<<<We have a *LDS5811WW* dishwasher that suddenly will not power on.>>>


Remove the lower kickplate at the front/bottom of the dishwasher.

On the right side---there's a small TERMINAL BOX---remove the screw/box and verify 120 volts at the *black* and *white* wires. If either of these wires appear burnt/overheated (loose connections) disconnect power at the home fusebox/circuit breaker---and repair as needed.

Remove the front cover of the dishwasher (metal panel & plastic control panel).

Remove the large *white* plug from the MAIN BOARD---using the test meter---verify 120 volts at the *white* plug (not the MAIN BOARD itself).

If no voltage is detected at the *white* plug---replace both the NOISE SUPPRESSION FILTER and the MAIN BOARD.

NOTE: The NOISE FILTER is located at the bottom/right side of the dishwasher (small circuit board).

If there is voltage at the *white* plug---replace the MAIN BOARD only.

There were 2 wires in the tar thar had totally broken off and a third was starting to split.  Additionally the white power line had split in half at the bottom of the door and had been arcing quite a lot it appears.

My wife's very happy with me at the moment.

You have to isolate the wiring from touching the liner insulation to prevent it form happening again. I perfer to use rubbertex refrigeration pipe insulation but you can use thick cardboard as well. Wrap the harness in either and make sure to install an insulator behind the harness going to the door latch, dispenser and main pcb ( main control board ).
