How to do a reset or a hard reset on a dishwasher
Resetting your dishwasher is typically the same as performing a hard reset, and can vary by dishwasher brand and type. Some models require you to shut off the power to the dishwasher either by unplugging it or shutting off the circuit breaker. Others are reset by pressing and holding the Start/Reset button on the control panel, then waiting a few moments before attempting to start a wash cycle.
To shut off the power to a dishwasher that’s hardwired, visit your home’s electrical panel and turn off the breaker to your dishwasher for one minute, then switch it back on. For dishwashers plugged into an outlet, simply unplug the dishwasher for one minute, then plug it back in.
