Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

The thermal fuse blows out midcycle. It used to occur about every 6 months but is getting more frequent

\015 Our dishwasher keeps blowing the thermal fuse. Model is a Kenmore 66517022401. The frequency of fuse failure is getting more frequent. What is causing this?\015

Answers :

The first thing I would inspect is the heating element for damage that may beginning to short out.

If the element checks out good, a failing motor could blow the fuse.

If the motor checks out, look for shorts in the wiring both in the door and under the unit.

It is hard to be more specific without knowing the make & model and the dishwashers approximate age (years.)

Good Luck! Please report back what you found, OK?

Dishwasher 66513752K601 keeps blowing the thermal fuse. (Bi-Metal W10258275). I have replace the Thermal fuse several times. After i replace the fuse for some reason after a few months or less it will blow it out again. I have also replace the front panel assembly after it stopped working correctly. I would like to know how to test the dishwasher to find out the root cause of the fuse issue. I don't want to be replacing the fuse every time and don't have the $$ to buy a new dishwasher.

Blowing fuse... We've replaced the overheating fuse located in the control board area about 5 times. It has just blown again after using the dishwaser one time--before it would go about a month before blowing the fuse. It seems to get about a few minutes away from completing the wash cycle and does not complete the draining process. Help!! We don't know what to do next--replacing the fuse is costing about $15 each time, before you know it we could have bought a new one! Thanks for the help. Ti


Tim, this blown fuse issue was pretty common on this model. Whirlpool, which made this model came out with a fuse kit that included a terminal and heavier guage wire to eliminate this problem. It just splices right into the control board, easy job. T ... Kenmore 17024 Built-in Dishwasher

KitchenAid dishwasher: KUDS01FL - I have had to replace the fuse every year and now I can't even get through on cycle with the fuse going. It is now dead again! It almost makes it through the full cycle and then stops (fuse blows)- no power - and there is some water left in the bottom which I have to physically remove. I spent a fortune on repairs every year since I bought it and would like to try to avoid another charge. I appreciate any help that you can offer. Thank you, Carol


I would check the pump. It may be slightly jammed or have debris which is causing it not to fully move or cause it to move very hard popping the breaker. Also with a jammed or broken pump, that can also cause water to be left in the bottom of the mac ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI01FLSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

My Whirlpool GU2400XTP dishwasher keeps blowing the fuse. It sat up for 6months because the control panel went out and I couldn't afford to get a new one. Finally replaced the panel and the thermal fuse blew during the first wash cycle. I tried to put a 15AMP fuse in it's place to check it out before I bought a new thermal fuse and it too blew during the first cycle. Any ideas?


Are you replacing the wires along with the fuse? It is important to change the wires too as they are usually the cause for the fuse blowing. Be sure and get the fuse kit that includes the wires. \015\012\015\012Is your water too hot? Hot ... Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher

I have a Whirlpool Quiet Partner 3. It sat up for a few months because the control panel went out and it took a while to save up and order a new one. Now it blew the thermal fuse. I put a 15amp automotive fuse in it to try it, and it runs until it fills up and blows the fuse again. I am trying to figure out how to test the motor and the heating element to see if they are shorted. My local repair shop told me that they want to replace my new panel with their panel first, and that after that
