Did you check the fuse in the plug (or fused spur) for the dishwasher?

Do you have an air gap between the disposal and the dishwasher? If not required raise the hose and as high as you can. It must be above the water level in the sink. Try attaching it to the underside of the counter. At some point the hose should be above 32 inches. It the problem is with the dishwasher itself. Don't fix, replace. They are not really designed to last over 10 years. The new ones , especially in the last year or two are a BIG improvement over any older one. So quiet you can't tell they are even running, they clean so much better and are much more energy efficient. Stainless steel interiors are just a fad. The plastic tubs are actually less likely to leak and are by there nature more quiet.

I had the same problem with my dishwasher. I have model number kudso2frss4. My husband and Father-in-law checked all the electrical and they were all fine. They found that the high-limit tub thermostat was bad. They bypassed it with a wire until the part comes in. It is working great now. Hope it helps good luck

Water drains fine the unit runs but does not get rid of food


Be aware that your selected object you have a problem with is a hot water faucet made by insinkerator, not a disposer. I'm not sure what your problem is, but let's try to address the most common problems.
The disposer must be turned on and run to get rid of food. Does the motor come on when you turn it on? If it doesn't, does the disposer make a humming sound when you turn it on like it's jammed? If it makes no humming sound when you turn it on, first press the reset button on the bottom firmly. If the disposer then makes a humming sound, it's jammed. Read below. If the disposer still doesn't act like it has power when you turn it on, check the circuit breaker or fuse and try the reset button again. If none of this so far works and you still don't even hear it making the motor-stalled-buzzing-sound (open the cabinet door) then you should still check the disposer to see if it's jammed.
First, make sure you TURN OFF THE POWER to the disposer with the circuit breaker or fuse box. Now you need to check if the shaft rotates freely. On most disposers, there's a hole in the center of the bottom of the unit. You can insert a special disposer wrench or allen wrench into this hole and turn the shaft of the motor. It should rotate freely. You'll probably find the disposer wrench taped under the sink, or you can pick one up at a hardware store. If the disposer doesn't have this hole on the bottom, you need to go from the top. Remove the splash guard (black flappy thing) if it is removable on your model. Look inside with a flashlight for anything foreign that may be causing a jam like bottle caps. Place a broom handle against one of the lugs mounted on the wheel, and see if the wheel turns freely. If it doesn't, try to work it back and forth until it does. Then use tongs to remove the foreign object. After you clear a jam, it may be necessary to push the reset button again. If the motor became overheated it may take it as much as like 20 minutes for the motor to cool enough to allow you to reset.
Be aware that food usually needs to be pushed into the disposer manually, with a full flow of cold water.
