How to reset a Kitchenaid Dishwasher

KitchenAid and Bosch dishwashers are both excellent and offer good value for the money. But aside from similarities in the wash cycle options and their stainless steel interiors, Bosch dishwashers edge out KitchenAid in design, functionality, cleaning performance, reliability, and even price.

A variety of issues can occur that affect your Kitchenaid dishwasher’s operation, and many can be fixed with a simple reset or reboot of the dishwasher’s controller. Most dishwashers have a way to reset by pressing the appropriate buttons.

The simplest way to clear some of these issues is to cut power by switching off the breaker to the dishwasher, waiting a few seconds, and then restoring power. If this does not work, follow the procedure below.

Resetting your Kitchenaid Dishwasher

Perform the following steps in order-

Total Time: 2 minutes

  1. Close the dishwasher’s door.

  2. Press two buttons, one after the other, at least five times each for a total of 10 presses

    The dishwasher will make some noises as it resets.
    After doing so, you should see the lights on the control panel display flash repeatedly for 4-5 seconds.
