I have a KitchenAid Dishwasher KUDIO1iLBS2 and none of the lights come on and if I press any of the buttons nothing happens. The unit is getting power to it as I shocked myself. I did ordered and replaced the control board and still nothing is happening. Any suggestions or ideas? Is there a reset button or is there a possible fuse that is out that would make the lights not come on? Please help.

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!

Lights on Dishwasher light up but nothing happens. When I reset power it lights up the high temp and sanitize button light up and LED displays PF. After I open the door they stop flashing. the far left five buttons light up when I push them and a corresponding number displays on the LED screen. the only lights that do not come on are the Delay button and power button. Don't know if they are working or just don't light up. No matter what lights up the unit does not turn on....:( ? help can't fin

I have a bosch SHU8815UC dishwasher. It was already installed when i moved into my apartment - so I'm unsure of the age. The dishwasher isn't functioning. When I open the door, the "Clean" light and the PowerScrub button are red. When i close the door, the light go off but nothing happens. One time I closed the door, it started to rev up but would shut off and beep three times after about 1 min. No water comes out. Any ideas? Thanks! June

Bosch shu8806 Hello, I aquired a shu8806 recently and it doesn't work. It has power and water. 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. When plugged in, the wire from the motor is 120V but when jumpered to the neutral(common on the door switch), motor doesn't operate. Although, I have heard the motor turn over momentarialy when trying to run unit e

Bosch SHX33A: lights come on properly in response to buttons, it has power. Close door, it makes the normal startup sounds, then water flows in. Normally, at this point washer starts into normal cycle. Instead, it just sits there and nothing happens. Forever. Not a matter of patience: we've left it in that state all night long. Have flipped power circuit and started over, everything else I can think of to kick-start it, no change.

The power is going to the dishwasher. The on off buttons work. No error codes. The salt light is lite (has been for 5 years) but now I get zero response when shutting the door (after selecting any of the 6 run options). There is no noise, no water, nothing happens. How do I repair this dishwasher so that it will run again?

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?

Control panel buttons don't work. Seem to be stuck in the "Lock On" mode. Can't turn off, and dishwasher won't run. When you open the door all lights go off, but as soon as you relatch the door, the "Lock On" light comes on, although sometimes it can be another light. In any case, it won't run.

I have a Magtag dishwasher, model #MDB6650AWQ thats not running. I check the power supply all the way up to the door latch and it shows that there's power there. However the circuit panel not lighting up and nothing happens when you push the normal wash cycle or any of the other buttons. I believe the problems is electrical in the door latch handle. Is there any way to check the solenoids which are attached to the door handle before I order a new door latch.

No Power Hi. My dishwasher wont start. I loaded it and cannot get any lights to light up on it. There is no power to it at all it seems. I tried flipping the breaker but there is still nothing. The door locks, so that shouldnt be the issue. Is there a way to reset the machine? What should I do?
