Question about KitchenAid Dishwashers

1 Answer

My kitchen aid dishwasher will not start I replaced the interface control board thinking that was the obvious problem. When you go to set the dishwasher to start some of the settings don't always light up then when you push the start button the lights will flash then start but it's not flashing and won't start. I get lucky once in a while and get it to flash then start. I don't know where else to look. I don't want to start replacing parts one at a time till I get lucky. My model # is KUDIO1FLSS3 Thanks for any help.

    when you say you replaced the interface control board are refering to the main board ? or the touchpad? were you able to find the tech manual on the machine?it can give you some diagnostic info.

Check all cables especially the ribbon cables from the user interface to the electronic control assembly as steam from dishwashings will create small amounts of corrosion and inhibit signals to and from these 2 components,unplug each,inspect,and reconnect,if this fails,then replace the electronic control assembly located behind the user interface you previously replaced

Light panel fully lit stopping program selection and start does a electronic part need replacing


I would suspect the user interface panel.

Most dishwashers can be tested thusly:

Turn off power to the dishwasher at the circuit breaker box. Take apart the Dishwasher door and unhook the cable from the User Interface panel to the main control board. Then, turn the power back on and close the dishwasher door so it latches. The drain pump should go on. If it doesn't the main board is bad. If it does, it's the user interface panel.

Kitchen Aid dishwasher won't start. All keypad buttons/lights appear to be functional.


The touch pads are common to go bad. It could be a bad start switch pad or bad control board.

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. Kitchen aid dishwasher that will not run. Control panel flashing (see video) and can't be set. I ordered and replaced the ctrl board, but this did not fix.


Flip the breaker for 30 seconds turn back on. If still blinking, push and hold start up to 30 sec. one or the other should alleviate you issues

I can't turn on my KitchenAid Superba dishwasher. I pushed Normal and Start, and the Normal light started flashing, but didn't turn on. Pushed Cancel and now both the Normal and Cancel are...


Did you try turning off the power and then connecting it again?
If still problem is there open the door. Press the following sequence of buttons HI Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry,HI Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry. Now close the dishwasher door and latch it too and press the cancel button. This must reset the dishwasher.
