Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDS01FLBL Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

Kitchenaid dishwasher door lost its tension.

The door drops to the floor when opened because it has lost its tension. We called someone to fix this last time. Is it difficult to fix? Can you tell me how? Are the door cable/pulley systems easy to replace? How do you do it? I can get the part locally for $35. or pay a repair man $200. Is is worth the repair man or should I try it myself?

SOURCE: KitchenAid Dishwasher fill up with water after use

It could be a stuck overflow protection float, a bad spray arm seal or door seal seal or food / foreign objects in the way of the door.

SOURCE: KitchenAid Dishwasher Door Pops open during cycle

Hello,

I have had the same problem since our KitchenAid was new. The only solution so far is to try bending the metal door latch down slightly. You will know when you have bent it too far as the door will no longer close. Just bend it back up slightly. I used to work in the appliance industry and got the service man to admit that the door latch has been an issue and there is no real fix. I have looked at the new KA dishwashers and they have since redesigned the door latch. I am going to see if the new latch can be retrofitted into my Kuds01FLSS6 dishwasher. I will post on here if indeed it works.

Good luck
Tom

SOURCE: Kitchenaid dishwasher - door will not latch

The latch needs to be replaced. Kitchen Aid has made two updates to this latch. I.E. 2-revised latches. I just replacd the latch assembly and the dishwasher works fine now. Do a search for kitchen aid repair parts online and hav them shipped to your home. The repair takes five minutes. Un-screw all torx bit screws on door and the latch is under neath. One electrical dip switch held on by another screw and a two prong tab to undo the old latch. This seriously took me five minutes to repair and the parts were $40.00 online shipped.

Hope his helps.

SOURCE: Where can I buy the cable repair kit for my Kitchenaid dishwasher

OK, pretty easy fix. Look at diagram 10 here: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5164885

The link (#24) probably broke and the spring (#18) probably shot off and is lying somewhere behind the dishwasher. Just pull out the dishwasher (careful not to disconnect or crimp any of the hoses) and check to see if both springs (one on each side) can be located. Just replace the old links and re-hook the springs and all should be well.

You can order the link replacement (part #8194001) from kitchenaid at 1-800-422-1230.

SOURCE: The door to our Kitchen Aide dishwasher now drops

Hi, it is likely a broken door spring, or both. Part number 9743986. You can access them by way of removing the screws in the toe panel below the main door panel. Be sure to shut off the power to the unit. With the toe panel removed you should be able to visually inspect for a broken spring, with the aid of a flashlight ot trouble-light. One hook will connect to the hinge while the other end hooks into the dishwasher frame towards the back. Hope that help's and thanks for visiting fixya. Please take a second and rate the solution provided for here today. Good luck. Macmarkus :)

Door sprung?


remove bottom cover. look for an arm at bottom corners. should be two springs attached to give tension. probably got a broken one. drawer rolls out
because door opens farther than it should.

Door spring seems to have broken


Yep! What happens is a "T" shaped metal piece that is "screwed" into the spring and serves as an adjustment of tension tears or bends and falls out of the spring(s). Usually one at a time.

If you are clever you can rebend and strengthen this piece and adjust the tension to normal.

Access this by removing the panel below the door where the toe kick is.

The cause of the problem will be obvious and one side will probably still be intact so you can see how they are supposed to be.

KitchenAid KUDS01FL - door spring tensioner snapped - how do I fix / get parts?


Replaced the tension spring cords. The plastic portion of the cords had broken. I think this is desined to fail since it is such light plastic.

Kitchenaid dishwasher door does not stay up in the open position.


On each side of the dishwasher, near the ground, is a nylon cord and pulley apparatus that keeps the door from flopping down when opened. It probably needs some adjustment of the tension on the cord.
