Kitchenaid Dishwasher Model #KUDS01FLSS6

9 posts in this topic

About 4 months ago I replaced the main computer and touchpad on this unit.

 

Customer said it ran great, until last week.

 

Now, no lights, no nothing, though power is coming in.

 

I replaced the thermal fuse and everything was back up and running.

 

Today, after a week of performing fine, same thing....no lights but power still coming in.

 

Ideas?? Other than the main board bad again?

 

Thanks,

Bruce

No, just the fuse. Do the two wires really make that much of a difference?

Now this customer called me today and the dishwasher is not working again.

 

Now the lights are on when depressed. The Start button blinks and when depressed it doesn't turn solid blue. It just keeps blinking and when the

door is closed, it doesn't start.

 

Sound like the touchpad went bad again in one year?

I would check the door switches. And install the wires that come with the fuse.

Maybe I'm missing something here.

 

Why would the wires on the fuse have the unit running for a year with no problem and now become the problem. The touch buttons are illuminating meaning it's

getting power. Right?

 

And if the door latch switches had a problem, wouldn't the display on the console not light up at all.

 

As I said, the "Start" button blinks, but when depressed, it doesn't turn solid. Like it's not responding.

That's what we call a bad touchpanel assembly Part number: AP3177981

You can verify using the touchpanel test detailed in the tech sheet.
