Water won't drain, Soap Door open with soap still there and stops running at Plate Warmer cycle

First my unit is 5 yrs old. Within the past few weeks I've had to run the rinse cycle 2X for each wash. This is due to Soap Drawer open with soap partially there, water remaining in bottom of washer and wash cycle
stopping at Plate Warmer stage. Bottom of washer appears clear and unobstructed. Any ideas??

I have a Bosch dishwasher. I am getting a very large build up of crust on all the parts to the point that it clogs up and won't drain. This white build up is so thick at places it is past like. Help!


Dishwashers do not drain a such. The water has to be pumped out so it important that you don't do anything that will interfere with the efficient operation of the pump.

1. You need to pull every movable item out of the washer (baskets and the water filter units at the bottom of the washer) and give them a good clean. Then clean as much of the white gunk you can out of the machine. This is a build up of soap residue and may include undissolved soap.

2. Then run the machine while empty through 2 complete wash cycles with maximum hot water temperature to clean what remains out of it. Do NOT use any dishwasher powder while you are doing this.

3. The problem you have can be due to
- poor quality dishwasher soap powder being used or soap products completely unsuitable for dishwashers are being used
- too much soap powder product is being used
- the water temperature in the machine is far too low. In that event the water heater unit in the machine may be faulty.

Whatever dishwasher powder you are using I would change and buy a better one and also use less than what you have been using in each wash up to now. I would also STOP the machine in the middle of the wash cycle, then open the door and check the water temperature. It should be so hot a wall of steam should rush out when you open the door.

The soap is not opening during the cycle. We have tried new soap, hot water running before the cycle, little soap, you name it we do it. The only way my dishes get clean is not to shut the soap dispenser.


I have the same problem! Just in the past few days -- UGH! I am highly disappointed in this dishwasher. I read that the failure to release the door is due to soap and hard water build-up. So, I've sprayed the entire soap dispenser unit with vinegar. Hopefully that will help!

Hi, My washer does not do the final spin.....Everything else seems to work except the final fast spin. Is there anything i can do?


Stop using so much soap? These newer washer must use a slight amount of HE soap. Any other thing will cause motor over amping, burn up sensors, and cause the control to work overtime trying to remedy the problem. F35

ANALOG PRESSURE SENSOR FAILURE
If this failure is displayed, there is any malfunction of the steamer
component detected by the Steamer Electronic Board.

Possible Causes/Procedure
Check if pressure hose is fixed correctly.
Check if the airtrap is not blocked.
Check if the hose is not blocked.

Make sure you are ONLY using HE SOAP!
Correct usage amounts are as follows:

Regular HE SOAP = 2 Tablespoons
2X HE SOAP = 1 Tablespoon
3X HE SOAP = 1 Teaspoon

The information on the soap usage comes directly from Whirlpool Tech Line.

SUDS LOCK (OVERDOSE OF DETERGENT DETECTED DURING THE
WASH CYCLE)

If suds are detected continuously by the pressure switch during the drain
or spin phases, the washer will fi ll 4 liters of water and during 5 minutes
the unit will rest without tumbling, the water will be drained and it will try
to spin or drain again.

Possible Causes/Procedure

If too much detergent was used:
Run through a RINSE/SPIN cycle.
Run a NORMAL cycle without adding any detergent.
This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
Unplug washer or disconnect power.
Check wire harness connections to the drain pump, pressure switch,
and Central Control Unit (CCU).
Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
Plug in washer or reconnect power.
Check drain pump.
Check the pressure switch.
Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any cycle.

Not all of the soap dissolving, some left in dispenser and bottom


Kitchenaid lists 130 dishwashers with this model. Need the rest of the number
KUDSO1DLxxxx
Back in the day, when I worked on K Dishwashers, the drain valve was the problem typically.
It would get a piece of glass, from broken glass or other item, or a toothpick, whatever stuck in the drain valve. It would not completely close. During the wash cycle, water would be trickling down the drain and by the time the soap dispenser opens, the water would be gone or nearly gone.
Check this. When you hear the dispenser snap open, stop the dishwasher and open the door.
If you have little or no water, you are losing the water during the wash cycle.

Let me know.

If you are you using a liquid soap or packets that will be the main problem.If your unit fills with water circulates the water and drains the water,and also heaters are working then you probally need to change to cascade powder soap.The film on the dishes is soap.The unit has so much build up in it that when it gets to the rinse cycle it is rinsing dishes with soapy water.You need to get 2 medium bowls fill both 2/3 up with white vinager,place one in upper rack and one in lower rack and run unit on longest cycle letting the vinager splash out during wash.do this with no soap and no dishes.Having soft water will allow you to use less soap.

Soap not dispensed and dishes not washed


water is getting past the gasket during the start up cycle. by the time the door opens, the water has caked up the soap. also, its not clear when in the cycle the door is opening.
try using liquid soap.
also, take a peek just after the machine has finished filling and starts washing to see if the door is opened on the soap disp.
good luck
