Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDP02CR Built-in Dishwasher
The heating element recently went out so I contacted a repair company. Since the dishwasher is only 2 years old the part was covered under warranty. As part of heating element replacement the repairman also replaced the control panel/card. He said that was typical that KithenAid also send them this component when a warrantly item was being replaced since the control panel is prone to going bad. Now when the dishwasher is first started and begins to fill, after about a minute the washer/sprayer starts up, runs for a few seconds, then stops and the filling process continues. This never happened before. I had the repairman come back out and he said that this was perfectly normal. He said that the dishwasher fills then when it reaches a level the washer turns on briefly to bring the level back down. This sounds completely illogical to me and it never did this before. I'm suspicious that something is wrong with this new control panel part that was put in and they just don't want to replace it again. I don't want to incur the cost of having someone new come out to confirm whether or not I'm getting a straight story. Can anyone with technical knowledge provide an opinion on this? Thanks.
Joe, this is normal. Your model has a soil sensor and the updated board has a soil purge. So it will fill, purge the sensor and resume. Catriver..post back.
