Kitchen Aid diswasher controls don't work

I have the Kudi02frss diswasher it is about 5 years old. The button for "Baked on Cookware" has stopped working. The other cycles work fine. The button itself is in excellent condition. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks.

Re: Kitchen Aid diswasher controls don't work

I had a similar problem with a KUDS01... model. The Baked on cookware and the high temp switches did not operate. The normal light would come on but the machine would not run. I opened the front to expose the timer/controls. There was quite a bit of debris around the circuit board and micro chips. I vacuumed out as much as I could and loosened some with a tooth brush and blew it out with compressed air.

When I powered it back up all buttons worked and the machine worked.

Re: Kitchen Aid diswasher controls don't work

The Button is part of a switch control (all the buttons are individual switches) - take the switch block out of the door and test the button (switch)for circuit continuity, if it is OK, then the timer control may be the problem. My machine had progressive failures through the various cycles until most do not work and it wa the timer that was failing bit by bit.

The clean light on my kitchen aid dish washer kept blinking and would not stop. after reseting it by pushing the buttons 2-3 times it cycles though and stops. then nothing works when i push the...

The electronic control looks for a temp. rise of 2-4 degrees. If no temp.rise control assumes a heater fault and blinks clean light 7 times. Bad heater. Water fill when completed can be no less than 1/2 inch below heater. If so, water valve probably. Circulation motor not working properly. Neutral door switch. Tech sheet is behind bottom cover. Check underneath of unit for leaking or white hard water deposits. Common for seals to leak. If unit is unusually noisy, motor problem. Common after 4-5 years. Will check back to see if you other questions. Good luck.

I have a Kitchen aid dishwasher model # kudpo1ilbs6 the clean light is blinking 7 times then stops for a sec and does it again

I am assuming the problem does not go away when you turn the mains power off and on.

The problem is linked to the temperature variation in the incoming water.

This confuses the diswasher. You have to reset it now. Try this sequence..

Press heated dry, normal heated dry, normal quickly within 5 sec. All lights should light up.

Advance through the cycles by using the start button

Please post a comment to confirm if this helps.

Cancel light and rinse only light keep blinking and wont start


Hopefully you have resolved your issue. I have not heard of the cancel light flashing issue. I have had problems with the clean light flashing seven times over and over and the control panel will not operate. Here is the solution to that. Maybe it will work for your issue as well.

Open dishwasher door,
Push Hi Temp Scrub button,
Push Saver Dry button,
Push Hi Temp Scrub button again,
Push Saver Dry button again,
All lights on control panel will come on.
Close dishwasher door,
Push Baked on Cookware or Normal Button.
Dishwasher should start and complete cycle.

It is good if you have kids that play video games. Their fingers are used to pushing buttons quickly. I guess this resets the control board. The service guy let me have this info as I used to deliver appliances and work on them somewhat.Hope this helps.

Good Luck,

Kitchen aid dishwasher doesn't clean dishes in the top rack

Sounds like you have 1 of 2 problems. Either your pump is clogged or you need a bigger drain loop.
