Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDS01FLSS Built-In Dishwasher

4 Answers

My kitchen aid dishwasher model # kudpo1flss3 stopped near the end of a cycle and now it is not responding or indicating power at the control panel. It has a little bit of water left in the tub but must have been close to completion as the dishes were clean. The breaker is on & there is power up to the connection @ the appliance. Almost acts like a main fuse is blown or something....

    As it turns out the fuse is toast, thanks for the directions.

    Tomorrow i will look into trying to get my hands on the fuse kit here in Canada.

    Any thoughts on what the most likely cause(s) for this thing to burn out might be?

    I would hate to get the thing back together only to burn out another fuse because it is merely the symptom of another issue.

    Thx,

    MF

    So I picked up the fuse kit, and am ready to replace.

    Is there a good reason why I should do the cut and splice shown in the demo version for the repalcement?

    The contacts in my dishwasher are not soldered but removable, and the fuse is identicalto the one in the kit, I should be able to just replace the fuse right?

    Hey there,
    Soooo...I changed the fuse and away it went, ran like a top.
    After a little while, I opened it up, cancelled the cycle where it had been @ when it shut down, and re-started it on a new program. As I was watching it I noticed a very small pool of water forming below the one front corner. Thinking it might have just spilled out when I interupted the old cycle, I dried it and watched it closely only to percieve a slow periodic drip that seened to be coming from the bottom corner of the door. I opened the door to see that there was a little bit of water getting by the initial door seal, finding its way onto the edge of the door and working its way down the side of the door to the floor below. I checked the seals, everything looked OK, so dried and cleaned everything off and started it up again. After a little while the dripped started again and I opened the door to find the same water accumulation on the top edge with it dripping down the door side. I tried to see if there is an adjustment to get the door to latch in a tighter position, but couldn't find anything. I put a little container below the drip and decided to see if it would run its course...it went a while, I think nearly finishing and then it just shut itself off again...no noise...no lights... no power. Sure enough, a blown fuse again! Now I'm starting to form a theory, that maybe after four years of running just fine, maybe one of my young kids put weight on the corner of the open door, thus warping the door slightly, in turn not allowing the door to seal/seat effectively, thereby allowing moisture by the seal, thereby eventually getting some moisture or perhaps even vapour into the door itself. Resulting in a short that blows the fuse...
    Does this seem plausible? Any other suggestion on what should be checked next?

You will need to have the mains plug removed and the power cord traced up to the control panel which is the main program controller unit. It seems that the program controller has failed and if so the fuse would have blown with a reason most often with a failure in the circuit. you need to check the control panel with a multimeter to confirm the position of the supply. If there is supply without any response then the controller has failed .
remove the motor line and see if the voltage builds up , look for any blown components or observe of there is any burning smell on the motor, controller or the valves- input and drain.
It will be best to check the cost of a new controller unit and confirm.

Hi

The water did not drain completely so it stopped. Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filters or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Also check this video for details---


Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Hi.

The fuse blows when there is an excessive power draw. This can be caused by a fault such as a short or a defective part, or by a temporary condition, like a power surge or a voltage problem. Most of the time the cause is a one-off occurrence and after replacing the part the machine will restart working.

You could have tested the fuse using a multimeter. To test remove the fuse and read impedance (Ohms) at the fuse contacts. If the fuse is good it will read zero or low impedance.

The fuse is located in the control assembly and it is represented as part 6 in diagram below. Click on the picture to enlarge:

    About the leak, check that hinges and door are OK. The machine is probably overfilling a bit. Check overfill device.

    If you have power to the control panel...try to cancel/drain the unit.



    If this will not reset the control turn power off at the breaker/fuse box wait five minutes then power back on.



    At what point in the cycle did the unit stop?



    Please post results

    I have posted another comment but now I see the issue was the fuse so please omit it.
    As far as the fuse blowing it could be a hundred reasons.
    Fuses are set for a certain amount of amps. If the unit has gone over that set rate then it will blow as a safety device.
    It could be a short in a wire,the heater going bad and causing the surge in amperage,etc. If you live in a rural area and the fuse is not handily available I would order two.
    You can however check for bare wires touch metal, check for continuity on the heater,ensure all wire connections are good.
    Please consider a four thumbs up for our rating if this has helped.
    Thank you in advance

    as long as you know for sure that it was just the fuse and not a broken wire, A quick continuity check would ensure that the wires were not broke.

I have an Electrolux Dishwasher that always starts on low rinse


Hello Friend, this is Z. Thank you for your post!

I see that your Electrolux dishwasher starts cycle on low rinse. This typically indicates your dishwasher has low rinse aid. The RINISING AGENT LOW light, typically located near the Rinse Only Pad, comes on at the end of cleaning cycle when the rinse agent reservoir is low. The light will remain on through 5 successive cycles or until the reservoir is filled. Also, using rinse aid will enhance dryer performance and reduces water sports and filming. Hope this helps!

Replace circuit board


If you have not already done so, it might be best to run the controller and circuit diagnostic tests before you replace the parts.
Refer to the instructions from this site.

http://applianceguru.com/forum19/24856.html
It is possible the Thermistor may be faulty causing the controller to believe the water is not heating. This will be much cheaper to replace than the controller.

We have the same problem as daniel. our less than


normally this denotes the board is faulty if there is power going into the system, but no display action.. Almost certain there are no control fuses on the board. Normally the control transformer goes faulty. Without the transformer functioning, nothing will come on. (possibly check if there might be a fuse).

My Kitchen Aid dishwasher runs for about 2 hours. Is this normal


It depends on your water pressure. Mine runs a cycle in about 25 minutes, with 92 psi water pressure. Before changing all the pipes in my house, I had about 30 psi and it took about 45 minutes. The longer it takes to fill, the longer it takes to do a wash.

Control panel cover falling apart


i looke dup your model and you seem to have the hidden control panel model. the manufacture is funny htat way they will only cover part if you have installedby auth servicer, i looked up the part for you part number 8531269 retails for about $70. its the enitre console assy including overlay. so although they cover it youd be better off buying it direct and installing your self for sure. simple enough repair, the screws (torx15) from the inner door panel come off and release the panel, everthing on the inside simply unsnaps and gets transferred to the new part. just remember to disconnect power first all live wires!
