Dishwasher does not switch on, no light on the panel

  • Dishwasher does not switch on, no light on the panel

Applies to:

  • Integrated dishwasher
  • Freestanding dishwasher


Before starting the appliance always check:

  • The filters are clean and correctly installed. 
  • The cap of the salt container is tight. 
  • The spray arms are not clogged. 
  • There is enough salt and rinse aid (unless you use multi-tablets).
  • The arrangement of the items in the baskets is correct. 
  • The programme is suitable to the type of load and the degree of soil. 
  • The correct quantity of detergent is used.

If dishwasher is flashing and the programme is still not starting:

  • Make sure that the mains plug is connected to the mains socket.
  • Make sure that there is no damaged fuse in the fuse box. 
  • Make sure that the appliance door is closed. 
  • If the delay start is set, cancel the setting or wait for the end of the countdown. 
  • The appliance recharges the resin inside the water softener. The duration of the procedure is approximately 5 minutes. The water softener removes minerals from the water supply, which would have a negative effect on the washing results and on the appliance.
