Hello my name is***** will be helping you today. First thing to do is make sure its plugged in, check the outlet where its plugged into. If you have a volt meter check for 110 volts at the receptacle, if you dont have a meter get a lamp or another 110 volt plug and make sure it works when plugged in. If thats fine, make sure the dishwasher is unplugged and what I want you to do is take off the bottom kick plate (phillips screws I believe). ONce that is off, to the right you will see a metal box, remove the screw holding that box in and you will see wires connected with a wire nut connector. Remove the nut connector and make sure the wires are firmly connected and twist the nut connectors back on. Power the unit up and see if that fixed it. Please note if that wire nut connector is burnt (its made of plastic) you will see a bump or discolored area, more than likely that will need to be reattached is more than likely the culprit. If none of that fixed the issue, respond back in here and we will go over what to do next.
