My dishwasher will not power on. I was told to check a switch in the drain pan, and we did (actually felt like small propeller). It actually made noise like it was working. We then killed the power and put the unit back into the cabinet, but now, we can not get it to work. The breakers have been checked and are working properly. Is there a trick to this, or do I have a bigger problem. It was working fine one day, and nothing the next.

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.

If you take the kick plate off from below the door youshould be able to access the base to remove any excess water.Behind your kick board is a plate below the door. Remove theplate. With the power off push a rag into the base plate to soak up the water. Failing that pull out the dishwasher onto the floor and tilt the machine backto allow the water to run outSwitch the water and power back on and restart the programto test.If the appliance is less than 2 years old Neff/Bosch Groupguarantees it
You made have a leak causing the drain pump to keep running, if you never worked on this unit before I would suggest you call a professional. If you have worked on this before then look for water in drain pan to unit, the reason is water has entered drain pan and caused the float to turn on pump, could be from the drain hose, leak in a hose, or the diverter. all this part are located unit unit in access area (small panel under large door).
Good Luck, I hope this helps...
Most Viking models have overflow safety feature that turns the dishwasher into drain mode. The idea is to remove overflow water from the bottom pan. Check the pan behind kick toe panel for water, remove the water and check for leaks. If no water check overflow switch somewhere in the pan, it maybe stuck. Good luck
I had the same problem. Went through every troubleshooting tip I got. Cleaned the catch filter, checked the drain for blockage, checked the impellor to see if it was free. All was fine. Turned power off, turned back on, selected cycle and heard 1) the water drain. 2) the draw of fresh water into machine. ) all became silent and after several minute, the drain light started to flash. After getting frustrated with this isue I called Miele, they did a diagnostic over the phone by having me push a series of buttons on the panel a certain way. My machine was diagnosed by MIELE as having a bad relay switch. I was told 90 dollars plus 175 install and tech visit. I agreed. When the tech arrived he did his diagnostics, he told me MIELE reps on phone were wrong. He told me I needed a new water pump at 385.00 plus 175 install for a total of 560.00 I told him no way would I ever spend 560 + tax to repair a machine that I paid 1900 dollars for and was 4 years old. I told him I would buy a 600 dollar Samsung first before I gave him 600 for a repair. He felt his job was complete and I wasnt buying the pump story. I started questioning various things and brought up what would the appropriate soap and measure amount be for it. I told him we were currently using the Electrasol gel balls. THAT IS WHEN HE SAID, THE REASON FOR MY MALFUNCTION WAS JUST THAT. I WAS TOLD POWDER ONLY IN SMALL AMOUNTS, NOT GEL PACKETS !!!!! The gel was not dissolving completely and gumming up the impellor making it hard for it to spin. 3 weeks later machine has worked flawlessly. If you are using gel PLEASE STOP. Also I was told to squirt rinse aid in the opening under the screen, there is a **** towards the back. Remove handle and screen from inside tub. see a 2 inch wide opening, squirt the rinse aid , a small amount in there and leave overnight. This rees up the gummy residue in there. Manually run your water until its hot. And run a cycle GOOD LUCK !!!
