SOURCE: Dishwasher will not run. I have checked the

Hello there:
My dishwasher will not work at all. Investigate these four areas if your dishwasher is not working at all:

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.


Door Switch

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.


Cycle Selector Switch

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.

Timer Motor

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.

These control boards do not have fuses on them. I opened mine up when the front panel touch pad stopped working and the LED indicators were anemic. This is a sign of the ribbon cable connections have oxidized. The ribbon cable connects the touch pad to the control board.
Others have written up nice solutions on similar Maytag diswashers with the touch pad.
http://www.fixya.com/support/t387192-maytag_quiet_series_300_no_power_touch

The previous expert shows that you can diagnose this by using a 10k resistor and connecting pin 6 and 10 on the ribbon cable connector and it will start the dishwasher (you have to trip the door handle and carefully do this with the power on). This proves that the control board is fine and ribbon cable connections are the problem. Don't forget to quickly trip the door latch once the dishwasher starts.

My solution was to purchase a contact cleaner called Deoxit. You can order from RadioShack.com or get at Frys. Spray Deoxit on both the ribbon cable end (removed) and into the connector on the control board. Deoxit removed the oxide on the connectors. The twin pack Deoxit spray comes with a solution that helps prevent corrosion. I am 1 day into the successful repair of this model Maytag dishwasher.

Previous people have suggested heat and steam get into the control board and oxidize this connector. I notice on the top right where the control board sits, there is a gap to allow steam to get into the door/control board area. I used bathroom caulk to seal both sides of the door to hopefully prevent further corrosion.

Light panel fully lit stopping program selection and start does a electronic part need replacing


I would suspect the user interface panel.

Most dishwashers can be tested thusly:

Turn off power to the dishwasher at the circuit breaker box. Take apart the Dishwasher door and unhook the cable from the User Interface panel to the main control board. Then, turn the power back on and close the dishwasher door so it latches. The drain pump should go on. If it doesn't the main board is bad. If it does, it's the user interface panel.

Elctrolux dishwasher won't start, display won't light. Any suggestions?


Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Electrolux dishwasher, model# EWDW6505GS, seems like it is not receiving power to the control panel. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging your appliance or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 20-30 minutes. Restore power and try any cycle. If you are still not receiving any lights, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine what is causing your control panel to not have power.. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Try reseting it by unplugging it. Also is there any display lights on (troubles). If that dont work it might have fried the circuit board in the black out.

My dishwasher was in the middle of a cycle and it just quit. The buttons dont light up. It doesn't turn on at all. What could be wrong with it?


Sonya, have you checked the circuit breaker in your home's circuit breaker panel to see it has been tripped? Also, is the dishwasher door tightly shut? If the breaker is tripped, reset it to see if the dishwasher trips it again. If it does, either breaker is faulty or the dishwasher has a short circuit in the electrical circuitry. You'll need an authorized service person for that.

Had a power failure from bad weather now the dishwasher is dead? checked the fuse box the breaker is fine, there are no lights on the display panel. what is the reset procedure for this dishwasher?


Try turning the breaker for the dishwasher off for 30 seconds and turn it back on. This should reset the dishwasher control board. If it still doesn't work then most likely the power failure burned up the main control board. The control boards in the newer dishwashers are sensitive to any type of power surges or failures.

Hope this gets it running for ya.

No power or lights in the front panel


Check the fuse / circuit breaker inside washing machine. There may be a extra control circuit fuse normally on the control PCB.

Dishwasher does not turn on. it is plugged in but


These are just some possible solutions that are worded for general assistance, I'm sure you have checked many of these things but others may not have;

The circuit breaker in the electrical panel may need to be reset. Hopefully it is labeled and will be easy to find without cycling power to everything else in the house.

The dishwasher may be on a GFI (ground fault interruption) circuit. The outlet may have a reset button on it that needs to be pushed or the circuit breaker in the electrical panel may have a built in GFI that needs to be reset.

Many dishwashers are installed with a light switch in the vicinity of the unit that is used as a disconnect. The light switch will cut power to the dishwasher if turner off. The switch is sometimes above the counter and sometimes below the sink.

There is also the possibility of a faulty On/Off button or dishwasher circuit board.

Washer stopped mid-cycle, water in the bottom of the tub. Circuit breaker popped due to over-load. Reset breaker and it immediately popped again. Could this be cause by a jam in the grinder assembly?


My dishwasher just quit mid cycle. (still has water in it) It is a whirlpool partner 1. I checked the breaker and it wasn't tripped... but i reset it anyways. When I tried the dishwasher again it worked for a second and turned off. I have done reading about the thermo fuse but can't find it. Not sure how big of a problem this is.
Dishwasher is 5 years old.

Thanks,
Dale

GE Profile PDW7880G00SS Dishwasher will not Start


Re: My dishwasher start light flashes and the timer display is blank.

That is a fault condition, if the display is blank it is probably a faulty control board.

Unplug the appliace from main, or trip circuit braker to cut power for ten minutes.

If display is still blank on startup, then replace the timer control assembly.
