Question about Dishwashers
If it is a US dishwasher for the home, it should be a 120vac unit.
Check the power cord for shorts.
If the unit is worth the repair cost, have a appliance repair check the unit.
Alkso, you can not use a extension cord of any length to run trhe unit.

The wash tank heater is likely the issue.Remove the 2 wires on the heater and tape them up and run a cycle,let me know.

Take this from a 4 board and 9 fuse owner.I believe the ceramic thermal fuse does not blow quick enough and during voltage spikes,or under a load cause overheating of the control board.All my boards had burnt marks on the back of the board(apposite where the 4 prong plug goes).I purchased a new board ,new ceramic fuse with the wire.They say the wire must be replaced too.(Ebay under Whilpool dishwasher fuse 14.00) Next on Ebay I purchased a 15 amp marine push button circuit breaker which I mounted in the side of the front panel.Split the one leg going to the ceramic fuse,run it to one of the legs of the breaker and run the other side of the breaker leg back to the ceramic fuse.I know someone out there is saying you don't need the ceramic fuse if you have the breaker in the line.Humor me.Lets say you get a large surge that fries the breaker closed as in a lightning storm.The ceramic fuse may save the day.Since I have set ours up this way the breaker trips once in a blue moon.Reset it and your off and running again.Oh and don't bother calling Whilpool(makers of Kitchenaid) You can't get anywhere with them.Now if for some unfortunate reason this doesn't solve your problem,don't throw away that dishwasher.Remove the upper and lower baskets,bolt them to the trunk of your car and the next time you go to the car wash bring your dishes with you.LOL

I have a bosch dishwasher model 2046. When you try start the cycle you hear the timer inside start to activate but the cycle doesn't start. The light in the start switch does not come on as well but I think it may be burned out. We have checked the breaker and I seems to have power.

The problem seems to be water seepage into the electrical contact.
If the heater has lost its insulation this problem could accur
( element to body )
Disconnect the heater and give a try without any load and soap. If it
performs OK , you have to check the heater by removing from the
machine. Mainly I suspect water seepage into the electrical system.

Sounds like the motor or something overloads the circuit.
You could always call a repairman...but with the prices on these at Lowes or Home Depot, it might just as well to replace it.
I always take the price of an appliance and divide it by the years of service to see how much it costed me to use each year. I know, sounds crazy...but if ya spend $300 on a washer and only get 3 years out of it...then it costed you $100 a year...6 years you're down to $50 a year.
(These days, if you get 5 years out of an appliance...you're on borrowed time. They just don't make appliances like the "Admiral" that grandma had.)
