Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU43 Built-in Dishwasher
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 :)

Power to the on/off switch OK. Press on and nothing happens
