#260372 KitchenAid Dishwasher KUDS30IXBL0 stops running

Posted by elwood13 on 08 July 2013 - 11:23 AM

Ran it again in eco mode before I went to bed. Woke up and no green light. I only added soap on the initial wash and decided to run it on 1 hour mode to get rid of soap. It ran the a complete cycle and when I opened the door, this is what the inside looked like.




I have always used the same soap packets and never noticed any suds. When I replace the vent assembly, do you think it will stop the water build up that keeps coming out from behind the control panel? I don't believe I have the vent fan motor on this one.

Man, you guys rock. I checked to see if the wax motor was closing the flap on the vent and it worked perfectly. I then took the vent off to check the seal. When I took it off, a quarter of it was crimped. It appeared that water has been leaking around it for awhile. I cleaned it up and reinstalled. Ran through a full cycle with no problems. I pulled the control panel off and it was warm, but no condensation. I couldn't find just the seal when I entered the part number on the top of the page. Should I just go ahead and buy a new assembly  or just the seal? There was a small crack in this seal. The unit is 2 1/2 years old by the way.


The one thing I did notice is that there were some soap bubbles in the bottom of the washer when the cycle completed. My wife ran the machine the other day on quick wash and I noticed small amount of foam in the bottom then. Do I need to check the drain hose or pump to see if there is a blockage?


Here are a few pics of the vent and seal.
