Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

My dishwasher controls are frozen the light is froze on clean. The only way to use it is to pop the breaker and then the lights blink and I can start it. We replaced the breaker thinking it was the breaker but it wasn't that.


Answers :

May be faulty control board. Moisture gets in and damages the electronics. Will likely fail completely soon. Is it a Frigidaire?

My kitchen aid dishwasher will not start I replaced the interface control board thinking that was the obvious problem. When you go to set the dishwasher to start some of the settings don't always light up then when you push the start button the lights will flash then start but it's not flashing and won't start. I get lucky once in a while and get it to flash then start. I don't know where else to look. I don't want to start replacing parts one at a time till I get lucky. My model # is KUDIO1F

I have a Kitchen Aid KUDKO1ILBS1 which is constantly blinking clean. I have replaced the circuit board once because the capacitors were bulging blown out.

When we flipped the circut breaker back on the lights for Air Dry and High Temp Wash started blinking, but none of the other buttons work and when we open the door these lights stop flashing and there is no power for our machine.

I have a Kitchenaid Dishwasher Model #KUDI01FLBL6. The heavy wash light is blinking on it. If I hit cancel, all the lights start blinking on the panel.
