Your KitchenAid dishwasher is equipped with advanced features to enhance your dishwashing experience. However, encountering Error Code 10-1 or FAE1 can be a signal of a detergent dispenser failure. Here’s a detailed breakdown of this error and steps to resolve it:

Error Description:

Error Code 10-1 or FAE1 specifically points to a malfunction in the detergent dispenser. This component is crucial for dispensing detergent at the right time during the wash cycle. When the dishwasher detects an issue with the dispenser, it triggers this error code.

Troubleshooting Steps:

  1. Disconnect Power: Unplug the dishwasher to ensure your safety during the inspection and repair process.
  2. Remove Outer Door Panel: Carefully take off the outer door panel to access the internal components.
  3. Check Wiring Connections: Inspect the wiring connections between the electronic control board and the detergent dispenser. Identify any loose wires and reconnect them securely.
  4. Inspect Wire Harness: Examine the wire harness for any visible damage or wear. If the harness is damaged, replace it with a new one to ensure proper connectivity.
  5. Replace Detergent Dispenser: If the wiring is intact and the issue persists, the detergent dispenser itself might be faulty. Replace the detergent dispenser with a new, compatible unit to restore proper functionality.
