Dishwasher won't start

2013 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  bucksone
I have a Maytag Jetclean dishwasher that is nine years old. It has worked fine, but today it won't turn on. None of the lights on the front panel activate. I checked my circuit breakers and none are tripped. The Control Lock feature doesn't appear to be activated because the Lock light isn't lit. The door seems to be completely closed.

I'm not sure what's going on here. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Before trying anything major, since It sounds like you haven't had problems in the past. Try taking everything out of the dishwasher and see if it works. Back when I was doing home maintenance I would get a call a couple times a year about a dishwasher that "didn't work" and would find that there was something getting in the way of the door that was not obvious at first.

May not be the problem. But it's worth a try. Nine years is a pretty good run for a dishwasher.

Good Luck
