Question and Answers

Q:

leaking around drain pump KUDI01ILBL2 Kitchenaid Dishwasher

A:

Thank you for your inquiry on your Kitchenaid Dishwasher, Model: KUDI01ILBL2. From reviewing the details on your model, the first thing to do is to flip the house circuit breaker off that is dedicated for the dishwasher electrical circuit. Remove the lower panel and make a visual inspection of the two brass colored nuts holding the ends of the heating element to the tub. Look to see if the brass colored nuts have split causing the leak past the heating element. You will likely have to manually add enough water to cover the heating element where it enters through the floor of the tub in order to see it leak. If that does not appear to be the source of the leak, remove the front access panel. This is the panel below the door that is secured with a few screws. Once the panel is removed, connect the dishwasher and start a cycle. Then use a flashlight to watch for leaks. Just make sure to keep your hands out while the dishwasher is plugged in. once you spot the leak unplug the dishwasher to inspect the area closer. This may also be caused by a loose drain hose or in the hose connecting the drain pump to the sump. The dishwasher will likely need to be un-installed and hoses disconnected and checked for restriction or blockage or worn O-rings.

Safety Warning: Before beginning the repair, disconnect the direct power supply to the dishwasher to prevent the risk of injury or any electrical shock.

If you don’t feel comfortable or confident in this repair, then you can have it repaired at home by a sears technician. I have the included a link to the website: Sears Home Services or call 1-800-469-4663.

 

I hope this answered your question. Thank you for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com, and have yourself a wonderful day.

Thank you for responding. With respect, if you will carefully re-read my initial query you will see that I did not mention anything about the heating element. I stated, and I am quite certain, the leak is around the connection between the drain pump motor and the main housing assembly. It's not the heating element, the drain hose or a connecting hose. It's leaking around the drain pump motor where it fits into the motor housing. Will you please reconsider your answer. Thanks.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom and details, I would have to assume there was too much detergent used, or the wrong kind of detergent put in the dishwasher. Also, if you use a liquid rinse agent in the rinse aide dispenser and the rinse aide is leaking and mixing with the detergent water, it can also cause oversudsing. Normally, the automatic dishwashing detergents to not produce a alot of suds unless too much is used.

Do not add any detergent and run a short wash cycle and see if it clears out the suds.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Thanks for the reply. The detergent and the rinse agent are the same ones used in the dishwahser since it was new a few years ago. The problem only presented since the new control board and heater element was installed. A new glitch though has cropped up. I no longer have the problem with the foaming as the dishwasher no longer finishes a "Normal" wash cycle. The timer counts down until it reads 36 and stops. I've let it run for over 15 minutes with it on 36 without a change and the whole time I hear water spraying inside. When the door is opened there is water in the bottom and it's hot and steamy with some evidence of soap. The only way to move on is to cancel the wash. I did try with the dishwasher off, turning off the breaker for an hour and seeing if it would reset but to no avail. Any ideas?

Steve: The dishwasher is most likely in a water heat cycle/thermal hold cycle and the estimated time will not advance until the water is heated up and reaches the target temperature. Make sure you run the hot water at the sink before starting the dishwasher. The incoming water temperature should be a min of 120 degrees. The thermistor measures and monitors the water temperature. The thermistor should measure 12K-13K Ohms of resistance at 140 degrees. Also, make sure the high limit thermostat which is connected in a series circuit with the heating element is not open. If the heating element will get hot during the heated dry cycle, the high limit thermostat, heater and control board is Okay. I would let the dishwasher wash and it will likely finish the cycle.

Inlet water temo is +/- 140 degrees and the water stays hot. As for the heater element getting hot during the dry cycle, it never get that far,that is my problem. I tried running it again and it still hangs at "36" in Normal cycle and I tried in the "Baked on Cookware" cycle and it hangs at "44" with the "Sani-Rinse" LED also on for 20 minutes before I cancled it. Is there any way I could have inadvertantly pushed buttons that could have altered the cycle process? What if I put the old control board back in?

Steve: Was the new control part# 8564542 ? If so, it should be the correct substition. It would not hurt to install the old control and see if will complete the cycle. You did not state why you replaced the original control and if it was working and completing the cycle, it should when you re-install it. If it doesn't, it could have an issue with the thermistor or the wiring connections. If the sani light was lit, it will have to take time to heat the water before it begins to continue and cycle down.

My original post states I replaced a burnt out heater and the used the provided new control box. The old one worked and cycled fine. I'll swap them out and try them. I was under the impression that the replacement heater unit required the new control box. Thanks for the help.

A:

Steve; Part number 8564543 is an alternate control board. It should work for your model and the new heater. The kit you installed, was it part #8194200 with a different style heater? If so. this is the correct kit. The replacement heater has a little higher wattage rating and that's why the new control must be installed.

I can understand how important it is to have your dishwasher working properly. From what you are describing, it sounds like either the spring or the rope guide is damaged and needs to be replace. This is what the door uses for tension. The image below will show you how to access and fix this part. If you don't feel comfortable doing this yourself, just click on this link to schedule service: Sears Home Services . I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
