I have a Bosch SHU9955US/14 (Integra) dishwasher. There is currently a 0 with and asterisk showing on the display and the unit will not run.


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Thermal Fuse If the dishwasher won't start the thermal fuse might have blown. The thermal fuse helps to prevent damage to the dishwasher by turning off power so that it doesn't overheat. Once blown, the thermal fuse will have to be replaced for the dishwasher to work.

Door Switch The door switch, or switches, are sometimes called interlock switches. The door switch prevents the dishwasher from running while the door is open. If the dishwasher won't start, the switch or switches might be defective. To access the door switches, remove the control panel or inside door panel - depending on the model. They can be tested for continuity.

Main Control Board The main control board provides power to nearly every component of the dishwasher. If the dishwasher won't start the main control board might be defective. YOU should first check for more common parts. Many times control boards are replaced unnecessarily because the problem was not diagnosed properly.

Touchpad and Control Panel If the touchpad is defective, the control board might not get the signal for the selections made. If the dishwasher won't start and the display doesn't seem to change properly when the buttons are pressed, the touchpad might need to be replaced. On some models the touchpad and control panel are sold together and will need to be replaced at the same time.

Touchpad If the touchpad is defective, the control board might not get the signal for the selections made. If the dishwasher won't start and the display doesn't seem to change properly when the buttons are pressed, the touchpad might need to be replaced.

Timer The timer allows power to flow to the proper parts at the proper times. If the dishwasher won't start, the timer might be defective. Keep in mind that timers are often misdiagnosed as the cause of a problem. Check other components first before replacing the timer.

My Beko MW5104 is frozen and does not respond to any settings. It is permanently on at spin/end with the green light on. I can switch it on and off. I have unplugged it from the mains and switched it off...

Dishwasher starts but won't run through entire cycle.


See my problem and solution. Sounds like you, too, are having a problem with the main control board (computer chip that controls the dishwasher), which is apparently a common problem with this model dishwasher. The part can be found here, for $211 (tax + shipping), and they have a 30-day return policy in the event that it does not fix the problem. It's an easy DIY fix. Hopefully this helps!

My dishwasher won't start at all


There could a number of reasons why it won't start but start with the locking mechanism first. Make sure the locking mechanism is in the "Locked" position. It will be the lever at the top of the door. If that isn't the problem try describing everything you have tried and post your question again.

Mod..#17779 dishwasher problem: Lock On lite will not go off so you can start the dishwasher. I push tyhe no-heatbdry, but still won't go off.


Hi

First make sure that nothing is blocking the drain pump assembly located inside the lower front panel of the dishwasher. If the issue returns after its cleaned then try to reset the dishwasher control by pressing the NO HEAT DRY button and hold it for 15 seconds, if its still not resolved then it means that the control board has gone bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Latch won't close on dishwasher


Possible that the latch has gone out of aligment in which case you can remove the front cover or look through the bottom, you can move you hands up to sense the lock so as to get the postion corrected.Use some degreasing spray like WD40 to clear off dirt in the latch

The lock symbol light is on and the dishwasher won't start


To prevent children from accidently changing the

dishwasher cycle or starting the dishwasher, lock

the dishwasher controls by pressing and releasing

the DELAY START pad (some models) or the AIR

DRY pad (some models) for 3 seconds. An

indicator light on the lock graphic pad will illuminate

when the controls are locked and no new

selections can be made until the lock is released.

To unlock the controls, press the DELAY START

pad or AIR DRY pad until the indicator light goes
out

My dishwasher won"t wash. Help me, PLEASE???


Try pushing and holding the "Air Dry" button for at least 4 seconds. This should turn the control lock off.
