Kitchen Aid Superba Wisper Quite will not start cycle
This is an 17 year old diswasher that will not start a cycle until you open and close the door kind of hard to get it started. Sometimes you have to do it 5 to 10 times before it "kicks" in. Other than that, once it begins, it finishes the cycle programmed. Before this problem, you use to open the door and hear "clicks" that sounded like relays resetting preparing the dishwasher for the next cycle. Since this problem existed, we do not hear those clicking sounds anymore when the operation is finished and we open the door.

I have had this issue with my french door kitchen aid freezer drawer. I have a toddler who sometimes gets into the drawer. If it is left open just a hair, it will melt everything completely and water leaks out all over the floor.
The drain gets clogged when the door gets pushed back in for a tight seal and freezes again. Try to focus on keeping a really tight seal every time you open and then close the freezer...its almost like you have to TRY to close it hard to ensure it is closed. Total pain, but it works. When the door is closed tight, it stays like it is supposed to .
there is two bolts oin the very front of the unit behind the kickplate the oiu can turn clock wise until there is a slight tile toward the back of the unit so that the cams on the doors will have a little bit of gravity to helop them stay shut.
gagaweaver, couple of things you want to check here. Check the upper spray arm for any clogged holes or cracks along the edges. Position it in the 12:00 position and run the dishwasher for a little, open the door and verify that it has rotated. Make sure the water entering the dishwasher is min. 120 degrees, use a thermometer. Makes sure that there is no large pans or dishes blocking the upper spray arm from spraying onto the inner door. If all that checks out. You will have to remove the lower spray arm, filter cover and chopper cover to make sure the chopper screen is not coated or plugged up. If it is, it will prevent a good flow of water to the upper spray arm. Catriver..post back.
The Button is part of a switch control (all the buttons are individual switches) - take the switch block out of the door and test the button (switch)for circuit continuity, if it is OK, then the timer control may be the problem. My machine had progressive failures through the various cycles until most do not work and it wa the timer that was failing bit by bit.
