Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

I have an electronic operating Kitcheaid Dishwasher. It has a tendency to stop in the middle of a cycle without warning. This can happen at different times of the day and at different stages of washing. We open the door, make sure the racks are pushed in tight and close and hold the door tight for a few moments. The dishwaser comes back on, but this can repeat in the course of one wash.

Dishwasher stopping mid-cycle, water left in bottom, sometimes detergent dispenser does not open.

Man I love posts like yours. Makes answering easier.

In short, yes. You probably are right that the dishwasher is aborting mid-cycle, but the why is a tricky question. There are wet parts inside as well as moving parts and high temperature. It is possible your control electronics are being exposed to moisture mid-cycle, causing the dishwasher to cut out. This would have been easy to spot by the technician though. An alternate theory could be that the dishwasher's door sensor is stating that the dishwasher gets opened mid cycle due to all the shaking around. This wouldn't have been picked up by your technician and would cause the dishwasher to effectively "pause" itself without draining or using soap. Check and make sure the door is latched securely and see if it's easy to trigger the door sensor (pull gently on the door while the dishwasher is running).

Unfortunately, the best answer I have for investigation is to "babysit." Grab your laptop, pop in a movie, get a nice drink, and plop yourself down next to the dishwasher once you set it to run. The moment it stops working properly, take a look at everything you can.

Bosch SHU3300 dishwasher stuck on hot water intake (w/ no power)

It sounds like the fill vlave is stuck open. This can happen if your pressure is low or if the machine is old. I would start by replacing the vlave.
