Kitchenaid dish drawer kudd01dppa

7 posts in this topic

The original call was bottom drawer not running. I ran in diagnostic mode it gave me a water valve error power to valve no fill I ordered a valve. Week later I installed new valve ran in diagnostic mode and this time it filled but I got a motor jam Hall effect error. Followed tech sheet to ordering a hall sensor. My question is why would these seemingly unrelated parts go out at the same time? I'm afraid when I put the new hall sensor on it will run a little further in diagnostic mode and error out with a new prob like not draining. Also I don't like to take the tech sheets from the machines but would like to study further so a service manual or tech sheet would be helpful. Thanks.

Not that i was made aware of but it's a single guy who works out of town a lot for weeks at a time and he primarily uses the top drawer. So it does sit. I had the breaker off when I changed the valve but was not thinking and did not try turning breaker off for a few after getting second error. Why?

I'll get some more background info. I can't remember for sure but I think he was away for a while and noticed it. Honestly it's been a month since I was first out there and he will be back in town this week so I can get out there hopefully for the last time.

It was sitting in storage for several months. After also replacing the flex drain lines because of leaks it has been running great thanks

Good job!  Those drain hose supports are a common fail item causing the drain hose to crimp and spring a leak.  Good catch!
