Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

My KitchenAid dishwasher model KUDS01LBS5 stopped working. no lights on, wont respond to start button or cancel. Water was left in the tub from last successful wash. breaker panel looks ok. Any ideas?


Answers :

First thing to always do on a dead dishwasher complaint is to verify\015\012that power is available at the power junction box in the dishwasher. Remove the kickplates (at bottom of dishwasher), then open the junction box cover and, see if the wire connections are still connected with wire nuts. If they are intact carefully (pull the wires out of the box) and unscrew the wire nuts, then test to make sure you have power to the connection between the house circuit and the dishwasher wires. If the wires are burnt when you open the box behind the kickplate, it is because loose electrical connections generate heat– these wire nuts were\015\012probably not installed correctly and loosened enough over time to cause\015\012the connection to burn. Because the circuit breaker didn't trip, the connections were contained by\015\012a grounded metal box, so there was little fire danger.If you have power to the dishwasher and the connections are good, screw the wire nuts back on and test the dishwasher again to see if there is power. This is the first step to check to make sure that you have power to the dishwasher and that the connections are done properly and secure. Next make sure there are no obstructions in the doors path/seal or locking mechanism and that nothing fell into the bottom of the dishwasher creating a jamb that could cause a malfunction. I hope this helps and good luck!

Kenmore model#587(Frigidaire) leaks under door. New install. Had machine for a year plus before install. took off front panel- can see water squirting past lower door gasket as wash arms rotate. cause is water running down door during wash cycle piles up in the channels molded into the lower left & right side of the wash tub and pushes out the sides of the lower gasket. looks like a design issue- called SEARS, they just want to sell me a new gasket! go figure. any ideas on a fix?


It does sound like an inner door seal ,however If you get upset at Sears and complain they may help you as they say the squeaky hinge gets the oil..And with Sears the more you squeak the better your chances of results ...Good Luck ... Dishwashers

I have a whirlpool DU915 built in dishwasher. During the last pre wash cycle after filling with water, it suddenly stopped and the lights on tne control panel went out as it was suddenly unplugged. All connections are still intact, the breaker box to the house has been checked. The shared outlet is still working, as the garbage disposal still operates normally. The latch on the door appears to be functioning. Can you please give me a direction to look?

The Start button does not light up, yet the left side did light up for wash cycles.

Also, over time the left side of the panel stopped lighting up too, so I through the circuit breaker. Can you advise which component it is.

My GSD5940Do1ss leaks from what appears to be a tube that is in the middle left of the underside. There are no leaks from the hoses or pumps. It only leaks when it is adding water during the wash or rinse cycle. The part it is leaking from looks like a plastic tube that is part of the tub enclosure. There are four of them and I think they are really the mounting guides for the tub enclosure, which means the water is probably flowing down the tub to this spot. I'm assuming that means my seal arou

I have a Sears Kenmore Elite Ultra dishwasher 665.1315 model. For the last 3 weeks, it keeps having the clean light blinking 6 times pause then 1 blink and pause and repeats cycle again. I have turned off the breaker...I have reset by pressing the heated dry and normal wash until all lights are flashing. It then completes some type of cycle and looks ok. When I opened the door, steam came out and all was hot inside. However, once I try any new wash cycle, it seems to wash but after 1-2 hours and

Poor drying, mold building up in the tub. The condensing drying system is not working well. I pulled the unit out and removed a panel on the left side (facing washer). Saw that the plastic box that appears to be set up for moist air removal and vents to the tub had considerable mold in it at the top of one of the passage ways. Looked like it might be blocking air flow. Could this be a cause of poor drying? Can this unit be removed and cleaned? Also soap isn't dissolving. Bad board controllin

Quit working during wash cycle, about 6 liters of water left in bottom, looks like it quit during rinse cycle. There is power to the door switch and door switch works shutting off power when door is opened. However the control panel does not respond to any push button. I have had a problem in the past with moisture from the door vent getting into the control panel area causing the push buttons to become eratic.


The capacitors in the control panel could be bad or have burnt out. Do check all connnections and if necessary, check the continuity of the power to and from the control panel with an ohm/voltmeter. ... Dishwashers

The dishwasher stop during the wash cycle. It did finish draining the water from the tub. The machine is not showing a power signs, I check the circuit breaker and the fuse is not tripped. I open and closed the door and the door latch seems to be working fine. There is just no power to the washer. Usually when a machine breaks down, there still is power or buttons that light up on the front of the machine. I looked on the internet and many say that the fuse could be tripped. No where can I find

The dishwasher cycle starts and gets 20-30 minutes in and then stops giving me the - - - like the door was opened, but it was not. If I use extra heated wash, the cycle stops at 63 minutes left. If I use the regular wash cycle, it stops at 43 minutes left. I have to click the resume button to get the dishwasher to complete the wash cycle. This has been happening evey time I use the dishwasher the last 2 weeks. It is Whirlpool dishwasher model GU2700XTSS! and is only 3.5 years old.

When trying to start the dishwasher, pressing the Normal wash button, the dishwasher gives a huge clunk and then it trips the circuit breaker. Upon resetting the breaker, I tried the next button over, which is Soak and Wash, and it seems to go thru the cycle fine. Another time I tried the Normal button, but put the left dial on Rinse and it started up, but it would clunk periodically and it seemed to have a 'hot' smell. I'm worried to use it - what could this be? Is there anything else I can try
