Cove Dishwasher Turns on by Itself


  • Dishwasher started running on its own
  • Dishwasher turned on and started a program without touching it
  • Hear dishwasher running but did not turn it on
  • Dishwasher powers on without pressing buttons


  1. Open the door and see if there is standing water in the bottom of the unit.
    • The drain pump may have been activated to clear out standing water.
  2. Turn the unit off at the circuit breaker then back on to see if it turns on by itself again.


If these steps do not resolve the issue, no further customer troubleshooting advice is available. Contact Factory Certified Service to schedule an appointment for repair.
