Is your dishwasher hard wired into the house power system ... or plugged into a wall outlet under the kitchen sink?
You mentioned you turned off the power ... how? via the circuit breaker or disconnecting it from the wall? If your unit is plugged into an outlet (and you depowered by cutting the breaker) ... I would check the cord and outlet .. it might be as simple as that.
If that is not the problem ... trying a reset.
Below is a generic one for Whirpools which may work on your model
To reset it, you will have to have the door open. It can not be latched. Press "Heated Dry," "Normal," "Heated Dry," "Normal" within three seconds of the first pressed button. Now close the door, this should reset your dishwasher.
Good luck on your troubleshooting!
You reversed the black and white wires on what? Don't ever do that. One is the line and one is common. They are polarized for a reason.
Immediately stop using that outlet before you burn your house down. Switch the breaker off to that power circuit, then have a qualified electrician check it out.
Hello - Probably, but someone with basic electrical skills can check the wires in the power connection box under the unit. If these wires look good, the problem is best left to a pro. Some part of the circuit is grounding, causing breaker to trip. Finding out where is an on-site job. Let me know if this info helps- have more if needed. -Thanks- Ed
Check you electrical power box that feeds to the house. If this dishwasher is hooked up under a sink counter and there is a garbage disposal in the sink area the dishwasher should be hooked up to the same circuit that the dishwasher is hooked to. If the garbage disposal works then the circuit is good your problem is either in the connection from the plug to the dishwasher or in the timer section of the unit. Either way the unit wont operate. Check power into the unit then check power at the hookup from the dishwasher to the plug itself if all is good then timer has gone bad
Make sure power adapter is plugged into a power outlet that you know works. Then try and power drain the printer by unplugging the power cable and letting it sit for a bit and pressing the power button a few times. Then plug the power back in and see if it power up. If not, then the power adapter itself or the internet power on the printer might be faulty.
