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 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.

brushes need replacing in motor. Usually cheap enough to buy and do yourself.

Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle


When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

KitchenAid Washing machine stops mid-cycle and stays stopped


sounds like you need to replace your lid switch asssy part number 285671, unit not recognizing the door closed so for safetyreasons stops after first rinse and wont drain/spin. your tripping the switch by bangin on it

1 Answer

Washer fills, drains instead of agitating, fills, etc


ON THIS MACHINE WHEN IT AGGITATES MOTOR ROTATES ONE DIRECTION, WHEN IT PUMPS OUT AND SPINS IT ROTATES THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION. YOUR MACHINE IS ROTATING THE WRONG DIRECTION WHEN IT FILLS., INDICATING THAT THE TIMER IS SENDING VOLTAGE TO WRONG WIRES. SOLUTION , REPLACE TIMER.
PS: MAKE SURE ALL WIRES ARE PLUGGED IN TO MOTOR. WHILE THIS IS UNLIKELY , I HAVE SEEN THIS BE THE PROBLEM.
