Sometimes the wire nuts come loose inside the connection box due to vibration. I have
also seen them burn through (when aluminum wire is connected to the dishwasher).
The power to the circuit should be shut off at the breaker panel and checked with
a "Non Contact voltage detector" before removing cover to inspect wire connections
in the connection box. The non contact detector is sold at many big box home
improvement stores for around 12 dollars. I recommend it since many breakers are not
marked at the panel or incorrectly marked, and the wiring can contact the chassis if
the wire nuts are burnt through. Check the detector at a working outlet prior to using.
Hope this helps.

1. No power to the dishwasher
Make sure there's power getting to the dishwasher. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the dishwasher (inside the junction box, behind the bottom kick panel), if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

2. Door switch
Replace if defective.

3. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

4. Selector switch
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

The power went out and when the power was restored the dishwasher did not come back on,whats wrong?


the surge could have fried the circuit board in the dishwasher or maybe the house circuit it's hooked into. maybe first check all of your breakers in your breaker box just to be sure one of them isn't tripped

No power


Hello

Plug the Siemens dishwasher into a working electrical outlet if nothing on the dishwasher is operating. Check the household circuit breaker or fuse and reset or replace as needed.

Push the door closed fully if the dishwasher has power but isn't starting. The unit will not operate if the door is open.

Hello. My Bosch dishwasher just isn't turning on again. It was working fine and now I cant get anything to turn on. Thank you


Make sure you have power to the machine. Plug in something you know works into the same power point as the dishwasher. If it works, then you will know the dishwasher has failed. If it doesnt, then check your meter box, switch, RCD etc.

Led wont light up. no power to dishwasher


Measure for 115 volts AC at the junction box behind the front lower panel where the incoming power connects to the washer wiring. If ok, you will need a wiring diagram of the washer to go further.
