My top drawer of kitchenaid dishwasher lock light is on. I can't get it off?


It's a child lock. To turn off the child lock on a Kitchen Aid dishwasher, locate the Energy Saver/Dry button. Press and hold this button for at least four seconds.

I have a two drawer KitchenAid KUDD01DPPA. Upon pushing the start button on either drawer the dishwashers will start. then within a minute they turn red and beep non stop and the dishwashers do not run


Usually this indicates a leak. Open the bottom drawer and look underneath and behind it in the base of the frame and see if there is water sitting in there. If so, dry it out with towels. Once all the water is dried out run the dishwasher again. If the same thing happens and the water returns you will have to find the source of the leak. Sometimes its just a temporary leak from a tall item obstructing the lids from closing and sealing all the way.

Have a kitchenaid double drawer dishwasher. While running the bottom drawer the top drawer fills up with water. Had the filler valve on the garbage disposal changed. Issue still continues. Any suggestions


Mine does the same thing! (Same model) I've finally discovered that if I start the bottom drawer first and the top drawer just after that doesn't happen as much. Also, if I run the garbage disposal (and water obviously) while it's starting (I will try to do my hand washing while the dishwasher is getting going) that seems to keep this from happening as well. I've given up running just one drawer, which totally defeats the purpose of buying the 2 drawer dishwasher. But it does keep me from having to bail the bottom drawer :-( I'd like a better solution to this too!

DD-603 cycle and draining problems.


check your kitchen drain as it might be blocked or if you have a garbage disposal (kitchen insinkerator) make sure it is cleared before running the dishwasher.

Won't run unless i push ******* the drawer


On the right side of each drawer, near the top is an optical sensor (light pipe) that reflects infrared light of the side panel to indicate proper door closure. I f the unit is not aligned/installed properly the sensor will not sense proper door closure.

Unlock the controls to start dishwasher


If the model number you listed this question under is correct, this model dishwasher has two locking features (both controlled by the same button).

There is a Control Lock which locks all the control buttons, so the dishwasher cannot be started. It is enabled by pressing and holding the lock button for about 3 seconds. To disable, press and hold the lock button until the light goes out. A single beep will be heard when the feature is turned on.

There is also a Keylock feature which locks the drawer shut and disables all the controls so the dishwasher cannot be opened or started. It is enabled by pressing and holding the lock button for about 5 seconds. To disable, press and hold the lock button until the lock light goes out. Two beeps will be heard when the feature is turned on.

Both these functions are safety features that enable the consumer to lock the dishwasher controls to prevent children from inadvertently starting the appliance.

These instructions are on page 12 of your owner's manual. If you no longer have a manual, you can obtain a FREE copy at managemylife.com. Just go to the site and type in your number under the "Manuals" link. These manuals are available in .pdf (Adobe) format that you can download or print for FREE.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

1. Locate the "Energy Saver/Dry" button on the dishwasher. The location of this button will be different depending upon the specific model number of the dishwasher, but should be easy to spot. If you have trouble finding it, you can check the diagram in the manual of your dishwasher for the exact location for your specific model.

2. Press and hold down this "Energy Saver/Dry" button for at least four seconds. Make sure that you do not release the button until at least 4 seconds have passed, otherwise the lock will not become disabled.

3. Check to make sure that the child lock indicator light has turned off. If this light is no longer on, this means you were successful at turning off the child lock. If the light is still on, repeat the process, but try to press and hold the "Energy Saver/Dry" button for a few seconds longer. If it still doesn't work, there may be a more complicated issue with your dishwasher. Consult your manual, or call to the manufacturer or repair man to determine if there is another problem with your dishwasher.
