Question about Dishwashers
You may have a loose power wire down in the electrical box on the dishwasher. Sometimes the wire nuts come loose if they are not securely fully. A loose wire may give it enough power to light the control panel and when the water valve turns ON the amperage increases, then the wires will push apart. This is because the two loose wires become magnetically similar poles and push apart. I have fixed many dishwashers by turning OFF the power to the dishwasher. Removing the lower kick panel opening up the electrical box, then removing the wire nuts, then reattach the wires together with the wire nuts again. Turn ON the power and see if the washer now works. If it does, then reassemble the dishwasher.
If this does not work, then you may have a loose wire connection in the control panel.
