Question Dishwasher stopped working

My dishwasher stopped working yesterday, so today, I shut the breaker off, and pulled it out, and disconnected the power supply, turned the breaker back on, and tested to see if there was any power coming from breaker, but there wasn't any. I checked as best as I could to find any shorts in the line, but I couldn't find any. Is it possible that the breaker went bad?

Did you check any other outlets in the same area? You may have a GFI that tripped. Thats probably the first question the "real" electricians are going to ask. Good luck.

Not usually, but sometimes there is a wall switch which shuts off power to the dishwasher. To see if your breaker went bad, you can use your voltmeter on the breaker itself.
