Dishwasher/stove no power

Earlier this morning I started my dishwasher like normal. It filled up and went to cycle on and cut off. There was no power to it at all. I ended up going through all of the switches in the electrical panel and nothing was wrong. No breakers were off, nothing....

After checking the electrical sockets on the wall in the kitchen, everything works fine. The only two things that do not work is the dishwasher and stove. They both have no power.

What would cause that and how would I go about fixing it?

Did you reset the breaker or just look at them? Are the breakers labeled at to the circuit they protect? Can we assume the stove is gas and only needs 120 volts for the panel etc.?

This is a little odd conferation however I am thinking you may have a hidden GFCI or loose connection at one of the receptale.

So slide the stove out and see what kind of receptale you have there behind otherwise you will have to go in the basement { if you have it }or crawlspace and look at the junction box if there and look for loose connection.

The answer will be based on NEC ( National Electrical code ) or CEC ( Cananda Electrical code ) or ECF ( Electrique Code France )

First, is the stove electric or gas. If electric, possible you lost one leg. If gas, could be on the same circuit as the dishwasher, which it shouldn't, but weirder things have happened when you let Bubba wire a home.
