Question about Bosch Dishwashers
Dishwasher stopped working. No problems prior to this problem. No lights come on in the control panel. Using a multimeter I've proved that power is getting to the switch on the door, and from there to the circuit board. But no lights come on below the buttons on the door. Looks likely to be the circuit board?!!?? What tests can I perform to test the board? Thanks

Circuit breaker tripped because of fault in dishwasher, which is why it no longer works. Sorry but I can not tell you what dish washer fault is.

Check your thermal fuse. It will be inside the control panel, clipped to the control board somewhere. It's usually a white plastic square piece with two wires connected to it. The fuse should read a short. If the fuse is blown, you will need to replace it. If the fuse reads good, I would suspect you have a control board problem. Make sure you secure power to the dishwasher BEFORE you take any resistance checks, however. Even if the fuse is blown, you could still have live voltage on one side of the fuse. If you cannot find the fuse, there should be a tech sheet with wiring diagrams inside the lower kick plate below the door. This could be a tremendous help you as well. Let me know what you find.

with your volt/ohm meter check for power going to the dishwasher. the power supply is located under the kick panel. the power wire may be shorted out due to poor installation. if you are not comfortable testing power, I would advise calling a professional. If no power is found at the power box (this has a power cord or electrical wire going to it) the problem lies within your house electric. if 120 volts is present, check for power @ the door switch. aftrer that you just need to follow the power wire and see where it stops
If this is a newly built house and new to you the builder may have put a light switch above your counter ,the one you didn't think went to anything, check for that! good luck with it!

on a dishwasher an ohmmeter is almost useless. the best way to check is to look for voltage. at the door switch check for voltage to ground on both sides. if you have 120 on both sides of the switch then follow the wire over to the control board. if you have 120 going into the control board and nothing coming out of the control then you nood to start looking for a broken neutral. however the likelyhood that its the control panel may be a better idea especially if you are hitting buttons and nothing happens. try reseating any ribbon cables

Open your console and check the continuity of the thermal fuse (clipped to the electronic control unit [ECU]).
Post your model number if you're still having problems and I'll try to assist you further.
