How to get front off KA dishwasher?????
Posted 27 July 2005 - 02:16 AM
I have the panel, but can't seem to get the old one off, it seems to be attached in the middle but I can't see any fasteners.
The model # is KUDS01ILBL1

There seems to be something else holding it on, but I can't see it.

How does this come off, there are no visible screws.

that I need to remove the "round vent cover" on the inside of the door.
Balderdash! If you've removed the four torx screws, then just close the door and pull the top of the control console away from the door.
This couldn't be easier-- don't make it hard.

Can you feel a piece of styrofoam between the inner and outer door? If so, I know what the problem is.
1) Kitchenaid put a molded block of high density foam between the inner door and outer panel.
2) Kitchenaid also put a sticky sound deadening material on the inside of the inner panel.
3) After use, the foam block ends up glued to the inner door.
4) The only way to get it apart is by using enough force to break the foam block. I'm talking a LOT of force.
I can do it without damaging anything(except the foam), but I'm a factory repair guy, so I've done alot. Plus I'm a great big guy who likes to force things.

You can't argue with experience.
I took out the screws, sat on the floor in front of the beast, and ripped its face off.
It does take alot of force,but it came off intact, except for a little foam, which scraped off the insulation easily.
I did manage to bend a bracket a little, but a tap of a hammer took care of it.
Now the dishwasher matches the rest of the kitchen.
