Why My Dishwasher Has No Power

Why My Dishwasher Has No Power

Is your dishwasher not turning on? Here’s what the solution might be.

It can be incredibly frustrating whenever an appliance fails in your home, whether the washing machine or the oven. One of the most troublesome appliances can be the dishwasher. You’re not the only one if you start your dishwasher and walk away, only to find that something went wrong. One common issue is a dishwasher that does not have power. If you are wondering why your dishwasher has no power, here is what you need to know.


Door Latch Problems

The door latch serves important purposes on every dishwasher, as it helps to make sure that the door is completely shut before the washing begins and also helps prevent your home from being flooded in the event that you did not latch things correctly. If your dishwasher has no power, you should start by checking the latch. If there is an issue with the latch or it is broken, repairs will need to be made in order for your dishwasher to work normally again.

An Issue With the Power Supply

Another one of the most common reasons why a dishwasher has no power is an issue with the power supply itself. In the aftermath of a power outage, you might find that some circuits in your home are turned back on, and others need to be manually reset at the breaker box. Additionally, if you trip a circuit breaker or have a faulty electrical outlet, it can lead to issues with your dishwasher’s power supply. 

Control Panel Problems

If the control panel for your dishwasher is getting power, there may be communication issues between the control panel and the rest of the device that are stopping it from working correctly. If your dishwasher has no power to start the cycle but the control panel is working, talking with a technician can be a good way to troubleshoot the issue so that you can use your dishwasher normally again. In some cases, if your dishwasher has no power because of control panel problems, it may be wise to replace it outright.
