Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI01FLSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

I have a Kitchen AId dishwasher (8573025) and it is leaking about mid-cycle. I can't tell where (in terms of front, back, or side) the leak is originating. Any guesses?

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 catriver1@gmail.com Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: Kitchen Aid dishwasher is not cleaning like it use to

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.

SOURCE: KitchenAid dishwasher allows water to drain while washing

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.

It will not drain or fill. Why is it leaking under right corner but not from the door?


Hello. You will have to remove the kick panel to exposed the workings underneath the unit. Water takes the path of least resistance and it could be coming from anywhere. The float switch is located on the right side near the front. The seal could be leaking. There are hoses to the drain pump, main pump, etc...You will need a flashlight to look closely as to what is actually leaking--have towels and especially a wet/dry vac ready(no home should be without one!) If you can isolate the leak, I can provide more assistance with exploded diagrams and/or part numbers. I hope I helped you!

The new dishwasher kitchen aid we bought is leaking


If it is leaking from the front, then there is a problem with the seal that runs around the front of the dishwasher. It is usually located behind the main door on the edges of the unit itself, it will look similar to weather stripping. A cheap way of fixing this is to get real good weather stripping from Wal-Mart, Home Depot, Lowes, etc. It will have a sticky surface on one side, you peel off the paper, then apply the weather stripping to the actaul door, first try to mark where the old one sits against it.If its leaking from underneath, than it can be a number of things, but most are easy to repair, you just have to pull the dishwasher completely out to get a better look. Sometimes one of the components will be leaking, but for the most part, it might just need a new hose clamp or tightened up. Hope this helps.

Tilt your washer forwards. Water will leak from the front but once this has cleared your dishwasher should be ok again. I paid an engineer to come and tell me this. If your dishwasher is not completely level this can sometimes happen. Hope this helps.

Leaking dishwasher


Are you washing cereal bowls or mixing bowls on the bottom rack? If so, are you placing them in front? Sudden leaks that form huge puddles can often be attributed to improper loading of the dishwasher. Most dishwashers don't have a seal across the tub front. The door closes over it and does a pretty good job of deflecting water back inside the wash cavity. However, if you place bowls in the front on the bottom rack rack they can divert the water right over the tub lip and onto the floor. This is usually the culprit that causes most leaks in dishwashers. Now, if you don't think you have a loading problem, remove the kick panel on the bottom of the dishwasher and check the drain line and pump housing for leaks. Check the door gasket for tears or cracks. Lastly, feel inside the bottom of the door with your hand. You should be able to feel the door insulation. If it is wet, then the problem could be a leak around your soap or rinse-aid dispenser. Depending on the model, some dispensers are mounted to the door with a gasket behind it. Sometimes this gasket can form leaks. I hope this helps.
