Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDP01IL - Multiple Color Built-In Dishwasher
Ok, so I just replaced the Thermal Fuse in the dishwasher and everything seemed to be fine at first. However now we notice that it isn't draining completely - there is a good inch/inch and a half in the bottom of the dishwasher. Any help is much appreciated. Daniel
If the water doesn't drain from your dishwasher, check these:
Drain line/air gap
Drain valve and/or solenoid
most commonly its the
Drain line/air gap Aclog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reasonthat a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point wherethe drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drainline. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hoseor hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting thedishwasher again.

Tips for a great answer:
If light is blinking then it may be an
issue with heater circuit, door switch or the thermal fuse, 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 or High Temp Wash-Heated Dry-High Temp Wash-Heated 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 thermal fuse located on the control or the door switch that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post
back if you need more information.
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. 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.
