Question about KitchenAid KUDS01DJ - Multiple Color Dishwasher
Two questions. Need to remove vent assembly on this DW so I can clean it. Would like to clean and reinstall rather than replace.
2nd - spring came out from handle assembly when I removed front panel. Not quite sure where it should be reattached.

Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

yea but the trick is the latch acces is behind console not the front panel, you need to unistall the d/w slightly to remove strike plate holding broken latch closed, door needs to be opened to gain access to console screws

The latch needs to be replaced. Kitchen Aid has made two updates to this latch. I.E. 2-revised latches. I just replacd the latch assembly and the dishwasher works fine now. Do a search for kitchen aid repair parts online and hav them shipped to your home. The repair takes five minutes. Un-screw all torx bit screws on door and the latch is under neath. One electrical dip switch held on by another screw and a two prong tab to undo the old latch. This seriously took me five minutes to repair and the parts were $40.00 online shipped.
Hope his helps.

Generally the food grinder is just a small piece of wire looking material that sits behind a screen and grinds the smallest particles that get through..and try to grind down any larger pieces that happen to get through and those that don't generally clog the screen up. To remove and clean this assembly you will have to remove both dish racks (for work room) and then the sprayer arm which may unscrew from the top of the motor cover assembly....and then there are a series of screws, (may be hex head screws) that encircle the assembly...remove those and you will have a clear view of the entire assembly...a shop vac will come in handy as there will probably be water standing in the bottom...you should be able to see the screen and the little wire arm extension that acts as the grinder(if that's what they are using in your model) you should see a nut or screw that holds the screen in place...but you may not have to remove it if you can get to easily and vacuum out the food particles or clean it with an old toothbrush or something of the sort...I used to just clean them by rubbing the end of my flat head screwdriver over the face of the screen and thereby breaking up any lodged particles.
I hope this helps...please let me know by rating me...thank you ...The Fang

Replaced handle/latch unit. Killed power to the unit. Removed the inside door panel then unplugged the two switches on the latch. Removed old latch with broken handle (removing inside panel frees latch/handle). Installed new latch with handle reconnected the two switches, reinstalled inside door panel. Very simple. Note: Latches can be purchased with or without the handle. Less expensive to buy with the handle already installed on the latch.
