SOURCE: Replacing a drain hose

If you remove the steel left side panel you can see that the drain hose only extends a short way into the machine. Where the hose enters the pan is a white clip that has a small square hole this clip can either be removed by pushing on it from the inside or prying the small square hole with a screwdriver. the drain hose is held in place by a black triangular clip on the plastic drain loop simply pull the clip off and slide the drain hose down then pull it out from the back of the machine.

the element will be housed in a plastic manifold that is located at the centre rear of the d/w base. you may have a resetable thermostat on the top so give it a try first.

If your dishwasher leaks, check these: Main tub seal Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:

  • Lower rack

  • Spray arm

  • Spray arm support

  • Wash/drain impellers

Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.

Door gasket or seal Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak. 

Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

Dishwasher does not start only beeping all the time

I don't know it will work for you, but I went to the breaker an switched it off in my panel. Make sure you switch off the line your machine is on. Wait 30 seconds an switch it back on. Repair man told me to try it, because sometimes voltage spikes cause electronics to go weird.

The rinse aid is leaking out of my 1 yr old KD12WW1 dishwasher. Sometimes after only one wash it is completely depleted

Hello Dorothy Grieve,

My favorite site (appliancepartspros) is NOT showing
your model number...

Here (usa) the dispenser is about $50 to $60 to purchase.

I am thinking if you search for SPARES... with your
model number... you might have better success.

KD12WW1... rinse aid (not found)...
Kelvinator KD12WW1 91123003500 Dishwasher Rinse Aids

Lots of fun...
but the site needs some work to show all the "SPARES"

Use their number (Call Now 0844 49991110)...

I have just reeived a Kelvinator dishwasher KD12WW. I have only a cold water outlet can I still wash with it

I found a site that is important for you to down load the site is
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

I have a Kelvinator KD12WW1 dishwasher and the bottom rack does not get cleaned. Please advise me on how to check what is wrong.

It's possible, but check to make sure a knife or fork or something is not sticking down below the lower rack and stopping the arm from turning. Turn the lower wash arm with your hand to make sure nothing is caught in there. A stuck float would probably not let the unit fill or drain properly.

I've got a Kelvinator dishwasher KD12MM bought second hand, the machine goes on but does not pump water. Please help

Possible that the pump has clogged or is jammed with dirt. you will need to remove the pump and clean the pump assembly for a good spray pressure. If this wont work then the pump is faulty and needs to be replaced.Check this link for tips:

Dishwasher wont drain

First check that the outlet hose is not obstructed or blocked in any way. The outlet pump motor is inline with the outlet hose and has 2 electrical push on connectors. The motor must spin in outlet mode and can be checked by testing to see if supply voltage is across the 2 connectors in outlet mode. If voltage present and motor does not spin = motor open circuit and needs replacing (easy job). The impeler (inside motor must spin to pump out water). No voltage across 2 terminals will indicate a switching fault and can be the electronic timer.

It's look like a water level switch issue. The switch level is usually a diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. I am not familiar with this specific machine, but if you will open the rear panel you should find it easily. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or to replace the switch. Good luck !
