Answer to "Dishwasher will not clean"If you can't get your dishwasher to start the cycle it might be due to something simple like a burned fuse. There are times when there is a problem with the door switch that prevents the unit from starting the cycle. Also a broken door latch would cause the same thing to happen.

You can test the thermal fuse with a multimeter and replace as required. Door Switch: If the door switch does not engage the dishwasher will not run. The dishwasher will think the door is still open. Test the door switch with a multimeter for continuity.

If it can't the oven will not heat properly. Inspect the elements for cracks and holes. They can be tested with a multimeter for continuity. Spark Electrode: The spark electrode ignites gas for baking and broiling purposes. It sits next to the burner. You...

Drain Pump: The drain pump needs to be checked for debris. If its clean and noisy it needs to be replaced. Circulation Pump: Bearings inside the circulation pump will wear out over time and can cause a loud groaning sound while the dishwasher operates.
