My Kitchen Aid KUDI02IRBS does not start but the lights on the panel go on for a second and then shut off

The dishwasher panel lights will come on but the cycle never starts then the lights go out.

    Our dishwasher will not start the cleaning cycle. I have pressed all of the cycle buttons and the options buttons, and get lights on all of them. The door closes solidly, and strangely, if I press the "cancel" button the dishwasher will start to hum, but will eventually stop, and the light goes out, and no water will have entered the washer, nor will it have cycled. The spinning arm in the bottom rotates freely, there is (obviously) power to the unit. Any ideas?

If your dishwasher doesn't work at all, check these:

Power from the house Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.

Timer or selector switch Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.
Hope that helps!

The wash light and the start/cancel button keep flashing. How do I fix it? I have a Kitchen Aide dishwasher model KUDS02FR


Hi,


The clean light usually will blink due to a failure to heat the water properly. This dishwasher looks for a temperature rise of the water during a heating cycle if it fails to see this rise for multiple cycles it may shut down and blink the clean light.
There are a few things to check before resetting the control.

-The unit not being level so both door switches do not make contact
-
The sump plugged up so water is not pumping across the heater (see sump clean out below)


- Not enough water filling the dishwasher


- The heat element is not working


To reset the control use this key dance within 5 seconds press:HEATED DRY, NORMAL, HEATED DRY, NORMAL
This will cause you to enter the diagnosis cycle once this is finished or you hit cancel the control should be unlocked and ready to use.


Thank you !

Perhaps the child lock is on. Push and hold the heat/dry button for 5 seconds and hopefully the keypad will be unlocked. Hopefully that will work for you.

"Normal" light flashes


You need a new control bd. #W10084141. If the diagnostic mode will not work then the board will have to be replaced.
