Hi John,

Im not at home now, but thought I would send you my question while you are online.

I have a kitchenaid model kudio1flss2, serial fp2905924. After a power failure, the dishwasher stopped working. When I push buttons, nothing lights up. I pushed the wash and cancel buttons together for 7 seconds but it did not work. Any advice on what I should be doing to get it working again?


Hi Im John I will help you with the d/w problem.

did you have a burning smell when this happened please.

We weren't in the room when it happened but we did not notice a burning smell.

That model has a thermal located in the console on the control , its a common part to fail when a power failure occurs.

I would replace this thermal fuse it should fix the problem.

Thanks so much John, I have ordered the part and will recieve it tomorrow. If it doesn't work will I have to start a new process with you or can I continue with this one? Will you be online tomorrow or friday?

If thats not the problem you can just get back to me on this same thread.

I will be on line tomorrow and Friday .
