Hi,

Do not forget to accept the solution, if 100% satisfied from my solution!!

As you are getting the power to the machine, that excludes all issue's that is related with Power from Home.

Now, the procedure for the rest of the troubleshooting :-

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

If the problem still persists, then it would be Control Board. ( Usually the main reason 0.

Let me know, if need further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Check the switch of the door. Most machines will not start the cycle if it does not detect that the door has been closed. Common problem is that the latch switch is sometimes bent or needs to be just reinstalled. Check as well for loose wires. Other problem is the water. Ensure that water is coming out from the source. THe fill valve may not be opening correctly or not opening at all. You will have to check the electrical motor that opens this one called the solenoid.

Call the manufacture it will be under warranty if it's only 6 months old as the machine will have to be torn down to get to the defective switch, just the top will have to come off if your lucky.

Whirlpool front loader washing machine (AWO3361) WONT DRAIN


Remove drain hose from where it connects to the plumbing under the sink/tub. Inspect the spigot. If clogged, clean. If clean, then tilt machine back and remove drum to pump hose from pump. Check hose and also drain pump. Clear any obstructions.

Fisher & Paykel GW703 wont stop!


It sounds like your machine has been programmed to automatically run through the various cycles continuously. Most likely in error.
