Question about KitchenAid KUDS30FXPA - KitchenAidR SuperbaR Series Dishwasher
Hello, My problem is as follows: I choose Normal Wash, Heat Dry, Click Start, and close the door. I will hear a motor hum, a few clicks, then the dishwasher drains and cancels. I have tried the reset control panel, all the lights came up, and after 5 seconds I hit cancel. Tried the normal wash cycle again and see the same issue.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

about the only thing to try would be to remove the inner door panel to get to the control bd then you will see a mylar ribbon looks like a fat piece of scotch tape pull up on the plastic connector that holds it in and pull the ribbon out then get a clean pencil eraser and gently clean the ribbon and put it back in dont forget to push the locking tab back down then try it again and let me know

If light is blinking then it may be an
issue with heater circuit, door switch or the thermal fuse, 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 or High Temp Wash-Heated Dry-High Temp Wash-Heated 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 thermal fuse located on the control or the door switch that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post
back if you need more information.

If clean light is blinking 7 times then it may be an issue
with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump. If yes then please reset the power
to the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same

pressing this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High

Temp Scrub, energy saver dry. Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and

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 if you need more
