Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Delamination I'm installing KitchenAid KUDS03CT which has the venting out of the top of the door. The steam and heat are vented directly beneath the edge of the counter top. The counter top is a preformed laminate over high density particle board. Will this cause swelling of the particle board and delamination of the laminate?

    We are so unhappy with this dishwasher. Its a terrible design and our countop is wood so it will be ruined it we dont replace this dishwasher. It soaks everything around it, and we dont believe that the vent stays shut until after things have cooled down. All that steam need to go somewhere, and it will end up under your countertop and all down the front of your custom wooden panel.

Is a gap at top between outer door panel and inner control door on Kitchenaid dishwasher KUDE normal?


When the dishwasher starts the drying cycle, there has to be vent that the steam can escape and it just so happens to be on the left side.

I always recommend that you use the vent fan whenever you're cooking on the stove top to keep heat, steam, and grease out of the controls and door panels.

Is it normal to see steam coming out of the dishwasher in the drying cycle?


Yes, The colder the room its in the more steam you will see. It will look like more steam if sun light is shinning over it. Just like your clothes dryer blowing steam out side. Its just drying.

Door gasket or sealOver time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.

Wet dishes; steam does not escape


Hi, Most dishwashers do not have steam vents! there are several reasons for poor drying in a d/washer! The first one is to see that you have rinse aid in the machine as this aids drying! Next if you have rinse aid then is it being put into the machine when it needs it? Also you must bear in mind that the dishwasher need to heat on the last rinse to create the heat to dry the items which use the steam to dry them. Check the rinse aid first and see how you get on....
Let me know.......

Steam comes out of dryer after cycle and door is opened


Probably has a restricted vent. Go outside with dryer running and check air coming out vent. Should be a good blast...not just a breath. Clean out the vent and make sure it's not kinked. If it vinyl or foil vent, replace it! Also make sure lint screen is cleaned everytime.
