This dishwasher is less than 2 years old.

All of a sudden all of the lights are not on.

I checked the breaker and it wasn't tripped. I did reset it though. I tried holding the heat button to unlock the led controls but nothing happened and all lights are still off. I also unplugged it and plugged it back in. I tried a different outlet too.

Any thoughts on how I can fix this?

--->Check your main control board STATUS LED, Tell us how many times its flashing in a row, or if its STEADY ON or STEADY OFF.

Then turn the power back on to the dishwasher and tell us how many times its flashing in a row, Make sure all connections to the control board are still in place when viewing that STATUS LED.


Let us know what you find.

Something interesting happened. I unplugged it to start get to the control board. I then wiggled the inside connection piece back and forth where the door tab connects to. I then waited 15 minutes and plugged it back in and it works now. Not sure what happened or if it is a stable fix.

Loose connection?
