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

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
Hi, The buzzing sound would be the motor trying to start and it not being able to turn... either something is stuck in the pump and holding it from not starting or the motor its self has gone bad and will not start.
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.
the first thing that your dishwasher does when you turn it on is drain when you turn it on you hear a motor running then it stops then it fills start the washer when it stops to start filling open the door should be no water in the unit if there is you have a drain problem and in fact are washing your dishes in dirty water can be several things that can cause drain problems a piece of food blocking the line at the sink where the drain goes in if its run to a disposer there is a knockout plug that should be removed just stick your finger in there to see if it was removed get you installation instructions and read the part about not removing the drain loop but just about all the time installers will lol if you cant find the instructions go to www.frigidaire.com under customer support can down load them there let me know what you find
