The first thing you'll need to find out is how much current the dishawasher uses.. for example .. if it is less than 15amp ( which most are) then 14 awg wire is appropriate.. If it is more than 15 amps and less than 20, 12 awg wire is required.. You need to make sure that the circuit breaker feeding this appliance is sized correctly for this.. In some states.. dishwashers and garbage disposals are wired similarly to a refridgerator where you install a receptacle in a box and get a plug set for that appliance and simply plug it into that receptacle.. Feel free to respond to this with any questions or if I confused you.. I'll get you thru it.

Hope this helps..

How to repair my kenmore dish washer not powering on but shocked me before it shut down for good ?


it sounds to me as though you may have a bare wire giving a direct short to the system.therefore by having a hot wire grounding out on the dishwasher body, it is running that current to the dishwasher body where if you touch the dishwasher you will recieve a shock.this also doesnt allow the electricity to go to where it is needed to power your appliance.

My dish washer dose not start, it keeps yieling "


Hi enasammar, First thing to do is to reset. Merely unplugging the power cord from the wall socket for 4 hours, then power up again.The purposed of unplugging is to dissipitate the stored current in the memory IC thats control the unit to hang up, so it will gone. Take out all inside the unit and clean,then turn on . If still not working give me the model number so i can find the schematic diagram for that unit. Hope it may helps.

We have Frigidaire 24 in. FDB1050REC dishwasher. The control panel has no power; no lights and nothing works. This problem started after a power outage. All circuit breakers in house ok and other outlets...


more than likely fuse is gone in plug. take dish washer out. change fuse in plug. if it doesnt work get extension lead and run it from a socket that definatly does work and plug washer into that. if nothing then its internal.

Dishes bottom rack are marginally clean. upper rack is never clean anymore. The dish washer cycles through NORMAL and Dries dishes OK. Motor is running, and rinsing can be heard as well as washing cycles....


Just fixed my Frigidaire. The outboard o-ring on the main pump became distorted and stretched. Check your local hardware store as Frigidaire wants $17.50 + shipping. Good luck

Not enough water Pressure to clean dishes, 6yr old Bosch


Replace the pump, if you go through the trouble of repairing the pump and all the disassembly and then more problems will probably ensue. As far as location it is usually located under the washer. Accessed through the front service panel. Make sure you follow all safety procedures #1 being unplug the washer or turn off breaker prior to proceeding.

POWER ON-PROGRAM WONT WORK


1. No power to the dishwasherMake 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).

Dish washer door leaks


This sounds like a case of the water rising too high in the machine. If your unit has a float to control the water level (located in the wash area), it is likely stuck. Free it by letting water into the machine and then exercising it to get the 'goo' out. If it has a pressure switch located in the motor area, clean out the line.

Fridiare dish washer


Sounds like a blown thermal fuse. Most dishwashers have a thermal fuse mounted on or near the control board inside the console. There should also be a tech sheet inside the lower panel under the door that can help guide you. The thermal fuse should read a short. If it is open, it is non-resettable and must be replaced. I hope this helps you.
