Elctrolux dishwasher won't start, display won't light. Any suggestions?

Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Electrolux dishwasher, model# EWDW6505GS, seems like it is not receiving power to the control panel. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging your appliance or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 20-30 minutes. Restore power and try any cycle. If you are still not receiving any lights, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine what is causing your control panel to not have power.. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Elctrolux dishwasher won't start, display won't light and it randomly beeps

Check continuity of the 4 small wires that connect to the control panel to the control board. They seem to break where they flex for the door to open and close.

The clean button blinks, yet it won't start?

I had the same flashing light problem first the normal wash flashing light then the others. I tried shuting of the breakers but nothing. I tried resetting the panel by pushing normal wash and heated dry simultaneously and nothing. So I took the six screws holding the front panel out and unplugged the ribbon type wires and plug and unplugged it several times to help make a better contact and I was able to get it to work right away. This may not work for all but I worked for me. It is very easy to do and it's worth a try if you're having the same problem. It took me less then 10 minutes. I had the problem for several days and could not use the dishwasher not mater what tried until I did what I described above. Now I have to see how long it lasts.

Asko D3530. Program LED does not come on. Also nothing happens when I push Set, Menu or Start. Tried button on the left (cirle with a I, looks like a reset button?). Checked plug, GFI and circuit breaker...


Welcome to FixYa.

It sounds like you've got a bad power switch or a wire at the power switch or as you described it... (circle with a I, looks like a reset button?) that's the power button, this will require removing the control panel, but I'd check the power at the dishwasher first though...

You'll need to check behind the kick plate at the bottom as opposed to just checking the GFI and circuit breaker. This is something I've seen fairly often with Asko dishwashers.

**Use caution when checking voltages with a live circuit. Turn off the breaker when servicing the unit first**

If you have any reservations or aren't completely confident performing these tasks I suggest calling in a pro, sometimes the $100 or so is worth it.

You'll need a volt meter or multimeter to check for voltage as well as to look for burnt up connections at the terminal block/junction, it'll be pretty obvious if present. This will indicate a wire has been loose and burnt due to resistance, simply cutting it back and refastening it securely should solve the problem provided no further damage was done.

Let me know what you find and I'll try to assist you in any manner I can going forward.

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.

No console lights. Where are the fuses, if they need to be replaced?

There may be fuses in it but first check to make sure the line where it gets its power is 'live.' There is normally a standard outlet (often under the sink) that may be dead. If you find one, plug some other appliance into the outlet to make sure power is available.
Anything located near plumbing is likely to have a GFI (Ground Fault Interrupter) on that circuit and it may have disabled the outlet. If no GFI is visible in the kitchen area, there may still be one in the main breaker box of your home.
Check these things before doing anything on the dishwasher.

Whirlpool DU1100XTPS 9 Dishwasher acts as if no power

Is your dishwasher have a power cord and plugged into a wall outlet under the sink if the answer is yes then maybe the GFI outlet has tripped and all you need to do is reset the button on the outlet

Whirlpool dishwasher du945PWPQ0 won't run, no led lights

If you have used a meter to check that the power circuit is live clear to the connection under the dishwasher then:
It is ~possible~ that (even though it is hard wired) a tripped GFI outlet in the kitchen has tripped and opened the circuit that this diswasher is connected to. Locate all GFI outlets in the house and reset them.
Seperate from that, you have a failed diswasher on your hands. If you have an extended waranty, well done. Otherwise, you need to decide between repair and replacement.

Dishwasher problem Model number GSD2200LO1

No, he didn't do anything wrong. Swithching to energy saver setting only prevents power from going to the heating element during the drying portion of the cycle. I suspect that you have no power going to the dishwasher. Check the household breaker for the dishwasher. If that is not tripped (probably not) then your dishwasher power may be supplied through a GFI (ground fault interupter) protected outlet which has tripped. Look around the kitchen for GFI recepticles, as there may be several. Power may even be fed from a GFI from another room, such as a bathroom. Push the reset on all GFI recepticles you can find. You can purchase a small pen sized tester for under $20 which will show if a wire is carrying power without even thouching an actual wire. Pick one up at a hardware store to help see if power is reaching your dishwasher if you need more help.
