Answers :

Contact a professional technician to see if the spray loaded action needs to be replaced with a new cup area.
If you press start and here a slight humming noise but no water or washing action then this is usually caused by 1 of several components needed in sequence to start the wash proccess.
Most modern dishwashers will begin by running the drain pump for a few seconds before filling with water and some models just begin filling with water straight away. In either case when you press "start button" if you here a faint buzzing or humming noise this indicates power going to a pump motor or water valve but its not actually working (burnt out component or getting very hot) If you cant here any noise at all, then smell around the button panel or control board and you may smell a distinct odour of burnt plastic or computer components meaning there is an electical fault with the computer board. This is often caused by accidental water leak or spill onto the buttons OR cockroaches and insects nesting on the warm controller parts and short circuiting the electronics.
If the dishwasher is more than 8 years old it may not be worth the money for costly service repairs usually around $300 - $500. Its sad we live in such a disposable world these days, but I'd suggest if its older model you may as well spend a little extra and get a new machine which has a warranty.

I have a bosch dishwasher model number SGS0902GB/05. I use tablets instead of detergent. I put the tablet in the Dispenser and close the lid, noproblem.

Our Kitchenaid dishwasher model # KUDP021R will not start. We close door, select wash and press start. The control lock light at the top which is lit flashes a few times and then stays lit. Dishwasher remains silent. An aside which may be helpful is that the door has always seemed to be not quite straight...as though it had to warp a tiny bit to close and lock.


The problem you have already identified could be the door switch is not closing when you shut the door. Please confirm your dishwasher is KUDP02I (i and not 1).\015\012\015\012One way to check is find out the door switch on the door panel ... KitchenAid Dishwashers

I have a frigidaire FDB1050REC0 dishwasher that is working fine most of the time. Sometimes about 40 percent of the time, when we open the main door after it is finished with a normal cycle, we find a big clump of detergent left in the main detergent compartment and the detergent door is open. It is like the detergent is getting wet with the detergent door closed and then when it is supposed to open, the detergent is wet and clumps. We switched to liquid detergent and the same thing is happening

2 brand new Kenmore elite dishwashers - All hookups checked and correct. Start buttons blink - cycles will not start. 1 washer ran for about 10 seconds - then the light started blinking. Troubleshooting in manual says light will blink if the door is not closed. They seem pretty closed. Dishwashers leveled and plumb. Tried it mounted, and unmounted. No Luck. Thanks

Myy kitchenaid dishwasher model kudi01flss doesn't start even though the lights on the panel light up so I opened up the door to look at the latch and found a broken plastic piece that appears to be part of the latch. Could this be why the machine doesn't start. The funny this is the door still seems to snap closed even with this broken piece but what I'm thinking is that this piece activates some sort of electrical connection that turns the machine on when the door is closed.

Have a Bosch shy56a05uc dishwasher that suddenly stopped working to a point. I believe it is related to the door latch switch, because I don't feel the door securely latch shut when I close it, and I also don't get any cycle lights or times registered on the LED readout. If I depress the on switch, the drain pump will start even with the door open, and, depending on how long I leave the switch on, water will start to fill in the dishwasher, open or not.

I have a 4 year old Maytag MDBH945AWW and the panel lights come on and I can select cycles... but the dishwasher wont start. I tried holding the start cancel button, tried turning the breaker off for a couple of hours, took the inner panel off the door and checked the latch, but its still wont start. Any other suggestions? If it needs a new control panel its probably better to just get a new similar dishwasher for $300, correct?


What you need to do is read for continuity and power across the door latch switch. (2 white wires) AND 2 Black wires Both wires must read continuty at the control panel connectors to the power source terminals for the unit to start. Since the co ...
