Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDP01IL - Multiple Color Built-In Dishwasher
HI. This will occur when there are issues that concern the timer motor. This mechanism is responsible for the forward advancement of the timer plate over the dial cogs. if the motor is faulty, it will cause the cycle to not advance correctly. If this is a reoccurring case with the timer, there may be a fault within the production line that the manufacture is not aware of. To confirm damage, use the procedure below. These modules are not reparable. usually, the service tech will simply replace the timer module with a new one.
TIMER TESTING PROCEDURE
To service the timer motor, it is necessary to access the control panel in the door. Access varies by model; on some models you can remove just the control panel on others you must remove the interior or exterior panel of the door. Start with the door closed and locate any screws on the front that must be removed. Usually there are one or two screws near the latch; do not remove the latch itself unless necessary. Now open the door and remove the screws near the top. Start with the top screws and attempt to remove the control panel. Check for screws along the top of the door as well.
If the control panel cannot be removed, then it is necessary to remove the entire door panel. Remove the screws along both edges of the door. There may be several screws near the bottom of the door that secure the door to the door hinge mechanism, it should not be necessary to remove these screws. Carefully lift the panel off from the door. The panel may have wires connected, so check before lifting the panel out too far. If the panel does not lift out, check for other screws.
Remove the control panel cover to expose the door's control components. It may be held in place with additional screws or clips. Locate the timer motor. If you find two motors, the second is the rapid advance motor which operates when the wash cycle is canceled or reset. If you cannot determine which motor is the timer motor, test them both. The round motor housing has two wires extending from it. Follow the wires to the terminal connections.
Label the wires and connections so that you can properly reconnect them later. The wires are connected with slip on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire itself). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced.
Use a multimeter to test for continuity. Set the meter to the ohms setting X1000. Touch one probe to each wire. A reading in the range of 2,000 to 3,500 ohms is normal for most dishwashers. If a schematic of your dishwasher can be located, it should indicate the proper resistance for your timer motor. The schematic may be in one of the service areas of your dishwasher or your owner's manual. If your measurement varies substantially from normal range, the timer should be replaced.
