Our AEG Favorit 50620 dishwasher won't start. When I push the power button, the power light comes on, but none of the other lights. Pushing the function buttons has no effect. The door is fully closed, and it was working perfectly before. I have tried turning it off and on, unplugging it etc. Nothing works. Interestingly, if you push more than one function button at the same time, some of the function lights come on, but then when you try to start the cycle it still won't work. Help!

My Asko D1996 Dishwasher will not start. The control panel has 3 lights staying on - position #1, 6 and 7 and are unresponsive no matter what buttons are pushed - even after turning the power off at the breaker, the outlet and the on/off button.I've tried holding down the start button for several seconds to reset but this did not work. I have also cleared the drain, filters and removed any water and pushed and held the Start button to reset.

My Maytag dishwasher goes for long stretches when it won't turn on even though I push the proper buttons. The buttons won't light either. It turns on by itself after a couple of weeks of sitting idle. Some of the lights may blink on the start panel while the dishwasher doesn't work, but only on occasion will it fully operate. I have turned off the power and turned it back on, hoping to reset the computer part of the dishwasher. It didn't work.

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.
