I have a may tag dishwasher, it has been working find. I filled it up with dishes etc...
It has electric at the plug, it just i close the door and when I press start nothing now. The door is closed, leave the same setting. The electric on the front panel on the door, has no power. Now I connected this dishwasher, was simple just had to attach the plug and run it to the bottom of it. I am about to pull it out, but I was told that it has a box where I attached the wire for it to be plugged. Its only 4yrs old. What do you think it is?

Ok just tell me what you need. I will wait for you.

Okay well the first thing you need to do is remove the access panel under the door number 9 on this diagram. behind that you will see the junction box. number 20. remove that cover and make sure your getting power at that point. shut the breaker off to the D/W and be careful and remove the wire nuts spread them apart (so they don't touch anything ) and test for 120 volt between the white and black wires.

Ok that's where I connected the plug wire ends. I tested the outlet good and tested it at the ends. Once I connect the plug wires to dishwasher. From there on no juice going into dishwasher. Could it be that this part act like a fuse a regulator?

these machines have a safety thermostat that is most likely blown, High Limit ThermostatNNN-NN-NNNN      Main Product View its in the door but its not shown on a diagram so you will need to open the door assembly and locate it. there are screws to remove on the inside of the door. open the door and locate that fuse. unplug the machine first.let me know when you find it. do you have a volt meter ?

Did a piece of plastic get stuck somewhere and you pulled it out ? I thought there was no power to this. let me see If I can get you some help in sending me a picture.

on the door it self there is a piece of plastic stuck into the door that has two fuses plus a little plastic piece that when the heater turns on and pushed it down and it pushes another lover to activate the water and the heat pump so all I did is pressed that little piece in I heard a click and plugged in and turned it on and its running a full cycle right now I have no idea why you didn't receive the pictures but with your help we found the problem. Now I know more about my dishwasher better than before.

Okay that's great ! I'm glad you found the issue. Have a great day and thanks. Bryan
