Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
yes we checked that. The lights don't come on.
are you talking about the panel on the breaker box or the dishwasher
This may sound dumb but is that on the outside of the door at the very bottom with the door closed.
We are trying that now.
if we are looking right this panel in on the floor underneat the door. It looks like it is setting on the floor. Is that correct.
my husbank took the cover off the box and checked the wires and he can't see anything wrong.
he thiinks he might. he is checking.
he found something that has 2 prongs shaped like a y attached to a little blue power tester. would this be it?
it is a GE ac/ dc .it look like 50 - 300 volts
does that panel have 8 screws?
In a diagram all of the screws are not shown so I am not sure. The ones across the top inside of the door and a couple down the sides at the top.Barry

ok i think we go it. give us a few minutes.
Did you get my last reply about calling a technician or buying a new dishwasher. We have done about all we can do. He's putting it back together.
The most common thing to have happened is a wire is broken right at the bottom of the door at the hinge point from opening and closing the door. That can be repaired by spliciing the wires, that is a cheap repair.If the wire is not broken there the only other thing that can be wrong is the control board. A repair person is going to charge more for this part, usually 20% more. It is $103 plus shipping at the site I have linked below thats about $123 plus the labor and trip charge. Here where I work we charge $65 for the repair and the trip total, that would be just under $200 for the repair if the board were the problem. $85 if we were to come and repair the wiring. One of those are bad, there is no doubt about it.
I should also mention every appliance repair shop charges different labor rates so be sure to ask, it varies widely here where I work from place to place.If you found my answer satisfactory please login if you are not already logged in and please leave an ok or better rating.
