Will not start, no lights on panels, check the power its ok by using tester on the outlet.
Answer Noel, If you have power at the outlet, your next check is at the electrical junction box on the frame of the dishwasher, behind the lower access panel and kick plate. Remove the cover and check to make sure the wire connections have not come loose or are discolored or damaged. If all's OK, you'll want to remove the inner door liner, and check the control panel thermal fuse W10258275 If it opens, it will remove power to the control board and the dishwasher will not operate and the lights will not illuminate.
The door has trouble latching but when it does the lights for cycles come on but the unit does not operate. The outside handle seems to be stuck sometimes and doesn't release
This issue sounds like it is being caused by a faulty door latch assembly and handle not making proper contact to latch. This will also have to do with the switches not making contact.
The quick rinse light flashes red on my control panel (randomly) when the door is latched and unlatched - the machine will not run. If I unplug and replug the ribbon to the electronic control it stops the flashing light and the machine will then run - which part would be causing this issue - the control panel or the electronic control ?
Answer Barbara, You'll want to start by checking or replacing the control panel / key pad assembly 8269819. STUCK KEY: If the control detects that a key is stuck in the depressed position, dishwasher operation will be suspended and the control will flash the light for that key until the condition is corrected. If a key without a light is stuck or multiple keys are stuck, the control will flash the light for the Rinse Only/Quick
