As this is a serious electrical fault (live fault to earth) I would have an engineer check it over before using again.

I start the dishwasher and it does nothing and lights do not turn on either


When your dishwasher won't start, it could be a problem with your electrical panel or the door might not be closing properly.

Check your household electrical panel for a tripped breaker or blown fuse. Also check to make sure the door latches closed properly.

For additional troubleshooting steps you can take and things you can do, read Dishwasher won't start for more suggestions. I hope this helps!

My maytag dishwasher apparently blow a fuse in Fuse Box. I then throw the switch it worked ok, next day or two my wife try to start the dishwasher it would not turn on. I bought new fuse to put in...


Hello,

It seems you may have an Electrical Insulation Break Down fault with your machine.
My suggestion would be to get a Registered Appliance Technician to test the internal circuit of the machine before attempting to switch on the appliance or rectify any fuses.
The appliance needs to be issued with a (PAT) test first to determine if the appliance is safe to touch when applying power to the machine so you dont electrocute your self.
Once the (PAT) test has been applyed then the technician can visually inspect the high voltage internal parts that could be the result of the insulation break down.
I strongly suggest if any kitchen appliance trips the main fuse for any reason I would recommend not trying to change any fuses as this second atempt to reboot the machine may have blown the machines 'Power Control Module'!

When switched on trips main fuse. have checked fuse in plug, filters etc are clean and it is not the socket.


Sounds like there is a short in the electrical circuitry of the dishwasher -- could be the motor.

Probably best bet is to have it serviced by a tech.

When we switch the dishwasher on it trips the electricity. It's worked fine for 2 years but now won't work at all and just trips the electricity.


Your dishwasher has a serious electrical safety fault which is causing the protective breaker to trip (although it may have a simple and cheap cause). With all due respect, your question clearly demonstrates that you lack the knowledge and skills to carry out a diagnosis and a safe repair (especially vital for anything which uses water and electricity). Before doing anything else, fully disconnect your machine from the main electricity supply by either unplugging it or for a machine connected to a flex outlet by turning off the wall switch and then removing the fuse.

Sorry, but in this instance you only have two choices: get a qualified dishwasher repair engineer in or replace the machine. Anything else could be lethal.

I have a Bosch she44c dishwasher that I used just this morning. This afternoon I went to turn it on and a fuse in the panel box tripped. Is there something in the dishwasher that could go bad that...


Hi,

In some cases, the heat element lining wears out and the element shorts out to the chasis of the dishwahser, thus tripping your fuse.

In other cases, the dishwaser leaks water, and shorts out an electrical component.

It is best to get a repairer to check this out for you.

My maytag dishwasher appears dead just after 1 year


You probably have a bad main control or console control unit in there. Turn power off to the machine, be sure that BOTH of your door switches are ok. Unplug your membrane to control panel ribbon cable, then put everything back in place. Leave the door open, then turn power back on to machine. (also, be sure the thermal fuse hasnt tripped while your in the console). After re-appling power, close the door, and wait a few, if the console unit is bad, the machine will go into drain mode (you will here the unit start in drain). If no drain mode, then your control is shorted. You dont have to see any burn marks, etc for one to be bad, in fact, 98% of the boards we replace, dont show any signs of problems. Let me know what you find out.
