Consider the age and overall condition when purchasing this part.

Motor

The motor may have failed. If the control illuminates on electronic versions the problem may be the motor. To check the motor refer to the tech sheet located behind the console cover on most models, this will sometimes have the ohm reading of the motor. Also check each lead to the metal housing of the motor to check for shorts in the motor. If you do not have the ohm reading specicifications, check for continuity if none replace the motor. Make sure the motor is receiving power.

Float Switch

If the float switch has failed or is stuck the dishwasher control may not respond. The float switch is easy to check and replace.

SOURCE: My Asko D3121 dishwasher won't turn on. When

Hi.

There is no error code, then check the following:

1)Check that the problem is not overflow.. Remove the lower access panels and check the tray under the dishwasher. If you find it is full of water use a cloth to dry water. Test the overfill switch.

2) Disconnect power, move the appliance forward and check that the drain and inlet hose is OK. Be sure that the machine is filling. THE DRAIN HOSE MUST RUN UP TO THE TOP OF THE UNDERSIDE OF THE COUNTERTOP THEN DOWN TO THE DRAIN. If the hose is not set up like this, water from the sink drain will flow into the dishwasher and overfill the tray.

3) Test the door lock. This can be tested jumping its contacts.

4) If all the rest is OK you may have a defective control module. This is not a common fault. Ensure that all the rest is OK first, wiring and pump motor must be tested before going for control module.

Start checking for overfill, that is a very common fault that may cause cycle not starting

If you want to contact a technician use the number listed on the USE AND CARE GUIDE.

Regards.

Ginko.

please provide the model number of the Samsung dishwasher.
if none of the lights light up, then a fuse might be blown somewhere. If the problem is the start buttion does not start the dishwasher , then the door latch switch could be faulty.

SOURCE: I can't get the control panel to reset. The

II might need the actual model number. However, you can go to page 9 on this manual and check if the flashing options can fix the problem. I am assuming you have already tried to turn the power off and back on.

The ohter thing to try is the reset sequence. Within 6-7 secs press High Temp/ Heat Dry/ High Temp/ Heat Dry/ High Temp/ Heat Dry. All lights should light up, press Start button to exit.

SOURCE: Dishwasher won't drain when cycle

Hi
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Thermal Fuse If the dishwasher won't start the thermal fuse might have blown. The thermal fuse helps to prevent damage to the dishwasher by turning off power so that it doesn't overheat. Once blown, the thermal fuse will have to be replaced for the dishwasher to work.
Door Switch The door switch, or switches, are sometimes called interlock switches. The door switch prevents the dishwasher from running while the door is open. If the dishwasher won't start, the switch or switches might be defective. To access the door switches, remove the control panel or inside door panel - depending on the model. They can be tested for continuity.

Main Control Board The main control board provides power to nearly every component of the dishwasher. If the dishwasher won't start the main control board might be defective. YOU should first check for more common parts. Many times control boards are replaced unnecessarily because the problem was not diagnosed properly.
Touchpad and Control Panel If the touchpad is defective, the control board might not get the signal for the selections made. If the dishwasher won't start and the display doesn't seem to change properly when the buttons are pressed, the touchpad might need to be replaced. On some models the touchpad and control panel are sold together and will need to be replaced at the same time.

Touchpad If the touchpad is defective, the control board might not get the signal for the selections made. If the dishwasher won't start and the display doesn't seem to change properly when the buttons are pressed, the touchpad might need to be replaced.

Timer The timer allows power to flow to the proper parts at the proper times. If the dishwasher won't start, the timer might be defective. Keep in mind that timers are often misdiagnosed as the cause of a problem. Check other components first before replacing the timer.

Start button won't work, but delay does


have you accidently turned on a safety feature stopping the machine from starting? or is the door latches closed fully, if opened slightly could be preventing the machine from starting. or maybe its just a faulty start button.

Kitchenaid kudi01ilwh2 won't start


By won't start do you mean that everything is set ok but when you press Start button then nothing happens.

In that case most likely the door is not sitting properly or the door latch or door switch is faulty causing the dishwasher to not start.

However, if nothing happens on the panel when you press buttons but power is there, then most likely the panel is faulty and can be replaced.

you can trace the parts in these diagrams.
