    Lights on control panel flash. Pushing cancel button does not work. Tried shutting off power to get unit to reset, but same result.
    For model number KUDS301VWH3
    Hello Jeff, thank you for your question. The first part I would recommend testing is the door switch. If the switch doesn't activate you won't be able to make any selections on the panel. The door switch is part number PS11745501. Here is a link that will show you how to test the door switch. https://www.partselect.com/Dishwasher+test-door-switch+repair.htm If the door switch is ok, the next step would be to test the bi metal fuse. Part number PS2360984. This part can be tested for continuity. If there is no continuity the part should be replaced. Also check the connection between the control panel and the board. If the previous information doesn't help, the issue would be with the control panel or electronic control board. I hope this helps!

    The door latch fails mid-cycle every time i run it. I've replaced the latch and strike plate; that staved off the problem for 3 months. Then i replaced to the door balance link kit, which had no effect on the latch failure (it did solve the creak when opening the door!). Is replacing the door switch my next best option?
    For model number KUDP02SRSS3
    Hello Greg, thank you for your question. Yes, that would be the next step. It sounds like the door switch is faulty. I hope this helps!

    Kitchen aid dishwasher will not operate. The "heavy duty" and "normal wash" blue lights blink but no other lights come on. Is there a reset setting or code? Any suggestions ? Thanks
    For model number KUDS30IVBL4
    Hi Gary, Thank you for the question. Sometimes the "Heavy Duty" and "Normal" lights will flash to indicate and error has been detected. You can reset the appliance by unpluging the dishwasher and wait two minutes and then return power to the machine. Open and close the dishwasher door firmly and select a new wash cycle, followed by Start. Hope this helps!

        dishwasher quit halfway thru a wash cycle
        first I noticed that the dishwasher wasn't making any noise. Then I saw that there were no lights on the control panel. I opened the door and found water dripping off everything... I closed the door and tried hitting every button I could see, nothing happened. I checked the breaker, it was ok, and since I did all the wiring myself, I knew that was ok too. So I pulled off the upper panel of the front door and got out the electrical schematic that came with the washer.
        first stop, the TCO, the thermal cutoff, it's like an inline fuse. I got 120 volts going in and nothing coming out. Did an ohm check and it was open.
        Found it locally and replaced it. Now I've power to the control panel but the washer still doesn't work
        because the micro switch in the handle is broken and that turns out to be the original problem...
        the stupid plastic handle broke the micro-switch which shorted the TCO...

        Unit Would Not Work.
        I had no lights on the console. Found the internal fuse blown, as I was looking around noticed the door latch also broken so I replaced that as well. Items were easy to identify from the bom and repairs completed in about 15-20 minutes. Dishes all clean now.
