Opened door and unit did not have electrical power (lights did not come on either unit). Called serviceman. He stated there was no electricity to unit(s). Called electrican. He stated wiring to the dishwasher had power. Called serviceman again. He came out and dishwasher worked. He did nothing to it. I opened the door and the lights(buttons) came on. Unit worked for a few days and this morning, there was again, no power to the unit. What is likely wrong with this dishwasher?

My GSD3600 GE Dishwasher will not finish/start a cycle. The washer filled with water and during the cycle I heard a pop like someone knocked something over in the kitchen. I smelled an electrical burning smell. All the lights and the buttons work on the front panel, but when I try to start I hear an electrical buzz like it is trying to start, but nothing happens and after 3 seconds the electrical buzzing stops and the lights on the panel flash. I removed the dishwasher and found that when I hit


Hello Greg,\015\012\015\012Your diagnosis is pretty good, but the buzzing suggests it may be the capacitor for the pump motor that has failed rather than the pump motor itself.

The electronic panel on the top of the door doesnt light up anymore and is unresponsive, when the power is turned on, the machine makes a sound like its running or draining or something, but nothing is happening. This all started after a potential electrical disruption following a power outage. Perhaps there is a fuse or some relatively easy way to fix this? or am I screwed and should just call a repair man. Thanks for your suggestions, Brodie

I push wash cycle, indicator light comes on, shut door and nothing happens.  So the door switch seemed like a good place to start. Since I am an electrician I thought I would give it a shot.

My Kenmore Elite suddenly stopped filling with water. I pushed start but when I checked it hours later the soap dispenser door had opened, the soap is just lying in a puddle, and nothing is clean but the clean light on the front panel is blinking. I tried again to no avail. Any ideas? I've had the machine since it first came on the market and have had other issues with it--it never drains completely, it makes sounds like someone revving a sports car engine when the drain pump is engaged, my dish

Dishwasher Dilema Hi, Can someone help me solve this problem. Last time I had a problem with my dishwashers I was pretty successful in solving it on this site. I was running a reg wash on the top drawer of my Fisher&Paykel when I suddendly had to stop it in the middle of a wash to add more dishes (something I do all the time) suddenly both screens started beeping with an F1 along with a wrench. It sounds like both motors top and bottom are running full blast. I tried shutting the power for a few

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!

Dead dishwasher? I have an Prima LXP600 dishwasher that doesn't work - no power light, no beeps, no anything. I've changed the fuse and used different power sockets. Is there anything that I can investigate, or alternatively is it likely to worth calling an engineer? The machine looks almost unused (was in a repossessed house that I bought, so no history), so I'd like to think that it's got some life left in it!

The dishwasher pump sounds like it is trying to drain, even when the stop button is pressed and the door is opened. The only thing that stops it is turning the power off at the power point. However, when the power is turned on the pump continues. The wash cycle icon flashes, but the usual cycle indicator is not lit at all. The dishwasher will not commence a new cycle.
