Customer Question
Dishwasher won't start, auto...

Dishwasher won't start, auto light is on and 2:09 light is blinking. Tried turning it off but nothing happens. When we turn it back on stays the same .

Contractor's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of your dishwasher? And have you run a diagnostic test cycle?

Bosch She53tf5uc102. How do you run a diagnostic test cycle

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes if possible

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Why can't we change anything when we turn it off and back on?

Try to press and hold the start button for 5 seconds to reset the board. If that doesn't work, flip the breaker off to the dishwasher for 5 minutes. If it still won't work properly, you need to order and replace the main control board under your dishwasher along the right side wall. The dishwasher will need to be pulled out and uninstalled to access the board, but the board is all plug and play if you're handy. Below is a link tot he board you'd need to order for your model.
