Will not complete wash cycle

Our dishwasher has stated acting up the other day when it would get to it appears the drain cycle it will just click every few seconds. I ran the automatic diags mode on it and it fails on the low current part of the test and if I hit the drain button it will attempt to spin up the motor then just click then it will just continue clicking eery few seconds. I disassembled the entire pump assem to be sure there was no blockage or broken componants. I assume it is the drain circuit side of the motor but before replacing is there another way of testing?

I had the same problem. It tried to start every few seconds when draining. I made sure there was nothing jammed in the motor, it was clean. I checked the resistance of the two windings and they were about the same. I thought it was the relay on the board but after changing it there was no improvement. I connected power directly to the motor and it just hummed. I then realized it was probably the starter capacitor. I swapped the wires between the drain and washing windings and started the motor in the diagnostic mode and it ran. While looking at the starter caps on the board I realized one was loose. I re-soldered both starter caps and it works fine.

I had the same problem. Capacitor for wash cycle completely unsoldered itself. Two 1 or 2 watt resistors nearby were getting so hot they were discoloring the circuit board. I was looking for a new capacitor when I saw jcschoen's solution, so I spent $12 on a soldering iron and solder and one hour later I am washing dishes!
More repair-it-yourselfers should enter these solutions. This was extremely helpful. It saved me over $142. Thanks

    OK I have got to post. After reading these fixes I decided to attempt a diagnosis and fix. I removed the access panel and inspected the circuit board. I found a large blue box (relay or capacitor I'm guessing) that was loose. I applied some fresh solder and BAM! Fixed! Thanks for taking the time to record this; without it I wouldn't have even attempted a fix.

KitchenAid KUDS30FXSS Dishwasher won't complete cycle


Press the Cancel/ Drain cycle for a few seconds. The dishwasher should reset itself. See if this makes any difference. Also first turn the mains power to dishwasher off and back on.

Washpump


Good Afternoon bbriones113 - From what you are stating, there is water entering and leaving the unit and the heating element is working. However, what exactly is the issue the unit is experiencing? From my understanding the unit is completing the cycle, but what do you mean by the washpump is not working? Could you please be a little more specific and with this information I can better address the issue. Thank you and I look forward to your response.

Water did not drain from the bottom


Hello Cheryl, There are a couple of possibilities. When the dishwasher drains the dirty water it is a time based function. This leads me to believe it is a blockage or partial blockage in the drain hose.
Here is an example. (If your dishwasher drains into your garbage disposal) washing dishes you put scraps into the disposal and forget to turn it on after you are done. The disposal is filled with scraps this restricts the flow of dirty waterfrom the dishwasher. If the flow is restricted less water is being drained per second from the dishwasher. This is why the dishes still looked clean and there was still water in the bottom of the dishwasher.
(if your dishwasher drains into a drain pipe) there is blockage or partial blockagein the dishwasher drain hose. if the sink drains slowly the blockage is in the main line
Hope this helps

I just had this problem with a zanussi dishwasher - I opened it this afternoon to find the bottom full of water - luckily not deep enough to flood my kitchen when I opened the door. I determined that the sink drain was clear (ran water, could hear it going down the drain outside), so the problem had to be in the dishwasher or drain hose. I poured just a little mr muscle sink & plughole unblocker in the bottom of the machine where the trap is, left it about 30 mins as per instructions, followed by a little boiled water - no difference. Scooped out the water, removed the filter (the big round bit, not just the trap that you pull out and empty) and scooped out till I could see what appears to be the out pipe. Thought what the heck and ran a rinse cycle - no dishes, no detergent and lower tray and arm thing removed for convenience. Water drained just fine, ran a second rinse cycle which got rid of the suds from the plughole unblocker. I now have an extremely clean and sparkling dishwasher and am about to run a load of dishes through it.

I hope that my post is helpful to you, I don't know if all the steps are necessary, it may have been a freak occurrence that would have gone away with a simple rinse cycle. It may of course be a problem with the pump on yours, I was hoping that wasn't the case on mine, and I had lots of old towels on hand in case water came out when I opened the door. But it's possible your machine has the same problem as mine and that this info works for you, I hope that is the case.
