SOURCE: Where can I buy the cable repair kit for my Kitchenaid dishwasher

OK, pretty easy fix. Look at diagram 10 here: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5164885

The link (#24) probably broke and the spring (#18) probably shot off and is lying somewhere behind the dishwasher. Just pull out the dishwasher (careful not to disconnect or crimp any of the hoses) and check to see if both springs (one on each side) can be located. Just replace the old links and re-hook the springs and all should be well.

You can order the link replacement (part #8194001) from kitchenaid at 1-800-422-1230.

SOURCE: Kitchenaid dishwasher leaking from door

Check the screws on the pump cover under the lower spray arm (the spray arm is easy to remove, the screws are torx - maybe a torx 10 or 15, so a regular screwdriver wont work). They come loose on ours every 6-12 months and spray water at the door, causing it to leak all over our wood floor. I routinely tighten those screws now before they come loose enough to cause the problem.

SOURCE: KitchenAid Dishwasher (model KUDS01IJBL) has black gunk inside

That black gunk is caused by soap deposits and food particles that do not get washed down the drain. This all collects in the area around the door gasket and front of the wash tub and forms a sticky black sludge. You need to periodically clean the interior of the dishwasher out with a non-abrasive cleaner with some bleach in it to kill bacteria. You should also check the wash pump sump (located under the lower spray arm) to make sure it is not being clogged with food and debris. In order to access the pump sump, you will need to perform the following:

1. Remove the lower wash rack and lower spray arm.

2. Remove the upper wash rack and spray arm.

3. Locate the screws holding in the upper spray feed tube. Remove the screws to the feed tube and turn the whole assembly 1/4 turn to the right (CW direction). The entire assembly will unlock from the wash pump assembly and lift out.

4. Remove the strainer assembly (known as an accumulator) that covers the pump sump area.

Inspect the sump area for food particles and debris that may be contributing to the mess inside the wash tub. If you need some guidance, pcappliancerepair.com has some very helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you.

If you have any questions, or require further assistance, please let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.

SOURCE: How to replace the door seal on a Simpson Silencio

The around the tank seal just pushes into the groove. make sure that you copy the way the old one comes out. The bottom of the door seal is a bit awkward. Thsi has some screws that are difficult to access. Take the door liner off and possibly two of the hinge screws so that the door can swing up at the bottom to allow easy access to the screws. You might get someone to help ny holding the door while you do this. Check tah the new seal fits the same way as the old one comes out. Then reassemble

It is likely the thermal fuse is cut off and will need to be reset or replaced depending on the model number of your dishwasher. Please provide actual model number in the comments.

The wash pump and drain pump are different. So it is likely the wash pump is choked and trips or the motor is faulty.

It is likely the flap valve (item 5) or the chopper (item 6) are damaged and could be replaced before you get to the wash motor.

Ineed a manual for kitchenaid dishwasher


Which model dishwasher do you have? KitchenAid has the manuals for many of their appliances here: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/customer-service . Click on the Locate Manuals and Guides option on the right side of the page. You can find your model number on the left edge of the dishwasher door. (When the door is open, the plaque is visible.) If the model is also sold at Sears, Manage My Life will probably have the manual. See http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals .

If you add a comment with your model, I'll be glad to provide more information and the direct link to the manual.

I found some black plastic under the dishwasher and then found some more... it appears to be long as if it was the seal or something across the bottom of the door. Can you tell me what it is and what I...


Hello,
Its hard to tell from the description what it is. Does it like item #4 in first link OR item #31 in second link. If it is item #31 in second link its soundproofing insulation that attaches to kick plate and has come loose,a couple dabs of super glue would reattach it to kickplate

If it is item 4 thatsa seal on bottom of door and needs to be there to prevent leaks

Seal on door came off where can I get a new one?


Replacement door gaskets can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The first three websites also have exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying any parts you may need. If the model is correct, the gasket is listed as item 3 under the "Tub and Frame" parts list on most of the parts listings. The part number will depend upon the model number. The model number you provided is not complete.

If you need instructions on how to replace most common dishwasher gaskets, the following link can give you some guidance:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3555822-my_dishwasher_leaks

Most dishwasher gaskets are the press in place variety. However, some require gluing in place with a special rubber cement. The glue will come with the installation kit.

If you have any questions, please post back with your complete model number (located around the door edge frame, or door opening). I hope you find this information helpful.

The wash light and the start/cancel button keep flashing. How do I fix it? I have a Kitchen Aide dishwasher model KUDS02FR


Hi,


The clean light usually will blink due to a failure to heat the water properly. This dishwasher looks for a temperature rise of the water during a heating cycle if it fails to see this rise for multiple cycles it may shut down and blink the clean light.
There are a few things to check before resetting the control.

-The unit not being level so both door switches do not make contact
-
The sump plugged up so water is not pumping across the heater (see sump clean out below)


- Not enough water filling the dishwasher


- The heat element is not working


To reset the control use this key dance within 5 seconds press:HEATED DRY, NORMAL, HEATED DRY, NORMAL
This will cause you to enter the diagnosis cycle once this is finished or you hit cancel the control should be unlocked and ready to use.


Thank you !

Our Kitchenaid KUDS01FLSS6 dishwasher door string broke, but unsure what I need to pull apart out to replace?


The "STRING" is referred to as a LINK. The link has a plastic connector glued to each end. It is common for the plastic to get brittle with age (even less than 5 years) or the nylon cord to wear down and break. That is why you see the frayed cord. You have to pull the dishwasher out to fix the problem. I had to order my link online because parts store in my city didn't have it in stock. Go to the Kitchenaid website to and key in your model number to get the parts schematic for your dishwasher. Under Customer Care, go to Locate Manuals and Guides, key in your model # and click Go. At the bottom of the web page you'll see Parts List. Click on the link and this pdf pops up: http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%208194009.pdf.) From the schematic you can find on page 7 "Link, Door Balance" which is #24 part 8535568. The spring hooks on to the back of the dishwasher frame and runs parallel to the floor. The Link end with the round hole attaches to the spring and the other end slips/hooks over the bracket arm that is attached to the door. Good Luck

Dishwasher door hing broke


You need to write down the model number of your dishwasher and seek a local supplier who carries the hinge replacement for that model. It will likely take a while to order the part. You might want to try online. I remember a good dishwasher repair guide site at
http://yourhandymanzone.com/Your_Handyman_Zone_How_To_Pages_Appliance_Zone_Dishwasher.htm

I think they offer a link to seek four free estimates from appliance contractors who may be able to fix it faster--since they might have the part on hand.
