Question about KitchenAid Dryers

1 Answer

Hi - We have a KitchenAid Dryer - Model # KEHS01PMT1. The control panel lights up but when we push the start button it doesn't start. The control light light jumps to "sensing" and does nothing. Is there a reset button or something we can do to fix?

    sorry Rylee, but this didn't fix it. It does toggle the "control lock" light on every 3 seconds or so, but doesn't release the "sensing" light or allow it to start.



    Other thoughts?

    I tried unplugging and that didn't seem to change anything yet...



    where can I get a new thermal fuse?



    How can I tell if it's the fuse before buying a new one?



    THanks,

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. To unlock the controls you’ll need to press and hold the END OF CYCLE button for 10-15 seconds. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

    Try to unplug it for two minutes then try this reset option. If still it wont work then you'll have to replace the Thermal fuse which is mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover
    panel.

Kitchenaid dishwasher 577


Does it work though? If the light is staying on after you cut power then maybe a genie is living in there :)). Other than that it could be a bulb with bad or loose connection. I do know those touch pads behave weird if there was a power cut/surge. Mine did that bit it still works. I'm just waiting to see if a light blows or if some other short happens. Anthony

Control Panel turns off


HI,
The PCB unit ie the control panel circuit board has gone bad. The probable cause of the same is moisture on the board.

Thanks

Cancel light and rinse only light keep blinking and wont start


Hello,

Hopefully you have resolved your issue. I have not heard of the cancel light flashing issue. I have had problems with the clean light flashing seven times over and over and the control panel will not operate. Here is the solution to that. Maybe it will work for your issue as well.

Open dishwasher door,
Push Hi Temp Scrub button,
Push Saver Dry button,
Push Hi Temp Scrub button again,
Push Saver Dry button again,
All lights on control panel will come on.
Close dishwasher door,
Push Baked on Cookware or Normal Button.
Dishwasher should start and complete cycle.

It is good if you have kids that play video games. Their fingers are used to pushing buttons quickly. I guess this resets the control board. The service guy let me have this info as I used to deliver appliances and work on them somewhat.Hope this helps.

Good Luck,
Tom
