It is nothing to do with the extension lead you are using, sounds more like a board problem to me, or another fault causing the lights to flash.

    Apart from any obvious signs of damage, it is difficult to test a board for faults.
    and as you have not stated the make of washer, i am afraid I cannot help you further.

13 yr old dishwasher suddenly stopped working mid pre wash. Water left in bottom of machine. Power point is fine. Will not start at all now though. No lights turn on either. Is it fixable ?


If it is 13 years old, it has most likely reached its end of life--whatever the cause, something has malfunctioned. However, a service technician would probably be able to advise.

My hotpoint Aquarius washing machine keeps tripping out and won't stay on


Hello Russell;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

You did not provide your model number so I have to be general.

There are 2 components that will shut the dishwasher down after start-up.

Door latch contact switch.

Turn the dishwasher power off at your breaker box. Check to make sure the power is off by turning your dishwasher on.
Remove the front of the control panel. Some units have a small front panel and other units you have to remove the whole front of door. Generally the fasteners are torque screws.
Remove the door switch. Using a multi-meter set to the lowest Ohm setting touch both contacts on the switch with the meter leads and depressing the switch in. If the meter reads 'O' the switch is good. Anything else the switch is bad.

My diplomat dishwasher will not turn on. I changed the fuse in the plug and it still wont turn on. Theres no lights or anything, it has completely died


Try checking the power supply. It is possible that there is a fault in the socket. 1) Try plugging something else into the socket to check that it is working. or 2) plug your machine into a wander lead that it connected to another socket.

If still no joy, call in a repair man- good luck!

My computer wont turn on


Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause you problems

computers need all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly


motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail

check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working


also check the Cmos battery and computer RAM modules make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

check you CPU make sure its securely seated and has thermal grease

hope it helps

No power on washing machine (candy go1482) it blew the house trip then since then wont turn on ive tried an extension lead and still does not work


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but with such a fault it is virtually impossible for anybody on this forum to remotely guess what is wrong with your washer.
It could be internal wiring/plugs sockets, control panel switches, control PCB, water inlet control valves, door solenoid as primary suspects. Secondary suspects could be main motor, drain motor.
I fear that your only real option is a service call as the engineer will have the right equipment to safely diagnose what is wrong.
Sorry again ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

I have no power to my kenmore dishwasher. breakers looks ok.


If both units are not working there is a power supply issue. It sounds like from what you are saying that there is a power supply behind your dishwasher and you need to remove the machine to access the power source. If so here you go.

The dishwasher is likely screwed into the underside of the counter as well at held by the legs. Look for the screws and remove. You should have enough room to lift the machine a little and slide it out.

To turn the legs the foot itself turns. You turn the foot not the fitting where it attaches to the machine. Here it is usually done with slip joint pliers or a crescent wrench.

Hope this helps. Please rate this solution.
