Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Cycle will not run completely

Dishwasher will not go through a full cycle. Sometimes will start but then will stop after about 1 min. Control panel was replaced twice. Also melted plastic glasses in top rack and silicone and plastic utensils in bottom. GE tech support contacted multiple times by technician. They still cannot figure out what is going on.

It is a problem with the water heating cycle, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature.
A thermic sensor will allow the machine to restart the cycle after the water reaches the required temperature.
In your machine the thermostat is defective and the machine waits too long, that is also the reason for the too high temperature melting plastic.

What's causing my dishwasher to stop in the cleaning cycle, and how do i fix?


It's probably the switch that is attached to the latch. Could also be the latch itself or the strike.

Dishwasher was not draining. I cleaned out everything and now it wont start


I have the same problem with another Kitchenaid model. I've had better results at keeping the water drained by running two back to back water saver cycles than running a full pots and pans cycle.

KITCHENAID DW KUDS30FXSS - 18 months old, will not complete cycles. Runs for 15 mins and stops & lights go out. Cleaning tablet often left in dispensor.


See my problem and solution. Sounds like you, too, are having a problem with the main control board (computer chip that controls the dishwasher), which is apparently a common problem with this model dishwasher. The part can be found here, for $211 (tax + shipping), and they have a 30-day return policy in the event that it does not fix the problem. It's an easy DIY fix. Hopefully this helps!

Kitchenaid KUDS02FRSS0 dishwasher. Stops mid-cycle, sometimes wash, sometimes rinse, sometimes dry. Must restart 4-5-6 times to get it to finish. When finally done dishes are clean, hot & dry....


Hi Dennis.

If the dishwasher is hanging on in the middle of the cycle it is usually the heating system. If the temperature of the water is going up after filling, then the element may be working. The element is tested using a multi meter set on Ohms to read impedance across the heater element contacts. If impedance is infinity (open-off limit), then the element is gone. If the element is OK, then the bi-metal thermostat or the fuse must be replaced. The heating assembly is located at the base of the appliance, behind the kick panel.

Behind the kick panel you should also find the tech sheet illustrating how to run the diagnostic cycle for this model. Run a diagnostic cycle to confirm that the problem is with the heating system. Drain, water sensor and inlet problems sometimes may also result in cycle not finishing.

You can find parts and diagrams for your dishwasher in this page.

Regards.
