Re: no power at all
Check The following components below 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.
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).
4. Selector switch
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Make sure the unit is on a flat, level surface. If the floor is not level or the carpeting is too thick, the unit will not be level, causing the water in the internal tray to flow to one side. This will bypass the water full safety mechanism and the unit will not automatically shut off.
Check for broken or damaged casters. Check to make sure the casters are installed securely and evenly.
Check and make sure the drain cap and/or the rubber plug is installed. If cap or rubber plug is missing, use a cork. Check and see if the drain is cracked or broken, if so, shave broken drain flat and use a cork. You can use a plumbing adhesive or epoxy to repair the drain.
And regarding that the unit is not powering on i would suggest you with the following things.
Test the outlet that the PAC is plugged into is working. If the outlet is working than the powerplug breaker needs to be replaced. If the wall outlet is not working, there may be too many appliances on one circuit. Recommended circuit is 20amps. You can also administer a power plug check: Power Plug Check
1. Press the RESET button. The reset button may be stubborn so you will need to press HARD to reset it until a click is heard and the light comes on.
2. Insert the power plug into the electrical outlet.
3. Press the TEST button. If the circuit breaker is working you'll hear a click.
4. Press the RESET button until you hear another click. The circuit breaker in the plug is now activated.
5. Do not use the air conditioner if the above procedure cannot be successfully performed.
After switching the air conditioner off, wait 3 minutes before switching it back
In general- flood switch sensor, water level control system/electronic control panel failure; Interrupted drain cycle emptying water.
Depending upon make and model of your dishwasher: check water pan in the base pan; clogged filter; cracked or leaking spray arm; door seal, kinked drain hose; damaged or disconnected wires at the control panel; pressure switch fault; drain pump fault.
If you choose to troubleshoot the problem, make sure you disconnect the dishwasher at the power source; whether it is a plug in the outlet or at the circuit breaker- you'll need a multimeter and various size or type nut drivers, screwdrivers, or sockets; and pliers ~ or else call in a qualified technician.
F4 points at at a drain problem, often the problem is caused by a dirty or defective pressure switch. Before replacing the pressure switch it is necessary to test the drain system.
First try turning power off from circuit breaker for few minutes and see if that is enough to clear the error code.
Turn power off from circuit breaker (or disconnect power cord) and clean the drain well inside the tub. Remove any water present in the tum. Check also the drain hose at the back of the appliance and make sure it is not kinked or blocked.
If that does not work remove the kick panel at the base of the dishwasher, locate the pressure switch and clean the hose connected to the pressure switch. The pressure switch is the device that detects water level, determining when to start and stop the drain pump. The pressure switch is a small plastic switch connected to a long rubber hose. If the hose gets blocked with detergent or if the switch is defective you get f4.
Try resetting the appliance to clear the error code. If that does not work clean and check the drain system. If still no luck check the pressure switch.
Is the inside unit running, if yes is the contactor pulled in outside. If no try locating float switch on emergency drain pan ( could have a clogged emergency pan drain line)
Any further information you could provide could be useful in diagnosing your problem
Refrigerant Standing Pressure
Power at Disconnects for A/C units and if so whats the voltage
Breakers in Electrical Breaker Box (Any Tripped or in the off Position)
Water present in emergency pan underneath Air Handler
What pieces of the A/C Equipment or running if any ( Air Handler, Condenser Fan Motor, Compressor)
How To Clear the Drain Tube Before clearing the drain tube, unplug the refrigerator or shut off the
power at the fuse box or breaker panel to avoid an electrical shock
Your refrigerator has a drain that leads to the exterior drain pan
beneath the refrigerator. Occasionally this drain can become clogged
resulting in standing water inside your refrigerator. A similar drain
exists in the freezer, which when clogged results in ice build up on the
floor of the freezer.
The drain is located either on the floor of the refrigerator,
beneath the vegetable crisper, or in the wall behind a drain funnel.
Clear the drain by forcing a solution of water and bleach or water
and baking soda into it with a basting syringe. If the solution will not
flow through, slide a length of 1/4 inch or smaller flexible tubing
into the drain tube to push the clog through to the drain pan. Remove
the tubing after clearing the clog.
The drain usually connects with a flexible plastic hose to the garbage disposal under your kitchen sink. Run the disposal for a minute to see if that unclogs anything.
Remove the hose and blow into it (use a straw and try to make a seal between hose and straw with your hand because old drain pipes taste really bad if you kiss them directly).
Otherwise, your pump may have gond bad - dishwashers do not drain on gravity alone. they all use pumps. Yours may not be worth replacing unless you are really handy and can do it yourself.
Pumps are available and located on the bottom of the unit. Disconnect drain hose. Disconnect circuit breaker. Remove panel by toe-kick and disconnect electical hard-wired connection. Disconnect water (under kitchen sink). Pull it out from under the counter. Order new pump, install and replace. Be careful with the electricity.
If you can hear the drain pump running but notice no water draining, you simply have a plugged or locked rotor on pump. If you do not hear the drain pump at cycle start (usually at end of wash cycle or when canceling wash cycle). Motor is dead. To access: First disconnect supply power and or breaker. remove access panel and disconnect hoses to input and output side of pump, now inspect and clear blockage or replace motor if dead.
