I have a Kitchenaid Dishwasher M/N KUDS25SHWHO. Had to replace the control board because the unit would not start. Installed the new board and the unit now operates, but not correctly.

Used to be, you could hit any of the Wash Selection buttons and than any of the Options butons and then hit the Start button to begin the cycle.

Own a KitchenAid dishwasher, model KDC-21AD. Unit stopped shortly after startup cycle began. When cycling thru the various wash cycles, I hear a slight hum when selector switch is at the "pots/pan" selection. About 2" of water is standing in base of dishwasher and it will not start. Checked the KitchenAid site and they do not list my dishwatcher. Would like to be able to repair myself or have it done at reasonable price.

I have a kitchenaid dishwasher model kuds24se with a problem. I MUST hit cancel before I hit start. Note that it doesn't matter how long it's been since the last cycle. It could be a few minutes or a day or more. I have to hit start to get a complete wash cycle. If I don't hit cancel, the washer goes through some sort of cycle and stops. It seems like a normal cycle but of course it is not because I don't hear any water and, upon completion, when I open the door there is heat but the soap dispen

The water came in the unit and started washing then I heard it stop and it just started making a humming noise.

I just installed a new Kitchenaid dishwasher (Model KUDE60FVSS3). After filling with soap, closing the door and starting the machine, it fills with water, waits a couple of minutes and then I can hear low humming noices coming from down below. After opening the door it appears that neither spray arm has turned as if to wash. This dishwasher was purchased new a few years ago and kept in storage as our basement was being finished.

My KitchenAid Model KUDE70FXSS 2 dishwasher is new to us today and has never been used before. It was hooked up professionally, but I assumed it would work, so tonight when I tried to run it, it lights up on panel, but it won't run any cycles. It will start putting water in the machine, but then cuts off. It starts making a grinding noise underneath the machine, and it clicks like it is trying to work, but the water doesn't wash. Hmmm. Anyone know what to do?

I used the "rinse only" cycle on the dishwasher a little while ago. I've never used this cycle before. After dinner I tried to start the dishwasher, but no other buttons on the panel respond except the last one I used, which is the rinse only cycle. I push and push, I tried pushing and holding, nothing works, I get no lights no anything. I've been using the "light wash" cycle for a long time and I normally just push the start button and the last cycle used starts automatically, so I wasn't a

I have a Kenmore 665.1373 Ultra Wash dishwasher that will not work. In the past few weeks, it stopped mid-cycle, the the clean light began to flash. Sears sent out a technician who told us that the latch was not catching. He adjusted it, did something with a computer and the dishwasher worked for a couple of days.

Kitchenaid Dishwasher model # KUDS25SHBS1 has started making noise. Noise happens when unit is draining so perhaps its the same mechanism that houses the grinder. Can definetly hear a clicking as something spins around to drain the unit. I have removed the washing armature and plastic skirt around bottom and felt underneath the skirted area, but don't feel anything caught or jammed. Noise is getting louder as more draining cycles are being utilized (i.e. as we use the machine more). Anyone have
