no circulation of water in diswasher possible need circuatintion pump, how much for part viking diswasher
Answer Hello Craig! The part number for the circulation pump is PD140016. The manufacturer has discontinued this part and has no compatible substitution. Thanks!
Dishwasher is not getting dishes clean and heating element seems to be very hot during wash (more steam than usual coming from door vent, "sizzles" if I open the door mid-cycle and water hits it). Never really paid attention to how hot it gets before so this might be normal. Also, seem to be running slightly louder than normal with a "swoosh" sound every 3-4 seconds. Again, don't really pay attention to the sound when it works so this may always be the case! Drains fine. Not sure if its a temp control issue with the heating element that is steaming away the water, or a circulation pump issue that is not putting enough water on the heating element.
Answer Tom, You're very close to correct. The issue is most likely lack of water in the tub. This will allow the heater to seem extremely hot, and reduces the wash ability, and effectiveness of the detergent. Try this, start the dishwasher on a regular wash cycle, allow the machine to fill and wash for 5 minutes. Unlatch the door, remove the lower rack and look at the water level in the bottom of the tub. The water level should be within 1/8 inch of the bottom of the heater element, if not, the water level is too low and causing the issue. In most cases, it requires the replacement of the water inlet valve W10648041
I purchased a new pump for my Kitchenaid KUDI01FLSS2. Now it is installed it only starts when you press the cancel button and no water flows inside dishwasher. I am stuck.
Answer Hello Kelvin,
Check the flood switch and float. If it is in the "up" position, it turns power off to everything but the drain pump. If this is good, double check that you turned the water back on. If you did, check the wiring connections to the water valve.
