Answers :

Hi,

I am sorry to hear regarding the problem. You need to have some patience in order to find what's actually work with the Dishwasher. I cannot jump to the conclusion as there might be "N" number of reasons.

Now,

First of all, as you said Power is going into the machine, so there is no point of checking Cord, Switch and so on!!

The First thing to see , if you are getting any " Error Codes ". If Yes, let me know. Unless follow the below procedure :-

1. Wiring

\015\012\015\012 \015\012 Wiring\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012\011\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012 Often\015\012the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and\015\012breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be\015\012repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the\015\012wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower\015\012part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken,\015\012burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade\015\012wire and connectors.

2. Door Switch

\015\012\015\012 \015\012 Door switch\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012\011\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012 The\015\012door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher\015\012won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel\015\012cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective,\015\012you need to completely replace it.

3. Timer/Selector Switch

Although\015\012it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If\015\012so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these\015\012can be repaired.

Check all the above items. Again Do not Replace. Test and let me know, if there is any issue with this.

If No, let me know, the Make and Model of the machine along with some other symptoms - Like Is it Dead? or Humming Noise? Any other problem that you could see?

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

A feew weeks ago Smeg STA6047 dishwasher stopped in the beginning of the programme after approx. ten minutes, and gave the error code E9. There had been clearly water in the machine, but maybe not enough and the detergent box was not open. However, when technician came by two weeks after, the dishwasher worked and he said it was in order. But only after being used only once, the same problem reappeared. First the washer gave the error code E8, on the second try E9. And now it does not start at a

My dishwasher recently started leaving a white, chalky residue on all the dishes. It wasn't gradual at all. One day everything was fine and all the dishes clean and the next they were covered in nasty residue. We've ruled out any issues with soap, rinse agents and hard water. A appliance repair guy came out and said the float was "tampered" with and said that he fixed it. He said that if the problem came back we need to order a new float assembly kit. My husband has looked at it several times an

G851 SC Plus started to trip GFI plug. Called Miele and they said there was nothing wrong with the dishwasher and the GFI was faulty. Unplugged from GFI and plugged into regular plug and it worked for a few days. Eventually stopped running. How wrong Miele was, it had everything to do with the dishwasher and not the GFI. It was only warning me a problem was coming. Appliance man came out, noticed water in bottom pan and order new pump, said seal probably gone. Came back, replaced the pump, put d

I have a dishlex 750 eco. The control panel has not lights, but the internal dishwasher light still works. The repair guy said it needs a new circuit board, and not worth fixing. He could sell a reco one cheaper, although this machine is old it has hardly done any work. any thoughts? thanks dave..


The tech is quite correct, with this unit, the best thing to do is nothing. You need to put any prospective money that was going to be used for repair into NEW one with a full warranty, that way you can be sure of a reliable unit.\015\012\015\ ... Dishwashers

I purchased a Bosch dishwasher and had it installed into my new kitchen. It is plumbed and it does not work, a reapair man said it needs a new motherboard. My issue is that Bosch can't seem to supply central Wi. with this part. The repair place put the order in two and onehalf months ago and still cannot give me a date about when the part will be in. I have owned this dishwasher for five months and have not been able to use it once!

I have a Briggs & Stratton Pro 3400 pressure washer that I got new last year and used for maybe 5 hours and it worked great. Have had it stored since then with stabilizer in the gas (I didn't run it dry) and now it won't run for more than a minute or two without dying. A dealer said it was probably bad gas and I now know that even with the stabilizer I should have run it dry last year before storing. Everything is like brand-new including plug and air filter so it must be the gas/carberator gunk

Me service man never did that and when I asked him about it he said that is not the problem and would not replace it. So, before I just scrap my diswasher and but a new one I thought i would order another fuse k

Hi I have the Kitchenaid dishwasher KUDIO1FLSS2 and all the buttons work except the two most important ones, the heavy and normal cycle. I had a service person out about 6 mo. ago and he said the control panel was about to go bad and replaced a fuse. He ended up coming again a week later and replacing the fuse with a stronger fuse.

My Bosch Dishwasher SGS53E72AU has water left in the bottom on the quick programmes, but not on the longer, hotter ones. There is no blockage of the pipes and the pump is working OK. I have to assume that the electronics have dumped some of the programming. Could you confirm that I have to acquire a new timer/electronics package from somewhere? Or is there an easier and cheaper fix? Many thanks. Hope to hear from you soon.

It doesn't work at all no lights anywhere. I ordered and replaced new switches, and replaced the control board. The circuit breaker is on, and if I put one of the little meters that just tells if you have either 120 or 220 volts accross the two white wired connections on the board, 110 lights up. The float seeks to move freely.


If you have no lights at all and you have power to the circuit double check that the circuit board is connected properly first since you replaced that. On some models there is a safety circuit installed that disconnects power in the event it detects ... Kenmore 24 in. 15932 Built-in Dishwasher

The unit is 2 years old with very little use.
