Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI01FLSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

With Kitchaid dishwasher KUDS01FL, it wont run. All control buttons seem to work (by lighting up when pressed) except "start". When press "start", it doesn't blink or start. Does this indicate a bad start button switch or something else? Is this something I can replace? Thanks.

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa.
To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...

-high temp wash

-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry

If still the issue is not resolved then you'll have to replace the start switch, if you have some expertise then it can done by you. However, before replacing it you can also take it apart and blow some air with the help of hair dryer so that if there is any moisture it blows it off. Please accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Thanks

    I had a start button flashing 7 times then off and repeating. Couldn't get it to reset, so based on other advice I checked the overflow float which moved freely, and then used your sequence to reset control panel. Bingo, it is working normally. Thanks for posting this solution. BTW, I have model with control buttons on top of door, not accessible when door is closed, and so I followed sequence with door open..still worked. Thanks again. Great site, especially on Dec 23rd, with no repairman available till after Christmas.

    Great help. Worked like a charm. Funny that Kitchen Aid wont explain this when you call the help line and your warrenty is expired. They only give you an 800 number for a service call that they probably get a kickback from.

I have a kitchaid dishwasher model KUDP02FR. When I press normal wash and heated dry, then start, the green light keeps flashing and will not start. Any suggestions? I had a repair man here in August for...


There are a couple of possible ways to reset the board. Pressing the keys HEATED DRY - NORMAL - HEATED DRY - NORMAL. I forget how many times, but all the lights should come on and it will do a diagnostic cycle.
It may work with the HI TEMP SCRUB, ENERGY SAVER DRY, HI TEMP SCRUB, ENERGY SAVER DRY keys depending on the machine.
I don't remember if the door is closed or open when entering the sequence. Try both.

I need to reset my Kenmore Elite dishwasher but i don't know how.


Hello,

follow the below instructions:

Unlock your Kenmore dishwasher control panel by pressing and holding the "Heated Dry" button for four seconds.

Press a series of four buttons in quick succession. Press "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash," "Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" to instruct your Kenmore dishwasher to run a short diagnostic test

Wait for two minutes while your Kenmore dishwasher runs its diagnostic test.

Press the "Cancel/Drain" button once your dishwasher has completed its diagnostic test. This should reset your dishwasher control panel and stop the "Clean" light from blinking repeatedly.
Good luck.

Kenmore 665.16032402 wont run


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the light flashes, pauses, and then repeats. When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (light flashes, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...


-high temp wash

-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Kitchenaid KUDS01FL -Dishwasher - "clean" light wont stop flashing; cant start a new load


Hi,

The clean light usually will blink due to a failure to heat the water properly. This dishwasher looks for a temperature rise of the water during a heating cycle if it fails to see this rise for multiple cycles it may shut down and blink the clean light.
There are a few things to check before resetting the control.
-The unit not being level so both door switches do not make contact
- The sump plugged up so water is not pumping across the heater (see sump clean out below)
- Not enough water filling the dishwasher
- The heat element is not working
To reset the control use this key dance within 5 seconds press: HEATED DRY, NORMAL, HEATED DRY, NORMAL
This will cause you to enter the diagnosis cycle once this is finished or you hit cancel the control should be unlocked and ready to use.

Thank you !

This worked great - press Sani Dry, then press Heated Dry - then repeat - press Sani Dry, then press Heated Dry. All control lights will light and then press Cancel. The control panel should work normally.
