What should I do if my dishwasher is not working after a power surge?


Answer by  thelostone (1457)

First you should check your circuit breakers. If none of them are off you them want to heck your dishwasher for fuses on it. Otherwise call a professional.

After a power surge the first thing you would do would be to check the circuit breakers to make sure they are all on. If everything is on and looks good you would probably at this point call a professional unless you feel you know enough about dishwashers to troubleshoot further.

You should try to check the circuit breakers first. Sometimes in a power surge the breakers trip. If that doesnt work than maybe you need to either call a plumber to check for leaks or an electrician to check for other problems that may be going on.

The first thing I would do is check to see if the circuit breaker tripped. If it did, then it's a simple matter of resetting the breaker. If that isn't the case, then you're best off buckling down and calling a repairman.

Firstly, you should see if your fuse is broken or not, you can check with a multimeter. If you can see that the fuse has broken, replace it and see if your dishwasher works then. If this doesn't work, call your repairman as it may have damaged internal components.

Assuming that the water is running...take them out of the dishwasher and go at it the old fashioned way and wash them by hand in the sink.

If your dishwasher is not working after the surge, this indicates that there may be a manufacturer's defect on the dishwasher. So therefore, it is advisable for you to call customer service.

Most dishwashers are connected to both the electricity as well as water, In the case that it won't work after a power surge you could simply reset your breaker box, or call a repair service.

You should find the reciept for the dishwasher so you call the electric company to tell them the power surge ruined your dishwasher you can tell them the replacement cost.

Often after a power surge has occurred things need to be reset and many plug-ins have a red reset button that is in between the two plugs and simply pushing this can fix the problem sometimes or try to unplug the dishwasher and replug it.

first check to see if the breaker that the dishwasher is hooked up to has been tripped ifthat has happened just flip the breaker back over and it should fix the problem. If the breaker is ok then you may need a new dishwasher
