Having problems with your KitchenAid KUDR01TJ Dishwasher ?

Starts humming when cycle should begin

\015 It fills with water as it should, pauses, then when it should begin the wash cycle all it does is hum. Is the motor blown or is it possible it is just stuck? I tried looking underneath to spin the blades as I saw on another site but the motor is completly enclosed.\015\012\015\012Thanks\015

Answers :

The pump has either got a clog or is a gonner, as we say. humming is a sign its trying to run, there is current across the armature, but it is stuck. could be the starter windings or it could have a capacitor that is malfunctioning. you would need to know the value of the capacitor to test it. and a tester to read the value.
do not just let the motor hum, as it will eventually heat up and may cause a permanent failure, which would be a waste if the issue is a plugged inlet. check for debris around the filter at the bottom, remove the filter for cleaning if its the type that comes out, and if so, check the bottom of the sump for debris that might have gotten past the filter.
another cause can be the timer.
beyond clearing a clog, you need a serviceman if you don't have tools and a schematic. the capacitor will have the value on it if you want to test it.
good luck

I have model GU3600XTSY2. Sometimes the pots and pans light flashes for no reason. Sometimes I can push that button and it stops. However, the cycle I select to wash the dishes is constantly interupted by the pots and pans (P&P) light flashing. If I push the P&P button, the wash cycle usually starts where it left off. Sometimes it will go back to the beginning of the cycle and begin all over again and get caught in a loop; start washer, P&P flashes, push P&P, begins cycle from beginning, P&

Dishwasher hums I have a 2003 Kenmore Elite Ultra Wash Dishwasher model #665.17469300. I started the wash today. The water came in the unit and started washing then I heard it stop and it just started making a humming noise. I was afraid it was going to overheat or something so I cancelled the washed and it drained out. I started the unit up on a different cycle and the water came in the unit but did not wash it just hummed so I cancelled and drained it again. I did that on all cycles and the sa

My Miele Platnum dishwasher is not working. It is flashing "intake/drain" When it begins instead of the normal hearing of water moving around you just hear a humming. My husband and father took out all the filters/baskets etc and made sure everything was cleaned out. They checked the hoses. After that it seemed like it was going to work because it started to cycle normally but now it is flashing again and this time there was water standing in the bottom of the dishwasher. Any thoughts?

My dishwasher skips the final drain cycle. The lines are all clean and there is no clog. It drains just fine in the beginning of the wash cycle. Every time I do a load of dishes I have to run the full cycle, then leave the machine open for 3-4 hours and start the cycle again and listen for the drain at the beginning of the wash to drain the machine from the initial wash and stop the machine after it is done draining so it won't fill up again. Sometimes we have to unplug it and wait about an hour

Item: Whirlpool Ultra Dishwasher Age: 3 yrs Problem: Not enough water to effectively wash the dishes. State: When the dishwasher is started, the fill valve opens as normal. Only about 1/2 the amount of water is let in when the pump turns on and the washing cycle begins. Opening the door shows that the water level does not reach the bottom of the float. When I close the door, the wash cycle begins again but stops after a few seconds. This is when the water begins to fill again. This time, the wat

Our GE dishwasher (5 yrs old, Model GLD4250L00CS) only fills with water half way when the unit is started. The inlet valve was replaced with a new one, but that did not solve the problem. When started, the dishwasher fill cycle runs for 41 seconds before the wash cycle begins. Repair workers told us we probably need a new ECU (Electronic Computer Unit). My questions are: Is 41 seconds the correct time for the fill cycle for our model? What else could be the reason for the unit not filling pr
