Bosch Dishwasher will not power on

We had to shut breaker off for electrical work elsewhere in the house (same circuit that feeds Bosch dishwasher). Now the dishwasher will not power on. We cannot find our manual. Is there a reset button?

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.

I saw my repair man do the following, which you might try...
Open the door and simultaneously press & hold down the power button with the 2 buttons used on your model to "Cancel & Drain." If the unit comes on it now is in self-diagnosis mode. Release the buttons and close the door. The unit should start to fill with water. Press the power button to exit the mode.

Any ideas what I should replace? Do I just replace the control board? Would that one relay cause the whole dishwasher to have no power?


If you have a multimeter set to continuity and see if it burnt out you might be able to replace it at an electronics part place also see if there are any fuses in there

Circuit breakers do fail. You could swap a different 15amp breaker from another circuit to test this hypothesis, or just swap it with a new one. At least this way you'll know it isn't a power supply issue.

No power lg dishwasher


A large dishwasher should have a dedicated circuit breaker in the circuit breaker panel, check to see if the breaker is on, tripped, or off, it should be on. If it is on, remove the panel cover and check for power coming out of the circuit breaker, if there is power coming out of the circuit breaker, check for power at the dish washer. Checking for power at the dishwasher may involve pulling the connector cord if any and check the power outlet for power, if there is no power outlet and the dishwasher is hard wired into an electric box, the electric box needs to be opened and the wires need to be tested for power, involving removing the wire splice nuts or wire nuts. Once the power is verified to the dishwasher and the washer is still with no power, a fuse should be sought inside the dishwasher control panel or that the power feed wires are properly spliced. A voltage testor is needed to test for power. electric shock hazard on live wires, please be carefull or call out a electrician or handyman if power testing skill is questionable.

Start won't work.


Hi,

Thank you for contacting fixya.com.

A check should be made with the volt/ohmmeter to check if voltage is available to the dishwasher wiring. A voltage check is made by setting the volt/ohmmeter on the 150 A/C scale and placing one probe of the volt/ohmmeter on one wire that supplies voltage to the dishwasher. Place the other probe on the remaining wire. The meter should read 110-125 volts. This would indicate that electrical power was available from the circuit breaker panel to the dishwasher terminal box. If there is no voltage at the dishwasher terminal box electrical wires, the problem could be a defective circuit breaker or fuse, house wiring burned or broken from circuit breaker panel to terminal box. If a defective circuit breaker or fuse is suspected, it would be recommended that a qualified electrician perform these repairs.

The electrical consumer unit trips when the dishwasher is on, swicthing all the sockets off in the house. An electrician has told me it could be a number of things, namely a problem with the neutral, some...


You might need to contact a different electrician. Also a different retailer of machines as this one is obviously trying to make a sale. The apparent problem is that the house is wired with all of the outlets in the house on one circuit breaker--a recipe for trouble. Any house with multiple outlets should be divided into zones so that the whole house doesn't shut down if one appliance trips the breaker. A heavy user of power like a dishwasher should have it's own breaker and wiring for that machine alone. The electrician should have load-checked the dishwasher to make sure it is not drawing more than rated power, then suggested that it be wired to it's own breaker and circuit. Any other high power appliances should also have separate circuits (washing machine, microwave, toaster, etc.). Hope this helps!

Dishwasher does not turn on. it is plugged in but


These are just some possible solutions that are worded for general assistance, I'm sure you have checked many of these things but others may not have;

The circuit breaker in the electrical panel may need to be reset. Hopefully it is labeled and will be easy to find without cycling power to everything else in the house.

The dishwasher may be on a GFI (ground fault interruption) circuit. The outlet may have a reset button on it that needs to be pushed or the circuit breaker in the electrical panel may have a built in GFI that needs to be reset.

Many dishwashers are installed with a light switch in the vicinity of the unit that is used as a disconnect. The light switch will cut power to the dishwasher if turner off. The switch is sometimes above the counter and sometimes below the sink.

There is also the possibility of a faulty On/Off button or dishwasher circuit board.

Dishwasher without power


Check the electrical source. Possibly the breaker blew or he plug went bad.

The electrical load varies drastically during a cycle due to heater, motor, etc. If the breaker blew, ONLY reset it ONCE to try as there may have been a serious problem within the dishwasher. ALSO if the unit shares the power with another device that could cause the problem.

Bosch SHU3306UC dishwasher stopped


Make sure you visit the Bosch dishwasher recall website as this model is under the recall with a faulty controller which may cause a fire! Check your model under http://microsites.boschappliances.com/safetyrecall/dishwasher/
then call 800.856.9226 to setup a recall repair appointment. We just found out about this recall and was never notified by Bosch even though we registered our unit after we purchased it...talk about poor customer service! Hope this helps!
