Kitchenaid Dishwasher Error Codes

Kitchenaid Dishwasher Error Code 1-2 or F1E2

When your KitchenAid dishwasher displays Error Code 1-2 or F1E2, it signifies a challenge with the appliance’s internal memory on the control board. This error is often associated with damaged or corrupted memory and the presence of incompatible software components within the microprocessor.

  1. Damaged Control Board Memory: Over time, wear and tear or electrical issues may compromise the integrity of the control board’s memory.
  2. Incompatible Software Components: An internal conflict within the microprocessor due to incompatible software components can trigger this error.

Troubleshooting Steps:

  1. Power Cycle the Dishwasher:
    • Shut off power to the dishwasher by unplugging it or turning off the circuit breaker.
    • Allow the dishwasher to remain without power for at least 5 minutes.
  2. Restore Power:
    • After the 5-minute interval, restore power to the dishwasher.
    • Observe if the error code reappears on the display.
  3. Code Persistence:
    • If the error code returns upon restoring power, it indicates a persistent issue.
  4. Professional Assessment:
    • Given the complex nature of control board-related errors, it is advisable to seek professional assistance.
  5. Control Board Replacement:
    • If deemed necessary by the technician, replacing the electronic control board may be the ultimate solution.
    • A damaged control board may hinder the dishwasher’s performance and functionality.
