Where is the restart button on Amana dishwasher?

Amana dishwashers typically do not have a specific "restart" button in the traditional sense. However, you can perform a reset or restart of the dishwasher by using a combination of control panel actions. Here's how you can do it: 1. Cancel Cycle: If a cycle is running and you want to restart the dishwasher with a different cycle or after making adjustments, press the "Cancel" button on the control panel. This will stop the current cycle and allow you to select a new one. 2. Power Reset: If you want to perform a more comprehensive restart, you can do a power reset. Follow these steps: a. Open the dishwasher door and make sure it's empty. b. Locate the dishwasher's circuit breaker in your home's electrical panel. c. Turn off the circuit breaker that supplies power to the dishwasher. Wait for about 5-10 minutes. d. Turn the circuit breaker back on to restore power to the dishwasher. 3. Control Panel Reset: Some Amana dishwashers might allow you to perform a control panel reset. Here's a general process (keep in mind that the steps might vary depending on the model): a. Locate the "Hi Temp" and "Start/Resume" buttons on the control panel. b. Press and hold the "Hi Temp" and "Start/Resume" buttons simultaneously for about 3-5 seconds. c. Release the buttons when the control panel lights or indicators blink or change. d. Close the dishwasher door and select a new cycle to start. 4. Consult the User Manual: For specific instructions related to your Amana dishwasher model, refer to the user manual that came with the appliance. The manual should provide details about restarting, resetting, and troubleshooting common issues. 5. Professional Assistance: If you're still experiencing problems or are unsure about performing a restart, consider reaching out to Amana's customer support or contacting a professional appliance technician for guidance. Please note that the layout and functions of control panels can vary depending on the specific model and generation of the dishwasher. Always refer to the most recent version of the user manual for accurate information tailored to your dishwasher's model.
