Although I'm not familiar with this model, it sounds like a switch is stuck or misaligned. With most electronic things, there's a physical toggle switch (sometimes 2 magnetic points, similar to a window security system) located somewhere along the drawers tracks or latch or at the back. Try to find it and see if it still freely moves. If it does than most likely the switch has failed and needs replacement. Hope this helps and good luck!

It is maybe a belt slipping or it needs new bearings

This repair works for an older Whirlpool dishwasher, but I think several other brand-names use the same design as this brand/model and the fix could apply to them too.

I had a large leak coming out the front of my Whirlpool Quiet Partner II dishwasher this week. Some of the fix-it websites online said the likely cause was a crack or split seam in the lower spray arm; but upon inspecting it I found no problem there. Further, I discovered a seemingly inexplicable discrepancy when I ran the dishwasher with the spray arm off: it didn't leak at all then; but when I put the spray arm back on it leaked bad just like before.

What I discovered upon looking more closely with the spray arm off was this: there were severeal stainless-steel screws that hold the round top onto the pump/impeller housing, creating a gap between the two. I tightened the screws back down and ran the thing with spray arm back on, and presto! No leak.

I concluded with the spray arm on, there's enough back pressure that water was shooting out through the gap at the front of the housing, aiming directly at the hinge gap inside at the bottom of the door. But the reason it didn't leak with the spray arm off is because all the water was able to shoot up freely with no back pressure forcing water out the aforementioned gap.

You need a T-15 Torx bit to tighten the screws down; I'd advise doing that by hand instead of with a power screw-driver: a power tool will have enough torque that you can crack the plastic around the screw hole--which in fact I did, though not enough of a crack to create a problem.

I'll post photos and a video showing all this. Hope this solves your problem like it did mine.

PS After I fixed the leak I got curious and took all 8 screws off and removed the round top piece, and found there's a black rubber seal/gasket that helps prevent water leaks, and a small piece of glass from some broken glassware earlier had wedged itself up under the rubber gasket. Probably not enough to prevent it from sealing sufficiently; but it might be a good idea while you're there to check that the gasket is in place and not compromised by foreign matter. And while you're at it, inspect the drain inlet fins below: I found a large piece of a broken wine glass, two metal screws, and chunks of paper residue from labels that had gotten washed off. Had to use tweezers to pull all that junk out. It would be potentially disastrous if some of that stuff had gone deeper and wrecked the pump . . .377654bb-8c7c-4d13-8475-3118a8d9dd2e.jpg

Double check that model number...tell me what lights are alternating...that's a error code.

KitchenAid... | Answered on Jan 10, 2019

Model number? The model number is inside the door normally. Any lights on or it, or old dial type with no front lights?

KitchenAid... | Answered on Jan 10, 2019

Its inside the control board itself, its snapped into it with little tabs holding it.'s round, and has two wires on it. About the size of a nickel.

That's not a valid model number. how you know it's error 15?

They sale stuff, but you can do the same thing with vinegar. Not it's not going to hurt it, its made for food. Grab a jug of vinegar. put you a good amount in. Start it, water will finish filling as needed, then it will start washing.
You can do it again if needed. If you see a lot of old way to get that stuff to release and be washed away is to add some vegetable oil..not much, like a teaspoon. That old soap will soak up the oil and allow the water to knock it away.

If the pressure switch works and it's telling the water valve, hey shut off...but it won't...because its stuck open.
replace water valve.

Take the 2 or 4 it may have screws off top back, then with your palm of your hand push from front top lid to slide back then it will lift off. Take care Clive
