Dishwasher stopped working, abruptly

It's approx. 5 years old - wife said it smelled slightly like burning - it shuts off the breaker on the main board - removed standing water via shop vac - as soon as you turn on breaker, dishwasher triggers it off - I have no idea - I removed bottom panel but to untrained eye everything looks fine. Model #: KUDP01ILBS6

Hello. Since it kicks the breaker off you probably have a bad motor. The sad reality of life today is that the cost of a major appliance repair is generally not the way to go. Cut your loses and get a new dishwasher. It will be much more economical to operate due to new technology and it will have a warranty. IF you chose to install it yourself, you would be in a new dishwasher for as little as $400. The degree of difficulty on the tear out and reinstall is actually low. The instructions will be excellent if you stickwith a name brand. J.

LG LDF6810ST won't power up there is power going to dishwasher

the main control board is fried from what you've described, you will need to dismantle it and remove the board (there will likely be visible signs of damage if there was a burning smell) relatively easy and cheap to replace

I smell my motor. Is it worth replacing, or buy new?

5 years seems short for a major appliance designed to give 10 years or more of service. I'd say it's worth repairing yourself.

Just make sure it is the motor, then dig a little deeper to find out why it failed. It can be from being bound up because of a jam in the pump, a leak causing the bearings to freeze, or in the case of inductive motors a failed starting/run capacitor.

I've seen failure of the waste water gate/valve solenoid due to a timer issue. You'll have to do your detective work and once you know exactly the part that is eminating the smell, you will have a path to backtrack from.

Remember, water and electricity don't mix and shut both off before working inside the dish washer!

Kitchenaid Dishwasher trips the 60-amp main breaker but not 20-amp.

Its possible that there may be load on that circuit from other appliances. Had an issue myself with stove and laptop on same circuit.
Check other appliance attached to the 60amp circuit (microwave, stove, kettle etc)

It could be the main fuse..Not the proper amps for the dishwasher.It might have a loose ground...Every so many years you have to tighten your wires in your breaker box...Then will become loose...What I do is shut off the big breaker at the top of panel..That shuts off all power coming into house...Then with a flash light I tighten them all..You will be surprised how many are loose...But call a electrician if you don't know what your doing..It could kill you..I'm not saying this is your issue...But definitely be the problem....

You know, I think the best thing to do would be to replace the dishwasher. It is ten years old and a new one would be more energy efficient and you would save money in the long run.

Bosch dw shu043 dishwasher stopped working in middle of cycle

Hi and welcome to Fixya. 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 :)

Dishwasher not working

The motor may be burned out or there may be another electrical issue which would also cause the symptoms you describe. Call around and try to get an estimate, and at the same time look at new ones on question is how secure will u feel with that that it has acted up like this.

Open dryer's cover and look that the belt is OK and in place (over the tub and the motor) Try to find out from where the burning smell comes from. Does the motor spin ? Let me know with your results and I will do my best to assist you with your problem.
