Question about KitchenAid KUDE70FXSS Builtin Dishwasher
My kude70fxss2 dishwasher leaked water all over floor. Tech came out and replaced a clamp to the motor. The dishwashe worked two times and now when I tried to run it the green clean light blinks four times and the controls are locked. Any ideas? I read that there is a problem with this clamp and sometimes water gets into the motor when it fails, and then the motor needs to be replaced as well. Apparently this pump clamp failure is common and there was a service bulletin issued but no recall. Do you think the motor needs to be replaced? Any ideas on what the problem could be?
I would start by calling that Technician back out. If it is a common problem with your model, did the technician inform you of that when he was there last? Did he even mention the POSSIBILITY that the pump might have water in it and may need to be replaced?
If not, I'd want to know why not. This sounds like something he should have been aware of and checked for, especially if he was a Kitchen Aid appliance service technician. That's the way a "handyman" might do something, but not a certified repairman.

Slow fill of water is due to the strainer clogging. Strainer is located on the body of the machine where the inlet water hose is connected.
Clean all the water flow tubes in the machine.Clean the solenoid valve opening also.

You have to remove the sprayer arm, it's cover, and the cover underneath that located on the bottom of the dishwasher, inside the dishwasher. If you find a large amount of grease/food under these covers then you are not rinsing your dishes enough before placing in the washer.
The disposal unit in these units are nothing more than a cheap metal blade spinning over a metal grate. Anything tougher than a piece of cake and it's frosting runs the risk of breaking the gears that drives this.
Clean all the food/grease that you can access. Be careful while removing the gunk, I have found glass shards from broken dishes. Locate the disposal impeller and screen. It can be removed. Inspect it for damage and reinstall after cleaning.
Your water flow can be restricted if this is plugged.

This machine was made by Whirlpool and the flashing clean light is a common error code for them.
If the clean light is the one flashing then your dishawasher could have a heater circuit problem (depending on the age) or this could simply just be water colder than it is used to getting.
Repeatedly press the Heated Dry and Hi-Temp Wash(scrub) which ever yours has untill all the LED lights come on, press cancel twice and try the dishwasher again making sure to run the water at the kitchen sink till it is hot before starting the dishwasher, if this trips and locks you have a problem with the heating element, or temp sensor.
Press the heated dry button followed by the normal cycle button, and then repeat once. You should see all of the lights come on for a second or two, and then the dishwasher will work again.
If you haven't already, take a look under the kick plate in front to see if there is a schematic tucked in there somewhere. Whirlpool has put their diagnostics for specific models on these.
I don't have the specific repair manual for you model.
So, if the above combination does not work here are two more that have worked for me.
HiTemp Wash + Air Dry + HiTemp Wash + Air Dry in less than 5 sec
Hi Temp Scrub/Scour + Air Dry + Hi Temp Scrub/Scour + Air Dry in less than 5 sec
Let me know, if you need further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

If clean light is blinking indicates an issue with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump. To resolve this please reset the power to the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error. If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry, Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry. Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button and allow it to completely drain and reset.
If this doesn't work then it's an issue with the wash pump not pumping the water past the heater efficiently or due to lack of water to heat. Please make sure that heater is not open circuited and is heating the water efficiently. You'll have to check the heater using a multimeter; the meter should read between 3000 to 3300 ohms (Use multimeter on Rx1 ohm setting). If heater is fine then make sure water pressure is optimum and fill valve is working fine. Hope this helps... Please post back for further assistance.
