Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Our Dishwasher is not draining. We tried to run a test cycle and noticed there is no power. We checked the Electrical Panel and noticed that an unmarked breaker was tripped. We turned it on but still have no power. All other electrical items are working in the house. Is the power being cut off as a fail-safe function due to the water not draining? How do I fix the drain/pump? Please Help!


Answers :

Hi,
No, the water is a result of the dishwasher going off mid-cycle...
Take the front kickplate off and see if you have power at the makeup box...you will need an electrical meter to check that...
if there is power there then you have a problem in the dishwasher...
if there is no power there then the problem is in the breaker/wiring of the house...

The dishwasher problem could be a bad wire, or the control went bad...
The motor may also have gone bad and kicked the breaker...and at the same time ruined the control...

The hidden control panel has only about half the lights showing what function is pressed. A couple of days ago the washer would not start. The only function which would work was the far left sensor light. After trying to cut power and pushing other buttons, to no avail, we let the machine sit a couple days. It now works again with only half the lights on function pad working. It acts like there was a electrical short.


First retrieve the tech spec sheet behind the toe-kick panel located near the floor and run the diagnostics if it will let you do so w/o the full operation of the keys on the pad,then if it wont the touchpad or keyboard on the front that you use to s ...

Two days ago my LG dishwasher model lDF 7810BB worked fine. Yesterday I loaded it and the display panel will not light nor show any sign of power. I check the circuit breaker several times and all other electrical items work fine in the kitchen. The 2 year warranty expired 9/08/08


Check for voltage with a multimeter at the wires very near the front, just behind the kick plate. Follow the incoming electrical wire in and remove the little plate the covers the wires/wire nuts. I have seen wires that appear to be connected prope ... LG 24 in. LDF7810 Built-in Dishwasher

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?

There seems to be an electrical fault in my dishwasher. It is a slimline candy dishwasher purchased only three years ago. Everytime I try to start it all the electricity goes in the downstairs of my house. I changed the fuse twice and it worked for a while only for the same thing to happen again. I also tried to turn off all other electical equipment downstairs to see if this made a difference, but it still didn't work. Would you have any idea what is wrong with it? Thanks. S. Byrne

When we switch the dishwasher on it trips the electricity. It's worked fine for 2 years but now won't work at all and just trips the electricity.


Your dishwasher has a serious electrical safety fault which is causing the protective breaker to trip (although it may have a simple and cheap cause). With all due respect, your question clearly demonstrates that you lack the knowledge and skills to ... Beko Dishwashers

I have an 8 year-old Kenmore 665.16912 dishwasher. Worked fine until two days ago. Then it stopped working altogether: nothing lights up on the front panel. I have checked the 120 in the electrical box, the door switch is working, the thermal fuse is working and there is 120 volts at the white and black connections to the timer control board. I bought a new timer control board for $120 and that did not fix the problem. What else could be causing the unit to completely stop working?

I have a Maytag quiet series 300, model # MDBTT60AWW. The front control panel have some green lights on but the start/cancel button won't work. The dishwasher will work for 5 days and quit for 2-3 days then work again. I tried to reset the main electrical panel hoping the dishwasher will reset too but it didn't work.

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 the start butt

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,

Need help my oven is not working, the self cleaning works fine, the broiler also works, but the oven will not heat. what can i do? Our Kenmore gas range will not heat to the proper temp.

I have an electric power washer model PW181000AV with about 25 hours on it. Got home from my winter retreat and used the power washer about 1/2 hour on the driveway. Everything worked fine. Went to complete the job the next day, and the motor would not power on. No sounds at all, like it wasn't getting electricity. Did the standard trouble shooting with ground fault and on my own electrical system. Been using the same outlet for all the time I have owned the power washer, so distance is no

I have a whirlpool DWH B10W. Last week the main drain outside blocked and none of my service machines were working (not draining). The main drain has now been unblocked and every machine except the dishwasher are now working fine. The plumber has checked the drainpipes again and says all are now clear. When I try to use the dishwasher, after the initial drain it stops and starts beeping at me. I have also noticed that no water is going into the machine. What's happening?

Hello, We have a combination oven and dishwasher. Last week I filled up the dishwasher and after about 5 minutes a blue spark came out at the bottom and it cut the electricity off. Once the electricity was restored we started it again and after a few minutes it just stopped after filling up with water. It blew a fuse again but only one fuse this time and now doesn't switch on anymore. We have emptied all the water from the dishwasher and checked the filter, etc and wonder what could have gone wr

I have a Maytag MDB8951bws and I have noticed that the dishes at the end of the cycle do not feel hot but mildly warm and not completely dry. I also noticed that when I select the ''Sanitize'' option the light that tells you the dishes have completed being sanitized does not come on after the cycles are completely finished (the ''clean'' light does come on). One last note I will throw in is that the high temp wash seems to work quite well as a lot of steam is expelled when the door is opened dur

My Kitchenaid dishwasher Model KUDPO1FLSS3 stopped working. The electrical works, as we checked the breaker and the little lights on the panel turn on, but the machine will not start. We're thinking there might be a problem with the connection where the door closes. We've checked out everything we can think of, but no luck. The plastic panel is worn away in places, so some of the buttons are exposed-can't imagine that matters, though. Help!

Hi, my name is GAD. i work at a conference center. our model is quite an old version of the MH65-70 - maybe 1985?
