Dishwasher not starting

This could be due to electrical issues such as the incoming power supply, a defective wall socket, switch or plug causing the circuit breaker to trip. Other problems could be related to the door not closing securely or issues with the inlet valves and taps.

Dishwasher not filling

Water pressure problems and supply could be the reason for your appliance not filling, as could blockages or kinks in the fill hose.

Dishwasher not heating

Problems with water temperature may be related to the heating circuit or the heating element. Another component that will need to be tested is the thermostat.

Dishwasher not draining

The drain pump could be the culprit here as food remnants trapped by filters and left in the water can obstruct the pump. Blockages or kinks in the drain hose will also cause this to happen.
