Unhappy Blinking Lights on Panel
Model Number: KUDIO2IRBL1   Brand: Kitchen Aid   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


The Normal, Cancel, and Drying light are all blinking continually on my KitchenAid Dishwasher Model # KUDIO2IRBL1. This happened once before and I just quite trying to use it for a while then after a few months I tried again and it worked for another 6 months. Now it is happening again and I am sick of washing dishes by hand. I would love to fix this myself, but need some guidance. I have ready many of the other posts and see tech sheets, but none come up when I click on them. Please help me!!!!!!!

You probably have a dirty touchpad ribbon or bad key pads on the control panel.

Part number: AP3868455

Part number: AP3868455


PROBLEM: WONíT RUN AND LED ABOVE KEY(S) IS
FLASHING RAPIDLY
Short circuit(s) in keypad or in
controlís input lines that read
the keys.
Donít replace both.


You can attempt to clean the touchpad ribbon, where it plugs into the control board, with alcohol, you'd need to remove the control panel.

Removing the Console Panel
The control panel on the KitchenAid KUD Dishwasher comes in two versions: a) Split Controls: Top
and Front Display and b) Front Display. Both control panels are removed in the same manner.
1. Remove the six (6) screws securing the control panel to the door frame.
2. The control panel will now drop down and be free of the door assembly. The wiring harness will remain connected to the console components.


Here is the diagnostic test / control board reset procedure :

NOTE 1. To invoke the Diagnostics Cycle,
perform the following key presses in less than
6 seconds while in standby:


Heated Dry
Normal Heated Dry Normal

You can reset the control, it should work at least one complete cycle.

Good Luck,

Thanks for your information Joe. We tried the diagnostic cycle and the normal light just flashed at us and nothing happened. We then cleaned the ribbon as you described and now nothing is happeneing for a while. we tried it again 5 minutes later and the normal light began flashing and then when we pressed other buttons the drying and cancel lights also began flashing.

My husband also took the door locking mechanism apart to make sure it didn't have anything to do with that and all was ok, mechanically and electrically we got the same results as normal when pushing the buttons.

What should we do next? Is the part your were describing just the ribbon repacement or also the keypad and how do we install that if it needs to be replaced. It looked to me like the ribbon was attached to the keypad so they would have to come as a unit or something. I'm at a loss, but would like to get it fixed ASAP if we can. Thanks so much for your help!

Anrobert,

You apparently have several key pads that have failed,

If you order the control panel assembly, per the previous post, you'll recieve everything you need( keypad, keypad ribbon, and the control panel, itself.

Since you have already checked and serviced the door latch assembly, you'll have no problem replacing the panel, just a few more screws and clips.

Just remember to seat the new ribbon properly and use the lubricant around the ribbon and connector, so we don't get corrosion on the connections.

Good Luck,
