but i dont know what you mean by the strike plate, nor where i would hear the click sound. I tried bending the peice that you can take out.. and used a screw driver to puch down the latch on the door. All to no avail.

Thanks

The strike plate is the metal actuator depressing the door latch when closing hte door, its mounted to the top of the tub assy.and as far as pushing down on the latch you would need to push down on either side of the latch( the middle section is a fixed plastic to grab the strike plate

Control panel not lighting


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

I understand by reading your post which indicates it is a KitchenAid KUDS02FRSS
you appear to have a concern with no power to the control, manifesting in the control panel not lighting, correct ?

The one thing I'd suggest is the thermal fuse, typically the symptom you've described is associated with a bad thermal fuse. (part #
661663).
Here's a helpful link below to a video from "repairclinic.com" to assist in changing (or simply checking it as shown in the second link) the fuse kit...it generalizes on most Whirlpool built dishwasher's such as yours, but if slightly different it is essentially the same.

Weak water pressure particularly in the upper spinning water arm. Never a good cleaning machine again in the upper half of the dishwasher. My other kitchenaid never had this problem...


Hi,

This sounds like debris got into the sump area of the pump. I have created a set of instructions on how to clean out. If you are up for it, follow the link below and let me know if it helped.
