Hello, I sometimes have luck by turning the breaker off for a solid 5 minutes. Not 4 and half but 5 minutes. This sometimes resets the control board like rebooting a computer. If that doesn't do it I'd start by checking for 120 volts at the power connection (in a little electrical box) behind the toe kick panel on the right side. if you have 120 volts their then check the fuse on the control board. You will have to remove the screws holding the control section to the door to access the control board and possible remove all screws holding the door together. The best way to do this is to sit on the floor in front of the D/W and open the door so it is in your lap. The fuse is usually a small plastic looking piece clipped to the side of the control board housing. Also some models have a black cover over the whole control board. You can go to - http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action - Type in your model number then select model search. You can get part breakdown and buy parts for most brands. Good Luck.

My kitchen aid dishwasher is 1 years old and suddenly today it does not work.checked the breaker it's fine.what may be the problem


Make sure the unit is plugged into the outlet under the sink. sometimes when moving things around under the sink, the plug may have come out of the socket in the wall. If that is ok, then you will need to make sure the D/W is getting power. You can use a multi-meter or small plug-in checker that lights up when inserted into the receptacle or outlet to check for power, or have a qualified electrician check for you. Also, just because a breaker does not look like it is tripped, doesn't mean its not. Sometimes that also has to be checked to verify it still has power. Most have to be fully turned off, then back on to be sure it has reset. One more thing to check would be to see if the dishwasher is connected to a GFCI as that may have tripped.

My Kitchen Aid Dishwasher model # KUDS40FVSS0 has blinking cancel, sani-rinse and normal wash lights. It will not run at all. We replace the control board and still nothing. Please Help!!!


I have had this problem. Mine didn't work for over a week and by the time the repair man came over to 'replace the board' it suddenly worked. The guy told me that if you use ANY type of liquid dishwashing soap (for your sink) and any residue/bubble is on the dishes, it can cause your dishwasher to break. I have no idea why but I've been really careful to make sure I wasn't using dish soap prior to putting them in the washer.

I've had 3 service calls on this dishwasher since I purchased it 3 years ago. I'm having similar service issues with my Kitchen Aid Fridge. And of course no help from Kitchen Aid.

I have an Kitchen Aid Imperial 21 Model KUD121DS2. Water, drain, and electrical is hooked up, but unit will not turn on. any ideas?


Make sure the incoming water temp is 120 degress or above and be sure that you restored flow at the angle stop. If you turned off power at the breaker box, make sure it's restored as well. If it's hooking up to a garbage disposal that did not orginally have a dishwasher, you need to knock out the plastic cap at the bypass pipe.

Cancel Light Flashing on Kitchen Aid Dishwasher


I ran into this same problem. Cutting the power didnt reset it.

After power reset, mine had the normal led blinking. If I pressed cancel, then the cancel and china button leds would start blinking too.

I pulled out the trouble shooting guide (from behind the baseboard kick panel under the dishwasher door). It that if the dishwasher wont run and button LEDs are blinking there is a short circuit in the keypad. It gave a keypad diagnostic sequence which I followed. (disconnect keypad and try to initiate the diagnostic cycle without the keypad by disconecting the yellow leads to OWI sensor twice in less than 6 seconds.

I could hear the diagnostic cycle start, so the problem is a bad keypad. Will order a new one tomorrow and let you know if it works.
