If the door handle appears loose, you could have a broken door latch which will prevent the dishwasher from running if the door is not able to latch properly. The latch usually has two micro switches that are pretty delicate. Not to accuse you of abusing your appliance, but if you're in the habit of slamming the dishwasher door shut, you could inadvertently break the switches in the door. The switch assembly and handle are sold separately, so you may need to purchase both. Let me know if this helps.

Maytag dishwasher wont fill with water

Hi Mingsten 1) check the water valve under the sink make sure it is open. 2) check if the water line is pinched or twisted 3) if you have a meter you can check if you get power to the dishwashers water valve ( it is under the dishwasher. behind the kick plate.) you will have to remove 2 or 4 screws to get to it. hook up your meter and close the door. wait for the pump out and check for 110-120 volts when the dishwasher should fill.. 3) if you have power at this time you will need a need dishwaher water valve.. 4) if you get no power then you may have other problems ( let me know and we can go deeper) I hope this helps let me know...

Dishlex 300 blobal dishwasher. have set dishwaher for normal wash as usual. All lights are one but dishwaher will not start. help please

It is likely the door switch is not engaging properly. Check the gasket is set properly and the door is closing when you shut it. Also confirm if it is not on delay start.

I push start and my dishwaher wont turn on. I have checked the other buttons and they work. I also turned off my breaker to see if that will help and it still doesn't turn on,

either:
  1. something blocks the door from latching or closing. Check, if anything is stuck behind a dishrack. try reversing lower rack. check if the door aligns properly and dishwasher is installed correctly
  2. latch switch failed/latch mechanism is broken. Disconnect dishwasher from power. Disassemble door, check latch, check latch switches for continuity
  3. touch panel or control board (less likely) is failing. replace if none of the above is working for you.
Good luck,

Sprung the door now it won't close was emptying it and tripped over a dog

You probably need a new dishwaher. I have seen a few sprung door hinges repaired which worked OK, but most still leak after a costly repair. Your call and good luck. Ken
