Question and Answers

Q:

dishwasher drains out all water while washing with the kudr01tjbt0.is it the soil sening switch.what is the resistance.disconected the drain motor & still did. kudr01tjbt0 Kitchenaid Dishwasher

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

It is not abnormal for some water to pump out while washing but not all the water. If the pressure switch senses back pressure, then it will purge some water and then add water to make up for the purged water. The pressure switch is located on the outlet side of the drain pump and it will have two wires connected to it. The pressure switch contacts are normally open until it senses back pressure while washing at which time it will cause water to purge out while washing, however it should not drain all the water out unless it has siphoning issue. You can disconnect the two wires from the pressure switch and then see if it continues to pump water out while washing. With the wires disconnected, it should only drain water during the drain cycles.

If it drained all the water while the drain pump was disconnected, then the pressure sensor switch is not the cause. If the drain hose is connected to a floor drain or if the drain hose does not have loop, water can siphon out while it's washing.

If the drain pump wiring is disconnected and the water is draining out, the drain hose routing and installation will need to be corrected.

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