Kitchen Aid Superba Wisper Quite will not start cycle
This is an 17 year old diswasher that will not start a cycle until you open and close the door kind of hard to get it started. Sometimes you have to do it 5 to 10 times before it "kicks" in. Other than that, once it begins, it finishes the cycle programmed. Before this problem, you use to open the door and hear "clicks" that sounded like relays resetting preparing the dishwasher for the next cycle. Since this problem existed, we do not hear those clicking sounds anymore when the operation is finished and we open the door.

Is there something stuck inside, underneath, being turned along with the motor? burning smell usually means something got caught and the belt snapped. Not expensive and don't know if it's an easy DYI. Shouldn't cost too much to have it repaired or you can google the brand and model and the word belt, see what you find.
see this causes: Power from the house reset the c.breaker from your hose or replace blown fuse inside the machine. Door switch test the door switch for open or defective this will NOT permit to close the relais for start the motor Wiring loose wiring, break or burn repair Timer or selector switch selector switch, open or defective, timer defective, however clean contacts diryt or oxide, loose wires, break or burn. GOD BLESS YOU.
Are you using a rinse aid? if so and teh dishes are still not drying properly, try adjusting the setting for the rinse aid dispenser. Open the door of the dishwasher, open the flap where you pour in the rinse aid and look for the cirlce with the arrow and nunbers on it. If it is set low (1 or 2) try turning the arrow to a higher number. If that adjustment doesn't work, increase again and again until the dishes are dry.
I have the same problem and it appears that everyone else who has replaced the door seal runs in top this issue. This is a new seal design that is different from the original. This new seal is obviously poorly designed is placing too much pressure on the door causing it to either not close, or open mid cycle. I am presently duck taping the door closed when running the machine in the hope that the heat cycling the new seal will eventually cause it to deform and relieve the pressure. I see that other have attempted to help the process by increasing the release pressure on the latch. This will be the last Kitchenaid large appliance I purchase.
first check the circuit breaker box you might hva tripped abreaker, next close the door softly, and listen to perhaps hear the door switch activating, id the door doesnt close (bad switch) no power to rest of d/w
gagaweaver, couple of things you want to check here. Check the upper spray arm for any clogged holes or cracks along the edges. Position it in the 12:00 position and run the dishwasher for a little, open the door and verify that it has rotated. Make sure the water entering the dishwasher is min. 120 degrees, use a thermometer. Makes sure that there is no large pans or dishes blocking the upper spray arm from spraying onto the inner door. If all that checks out. You will have to remove the lower spray arm, filter cover and chopper cover to make sure the chopper screen is not coated or plugged up. If it is, it will prevent a good flow of water to the upper spray arm. Catriver..post back.
The Button is part of a switch control (all the buttons are individual switches) - take the switch block out of the door and test the button (switch)for circuit continuity, if it is OK, then the timer control may be the problem. My machine had progressive failures through the various cycles until most do not work and it wa the timer that was failing bit by bit.
