Question about KitchenAid KUDC10IXSS Builtin Dishwasher

Open Question

Our Kitchenaid Dishwasher model # KUDC101XWH4 ls leaving a large amount of soapsuds. This just started after almost a year of being trouble-free. We are using the recommended detergent. We also tried changing detergent. We checked and the detergent door is working OK. The suds cause a slight water leak.

SOURCE: KitchenAid Dishwasher fill up with water after use

Is the water clean water or dirty water? This may sound like an ignorant question, but it can make a difference. If the water is clean water, it sounds like you could have a bad fill valve. If the dishwasher is filling with water when it is not running, chances are the fill valve is leaking. The valve is closed when the float switch senses the tub filling to a certain level. The valve is also closed when not energized by the control board during drain, drying and off cycles. However, if the valve diaphragm is not seating properly when closed, it will continue to leak by. That's probably why you don't notice it while is running and it has a chance to fill during the night when not in use. Here's what to look for: With the dishwasher off, take a towel and dry the tub as much as possible. Now, locate the fill port where the water comes in (usually on the left hand side of the tub). Watch this fill port closely for several minutes to see if water is running in. It could be as minute as a trickle or drip. If any water is coming in at all, the fill valve should be replaced. Now, another problem that can occur is when you notice dirty water staying in the tub or overflowing. This is usually caused by a bad check valve in the drain pump that's allowing water to leak back from the sink into the tub. Or, you do not have a high loop in the drain line. Here's what to look for: Check to make sure the drain line has a high loop as it leaves the dishwasher and before it gets to the drain pipe at the sink. That is, make sure the drain hose is looped above the trap in the sink and not laying under the sink somewhere. You can also try filling the sink with water and open the dishwasher door. Drain the sink to see if anything is getting fed back into dishwasher. If you see water starting to fill in the tub, chances are you could have a bad check valve. Some dishwashers have a check valve in the drain pump, while other models have the check valve located in the drain hose itself. Some don't have one at all. That's why the positioning of the drain hose can be important. Good luck to you and I hope this may help. If you determine a cause, post back with comments if you need advice on how to replace anything.

SOURCE: KitchenAid KUDP02 built-in dishwasher will not fill with water

Couple of things that come to mind here... May be helpful or not - but after all this is free ifo and probably worth what you are paying!!!

Anyway:

1: Have you tried removing power from the appliance?? All these modern appliances use a microprocessor and - like MS WINDOWS - need a kick up the bum now and then - (Well.. with Windows it seems to be every day- hour -minute - or so)

2: Dishwashers are installed with water reduction valves, so there could be a problem with one of there (particularly the hot water side).

3: The water inlet is controlled by soleniod valves (read: electronic valves). If the valves are not opening, no water will enter the appliance, so there could be a problem with the valves.

SOURCE: dishwasher does not clean dishes and leaves spots on everything!!

The problem is hard water that is leaving the spots. There is a fantastic product out called the dishasher filtration system. It filters the water going into your dishwasher and works amazing. It is very affordable and very easy to install. You can get it at www.dishwasherfilter.com.

SOURCE: KitchenAid Dishwasher Leaking from under Door

I had a similar problem with a KUDM25SHWH1 dishwasher. Rubber seal looked fine. I found an incredible tip on another fixi it site. One possible problem iss the pump cover screws may have worked loose and is squirting water directly on the door seal. Man that was it! I saw a couple of looses screws and a small portion of the pump cover gasket showing. I loosened the pump top, reset the gasket tightened it all down...no leaks! The pump I refer to is located directly below the spray arm inside the washer. Easy to get to. Another tip was to look for a split sspray arrm that may spray water directly into the door seal.

Why is my dishwasher leaking soap foam from the lower left area of the door?


A leaking dishwasher can be caused by excessive soapsuds. Excessive soapsuds are the most common reason dishwashers leak. Excessive soapsuds will cause dishwashers to leak from the door. Good dishwasher detergent will have no more than half inch of suds on top of the water. So any time your dishwasher is leaking from the door open the door, if there is more than a half inch of suds your problem is in your soap. One drop of hand soap, hand dish washing soap, or any other soap will cause dishwashers to leak. Now, I am not suggesting that you intentionally put this soap in the dishwasher because if you did the soapsuds would be from top-to-bottom of your dishwasher. Now if there are a lot of suds you can fix it by pouring vinegar or cold water into the dishwasher and running it, this will kill the subs.

There are soapsuds in the bottom of the dishwasher when the cycle is done


This sounds like the dishwasher got the wrong type of soap. It is a real problem to get the wrong soap rinsed out..follow the directions given by the repairman..it may take 5 or 6 cycles... The jet dry is just an extra in this issue...it will be okay when the soap is fully rinsed out.

My new (less than 1 year old) Kitchenaid fridge (the model with the freezer at the bottom) has recently started to freeze the vegetables. The temperature setting is still at 38 degrees so I am not sure...


check the back of the vegetable bins to see if there is an opening that you can adjust. sometimes this slot type opening is in front or on the side and is there to adjust the amount of air/humidity

Particle residue on glasses in top basket for glasses at the corners


The oldest dishwasher I have replaced was a Kithcenaid installed in 1953. It was a 24" built in with a smaller door, a handle looked like it was for a safe, and it had an s-trap underneath. The 90 year old customer said it did the same thing. My advice is to run a dishwasher cleaner through a hot cycle according to manufacturers directions. Check the holes in the spray arms carefully for any debris. Our service guys advise not to use gel or liquid type soap as it leaves a tiny residue after each load which will eventually clog your internal plumbing. Always use the least amount of soap you can get away with and POWDER is prefered.
