A dishwasher may not start due to the following reasons:


  • On some models, it is normal for most cycles to pause for 5 minutes near the start of the cycle to let the dishes soak.
  • It is also normal for certain cycles to repeatedly pause for 15 to 65 seconds during the main wash.
    Door may not be properly latched. Shut the door completely until you hear a click.
  • Dishwasher may not be turned on. Press the main power switch to turn it on.
  • The circuit breaker may not be on. Reset the circuit breaker if necessary.
  • Water supply may not be on. The dishwasher water supply is typically located under the sink.
