Re: kitchenaid dishwasher just quit mid cycle?

Check your thermal fuse. The fuse is located inside the control panel on or near the main control board. It will be a bullet shaped component mounted with a white plastic clip with two wires leading from it. The fuse should read a short if good. Now...keep in mind, if the fuse blew it is usually for a reason. Replacing it may or may not correct your problem. In some model dishwashers there was a thermal fuse kit that was required to be installed which involved cutting the wires and using a wire splice to connect the new fuse. It seems that there was a design flaw where the gauge wire used in manufacturing would cause the thermal fuse to blow prematurely due the wire overheating. I can't remember if this applies to KitchenAid, but I believe it does. You may inquire about this at your local parts store. I hope this helps you.

I had the same issue. What I did that has resolved the fuse problem was pull out the unit and disconnect the power to the heating element at the bottom of the machine. Just pull it out, flip it on its side and you will see the connections to the element on the bottom. It's been running for months now with no issues.

Dishwasher stopping mid-cycle, water left in bottom, sometimes detergent dispenser does not open.

Man I love posts like yours. Makes answering easier.

In short, yes. You probably are right that the dishwasher is aborting mid-cycle, but the why is a tricky question. There are wet parts inside as well as moving parts and high temperature. It is possible your control electronics are being exposed to moisture mid-cycle, causing the dishwasher to cut out. This would have been easy to spot by the technician though. An alternate theory could be that the dishwasher's door sensor is stating that the dishwasher gets opened mid cycle due to all the shaking around. This wouldn't have been picked up by your technician and would cause the dishwasher to effectively "pause" itself without draining or using soap. Check and make sure the door is latched securely and see if it's easy to trigger the door sensor (pull gently on the door while the dishwasher is running).

Unfortunately, the best answer I have for investigation is to "babysit." Grab your laptop, pop in a movie, get a nice drink, and plop yourself down next to the dishwasher once you set it to run. The moment it stops working properly, take a look at everything you can.

Kitchen aid dishwasher stopped mid-cycle and won't drain. Can't re-start. Suspect clogged drain.

KitchenAid KUDS30FXSS Dishwasher won't complete cycle

Press the Cancel/ Drain cycle for a few seconds. The dishwasher should reset itself. See if this makes any difference. Also first turn the mains power to dishwasher off and back on.

Shuts off mid cycle

it is likely the heater or thermostat are faulty. Try to run in short cycle like rinse which works on cold water.

The start button on my KItchen Aid Built in Dishwasher KUDI01FLSS2 will not start, there is power and the control lock is not on. It just will not start

I had the same problem although my dishwasher quit working in mid cycle. Once it quit, there was no power to the unit. I replaced the thermal coupling fuse and that solved the problem.

Stopped midcycle, water not drained, no lights, no reset, input power good


The most probable thing wrong that made your dishwasher just quit mid cycle and wont now do anything is going to be a blown fuse on the control board. It's a fairly common problem with that brand,so much so i have written a tip about how to check it. Here is the link to that tip,

Bosch dishwasher shx55m with bottom tub full of water

The dishwasher really shouldn't pass any particles near large enough to clog the drain hose. It sounds more like a mechanical issue. Check the circuit breaker to make sure it's not tripped. See if you can hit a cancel button or something to make it drain. Try to run another cycle. If the computer is stuck or acting funny, trying cutting the power for a while, holding down a stop/reset/cancel button, or running a cycle that you don't usually run. I had this kitchenaid that would randomly refuse the normal wash cycle, but would run fine when you ran rinse only or something, then regular wash and everything would be fine again too. If the line somehow is clogged, there's a good chance it's right where the hose connects to the disposal or drain pipe.
