Zanussi zdt6053 in built dishwasher not starting. When pressing the control panel on/off button the 65 deg normal wash light comes on. When pressing the program selection button nothing happens. When closing the door the machine does not start up. Is there a fault in the control panel circuit board? Would water pressure prevent the machine from operating?

Have a 4 year old Kenmore Dishwasher Model # 74382. No problems at all until last week I went to start it and it would not turn on. Lights on the control panel were on with exception to the start light. I opened and shut the door to make sure it clicked and pressed the start button again and nothing. I tapped around the panel with the side of my fist and pressed it again and it began working. Well today different story I went to start it and it did the same thing. I tapped all over front of the

The start button on KitchenAid model #kudp01flbl6 will not engage, although all of the other lights in the control panel light when pressed. The cancel button will turn off the other lights in the control panel as well. This diswasher is 5 yeras old and lightly used in a household of just 2 professional adults. I've had service come and he uncovered a "burned' conection in the electronic control assembly p/n 8564542, which looked to me to be P8. A new electronic control panel was installed

I have a mdd8000aws dishwasher. After a power outage (2 days) the power came back on, and the bottom drawer no longer works. It still make the chiming noise when the drawer is opened, but the control panel is not fully lit up and the washer will not start in any mode. The lights seem to flicker for a short moment and then they all stay very lightly lit up. Is this just a bad control panel or is there some other circuit that needs replaced? BTW, the top drawer works perfectly.

My Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner III dishwasher will not start. I have installed a replacement control board that worked for awhile. When it quit I put the old control board back and it worked for awhile with a portion of the lights on the control panel lighting up. After switching control boards back and forth, it will not work at all now. It will run through the diagnostic program (Normal, Heated Dry, Normal, Heated Dry) but after that the start button plus other buttons are not lit so it will

I have a Whirlpool dishwasher model #DU920PFGQ4. The controls locked light is flashing, and when I press the air dry key for 5 seconds it won't unlock, however the cancel/drain light starts flashing. When I press the cancel key the controls lock light will stop flashing, but will resume as soon as I release the cancel key. I have tried disconnecting power for 24 hours, but as soon as I plug it back up it does the same thing. Nothing else on the control panel will work.

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

GU1500XTLS3 Periodically won't start. Dishwasher has power because pressing cancel causes dishwasher to start draining (even though there is no water). Door switch works because opening door prevents starting drain cycle. No other button on control panel will work except for the 'air dry' / 'lockout' button. Turning off circuit breaker for 15-30 minutes and then turning circuit breaker back on seems to fix the problems but only for a couple uses and then it stops working again. Need ad

Whirlpool "Quietflight II" - Will not start. The button for "Delay" works, and the button for "Cancel/Drain" works. Pressing this button will drain the unit. No other buttons will work, however, and the unit will not start. Ideas?
