Like most anything that requires a power source\015\012to function, the first place to look when it is no longer working is\015\012the electrical connection or power plug. Once you know it has power, it\015\012is a simple process of following the circuit until we find the point\015\012the electricity stops. But it isn't always that easy because we must\015\012remember, for electrical components to function, there must be a\015\012complete circuit for electrons to flow. Which means, just because we\015\012have power, doesn't mean we have an electrical circuit. For this\015\012reason, it is important when taking electrical voltage measurements to\015\012always check for voltage in reference to a neutral wire and not the\015\012frame of the unit.

I have a Kenmore Elite 665 Dishwasher. The front control display has been partially working but the dishwasher still worked. Today when we tried to start it it will do nothing & it is getting the correct power. Would this be the control circuit board or something else?

Kenmore dishwasher 16934 will not start up for me. I can push any button to set the cycle(pots & pans, china gentle, quick rinse, normal wash) and the time shows up in the display, but when I push the start, two red horizontal lines appear in the time remaining display. Cannot get the machine to start anything. All cycle buttons give me some kind of time remaining display but as I said, it ends up with 2 red lines. Thanks in advance. Mark

I have a kitchenaid dishwasher model kuds24se with a problem. I MUST hit cancel before I hit start. Note that it doesn't matter how long it's been since the last cycle. It could be a few minutes or a day or more. I have to hit start to get a complete wash cycle. If I don't hit cancel, the washer goes through some sort of cycle and stops. It seems like a normal cycle but of course it is not because I don't hear any water and, upon completion, when I open the door there is heat but the soap dispen

Kitchen Aid Dishwasher - model: KUDPO2CRBLOrn Ran the dishwasher twice on pots/pans cycle and sani rinse with a special cleaner recommended due to build up and items not getting clean.

Even if I choose them, when I hit the "start" button - the machine will not start. No other lights will light. Machine will not start. Any ideas?? Thank you!!!

Lights work, dishwasher works but "start" button won't start it. I can get it to work sometimes by hitting a few of the buttons back and forth. Otherwise, I can't get it to start.

We have a 2003 KitchenAid KUDI01IL Dishwasher that will not start . We had problems with the top rack dishes getting clean and we replaced the chopper. The dishwasher worked fine for one cycle, but now will not start. The buttons have lights except for the high temp scrub light. The dishwasher will drain when cancel is hit but that is it.

Dishwasher starts and runs to 2nd rinse cycle, when pump starts to pump water out, all lights on front display flash along with key pab lights blinking. you can turn off and restart, but is does the same. Diswasher will also try to start when in off mode. Replaced circuit board and it does to same. Did I get a bad circuit board or is there another problem. Also when I try water service test, I get a Rinse aid fault.

Hello, I've been working on a Bosch Dishwasher. It has no display of any kind, and there's a strange grunting sound coming from the wash motor when power is applied (like if you had just plugged it in), as if it's trying to start. The junction box is getting 120V, all connections to the junction box are fine, and the display board and the main control board are all getting the proper voltage. Now, we've already replaced the main control board and the problem persists. The tech line suggested

Maytag Quiet Series 800 dishwasher won't start. The only button that I can get to work is pressing and holding the locking feature--that light eventually comes on. A couple of times I came back in an hour or so or the next morning and hit the start button and it started right up. Now it won't start at all. VERY FRUSTRATING!

I have a Siemens dishwasher and can't get it to start. The display on the front shows "Doesn't start". I don't know why and what to do. Is there a child safe lock? The water is on, the program chosen etc. It should be a no brainer but it won't start. Please help, thanks! I don't know the model number due to it being my brothers house and I can't find any serial number anywhere.

I purchased my Kenmore Elite dishwasher, model # 8542514, in 2003 & replaced the control board in 2006. Recently, I accidently opened the dishwasher during a wash cycle, but it continued working once I closed it. It seemed to work fine for a few more weeks. Now, however, I get nothing--no lights....just doesn't start up. I tried pressing all the code solutions listed on this site, but no luck so far. It seems to me that the control board/panel should last more than 3-4 years.
