    Default Kitchenaid Dishwasher does not dry dishes

    Model Number: KUDP01FLSS3
    Brand: KitchenAid
    Age: 6-10 years

    Recently, my Kitchenaid dishwasher does not dry the dishes. When I open the machine, there is water on all of the surfaces and on all of the dishes. I checked the continuity on the heater element and it is OK. What should I check next to find the problem?

    Ok, on this model you will need a new upgraded heating element/control board kit assembly. They both come together in 1 kit.

    Here's the one for your model you can order:
    Manufacturer part number 8194200 is RepairClinic item number 1094552
    8194200

    Yes, you have to pull the dishwasher out to change the heating element.

    To change the control board that you must do as well, watch this video:

    Default Kitchenaid Dishwasher not drying

    Jake, thank you for the quick response. From your input, it sounds like you believe that the control board is the part that has failed - correct?

    I understand that I need to replace both the heater and the control board as the old heater has been redesigned. No problem, i will order the replacement kit and replace both parts.

    one question - my dishwasher has a stainless steel one piece front panel. Do i need to remove the whole panel in order to get to the control board?

    Yes, its not hard to do, just remove all the inner door hex screws, then that panel just pulls up and off.

    Default Thanks

    Thank you. One last question - I assume you believe that the control board has failed. Is this a common issue?

    Basically yes, I've changed many of these in the last 10 years.

    Default Did not Work

    I ordered the control board and the new heater element and replaced both of them on Saturday. Then ran the dishwasher and the dishes and inside walls of the dishwasher are still wet after the cycle is completed.

    Now what do I check next?

    Is it drying the dishes better now? Your just seeing water drops on the inside wall now?
