If your dishwasher doesn't work at all, check these:

Power from the house
Door switch
Wiring
Timer or selector switch
Power from the house Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.

Timer or selector switch Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.

No power to my dishwasher. I checked the electrical panel. It's fine.


So the panel is fine - so what! Did you check the power line that feeds the dishwasher? Is it directly wired and not plugged in? Did you use a volt meter? Did you check the wiring for bad connections/ breaks?

Our whirlpool dishwash is not cleaning the dishes very well so I pulled it out from the wall and un hooked the electrical and the water lines. After looking at it I hooked everything back together and I...


I've installed many DW's and haven't seen a reset on one. Take in mind, not saying that they're couldn't be one, but I doubt it IMHO. I've been installing all appliances proffessionally for 10 years and it just doesn't seem like there could be one.

Have you check your washing machine plug behind the machine to see if it's a GFCI plug? I've seen it happen where a consumer had done something electrical in the home and it tripped. They bought a new machine and we showed them that it was the outlet, they didn't even know that they had one behind the machine. I know this doesn't help much but good luck in the problem solving.

My dishwasher wont start


Sounds like you need to check for power to the unit. Access is at bottom of dishwasher under panel. Next you will see the wiring coming into an enclosed electrical box. you will need to get to wires and check voltage on black hot wire to neutral with a voltage meter. If you have power but still doesn't work then at least you know the problem is with the unit and not the incoming power.

GE 2200 Dishwasher-no power at all, circuit breakers are fine, switch works


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!
