Having problems with your KitchenAid Dishwashers ?

Kitchenaid dishwasher....clean light will not turn off. Dishwasher will not turn on. Just had motor and pump replaced on Thursday 12-30.

Hi

\015\012If clean light is blinking indicates an issue with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump. To resolve this please reset the power to the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error. If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry, Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry. Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button and allow it to completely drain and reset.
If this doesn't work then it's an issue with the wash pump not pumping the water past the heater efficiently or due to lack of water to heat. Please make sure that heater is not open circuited and is heating the water efficiently. You'll have to check the heater using a multimeter; the meter should read between 3000 to 3300 ohms (Use multimeter on Rx1 ohm setting). If heater is fine then make sure water pressure is optimum and fill valve is working fine. Hope this helps... Please post back for further assistance.

Inlet/Drain light is on. I have cleaned the drain pump and non-return valve, rinsed under water, removes all foriegn objects, turned the drain pump impeller (which turns freely) and carefully replaced the non-return valve and secured it with the locking clamp.

Whirlpool dishwasher part #3385181. Machine had gone thru wash cycle and was starting to dry. Smelled electrical burning smell, opened washer door and washer was filled with smoke. Turned everything off, cleared smoke, and the washer water dispenser is very hard to turn. Washer has symptoms of burnt up motor that turns water dispenser. Machine is 12 years old.

Whirlpool model DU960 - from 2001, I think. Stopped running mid-cycle and the cycle lights flash. Won't run. How to fix? If I press 'Cancel/Drain', it flashes that button light. If I press one of the wash cycles again, it turns on the pump for about 1 second, shuts off and the lights flash again. I tried turning off the circuit breaker and turning it back on, but it still won't run. Is this fixable? Do I need to call for service? Or, would I be better off just replacing it?

Dishwasher starts and runs to 2nd rinse cycle, when pump starts to pump water out, all lights on front display flash along with key pab lights blinking. you can turn off and restart, but is does the same. Diswasher will also try to start when in off mode. Replaced circuit board and it does to same. Did I get a bad circuit board or is there another problem. Also when I try water service test, I get a Rinse aid fault.

Have a Westinghouse 905 dishwasher (guessing approx 5-10yrs old). When I turn it on it's starts is cycle as expected then stops after about 10mins and loses all power (can't turn it on or get any lights to light up for sometime almost like it needs to cool down) at this point the dishwasher is full of water. It is not the pump however as as soon as you can get power to it (sometimes some hours later) and turn it on the first thing it does is pump out the water. Any ideas??


It is likely the thermal relay is tripping. This could be because if you are feeding hot water to inlet the temperature of water is too high, or the dishwasher heater is faulty and overheating the water. Or it is also possible the thermal cutout is s ... Westinghouse Dishwashers

Maytag DWU6402AAB dishwasher hums but motor does not run. I've taken the inside apart down to the disk-shaped impeller. It turns freely so the pump and motor are not stuck. When control knob is turned motor hums at the places where it normally should run. The water valve & heating coil seem to be operationg normally. i assume the next step is to test the motor &/or motor relay. Is this correct and how do I do that?

My AEG Favourit F35080vl is behaving strangely. When turned on, the lights don't light and it doesn't work, but it emits a ticking noise! After an hour or so it works (until yesterday), and is ok, unless turned off. It was inadvertently turned off at the weekend, and now ticks whenever turned on and refuses to behave normally again. We got a local repair man out who replaced the logic board at a considerable cost, and it has made no difference. He says he doesn't know what to do next! Any ideas?

My kenmore/whirlpool dishwasher makes a noise, sort of a grinding noise, throughout most of the cycle. I have removed the pump and motor thinking that their might be something in the pump, but there is nothing there. My guess is that the motor is making the noise, but I do not know how to tell other than by replacing the motor and seeing if the noise goes away.
