Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Dishwasher will not start, buttons do not register, no lights turn on. Door is closing completely and the circuit has not been tripped.


Answers :

Check power cord is plugged all the way in. Make sure GFCI plug is not tripped and button is set if it has one. Try unplugging the appliance from the power for a minute then plug it back in and see if that works. If those are good you could dis-assemble the front panel(unplug first) and inspect ribbon connector on control board. Make sure connector is fully seated and has not come loose. Look for signs of any tiny shorts across the connector. Could be a bad control panel board. I had a similar problem and it turned out the ribbon connector for the control panel had shorted. I had to buy a new control panel online(ribbon connector could not be repaired).

Hi, The machine will not complete a cycle. I think it may have started when the power was turned off at the mains during a cycle. Symptoms are : - You can turn machine on, select a program, press start button, close door, machine appears to begin cycle as normal, water seems to load, then 2 minutes later drains, and 1 minute or so after that the machine beeps 3 times to indicate cycle is finished. Dishwasher tablet door never opens, dishes not cleaned. Have tried : - cleaning filters; - turn

I have a hotpoint LFT04 dishwasher. Recently it tripped the power supply, and now when we start a cycle after a few minutes it stops and the lights on the power button and cycles 2 and 4 flash constantly. If the power button is turned off and the door closed, after a period of time it starts up again automatically. Any ideas appreciated.

Hello, Our kitchenaid DW has stopped working. Non of the buttons cause a any of the lights to turn on. Of course, it will not start. On its last working cycle, it had a very strange washing cycle. It almost sounds like the water was not splashing around (even though I opened it while it was working and noticed water at the bottom). I checked the circuit breaker, and it is not tripped. For a couple of weeks, the DW had started making a kind of metallic noise while in the washing cycle. Also,

GU1500XTLS3 Periodically won't start. Dishwasher has power because pressing cancel causes dishwasher to start draining (even though there is no water). Door switch works because opening door prevents starting drain cycle. No other button on control panel will work except for the 'air dry' / 'lockout' button. Turning off circuit breaker for 15-30 minutes and then turning circuit breaker back on seems to fix the problems but only for a couple uses and then it stops working again. Need ad

Kitchen circut was accidently turned off. Now whirlpool gold disher will not work(unit was not running and the door was not closed all the way when circuit was turned off, All circuit breakers are on) There are no lights on display when door is closed completely, and it appears to have no power. Worked fine prior, what could it be? The unit has not been removed from under the counter yet. Is there a fuse or circuit breaker on the unit? If so where is it located? Other troubleshooting ideas

IDL750 - Fuse trips when turned on. HELP! We had some electricians here to install a new electrical socket for a new fridge. They put the new socket in the same wiring as for my existing dishwasher!! The first time I tried to start the dishwasher cycle with the new fridge plugged in, the circuit box fuse tripped. Now, even with the fridge turned off, the dishwasher makes the fuse trip when turned on. Is there a fuse inside the dishwasher that has blown and needs to be replaced? or a ground brea

For my Kudi01dl model dishwasher, the rinse light is on, but the unit will not respond to any buttons being pressed and won't turn on. When I press any buttons, two horizontal lines show in the front, but go off as soon as I let go of the button. Is there a ways to reset the unit?

The start/pause button beeps when pressed to start a program and the machine gives a beep in response and appears to start its initial sump emptying phase but stops within 1-2 secs. Have checked pump and found no problem but start time is so short that in cannot have sensed a problem in the pumping circuit.

I have a F&P dishwasher model DW60CDX1 (around 5 years old) which we cannot start a cycle. The dishwasher turns on (power button and all programme indicators light up) but when you press a programme button nothing happens - the lights don't change.

When trying to start the dishwasher, pressing the Normal wash button, the dishwasher gives a huge clunk and then it trips the circuit breaker. Upon resetting the breaker, I tried the next button over, which is Soak and Wash, and it seems to go thru the cycle fine. Another time I tried the Normal button, but put the left dial on Rinse and it started up, but it would clunk periodically and it seemed to have a 'hot' smell. I'm worried to use it - what could this be? Is there anything else I can try

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!

Hi, I have a Dishlex dishwasher. It's an electronic model, from about 92 I think. The model I thought was B8557WW. It is very hard to see the model number because it's almost washed away. Is the model number maybe located anywhere else on the machine? Could there be a manual or circuit diagram hidden somewhere on (in) the machine? The fault is that it wont start. It reacts to some of the front buttons, and beeps, but not all, and not the start button. Before it stopped working completely, some o

My daughter accidentally turned on our GE GLDA690 dishwasher. I can't seem to cancel it out without actually starting the cycle. I opened the door before the cycle started but now it is sitting there beeping. The obvious thing is to load it with dishes and run it. But it is just the two of us and we don't really have a load full. Owner's manual is no help. Even turning off the circuit breaker will not stop this infernal beeping. How do I cancel it? Why isn't there a cancel button?

Wont start I've had the washer for many years with minimal problem. Yesterday when I closed the door no light went on and the washer would not start.  After 20 minutes or so it suddenly went on and worked fine.  I thought that it might have not completed its last cycle. Today, however, I had the same problem and it's been over an hour and still hasn't started. (I checked the circuit breaker and it's fine)

After the wash & dry is complete, the next time I try to use it, won't turn on. I tried cancel and that starts and finishes but can't get any thing else to work. I turned off the circuit breaker but have to wait 6-8 hours before turning back on. Once this is done the machines runs normal again. I have to repeat this process every time I want run. Any suggestions on what might be causing this???
