Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDS25 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Washer fills but won't wash or drain yet it cycles KUDM24SEAL1

Hi, I have a KitchenAid model KUDM24SEAL1and just recently it stopped washing, although it will still fills up with water and the front panel indicates that it is going through its normal cycles. It doesn't drain either at the end of the rinse cycle. It stopped functioning properly after a plastic piece on the upper spray arm mount broke when I was loading the dishwasher. I replaced the upper spray arm assembly (mount, sprayarm, manifold, and plastic pipe) but it still doesn't wash once it fills. As the front panel lights up, I deduce that it is getting power okay. Any ideas or thoughts that would point me in the right direction would be very helpful. Many thanks in advance.-Mark

    Hi rpbuice, thanks very much for your helpful advice. The dishwasher front panel lights up, but there is no noise being issued, motor or otherwise. Would the motor be below the lower spray arm you think? And would there be any readily identifiable power lead connecting to it? I have the tools so taking it apart wouldn't be a problem. The broken plastic angle sounds very possible. I will check into that. Thanks again for your help. -Mark

Check to see if power is getting to the motor. If it is then you have a bad motor. Is the motor making a noise? Some of that broken plastic could have got down into the pump and have it locked up.

    Yes, you can access the motor through the front bottom panel. Usually the white is ground and blue or black is the power. The power goes to the door latch - Timer - Motor, in that order.

The unit normally has a 1:20 to 1:30 fill cycle with pauses in between while the wash motor starts and stops without running a diagnostic mode this normally happens when the control outputs power to the wash pump motor but the pump doesn't start

The wash pump and drain pump are different. So it is likely the wash pump is choked and trips or the motor is faulty.

It is likely the flap valve (item 5) or the chopper (item 6) are damaged and could be replaced before you get to the wash motor.

Dishwasher does not wash


If you are saying that in the wash cycle it fills and then stops it could be that your water temp is too low. Some models will stop to heat the water in the main wash before going into the agitate mode.
