Dishwasher must be connected to a hot water line in order to work properly. Also, it often requires a good deal of time for hot water to make its way from the water heater to the dishwasher. If the dishwasher is located under the kitchen counter, turn on the hot water in the sink until it runs hot, then start the dishwasher.
Many dishwashers have a built in heater, but hot water should be initially fed into the dishwasher through the water inlet in order for it to perform properly.
Hi Thanks for using FixYa. Please check for the following if your dishwasher is not
working-- 1. Fuse
(blown or tripped). 2. 120
VAC supply wiring connection faulty. Repair or replace wire fasteners at
dishwasher junction box. 3.
Electronic control board faulty. 4. Motor
(inoperative, check resistances). 5. Door
switch (open contacts). 6. Door
latch not making contact with door switch. 7. Touch
pad circuit defective. 8. No
indicator lamps illuminate when START or OPTIONS is depressed.
Please do rate the solution and revert for further
The problem with the unit is the thermal cut-out/fuse has tripped. You'll need to purchase the replacement kit #959376. It should be available at most local parts retailers, or online parts depots as well. (double check with your model number, but that is the most common)
**Be sure to use the entire kit**.
You'll notice there are new wires to the fuse to be spliced into existing ones, this is to ideally prevent the problem from re-occuring. (follow the instructions provided, you'll be fine)
If the problem does re-occure in the near future, you'll need the control, #1060952
I don't know your technical ability, but there is a fuse located next to the control board inside the console, this is a good place to start. Kitchen Aid is good about putting tech sheets on the back of the kickplate and it should have wiring and diagnostic info there. Just be sure to put the sheets back so the next service tech to work on it will have them :)
Under the machine is the water inlet valve. if you take off the front end of that you find a filter which fills up with rust, and you can clean it out. If that doesnt work, repairclinic.com will sell you a new valve for 32
1. Check plug outlet.
2. Check electrical box underneath the d/w where power cord connected to d/w (you have to take the kick panel off . The box located on right side). Sometime you can find burn wire there.
3. Check the thermal fuse on computer board. It is inside the control panel on right hand side. The fuse has 2 white plastic connector which sticks out, easy to find.
