Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDS25SH Built-in Dishwasher
I have a Kitchenaid KUDM25SH dishwasher - approx 8 yrs old. It appears the internal water heater is not working. In super scrubber mode (heated) water temp is 120 - the same as the hot water from the tap. Prior to increasing the temp on the house water heater, the water temp was 105 in regular mode, leaving a film and grease on the dishes. Is this a heater element, or thermostat issue? I looked for a thermostat - but couldn't identify it. I assume the water heater is the element in the bottom of the tub? What is a lifespan on this unit? Thanks
Depends on how much that you use the dishwasher. It's possible that the element is burnt out. If you know how to check the element, you can with a meter, however if you don't know electrical, then by all means get a qualified individual. There isn't a thermostat. Everything is on a timer circuit.If there is a preheat on the machine, you could set it to that and the element should come on also.

Great job walking through the possible causes! Hey, it is time to check the heating element itself. First visually, looking for brakes and then feeling for "bubbles" on the round element rod. Also see if it moves excessivly when you wiggle.
If no problem obvious, after you disconnect the dishwasher from power, use a multimeter to check for resistance (Ohms) If none, look for broken (heavy guage) wires and replace what's broken - probably the element itself.
If the element checks out good, suspect the thermistor then the controller/PCB.
Good Luck! Please report back what you find, OK?

Popular Science or Mechanical Ill. recently suggested to take the drain cover at the bottom of the unit off and use a shop vacum to clean and clear out the sludge and accumulation in that section it may **** up and solve the problem,at least it is worth a try.

www.dishwasherfilter.com has a great new product out that filters the water going into your dishwasher. it reduces minerals that cause that white build up or residue. it goes under the sink and doesnt take up much room at all. my dishes looked terrible until i put this filter in. it is very affordable and works great.

Unscrew and remove the kickplate at the very bottom of the dishwasher. The tech sheet with the diagnostic code should be attached to the back of it. If not, due a websearch and you should be able to find the info on yahoo or google.
