Question about KitchenAid KUDR24SE Built-in Dishwasher
Opened the door because the dishwasher wasn't washing and there was a plastic measuring cup at the bottom melted from the heating element. I took all the dishes out turned the breaker off for a while then tried again. Doesn't matter which cycle its in it does the same thing. Press start... begins to fill with water... then silence. If it sits long enough eventually it will simply switch over to the green light that says the dishes are clean. When you open it up there is the water that it had filled initially. I can press and hold the Cancel button and it will syphon the water out but thats it.
Thank you for any help.

You want to make sure that the dishwasher is level and secure first of all. Then I would look into the door latch assy. Sounds to me that you are not making all the latch switches when closing normally. When you are slamming it, you are making the switches. The heating element runs through the neutral side of switches, therefor if the switch is broken or the latch is not making, no heating of the water. This results in a default or very long wash time. Check this out first....Catriver..post back.

The latch needs to be replaced. Kitchen Aid has made two updates to this latch. I.E. 2-revised latches. I just replacd the latch assembly and the dishwasher works fine now. Do a search for kitchen aid repair parts online and hav them shipped to your home. The repair takes five minutes. Un-screw all torx bit screws on door and the latch is under neath. One electrical dip switch held on by another screw and a two prong tab to undo the old latch. This seriously took me five minutes to repair and the parts were $40.00 online shipped.
Hope his helps.

Is your Kitchenaid Dishwasher a model KUDI02?
If yes, you need to order item 10 on the page link below:

Great job walking through the possible causes! Hey, it is time to check the heating element itself. First visually, looking for brakes and then feeling for "bubbles" on the round element rod. Also see if it moves excessivly when you wiggle.
If no problem obvious, after you disconnect the dishwasher from power, use a multimeter to check for resistance (Ohms) If none, look for broken (heavy guage) wires and replace what's broken - probably the element itself.
If the element checks out good, suspect the thermistor then the controller/PCB.
Good Luck! Please report back what you find, OK?

The problem is the control panel. You may have to shut the power off for a few seconds to reset the control board, then check to see if it works. If not, the control board has a break in the wiring or the keypad is no good.
