I need a point A to a Point B on the wire you removed.

EDIT: The ground wire is not going to make it not run, BUT!! it does need to be hooked up.

I'd much rather see you call someone in. You could lose your house, and LIVES if this is not done right.
We have a call into a pro right how

See if there's an inline fuse in the washer.

Good Bill, that's what I wanted to hear. It's a simple fix, but if it is not done correctly.

If there is, and they now blew that fuse, all the more reason to call someone in. Gotta remember, many years ago they didn't have codes like we have now. A black or red wire, may not actually be the hot. Where in most cases today it will be.

Thanks for your help everyone. Don't know if the dishwasher/appliance man we use will be able to fix it. Might have to wait for the general contractor we have renting the big mobile home to get it fixed. His first big project is rewiring our laundry room.

This job was probably beyond Jose's abilities. We really just wanted him to clean under the dishwasher but he thought he could fix the problem when he saw the wires that were knawed through.

Remember Dawn dish soap gets rid of the grease and softens your hands!

Plus, a little manual labor might be good for our sleeping beauty.

The dishwasher is FIXED and cleaning better than ever. The repairman checked Jose's work and found that he did everything right but did not tighten the wires enough because he wasn't using the proper tools. Checked with a voltage meter (?) and there is no longer a current running to the sink.

Put in a mixture of white vinegar and baking soda and ran it through its cycle. Last night we actually put dirty dishes in (we pre washed before) and they came out sparkling clean.

Thanks again for everyone's help

Glad to hear all is well with the DW. This is why it can't be diagnosed from afar.

Ever tried to make poached Salmon in your DW?

Oh yes you can!!!!!

Get a cheap VOM, turn off the mains to the house and check each piece of equipment for hot to ground leaks. Use the ohmmeter setting on the VOM, connect the black wire to a good ground and touch the red wire to each hot wire in turn. When the meter dial moves you have found your short. 99 times out of 100 it is a loose ground wire (green or bare). If the ground wire is good perform the same tests on each switch in the circuit.

I supposed you could put your shorts in the dishwasher, but eating off the plates afterward doesn't sound too appealing....especially if the shorts had a load in them...
