  • tisselfied Feb 27, 2008

    Thanks for the advice, but it did not work. I had left it unplugged all night still nothing. I have a maytag quiet series 300. Some of the lights will come on but I cant change from light wash to normal wash. When I try to start it nothing happens. Hopefully you can give me something else to try.

    Put a new lock on and now it won't start. Press rinse only button, that comes on, but when we press start that light doesn't come on nor does dishwasher.

Good day to you... my name is Dean
Are you able to program or change any functional features press other cycles...? If not, try un-plugging the dishwasher (usually location is under sink) if not find which breaker in the electrical panel will and open circut. Some dishwashers have a "lock" feature purposely to prevent children from toying with panel. You would need to provide more info for us on that one. Brand and model number would help. Sometimes, Electronic control panels can become statically charge, so by shutting down the electricity supplied to the unit for about 2 mins. and then restoring power, can be a simple solution. Let's hope so anyway, because it can get a lot more complicated, if not, and that's not supposed to be the way a Monday's supposed to start the week off, for anyone..

At this point about the only suggestion would be that either the latch switches in the door are defective or the electronic control board would need to be replaced. Sometimes the (what we would call the ribbon) the connection where the touch pad and control meet, that may not be making good contact (but that's rare) at this point, unless you have had some type of prior experience, it would probably be best to contact a repair person.. my apologies for not getting back sooner, I was in the field yesterday, was a long day.

My Prima LPR660 will not start even though all the lights are on


It is likely the door latch microswitch is faulty and preventing the controller from confirming if the door is shut or not. Or it is possible the door latch mechanism is preventing door from shutting. It looks like this.

Bosch Logixx won't start - Stuck on "Close the door" even though door is closed.


Open the door, look along the top stainless on the door and you should find the ENr number (model number) etched into the stainless, may need to give it a wipe and look at an angle to read it. Post the ENr and that should help with diagnosis.

Kenmore dishwasher will not start


The most probable cause is the door latch (or switches in the latch) are not working right, and the controller thinks the door is open, even though it is closed.

I start the dishwasher and it does nothing and lights do not turn on either


When your dishwasher won't start, it could be a problem with your electrical panel or the door might not be closing properly.

Check your household electrical panel for a tripped breaker or blown fuse. Also check to make sure the door latches closed properly.

For additional troubleshooting steps you can take and things you can do, read Dishwasher won't start for more suggestions. I hope this helps!

Our dishwasher is blinking CL - i think this means 'Close'... Even when the door is properly closed, it blinks CL and won't start!! Help!


Hi


Error CL appears when the dishwasher control detects door switch is open or door is open. You'll have to open the door and check the continuity of the door switch. If the door seems to be closed then it is the control has detected an issue with the door latch. Check the door latch & seals to make sure door is closing fine. Unplug the dishwasher from power outlet and wait for 10-15 minutes. Restart the dishwasher and check if the error is still there. If error still appears then you'll need to repalce the door switch/door latch. Hope this helps... Please post back for further assistance.

Pl refer user manual. In general flashing light may mean : no water flow, salt chamber empty, door not closed etc. It all depends on the error code message designed.assigned by the manufacturer.

Kitchenaid dishwasher KUDS02SRSS2 start light blinking won't start


I have this same kitchenaid model. It would not start after selecting the wash cycle and pressing start. The light would blink as if the door was open. I did the reset by pushing the sani-rinse, heat dry, sani-rinse, heat-dry and closing the door. You can hear something going on inside. After that stopped (about 3 minutes). I was able to select the wash cycle, press the start, close the door, and it started. Good luck!
