Question about KitchenAid KUDS24SE Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

No lights on panel and will not start

Ran the dishwasher through one cycle and the next time I was ready to use it which was only a few hours later it would not turn on. There are no lights. We checked the breaker, the plug, changed plugs and it is still not working. There is a bit of water standing in the bottom of it but this has happened a couple of times before. We did not buy this product. We have had it since we moved into our home in 2002. Is this probably something easy to fix or does this indicate major repair and is it worth it to repair instead of replace it?? Any help at all would be appreciated! We have a family of 7 and a few days without a dishwasher is a nightmare. We run it usually 2 times a day. THANKS!!!

Whirlpool quiet partner iv. Turn breaker off then on. Displays 4H then goes off few mins later. Press the cancel button and then the POTS AND PANS along with NORMAL buttons start flashing back and forth.

this is not from me but i found it and am passing on..

Thanks for using FixYa. Error code 4h means 4 hour delay start which means that the dishwasher is in delay start mode and has been set to 4 hours. You can either wait for 4 hrs or to start it immediately press the cancel button to cancel the delay start option. After this program the cycle and options and press Start again as the dishwasher will not start the wash until it reaches the delayed hour i.e. till 4hrs. If after 4 hrs still the light blinks and it wont start then you'll have to replace the control panel. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Be very careful, it sounds like an electrical failure, were the machine has cut out to protect you and itself. You need an expert there and quickly. Water and electric are a bad mix and more house fires are caused by washers than most other appliances.

Time to call the business that sold the machine for warranty service or immediate replacement! The threat of losing a sale will usually get them off the dime in short order. Hope this gets the problem(s) resolved in a hurry. Good luck!

Light flashing

reset the dishwasher by touching heated dry and normal let it run through that cycle then through a normal cycle got the error blink again. Reset dishwasher by touching heated dry and normal, ran the test cycle, next ran a normal cycle but turned off the heated dry. This allowed the dishwasher to run through a complete cycle did not get the error blink and confirmed that the heating element was out.

Make sure that you do not open the door during the wash cycle. Wait until all the cycles are complete before opening the door. Especially don't open the door during the drying cycle.
