Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Hi In the middle of a wash cycle, my dishwasher tripped the circuit breaker on the wall. I diagnosed this by unpluggin dishwasher, plugging in a different appliance and switching circuit breaker back on. new appliance worked OK. When dishwasher had cooled, I tried it again on same circuit (which I knew was working properly). The lights came on for about three seconds, and then the circuit breaker cut back in again, so I knew it was the dishwasher that was causing the problem. Is there anyt

Hi Ray,
\015\012Because the circuit will noly stay on for a few seconds the tracing down of the problem could be difficult. Can you tell if the breaker trips if it sounds like power was applied to the motor or did it just buzz and tripp???
\015\012If it sounded like the motor tried to start then I would guess it is a motor problem...if it just buzzed and tripped then a wire maybe rubbed through...
\015\012Often times the best way to track down the problem is with an OHM meter...tracing the circuits till you find the one that is causing the problem...this can be tedious and time consuming...
\015\012
\015\012If you are comfortable with that type of troubleshooting...go for it...if not then calla tech. in to troubleshoot it, but make sure that he has done that before and is not just a parts changer...that can get very expensive...

GE GSD5320 seemed to finish all light wash cycles. Then it began to beep, with the NORMAL light blinking. I hit RESET, but none of the other buttons worked. I threw the circuit breaker for this appliance and waited an hour. I Turned the circuit breaker on but now I get the NORMAL light blinking, even when the door latch is not engaged. No buttons work.

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


This could be the 'fill switch', which is the level sensor. Could be a plastic tube that exerts air pressure into the tube as it fills, make sure it's clear and open. The dishwasher has a sensor that monitors the door being closed too. Some use a hig ... Dishwashers

Dishwasher will not start when pressing the start button. Timer light flashed numbers and went off. None of the lights and buttons work. Circuit breaker in electrical panel is working. Does the on/off switch need replacing, or is it possible a mini circuit board is bad? Dishwasher installed in 2000 and is used on the average once per week.


As it is nearly 10 years old i would suggest you replacing the circuit board. To test exactly we would need the help of an continuity tester and multimeter. ... Bosch 24 in. SHU53 Built-in Dishwasher

My Bosch dishwasher Model SHE44C02UC just went completley dead while washing. My wife and I were in the living room and heard a ''pop'' and went to investigate. We discovered the dishwasher was completely dead with no lights on at all. The on/off switch does not work. I checked the breaker and it is okay. Also the disposal is also on this circuit and it still works so I know the circuit is okay. There is still water in the bottom of the dishwasher - no suds - so it may have been in a rinse cycle

My Frigidaire Dishwasher PLD4375RFC is showing 3 blinking lights at the same time when I flipped the power at the circuit breaker off-on: High Temp Wash, Air Dry on the touch pad and PF on the display. It would not respond to anything that I tried. All blinking lights are off and machine does nothing when I open and close the door. Flipped the circuit breaker off-on again to repeat the sequence. I replaced the controller board, as recommended by the appliance guy since he checked and said ele

I just bought the Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher model # 665.1389. It worked about 4 times then before the it finished it lost power while it was running. Now it won't turn back on at all.

Just had a Bosch dishwasher installed in my new kitchen. The plumber who installed it ran it and it worked. Now we cannot get it to run. We have tried everything. Restarted several times, turned the circuit breaker off and on, changed the cycle and nothing works. The light comes on but it does not get water or run. What are we doing wrong.

Test the door switch. It can be faulty or misaligned. You can also check the back of the unit and/or remove the rear panel and take a look at the thermal fuse. It may be bad not allowing enough current flow to operate the machine. ... Bosch SHU5316UC Dishwasher

I have a mdd8000aws dishwasher. After a power outage (2 days) the power came back on, and the bottom drawer no longer works. It still make the chiming noise when the drawer is opened, but the control panel is not fully lit up and the washer will not start in any mode. The lights seem to flicker for a short moment and then they all stay very lightly lit up. Is this just a bad control panel or is there some other circuit that needs replaced? BTW, the top drawer works perfectly.

I have a Kitchenaid Dishwasher Model KUDC25CHSS1. (Manual says KUDC25CH). The Delay Hours button is stuck on 2 hours. The manual says to cancel it, press it until no lights are on, but when we press it, the Child Lock light comes on. I tried pressing Energy Saver Dry to cancel the Child Lock, but that didn't cancel it. I tried turning off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes, but the same light(s) come back on when I re-set it.

Try a fan or light where the washer is plugged in. Suspect a bad power plug connection if the test works. The next suspect is a faulty microswitch connected with the door latch mechanism. You will likely need a test meter to track this down. Good luc ... LG 24 in. LD-12BW5 Free-standing Dishwasher
