Question about KitchenAid Dishwashers

Open Question

Dishwasher does not seem to have power. I have a Kitchen Aid, under counter unit, 9 years old, model KUDS01I. I used it 2 nights ago with no problem. When I push a button, nothing happens, no lights show, etc. It is plugged into the lower half of a duplex socket with disposal plugged into the top. Disposal works, so the problem seems to be with the dishwasher. That also eliminates any issues related to breakers or ground fault indicators, etc. Is there a reset button on the dishwasher? Is there a part that could overload and need replacing?

SOURCE: How to knock out garbage disposal plug

Turn off the power source to the garbage disposal. Take the drain hose from the dishwasher off the connector going to the disposal (if connected). Insert a flat blade screwdriver in the drain hose fitting and tap a few times with a hammer. The plastic plug will pop off inside the garbage disposal. Reach inside from the top of the disposal to retrieve the plastic plug. Sometimes you have to use a little force to tap the plug out. Hope this helps you.

You probably forgot to knock out the plug in the disposer for the dishwasher.

SOURCE: garbage disposal (water won't drain out of sink standing water)

There should be an overload button somewhere on the bottom of the disposal motor. This is to prevent the motor from trying to run if the chopping blades are jammed, otherwise the motor would burn up.

First, try to move the blades with something like a broom handle. Using a flashlight you should be able to see the blades. there's probably three of them. try to make sure each one can move even a little bit.

Next, with the disposal switch in the off position, find the overload button and push it in, Then turn on the disposal switch and see if it runs. If the overload button trips off again, repeat the above steps until the blades can turn.

Let me know how this goes. Loringh

SOURCE: kitchen aid dishwasher doesn't clean dishes in the top rack

Sounds like you have 1 of 2 problems. Either your pump is clogged or you need a bigger drain loop.

My Kitchen Aid Dishwasher model # KUDS40FVSS0 has blinking cancel, sani-rinse and normal wash lights. It will not run at all. We replace the control board and still nothing. Please Help!!!


I have had this problem. Mine didn't work for over a week and by the time the repair man came over to 'replace the board' it suddenly worked. The guy told me that if you use ANY type of liquid dishwashing soap (for your sink) and any residue/bubble is on the dishes, it can cause your dishwasher to break. I have no idea why but I've been really careful to make sure I wasn't using dish soap prior to putting them in the washer.

I've had 3 service calls on this dishwasher since I purchased it 3 years ago. I'm having similar service issues with my Kitchen Aid Fridge. And of course no help from Kitchen Aid.

I have a Kitchen Aid 2 drawer dishwasher and its about 2 years old. My problem is the top drawer will not drain during wash cycle. The bottom drawer drains fine. model number KUDD03DTSS 10


Hi,
You may have clogged pump to the drawer. open drawer, lay on your back under the dish drawer, removed the black cover (3 screws) remove 2 screws to the pump and allow the water to drain out into a bucket or bowl. make sure the pump can turn easy. Reassemble and test unit again. If fails, replace pump.

I hope this helps, good luck

Control panel cover falling apart


i looke dup your model and you seem to have the hidden control panel model. the manufacture is funny htat way they will only cover part if you have installedby auth servicer, i looked up the part for you part number 8531269 retails for about $70. its the enitre console assy including overlay. so although they cover it youd be better off buying it direct and installing your self for sure. simple enough repair, the screws (torx15) from the inner door panel come off and release the panel, everthing on the inside simply unsnaps and gets transferred to the new part. just remember to disconnect power first all live wires!

Whirpool quiet partner dishwasher seems to have no power


Ok there is a thermal fuse mounted on the control board that shuts down when it gets too hot. Did you run a sanitize cycle? Even if customers dont use the sani cycle which i recommend the fuse may open due to poor wire connections. The new fuse kit comes with a new harness and new connectors. Check the old fuse to be sure its bad. Dont remove the connectors from the new switch at all - dont disturb them and they will work better.
