Kitchenaid KUDM25SH dishwasher - water not heating

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.

SOURCE: Heating element circut malfunction In Dishwasher. Wash not workin

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.

SOURCE: HElp Dishes not coming clean

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.

SOURCE: Dishwasher Reset / Diagnostics

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.

I have a kitchenaid superba dishwasher. It stopped working. The lights for the settings come on but when I hit start, nothign happens. It's about 7 yrs old.


Try turning off the breaker to it to reset the controller. Beyond that, check the water intake valve. Usually the first thing to happen is filling with water and it will wait for fill before doing anything... so if valve is stuck, it will appear nothing is happening. Valves get crud in them and fail to open.

My KitchenAid KUDM25SH has been operating fine for 9 years, but will not drain now.


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Dishwasher not draining completely problem usually occurs due to clogged/blocked drain hose or the drain pump not working. First try to clean the drain hose and drain pump filter for any clogs, then check drain pump operation. If the problem returns after cleaning then it is the drain pump that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

KitchenAid KUDM25SH sprays water from under door at start up


Make sure the area where the door and bottom of the dishwasher meet there is not a buildup of debris. Inspect the dishwasher's gasket and make sure it's intact. It is pretty common to need to replace these. Finally, unscrew the little service door on the bottom of the machine and stand back and watch it for an entire first cycle. It might be squirting out of a slightly cracked pump housing that only leaks when subjected to the stress of startup, the water valve could be leaking when it opens to fill machine, or something else could be leaking. Make sure the wash arms are not damaged, are rotating freely, and don't have anything stuck in the jet holes.
