A couple of weeks my dishwasher wouldn't start. I pushed buttons and nothing happened. The next evening (fortunately before I called a repair service) it started up and worked fine..Three days ago it did the same thing, no lights, no action. I have reset the circuit breaker twice with no results. It is a Bosch SHX46A02UC and only 16 months old. Any ideas?
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.
1/4/2012 Our non-power problem was the controller. (The circuit board containing the wash cycle buttons). We Just had the service tech out today. Took him all of about 20 minutes. Good thing for us is that part is warrantied for 5 years and ours is 4 but less than 5.
Service call was $94.
IF We would have had to buy the part out of warranty it would have been an additional $98 or so.
Was happy that it was still under warranty but worst case would have been about $200 in this situation.

You have an intermittent contact somewhere that vibrations will every once in a while restore contact. I would clean and crimp every stinking electrical connection in the unit including the door switch. You do that, and I am sure the unit will be fine..
we have a 4 yr. old built in dishwasher,model #665-15812,the lock-on light is blinking,and the wash and rinse lights are on,but if we push start ,it won't,and if we push the clear button,it won't clear,it's like it's stuck ....we've tried un-plugging,etc....any ideas,on what to do??? donnie-sue79
I'm having the same problem. Could it be the power switch? Usually the cycle choices light up when it is depressed and nothing is happening now, so I do not know if it could be the door switch, since nothing at all lights up when the switch is pressed.
