Switches on kitchen aid refrigerator dispensers not working.. ice maker is working, but will not dispense ice or water


Sounds like the water has been turned off, or the solenoid valve (located at water entrance to fridge) has failed. you should hear a solid snap from that solenoid when water is called for by pressing the dispensing switch. You can test the solenoid by unplugging the fridge and measure the resistance across the solenoid terminals. If it measures 200-500 ohms it is ok. if it measures open the solenoid has failed and needs to be replaced.

Upper spray arm on my Kitchen Aid dishwasher (8573025) doesn't work.


Arm operates(turns) by water pressure. If it does not turn no water is going to the top spray arm. make sure the setting washer is on does not preclude the top spray arm from operating(read manual). If not check arm by spinning by hand to make sure it is free. If arm is free and it still does not turn when DW is running than there is a restriction in the tubing to the upper spray arm or the check ball or solenoid are not operating correctly.

My Kitchen Aid clothes washer is leaking water from the bottom.


HI couple things to check, water hoses coming into washer, tip the washer back and look underneath and see if you can see where its coming from, most common leak on this one is the drain pump which is located right on the front of the motor, if you tip the washer back its a plastic pump with 2 big hoses going into it, they usually crack and leak water from there. They are only about $30.00 to buy.

Kitchen Aid Model KUDT03FTSS2 -- no water getting into dishwasher. I have no idea what to check to see if there is a clog somewhere.


Make sure the water tap into the sink hot water plumbing has not been turned off. Check the routing of the water line which feeds the washer to look for kinks somewhere. The inlet water solenoid in the washer base may have failed--if no click when water should go in, suspect the solenoid. It is a fairly simple thing to replace. The last suspect would be a failure of part of the control system that signals the inlet solenoid. Hope this helps!

My 6 yr old Kitchen Aid dishwasher is leaving food residue


After checking all sprayer arms for clearance, and checking heating element and discharge pump, the problem was solved by replacing the small sprayer arm at the top of the washer. This small arm had popped off some time ago - obviously the water pressure was excessive for the small and unimpressive fastener. Luckily we had saved this piece, which I refastened with a strong aluminum non-corroding small bolt. Presto - now the water distribution is back to design specs, with sufficient water coming out under pressure from the mid level arm. Lesson: always look for the simplest cause first with the simplest solution. TCA
