    suddenly failed to function. Stopped filled with H2O. Timer cycles ok, but no action from pump/motor.  Drain is clear.  How to check for pump/motor or control problem?

    Tearing down all the way to discharge impeller, I found and cleared two small olive pits and two fragments of broken wine glass stem. Everything worked since.

To check the motor you must remove the blades and then remove the panel at the bottom of the dishwasher, there you will find the motor.
Check the motor for sign of oxide, dirt stuck, or visible damage.
When machine is on check if blades are running and if you here the pump working.
If you hear strange grinding noise from motor when machine is cycling, this can be a bad motor bearing.
If motor is not starting at all the wirings from control panel to the motor must be checked for continuity.
Afault with control board or timer may often be confused with a motor/pump fault.
This problem can be quite delicate , unless you have experience in fixing large appliances may be the case to call a technician.

Parts follow:
Timer
Pump and motor assembly

Doublecheck with part seller website that parts are right by giving them complete model number for your appliance.

Regards

Clean light blinking


If the clean light blinks four times and then pauses and then blinks four times again and repeats, the problem is your pump motor. If there is water under the DW the pump clamp has probably failed and sprayed water onto and inside the motor. Call a certified Kitchen Aid repair service.

Kitchen Aid Imperial 21 has loud motor noise duing wash cycle


loud motor noises during the wash cycle usually come from a water pump. Either the water pump will stop working soon, or it will keep working for a while longer, and the unit will stop cleaning. Sometimes the pump will stop making the noise for a while before it stops.

High pitch whining sound when unit goes into wash or rinse cycle. does not seem to wash well. need to rewash dishes. unit is a kitchen aid model # KUDIO1ILBS6


Hi--  The whining is most likely coming from the motor bearings.  Failure occurs when the seal between the motor and pump begins to leak.  If inspection by flashlight underneath tub reveals the telltale leak by the ---powdery deposits on the lowest part of the motor case,---   then the motor/pump assembly must be replaced. I have replaced well over a hundred of this type motor for exactly this problem.  Therefore, the only solution for the problem is to replace the motor.  The part is about 125$, and is easy to install if you can pull out and re-install the dishwasher.   Please acknowledge this posted solution.  Have all kinds of info on this unit if ya need it.  Thanks-  Ed

My Kitchen Aid KUDI01FLBL3 is not cleaning my


Most likely there is debris at the pump impeller. This model has a problem with debris and grease accumulation at the pump inlet. I have no idea how it gets past the screen but it does. Remove the transfer tube on the back wall, the lower sprayer, and screen assembly. Clean out the debris and reverse installation.

Kitchen aid dishwasher doesn't clean dishes in the top rack


Sounds like you have 1 of 2 problems. Either your pump is clogged or you need a bigger drain loop.

Kitchen aid dishwasher


Either:
  1. the water does not get into the dishwasher open the dishwasher 3-4 times during cycle, you should see some water at least once, if not - check water valve, water level float and water pressure.
  2. the pump is clogged - there is water, the motor will run but no water is circulated. Check pump filters, check chopper and impeller.
  3. motor in main pump is not working - could be caused by something stuck on the impeller or chopper or could be a problem with the motor itself or control board. Check if line voltage is coming to the motor during wash/rinse cycle.
Good luck,
Vlad
