Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDS01FLSS Built-In Dishwasher

Door noise I have two of these models and both have the same horrific, grinding noise when you open the door. It seems to be coming from inside the door - not at the hinge. Lubricating the hinge did not work.

Hello,

Common issue with this dishwasher. Easy fix though!! KitchenAid uses a nylon string that connects the hinges to the springs located along the bottom edges of the dishwasher. I had to pull mine out to perform this service. The nylon string seems to dry out and vibrates as the door opens and closes. All that needs to be done is put some Vaseline or other appropriate lubrication all over the nylon string. Especially where it passes through the roller and stationary guide. That will take care of any squeeking or grinding when opening or closing the door. Be careful as your door will now open just like it did when it was new. Now if I can only figure out how to keep my door from popping open during wash cycles!!!

Dishwasher door will not close dishwasher come on with door open.


Good Morning Garthraie, thanks for your post!
I see that the door on your Frigidaire dishwasher appears to be locked and will not close. Could you please advise if the control panel has any lights lit up on it? Also, may I have the model number of your dishwasher? You can locate the serial tag (which lists your model number) on the inside left hand wall of your dishwasher. With this additional information I would be able to assist you further. -Matt

How do I remove the control panel safely?


Turn off power to the dishwasher at the circuit breaker panel.

Open the dishwasher door and start taking out the screws along the inside perimeter of the door. The door should then start coming apart for you.

If I remember this model correctly, it has a false front that can be removed (once you have removed the long screws holding it), by lifting up on the handle attached to the false front and pulling up and towards you.

Remember which screws go where, because I seem to recall that this unit has different sized screws.

Good luck!

I have a customer that has a GE GLD6560L15SS dishwasher. The dishwasher works but it makes a couple odd noises. After it pumps out the water during the cycle when it starts back up it makes a very loud...


Hi Brian.

Clicking noise is often given by the bearing in the spray arm. The part is not expensive, less than one dollar.

The part is indicated as nr 611 in this diagram.

Here also parts and diagrams

GE GLD6560L15SS ' PartSelect

If that is not the problem try to understand if the noise comes from the bottom or from inside the door. If noise comes from bottom of the appliance check pump and drain line. If noise comes from the door it is possibly the control module. Noise from a relay in control module would be quite unusual with this model.

Check if the noise comes from arm bearing, that is the most common problem with this model.

As I turn the unit on, it sounds like the dishwasher is starting but no water is being dispensed. Any thoughts?


Hi,

The most likely reason is the float switch (anti-flood protection system) has been tripped and the noise you can hear is the drain pump running continuously despite the washer being empty. If this noise continues even with the door open, it's definitely the float switch. This could be a faulty switch, a stuck float, or water may have leaked into the bottom of the machine below the tub.

It would help if you could specify a model number as the flood-protection components vary between models. If you don't know the model number, you should be able to find it laser-etched at the top of the stainless-steel inner door.

Hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please specify a model number and whether the washer seems to be "running" with the door open.

Regards, BElectric

Dishwasher was on...while on I noticed a small banging noise..then it seemed the door wasnt shut tightly so I pushed it in...the washer stopped ..it wont restart and I cant open the door


Most door catches also incorporate a switch that stops the machine when you open the door. In "over closing" the door you may have "gone past" the switch which would likely make the controler think that the door was open. Try giving the door a firm but steady pull to release the mechanism.

Dishwasher makes a grinding noise when you start it and when you open the door it appears as if the bottom arm is not spinning


if the motor is grinding and not washing the impeller may be broken or there is an obstruction you will have to remove the motor to check this if impeller faulty purchase new part and fit good luck

LG Dishwasher making grinding noise then blinking E1 code 10 minutes later


Well done by resolving this problem. The other way to avoid the siphoning problem through the drain hose is adding an air gap valve/connector (available at any hardware store). You can use it even if you don't have a garbage disposal in your kitchen sink. That will assure that you have the proper height of the drain hose.
Hope this helps!

Diswasher motor making noise during wash cycle


It could be the impeller on the motor. The impeller fits over the shaft of the motor and might have split/broken up. That funny noise is probably the shaft spinning inside the damage impeller. Fortunately the impeler is fairly inexpensive and easy to replace. I believe there are one or two parts/covers to remove that are held in by a roughly half dozen torx screws.
