Steps to Verify Issue:

  1. Verify that the power cable is properly plugged into the wall socket and there is power to the unit.
    • The dishwasher may be on a power switch located under the kitchen sink area.
    • Verify (if connected to a switch) that the switch was not turned off.
    • Check the fuse box for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.
  2. Verify a program has been selected before pressing Start.
    • The Start button may have been pressed for too short a time.
    • Current dishwashers incorporate a safety feature that requires the door to be closed within 4 seconds of pressing the Start button.
  3. Confirm that the door is closed securely.
  4. Verify the Delay Start option is not turned on.
    • Open the door and press Cancel to cancel Delay Start.
  5. Verify the control panel is clean and dry.
  6. Verify the water supply is connected properly and the water is turned on.
  7. Turn the home circuit breaker to the unit off for 10 seconds, then back on again. Retest the unit operation.
