Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDP02CR Built-in Dishwasher
I have an almost 4 yr. old Kitchenaid under the counter dishwasher, model # KUDP01IL. I noticed this evening that rather than its usual quiet operation, it was louder when draining I guess. Does this mean my pump has a problem or is it something else? What do I do? My use and care manual did not address this problem.
The problem is defintely the pump.
Afetr a number of years the pump components start to wear out. Some parts disintergrate and float around in the pump assemby causing the pump to be noisy. Because of the nature of the faut - the onset of noise is sudden.
If you are a handy man, pull the pump apart. Clean out the ruined parts and see if you can make a new part to replace the old one. Whatever you do, don't make the mistake that I made the first time - don't make a part out of ANYTHING that the dishwasher detergent will dissolve or corrode - like mild steel for instance. Use stainless steel if you have to make a part. A good source of stainless-steel is an old pair of kitchen tongs. These are made of SS and are thin enough to cut with WISS Snips, can be drilled and shaped and still retain strength to do the job.
Use some imagination and you will solve the problem. Dishwashers do not involve any high tech. It's just a matter of replacing what wears out.
