I have a magtag quiet 100 series that has a broken handle but still shuts tight and seems to lock yet. Problem seems to be that the rinse only light will stay on for quite a long time and won't let me hit the wash button. When the rinse only light does go off, if I hit the wash button it starts but then switches to rinse only. Sometimes I can get lucky and get it to stay on wash after the rinse button is off for some time. Any suggestions?

The control lock light goes on as soon as I press the cycle to start the dishwasher. The dishwasher does not start, presumably because the control lock stays on. I do not know how to disable the control lock function. Pushing and holding the button for 3 seconds does not disable it.

Kenmore Ultra wash III will no longer stay connected to faucet after filling...what part should I replace the hose or the faucet adaptor? When we turn the faucet on to start up the dishwasher it falls off...when we finally get it to stay connected with water on...it will fill but then falls off again...get it to stay on, it empties, but then after it has completed filling up again it disconnects from the faucet.


If your adapter that hooks up to the faucet has 4 little white plastic jaws inside it then it can be rebuilt. there is a kit that replaces those 4 jaws, the spring, the attaching clip and the internal seal.. usually runs around 10 buks or so. if i wa ... Kenmore Dishwashers

The lock on light wont go off. We can not start the dishwasher. We have tried holding the noheat option for several seconds and have turned off the circuit box for several minutes and neither one made the lock on light stay off.


That is the correct button to push to turn the control lock off. You can try to reset the control by removing power for two minutes. If the dishwasher is doing the same thing, most likely the touch pad has a shorted button or a bad connection on the ... Kenmore Dishwashers

Our Kitchenaid dishwasher model # KUDP021R will not start. We close door, select wash and press start. The control lock light at the top which is lit flashes a few times and then stays lit. Dishwasher remains silent. An aside which may be helpful is that the door has always seemed to be not quite straight...as though it had to warp a tiny bit to close and lock.


The problem you have already identified could be the door switch is not closing when you shut the door. Please confirm your dishwasher is KUDP02I (i and not 1).\015\012\015\012One way to check is find out the door switch on the door panel ... KitchenAid Dishwashers
