Re: No power light comes on
Bone, you probably have a blown thermal fuse that is located on the control board, easy fix. First check your wiring to the diswasher behind the bottom panel. I will attach a photo..Catriver..post back.

There are two things with different answers- \'trip\' normally can apply to either the circuit breaker (~15-20 amperes) or the Ground Fault Interrupter where the latter can be part of a circuit breaker or a wall-mounted AC outlet.
Circuit (overload) breakers prevent fires when appliances (or others) and GFIs prevent death by electrocution.
The first (breakers), can trip when motors and transformers fail, the second (GFIs) trip when a faulty current path is detected that can allow hazardous AC voltages to be present on accessible parts.
Both circuit breakers and GFIs can fail to perform correctly and some training and a multimeter is required to accurately determine the source of the problem.
could be wites in the door at the hinge, the microswitches in the door lick assembly, or if it is a series of flashes it could mean a code depending on your model number. Last to check is visuals on the control board for burning, or any loose wiring.
Most dishwashers and other appliances using water, are protected by a Ground Fault Interrupter or GFI.
These will sometimes trip without having detected any dangerous leakage current and others will get oversensitive causing them to trip well below their design current.
A GFI wall socket will have two buttons on it; one to 'test' the other to reset. On some brands, when they are tripped, the reset button moves only a little further out and may not appear tripped.
GFIs are also found combined with circuit breakers that also differ in appearance from the unprotected type and will also have a reset button.
If your dishwasher is plugged in under the kitchen sink, check its appearance to see if it is GFI equipped.
BTW, these can be used in one location and connected so all of the wall plugs on the same circuit can be served by a single GFI equipped breaker so check any others nearby as well.
If a GFI refuses to stay set, it may be actually detecting some leakage current of a dangerous level so don't assume the GFI is bad, the appliance on it its circuit may have developed an internal problem.
1. turn breaker off to diswasher. 2. remove bottom access cover. 3. remove cover over electrical connection box on right side. 4. hold each wire nut connector and firmly tug on one wire at at time to make sure none of the wires pull out of the wire connecor nuts. A loose connection here is more common than you might think.
If those are all OK, turn breaker back on and make sure you have power there. (120 volts black to white) If that was OK, then check door latch switch inside door at the top center and wires passing through door at the bottom of the door.
You can put the unit into diagnostics (press the following keys in order within 6 seconds HEATED DRY, NORMAL, HEATED DRY, NORMAL all the lights will come on and it will start a diag cycle) and see if it recovers. If not, you are looking at a electronic control, and yes you CAN change the part yourself.
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!
The door switch is definitely not the problem if the indicator lights are not coming on. These lights are supposed to come on when the door is open.
The problem is 1 of 3 things:
1) No power to outlet that DW is plugged into;
2) Bad connection where power cord is connected to dishwasher (see very bottom front, under kick panel)
3) Some problem internal to the DW (eg., bad switch, shorted wire, etc., )
Our SHX46A is definitely having problem 3, but Bosch's manual gives zero help. So, off to find more info online or, lastly, to call Bosch repair person. Sigh.
