Question about KitchenAid Dishwashers
The water won't hold during the water heating heating or wash cycle - so the element heats up dry, and no water sprays inside. The water comes in and runs right out again.

TURN POWER TO OFF ... REMOVE THE LOWER RACK. THE SPINNING SPRAY BAR USUALLY WILL LIFT SRAIGHT-UP AND OUT ... INSPECT TO SEE IF ANY THING IS IN THERE TO PREVENT IT FROM SPINING FREELY ... THEY SPIN BY WATER PRESSURE SO THE NEXT THING TO CHECK IS THE WATER SUPPLY VALVE (MOST OF THE TIME IT IS RIGHT UNDER YOUR SINK.) AND THE STARAINER is LOCATED WHERE IT CONECTS TO THE DISH WASHER. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A BUCKET AND RAGS HANDY FOR SPILLS... CAREFULLY TURN THE VALVE OFF AND REMOVE THE COMPRESSION FITTING NUT THAT IS ON THE "SIDE CLOSEST TO THE WASHER".... THEN CRACK THE VALVE OPEN AND FILL THE BUCKET UP A FEW TIMES TO ENSURE GOOD WATER FLOW. TURN VALVE "OFF" AND GO TO WERE THE LINE OR HOSE CONNECTS TO THE WASHER. REMOVE THE CONNECTION ... INSIDE YOU SHOULD FIND A STRAINER THAT MAYBE CLOGGED UP. CLEAN-IT AND MAKE SURE TO TIGHTEN ALL THE CONNECTIONS BEFORE STARTING A TRIAL RUN. NOTE: THERE IS A SOLENOID INSIDE THE MACHINE THAT CAN STICK AND GET CLOGGED BUT USUALLY ITS THE VALVE OR THE STRAINER. GOOD LUCK AND STAY DRY ... Joe_Rex

You need to replace the dispenser or possibly the wax motor on the dispenser. I would be more than happy to help you. But need to know the brand an model # so I can make sure that I give you the proper advise.

If the washer is not used regularly the shaft can stick to the seals and prevent the motor from spinning. This happens quite regularly for me if I don't use the washer often. You can just take off the bottom panel - after shutting off power to the dishwasher - and access the motor. you should see some fins and then just try to spin the motor by hand. It usually takes about 90 degrees of rotation before the motor breaks free from the seal. You'll have to fight through the spring-like resistance created by the seal-shaft adhesion. After it breaks free the motor spins freely and you should be all set to go. I haven't found a more permanent fix for this other than running the dishwasher more regularly.

If the dry cycle has a problem, check these:
Heating element Your dishwasher has an electrical heating element that helps to dry the dishes. If the element is burned out, the dishes won't dry properly, and you need to replace the element.
Drying fan Many high-priced dishwashers have a small fan that blows air or heated air into the dishwasher to speed up the drying process. If the fan is defective, you need to replace it.
Thermostat Some dishwashers have a thermostat that monitors the drying temperature. If the thermostat is defective, the heating element may not cycle on or off properly. If that's the problem, you need to replace the thermostat
