My dishwasher, a  Kitchen Aid  Superba, Energy Saver V, KDS-20 has been acting up... I have been having to open and shut it several times to get the buttons to engage and start the cycle.  Sometimes the "Preheat" light stays on after a cycle and even if the door is ajar.  One night the I tried to start it and the "Preheat and Wash " lights came on but it did not start the cycle. (The lights were still on in the morning)  When I tried it again  the next day it started and did a perfectly normal cycle.  Could this be some type of door switch or a control panel behind the push buttons?  If it can be determined what is wrong, are parts available? :(

the timer is no longer available unless you can find one on EBAY. the selector switch may be available, some places show it but don't have a price and don't show stock which usually means they don't have it or it's no longer available.

let me do some more checking.

The only part I can find is the door switch. Repair Clinic shows it in stock. Yours may be bad if the lights are staying on with the door open as you say. I would check the switch out .

Door switch Link (if needed)
