Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDS25 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

The "Rinse Only Button" will not function even after going through the "Cancel" cycle.

I have tried many times to push the "Cancel" button on the dishwasher. It goes through it's cycle and stops. At this point I try pushing the "Rinse Only" button and then push the "Start" button, and the dishwasher starts up on the last wash cycle it was previously on. How can I clear this up and us the "Rinse Only" cycle?

Br, sounds like you have a stuck keypad. This would be the only reason it is switching to a different cycle. back.

    Talking about a kenmore 665.16389300 dishwasher. the "normal wash" button is blinking, but none of the other buttons seem to work and the cleaning cycle will not start when i press the...

    Open the door. Within 3 seconds press the following sequence --Try pressing normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry three times within 6 seconds and then press cancel to reset the dishwasher. If that doesn't help then try pressing Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry or Saini Rinse, Air Dry, Saini Rinse, Air Dry, Saini Rinse, Air Dry 3 times in 6 seconds and then the Cancel Button. Close the door and press Cancel.
    Blinking lights would stop and should be able to use your dishwasher normally. If the light is still blinking try and reset the power to the dishwasher and try again. If still the light is blinking then check for the connections on the keypad, it may be due to moisture or shorted connections on keypad. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

    I've tried to use this new machine 3 times. Each time it was never turned off until I pushed the cancel/drain button. Once I let it run for 2 hours before turning it off. This evening I tried the rinse...

    If this is a new machine and it's under warranty, Have a technician come out and repair it as soon as possible. then fully test it's operation after he is done fixing it . It sounds to me as though it needs a new control board. That is an expensive repair.
    If it is then not working, You should demand (politely) that it is in perfect condition or that it is replaced. Also make sure that you do not have to pay for the removal or installation of the replacement. You will need your bill of sale.
    Hope this is helpful,
    Happy New Year,

    Dish washer does not turn on CL light stays on when reset count down 6 appears then goes to CL

    Hello and welcome to Fixya,

    I have a ton of service info on Bosch so it`s best I post you an exert from the service pdf`s I have on my PC which will explain the meaning of "CL" and then go from there. This is not a common indication of a control problem, but it could be a problem with the plastic casing which houses the control, we`ll deal with that later.

    I`ve underlined the section pertaining to the "CL", this is for the SHU68** dishwashers only.


    First depress the On/Off Button until it locks in place.

    Once the On/Off Button is depressed the LED above the previously used cycle will illuminate.

    To change the cycle, simply press the desired Cycle Button twice. The LED above that cycle will then illuminate.

    The Cycle Countdown will display an approximate run time for the cycle chosen.

    This run time will depend on incoming water temperature and the turbidity of the pre-wash water.

    Note: It is normal for the Countdown Display to remain at a time increment for more than one minute, or skip a time increment depending on the calculations of the Control Unit. Also, with continued use the Control Unit will learn the wash and temperature patterns for the most commonly used programs and will then reduce the overall start and running times.

    At the end of the cycle the display will show a CL, indicating that the cycle is complete.

    Press the Scrub Wash and Delicate / Econo Buttons both in at the same time. The unit will then drain and the figure CL will appear in the display.**

    The Delay Start feature allows the unit to be delayed for up to nine hours. To program, start the unit as described above, but after selecting a cycle push the Delay Start button. The display will show a 1h, or one-hour delay. Continue to depress the Delay Start Button until the desired delay time is reached (up to nine hours, 9h).
    The unit will begin automatically once the delay time has elapsed. To reset the delay, press the Delay Start Button until it reaches 0h.

    The Top Rack Only feature can be used in conjunction with any cycle. To active, press the Top Rack Only Button after selecting a
    cycle, the Top Rack Only LED will illuminate and all water will be diverted to the upper wash arm for the complete cycle.

    The Refill Rinse Agent LED is activated via a Reed Switch on the Detergent Dispenser, Section 4, Fig. 8-3. The LED will
    illuminate when the Rinse Agent Dispenser is empty.
    Service note: The Refill Rinse Agent LED will also illuminate when the dishwasher door is opened and then
    closed even if the Dispenser is full, but will only remain lit for a few seconds.

    “F” CODE:
    An “F” in the display window indicates a filling fault.

    Please note: If the door is opened during the cycle, the On/Off Button will be reset to off and must be depressed again to re-active the cycle. The cycle will resume from where it left off.

    Now that you are equipped with this info, what I`d suggest is trying the **cancel option. ( ** see above )

    Once you`ve tried the cancel option, select a Regular Wash and post back what happens and I`ll try to assist you from there.

    Good luck.

    My kenmore dishwasher, model 15822, just stopped working. The quick rinse light is blinking. The only other buttons that work are the pots & pans light which blinks when pushed, and the cancel button...

    These are known to develop sticky switch contact pads. They stick in the contacted position and stifle the panel. Sometimes heat can be applied with a hair dryer to release them and make the unit function again. This is more than likely a temporary fix. New panels are available for about $165 to $200.

    Try this solution first
    Push the Hi-temp and then push the Sani-rinse. Go back and forth multiple times on these two buttons. I found that after a handfull of pushes that a "1" came up on the display. I continued to keep rotating the two buttons and then a "2" came up on the display and the dishwater started it's "drain" phase. I then hit cancel to clear and then I selected the cycle I wanted. The washer started up just as normal at this point.

    I just read this for the same problem: push sanitize, then heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, cancel, then open and close the door. It worked. The dishwasher is running correctly even as I type this.
