Dishwasher Light Will Not Turn Off


  • Dishwasher light bulb will not turn off
  • Dishwasher light stays on
  • Dishwasher light switch not working
  • Tub lighting stays on when the door is closed


  • Light switch issue


A glow may be seen from the tub if the interior light will not turn off. If the dishwasher light will not turn off:

  1. Open and close the door a few times. If light starts to function, or flickers, it may be a switch issue that requires a service call.
  2. Turn the home circuit breaker to the unit off for 30 seconds then back on again then retest the unit operation.
  3. If these steps do not resolve the issue, no further troubleshooting advice is available. Contact Factory Certified Service to schedule an appointment for repair.
