Dishwasher fills partially, stops, and then heating element comes on.
I started my dishwasher last night and when I checked it this morning all the dishes on the lower level were coated with dish detergent. So I started the dishwasher again but it only filled with water for approx. 1 min. It stopped and did nothing. I hit the reset button and it drained normally. I tried to run just the rinse cycle, but the same thing happened. We noticed a funny smell, so I opened the washer and discovered that the heating element had kicked on. It drains well, but will not fill completely and progress through the cleaning cycle???

• Check the circuit of the heating element (26 ohms).
• Check for an open circuit heater cut-out.
• Check pressure switch open circuit (connections 11-14).
• Check wiring and connections between module card, pressure switch and heater.
• If all above is OK, replace module card.
dishwasher leaking from the door or from the bottom of the door is common problem and yes its advisable to get it fixed.but if its having any other problem other then leaking then it has to be checked first.but leaking problem is common it can be solved.first from which part of the door area the leak is occuring that has to be checked. Some common leaking trouble makers.... Leaks at the door: Door gasket loose/torn Corner gaskets or door baffle/vent gasket Door lock/latch loose/broken Split spray arm Over filling with water...usually the level is just under the heating element is normal Something leaking through the door...like the soap or rinse agent dispenser gasket, silverware basket button. Door hinge(s) bent Wrong soap was used...dish sink soap instead of dishwasher soap Rinse aid being used with mechanically softened water ( makes foam or suds inside the dishwasher )
Leaks from under the unit: Look for whiting or calcium stain on the motor and pump assembly = motor and pump assembly seal leak...access panel removal help Hose for upper spray arm split Fill hose split or fill hose spout air inlet is calcium covered Drain hose is split Rusted liner...metal liners only Fill valve leaking or allowing water to fill all the time Heating element ends....where they come out through the dishwasher liner Float or float gasket

Press the normal wash then heated dry buttons in the same sequence two to three times. The unit will enter diagnostics mode, but can be stopped by pressing the cancel button.It will clear any existing faults and makes the dishwasher to operate normally. To prevent the issue from recurring, run your hot water faucet first to ensure that hot water is present in the entire supply line before starting the filling.
Check if the other functions of the dishwasher are OK such us when filling, draining or the heating element heats up properly. The control board may have detected some errors and it is not proceeding. You may have to have the parts involved in the faulty function checked out such as the valves for the drain and the fill if your machine is not filling or draining properly or filters blocked. Check the heating element and inspect the assembly for burns especially on the relays. The machine may not be heating correctly that is why it is not finishing the cycle. If these parts checks out OK, you may want to have the control board checked out or replaced.
In some supply systems, there is a safety valve ( commonly referred to as a shuttle valve) that has a small ball bearing that blocks the water from flowing if a water line bursts.. This is supposed to be a safety feature to prevent flooding but can be an annoyance if that ball moves and blocks water flow from coming in.
That, or your water inlet valve may be the prime suspects for this problem..
Hope this helps,
The dishwasher should heat the water to about 55 C as the heating cycle starts.
In these cycle, the dishwasher pauses after has filled with water and wait for the water to reach the temperature.
If the water isn't being heated (because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. Another possible reason is that the timer unit is defective.
If you have observed anything different post a comment.
My (KUDI01TJ)Dishwasher did the same thing.
I Pressed start, it acted like it was starting and then turned off.
I started the rapid advance service diagnostic feature:
1.Close dishwasher door
2.press "Hi-Temp Wash"
3.press "Energy Saver Dry"
4.press "Hi-Temp Wash"
5.press "Energy Saver Dry"
This started the diagnostics and the dishwasher went through each cycle.
After this, my dishwasher worked fine.
I think the controller must have got in some wierd mode and unpluging the washer would not clear it out but running the
diagnostics cleared it.
Hope this works for you
