So the other day I've come home and the dishwasher won't start. My first though was power, but then I looked at the control panel and the lights are still lit.

However, pressing start just doesn't make it happen. Essentially, moving the dial around to choose the wash level the lights will be on etc. close the door, press start, nothing happens.

I checked the pump in the base ( have not electrically tested, but I can move the pump blades freely, so I know there is no obstruction there). And there is no standing water.

It's just got me confused, I think: "Maybe the circuitry has shorted" but then the lights are all still functioning as normal. "Maybe the pump is gone" But then, it doesn't even attempt to do anything, the power switch does nothing, not even a hint of noise.

A concern I have is that we had some guests do some cleaning while we were out (this is when it stopped functioning) and the manual states fairly clearly not to clean with spray anywhere near the door latch, I can only assume there are some sensitive components there, but then again, if it had shorted this circuit, would the lights be functioning as normal?


I requested the service manual on these forums hoping to find some kind of internal fuse that I could check, however there doesn't seem to be one. I've thought of filling it with water to see if it drains, but my concern is the pump wont start and i'll have a full dish washer.



Anyone experienced anything similar before? And please take my assumptions above ^ as coming from a total amateur with appliances. I wouldn't be asking here if I wasn't ;)

Edit: I saw on some other forums, that some of the ASKOs have 'debugging' methods that can be input via special button combinations, these methods allow you to test individual components to pin point the issue. If this existed with the d1716, would it be in the service manual or another manual?

I'm not a master on Askos, but maybe the Door Switch OR the Start Switch ?
Do the Lights still illuminate with the Door open ?

Lights behave normally, that is, everything closed, not on, lights off. press power button, lights on. ( no flashing etc), open door, lights off (normal). Close door, lights back on. Power button pressed again to turn off, lights off.
