Hello there:
\015\012 It doesn't work at all \015\012\011 \011\011 \011 \015\012 If your dishwasher doesn't work at all, check these: first \015\012\011 \011\011 \011 \015\012 Power from the house \015\012\011 \011\011 \011 \015\012 Door switch \015\012\011 \011\011 \011 \015\012 Wiring \015\012\011 \011\011 \011 \015\012 Timer or selector switch \015\012\011 \015\012 \011\011 \011 \015\012 Power from the house \015\012\011 \011\011 \011 \015\012 Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker. \015\012\011 \015\012 \011\011 \011 \015\012 Door switch \015\012\011 \011\011 \011 \015\012 The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it. \015\012\011 \015\012 \011\011 \011 \015\012 Wiring \015\012\011 \011\011 \011 \015\012 Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors. \015\012\011 \015\012 \011\011 \011 \015\012 Timer or selector switch \015\012\011 \011\011 \011 \015\012 Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.

\015\012Dishwasher Repair Guide: How To Fix a Dishwasher - ACME HOW TO.com\015\012
\015\012Please find above A couple of service and repair manuals for your generic dishwasher, use these to troubleshoot and hopefully repair your unit, below them, is a DIY help link, that should prove invaluable.\015\012
\015\012This "Fix" below, works many times regardless of why... So it is worth a try.\015\012\015\012Ok so your dishwasher won't do anything... it justs sits there and "Hums" you can't make it respond to any controls, and the ONLY way to Stop it. is to unplug the unit, replugging back in it simply "Hums" again and will do nothing.
Now this happens because, the STOP Button, is pressed and the "Door Opened", during the Wash Cycle. This should NOT be done. You should NEVER TURN IT OFF MID-CYCLE. you should instead, Simply, pull on the handle, to Open the door, the system will take care of everything, after, you close it,and pick up where it left off. The turning OFF, makes the machine "Think" that a New Cycle, is going to be done, before the old one is finished, and resets itself to do it all again. But it still has water, that's not meant to be there so it must dump it out.
Now, the FIX. Take the Dishwasher, out, and tip over on it's side, tip to about a 45' angle. Water will come out from underneath, this is from a small "Overflow" reservoir. this reservoir has an "Anti-Flood" switch. The removing of this water will "Reset" this Switch, and allow the dishwasher to work again.
So what happens, is this, when the STOP button is pressed Mid-Cycle, the machine must "Dump" whatever water is still in the machine, into the "Overflow Reservoir". This water then causes the Anti-flood switch to jam, and this stops the machine, until it is reset,by the above method.

Dishwasher has been stored. Was working fine-ish for first half dozen washes. Now not starting wash. From troubleshooting in manual I'm holding down first two buttons and it's saying "End", but keeps moving back to SOAK function (17 mins) and not doing anything. Display shows whole soak cycle to run, but on holding down start button it makes no difference - doesn't beep to acknowledge and start cycle.

Hi, I have had a few issues with my ST663 machine. The current problem: the rinse cycle light keeps flashing and it doesn't start when you shut the door. I have tried holding down the right button but it beeps twice and nothing happens? Also tried holding both buttons down for a while and still no success. I got a new electrical board installed not that long ago so not very happy hoping it not a big issue. Do you have any other things that I could maybe do?
