I just purchased the control panel AP3177981 - I have not started to switch it over yet (tonight) - my question - when changing it out does the front face of it fit in between the stainless skin and the door ?
Answer Randy, yes the control console fits between the inner door liner and the front door panel, sort of. " The control panel on the KitchenAid KUD01 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."
Push normal wash and high temp scrub, buttons light up and when go for start no lights go on and it would not wash.
In most cases when there are no lights coming on then the issue is caused by a faulty keypad on the control panel. The way to determine if it is an issue with the control panel or the control board is to do a keypad test. The keypad test is checking continuity of certain points on the ribbon harness by using the key chart on the tech sheet which is located under the kickplate of the unit.
Lights for normal wash, heated dry, auto lock and start buttons are blinking. Dishwasher doesn't start.
Answer Hello Lae. Based on the issue, it sounds like the control panel is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit.
