Question about KitchenAid KUDS30IXSS Builtin Dishwasher

1 Answer

Dishwasher rack falls off

This is a nice dishwasher with a stainless interior, however the top rack roller supports are made of plastic. These are the supports that are on the top rack, and what happens is that one of the catches breaks off, then the roller is free to dislodge from the rack entirely. What happens is that the rack is then free to fall, and if it happens on one side then the weight of the trey can take out the support on the other side. Lots of people have this problem with the dishwashers with model KUDS30. There should be a new part created by kitchen aid which is not susceptable to easy breakage. Lots of people see this part break between 1 and 3 years into the life of the dishwasher. Here is an image showing the rack with one of the rollers that came off. The roller is not lost, it just stays in the track and allows the tray to fall (hang loose) only supported by the back rollers. http://i.imgur.com/Md3YjNz.jpg

Could it be that KitchenAid wants you to replace the entire rack? Check with a local appliance parts supplier if you can because the roller must be a hot replacement item.

SOURCE: kitchen aid dishwasher not cleaning dishes well.

sounds like you have a broken chopper. have you checked the chopper how far have you taken it apart? if the unit is put back together point all wash arms in the same direction turn the dishwasher on after it has started washing give it about 2-3 minutes open the door and see what wash arm is not moveing. if the upper wash arm is not moveing you need to check the chopper.

SOURCE: none of the lights work on control panel,

Check the power source to the machine.

If all power connections to and within the machine are O.K. then, it is most likely your door switch or worst case, the control board.

Best to get a technician to diagnose the problem.

SOURCE: TOP SPIN ARM NOT SPINNING TO CLEAN TOP RACK

Hi.

First ensure that the arm is not getting stuck, and check that the orifices are free.

When the top arm is not spinning you may need to replace pump and motor assembly. First it is good looking for blockage in pump hose.

If the appliance is less than two year old, then it may be covered by limited warranty. Call Kitchenaid at the number listed in the owners manual to verify your warranty status.

Regards.

SOURCE: Want to replace dishwasher panel with stainless steel

Yes indeed! If you know the measurements, you can buy a stainless panel from www.applianceart.com cut to any size you would like. THey also have a cheaper "faux" stainless option too. Many colors and designs as well.

How do i replace guide support on top rack as wheels keep falling off


I would check with the repair depot and get the parts that you need. I am unfamiliar with this unit itself. If the unit holding the wheels on is broken, perhaps a plastic screwnail would hold it on.

Top roller screw hole stripped


1)make certain all is clean and very dry
2)apply gorilla glue into stripped plastic hole and insert screw.
3)rig something up to keep it from moving for 6 hours or so

careful gorilla has a nasty habbit of pretty much destroying clothes and staining skin so be carefull. don't get carried away when applying it and maybe set down a disposable rag to catch drips.
but it is very permanent. Its what I would do

good luck

The slide on the upper basket keeps falling out. It's been fixed twice but doesn't hold. The second repair man who put the slide back in the rollers said he couldn't see anything wrong with it, but it...


One option is installing stainless steel washers on the rack supports that screw into the side of the tub. The rack falls down because there is too much "slop" with the rack...a couple small washers to space them tighter normally does the trick.

I can't put back the top dishwasher rack. The railing does not seem to hold it, even though there is no damage in the railing. The top rack could not be held by the rollers


There should be plastic stops at either end of the rail that prevent the rollers of the rack from coming out of either end.

2 upper rack rollers cracked in Maytag #MDB7600AWS - cant find simple replacement rollers for inside track - 1 1/4" - of upper rack.


JP Weld works great on repairing these junky Maytag parts. Note that they don't have a replacement for these upper wheels and a guy is selling expensive stainless steel replacements. The round connector broke off of ours that holds the wheel to the rack. My wife found a plastic button that fit within the space and we glued it with JP Weld epoxy (water and temperature resistant). 10 washes later, still working great! I expect it will "heal" any other plastic parts. NEVER will I buy a Maytag again!

My viking dishwasher does not rinse the soap scum off the dishes


Maybe . . . remove the lower rack and invert it. Look for cracked or missing plastic coating, exposed, rusted & possibly "swollen" inner steel rod/wire. If found, remove the upper rack and look for more of the same. What you think is "soap scum" is probably rust and other iron compounds leached by the dish soap out of the rusted steel onto the dishes and the dishwasher interior. The following worked for me . . .

To clean the interior (with both racks removed), set to "No Heat" dry, then "Pot & Pan" wash and allow to fill. Open door, dump in a bottle of "Lime A-Way", close & latch door and allow to complete cycle. This should remove most rust and iron-sulphate deposits from interior. If not, scrub them with Lime A-Way and a ScotchBrite pad, then cycle again.

Racks must be replaced (Viking are very expensive, Asko, Bosch, or other lower racks may fit: check your neighbors' racks for fit), upper rack must be Viking unless you can exact-match the Asko or Bosch equivalent.

Possible fix: remove the loose plastic coating and flaking rust with a knife, ruff plastic coating with ScotchBrite, clean with rubbing alcohol, then treat metal/rust with "rust converter" (hardware or home imp store), wash with soapy water, rinse, then clean with rubbing alcohol, dry fully, coat with "high temp" (orange or yellow) silicone sealant (auto part store), covering exposed metal and a half inch or so over the plastic coating. Let set for a day or two.

A trip through the dishwasher for all your stained stainless, glasses and non-metallic coated or non-metallic decorated dishes with Lime A-Way as above (on new or "rebuilt" racks) should get the metallic scum and rust off them.

Broken rollers inside top rack slides


We got rollers recently from Johnstone Supply, 501 Third Avenue, South, Nashville, TN telephone 615-259-3440 or 254-0702. I don't know the cost, but I'm pretty sure it was not $72. I suggest that you have the model #.
I am planning to buy some for another dishwasher at the moment.
