I take it you mean it makes not a sound. If you tried the breaker, than you need to try for power closer to the motor. Take the kick panel off the front bottom. Where you see the motor you should see the plastic wire connectors. have your breaker off, or your dishwasher unplugged, first. Take the clips off. You may have to pull hard on the clips.If you have a voltage meter, stick the black probe in the clip that has a white wire and the red meter probe in the red one (which may be blue). If you have two motors, they may both have different colors so you can tell me. I didn't look up your style. Turn the breaker back on and look for 120 volts. Another way is to take any cord you have that is like a lamp cord, or an extension cord, and cut it. You want to keep the end that plugs into a wall, but the other end you split down the middle to make two sides....forked. On a lamp cord, the neutral (which would be white) side has a fine ridge on the rubber. Strip off about a half inch of coating and twist the wires so you have two probes now in your hands. Keep them separated at all times! Put the neutral one on one of the motor's flat metal prongs that used to have a clip on it. Put the other wire on the other.....with the breaker off!!!!There may be little holes in the metal tabs on the motor to stick the wire ends into. Don't let them touch each other, of course. You can even put a little electrical tape on them. Turn on the power to see if your motor turns. Your home-made cord has to be in an outlet that you know works, tho. If the motor starts, your motor is fine. Turn off the power. You don't have to put the dishwasher in any cycle for that test, but you do have to have it in a cycle for the first test with a voltage meter. If it doesn't start, you can, with the power off, put a screwdriver in the motor fins and make sure the motor turns. Sometimes they just temp. lock up (stick) but that is usually if it has not been run for awhile. Try it anyway, though. Actually, you should try that before the above tests...LOL. Sorry. Did you try a lamp in the outlet the dishwasher is plugged into? Let me know how it goes.
