Dishwasher does not start

Loaded Samsung dishwasher with the door open

When a cycle is selected, the dishwasher will first attempt to drain excess water left over from previous cycles. This will cause the dishwasher to sound like it is working, although no water is actually filling the unit yet. This is normal. After the unit runs a drain cycle (approximately 35 seconds), it will then proceed with the selected wash cycle. If this is not what's happening, your dishwasher may have Child Lock or Delay Start enabled.
