I found a site that is important for you to down load the site is ns323666.ip-37-187-156.eu
It is a pdf version of the instruction manual for the dishwasher
I notice that one of the instructions is quote" when using your dishwasher , you should prevent plastic items from contacting the heating element" un quote
most all dishwashers heat their own water above what human hands can stand so from that statement you can use cold water inlet only and the machine will heat it to operating temperature
I got that site by going google and typing in --kelvinator kd12ww dishwasher
then I selected site manual-kelvinator kd12ww dishwasher clicked on that and that address came up with the pdf manual
there are other sites that have parts manuals and heaps of other information
call your local kelvinator service agent and ask them about a heating element
Almost certainly the control board has gone faulty. The favorite is the transformer burns or the thyristor gets very hot and burns due to a bad solder joint. Quickest no noncense repair is to bite the bullet and install a new board.
You may think this is strange, but I am 99% certain that your main problem is a failed heating element in your dishwasher. Pretty bold statement when I don't even know the Make or model of your dishwasher.
After you pull the lower basket out, as you look beneath the wash arm, you will see screws holding down the top of the filter shroud. Take a picture of it with your snazzy cell phone camera as you remove those screws and as you lift things out - for reference when you go to put it all back. While you are down there, feel the entire heating element "circle" Note any breaks and "bubbles." Remove all the debris but watch out for (sharp) broken glass! If you do not see obvious damage to the heating element, reassemble the filter and test. When you see the poor results, a heating element is the root cause. A replacement element cn be ordered and changing it ~may~ require you to pull the DW out (or not) depending on the make and model.
If you are not up to changing the element youself, the service guy can do this.
Good Luck! Please report back with what you find, OK?
I had the same problem with Zanussi ZDT 6252. To fix it, turn power on, close door fully, then open door, turn off then turn back on again. If you follow this sequence the machine is reset and you can select programs again.
Same problem here. I read the manual very carefully. "OptiDry", "ExtraDry", "EcoDry", "condensation drying" -- lots of fancy words to cover the simple fact -- they DO NOT DRY the dishes. There is no heating element. I wish they would just state this up-front. Air drying the dishes for 24 hours after each wash is not workable for most users...
