Kitchen Aid Dishwasher KUDM25SHBL1 Panel Lights Flashing
Posted 15 November 2005 - 07:43 AM
From reading the technical reference sheet in the washer, it seems to imply that the blinking is a bad keypad. From searching this board it appears that the problem is either the control panel or the "electronic control Assembly".
Since these parts are expensive and i don't wish to purchase both, does anyone from the description have an idea which is more likely? Also to the long and short pulses mean anything? like a morse error code maybe. I didn't see anything in the technical spec sheet.

From the sound of what is happening and looking at your tech sheet seems like a touch pad may be sticking....if the parts are ordered thru this site they can be returned, less shipping costs, if it does not solve the problem....

I had the same problem with a kitchenaid dishwasher of similar part number. It was about 4 yrs old at the time. it turns out the entire control panel had to be replaced because the dc-dc converter could not tolerate fluctuations in voltage from the house. In my neighborhood, house voltage is not a steady 120 volts. Subsequently, the control panel eventually started exhibiting the behavior you are describing. My panel was under warranty so that was replacable, but I still had to pay labor i think.
Hope that helps

My plan is to replace the Control assembley first and then if that doesn't work the control key pad. It may cost my as little as $100 or upto $250. I guess that is ok for a 5 year old dishwasher. It's still less than the $1000 for the new one my wife would be willing to replace it with. I will post the results so hopefully it can help someone else in the future.

It turned out to be the Control Panel. I replaced it and it has been working fine ever since.
