Kitchenaid dishwasher rust spots

Hello -The cause of the stains on the interior of your dishwasher may be the water. Do you know if you have hard water, water with a high mineral content? If so, do you know if the water has a high iron or maganese content?If you have hard water in your home water supply and do not have a water softener, check the owner's manual for your dishwasher - the Troubleshooting section - to see if there is mention of stains on the interior of the dishwasher.+++From the American Cleaning Institute web page on Automatic Dishwashers:http://www.cleaninginstitute.org/clean_living/automatic_dishwashing_problems.aspx#YellowYellow / Brown StainsCauses: Iron or manganese content in water supply.Solutions: After food soil is removed, wash dishes with citric acid crystals. Check dishwasher manufacturer's instructions for amount to use and method. Do not add detergent. A liquid product is available to remove iron deposits from the dishwasher interior; follow the package instructions. To retard staining, use maximum amount of dishwasher detergent to keep iron or manganese in suspension during the wash. Use a rinse additive during the rinse.Preventative Measures:If staining cannot be controlled, the only solution is in the installation of iron removal equipment in the home water supply.+++Some solutions to the interior staining problem recommend the addition of citric acid crytals to the covered section of the dishwasher detergent dispenser. If you do that, be sure you do not have any sterling silver or silver plate tableware in the dishwasher. (Those items are best washed by hand, anyway.) Citric acid will cause pits on sterling silver and silver plate. Note: Some dishwasher detergents and dish liquids have citric acid in their formulations - check the ingredients.Best wishes.

Kitchenaid dishwasher makes a crunching sound during rinse cycle

Sounds like a bearing in the pump is going. This would cause a leak be careful leak will get worst.

My dishwasher is filled with water and won't


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 filter 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.

Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Fills with water but will not start washing. pump makes a humming noise for awhile and then stops. drain cylcle then works as does the heat dry cycle. Is the wash pump the same as the drain pump?

The wash pumo and drain pump are different. So it is likely the wash pump is choked and trips or the motor is faulty. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/KITCHENAID-Parts/Dishwasher-Parts/Model-KUDS02FRSS0/0593/0130000/W0602076/00008?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=# It is likely the flap valve (item 5) or the chopper (item 6) are damaged and could be replaced before you get to the wash motor.

Doesn't start or fill lights on

Below the door small panel remove should have a technical sheet which explains how to place into diagnostic.

Control panel stopped working, no lights

The most common problem on washing machines and dishwasher is failure of the electronics, usually the circuit board. As you have already had a problem (sanitize cycle) I am afraid it sounds like you need to call an engineer. Replacing the electronics will be expensive, but it may be loose connections only. :(

Kitchenaid KUDS02 Rinse Aid dispenser does not work

I don 't know how to fix the dispenser; however, there is a jet dry product that is sold in stores that is in solid form, you just clip it to the upper rack. I have seen it in Wal-Mart in the detergent aisle.
