Kitchenaid (KUDM01TJWH0) Shortly aftter starting my kitchenaid (KUDM01tJWH0) dishwasher, smoke began coming out of the door. I opened the door and smelled a strong electrical smell. It is now completely dead. I drained the water out of the water line, thinking it might be plugged, but still nothing. What should my first move be to determine the cause? Breakers are fine.

Kitchenaid dishwasher - small pieces of food are left on otherwise clean dishes. Water level comes to about 1 inch below heater coil. I ran it without dishes (or soap) and added about a quart of water so that level came to about 1/4 inch below heater and that's when I noticed food pieces on drain surfaces (nylon filter under bottom spray arm unit and circular plastic "trap" surrounding it). Spray arms holes are clear and water is hot.
It sounds as if you figured the solution out. The holes in the spray arm(s) get plugged by small debris, (tooth picks, seeds, bits of plastic like candy wrappers, etc) and the water does not reach the dishes to wash and rinse effective ... Dishwashers

I have a KitchenAid KDS-17E dishwasher, which has worked well since I acquired it second-hand in 1984. Last night it ran continuously, stuck in the prewash part of fullcycle, with water being pumped through the system, and was fairly warm in the morning. It drained normally when I pressed the Cancel/drain button. I tried the machine again in full cycle. After 20 minutes it was still stuck in prewash, with the water temperature about 42 C, so I stopped it. Machine is connected to cold wate

My kitchenaid KUDI01DL dishwasher began making a lot of noise while running, then subsequently decided not to circulate the water around to wash the dishes. It sounds like the motor is running (maybe) but there is no washing action going on. The machine will fill, drain and heat the water but nothing else. Is it likely that the pump/motor assembly has ceased to function properly? thanks...

Disassemble the pump, the chopper will be on its left side under a cover. That cover is kinda tricky to remove (remove all ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI01DL - Multiple Color Built-in Dishwasher
My KitchenAid dishwasher (model KUD101TJWH0) suddenly is making noise from the motor area while inputing water into the unit, whether in the rinse or washing cycles but makes no noise in the draining cycles. I have pulled the unit out while still connected, cleaned any debris from the filter screen below the lower water spokes and can hear the noise very plainly by the motor but I know how sound can travel with the piping. Is the sound only coming from the electric drive motor attached to the

Our kitchen drain clogged recently and water drained back into our VUD141 dishwasher. A plumber cleared the drain, and turned on the DW - which pumped out the standing water. But now, we have no water flowing into the dishwasher. The drain pumps, the heater works, but there's no water supply. The plumber who cleared the drain said he didn't DO dishwashers, and I cannot locate the owner's manual since we prepared for a move.

My asko d3250 thinks the drain hose is blocked. but when i pour water in the dishwasher to see if the water is being drained, the dishwasher is draining properly. Yet the dishwasher after it has drained the water, will shutoff and start flashing the Large Pot icon (drain hose is blocked error code). Is there a sensor that is faulty?
Yes, it sounds like it is to me. I'm not able to pull your model up on my data base,if I could I would be able to tell you where it is located. I would assume that it's located either inside the pump or close to it. Sorry I couldn't be more help. ... Asko Dishwashers

There is gum stuck somewhere in my dishwasher drain line. The water won't go down. I took the inside apart and can see the hole where the drain water goes. I disconnected the drain hose under the sink. I got the water to drain out when there was alot in there, but now it won't drain again. I blew compressed air from a compressor backwards through the hose and it makes a big splash and bubbles inside the dishwasher, but the water still won't go down. I put Boiling hot water and vinager in there t

Water won't drain from bottom of dishwasher. I pulled the dishwasher out, blew through the drain tube, disconnected the drain tube and felt around inside. Ok there. The dishwasher has not been in use for 4 months, due to low hot water flow. I replaced a clogged valve today and restored water flow, and I'm wondering if non-use causes a problem with dishwashers?
Sorry to hear that you are having problems with your DW.Actually, yes. Not using a dishwasher for a while can damage some parts. Sediment from water damages the water valve. Food residues clogs the drain and drain pump. More likely the ... Dishwashers

I have a Viking dishwasher made by Asko. It is less than 6 months old. Today I had a problem with my disposal (water not draining through it and leaking under the sink) and ran the dishwasher, which cleaned/dried the dishes fine.
