BOSCH Dishwasher model: SHE44C (or 46C). I opened door in middle of cycle. Went back several hours later to unload and discovered it had not completed cycle and failed to drain. It would appear there is no electric to machine. Checked breaker, good, depressed the 2 buttons on front panel and nothing happens. Nothing lights up. We cannot locate a schematic.

Whirlpool dishwasher model GU2-400-XTB7 Problem started with display cycling through delay times. (1 hr, 2hr, 3 hr and so on.) Was able to cancel that for short periods and then it would repeat the cycle. Was able to run dishwasher by pressing different buttons. Then it would start a cycle but did not run full cycle. Now control panel doesn't work at all. When buttons are pushed, lights do not light up and nothing happens. Is stuck in lock mode.

I own a whirlpool gold model #GU980SCGQ3 . After the rinse cycle the dishwasher stopped . The water has not drained out and nothing on the control panel works when you press the buttons. The breaker did not blow on our main fuse panel in the house. Something similar happened a year after we bought it and the electrical panel had to be replaced under warranty. Is this the same problem? or something different?

My Frigidaire dishwasher won't start. I just moved into a condo and the dishwasher worked during inspection but now it's not...wondering if it's something I just don't know about. The model number is fdbb944CS0. The panel lights up when you select the different cycle options but when I hit start nothing happens. The control panel isn't locked either- I saw some forums about that. The water supply is on...help!

I have a KitchenAid KUD1021RWHO dishwasher that will not turn on when I hit the start button. The LED lights work when I press cycle selection ie. "normal" but when I press the start button nothing happens. I have waited for a couple of hours and then it will start. However during the last week it has happened more frequently and now it has not worked for the last (2) days. Any ideas as to what the problem may be? Thank you for your help!!!


Hello,\015\012\015\012This is a very common issue on these units. The touch pad has failed. You can try to flip the breaker off for several minutes and see if that clears the code. More than likely the touch pad will need to be replaced.\015\01 ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI02IR Built-in Dishwasher

Dishwasher will not finish/start a cycle. The washer filled with water and during the cycle I heard a pop like someone knocked something over in the kitchen. I smelled an electrical burning smell. All the lights and the buttons work on the front panel, but when I try to start I hear an electrical buzz like it is trying to start, but nothing happens and after 3 seconds the electrical buzzing stops and the lights on the panel flash. I removed the dishwasher and found that when I hit the start butt

Hello Greg,\015\012\015\012Your diagnosis is pretty good, but the buzzing suggests it may be the capacitor for the pump motor that has failed rather than the pump motor itself. The capacitor phase-shifts the AC current for starting the mo ... GE 24 in. GSD3960LSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

For the GE 24 in. GLD5560LSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher, I reset the breaker on the service panel, the unit is on but I press a wash cycle and press start and nothing happens. Is there a fuse inside the control panel of the dishwasher?

I have a kitchenaid dishwasher, SS, model # KUDIO1ILBL6. When you press the ''normal'' button to run it, nothing happens. Tried other cycles and same thing, the green light goes on above the cycle but its just not starting. I tried resetting by opening, pressing high temp scrub then energy saver dry, high temp scrub, energy save dry, then close and hit cancel. Is there any other combo to reset it? or does it sound like something else is wrong? thanks!

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

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?

I just bought this house with this dishwasher built in. I have pushed the door shut, pressed the heat dry button to lock the door and pressed the start button. Nothing happens.

I'd like to use it... any ideas. Its a Kenmore Elite model # 665 17052 402. Thank You

I have a F&P dishwasher model DW60CDX1 (around 5 years old) which we cannot start a cycle. The dishwasher turns on (power button and all programme indicators light up) but when you press a programme button nothing happens - the lights don't change. We have switched the power off at the powerpoint and on again a few times but this has not rectified the problem. It was playing up before this in that sometimes the programme would not start when a button was pressed but I just closed the door mor

Won't start. Seemed to be working fine a day ago. Then in mid cycle I opened the door because I was on the phone and it was too noisy (normal noise). Now , I shut the door and press start and nothing happens. No lights on the instrument panel. Nothing. Thanks.


You may have simply tripped a breaker, but if not it may be this.This may be a faulty door switch. If you look into the door locking mechanism carefully, you can see a small plastic bulb located either to the right or left of the locking Jaw. S ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDU02FR Built-in Dishwasher

My 12 yr old KitchenAid -Sculptura-Model KUDR24SE starts to fills with water and then does nothing else. It will eventually go through the cycles on the panel, but nothing is happening inside. End result is still dirty dishes with water sitting in the bottom that has to be baled out. Cups on top rack don't have any water on the indentations, so it's obvious that the thing filled with water and that's it. I had the motor replaced (supposedly with a new) one 2 years ago so I find it hard to bel

Kenmore Ultra Wash Model 665 - 158* Front panel not working properly. Pressing Normal does not light that option. The only option that lights is "Quick Rinse", pressing this lights that option and also the "No Heat Dry" light. After a few seconds the lock light comes on. Looks to me that the "No Dry Heat" button is stuck on, which causes all the other things to happen Is there a way to fix this?

Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher Model 665.15779 LOCK ON light blinking on control panel, unable to use washer. If buttons were locked, LOCK ON light should be lit continually not flashing. If you press and hold NO HEAT DRY button to disengage lock, nothing happens. If you press the CANCEL button it begins to blink in unison with the LOCK ON light. How can I stop the light from blinking to allow button function again?
