Your Precious Words:

I have a kitchenaid dishwasher. Started acting up. Only some of the buttons would work… and ‘start’ would not start the unit. I have a video above of the full problem, as well as what happens when I do the ‘reset’ procedure I read about online.

I tried replacing the circuit board (twice!). it will work ONE TIME after replacing, then go back to the same problem. If I unplug for >12 hours, it also seems to work again for ONE TIME… but that is actually not 100% reliable.

I was thinking my next step is to replace the touch pad…. but was hoping you might be able to help me out. before I waist more money.

Hi Jeff,

I’m embedding the video you made in this post for illustrative purposes:

This is a classic bad touchpanel. The model number you gave is incomplete so I went with model number KUDI01DLBL1 for discussion purposes.

The touchpad that you need to replace. ==> http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Touchpad/8531249/961943?modelNumber=KUDI01DLBL1?RCAID=24038

If you click on that link and enter the complete model number off of your tag on the dishwasher, you will be sure to find the exact touchpad that you need for your dishwasher. Model number tag location help here ==> http://www.repairclinic.com/General/Help-Me-Find-My-Model-Number

In any event, the touchpad is the part that’s bad and needs to be replaced.
