SOURCE: Where can I buy the cable repair kit for my Kitchenaid dishwasher

OK, pretty easy fix. Look at diagram 10 here: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5164885

The link (#24) probably broke and the spring (#18) probably shot off and is lying somewhere behind the dishwasher. Just pull out the dishwasher (careful not to disconnect or crimp any of the hoses) and check to see if both springs (one on each side) can be located. Just replace the old links and re-hook the springs and all should be well.

You can order the link replacement (part #8194001) from kitchenaid at 1-800-422-1230.

SOURCE: KitchenAid dishwasher soap door won't open

I took the door apart and found the degertent door solinoid looking like it over heated and melted to the cover flap and the insulation. See picture. I can't post pic as the max is 150kb.
I applied power and it only got hot and wouldn't operate.
Next I go to Kitchenaid for a replacement - FREE it should be.

SOURCE: Kitchenaid dishwasher leaking from door

Check the screws on the pump cover under the lower spray arm (the spray arm is easy to remove, the screws are torx - maybe a torx 10 or 15, so a regular screwdriver wont work). They come loose on ours every 6-12 months and spray water at the door, causing it to leak all over our wood floor. I routinely tighten those screws now before they come loose enough to cause the problem.

SOURCE: KITCHENAID DISHWASHER DOOR PANEL

www.applianceart.com has many options for you to choose from. They sell many different panels to put on your dishwasher. If you call them (678-727-4747 x32) they can also send you a metal stainless plate that is easily installed. I think the metal ones are around $99.99 and the other options are $39.99

Kitchenaid dishwasher KUDS30IXBL door locked open, will not close


There should be a type of hook inside the hole where the door latches to the machine. Hold the handle up and rotate the hook latch so the open side is pointing towards the machine. The click you heard was the latch that holds the door closed moving to the closed position when the door was open, and it needs to be in the release position.

Less that 2 yrs old..door wont latch. As a consequence machine won't start.


It is possible the door latch is faulty or the springs at base of dishwasher are soft and need adjusting. the springs keep the door in position. refer this site for parts.

My KitchenAid Dishwasher door won't stay closed. It keeps popping open after a few seconds.


I experienced the same problem after my tension cables broke. The door fell open with such force that it bent the hinges a little. If you've replaced the tension strings (which you should do every 5-8 years) then you don't have to replace the latch. I did and it didn't solve the problem.
Here's the solution:
Put a towel at the bottom of each side of the door by the hinge.
Push the door closed a couple of times to bend back the hinges.
Remove the towels and you're back in action.
Good luck

How to start kitchenaid dishwasher


1-confirm power make sure breaker is not tripped or fuse is good and no tripped GFI's (no power obviously it won't work) 2-confirm water is on (the timer has a delay that it powers down during it's wait for the unit to fill with water 3-make sure the door is fully closed and latched properly (the door has a safety interlock to prevent the dishwasher from operating while the door is open -- think water sprayed everywhere) 4- beyond this if it is a new install and has never worked call your installer back

Kitchenaid kudi01ilwh2 won't start


By won't start do you mean that everything is set ok but when you press Start button then nothing happens.

In that case most likely the door is not sitting properly or the door latch or door switch is faulty causing the dishwasher to not start.

However, if nothing happens on the panel when you press buttons but power is there, then most likely the panel is faulty and can be replaced.

you can trace the parts in these diagrams.

I replaced door gasket on kitchenaid dishwasher and now door won't stay closed.


Hope your replaced gasket is identical with the old one! ie dimensions, especially thickness

If so try aligning gasket uniformly over the machine body.

Kitchenaid Dishwasher keeps opening during cycle


Check to make sure that the legs are not adjusted too far up. This will push the dishwasher up so that it hits the bottom of your countertop and may not allow the dishwasher to close completely. The motion of the dishwasher may cause the door to reopen.
