Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Why isn't the Machine pumping out all the water inbetween cycles?

Kitchen aid - Dishwasher Started having problem with normal washing it woulnt't pump out the water till the end, and later flood below the moving panel inside the dishwasher. there is no leak; pump motor works fine : drain hose isn't blocked - WE changed the rotor, and it didn't resolve the problem. looks like in middle of cycles water isn't pumping out. Next cycle adds more water; This results in bucket overfilling. earlier this problem only occurred on normal wash cycle; the rest cycles such as china, heavy, and quick pumped out the water normally as intended; and NOW on any cycle we have manually push reset to only pump out water. PS.We noticed when this problem occurs the lower tub isn't raised to a locked position, so when the signal for error begins to warn us, the machine is easily swung open, indicating that it might not be even raised.

Check the float in the bottom of washer to make sure it is moving up and down all the way and not hanging up causing the water to overfill

Pump running continuously, Yes there was a drain pack, have emptied water, float switch clicks when moved with screw driver. Only one red light shows ( last cycle - pots ) what else can I do... James


What type of dishwasher do you have? Has your kitchen floor flooded? If it has. The tray under dish washer isn't water tight. Moisture creates some unusual problems. Some of newer dish washer the there control panel under the top of door this also create problem especially if the switches are on the top of the door. Another moisture problem. I have repaired a new Electrolux dish was three times in less than 6 months. The floor would flood from the Maytag side load washing machine. The Madam of the house didn't tell me that the washing machine flooded the kitchen floor. No window in the door and sometime fill water solenoid would stick and fill the tube. When they open washing machine door, 12 gallons of water would spill. So I fix both of them. GB...stewbison

The wash light and the start/cancel button keep flashing. How do I fix it? I have a Kitchen Aide dishwasher model KUDS02FR


Hi,


The clean light usually will blink due to a failure to heat the water properly. This dishwasher looks for a temperature rise of the water during a heating cycle if it fails to see this rise for multiple cycles it may shut down and blink the clean light.
There are a few things to check before resetting the control.

-The unit not being level so both door switches do not make contact
-
The sump plugged up so water is not pumping across the heater (see sump clean out below)


- Not enough water filling the dishwasher


- The heat element is not working


To reset the control use this key dance within 5 seconds press:HEATED DRY, NORMAL, HEATED DRY, NORMAL
This will cause you to enter the diagnosis cycle once this is finished or you hit cancel the control should be unlocked and ready to use.


Thank you !

Dishes are not always dry, even after sitting overnight


hi

make sure you are using rinse aid as this helps to evaporate the water at the end of the cycle in the drying stage. I know tablets have rinse aid built into the tablet but this can wash away on some wash cycles and do nothing so even if you are using tablets i reccommend still using rinse aid.

My Kitchen Aid dishwasher runs for about 2 hours. Is this normal


It depends on your water pressure. Mine runs a cycle in about 25 minutes, with 92 psi water pressure. Before changing all the pipes in my house, I had about 30 psi and it took about 45 minutes. The longer it takes to fill, the longer it takes to do a wash.

Bosch slimline dishwasher flooded kitchen


Your debris filter needs to be cleaned. It is found under the dry bar in the bottom of the tub. It looks like a plastic mesh and you can usually remove it to wash it out if not use an old toothbrush etc... this should help.

Dishwasher not pumping water


anti flood mechanism activated in base pan you have a leak once the anti flood is activated in puts the machine into permanent drain thats why it runs even with the door open but only runs the drain pump not the wash pump.
