Your Dishwasher Won’t Start
If you load up your dishwasher, get the detergent in it, and press the start cycle – only for nothing to happen – it could be a smaller issue than you would guess. At American Appliance Repair we have found that the most common reasons for dishwashers not starting is usually something simple like a door switch that needs to be replaced, a broken door latch, or a blown thermal fuse.
The best way to prevent any of these
issues from occurring is to be sure that you are gentle when opening
and closing your dishwasher.

line. It can also be caused by the failure of the drain pump or valve
malfunction. To reduce the chance that your drain filter will get
clogged and cause standing water, make sure you are clearing debris

issues, make sure you are not adding too much detergent, as this can
cause the dispenser to become damaged over time.

not cleaning as well as it once did, stop washing everything a second
