No lights no power

Obviously some sort of electrical problem. I switched the breaker on and off -- didn't help.
Last night the dishwasher worked. Today it doesn't.
Any ideas?

    My dishwasher is not starting up. I think someone tried to help and pushed too many buttons. Is there a reset button?? Already tried turning the breaker on and off, nothing changed. One of the buttons is still lit up, but it doesn't change any of the functions.

    no lights on control panel, checked breaker and breaker not tripped. Dishwasher is only 1 year old.

    Twice we've lost "power" to the unit and holding down the power button would not reset it. We've switched off the breaker and back on again but still it doesn't help. It will eventually come back on its own and we're not sure why. Last night we had a different but similar problem where we could not change any of the settings or start a load. It's as if the buttons are frozen. After trying all of the breaker flipping, opening and closing, and holding down buttons we gave up. This morning I got up and it was back to normal and I was able to run a load. Very frustrating!!

    I have been having the same problem. The first time, it was off for three days. When I finally called Electrolux, the darn thing magically came back on while I was on the phone. The tech person told me that if it happened again, I should hold my hand over the control panel for 30 seconds to reset it. Well it happened again today, and I held my hand over it for 30 seconds and even longer a couple times, but it did not help. Of couse it's a holiday and the customer support line is not open. It definately sounds like a design flaw to me. I'm very frustrated. Oh, I hate my Electrolux microwave too (love the range though).

Check on/off switch. Ours was left on for an extended time and now there is no lights no power. When we do turn it on it shuts of the power box. Husband checked on/off switch and it is burnt out. waiting for price on new switch.

Why has my dishwasher stopped working completely?,

Sounds like it isn't getting power. Check the circuit breaker that controls the circuit the dishwasher is wired into.

Make sure that the circuit breaker didn't trip, if it's a new device, it could be that just too many things are on the same circuit.

We have a GE profile dishwasher. It worked fine last night. Tonight we loaded it and closed the door. Its like it dosent power up.

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 re

Dishwasher will not turn on. Last night I started

You need to measure with a voltmeter for 115 Volts at the electrical box under the washer front. Breakers can fail, yet look ok. This will check the breaker output and all of the wiring in between. There may also be a local circuit breaker that tripped.

Whirlpool Dishwasher Not Working

Change the thermal fuse in the control and door switches. The thermal fuse is designed to fail if there is a problem with the switches.
