I'm in the process of replacing the plastic control panel on our kitchenaid dishwasher as the screws were tightened to tight and broke. The thin plastic device over the control buttons appears to be glued in place. Is it possible to remove it and re-install in on the replacement panel or do I need to buy a new botton cover device as well? Thanks, Lumy

I thought the metal bar had to be locked into place somewhere in the black latch. This was not the case. I just put the white plastic latch in place in the slot in the door and closed the panel and the metal bar went into the correct position against the black latch.
I don't know your technical ability, but there is a fuse located next to the control board inside the console, this is a good place to start. Kitchen Aid is good about putting tech sheets on the back of the kickplate and it should have wiring and diagnostic info there. Just be sure to put the sheets back so the next service tech to work on it will have them :)
It depends on your water pressure. Mine runs a cycle in about 25 minutes, with 92 psi water pressure. Before changing all the pipes in my house, I had about 30 psi and it took about 45 minutes. The longer it takes to fill, the longer it takes to do a wash.
Ok you need to use plastic or rubber washers against the glass so it doesn't break. To stop the handle comming loose again you need to put "Lock Tight" on the screw threads then tighten carefully only untill the handle isn't loose. You can get this from any good hardware store. cheers
Yes indeed! If you know the measurements, you can buy a stainless panel from www.applianceart.com cut to any size you would like. THey also have a cheaper "faux" stainless option too. Many colors and designs as well.
The latch needs to be replaced. Kitchen Aid has made two updates to this latch. I.E. 2-revised latches. I just replacd the latch assembly and the dishwasher works fine now. Do a search for kitchen aid repair parts online and hav them shipped to your home. The repair takes five minutes. Un-screw all torx bit screws on door and the latch is under neath. One electrical dip switch held on by another screw and a two prong tab to undo the old latch. This seriously took me five minutes to repair and the parts were $40.00 online shipped.
1. Check plug outlet.
2. Check electrical box underneath the d/w where power cord connected to d/w (you have to take the kick panel off . The box located on right side). Sometime you can find burn wire there.
3. Check the thermal fuse on computer board. It is inside the control panel on right hand side. The fuse has 2 white plastic connector which sticks out, easy to find.
I had the same problem- needed a new control panel. good luck. Didn't bother going through kitchen aid even though its still under warranty- figured they'd nail me on labor (it's in the 2- 5 yr warranty period) and I'd be waiting forever. had a private appliance tech take care of the problem.
