Kitchen Aid KUDS01FLSS6 Won't Start
« on: September 19, 2014, 08:47:15 PM »
Kitchen Aid Dishwasher
Model: KUDS01FLSS6

We haven't had any problems with this dishwasher until now, and it just won't start even thought it has power. I can cycle through all buttons and get a green light for each. When I press normal then hit start and close the door, nothing happens and the light turns off in 30-60 seconds. No noises happen. It seems to be latching fine as usual. I don't know if this makes a difference, but if i press normal then start and don't close the door, the light turns off after ~30-60 seconds, same as when I close the door.

If you press the start button and the button keeps flashing, you have a bad button on the user interface board part number 8270168 .

The green light next to normal is solid, no flashing lights.

Then you may have a bad door switch. Need to take door panel off and test the switch.

Was gonna grab the multimeter and test the switch, but now a different problem is appearing.  The Normal and the cancel light are flashing on and off and the same time and no other buttons are responsive.

Tested both switches and the fuse and all are fine.

The ribbon the connects to the control board looks in good condition, no signs of rust.

No signs of shorts on inside.

Is there a way to test the control board and/or user interface? I don't seem to have the tech sheet.

Which of these two would be best to replace first?
