Question about Dishwashers
If you have 120VAC going to the unit, then you have one of possible many problems. Please check the following or have a qualified person to use a multimeter to check: 1. The door switch 2. An unplugged wire or broken wire within the unit or at the switch.3. Timers (especially mechanical timers) use a mode to turn the unit off sometimes the contacts break causing the need for replacement of the timer. If I have no meter handy, kill the breaker, I would remove the door switch leads(wires) and connect the two together using a little electrical tape,turn on the breaker. If it works it is the switch and replacement is needed. If not look at a broken wire or timer. You could disconnect the power leads to the motor and check if it is getting 120VAC in the run mode, If it is getting voltage and it is not running or it only hums it is burned out; if not timer, switch or broken wire would be a possibilty.
