My Kitchenaid dishwasher model 30SXSS is 5 months old and the lights on the control panel are blinking. The panel on the outside of the door says "okay to add dishes". The d/w will not run. Help!

Sounds like the door latch could possibly be bad. If its 5 months old its still under warranty. Call the company for repair.

gagaweaver, couple of things you want to check here. Check the upper spray arm for any clogged holes or cracks along the edges. Position it in the 12:00 position and run the dishwasher for a little, open the door and verify that it has rotated. Make sure the water entering the dishwasher is min. 120 degrees, use a thermometer. Makes sure that there is no large pans or dishes blocking the upper spray arm from spraying onto the inner door. If all that checks out. You will have to remove the lower spray arm, filter cover and chopper cover to make sure the chopper screen is not coated or plugged up. If it is, it will prevent a good flow of water to the upper spray arm. Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: problems with Whirlpool dishwasher model GU1500XTKB0

will these units (silo and jtrip) start back on their own? if so, it is likely they are heating the water.
otherwise it sounds like a logic board, unless there is a defective door switch or sensor issue.
electronics seem to be a recurring problem with whirlpool.
i would ask whirlpool (electorlux) to either buy it back or fix it.
good luck

SOURCE: my KitchenAid dishwasher will not run. Start light is blinking

Make sure the controls are not locked. Some units have the ability to lock the controls so that kids cannot turn on the dishwaher. You can also try unpugging the power to the unit from under the sink for about 10 minutes and then plug it back in. This may reset the control board if it has a fault and stopped from error code.

yep you can just get springs from lowes or home dept or your local hardware store; they're often in with the hardware (i.e., screws) and not plumbing. remember that the springs need to stretch out a bit, too; so you may end up buying springs that look shorter than they should, but they eventually habituate.

Is a gap at top between outer door panel and inner control door on Kitchenaid dishwasher KUDE normal?


When the dishwasher starts the drying cycle, there has to be vent that the steam can escape and it just so happens to be on the left side.

Is gap between front door panel and inner panel on a KUDE Kitchenaid dishwasher normal?


Generally, dishwasher doors don't seal to the cabinet. Hot air MAY escape through the gap - this is pretty normal.

How do you reset a KitchenAid dishwasher model: KUDE70FXSS4?


Press High Temp Scrub and Dry Heat option buttons in quick succession one after the other for about 6 sec until all the lights come on. Then press Cancel button. This should reset the dishwasher. Press equivalent buttons on the panel if the actual ones above are not there.
Make sure the dishwasher detergent dispenser lid is shut and the dishwasher door is shut before you start the above reset sequence.

I have a Kitchenaid Dishwasher that the two panel lights labeled 'normal' and 'cancel' are blinking and it is will not run. Anyone have any ideas? .


Hi,
That is a problem with the communication between the control board and the control panel...
Kill all power to the DW...
Remove the back of the door...
Then find the ribbon cable going from the control board to the control panel...clean the ends with alcohol...
Then try it again...if it still does it then replace the ribbon cable and the control panel...

Buy the parts from www.repairclinic.com they have a 365 day return policy so you can return any parts if they prove not to be the problem...click here..

We just recieved our new kitchenaid heating element for the dishwasher, but it came with an electronic control or circuit board thing, and there is a note that both must be installed. We easily replaced...


Hi,
The control goes in the door...it is easy to get to.
Just take the screws out of the inside panel of the door, they are around the outside edge of the interior of the door. The panel will then lift off and the control will be near the top on the inside.
Make sure the power is turned off to the dishwasher and then one by one remove the wires from the old board and place them on the new board. then remove the old board and fasten in the new one. replace the panel and then give it a trial run.
Everything should be working just fine but some of the timing will be a bit different.

KUDS24SE KitchenAid door latch broke. How do I take the door apart


If the door cannot be opened, remove the the outside lower panel. (2 screws at bottom of panel, then lift off. Take a long screw driver (be sure power is removed first!) and push up behind the control panel at the latch at the very top middle of the door. You can them open the door and remove the screws that hold the control panel on. When the control panel is removed you will have access to the door handle and latch pieces. These parts can be ordered through sears partsdirect web site. Good luck.
