Dishwasher not starting
« on: April 09, 2013, 09:10:49 PM »

I have a Frigidaire Gallery dishwasher, model #PLD8998ACI. The lights on the control panel come on when initiating the wash cycle, but nothing happens when the start button is pushed. My first thought is the control panel is bad, or maybe just the buttons on the control panel are going bad. Does this sound reasonable or are there other options to look at for the cause of the problem? Also, if anyone had a good idea of what the problem may be, I would be grateful for an estimate of the cost of repair in order to determine if replacement might be a better option.

Does the unit drain when you push the cancel button after pressing start?

Nothing at all happens when pressing the start button. Pressing again to cancel doesn't seem to matter either. The light on the 'normal wash' cycle button just goes off after about 10 seconds. As for the draining - I can't hear anything happening, but I would assume there is nothing there to drain.
