Hi –

My kitchenaid dishwasher (3 years old) is leaking water under the right bottom side of the door. It is not a lot of water, and my first attempt to fix it was cleaning the seal, which had some small amount of scum on it. This fixed it temporarily, but a few days later the water leak was back. It is not a lot of water, and doesn’t happen during the rinse only cycle, apparently. Any ideas/thoughts on this would be very useful. It is a stainless steel kitchenaid dishwasher, similar to model KDTE104DSS.

Thanks!

Adam

I had this touch pad replaced on my dishwasher less than a year ago. Could this one be dead already? The repairman also replaced the control unit but it turns out it didn’t need replacing anyway.

I decided myself to replace the door latch because the old one was broken and the repairman last year threw out the handle part!! GRRRR! Some repairman! The latch is the new improved design anyway.

I checked the big fuse and it is good with power all the way to the control board.

Not sure what else can go bad on this model? I have a new touch pad panel coming but if that doesn’t fix it what is my next area to look at?

Thanks for any help.

Frigidaire dishwasher Model FDB51OLCS3 The water will not go all the way to the top of the tube to flow into the upper rack wash arm so it will turn . If you take the ball out of the sump the water will then flow to the upper wash arm but the arm still will not turn . Do not see anything in the sump blocking the water flow.

Frigidaire dishwasher bottom arm works great upper arm does not turn because the water does not go all the way to the top of the tube that runs up the side and to the top of the dishwasher and then shoots down to the upper wash arm . I have added more water and that does not help . If I stop the washer and restart it in a few seconds the water will start then flowing strong to the upper rack threw the tube . When this happens the lower arm them gets no water to it . I did take the motor out and found some glass in the motor wheel , removed the glass and reinstalled the motor but that did not help the problem. The motor runs and seems to be running fine could the motor not be running as fast as it should and be the problem ? Only thing I can think is maybe a motor problem , the motor does seem to be running ok .

I replaced the touchpad panel about 2 weeks ago and now it is acting up. It finished a cycle and the clean light came on but two other LEDs came on faintly and are now constantly on…….nothing can make them go out .

The LEDs are for the “Potscrub” and “Heat Dry” if that helps any.

I hope the panel isn’t toast already and if so WHY??

Having troubles getting my kitchen aid dishwasher to start model number KUD01ILBL6 I rebooted it by pushing scrub and energy button x5 alternating waiting and then push cancel button 1 x and no success. Is this the correct rebooting technique for this dishwasher, and what else can I do????

How can I winterize my dishwasher for my summer cottage. I drain all the water from the system and use the air compressor to finalize so no water is in the lines. RV antifreeze to the traps.
Can you assist? I saw many of your you tube videos for how tos but not on the dishwasher winterization
Thanks

My dishwasher has power and when I push the normal cycle button and then start, the lights come on, but after a few seconds they just turn off and it never starts. Do you think it could be the fuse?

The Smart Auto and Normal LED’s are flashing per the customer. I found the motor/pump locked up due to lack of use, unstuck impeller, unit running. Not sure what the flashing LED’s reference.

Hi, I have a Fisher & Paykel DD605. The Control Module cover has 2 IR lenses on the right hand side. One of the lenses has a strange build up in the lense causing the IR to not pass through. Basically I’m looking for a Control Module cover plate only. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Not sure if this is a cycling problem or a bad timer? Dishes are clean(but slimmy not rinsed) and standing water is not dirty but sometimes cloudy.

We have to keep pushing the start button on our Kenmore Ultrawash Quiet Guard Standard dishwasher from 4-6 times before it keeps running. When you first start it, it will fill (it starts and run for less than 30 seconds). When the fill stops and it’s ready to go to the next thing, it stops and all of the lights on the control panel go out. We push start again and it will run for another few seconds, then the lights go out again. This process repeats several times. After pushing start for the initial time and then again 4-5 times, it will finally continue to run and successfully complete the cycle. Can you offer any guidance for this? This dishwasher is only a couple of years old… no more than 3.

Thank you for any help you can offer.

Our dishwasher lights up, has power, but will not start. Sometimes if I cancel it, open and close the door, and hit start again, it begins. But it’s getting more and more frustrating. Any thoughts on what it could be?

I’m hoping one of the techs there can help me figure out what part I need to replace. I’ve checked the line and the pump for any debris but didn’t see anything. Just sounds like the pump isn’t actually working correctly. Is it more than one assembly I’ll need to replace? A video would be great as well if you can find one for me.

My dryer seems to heat perfectly fine sometimes, and then other times it takes almost double the time to dry. From what I’ve read on here, it seems like gas coils are the likely answer? Wanted to check before ordering any parts.

Hi, my dishwasher randomly came on with a blinking clean light. I watched your informative video on how to reset the codes on other whirlpool dishwashers, mine however doest have the same button setup, and am curious if you know the button combination to reset mine. Ive inspected to element and put a multimeter on it to read the ohms, this checks out as fine. any help would be much obliged.

The top drawer in our two drawer Fisher and Paykal DD603 does great until it hits 50 minutes remaining. Then it starts jumping around on time 70 minutes to 40. Kind of goes wacko…. I removed the front panel and the control unit was very hot. I’m wondering if this is the first part I should change. The lower drawer does great.

Dishwasher will not start. Left hand panel cycle lights on touchpad when pushed work (pots pans, normal, etc.) and stay on for a bit then turn off. Right hand cycle lights (hi temp, sanitize, heated dry) do not come on. Have tested continuity of fuse – all OK. Have tried reset of control board using hi temp and dry buttons being pushed a total of 10 times alternating buttons – but since the lights do not come on it’s not working. Is there a way to test the control board? Is the touchpad part of the control board unit or is it a seperate part? Anyway to test that? Thanks for any assistance.

My dishwasher doesn’t want to drain completely. Initially I thought it was something stuck and cleaned out as far as possible down into the impeller or chopper area like a video I saw on here. Ran another cycle and same thing happened. Could it be something stuck further in the drain or pump area?
