Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDS25 Built-in Dishwasher
I have a KitchenAid dishwasher model number KUDIO1ILWH6. It retails for @ $600.00 and Lowes has a unit that is very similar. I believe the dishwasher I have is from 2005 or 2006? I don't know a lot about it because I bought it used and was told that it worked. I got it all hooked up and it ran all through the cycles without using any water? I fooled with the button sequence some but nothing. I decided to try the water solinoid valve, so I bought and installed one of those. Still nothing. I checked online for information and saw somewhere that some dishwashers need some water in the motor housing in order to work. It was completley empty when I installed it so I put water in it, ran it some, pushed cancell to drain the water and then started over again and it worked! Well.......the next I would say two times. Now it hasn't worked again since then. I also tried replacing the float switch, but that didn't work either. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Someone took the repair manual from the inside of the lower panel so I'm really begining to wonder if there was a problem before.
Can you make a test cord out of a short extension cord . cut the cord on the female end and crimp on two alligator clips . now with the dishwasher disconnected from the power grid put the alligator clips on the water valve .check that the alligator clips are not touching nothing but the valve terminals. Now plug up the male end into a wall outlet ,you should have water if not you will know what to test.
