I checked the power at the dishwasher and the circuit panel, all is working correctly. The dishwasher will not start on a cycle when you turn it to wash, it does not make any noise. I also checked the water supply. When you turn it to off the clean light comes on. What is the problem, the dishwasher has only been installed for approximately 6 months.
I had the exact same problem. Slamming the door didn't help, but taking the door cover off did. Some of the wire connections were lose and when I plugged them in fully - PRESTO it worked!!! Our dishwasher was only 7 months old, THANKS FOR THE HELP!!! Vince.
I slamed the door and it could not work for me. Then,
I unscrewed panel and moved the door latch up and down a few times. Shut the door and the washer could recognize that it has been "closed".
This problem occured is probably due to my habit that does not tightly close the door daily until washing.

Re: dishwasher will not turn on/ start cycle
I would ck incoming power at hook-up behind the lower access panel. maybe a wire nut loosed, if power present there next i would check the door latch switches, if they are not making contact with striker, or switch has gone bad, the machine is not recognizing the door closed and will not operate

Hello Rich - From what you have described if only some cycles are working, then there seems to be a communication problem coming from the main control panel, I would suggest contacting a professional technician to diagnose the unit.
There are four components to check if your washer will not turn on at all. You need to check your power supply, the door switch, the cycle selector switch and the timer motor.
Am suspecting the power supply, Your dishwasher may not be receiving any power. It is somewhat difficult to check for power at the plug outlet because the plug for a dishwasher is usually behind the unit. You should make sure all the circuit breakers of your circuit breaker panel are in the correct positions, or check to make sure no fuses of your house fuse panel are blown.
That should do the job for you. Hope this helped you.
Open the dishwasher door if the desired cycle does not perform as selected on the control panel. Press the main power switch "Off" and then "On" again. Select a cycle, press the appropriate button, press "Start" and close the door. Make sure the door is closed completely.
Check the circuit breaker and water supply if the dishwasher does not start after selecting the appropriate cycle on the control panel and shutting the door.
Turn "Off" the dishwasher and disconnect the dishwasher from the power supply if an error code between "E01" and "E30" appears on the digital display. Reconnect and turn the dishwasher "On." This should reset the control panel.
Terminate a program on the control panel by holding the "A" button and pressing "Start" at the same time. The display will read "0:01". Close the door to start the program sequence. The display will read "0:00" when finished.
My dishwasher will not work at all.
Investigate these four areas if your dishwasher is not working at all:
dishwasher may not be receiving any power. It is somewhat difficult to
check for power at the plug outlet because the plug for a dishwasher is
usually behind the unit. You should make sure all the circuit breakers
of your circuit breaker panel are in the correct positions, or check to
make sure no fuses of your house fuse panel are blown.
A properly functioning door switch will shut your dishwasher off when
the door is opened. A defective door switch may not allow your
dishwasher to operate at all. Examine the door switch and test it. If
it is inoperable, it will have to be replaced.
It isn't very common, but it is still possible that your dishwasher's
cycle selector switch has become defective. Test the switch to
determine if it is the cause of your problem. Replace it with a new one
if it is.
Your dishwasher timer will not function if its motor is defective. And
if your timer is not functioning properly, then the dishwasher itself
will not function properly. Test your dishwasher's timer motor, and if
it is broken, you can replace either the entire timer assembly or just
the timer motor.
I may have the solution. Husband just turned off power to dishwasher via circuit breaker. Waited around 30 minutes.
Restored power and Triton came back with normal lights.
I just ran a cycle and all was well. Hope this helps you.
My fingers are crossed because I don't know what happened but did read on another site that this should be the first thing you try before expen$ive repairman.
Reply back if it works!
It sounds like the thermal fuse in the control console has blown.
Turn power off to unit.
Remove the outer door panel and then the console.
Remove the black plastic cover from over the circuit board if it has one.
You should see the thermal fuse clipped to the circuit board housing.
If you have an ohm meter, check for continuity across it, it should read closed.
If you don't have a meter, unplug the wires from it and and hook them together.
Turn power back on to unit, hold door switches down and cancel cycle. The washer should drain the water.
If this doesn't work, check your door switches to make sure they are closing properly.
