Kitchenaid KUDS01IJBL0 Blinking Lights

I have a 6 year old Kitchenaid KUDS01IJBL0.  The unit has standing water in it (about an inch), it won't run, and the rinse and add-a-dish light are blinking.  To reset, I've tried to unplugged it for several minutes, and have also hit the cancel button with no success.  What is the problem, and is it worth repairing?

    I have the same problem. Washer stops in the middle of the cycle and the cycle light and the number display will blink. I can do nothing except kill the power for a few minutes. I tried cleaning the control panel and door switch electrical connections and it seemed to help for a while. But, the problem is back.

the rinse aid compartment has to be one of the biggest things in your unit. it helps with drying process or you will have wet dishes, helps with spots, and also with the cleaning process, this is what you can do . add jet dry or rinse aid not soap .fill compartment then close door ,then raise and lower door 3times then open the compartment door and add more repeat this process until you cant add anymore. this will pull all of the air out of the dispenser and allow you to fully fill compartment . the light should go off .

Remove power and keep aside for few hours, Allow the internal voltages to discharge and thus reset if there was an error on the processor.
Before the power is plugged check the door safety switch and also connections to the controller unit. check the inlet vavle and drain pump, if short is suspected remove and check.
If the fault returns then we need to suspect the processor controller board.

Buttons on the dishwasher's control panel is not working. When starting a "normal" load, it switches to "clean" and does not start the wash.

Hello. Most likely, the humming sound you hear is a jammed drain pump which is activated immediately to pump out any stale or standing water below the level which you can see. Then, fresh, hot water enters the tub to start washing the dishes. I need the model number and exactly what lights are blinking--those blinking lights are error codes(combinations of 2 or more lights, one light blinking a certain number of times, then blinking again, a different number of times--ex 3 times, then 7 times) the lights blink a binary error code--thats why I need the model number to look up the code on the chart

KitchenAid stops working when anything other than liquid is in the bowl..

There is a non metal gear inside the motor head that is stripped and no longer engaging the worm drive. What happens when you try to assist the turning process (try it only on stir speed, sloooowwwww) if it starts to turn and then stops again then it is the gear I spoke of. It will require tearing down the machine, cleaning all old grease, to insure that you have no ground up parts in the grease, then replace the grease gasket and gear. Hope this helps

I have a KitchenAid mn KUDS01IJBL0 and it stopped lights on controll panel...some water standing in bottom of unit...I checked to make sure it has electrical service to unit and it does...unit...

You'll have to take the door apart to access the controls. Before you do so turn the breaker to the machine off. You will also need a voltmeter with the ability to test continuity. Once you have the power off, open the door to the machine and remove the four screws across the top, and then down the sides, this should give you access to the door latch and the main control. On the control you want to located the white block looking thing located normally near the top of the door respectively. Take the wires off and test for continuity, if its there the fuse is good but more than likely it won't be and that will be the problem. The part number for that is pt# 8193762 and can be purchased at any appliance part store. Now if the fuse is good put the door together and take the kickplate, the lower part, off and then on the right side you'll see a silver box, which you need to open to see where the power comes into the machine. Sometimes the wires get to hot and melt causing a short. If this is the case fix the wires, and if its not and the fuse is good then your control board is bad and that part number is 8528172

Removed power line from panel board # 11 as seen in appliance parts pros and shocked the board. It came to life and completed a cycle nominally. Then it died again. Tried to shock it again and sometimes it works but most times it doesn/t. Similar posts indicate a transistor failure in the board assembly. The board is easy to replace and costs about 90$. I'm replacing mine. Turn off power. Remove #15 torx screws (6) from the upper cover and lean panel forward. Remove board power . Diagram where connectors go back. Board is held in with 6 clips. Gently push clips open on one side and tilt board to remove board and ribbon cable. Reverse installation.

SEVEN Blinks---High voltage shutdown. The high voltage has exceeded 33k

Blinking lights on KitchenAid blender

Alternating blinking lights on a Kitchenaid blender indicate a bad circuit board which is unable to run the motor properly. Unplug the blender, take the jar off, and turn the spindle by hand. Then plug it back in. If it does not work properly, try a different outlet (perhaps not in the kitchen). If nothing works, the blender needs to be repaired.
