Kitchenaid Dishwasher Will Not Fill

6 posts in this topic

Venerable Appliance Guru:

I found you while stumbling through the Google forest.

Our Kitchenaid dishwasher, model #KUDH230B0, has decided it does not want to fill (all the cycles).  It fills the first wash cycle and none of the rest.  When it gets to the fill part of a cycle it just sits there.  Then the motor starts running with no water in the tub.

I powered it off and that did not help.  The overflow protector seems to be working freely.  You can lift it up and down and it makes a click when you do so.

TIA.

Your Lowly Subject

I would suspect you have lost power to your fill valve from the control board, see if you have voltage to the valve when it is supposd to be filling...

Is that something that can come and go, since it fills on the first wash, but not after that?

And what is the fix?

You may have noticed, I am a layman!  ;)

Look at the tech sheet, the timing, the fill is in a different place for each part of each cycle, perhaps no voltage is getting to the valve from each place in the cycle from the controls, check for voltage when it should be going to the valve. You could also have a valve that is breaking down under power, this can happen,  this is why you need to see if you have voltage at the valve when it is calling for water.
