Having problems with your KitchenAid Dishwashers ?

I have a KitchenAid Whisper Quiet Dishwasher. Has been working fine. Circuit breaker seem to be working but control board is now not lighting up and buttons do not respond. Seems like no power to control board.


Answers :

I may have leaked water into the mother board ciruitry. This can happen when there is a tiny leak or when steam gets in. Check with kitchenaid, that is a good product and kitchen aid will stand by thier equipment.

Zanussi Dishwasher ZDT6053. Holding the On/Off button causes the indicator lights to work correctly, but as soon as you remove your finger from the spring loaded button, all the lights go off. Would guess that on/off button should electronically latch via the control board. Have removed mains power for 60 secs in the hope of a 'hard' reset, but no fix. Is there anything obvious to check or fix or must it be a replacement control board?

The hidden control panel has only about half the lights showing what function is pressed. A couple of days ago the washer would not start. The only function which would work was the far left sensor light. After trying to cut power and pushing other buttons, to no avail, we let the machine sit a couple days. It now works again with only half the lights on function pad working. It acts like there was a electrical short.

My Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner III dishwasher will not start. I have installed a replacement control board that worked for awhile. When it quit I put the old control board back and it worked for awhile with a portion of the lights on the control panel lighting up. After switching control boards back and forth, it will not work at all now. It will run through the diagnostic program (Normal, Heated Dry, Normal, Heated Dry) but after that the start button plus other buttons are not lit so it will

The power light is on but I cannot get any of the buttons to work at all - no lights on. One day worked and the next nothing! Does that mean the control board has gone in which case not worth repairing?

I have a MDB6759AWS3 that is one year and two months old. This morning I went to the control panel to press the buttons and some would light up and others would not. I disassembled the inner panel and looked at the "computer like" flat ribbon that connects the control panel to the main circuit board and noticed that some of the wires in the flat ribbon had deteriorated. I put it back together and pressed the buttons and they flash very dimly for a few seconds and got the dishwasher working bu

'Dead' DU1100XTP The dishwasher will not start - no lights at all - no indication that anything's working (although I confirmed the unit has power). I've seen numerous posts regarding the control board - is there a problem with these in general? My unit is just beyond the warranty (naturally!) so I'd like to know if there's been any concession made by the manufacturer due to the number of problems. I'd gladly replace the board if Whirlpool would send me one. Thanks.


This may sound simple but... make sure its plugged in all the way. ... Whirlpool 24 in. DU1100XTPS Built-in Dishwasher

I have a KitchenAid dishwasher model KUDC10IXWH1 that has no control power. I have already verified that there is 120V at the control board. The unit kept the lights on after the cleaning cycle was done and I couldn't shut them off. I reset the electrical breaker and now nothing works, but the board has power. Please give any advice you might have. I was thinking of replacing the board, but I'm not sure if it is the board or the front control panel. Any way to tell?

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

Frigidaire FPHD2491 electronic buttons not working. Only China/Crystal cycle will light up and can be selected. All others do nothing. I checked the control lock and it does nothing. seems like the electronics are messed up or something. I turned power off and back on through the breaker and it made no difference.


Hello bamspry - From what you are describing if only the China/Crystal icon is working, then the dishwasher could possibly be experiencing a communication problem coming from the main control panel or wiring failure. If I was in your position, I p ... Frigidaire FPHD2491K Builtin Dishwasher

My KitchenAid KUDS01FLSS0 won't turn on when the "Start" button is pushed. Several months ago it began requiring multiple pushes to get it to start. All the cycle lights on the control panel work when pushed - except the "Start" button. Online & repair parts person suggested I replace the: - Tail Cable Ribbon; did not fix problem, then - - Electronic Control Board (interface) which also did not fix it. Should I replace the Electronic Control Board that is actually the part with the buttons

I have a Kenmore undercounter dishwasher..model 665.16022400. The "normal wash" light keeps blinking..nothing will work on it..I tried reseting didn't work, killed the breaker for a while, didn't work. I tool the panel off and reseated the ribbon connection to the electronic board..didn't work. I'm not sure if I should be replacing the electronic board, or the control panel that contains the buttons. None of the buttons appear to be stuck. thanks - Andrew

KUDP01ILBS6 Kitchenaid dishwasher Doesn't work, except flashing lights on front panel. I have the normal light flashing. When I push any other button the cancel light starts blinking as well. I replaced the fuse, the main control board inside and it still doesn't work. Push button panel next fix? This is getting expensive. Could it be something minor? The troubleshooting papers didn't provide much guidance.
