Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

We have a model KUDM01TJ Serial Number FM0941534. The fuse keeps blowing on the control panel. Where is the fuse and what is the number.


Answers :

Hi There,

You might be experiencing what others may have. Thermal fuse that keeps on blowing up may be caused by the water coming into the unit being too high. The unit has a heating element that heats the water further causing the excess heat forcing the fuse to shut the circuit as a safety measure. Another cause is the heating element may be taking up too much current or is overloading the circuit triggering the fuse to blow. Regardless if it is the first or the second cause, check the wiring of the unit and see if there are loose connections or open wires that may cause a short. A short circuit is also one cause of sudden increase of current blowing a fuse.

Below is a link to show a thermal fuse, yours may be slightly different. The exact part number should be written on the fuse. IT is commonly found behind the unit.

I have a kitchen aid dishwasher model number KUD101TJBLO. I have had the thermal fuse replaced numerous times. It may run two weeks ir it may rub two cycles then the fuse blows. My serviceman has given up on finding a solution.He has replaced the control board and the door switch. However it continues blowing the fuse.

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 own a whirlpool gold model #GU980SCGQ3 . After the rinse cycle the dishwasher stopped . The water has not drained out and nothing on the control panel works when you press the buttons. The breaker did not blow on our main fuse panel in the house. Something similar happened a year after we bought it and the electrical panel had to be replaced under warranty. Is this the same problem? or something different?

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

Customer bought house with a Viking Dishwasher already there. He has no user manuals or documentation with the model number listed. None of the stickers on the side of the door have a Viking model number. This unit is a Quiet Clean System with Auto Water Heating and is (he thinks) about two years old. How can I find out what the model # might be or better yet how do I find out the part # to fix the main control board / interface. It just keeps blinking.


Check the back of the unit for a tag.... otherwise - removing the clock... it should have a part number on it.\015\012\015\012Thanks! ... Dishwashers

I have a Kenmore Elite Dishwasher Model 665.13773K600. It seems to have no power to the touch pad (top) control panel. I have already checked the circuit breaker and the power to the dishwasher. A friend said that it may perhaps be the thermo fuse cut out that needs to be replaced. 1) Is this true? 2) How can I remove the 1" thick control panel touch pad after removing the six screws- it seems to be stuck, and I don't want to break the plastic touchpad.

I have a Kenmore undercounter dishwasher..model 665.16022400. The "normal wash" light keeps blinking..nothing will work on it..I tried reseting didn't work, killed the breaker for a while, didn't work. I tool the panel off and reseated the ribbon connection to the electronic board..didn't work. I'm not sure if I should be replacing the electronic board, or the control panel that contains the buttons. None of the buttons appear to be stuck. thanks - Andrew
