Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI01TJ - Multiple Color Built-in Dishwasher
After pressing the normal cycle button, then the start button, the dishwasher begins to run (no water enters tub), then the water heating light comes on for approximately 2 seconds then goes out followed by the dishwasher shutting itself off. The entire process takes about 5-8 seconds.

My (KUDI01TJ)Dishwasher did the same thing.
I Pressed start, it acted like it was starting and then turned off.
I started the rapid advance service diagnostic feature:
1.Close dishwasher door
2.press "Hi-Temp Wash"
3.press "Energy Saver Dry"
4.press "Hi-Temp Wash"
5.press "Energy Saver Dry"
This started the diagnostics and the dishwasher went through each cycle.
After this, my dishwasher worked fine.
I think the controller must have got in some wierd mode and unpluging the washer would not clear it out but running the
diagnostics cleared it.
Hope this works for you

My dishwasher starts then stops and the "rinse only" starts blinking. I have reset by turning off the breaker and either the same thing happens or it will fill with a little water. Also if there is a level of water in the machine it will drain by pushing the cancel/drain button. If it's the control board, where can I get one?

Dishwasher was running when it wanted, wife called me this morning and said, "it's done." Having repaired appliances years ago, I tore the door down to get at the controls. I pulled the control boards out and checked all the soldering points, as on many microwaves, it is just one or two points that melt from a short and need to be re-soldered. The boards were fine. I checked out this discussion board and did the diagnostic reset. Hi Temp wash, Energy Saver, Hi Temp wash, Energy Saver and it fired up this time and stayed on. I still plan to pull the dishwasher tomorrow after work and clean the water inlet and the drain area. I replaced the heating element last year for about $275 with my appliance discount. I got 9 years out of that! The parts guys couldn't believe it, they said they usually last 3-4 years, crazy! Anyway, it is up and running thanks to everyone here, thanks to you and to the internet!

Tips for a great answer:
START/RESET status indicator light flashing
You have pressed the indicator light flashing START/RESET pad while the START/RESET dishwasher is running. This will cancel the cycle. The light will stop flashing after the dishwasher drains (about 90 seconds).
• Press the pad once to start the dishwasher. Press the pad a second time when the dishwasher is running only if you wish to cancel the cycle.
Power to the dishwasher was turned off while a cycle was running and power has just been restored to the dishwasher. The blinking lights indicate that the dishwasher is draining the potential water inside.
• The light will stop flashing after the dishwasher drains. A new cycle will start automatically.

Thanks for the help. After checking the water inlet valve / solenoid I found that I am not getting voltage to the solenoid. When 120 volts was applied the valve opened and water was available. I have also noticed that only the normal cycle is available. Heavey or Rinse Only will not stay lighted. Could this be a controller issue?
I have the exact same issue, what was the final solution?
