Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI01FLSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
This machine is about 5 years old, and I can't afford a professional right now. Sure would appreciate any tips. (It doesn't seem to be leaking during the final drain, but I can't be sure....) Thanks!

Tom, three things you want to check. 1. the heating element. Remove the leads from the element and ohm it out. Should read between 11 and 31 ohms. 2. Check the high limit thermostat. This sits right behind the drain pump on the right and inserts into the tub housing. Remove the leads and check for continuity. 3. The vent wax motor is inoperable. Check for continuity on the wax motor terminals. You can also put the dishwasher into a service mode to check the operation. In this sequence press high temp scub-energy saver dry-high temp scrub-energy saving dry. This will put it into a auto test mode. Let it do it's thing. If you need any further details, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Catriver..post back.

Check the following to address this issue further.
1. No water
Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.
2. Not enough water
If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).
3. Clogged spay arms
There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.
4. Water temperature is too low
To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.
5. Not enough soap
If you only fill one part of the soap cup, try adding soap to both parts.
6. Smoky film on dishes and glasses
This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside the dishwasher. Try cleaning you dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner. There are a few out there.

Your dishwasher is siphoning the water out. The drain hose should turn upward, nearly to the bottom side of the counter top, before it attaches to the drain or disposal. If it has an independant drain it still needs the rise and also needs an air break to stop the siphoning.
