    Thanks Catriver. I'm planning to check it out soon. I'm in charge of washing dishes until I fix it, I'm not waiting too long.

    Thanks again!

    What should the high limit thermostat read? I checked it with the ohm meter and it reads high and goes to zero or a neg number and stops. Does this mean that it's okay?

    The heating element reads very high numbers, much higher than the 11 to 31 ohms. I set the meter on 2M and it rises slowly and then reads "OL".

    Not sure what the "wax" motor is. Need more advice on this. I'm obviously a novice in this area, any help would be great.

    Thanks Tom

Tom, three things you want to check. 1. the heating element. Remove the leads from the element and ohm it out. Should read between 11 and 31 ohms. 2. Check the high limit thermostat. This sits right behind the drain pump on the right and inserts into the tub housing. Remove the leads and check for continuity. 3. The vent wax motor is inoperable. Check for continuity on the wax motor terminals. You can also put the dishwasher into a service mode to check the operation. In this sequence press high temp scub-energy saver dry-high temp scrub-energy saving dry. This will put it into a auto test mode. Let it do it's thing. If you need any further details, you can email me at [email protected] back.

    One other thing Tom, that heater runs through the nuetral side of the door switch. Make sure that the door is closing properly, dishwasher level and the door switchs are being made properly. Catriver.

The start button on my KItchen Aid Built in Dishwasher KUDI01FLSS2 will not start, there is power and the control lock is not on. It just will not start

I had the same problem although my dishwasher quit working in mid cycle. Once it quit, there was no power to the unit. I replaced the thermal coupling fuse and that solved the problem.

Wash Cycle Options

Delay Start (model dependent):

This option allows you to delay the start time of your dishwasher up

to 19 hours.


The Sanitize feature is available only in the Heavy, Auto, Normal and Half Load cycles. Press the

"Sanitize Option" button to activate the Sanitation features during these cycles. The technical sanitation

measures may also improve the drying results. The sanitize LED or The "Water Pipe" symbol will light when sanitation

requirements are met.

Note: The dishwasher automatically defaults to Auto Wash when turned off and back on. If you used the sanitize option
in your last cycle, the dishwasher will default to Auto Wash with the Sanitize option selected when you turn it on.

To achieve proper drying, always use a liquid rinse aid, even if your detergent contains a rinse aid or

drying additive.

Note: The dishwasher indicates low rinse aid by turning on the Refill Rinse Aid indicator LED (for units without

a display) or The "Spray Looking" symbol (for units with a display).

If this light is on, you need to refill the rinse aid dispenser

I got the idea that the "squiggly arrow" has something to do with the sanitize feature also. If you post your model number "on the inside right hand side of your dishwasher door" I'll go get your manual and post the link here. Hope this helps so far! :)

The inside of my stainless steel dishwasher looks as if it has a white film on it. My glasses are also looking like they are etched. I haven't changed the dishwasher soap...any ideas what is causing...

are you using a rinse agent such as jet dry( you should be) and if your using tabs with rinse aid built in dont add extra rinse aid to dispensor, . water temp might be an issueperhaps some detergent has gotten into the rinse aid compartment mistakenly
