Have power to unit but it does not come on - Dishwashers


Answers :

HI, there are four problem spots that i recommend checking. these are the most common hot spots for a non responsive dishwasher. Check each area thoroughly to address this issue.


1. No power to the dishwasher
Make sure there's power getting to the dishwasher. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the dishwasher (inside the junction box, behind the bottom kick panel), if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

2. Door switch
Replace if defective.

3. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

4. Selector switch
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Bosch dishwasher (SXH55MO6UC/46): The power comes on and runs normal, but no water is coming into the unit. I was told that it was a water inlet valve that needs to be replaced (part #263833). I need to know if this is what needs to be replaced and if so, is this something that I can do or do I need an expert repair service to do it? If it is something that I can do, I need instructions. I am handy, but this is something that I have not done before, Thank you, Craig Covey

Hotpoint Dishwasher: HLD404M15SA. I installed the never used dishwasher and the Display Lights don't work. The unit operterates just fine. I tried the reset and powering off a few times, still not even a blink. It didn't come from a dealer, so I don't think the warranty would be an option.

I have a KitchenAid Dishwasher KUDIO1iLBS2 and none of the lights come on and if I press any of the buttons nothing happens. The unit is getting power to it as I shocked myself. I did ordered and replaced the control board and still nothing is happening. Any suggestions or ideas?

Dishwasher won't run. Replaced door latch and timer/selector unit. Into this POS for over 200 bucks right now, with nil result. Any other ideas? Clean light comes on so power is getting through it.

My kenmore dishwasher, model 665.16473300 has stopped working. Now the lights just flash at the Smart Wash, Normal Wash, and Cancel. I've reset the power and it just comes back. I've taken the drain area apart and made sure there are no obstructions. The buttons seem to respond, as after I reset the unit (breaker), only the Smartwash button is flashing. I push cancel and then it starts flashing. So I think the buttons work, but it's locked up.

My Samsung DMR77LHS dishwasher has lost power completely near the end of a cycle. About an inch of water remains. I have power to the unit. I checked the 15 amp fuse in the unit - it had blown. I replaced it, but still no luck. The fuse is not blowing, but there is no power to panel. Nothing happens when you hit the power button - no lights or anything. Unit acts as if ther is no power at all. I have seen similar posts. Any thoughts?


Hi, whenever a fuse of that magnitude, or any fuse really, Blows, you should never just replace it, as to have any device, blow a fuse, trip a breaker, requires a major fault, they do NOT blow spontaneously ever. So you have had a major short circu ... Samsung DMR77LHS Tall Tub Dishwasher

I have a Baumatic BDW 45.1 slimline dishwasher, the unit will power on but I cannot select a program. I was able to place the unit in to reset mode once by holding down 'P' and power cycling the unit. This then allowed me to choose a program and complete a full wash cycle. Now I cannot repeat this steps and the unit remains with just power light on. There are no Error codes displayed at all. Could this be a problem with the front panel?

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
