Dishwasher will not start.  The light for the normal cycle flashes non-stop and the PC Board has already been replaced.  The dishwasher will not start nor will the dishwasher drain.  We have tried turning off the circuit breaker for half an hour but to no avail.  What do you think it is?

 

Thanks

 

Wayne

Model- kuds011jblo     recheck this number, there will not be a 11 in the model number, the second 1 will be a letter, the tech sheet should tell you how to re-set the control board but need the correct tech sheet. This will also be found in your dishwasher....

Here is the link to a service pointer, however you will need to see what is wrong with your heat circuit also so you do not keep getting this code, if the CLEAN light is blinking 7 times. If the normal light is blinking instead please confirm...

Thanks Pegi.  The model number of the Kitchen Aid dishwasher is kuds1ijblo and actually there are no service instructions on the panel under the dishwasher.  We confirmed this with Whirlpool who said they stopped putting them in there.  So I don't know if it needs a new touchpad or what?

 

Thanks,

 

Wayne

This service pointer may also address your problem closer than the clean light blinking 7 times, the stuck key pad..

[align=left]K8178151[/align]

[align=left]The electronic control is reacting to higher than normal[/align]

Sounds like it at this point if you have already replaced the control board...might see if you can carefully unstick the stuck key??  Have nothing to lose, would not think.  Will be back to post a link to your tech sheet.....

Pegi,

 

That is the serial number from directly from my dishwasher on the manual it says kuds01ij.  Hopefully that will do the trick.  How do I unstick the keys?

 

Thanks,

 

Wayne

I have not tried this but have read where others have done this on the touchpads on ranges, perhaps someone in here who has tried this can help him with what to do??  Will re-look for the tech sheet.
