Briva In Sink Dishwasher Stopped Working!

Hello. My Briva dishwasher was working fine and now nothing. My husbands volt meter shows 120amps however nothing happens. The board that lights up when you choose a wash doesn't light up, it makes no noise, nothing. When you plug it in, the only thing that happens is it shows electricity getting into it with that meter. Does anyone have any ideas or know if it could be the temp fuse? Or perhaps something more involved? Thanks so much for your time and experience.

    I'm having the same problem.  Power out of the ground protection unit but a dead Briva.  No lights on the panel.  What was your remedy?

With a dead unit like that it could be pretty indepth but eliminate the easier things. The unit sould have a fuse that can be checked.

Sink backed up went in dishwasher. Then it drain in sink. Fixed sink stopped up but washer keeps draining but nothing in drain

Your post is a little confusing but I'll try my best.
First, it sounds like you fixed the sink problem and now have a dishwasher problem related to the backup.

I would take the drain line off both the sink and the dishwasher and clear anything that got stuck in there while fixing the main sink drain. It could have had something plugged into it by using a plunger on the sink.

If you have any standing water in the dishwasher, pushing the cancel button should activate the water pump and you should see the water drain into the insinkerator, etc whilst hearing the pump. If you hear the pump and see no water draining but still have water in the dishwasher, you have a clogged line. If you don't hear the pump, your pump might not be working or the cancel does not activate the pump.

Dishwasher will fill w/water but will shut off b4 cycle begins

Have you unplugged it for about 20 minutes yet and tried again?

Kenmore dishwasher water stopped coming in

Check the valve under your sink. If that's on go to the dishwasher. Remove the bottom panel. Locate the water inlet valve (usually on the left hand side. Pull the two wires from it and put your voltmeter on it. Start the dishwasher and watch the meter. If it shows 120v then the valve is bad. if you don't get 120v, the board or timer is bad.

Hi there. My Maytag MSE 760 FARS dishwasher is not filling, but the heating element is working. I suspect the pump has failed. What do I do?

what you can check,

  1. the float in the tub.their may be something caught under it
  2. the water valve,use a meter set to check ac voltage and check for 120 volts ac at the plug to it,if has 120 when supposed to fill valve is bad so long at it has water supply to it
  3. the float switch,use meter set to lowest ohms setting and remove the 2 wires on float switch and check for continunity(zero ohms) if meter reads OL replace float switch
  4. the control,check for 120 volts ac to float switch when supposed to fill, if 120 at fill portion yet no fill ,replace control
  5. water supply,if uses flex tube something in cabinet under sink may have pinched water line
Good luck,i hope this helps


Kenmore altra wash dishwasher, no water

Check the water inlet solenoid and the float.

Dishwasher will not start.

You more than likely have a faulty motor on your dishwasher.  This would be the main motor that pushes the water through the spray arms inside the dishwasher.
There should be a tech sheet behind the control panel of your dishwasher or maybe behind the lower kickplate.   This will give you the readings for the motor so you can test with a volt meter.
Give this a look first.  If the motor tests good then you may be looking into replacing the timer.
Thanks, Bill
