If th dishwasher isnt starting and the power supply is fine to the diswhasher then its possibley the door switch. As if this fails then it thinks the door open and wont start the cycle.

What you need to do is unplug the dishwasher and from the front console panel.

Behind there you will see the door switch unit.

Theres 2 microswitchs on there. Check the wiring to them and also check the microswitches themselves and see if faulty.

If so then they will need to be replaced. The part # if you want it is PS2099645

So check that and see what you find as this is the most common cause if the dishwasher isnt starting at all.
