Question about Dishwashers

Open Question

Kitchenaid Superba (model # KUDS01FLBL6). The light by the control lock/sanitized/clean on the control panel keeps blinking. I called Kitchenaid and they recommended turning off the circuit breaker. I did this for 5 minutes and the light is still blinking. Washer won't run. Help!! Family is in for Christmas and I can't wash everything by hand...I'll never leave the kitchen!

SOURCE: Clean Light Flashes

I found this post elsewhere. It seems to have worked for me: Our KitchenAid KUDP series dishwasher went into a mode where it would not start and would only respond to the cancel/drain button. The clean light would flash 7 times in a row, stop, and then repeat. I read that the 7 flashes indicates an error code and that the dishwasher has detected a problem in the heater element circuit. I tried to reset the error mode by turning off power for 15 minutes, however, that did not work.
We called for a repair. The service person found that the dishwasher was completely fine except that it had gone into an error mode. The technician reset the error mode and charge us $115.00.

The reset sequence used was reported to be the following:
1) Crack the door open.
2) Within 3 seconds press the following sequence - Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry
3) Close and latch the door
4) Press the cancel button (the circle with the triangle in it)

We were told the dishwasher expects to see the dish water temperature rise in a certain way. If the water does not heat in this way, the dishwasher becomes confused and thinks the heater element has failed. In deed, this happened just following and extended power failure and our hot water tank was cool. I am curious if this code will work for anybody else with the same problem and save a service call and 115 bucks. Overall, this seems to be a serious logic flaw in the design.

How do I turn off the childproof lock on my KitchenAid Superbua dishwasher?


This depends on the exact model of the KitchenAid Superba dishwasher. There is a button on the control panel that will indicate the Control Panel Lock. Usually this is labeled Control Lock (Hold 3 sec) or 4 Hour Delay (Control Lck 3 Sec). The phrase in parentheses is below the key in a smaller font.

Press and hold the button to toggle the lock on and off. Sometimes you have to hold it for more than the listed 3 seconds.

I hope this helps.

We put this unit on self clean and now it wont turn on nor open.


I had the same problem with a Superba wall oven. In my case, the bracket mount for the door lock warped due to the heat of the self clean cycle. We were able to open the door by inserting a coat hanger into the slight opening at the top of the door and sliding the lock lever to the left. It was a pretty easy self-repair - 1) turn off breaker 2) slide oven out 2-3" 3) remove oven front trim pieces 4) remove screws that mount control panel 5) this should give you access to the door lock mechanism.
good luck

Over temperature reset button keeps ringing and blinking


I called the KitchenAid customer support number. Found out that control goes off when the temperature of the fridge is above 48 degrees (i.e., over a few days, the food would be spoiling). This is not the case for ours, since everything seems to be working fine. They said there is probably something malfunctioning with that button/control, and there is no manual turn-off mechanism. We have to call someone to come and fix it.
