Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you with your dishwasher. Please give me a moment to review your question.

Expert:  Engineer-Tech replied 7 months ago.

What happens when you press the start button?

Expert:  Engineer-Tech replied 7 months ago.

Does the start button respond?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Start button nothing
Expert:  Engineer-Tech replied 7 months ago.

Ok. There are a few things you can check.

Expert:  Engineer-Tech replied 7 months ago.

This usually happens when the door switches are either bad or not fully pressed down.

Expert:  Engineer-Tech replied 7 months ago.

First, check the "keeper", which is the part that sticks out at the top of the dishwasher that latches the door. Sometimes they loose their ability to press down.

Expert:  Engineer-Tech replied 7 months ago.

Press that keeper down to bend it a little bit, but not too much.

Expert:  Engineer-Tech replied 7 months ago.

Then try closing the door and trying the dishwasher again.
