Can not find on Dishwasher, looking for book that came with it KUDIO1RBL2

Ok Rilla can you give me a minute to look that model number up please.
Thanks for that Rilla.

If your repair guy cleaned out the sump and the spray arms then the problem here is a very common one, The wash motor has weakened causing the water not to circulate at the correct pressure, This is why the dishes are not coming out clean.

The dishwasher would need to be pulled out from under the counter and the pump replaced.

There is also a video if you scroll down the page that will show you how to do the repair.

I have already spent a lot on this with the replacing the panel, how much will the motor cost and would I be smart to do this or buy a new dishwasher

The motor is about $120 depending on where you buy it, If the dishwasher is in bad shape I would cut your losses and buy a new one :(

If in good shape I would definitely fix it :)

I am still trying to make a decision, probably will buy a new one.


I wish I had done that before I had to put the panel in because it was over $200. First Time I have ever had problems with a dishwasher and first time I bought a Kitchen Aid. What kind would you recommend.

I normally recommend Whirlpool
