Dishwasher not working again

Hi. My Kenmore dishwasher is giving me a lot of trouble. One day it will start and run fine, while the next day it will not do anything until I reset the breaker several times. I have tried some of the suggestions and one worked yesterday, but now the dishwasher will not start again today. The sequence I used was, Sanitize---Normal wash, Sanitize---Normal wash then Start/Cancel. After several tries, the dishwasher started working and ran thru the cycle. Today, only the Air Lock button is lite. Any suggestions?

Kenmore dishwasher wont turn on seems to have no power.

Check the breaker in your breaker box, it may have tripped. Reset it and run the dishwasher. If it trips again, have the dishwasher looked at by a professional service person.

Dishwasher stopped working..!!..!! please help

Hi crystal245,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: GE Nautilus Dishwasher suddenly stopped working. NOTHING!! it was fine one day then went kaput the next. I checked the plug in and the circuit breaker but still NOTHING

I run into this often. Ends up being loose, broken or burnt ellectrical connection in d/w junction box most of the time. It's under the d/w behind the kick plate on the right or center. Turn the power off first and remove the wire nuts. Replace wire nuts and/or repair wire ends as nessessary. Beyond that you're looking at a bad control board or failed connection in the unit.

Feel free contact me again!

Airgap spills over onto sink every time we run the dishwashers

Hi Jose31,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: Kenmore Elite dishwasher.airgap spills over onto sink every time we run the dishwashers. what to do?

This is very common! In most states the airgap is no longer required for this very reason. It's one of those ideas that looked good on paper. In my state I remove it. If you have to keep it, thats OK. All is not lost. The real culprit is crud buildup in the airgap discharge tube. You would have to remove it and clean it and the fittings. And next year do it again. May not be as simple as it sounds. You might consider utilizing our Repair Directory to find a repairman.

Feel free contact me again!
