Hello Matthew, thank you for allowing me to assist you!
Let's try reprogramming your dishwasher. This can be done by flipping the breaker off for approximately ten minutes. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, your dishwasher could possibly be experiencing a communication error with the control board/panel or could have a wiring failure. I would suggest contacting an experienced service technician to determine the precise cause.
Hello John - Let's try resetting the dishwasher by either
unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It
is important to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn on the unit. Confirm that the door is properly latched and
try selecting a cycle. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, it
could potentially mean a number of things: a potential wiring failure, damaged
cord, faulty door latch assembly or control board. Because it could be a number
of any one of several underlying causes, I would recommend contacting a
professional to properly diagnose and repair the unit.
If it doesn't run and you have no indicator lights, check the circuit breaker for that outlet. If it is ok, test the output voltage at the plug-in for the machine (115Vac). If it is "live" then check inside the control panel (turn off the breaker first) for a fuse that appears blown. If no fuse problem, CAREFULLY (with breaker back on) see if the main switch is getting power. If it is getting power, the control board is shot...replace it!
Be so kind to add the model and model number to have more info. For the beginning you might want to try the unplug the dishwasher for 30 min. then try again...but if that does not work, you will need to check the control panel.
This is an indication that there was a failure to heat the water properly. I have put together some instructions on how to reset the control so you can use the dishwasher and some things to check to avoid this problem again. Follow the link below and let me know if it was helpful.
Make sure the door is completely closed and latched. On models with a dual-digit display, the control displays "- -" during a cycle if it believes the door is not latched. Check for obstructions (spoons, etc), interfering with the door operation. A lower dish rack that is installed backward will also cause incomplete door closure.
Is there power to the dishwasher?
electricity ground dishwasher. Connect ground wire to green ground connector in terminal box. Donot use an extension cord. Failure to follow these instructions can result in death,fire,or electrical shock.
Check your household electrical box to see if a fuse has blown or if the circuit breaker has tripped. If the unit has a plug-in power cord, make sure it is plugged in.
Does your dishwasher have a rotary timer knob? (Some Models)
The cycle selection must match the position of the timer knob. Turn the timer knob to the beginning of the preferred cycle. The timer knob should click when you reach the start of the cycle.
Is the control lock option activated?
Press and hold the Heated Dry option (button with lock icon) for five seconds and the light should turn off. Instructions are also placed on the label on top of the inner door to unlock the controls.
Is the delay start option activated?
To cancel the delay and cycle, press Cancel/Drain.
Has the motor stopped for less than 10 minutes?
The motor may have stopped due to an overload. If this is the case, the motor will automatically reset itself within 5-10 minutes.
Is the Start/Resume indicator flashing?
Opening the door or interrupting the power can stop the cycle. Close the door and press Start/Resume. If the Start/Resume indicator flashes three times when you press Start/Resume, the dishwasher is waiting for you to open the door after the last cycle. Open and close the door, and then press Start/Resume.
On models where the controls are on top of the door be sure to close the door within 3 seconds of pressing the Start/Resume to start or resume the dishwasher cycle.
Is the water shutoff valve (if installed) turned on?
Make sure that the water shutoff valve is turned on.
If these tips did not work or your controls are not working correctly you may need to schedule service.
