I have a kitchenaid 2 drawer dishwasher when I try to start

Customer Question

I have a kitchenaid 2 drawer dishwasher when I try to start it the blue light comes on then changes to red I can hear the pump coming on the unit keeps beeping. The bottom drawer will not start but the bottom drawer has about 1 inch of water and the heater is on as the warer is very hot. I have to shut off the breaker to stop it.
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your KitchenAid is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: It is about 6 years old and is only used occasionally as it is my summer home. I'm not sure where to find the model number.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Yes
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Not that I can think of

You either have a bad wash rotor or board issue in the unit. These are complicated units you may want to have a tech out to check the drawers out on the unit. The unit is fixable but I am not sure you may be able to do the repair, you would have to let me know.

All I ask is please use the Star Rating Link at the top of your page before leaving, that is the only way I am paid anything through the site and that will also get you a DIRECT LINK emailed to you to get back to me! are greatly appreciated so thank you very much for using this service.
