Kitchenaid Dishwasher Error Code 9-2 or F9E2
If your KitchenAid dishwasher displays Error Code 9-2 or F9E2, it signifies a problem with the diverter motor. Specifically, the diverter motor, responsible for directing water flow during the wash cycle, is stuck in the “on” position. This issue is often associated with a defective diverter relay on the electronic control board.
- Stuck Diverter Motor: The diverter motor, which controls the water flow between the upper and lower spray arms, is stuck in the activated position.
- Defective Diverter Relay: The electronic control board’s diverter relay, responsible for regulating the diverter motor, is malfunctioning.
- Power Off and On:
- Turn off the dishwasher and unplug it from the electrical outlet.
- Wait for a few minutes before plugging it back in and turning it on.
- Retry the dishwasher to see if the error persists.
- Inspect for Obstructions:
Examine the spray arms and surrounding areas for any debris or foreign objects that may be obstructing the movement of the diverter motor.
- Check Diverter Motor:
If accessible, inspect the diverter motor for any physical obstructions or damage. Manually attempt to move the motor to ensure it is not mechanically stuck.
Replacement of Electronic Control Board:
- Since the diverter relay issue is linked to the electronic control board, replacing the entire board is recommended.
- Unplug the dishwasher to disconnect electrical power before replacing the electronic control board.
- Consult the dishwasher’s manual or seek professional help to ensure the correct replacement part is used.
Addressing Error Code 9-2 or F9E2 promptly is crucial to ensure the smooth functioning of your KitchenAid dishwasher.Schedule Appointment
