Hello Stephanie Shcherban - Try resetting the unit by unplugging it for flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes. Restart unit and first confirm that the "child lock" option is not selected. However, if it proves to be ineffective and from what you have a described it sounds like the unit has a defective door lock switch, which will need replacing. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

We have a 6 year old Jenn Air dishwasher model JDB2150AWP We had a cracked door close unit which we replaced but got a short while restoring connections I am wondering if there is an internal circuit breaker, relay or fuse on these machines that we need to check and possibly replace since we cannot get it to run at all. No power or lights at all. I believe all connections are secure and we replaced the door close unit with new parts.

I have a Bosch SMU2046Uc/14 about 15 years old. Sometimes it works, sometimes not, for the last couple of months. Now it has stopped working completely as if no power. Checked the breaker. Another problem - one of our kids just today jammed the door lock on it and we cannot get the door to latch at all. Can you help with any one of these problems? How do you fix or reset the door latch??? What else can we check to troubleshoot the dishwasher? Thanks!

Dishwasher - Bosche - SHV43A03GB - When the main power switch is ON, even with the door open the pump/motor continues to run (ie. Stop-cycle does not operate). However, the wash-program itself does not run, even with the door closed (ie. No water entering the dishwasher, even though water supply is on and feed lines are clear - not kinked). It is like the program is 'stuck' and I cannot seem to get it to reset.

I've had an LG LDF6810ST dishwasher for about three years with no problems. All of a sudden it won't close. It finished the wash, I emptied it, and when I went to close the door it wouldn't close all the way. It was as if something was getting caught not allowing the door to close completely. I searched and found nothing blocking, then I looked at the door latch and it looks as if the child lock feature is engaged. So the door is locked while open. I turned the child lock on and off through the

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 GE Quiet Power 3 built in dishwasher. With 1 min. left in a cycle, I opened the door, removed an item, then closed the door again, but it didn't finish the cycle. The machine continued its single beeps to indicate the door was open. Reopened and closed the door. None of the buttons on the control panel respond. Have unplugged and left overnight, plugged back in, beeping continues.
