Having problems with your Samsung Dishwashers ?

Had a Samsung DMT800RHS dishwasher installed by Sears 2 weeks ago. Used it approx. 4 times. Worked well. Today it doesn't turn on. None of the "touch-type" buttons on the console work. Home circuit breaker not tripped. Any ideas?

Hi. We have the same problem. Dishwasher was installed about 3 months ago. There is an easy 'temporary' fix.

Completely turn off the dishwasher by flipping the circuit breaker to the off position. Wait a couple of seconds, and flip the circuit breaker back to the on position.

The dishwasher console must be getting into a bad state and not sensing the console panel buttons. The circuitry in the dishwasher is never really "off" as some amount of power has to be "on" to be ready to sense the touch panel. Turning the circuit breaker off and back on likely resets all the functions and makes the unit operable. We have been operating the dishwasher this way for about a month now. Luckily for us, the circuit panel is 3 steps away from the dishwasher...but this is getting old.

Hopefully this solves your problem ... reply back here one way or another...if this turns out to be a common problem & solution,it will give me more faith that Samsung will be convinced of a problem when I call them after the holidays.
From reading all the posts from people with the same problem on DMT800RHS, Im convinced this is a common problem with this model. Your right, unplugging it and replugging it is a work around but Samsung needs to service these issues.

Whirlpool dishwasher The dishwasher works off and on. Every few days it stops going on altogether...only the cancel button goes on and the the dishwasher's timer says 2 minutes. Sometimes the air dry button works,but none of the other buttons work. The problem has been when the repair person comes out, it all of a sudden starts to work and so he can't diagnose the problem.

Dishwasher will not start when pressing the start button. Timer light flashed numbers and went off. None of the lights and buttons work. Circuit breaker in electrical panel is working. Does the on/off switch need replacing, or is it possible a mini circuit board is bad? Dishwasher installed in 2000 and is used on the average once per week.

GE GSD5320 seemed to finish all light wash cycles. Then it began to beep, with the NORMAL light blinking. I hit RESET, but none of the other buttons worked.

Help! My Whirlpool Quiet Partner II isn't working at all. Water was standing in bottom at end of last 2 cycles, but on the last cycle, I came home to clean looking dishes, standing water, and a machine that won't turn on at all- no lights on any buttons- nothing works. I've tried the reset codes published here and elsewhere, but there are no lights on any buttons at all. The circuit breaker is fine. I have 3 young kids and can't function long without my dishwasher!

PLD2560LCC1 Frigidaire Dishwasher...Control Panel shows 65 minutes left on lower rack, works for about 1 minute, shuts down. None of the buttons work. I changed the control (major circuit) board, same problem. I wonder if it's the control "panel"? I took that off and looked at it. Seems okay, but could the problem. I've heard this model has control problems, but I'm not sure if they mean the major control board or the control panel that has the buttons.

I have a Whirlpool model DU1055KJVQ1, Type 575-0 under-counter dishwasher which is less than 2 years old. In the last couple of weeks, it wouldn't start intermittently, and I would need to hit cancel on the keypad, and then restart. Now that doesn't work. When I try and start the dishwasher, it doesn't work. I press Normal for the cycle, heated dry for the Option, and then hit Start. The buttons light up for 20 seconds or so, nothing happens and then they go out. Any ideas?
