    No, nothing lights up. My brother took the bottom panel out and said there was definitely power going to the machine. Thanks

    Same problem, the DW is getting power but t just won't turn on and all the lights are off.

    Mine won't start either. It was working fine yesterday. Today no lights will come on. I tried plugging it into another working outlet ....no dice. Is there a reset button somewhere? This dishwasher is only 6 years old and this is the third time I've had to have it worked on (different problems). I'm very disappointed in its durability, but when it works it really works.

    Does it light up at all? Take off bottom panel and open up electric junction box and make sure there is power actually getting to the machine using a tester.

Open the dishwasher door, press in rapid sequence the following keys: Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, High Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry. Close the door until it latches and press the Cancel key. The machine should reset itself. It worked for me when I had the same problem

This is happening because you have a very bad fault, a Phase to Earth short, problem. Leave machine UNPLUGGED, Breaker/Fuses OUT. do NOT use it, nor Touch it, It is possible to get severe electric shock. PLEASE get a registered serviceman to inspect this unit.

SOURCE: Kitchenaid dishwasher will not turn on or drain

Float valve is jammed.

Look inside the machine on the floor will be a small float valve. Looks like a small upside down cup. Lift it and clear anything from underneath.

The valve is a safety feature to stop the machine from over filling. If anything gets under the valve it will jam open and stop the machine.

Not working?

Check for a clog internal or external.

Scoop as much water our as you can. Open the cover on the floor of the machine. Usually just turns and lifts out or snaps out some are screwed in. Take your time and try not to force anything. Look for a clog there.

Check for clog in the drain. The dishwasher will connect to the drain under your sink and run either directly to the drain or into your disposal unit. Remove open the connections and look for a clog. Clear if necessary.

Not the clog?

Water is pumped out by the machine via an internal pump located under the base. If it fails the water will collect until it trips the float valve. First scoop out all the water from the machine and run it again. If water comes in and it runs to the point it fills again and trips the float then either the pump or timer is faulty.

Pump check.

Remove the machine. It will be held in place by screws directly into the counter top. You may have to lower it to get it out. The front feet turn with a wrench to lower.

Turn off the water supply. Run the unit again until you get to the drain cycle.

Connect a test light or voltage tester to the terminals at the pump. Check for voltage at the pump. If you have voltage replace the pump. If no voltage the timer is faulty.

Timer problem?
Some can be replaced as a unit others are integral to the control panel. Turn style can be replaced. Touch control can not.

There is no fuse box inside the dishwasher. The fuse box or electrical panel for your house is where you shut off the power to the dishwasher.

SOURCE: Kitchenaid dishwasher making funny noises while running

HI. this sounds like a busted impeller in the pump housing. there are two impellers. one for the wash and one for the drain. the drive shaft will strip the impeller center nut, causing this noise. I would inspect the pump housing for lose impeller action. replace the faulty impeller if found to be damaged.

SOURCE: dishwasher won't start

Hi,
The door latch pulls the door tightly closed to prevent water leakage around the door. It is also designed to prevent operation while the door is open. The door latch works in concert with the door switch to ensure that the door is tightly closed and latched
The door switch is a separate part from the door latch and is found inside the cabinet. The switch is off when the door is open. Depressing the switch closes the circuit and enables dishwasher operation. Closing the door does not depress the switch all the way. Only when the door is closed and latched, does the door fully depress the switch.
If the door latch is not properly aligned it may not pull the door tightly closed and the door switch will not be fully depressed. Unless the switch is fully depressed the dishwasher will not operate.
It is a simple matter to determine whether the door latch is the problem. Simply open the door, close the latch and select a cycle and depress the switch. Note that if the test is successful, with the door open, the dishwasher will operate and water may spray out. Make sure to first remove all tools from inside the dishwasher. Do not reach inside the dishwasher during the test. Now, inspect the cabinet where the door makes contact with it and locate the door switch. It may have a protruding button or spike or more likely it is a hole with a piece of metal or plastic inside it. You must fully depress that switch. If the switch is recessed, then use a non-conductive object, such as a wooden pencil, to depress the switch.

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.

I have a KitchenAid dishwasher model # KUPDO1DLBSO, S/N FM4003050. There is no power to the control panel, no lights and won't start. It stopped in the middle of the cycle with water left in the...


Hello,

what most likely is going to be the problem is a blown thermal fuse that attaches to the control panel housing. gain access to the control panel and use should see the thermal fuse,the housing for the control board is grey and this part is white.Remove the wires to it and check for contininity on it using a ohm meter set to a low ohms setting. If it turns out to be good the next thing to check is the switch(s) on the latch asm using the same method to check them as the fuse.BEFORE CHECKING EITHER OF THOSE BE SURE TO DISCONNECT POWER TO THE DISHWASHER

Good luck, i hope that i 've helped you to figure out what is wrong with your dishwasher,

Kitchenaid dishwasher kudi02ir will not start!


If the unit won't start and there are no signs of power make sure you're dishwasher is getting power. If so then likely you will need a new fuse which if you go to the link below, you can download a video to show you how to replace the fuse on your dishwasher.

My dishwasher won't start.


FIRST MAKE SURE YOU HAVE POWER TO THE DISHWASHER. IF IT HAS A LIGHTED PANEL AND ITS LIGHTED UP, YOU HAVE POWER. IF NOT LIGHTED UP WHEN TURNED ON, THEN YOU HAVE A POWER LOSS PROBLEM WITH A FUSE OR BREAKER OUT TO THE SUPPLY WIRE TO THE DISHWASHER. CHECK YOUR ELECTRICAL FUSE BOX OR FUSE THAT SAYS DISHWASHER IN THE ELECTRICAL BOX IN YOUR HOUSE. RE-SET THE BREAKER OR CHANGE THE FUSE. IF IT STILL DOSE NOT START UP THEN YOU MAY HAVE AN ELECTRICAL CONNECTION UNDER THE DISHWASHER THAT IS NOT CORRECT OR NEEDS TO BE LOOKED AT BY AN ELECTRICIAN. DO NOT TRY TO CHECK THIS AREA UNLESS YOU HAVE THE FUSE OR BREAKER OFF. THEN LOOK TO SEE IF YOU HAVE A LOOSE CONNECTION. RE-TIGHTEN THE LOSE CONNECTION FOUND, TURN ON THE FUSE OR BREAKER AGAIN, AND SEE IF THE LIGHTED PANEL LIGHTS UP. IF IT STILL DOSE NOT START UP, THEN NEXT CHECK THE DOOR TO MAKE SURE IT IS CLOSING ALL THE WAY, THERE IS A SWITCHON THE DOOR THE SENCES FULL CLOSED AND WON'T START UP IF THE SWITCH IS NOT CLOSING. IF THIS DOES NOT FIX IT THEN YOU WILL NEED TO CALL YOUR LOCAL DISHWASHER FIX IT MAN. DISHWASHER HAS A PROBLEM HE MUST FIX.

Kitchen aide dishwasher won't start. Water left in bottom after last cycle. No lights will come on along the panel. KUDI01FL


I had this and the thermal fuse needed to be replaced ($14 part).

If the lights won't come on on the controller and you are sure you have power to the dishwasher, then check the thermal fuse.
1. turn off the power to the machine
2. open the door and unscrew all the screws along the inner edge
3. gently split apart the layers of the door and access the controller; it is inside the door and just below the buttons that are supposed to light up.
4. the thermal fuse is white and clipped onto the side of the control box close to the top of the door.
5. unplug the leads going into it and check it with a multimeter - if no current goes through it then it needs to be replaced

relatively easy fix - good luck!

Dishwasher not working


Check for power with a tester at the junction box under the machine. If power check for a broken door latch switch.
