Water collects in dishwasher tub


I believe there is a float on the affluent pump like a sump pump that could get hung up maybe some food particles or something built up underneath it and not allow the water to go all the way down.

GE dishwasher leaks in middle - bottom - what part do I need


you would need to replace the sump or rather the sump gasket but they dont usually sell the sump gasket without u buying a new sump and most of the time you pay more for just the sump then if you were to buy the sump and motor together as a kit you can find the parts at marcone appliance parts and they will mail you the parts directly before ordering the sump make sure you check the drain pump also it is located in the same area but when you usually have a leak it comes from the sump or the sump gasket but you'll have t crawl under and visually inspect where your leak is coming from please remember to rank this opinion on how it helped with your appliance situation and if i can answeer any further questions please message me back thanks again

My kitchenaid fills with water just fine and drains just fine; however when I run it it makes this horrible buzzing/grinding sound. Could it be the food grinder or the pump? How do I clear the grinder to...


You need to remove the lower spray arm, then the water volute that runs up the back needs to get disconnected by removing it from its rear clip (center of tub almost behind upper rack, next twist volute connector clockwise until you can pull the connector and upper supply volute tube apart. Remove connector from top of pump and then remove 5? torx screws to remove top of pump (filter plate) then look inside front section of pump sump area and locate two more torx screws to remove (on right) first sump inlet cover. The screw on the left is for the macerator (grinder assembly) cover. Pull straight up on the cover to expose the chopper assembly. Try not to disturb the chopper screen from it's location as it connects to the pump impellar shaft and is difficult to re-install. Clean any and all debris from the now open areas and re- assemble the pump.
Good luck!

Dishwasher does not clean


The most common reason for not cleaning well on your model is debris in the sump area of the pump. I have put some instructions on cleaning this out. Follow the link below and let me know if it was helpful.

Kitchenaid KUDS01FL -Dishwasher - "clean" light wont stop flashing; cant start a new load


Hi,

The clean light usually will blink due to a failure to heat the water properly. This dishwasher looks for a temperature rise of the water during a heating cycle if it fails to see this rise for multiple cycles it may shut down and blink the clean light.
There are a few things to check before resetting the control.
-The unit not being level so both door switches do not make contact
- The sump plugged up so water is not pumping across the heater (see sump clean out below)
- Not enough water filling the dishwasher
- The heat element is not working
To reset the control use this key dance within 5 seconds press: HEATED DRY, NORMAL, HEATED DRY, NORMAL
This will cause you to enter the diagnosis cycle once this is finished or you hit cancel the control should be unlocked and ready to use.

Thank you !

Weak water pressure particularly in the upper spinning water arm. Never a good cleaning machine again in the upper half of the dishwasher. My other kitchenaid never had this problem...


Hi,

This sounds like debris got into the sump area of the pump. I have created a set of instructions on how to clean out. If you are up for it, follow the link below and let me know if it helped.

KitchenAid Dishwasher (model KUDS01IJBL) has black gunk inside


That black gunk is caused by soap deposits and food particles that do not get washed down the drain. This all collects in the area around the door gasket and front of the wash tub and forms a sticky black sludge. You need to periodically clean the interior of the dishwasher out with a non-abrasive cleaner with some bleach in it to kill bacteria. You should also check the wash pump sump (located under the lower spray arm) to make sure it is not being clogged with food and debris. In order to access the pump sump, you will need to perform the following:

1. Remove the lower wash rack and lower spray arm.

2. Remove the upper wash rack and spray arm.

3. Locate the screws holding in the upper spray feed tube. Remove the screws to the feed tube and turn the whole assembly 1/4 turn to the right (CW direction). The entire assembly will unlock from the wash pump assembly and lift out.

4. Remove the strainer assembly (known as an accumulator) that covers the pump sump area.

Inspect the sump area for food particles and debris that may be contributing to the mess inside the wash tub. If you need some guidance, pcappliancerepair.com has some very helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you.

If you have any questions, or require further assistance, please let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.

Kitchenaid Whisper Quiet + dishwasher making loud humming noise


Very likely pump motor shaft seal leaks water into bearing casing buildup of rust and consequently noise. I just replaced $112 worth of pump assy and it's back to normal. I would also buy repair manual for $10 on-line to be sure how to disassemble the sump to get to the pump.
