  1. In models with a water softener, the unit may pause midcycle to charge the softener before continuing. Refer to Cove Dishwasher Water Softener Regeneration for more information.
  2. Verify that the power cord is properly plugged into the wall socket and there is power to the unit.
    • The dishwasher may be on a power switch 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.
  3. Confirm that the door is closed securely.
  4. Verify the water supply is connected properly and the water is turned on.
