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.

What are the dimensions?


You are missing a digit in the model number. KitchenAid Dishwashers have a number (0-6) after the SS.

The KUDI01FLSS0 installation guide gives the dimensions of the dishwasher opening and the unit itself on various pages. See http://www.kitchenaid.ca/assets/pdfs/literature/Installation%20Instructions%20-%208524480.pdf . The top vent and the front vent KUDI01FLSS model washers are slightly different. The front vent dishwasher dimensions are 33 7/8" H (with the wheels removed) x 23 7/8" W x 24 7/8" D (including the handle). The top vent model is only 24 1/2" deep. With the wheels in their lowest position, the opening for the dishwasher must be 34 1/2" high (from floor to the bottom of the counter top).

I hope this helps. Other KitchenAid appliance manuals are available here: http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/product_literature/search.jsp?siteCd=KAD . Use the search box to enter the model number and use the drop down menu to select Consumer.

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.......
