Question about KitchenAid KUDC25CH Dishwasher

1 Answer

KitchenAid model KUDS25SH (Stainless) latch has come loose.

The latch has come loose but still opens the door. How do I access the front panel? I have taken out the screws around the edge, but can't get the panel off.

    How do I pull out the control panel? It seems to be hanging up where the left side vent is. There seems to be some trick to getting the control panel off. I don't want to force it and break something. Any secrets?

Remove the six or seven screws that secure the entire control panel to the door (screws are located inside of door around the top. Pull out the control panel and the door latch mechanism will be right there for you to work on.

Door wont open


I believe your best answer can be found here (ensuring again the power is disconnected before beginning):
http://www.fixya.com/support/t116203-dishwasher_door_latch
I would suggest finding the full model number, comparing to the list at this Sears site, and viewing the "door and latch" manual for your specific model number. This will provide insight on how the door is assembled, and can provide details on what part(s) you might need to order.
Hope this helps.

Can I replace the white exterior door panel with stainless steel?


Yes you can replace the panels. There are 3 panels. The problem is only 2 of the 3 panels are availble. The large panel can be found here:

http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=4508020 or here:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kitchenaid-Parts/Dishwasher-Parts/Model-KUDS25SHBS1/0593/0130000/P9080030/00001?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=
The panel below that panel is no longer available so you would end up with a large stainless panel and a white panel below that.

I checked several sources for the panels. All 4 of the sources that I checked state the panel (item 5 of above link) is not available.

Also the bottom toe panel is black (Item 8 above link) on the stainless model. You could sand and paint your existing one (enamel) black.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

The handle opener on my my Kitchenaid whisperquiet dishwasher is completely loose and I can't open the dishwasher to remove my clean dishes. What can I do???


The idea is to lift up on the part of the latch that is fixed to the body of the washer. The door part of the latch slides under this peice. If the handle mechanism is broken, it will not depres the door part of the latch to allow it to open. therefore, we have to pickup the latch part fixed to the body.

To get the door open, take a clothes hanger and cut off a 12" peice with a pair of pliers. Bend the last 1.25" at 90 degress angle. Make another bend about 4 " from that to make another 90 degree angle. This will give you leverage. Insert the first bent end between the top of the door and the counter. Rotate it so that the end is facing down. Feel for a metal plate. When you hit the plate with the probe, turn your hanger so that it lifts up the plate and simultaneously pull on the door handle. The door should come open.

Now you have to get the handle repaired, but at least you know how to open the door.

Can't open door


get a coat hanger or flexible wire and try to run it under latch from the top. This may be difficult depending on how your countertop is. Once it's under the latch from one side to the other, pull up on both sides of wire to raise the latching mechanism. Open door.

KITCHENAID DISHWASHER KUD1021RBL1 WILL NOT START


Check for a tripped circuit breaker, inspect the wiring that connects to the dishwasher for breaks. Is the door latch locking? If the door is out of alignment the door switch may not completely engage. To test this, with the door open, close the latch and select a cycle and depress the switch(water may spray-and make sure nothing is setting inside the dishwasher)The switch is probably a little hole with plastic or metal inside. Using the eraser end of a wooden pencil, push inside the hole to press the switch in completely.
You may be able to realign the latch by loosening the screws and moving the striker plate. You may have to remove the control panel to access the screws.

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.

Door handle will not engage with latch to open door.


yea but the trick is the latch acces is behind console not the front panel, you need to unistall the d/w slightly to remove strike plate holding broken latch closed, door needs to be opened to gain access to console screws
