    Default KA Drawer Dishwasher top drawer wont start

    Model Number: KUDD03DTWH2
    Brand: KitchenAid
    Age: 1-5 years

    Top drawer of KA 2 drawer unit wont start, but bottom works OK. When we press start and close, it makes 3 beeps and does not start. On opening the display is flashing continuously. Press cancel and it stops flashing. Contacted dweebs at KA and they had no answer. Have flipped the breaker and still does not get any better. If this is a board, how & where do I open up to replace?

    Jan3: Repair tech traced problem to failed drawer closure switch at the back of the chassis. Part is $42 for the assembly.

    Yes Jake, it was that part. Technician installed in about 5 minutes. It just snaps in so if anyone has the same problem it should be very easy to fix. Part is located in the back right corner of the chassis, and you have to pull out the drawer to get to it. Once again thanks to you Jake
