Customer Question
I have zero power...

I have zero power to my dishwasher. I checked the wires with an AC voltage detector. No voltage. I also checked the breaker...nothing. My dishwasher is hard wired. Any ideas?

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

I'm getting the model. It's a Kenmore and I'm not sure what you mean by test cycle?

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

If I can.

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

Kenmore ultra wash.
