Having problems with your KitchenAid KUDK03ITBK Built-in Dishwasher ?

Not cleaning low pressure smells hot looks like

\015 Not cleaning the dishes; low pressure; smells hot; looks like heating element has been too hot, sections of it have turned a burnt brown color, burnt smell when the door is opened during the wash cycle. Tub doesn't look like it has been enveloped with water when the door is open. The Electrasol powder ball tabs not disolving during the course of the cylce. Have tried several detergents and not satisfied with any of the results. Think it is probably not detergent fault. Inside of the door is often white from detergent residue\015

I purchased a Bosch dishwasher SHU43C02uc/22 about 4 years ago. Recently during the last 2 washes, the machine has been giving off a smell like hot rubber during the wash cycle. It otherwise runs perfectly (dishes are clean, drains okay, etc). I have done just the routine maintenance like checking for large pieces of food but have found nothing so far. Any suggestions as to where I should look for where the smell might be coming from?

I have a Husky gasoline pressure washer. The honda motor starts but stalls because the pressure by-pass (not the right term) doesn't seem to open and builds up pressure. I haven't tried to remove any parts yet. I think grit has got in but don't know for sure. The pump looks pretty simple and the part I want to remove for cleaning looks like a plastic hexagon nob. Will this access the by-pass or is it something else.


I think you're right about the knob, but try this:Open the water to the washer. Leave the line open, and hold the trigger down to get all of the air out of the supply and discharge lines. While still holding the trigger down on the spray gun, ... Pressure Washers

My dishwasher emits a dead animal smell immediately after filling. I have a 20-year-old KitchenAid KUDS220T3 dishwasher. The racks are a little corroded, but it still cleans dishes just fine. About two months ago, it started smelling like a dead animal immediately after the dishwasher fills with hot water, during the time the water is being heated, but before agitation begins. The smell appears to be coming from around the door. If I open the door, everything inside the dishwasher smells fine.


This vent that you are describing is to allow air to flow in for the heat/dry cycle. Some times little creatures want to "mark" their territory by "spraying". Spray some type of cleaner like ammonia into it and **** it out with vacuum a few times. Mo ... KitchenAid Dishwashers

What does a failed pressure switch look like? I have removed my pressure switch (part 8071024). It is clean without apparent damage. The point at which the small, black hose connects has a plastic "button" inside, which appears as if it should move but it does not move at all. Is it seized? I think my issue is very similar to issue "Dishwasher Flooding Out" article on your site from (Oct 2007). This is a very helpful site, and thank you for any input on this question.

We have a Sears Ultra Wash III dishwasher, model 665.1677993, bought in October, 1995. It is not filling with enough water to get the dishes clean. I took the water valve out and looked at it and it seems okay. It doesn't look like the valve is opening all the way - just my guess. A small stream of water comes out with good pressure, but it is a small stream. I can't find any screens or filters in the water line coming in. The fill cycle lasts only about a minute. Is that adequate? Steve


There should be another letter after the p in your model number. If it's just a B then there are no parts available for that model. Typically a dishwasher will fill for 90 seconds or more. One minute or less sounds like you have a control board is ... Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher

Smeg e2 error (water level tripped). Filter is clean and no rubbish below filter on inside of dishwasher. I have taken the front panel off but am not sure where the float device is located - I am wondering if it is just to the left of what looks like a solenoid. There is no water in the base of the unit in the front panel so would rule out any leaks. Reset program and turned off power at socket but still not using hot water. Possible PCB issue ? Any advice appreciated. Smeg DI612C Dishwasher.

My Bosch dishwasher has several problems: 1) Water doesn't completely drain out and dishwasher kind-of smells when I open it -- I do keep the filter very clean. 2) The dishwasher takes HOURS to go through one load, no matter what the time says on the display and no matter what type of cycle you choose -- quick, delicate or regular. 3) The red display often displays something that looks like "2h" at the beginning of the cycle. 4) The place where you put the detergent doesn't shut.


Hi Kathryn .I think you have a defective pressure switch. The pressure switch is located near to the drain pump, and the device is used to determine when water had been drained completely.Also check the floater switch located ... Dishwashers

My Bosch dishwasher has had a problem since we had it installed. It smells like garbage after sitting for a few hours. This problem is there whether it has been run or not. Water is always standing in the large drain tube under the "filter" and it doesn't look clean. I contacted Bosch by phone as soon as this was discovered - in a matter of days after purchase - and was told by a rather haughty service person to leave the dishwasher door open. Not a practical suggestion even if it didn't sm

There is no way that a 4.5 hp engine can create 4500 psi. If you are putting the oil into the engine it would just take a 10w30 motor oil, if you are putting oil into the pump I would have to know what pump kind of pump you have, if the name isn't on ... Briggs & Stratton Pressure Washers
