My dishwasher (model # DW1800Y0) will not even attempt to turn on....you close the door, turn the switch and nothing happenes.  The breaker is not thrown.  I opened it up and looked at the wiring and nothing was burned or looked wrong.  I am wondering what the best thing to do.  I am thinking of just calling a repair person to the house, but hate to spend that money.  Maybe there is something wrong with the door connector and it id not recognizing that the door is closed?  Maybe the knob to switch the diswasher on is bad?  Does anyone have some advise of any way for me to diagnose what is wrong?

Joshua,  have you got a meter?  First open the door and see if your float is stuck,  should be on the left hand side inside the tub...move it up and down a few times and try the dishwasher.  If it doesn't work after that,  pull the bottom panel and remove the junction cover.  See if you have 120 getting to the dishwasher..post a reply to see where your at...Ron

The float was not stuck, but I don't have a meter.  I am planning on going my Home Depot on my way home from work.  It think the "junction box" is behind the upper panel (on the opposite side of where the round tile is for turning on the dishwasher).  When I was looking in there the other day, I could see a plug where it looked like a main line was plugging into that.  I would assume this plug is where I would need to make sure it is sending the 120 into the diswasher.  I haven't got a chance to look at the meter, but I guess it would need something really skinny (like a needle type) to stick down into the plug and test the voltage?
