Question about Challenger 20 Amp 1 Pole C120 Circuit Breaker

1 Answer

My dishwasher stopped working and the 15-20amp breaker is acting funny. When you try to put the panel box back on after trying that breaker to see if it's bad, it's like it's hitting the breaker or something and the dishwasher comes on and then flicks off and so on and when the panel is completely back on tightly, the dishwasher will not come back on..My husband just left to go to Home depot to find teh breaker to repalce it, is that the problem? FYI-Also, another plug nearby isn't working either, and it's not the GFCI.

It sounds like the circuit breaker is not seated correctly. Turn off your main breaker and then try to reset the breaker in place

WASHER FILLED AND THEN STOPPED NO POWER TO PANEL


Check the breaker box for a tripped breaker. If it is tripped then flip it back on. If it trips again call a repairman, you probably have a short.

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.

Miele G 2630 stopped working. It started and then just stopped now no power


Hi

The power issue with the Miele G2630 dishwasher is due to a blown fuse inside the dishwasher or due to faulty main board of the dishwasher. However, before checking internal components we can first reset the circuit breaker, make sure it is a 15 A breaker. If the breaker is fine then you'll need to disassemble the dishwasher. Try and dis-mantle the dishwasher from its place, before this remember to turn off power and water supply. And also check for the drain hose. After the dishwasher is dismantled, you can remove the back panel of the dishwasher and check for the blown fuse and also check for any loose connections on the power supply board. Inspect for burnt components on the main board.

Please post back for any further assistance. If you are satisfied please do accept the solution.

Bosch dishwasher shx55m with bottom tub full of water


The dishwasher really shouldn't pass any particles near large enough to clog the drain hose. It sounds more like a mechanical issue. Check the circuit breaker to make sure it's not tripped. See if you can hit a cancel button or something to make it drain. Try to run another cycle. If the computer is stuck or acting funny, trying cutting the power for a while, holding down a stop/reset/cancel button, or running a cycle that you don't usually run. I had this kitchenaid that would randomly refuse the normal wash cycle, but would run fine when you ran rinse only or something, then regular wash and everything would be fine again too. If the line somehow is clogged, there's a good chance it's right where the hose connects to the disposal or drain pipe.

GE Triton not working


Jitterbugclu-
I may have the solution. Husband just turned off power to dishwasher via circuit breaker. Waited around 30 minutes.
Restored power and Triton came back with normal lights.
I just ran a cycle and all was well. Hope this helps you.
My fingers are crossed because I don't know what happened but did read on another site that this should be the first thing you try before expen$ive repairman.
Reply back if it works!

Continuous beep after power went off and on


I'm the one who posted on May 23. I tried turning off the breakers and it was still beeped when powered back on. I ordered a new touchpad and control module. When I replaced the touchpad, the beeping was gone, but not all the buttons worked, so I changed out the control module, too, and it works:) I'm going to put clear caulk along the top to prevent spills from leaking through the front panel.

Problems with Whirlpool dishwasher model GU1500XTKB0


will these units (silo and jtrip) start back on their own? if so, it is likely they are heating the water.
otherwise it sounds like a logic board, unless there is a defective door switch or sensor issue.
electronics seem to be a recurring problem with whirlpool.
i would ask whirlpool (electorlux) to either buy it back or fix it.
good luck

Dishwasher tripping the circuit breaker


Andy, leave the breaker off and remove the toe panel (bottom panel) from the dishwasher. Remove the cover of the junction box where the cord connection or wiring is made. Look at the wire caps and see if they are not burnt. Sometimes these connections become loose and arch, tripping the breaker. If so, cut the wires, strip a new end and reconnect.
