    I need to reboot
    For model number KDTE204DSS0
    Hi Meg. You can cut off the power at your breaker for 30 seconds to do a traditional reboot. Some dishwashers reset after pressing buttons four times each, but just press each button five times, alternating between them since it works for most dishwasher models. First push the Hi Temp, Hi Temp Scrub or Hi Temp Wash button and then press the Heated Dry, Energy Saver Dry or Air Dry button. Thank you for your question and good luck with your repair.

    Dishwasher is leaking from the center, how do you determine what should be replaced? Seal to pump or gasket seal inside?
    For model number KDTE204DSS0
    Hello Caroline, Thank you for your question. If the leak is coming from the center, our sources suggest replacing the door seal under part PS11731683 for your model to fix the leak. We hope this helps.

    front indicator light is blue when cleaning but does not show red when drying or white when finished
    For model number KDTE204DSS0
    Hi Rick, Thank you for your question. If the indicator lights are not coming on as the dishwasher goes through its cycle, reset it by turning the circuit breaker off for a few minutes. If the issue continues, you will need to inspect the control panel and the electronic control board. We hope this helps! If you have any questions, please let us know.

    How do I run a diagnostic test for this model. My dishwasher is not filling up with water.
    For model number KDTE204DSS0
    Hello Satish, thank you for your question. Unfortunately, we do not have the information on a diagnostic test available. Be sure the water is turned on to the dishwasher. Check that the float is free from obstructions and also that there is no soap or foam inside the dishwasher. If foam or suds are detected, the dishwasher may not operate properly or may not fill with water. It could also be your inlet valve, part number PS12578165. If you need help placing an order, our customer service is open 7 days a week. Please feel free to give us a call. We look forward to hearing from you!

    When running diagnostics, red light is on heating. How do I determine if the heating element, fuse or other needs replacement?
    For model number KDTE204DSS0
    Hi Steve, other than a visual inspection you would need to test them with a multimeter for continuity. Thank you for your question and good luck with your repair!

      Replaced Hinge Link
      Pulled dishwasher from under counter, attached link to spring, hooked spring back into frame/chassis, threaded link through pulleys, attached other end of link onto door, reinstalled dishwasher under counter. All's well. Note-I purchased an extra link anticipating that the other one will fail. They're cheap enough.

      Door spring link broken
      1. Open the dishwasher and remove the two plastic grommets about halfway down on either side of the opening. Then remove the two screws under the grommets.

      2. Remove the kick plate under the door. May have to lower unit by turning the feet using the adjustable wrench.

      3. Make sure you have enough slack in the water input line and electrical wiring that you can pull the dishwasher out about 12 inches or more.

      4. There is a spring and nylon rope link on both sides of the unit. Probably just one link is broken, but the replacement comes with two, so you can replace both or save one as a spare. Look at the good side and it should be pretty self explanatory how it attaches. I found it easiest to first thread the link around the lower pulley, then attach the link to the spring, then spring to the rear support, then the link to the door.

      5. Reverse (2 to 1) to reinstall the dishwasher.

      The door would drop open when it was released
      This was the second time I had this problem so I knew the symptoms and remedy. The tools needed were two nut drivers a ¼” and 5/16” along with a flat pry bar and Phillips screw driver. I started by removing the lower front panel by removing the two ¼” screws on either side. The lower panel will lift up and then can be removed by pulling on the bottom. There is a flat sheet metal piece behind the front panel with insulation that can be removed very easily along with the front panel. When the front panel is removed it exposes the front legs that may need to be dropped to let you lift the dishwasher over the tile (if you have ceramic tiles). The next step would be to remove any ties to the counter top if it is attached. Mine were attached by the two straps on either side with Phillips screws. After the top is free, lower the front legs by lifting the dishwasher with the flat pry bar and threading the legs up into their holders. With the legs lifted the dishwasher can be pulled out to expose the tension springs located along the sides at the very bottom. Chances are the ropes are broken off the plastic holders that fit over the door hooks.
      Remove the plastic guides by removing the 5/16” nut from the middle of the lower roller. Remember to note which hole the screw is coming from this also sets the tension for how fast or slowly the door drops. Placing the nut closer to the front will drop the door slowly and toward the back will drop the door more quickly. I placed mine in the middle hole. When the plastic guides are removed attach the nylon pope to the spring and attach to the back of the dishwasher. There is a hole located on a flat piece of sheet metal the spring will attach to at the back of the dishwasher (if it is broken). Check the other side if it is still in tact. With the spring in place weave the rope around the plastic guides then pull the springs to help get the plastic end over the door hook located at the bottom of the door. Repeat this operation for the other side (kit has a both sides covered) and reinstall dishwasher in cabinet.
      Steps
      1) Remove front panel (1/4” nut)
      2) Release Dishwasher from Cabinet
      3) Lower front legs
      4) Pull Dishwasher out from under Cabinet
      5) Remove Rope Guide (5/16” nut)
      6) Install new Rope Guide (Supplied in Kit)
      7) Attach new rope to Spring and attach spring to dishwasher
      8) Weave rope through rope guide
      9) With door closed pull spring to relieve tension so rope can be attached to door
      10) Repeat for other side (Kit has both sides)
