Front of door

Possible Solutions

Are the selected cycles/options lights flashing?

Flashing cycle/options lights indicate that your cycle or start-up was interrupted. Possible causes of this are that the door was opened during the cycle or that power has been interrupted.

To resume operation, check that the door is completely closed and press START/RESUME.

Has a delay wash option been selected?

A delay wash option runs the dishwasher at a later time or during off-peak electrical hours. If the delay wash has been selected, the dishwasher will not run until the delay time is reached.

To Turn Off the Delay Wash Feature:

Press CANCEL/DRAIN to cancel the delay. Press START/RESUME to start the cycle. 

Is the door completely closed and latched?

Make sure that the door is completely closed and latched. A lower dish rack that is installed backward can also cause the door to not latch properly.
