Issue

  • Dishwasher does not / will not start but the power is on

Applies to

  • integrated dishwasher
  • freestanding dishwasher

Resolution

There are a few things that can be checked on the appliance before looking at a repair for the appliance

Make sure a program has been selected before closing the door.

Use the program selector either on the front of the appliance or the top of the door to select the desired programme and any additional extras you may want (such as extra power or glass care)

The programme should start when the door is closed.

The appliance will only star the programme when the door is detected to be fully closed. You may need to open and close the door again. You should hear an audible click which indicates the door is closed.

A previous setting may still be set on the appliance, such as delay start, or the previous programme may still be active.

To remove a previous setting, it depends on the controls that you have on your appliance. You will need to reset the appliance. Please take a look at the images below of our dishwashers to see how to reset an appliance.
