KitchenAid Dishwasher Door Pops open during cycle

The problem seems to be the loosening of the screws that hold the interior stainless steel skin to the door frame--not the latch.

With the door in the open position you should find a total of twelve screws (5 on each side and 2 on top at each side of the latch). The screws have a particular type of head which may require a trip to the hardware (its a $1,000 dishwasher take the time to get the right screwdriver). They are called TORX screws the size on my dishwasher was a T 15. These type of screw heads were designed to fit automated torque drivers at the factory that set the screws to the proper tension. So some care should be given when you retighten them. Turn until the screw is snug and there no movement of the inner door skin but don't over tighten. Giving it that extra 1/4 turn can be enough to strip the screw out and create a bigger problem.

Yes--you shouldn't have to be doing this to a KitchenAid appliance that cost this much--but I suspect that this will become a feature of periodic maintenance. The heating and cooling generates enough movement that overtime these screws work themselves out. My wife who was the once to make the right diagnosis noticed that the screws at the bottom were almost entirely out.

Clean light flashing 7 times. Can't start the machine

For KitchenAid Whirlpool KUDS01FLSS0 -- When the clean light is blinking or flashing 7 times in a row and no other front panel controls will work, do the following:
push SaniRinse-EnergySaverDry- SaniRinse - Energy Saver Dry
(Try the Heated Dry button if you don't have a Energy Saver Dry button)
All the lights will then come on as this will put the unit into diagnostic mode.
Then, push Cancel after about 10 seconds. You are no longer locked out. Run the dishwasher normally.

Squeaky door

On our KitchenAid dishwasher we had the same problem--a REALLY loud squeak as it opened. The sound comes from the nylon rope slipping along the plastic pulleys. We've had the DW for about 3 years and the noise has gotten worse over time. I was determined to win the war against the noise and am happy to say I fixed it today.

The trick is to use a dry lubricant on the cord and on the pulleys. I used Dry Graphite by Gunk. It comes in an aerosol spray can and once the stuff dried the squeak was gone. I'll let you know if it comes back...

Kitchenaid dishwasher not heating water: Model KUDM01T. What should be the voltage at the element? I'm measuring 12v.

As it takes a lot of energy to heat water, energy that would be impractical at 12 volts I am guessing the voltage should be the same as the mains supply, whatever that is.

Why is my Kitchenaid dishwasher model KUDS01DJSS0 pump making loud humming noise? Pump motor suddenly began making loud humming noise when running. (not so bad when draining).

Some dishwashers have a soft food disposal inside. If something is hung up, it will grind or hum for a long time. If this is the problem, it will eventually go away.

Clean light flashes 6 times kitchenaid dishwasher

Kitchenaid: KUDE03FTSS1. Cleaning light pulses 6 times plus 1 1. Dishes not drying and wash cycle shutting down before finishing the complete wash cycle. Check door switch, ok. Check heating element, Ok at 14 ohms. Got to thinking, the Logic part of the mainboard must be working. It diagnosed itself. Remove K3 relay from W1019358 main electronic board. Took the plastic cover off the little 5-volt relay. Applied 5 Vdc to the coil, it worked. Found pitted contact points on the relay. Erratic continuity on contact points.I purchased 10, JS1-F-5V relays from an online electronic parts store. 10 relays shipped to my door $23.00. A new board could cost from 175.00 to 350.00. I also replaced the K2 Pilot relay. it was the same relay as the Heater K3 relay. The Dishwasher works great. The active parts general go bad. I had a Whirlpool dryer, found the heater element relay went bad on its board, replaced it for $4.50 I guess I got lucky on this dishwasher , tooStay Safe

Kitchenaid KDTE104DSS0 dishwasher. The heating element is always on - even without any cycle selection. Even after a power cycle, the element is on immediately. Testing shows code 6-6.

This could be the relay that controls the heating element, I dont see a separate relay so it may be on the main board. The relay could be stuck closed due to the high current that might have welded the contacts closed. It could also be a sensor issue that is closing that relay. The error code you listed says it is detecting cold water.

Door Drops Open - How to Fix

Today my father and I solved this problem permanently for about four dollars. Yes only $4!!! I priced out the total repair for a Kitchenaid repair guy with parts and labor to be at least $250 and that was just too much for a $1500 dishwasher. Here's how we did it and here's how kitchenaid should have done it in the first place...After searching the internet and diagnosing the problem with my kitchenaid superba dishwasher, I also found that my nylon pulley spring system on one side had ruptured. Door made loud explosive sound one day when opening and then would just drop open real hard once unlatched after that day. I really didn't care too much about it until my three year old almost opened the door on my one year old's head. I took off the bottom panel and found a broken nylon string and a couple of white plastic pieces. That lead me to this website.So I looked into fixing this myself and got ready to order the part from herehttp://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SSPartDetail.aspx?PartID=1059756&PPStack=1and found it would be about $25 with shipping and handling and would arrive in about a week. I figured that there has to be a better way than nylon string to absorb the transition from metal spring to metal door. This problem was bound to recur in a short period of time because nylon is not made to take that tensile force. We went to Lowe's, bought four feet of 1/16 inch galvanized woven steel cable (total cost of $1) and two sets of ferrule and stops ($3 for both). 7_9_2012_4_05_45_am.jpgThen we unscrewed the two side fasteners holding the dishwasher to the cabinets (We had already unscrewed the two screws and removed the base board). We placed masking tape on the floor to prevent the foot pads from scratching as we pulled out the dishwasher. With a little upward lift, my father was able to turn the foot pads and create more room and we then placed felt pads under them to padd additional protection from scratching.7_9_2012_4_10_15_am.jpgHere is the broken nylon and its plastic pieces and the spring7_9_2012_4_13_55_am.jpgclose up of the poor construction that this heavy door relies on7_9_2012_4_14_43_am.jpgWe then measured out the distance from the end of the spring through the pulleys and to the hook on the door to be 17 inches, and thus, constructed a steel replica 16.5 inches to keep everything tight.7_9_2012_4_16_49_am.jpgSo, from then end of one loop to the end of the other loop measured 16.5 inches. We double crimped each end with the ferrules.7_9_2012_4_18_30_am.jpgThe other side was intact, but we just went ahead and removed it and replaced it with our new steel cable replicas. Here is the final insertion showing the steel cable going through the pulleys and hooking on the door.7_9_2012_4_20_28_am.jpgThe door works great. My wife can't believe it. Most of all, my children are safe from head injuries from the heavy door. This whole escapade took about 45 minutes to do and literally only cost $4, yes four dollars. I suggest two people to do the job as my father was helpful in holding the flashlight and making sure we had enough slack on the water lines when we pulled out and pushed the washer back in. I hope this helps anyone that googles 'kitchenaid superba door' or 'kitchenaid superba broken heavy door'. Eat your heart out kitchenaid, make the next line of washers with a steel cable instead of nylon.
