Having problems with your KitchenAid Dishwashers ?

The clean light keeps blinking and the dishwasher will not start. I pushed the cancel button and it runs for about 30 seconds and just shuts off. Nothing happens when you push the start button.

Hi

If clean light is blinking 7 times then it may be an issue with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump. If yes then 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.

I just bought this house with this dishwasher built in. I have pushed the door shut, pressed the heat dry button to lock the door and pressed the start button. Nothing happens. Now I can't even get the lights on front to turn off. The lock button flashes as though the door is open, but its not as far as I can tell. I have to press the latch in to open the door. I'd like to use it... any ideas. Its a Kenmore Elite model # 665 17052 402. Thank You

I have a KitchenAid Model KUDP01FLBT5. After I push one of the clean buttons, and the start button and close it, nothing happens. The indicator lights for the buttons come on as you push them. When this first started, you would ahve to open and close the door and re-set the buttons (not sure if that button re-setting had anything to do with it) up to 20 or 30 times, and it would eventually come on. Now it won't anymore. Help!

Hi. I have a Danby DDW396W countertop dishwasher brand new yesterday. We unpacked it, installed it onto taps, loaded it with dishes, and turned it on. That's where everything went wrong. When you turn it on, the display shows P2 and when you press the program button to change it, nothing happens. When you push the start button, nothing happens. What am I doing wrong? I know I'm missing something simple, but what? Please help. Katherine
