DISHWASHER COMPLETELY DEAD

I have pressed the start button on the dishwasher, but nothing happened. No lights came on, no sound at all- completely dead. The model is a Bosch Exxcel. I've changed the fuse in the plug, but made no difference. There seemed to be a large amount of greasy water sitting in the bottom of the washer.

Hi John, and welcome to Fixya. I don't believe the greasy water sitting in the machine has anything to do with the problem, rather it is likely a by-product of the problem. Based on your post, I would start by first shutting off the breaker. Then removing the kick plate ( access panel at the bottom ) and checking the wiring at the junction box for the dishwasher 120vac supply line. Remove the murret's and visually inspect the wire for "resistance burn" and strip the wires back and install new fastener's if necessary to repair. This is actually quite common to find a wire connector come loose due to improper fastening and once the unit is in use for a while the connections heat & cool, become loose from normal operating vibrations and burn up from all the added heat caused by "resistance". The end result is no power to the controls. Check it out and post back what you find. Thanks for visiting "fixya" and please take a moment to rate the solution/suggestion provided here for you. Good luck. Macmarkus :)

My Maytag dishwasher will not run. It is completely dead. Nothing lights up, etc. It is only a few years old.


Many newer dishwashers are wired to a switch on the wall as a means of service
disconnects in new homes. Also I would check the GFCI outlets in the kitchen area
and possibly the bathroom as well to see if they are tripped. (Press the test button and
then the reset button on them to test). The next thing I would check is the breaker
panel to see if the dishwasher is on it's own breaker. And lastly I would check the
connections to the dishwasher itself (after making absolutely sure power is off to the
wiring feeding the dishwasher at the breaker panel). I hope this is helpful.

Bosch SHX99A15UC went completely dead. Circuit


no it wouldn't, this is a common failure on bosch dishwashers. you have either a bad control or a bad touch membrane. parts are fairly expensive and only way to know for sure is to replace one. I usually find that the control panel is at fault most times

My dishwasher will not start. The 3 second button light is on and when I press it nothing happens . I try pressing any other button and nothing works


It sounds like you have "locked" the dishwasher. This was an added feature that most people never wanted since it only seems to be set by accident.

Try pressing the 3 second button and holding it down for at least three seconds. This should turn the light off. Drove us nuts the first time it happened. If it doesn't turn off then I guess it is broken.

It sounds like your dishwasher might be locked. You unlock the dishwasher by pressing the "heated dry" button for three secs. and then releasing it, that should do it.

yes the door has a safety switch that will keep the machine from starting, this is most likely the problem.

I just read this for the same problem: push sanitize, then heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, cancel, then open and close the door. It worked. The dishwasher is running correctly even as I type this.
