Question about KitchenAid Dishwashers

KitchenAid KUDS01 Starts then stops ...

Dishwasher starts, in the first minute the pump runs and drains out water, after another 2 minutes, dishwasher stops and all lights go out on the control panel.

Does this no matter what cycle option(s) are selected.

Tried recycling the power. No help.

Strange that the first thing that the dishwasher does 'drains out' first...

All help appreciated !

SOURCE: my dishwasher shuts itself off

The lights will typically blink when the door comes open. It may be that when the washer warms up, parts of it expands and allows the door to open slightly. It may also be that the trigger that registers the door being shut is not being tripped.

SOURCE: another inlet / drain light cycle interruption problem!

When the water stops too soon, it could be the "over flow" is stuck in the downward position, therefore the dishwasher thinks it's going to over flow. Check that out. Otherwise I'm afraid this sounds like the circuit board is shot.

SOURCE: Diplomat intergrated dishwasher error code FA

FA is a problem with the tubidity sensor. By holding down the power button, it stops, but just repeats everytime you try a new wash cycle. So keep doing it and you can atleast use it. If you want to go one step further and find a permanent solution try feeling around in the sump (where the filter slots in) being careful for any broken glass. Other than that it will probably be a strip-down job to examine the internal hoses and the pump; not a DIY job to be honest.

You either need a water valve, if the dishwasher isn't filling with enough water, or you need to run a dishwasher cleaner through it.

If you are still trying to sort out this issue try the following.

From what you say then it is most likely the aqua sensor on the side of the dishwasher. The gurgling sounds that you hear are likely the drain pump running and the un-drainable water sloshing in the sump.

Verify that there is actually water going to the dishwasher( Basic step but often overlooked)

Next the inlet valve will have to be checked. This is the part where the water line from the house connects to the dishwasher, under the toe/kick panel. Remove power from the dishwasher. Disconnect the dishwasher electrical connections (2 wires) to the inlet valve and connect it (carefully to 110 V power) using a jumper wire. With 110V power the valve should open and water will flow into the dishwasher, if not then the fault is in the inlet valve.

If this checks fine then the fault is likely in the aqua sensor...

On the outer left side (viewed from front) there is a panel, Behind this panel there is a small clear(of light blue) plastic mechanism with hoses and wires attached( There is usually a yellow disk at the top about 6cm in diameter) this is a float and sensor assembly there is tells the control the water level and works as an emergency drain if there is an issue. There will be a red stick protruding downward to the base and a Styrofoam float on which the stick rests. This is a pan overflow sensor if the stick is too high the unit will go into drain and cut off the fill valve power. The yellow disk is a diaphragm which senses water height. This unit can become stuck with wear and hard water.

My dishwasher suddenly won't wash hot on either the normal auto setting nor the eco one.


Do you find water left in the dishwasher bottom at cycle end???? It sound like your drain line is partially or completely blocked or possibly a bad drain pump depending on model. If it can't drain completely it can't refill with hot water. That will also explain an increase in the cycle time. Some dishwasher add time because it is trying to heat the water up. Its a loosing battle if the water isn't partially hot to begin with.

Hi, my D3120 Asko dishwasher starts but stops after about a minute. If I press the start button again, it starts but stops again. What's wrong?


When it shuts off, is there still water standing in it? First, you need to know if it stops because the pump (that pumps OUT the water) is working. When it stops, do you hear the water draining? ...(through your sink drain). Many times the tube that pumps out the water is clogged from food matter stuck in the drain tube. If you had a disposal put in recently, there is a plug that has to come OUT of the disposal to hook up the dishwasher drain.

Dishwasher motor starts and stops


Hey Bill,
Not professing to be any kind of a dishwasher repairman but I have had a similar issue with the start and stop thing and it turned out to be the timer motor had started to go, and in going it 'burned' a couple of sets of the contacts as well. Check with a local appliance repair centre and see first if they agree with me, and if they have anyone who can rebuild the timer - Typically not too hard to get access to and remove - In my case in Canada, it had to go to Toronto pre-paid but $70 was cheaper then a new dishwasher and it's worked great for years

Baumatic b15 drain pump will not stop.


Sounds like a dicky or jammed water level sensor. Get a qualified and licensed technician to check it out. The sensor and labour to replace it should only be around AU$50 or AU$60 dollars (excluding callout or pickup / delivery fees).

Dishwasher starts then pauses and drains.


Fixed! I had the issue where the cycle would start, the KUDS30IXBL8 would hum 4-5 times and then drain. Plastic folk pieces jammed in the disposer. These instructions took a few minutes (only 5 screws and a couple clips) to figure out how to take it apart, and it only took 60 seconds to put back together.

Hello, LG LD 14AT1 dishwasher, starts cycle runs 3 minutes, starts stops on off no water in bottom. Then displays OE chimes! Checked tap under sink water there, checked filter inside bottom, turned off for...


Hi

OE in your dishwasher is a drain error and dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. If the issue returns after cleaning then the drain pump assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Dishwasher starts running for 2 minutes then stops


The first 2 minutes of the cycle is a pump out cycle followed by a brief pause then a water fill cycle.Make sure the water is getting to the water valve underneath. Check the water valve for power with a volt meter just after the pump out cycle. No power= bad timer or bad wire. Power = a bad water valve or no water present.

Zanussi ZDT6252 stops 1min into cycle


You need to reset the computer on the bottom. Had the same problem with mine. The Blinking led means the heating element is bad and will not operate.
