Q: My dishwasher wont start
A: If it is an electronically controlled dishwasher the circuit board could be bad or it is frozen. The board can get frozen (we call it "confused") if someone accidentally has pushed two buttons at the same time or just pushed a bunch of the at once (usually kids). The best way to fix this is by turning the circuit breaker in the electrical panel off, leave if off for a least 15 minutes, then turn the breaker back on. Run it on a light cycle and test it to see if it works. If that didn't work, either try to leave the breaker off for a longer period of time. If THAT doesn't work you'll probably need to replace some parts such as the board or a latch switch. Non-electronic control dishwashers with a manual knob turn style timer have what are called "interlock switches" that control the power to the unit when the door is closed.
