Kitchen Aid KUDD03DT top drawer won't stay closed

The lock lever on the unit --- that is shaped like a U --- if you have it ---may be bent a little. You can move it to the correct position - usually down a little --and your door will stay closed

Opened the drawer while it was running now the drawer will not close

Turn off the mains power and back on and see if there is any change.

The drawer lid is stuck in close position when you opened the drawer. Try to select another program on the panel and see if it clears the stuck lid.

Dishwasher beeps but won't run

There could be several reasons for the beeping. The dishwasher checks for sensor to make sure it is in good health before it starts. Most likely the drawer close sensor is detecting fault. This is to ensure the drawer is closed fully to avoid water leaks when dishwasher is on. Sometimes sensor itself has failed and has nothing to do with position of drawer. Open top cover carefully to make sure the drawer is travelling ok on the rails. TAKE MAINS POWER CABLE OUT BEFORE WORKING ON DISHWASHER.

Dishdrawer cannot open

the power board at the base of the dishwasher under bottom drawer appears to have blown up. Take the bottom drawer out carefully to access the power board. Make sure the mains power is turned off.

The reason the bottom drawer is not getting back in is that lid seal actuators are stuck as the motors are in close position. Will reset to normal position once the power is restored. So don't try to push the drawer in as the lid seal will be damaged.

Does not want to slide in

I am a bit surprised it worked through 12 min cycle without drawer fully closed. If you had to force drawer to close position then I would suggest you inspect the lid seal for damage. It can cause leakage in future and shutdown dishwasher.

Both drawers of my 2 drawer dish washer are flashing F1 and water is leaking from the appliance

F1 means that there is water detected under the lower drawer in the base pan. If you pull the drawer out all the way, and use a towel to soak up all the water in the base pan behind the drawer in the base pan, the error will not return when plugged back in. As long as there is water detected in the bottom pan, it will flash the F1 on both drawers.

1 Unplug the dishwasher and turn off the water source to your dishwasher.

2 Ensure that the drawers are closed tightly. If the drawers aren't closed properly, the wash water will spill over the side and hit the sensor. Make sure you don't have anything preventing the lid from closing. Sometimes tall dishes or pans can keep the drawer from having a tight seal.

3 Inspect the rubber on the lid that closes down over the drawer. If the rubber seal is cracked or broken, you will need to replace this piece.

4 Look for junk wedged under or around the drain hole. Remove the basket and then lift off the sprayer arm. Wash away the debris on the sprayer arm by holding it under running water. Remove the filter plate located under the sprayer arm by holding the center ring stationary and turn the outer ring in a counter-clockwise revolution, about 1/8 turn. Lift the filter plate out. Wash the filter plate in hot soapy water and then rinse. Be careful because the filter plate has sharp edges underneath.

5 Reinstall the filter plate. Before locking the filter plate in position, make sure the lines align with each other. Lie the filter plate flat in the drawer's base and then lock it in place. The filter plate should not move after being locked in position. Put the sprayer arm in place and then the basket.

6 Remove the lower drawer. Hold the front of the drawer in one hand and release the clips located on each side of the drawer with your other hand. Pull the drawer forward about 2 inches and lift. Put the drawer on its side. Exercise caution, because of the cables and wires attached.

7 Feel the bottom of the base for any water and soak it up with towels. The F1 sensor is attached to the bottom panel. The F1 sensor is a raised portion about one-third of the way from the left-hand side.

8 Inspect the hose that supplies water to the dishwasher. The connections need to be tight so no water leaks out. Also look over the water supply hose for cracks, holes or worn spots. If you find any, replace the hose with a new one.

9 Examine the drain hoses. If the hoses are kinked, straighten them out. If you find any worn spots or the hoses are leaking, replace them. Remove the hose and see if anything is blocking it. Go outside and use a water hose to run some water through the hose to make sure it is clear. When you reinstall the hose, make sure the connections are tight.

Top drawer obstruction, can not close.

Pull out the the bottom near the front panel at both sides, press the square tabs in and pull the drawer further. When you have the clearance from the edge of the drawer, lift it up out of the rails then put it down to floor. It may not be the hose. I think the top lid seal is sagging down causing the resistance. If this is a case, you need to replaces both actuators to lift up and down the lid to overcome this problem.
Good luck.

Lid is stuck in "down" position on the right only.

k the only thing you can do is try starting then stopping each drawer to see if the lid will go back up if not it will even be a hard one for the serviceman. you can't swap the wires like you've done it will cause large problems like a jammed lid sorry.
