Question about Dishwashers
All of the sudden one day I close my dishwasher and the lights don't come on. I tried turning off the breaker for a while, but nothing changed. I used an Ohm meter to test the door switch, which seems fine, but that's about the limit of my electrical abilities.
With your volt/ohm meter check for power going to the dishwasher. the power supply is located under the kick panel. the power wire may be shorted out due to poor installation. if you are not comfortable testing power, I would advise calling a professional. If no power is found at the power box (this has a power cord or electrical wire going to it) the problem lies within your house electric. if 120 volts is present, check for power @ the door switch. aftrer that you just need to follow the power wire and see where it stops
If this is a newly built house and new to you the builder may have put a light switch above your counter ,the one you didn't think went to anything, check for that! good luck with it!
