Maybe that is a bit much... I thought of something else you might check... there is a screen at the bottom of the dishwasher... make sure it is clean so that water can keep recirculating.

The thing about adding water is that if you add the water at the beginning, it is going to circulate for 3 minutes or so and then dump out the water and attempt to refill. Most machines do a couple "rinse off" cycles before the soap dispenser opens and the machine washes the dishes for a long time. So you have to put the water in after you hear the dispenser "pop" open.

I'm not completely sure about the Kitchen Aid, but their might be a way to adjust the time that the water inlet valve stays open at the beginning of the cycle... you'll have to check your manual.

Hi


If clean light is blinking then it may be an issue with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump, please reset the power to the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error. If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry, Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry. Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button and allow it to completely drain and reset. If this doesn't work then it's an issue with the wash pump not pumping the water past the heater efficiently or due to lack of water to heat. Please make sure that heater is not open circuited and is heating the water efficiently. You'll have to check the heater using a multimeter; the meter should read between 3000 to 3300 ohms (Use multimeter on Rx1 ohm setting). If heater is fine then make sure water pressure is optimum and fill valve is working fine. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Do you hear a humming sound, like the motor trying to run, then stopping for a minute or two before trying again?

Usually, dishwashers run the motor one direction to wash, and the opposite direction to drain, but some use a valve to switch. If you see wires going to a bulky flapper looking part sticking off the side of the pump/motor, you might have a bad valve actuator.

Otherwise, you might have a motor refusing to turn in one direction. You can usually access the shaft from inside the tub by removing the washer arm to get access to the pump impeller. Do not remove the impeller unless necessary, but see if it will turn both directions. Broken glass or pieces of bones or other debris might be interfering with the rotation. If it turns freely both ways, but still won't wash, it is likely you have a bad starter coil on the motor, and will need to replace the motor/pump assembly. These usually have a longer warranty than the rest of the unit, so if yours is less than 5 years old or so, it would be worth checking with factory service.

If the model number is correct, you can lock and unlock the controls on your dishwasher by pressing and holding the HEAT DRY button for at least 4 seconds. If these instructions do not work for you, or if your model number differs, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Check the float switch, there is a switch under a little cover inside the sump of the unit. It will look like smaller than a can of soda. If you are able to get the cover off (some are glued) then see if the float will move up and down.
