Dishwasher won't start...

Lights on, and sometimes, when I'm ready to beat the thing down, it will start working. That was until today. It no longer wants to play. So, any ideas??
I know there is power, and well, that's about it.
Help would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers
JJ

Most common fault is door switch. Do the lights stay on with the door opened? If so, this may be the problem. Otherwise may be the timer switch or the water valve. If it's the water valve the pump should come on when the timer knob is turned and the drain cycle is actuated. Othwise it's probably the door switch or the timer. If it was intermittant and banging on it made it work before it may just be a loose connection.

Maytag dishwasher, no power, then flashing lights, now no power.

Had the same problem, removed the kick panel to find a set of instructions under the insulation, had to push a sequence of the panel buttons, its been running great for a couple of weeks now!

Dishwasher won't start

Kaclf, If you have no lights at all, dishwasher unresponsive, it's probably one of two things. First check the junction box where the cord hooks up to the dishwasher. Sometimes I find a bad connection in the wire-nut. Second, there is a thermal fuse that sits on the control board. You will have to remove the inside panel. You want to see if it's blown. It will be sitting on the top side of the board, two wires going to it. Catriver
