My dishwasher's buttons will not work at all. Nothing is lighting up. I have already checked the breaker (not tripped, but I turned it off and then on again just to rule that out)... I assume that it is some control panel (the manufacturer said that it is a covered part... but I will have to pay the tech to come and install). Just trying to determine if it would be something that I can do myself and save some $. the unit is only 3.5 years old...

Control panel will not light up, the dishwasher was running and now it has stopped mid cycle and will not do anything. I just replaced the control panel (black plastic with buttons, not control circuitry). was running the diswasher and it seemed to be working fine, then stopped. water is standing in tub, I checked the float, I don't think the float is the problem. There is power to the outlet, no tripped breakers. But control panel will not light up.

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?

The Start button does not light up, yet the left side did light up for wash cycles. I'm guessing the PC Control board has some issue with touch button panel, as a faint high pitched shrill can be heard from the board after I took the door off and put my ear to the board. Also, over time the left side of the panel stopped lighting up too, so I through the circuit breaker. Can you advise which component it is. I'm guessing the faint high pitched shrill is the PC COntrol board attempting to communi

I have a Kenmore Elite Dishwasher Model 665.13773K600. It seems to have no power to the touch pad (top) control panel. I have already checked the circuit breaker and the power to the dishwasher. A friend said that it may perhaps be the thermo fuse cut out that needs to be replaced. 1) Is this true? 2) How can I remove the 1" thick control panel touch pad after removing the six screws- it seems to be stuck, and I don't want to break the plastic touchpad.

Quit mid cycle - no apparent power issue - house breaker OK - Outlet OK - Will not do anything - Checked the one fuse I could find in the control panel area - it tested OK. Is there another fuse/breaker in the dishwasher that may be the issue?


There may be a thermal fuse in the rear of the machine. If the door switch is faulty (which is common) then the machine won't do anything either. You can test the power from the power inverter to the control board with an ohmmeter to see if there is ... Whirlpool Gold GU2475XTV Builtin Dishwasher

My kitchen aid dishwasher model # kudpo1flss3 stopped near the end of a cycle and now it is not responding or indicating power at the control panel. It has a little bit of water left in the tub but must have been close to completion as the dishes were clean. The breaker is on & there is power up to the connection @ the appliance. Almost acts like a main fuse is blown or something....


You will need to have the mains plug removed and the power cord traced up to the control panel which is the main program controller unit. It seems that the program controller has failed and if so the fuse would have blown with a reason m ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDS01FLSS Built-In Dishwasher

Our Dishwasher is not draining. We tried to run a test cycle and noticed there is no power. We checked the Electrical Panel and noticed that an unmarked breaker was tripped. We turned it on but still have no power. All other electrical items are working in the house. Is the power being cut off as a fail-safe function due to the water not draining? How do I fix the drain/pump? Please Help!

The contol lock LED is illuminated on the front panel of my Maytag dishwasher. (Neither my wife nor I pressed the control lock for 3 seconds!) We've tried to extinguish it by pressing it for 3 to 5 seconds, but it remains ON. We've turned off the breaker to the dishwasher overnight, but when we turn the breaker back On, the contol lock LED comes on. We simply can't unlock the control panel. We can tell that all of the other buttons work just fine because pressing any of them causes the 3 Sec LED

Control Panel won't let me hit the start button. The dishwasher is a little over a year old and is used at most once a week. The blue light on the bottom right of the dishwasher seems to no longer light up. The control panel will let me select the wash, but the start button and time indicator does not light up. Not sure if this a real defect and if just a simple exchange of the front control panel will fix the problem? Already tried resetting the circuit breaker and that did not help. Than

I have a Bosch she44c dishwasher that I used just this morning. This afternoon I went to turn it on and a fuse in the panel box tripped. Is there something in the dishwasher that could go bad that quickly or is it most likely something else? Every time I reset the fuse and turned on the dishwasher, it tripped again. Leaving the dishwasher off, it doesn't trip.

The controls on my GE GLD4600N10WW have on occasion locked up. In the past, I have resolved this by turning the breaker off and back on. It has now locked up, but won't reset. When the breaker is turned back on, the dishwasher control panel lights indicate "Normal Wash" and "Heated Dry" but the controls do not respond. After several minutes the lights simply go dark. It does not respond to any button pushing.

I had a problem with my dishwasher popping the breaker. I opened the bottom and found burnt up wires. I fixed those and now the dishwasher stays on and begins its cycle (by draining) but the water is not flowing to the machine. It has supply, and I just now replaced the water inlet valve- no difference. The water was working before the breaker issue. I'm wondering if it is now something as simple as a clog somewhere since the washer sat unused for a month; or, if it is something more compli


I read your previous problem. This appears to be separate problems. The first was likely a loose wire. When a wire has a loose connection they build heat and can melt. The current issue would seem like the float switch is stuck. The float switch is ... Bosch SHU9925UC Built-in Dishwasher
