No power appears to be coming in....no connection when door is closed; no lights come on on any of the cycle indicators...deader than a doornail@l


Hello. I need the make/model number to help you most accurately. From the symptom you describe, there might be a main fuse located on or near the main control board which has opened, killing power to the unit. Clues: totally dead--no lights--an open door will not affect indicator lights, the unit won't do anything though--safety(nothing will happen until the door is closed) Have you had a power outage recently? Usually 3-4 weeks after an outage, the damaged chips on the boards start to fail. This can be evidenced by blown control panels, blown main boards, etc. Make sure 120 volts *is* getting to the dishwasher--check the power connections below(be careful). If the breaker has tripped, reset it and see if the unit runs. Troubleshooting starts from the outside and proceeds inward, eliminating the obvious and moving to ever more complex problems until the culprit is found. Definitely supply me with that model number so I can see what I'm dealing with and guide you correctly. Thanks!

No power top drawer


Try to reset your dish washer. Turn off main power supply and leave it for at least 1 min. Is there any error code appear/beeping sound?

My bosch dishwasher won't start


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Power Supply

The main power supply is the first thing to check. Also remove the toe kick and the cover on the power box and check the connections. Also check for 120 volts at the power box.

Hi - Limit Fuse

This will fail if your dishwasher overheats and occassionally with power surges. This is easy to check, inexpensive and a quick fix. Just check the terminals for continuity ( remember always remove one wire) if you have none replace the hi limit fuse

Door Switch

This is the second place to look. Again an inexpensive easy fix. The following video will walk you thru checking the door switch. . The power comes into the main power box and usually runs to the door switch next before entering the main control module.

Main Control Module / Timer

The main control module or mechanical timer controls all the functions of the dishwasher. To check this you will need to find the 2 leads that supply the power to the control. They will be marked on the wiring diagram. They usually come from the hi - limit fuse or the door switch. When the door is latched you should have 120 volts entering the main control. If you do not the problem is not the control. If you do have power entering the control but none of the functions work properly or it does not respond at all you will need to replace the control module , this is easy to replace but not very inexpensive to purchase. Consider the age and overall condition when purchasing this part.

Motor

The motor may have failed. If the control illuminates on electronic versions the problem may be the motor. To check the motor refer to the tech sheet located behind the console cover on most models, this will sometimes have the ohm reading of the motor. Also check each lead to the metal housing of the motor to check for shorts in the motor. If you do not have the ohm reading specicifications, check for continuity if none replace the motor Make sure the motor is receiving power

Float Switch

If the float switch has failed or is stuck the dishwasher control may not respond. The float switch is easy to check and replace.

If your water supply is fine and filters not blocked the problem could be the water supply solenoid inside the machine has stopped working.

Dishwasher does nor drain. Small residue of water


If its not the drain hose, you might need a valve or if you have a new garbage disposal you need to punch out a peice of the plastic or it wont drain. Hope this helped, good luck

Unit is dead: does not appear to have power


Hello chicagogunn,
Welcome,

You said,Your unit stopped working mid-cycle. You have verified that there is power to unit. Is there an internal fuse which could have been tripped? None of the lights on the control panel currently light.

There is a thermal fuse!
Go to this repair web site I listed below and you will see the diagram
1. Diagram Page 02 - CONTROL PANEL PARTS
2. The thermal fuse is, Item # 6 on the diagram.
3. Click on page two on the left at this site.
4. And then in the upper right corner it says Open This Diagram in a New Window

Let me know how you do!!
Huuum
Please remember to leave a rating!!!!

ALSO:
Here are four things that the repair manual says to check.
1.
Burnt or broken wires
Check for burnt or broken wires. This would include the wires on the timer and door switch. Also check the wiring connection where the main power connects to the machine.

2. Defective Timer
The timer is a series of switches that controls all machine functions. If one of the contacts in the timer is defective, the machine will lose that function. knowledge of the the use of a volt /ohmmeter is essential to testing the timer as well as the ability to read the timer sequence chart that is supplied with the machine. In most cases this requires a professional technician

3.Door switch
The door switch is wired in series with all components on the machine. If the door switch is defective, the machine will do nothing. Check the door switch for continuity

4.No Electrical power

Ensure that the proper voltage is being supplied to the appliance. Check the breakers or fuses that are supplying the power to the appliance electrical outlet. You can use a voltmeter to test for voltage at the electrical outlet.

Thank you Huuum

Kenmore undercounter dishwasher quiet guard


Presuming that your circuit breaker is not tripped and you have power to the dishwasher, it appears that your thermo fuse is blown. You can replace it for around $20. It comes in a kit form or you can replace the thermo fuse for around $1. The part number is NTE 8096 Thermo Fuse 98 degrees Celsius and solder it in yourself. It is located on the circuit board that contains all the relays and the main computer chip. It clips on and off.

Miele g 646 sc (not plus)


check the inlet where it joins onto the tap as mine has a fine filter and debris from the fresh water builds up. Simply remove the pipe from the tap and **** ,this should remove /dislodge any scale etc that could be causing the inlet light to come on. Make sure you spit out the water that comes back from the machine!
