I have a bosch smv50e00gb dishwasher and it won't turn on no

This answer was rated:

I have a bosch smv50e00gb dishwasher and it won't turn on no lights is there a fuse inside the machine or is it possibly the on off switch or some other issue i have checked the power supply to the machine all ok i think that it might have stopped during the drying cycle because it turned on ok and ran but when i came to empty it it was already off any ideas?

Im afraid there isnt any fuses in there. If its not comming on then its either the on/off switch of the control board im afraid.

Now to be honest its not often the on/off switch fails. But if you have a multi meter you can check this.

Remove the outer door panel and then remove the plastic control panel.
Then you can access the switch and using a multi meter you can test it and see if its switching over when you press it.

But if thats fine then remove the control board which you will see and open the plastic casing and see if theres signs of burning on there. If there is then the control board will need to be replaced to cure.

But to be honest if the power supply is fine then its mostly the control board that causes this kind of fault here.
