Dishwasher was opened to add dish and would not start back

\015 My wife had just started the dishwasher and after it started running for a couple of minutes, she opened the door to add another dish.\015\012\015\012When she closed the door it would not start back.\015\012\015\012The control panel is not lighting up.\015\012\015\012I checked the breaker, and after finding it was ok, I checked the power chord with a tester. It showed there was power to the dishwasher.\015\012\015\012I opened and closed the door several times to make sure the door was closing all the way and was locking and everthing seemed to be fine, except the dishwasher acts like there is no power.\015\012\015\012I was wondering if there is a reset button or should I check something else?\015\012\015\012Thank you in advance for you help.\015\012\015\012Wes\015

What model dishwasher is this? Most dishwashers have a safety switch that halts the wash cycle if the door or latch is opened. I would check this first since the problem originated while opening the door.
Give it a few minutes it may have a built in delay when cycle is interuptede

I have a Triton dishwasher. Last cycle, it completed washing then started drying and started beeping and the drying light is flashing. When I finally opened the latch, the beeping stopped, but the drying light is still flashing. The dishes were clean and warm - they air dried the rest of the way. I have not been able to get the drying light to go off. I have turned the breaker off over night, and flipped back on. The dishwasher goes back to flashing washing, and then clicks to drying and th

I have a GE dishwasher model GLDL560N10SS. I noticed a burning smell coming from it the other day and then realized that although I can hear water running into the dishwasher when I start it, it never actually runs in the sense that the water is pushed through the various outlets to wash the dishes. I'm assuming that it is because the unit is dry and the heating element is still coming on that it is causing a burning smell. If I open the unit and reset it, it pumps the water back out into the si

Blanco BFDW6 dishwasher drains and sounds like it is going to start but stops after 2-3 seconds. Yesterday it was playing up and made a fairly small puddle on the floor. Electrics seem to have been a problem from early on as after a few months it would let me open it during the beginning of the cycle to add items without needing to restart program. I am not sure if problem is electric (may need a reset?) or due to anti-flood feature.

We have a Diplomat dishwasher ADP 8242 and its intergrated but have no manual, the machine switches on fine and starts its cycle, i switched it on before going to bed and in the morning it was still running so obviously knew something was wrong, when i opened it the dishes were not clean and there was water in the bottom which took a while to drain away, also the salt inlet is full of water, should it be like that? Any advice would be great thank you.

It became more frequent until two days ago when the dishwasher stopped mid cycle and flashed PF. When I opened and closed the door, everything went dead and the dishwasher no longer works.

I recently had the e4 error code on my new world dw60 dishwasher. I have since opened it up and replaced the heater element, which appears to have resolved that issue. However, in the process of doing this I incorrectly installed the flood switch back into place, meaning that it was in its closed position (i.e. the position it would be when activated by a flooded base) when I went to turn the dishwasher back on. I have since opened it back up and correctly installed the flood switch, but I ca

Cranky dishwasher I have to admit my wife's solution is the only one that works. Our ten-year-old Superba built-in usually starts a normal cycle part-way through, at the wash part, without filling or opening the dispenser door. Therefore the dishes come out with the soil now baked on. Closing the door, selecting normal and start results in a pump-out sound, or at least just the pump running to wash the dishes. The dishwasher ignores any cancel button push,and the light does not come on over t

Frigidaire dishwasher won't end cycle - will run on and on for hours. Sometimes it cycles through, usually it just endlessly washes and rinses. I have to CANCEL the cycle, which causes the dishwasher to empty and run a few RINSE ONLY cycles (which are consistent, cycle time wise) to rinse the soap off of the dishes. Also, the door for the soap seems to stick - how long into the cycle before the soap door should open? Also, does opening the washer during it's cycle (to add more dishes) change or

I have mold in my dishwasher. This happened about 6 mos ago and I used the vinegar and scrub method to get rid of it...it was a pain in the fanny! Now the mold is back...the dishwasher has also not been drying the dishes very well either, although in truth it never has. There must be some other reason that the mold is back! Oh, and I've used Jet Dry since I bought the machine 7 years ago, and have tried the ''leave the door open to dry the dishes'' .... any thoughts?


Get rid of the mold - Pour about 2 cups of bleach in the dishwasher with about 1 cup of salt, and a gallon of cold water, use the light wash, not heated. Make sure when you start the cycle it doesn't drain first or you lose the bleach. Also I don't ... Dishwashers

I have a Fisher and Paykel drawer dishwasher and I'm wondering if there's a way to put a panel on it to make it look like and integrated dishwasher. It would need some way of the panel moving to start the dishwasher because the controls are located on the front. I plan on putting it in an Ikea Akurum that is 24" deep. The dishwasher is 22-9/10 deep, so that looks like it would leave some space for the dishwasher to sit back in the cabinet so the door panel could be flush with the cabinet. I'm no
