Electrolux dishwasher buttons light up but unit doesn't turn on

\015 Electrolux dishwasher buttons light up but unit does not start. Can't find model # but looks like EDW5000ss series.\015

Answers :

Sorry to hear that you are having problems with you appliance.

That failure is caused by a bad circuit board or the buttons are not working properly, quite hard to diagnose without looking at it. Do you get an error code? I believe it needs to be repaired by an experienced tech repair person.

By the way, the model number is located at the frame, Open the dishwasher and look at the right side (maybe left side), not at the door, the frame itself.
Hi,

I would simply divide the troubleshoot into small guide :-

\015\012\015\012 \015\012 Power from the house

\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012\011\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012 Is\015\012there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test,\015\012because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical\015\012circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a\015\012blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.

\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012\011\015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012 Door switch

\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012\011\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012 The\015\012door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher\015\012won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel\015\012cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective,\015\012you need to completely replace it.

\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012\011\015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012 Wiring

\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012\011\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012 Often\015\012the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and\015\012breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be\015\012repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the\015\012wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower\015\012part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken,\015\012burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade\015\012wire and connectors.

\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012\011\015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012 Timer or selector switch\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012\011\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012 Although\015\012it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If\015\012so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these\015\012can be repaired.\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012

The Procedure to check Timer is :-

If problem persists, it sounds to be a Control Board. Check and replace it, if necessary.

EDW5505EPS Electrolux Dishwasher. One cycle light stays on, but the other lights will not turn on when buttons are depressed. Unit will not turn on at all. I assume the control board is bad?

My Maytag dishwasher goes for long stretches when it won't turn on even though I push the proper buttons. The buttons won't light either. It turns on by itself after a couple of weeks of sitting idle. Some of the lights may blink on the start panel while the dishwasher doesn't work, but only on occasion will it fully operate. I have turned off the power and turned it back on, hoping to reset the computer part of the dishwasher. It didn't work.

I have a Gallery 900 series GLDB958AS dishwasher. The cycle status lights (just right of the "time remaining" status window) continually blink. None of the buttons on the front panel work and every 10 minutes or so the water pump starts up for about a minute then shuts off. No water enters the dishwasher. I tried turning the power off then on but there is no change. Every so often a random cycle light will blink or light up for a minute, then turns off.
