Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I have model number KUD 101TJBL0. I have spent about 300.00 on repairs. It keeps blowing the thermal fuse. I have had it replaced sev. times. My repair man has given up on solving the problem. I did read on another website that you need to replace the wiring kit that comes with the fuse. Me service man never did that and when I asked him about it he said that is not the problem and would not replace it. So, before I just scrap my diswasher and but a new one I thought i would order another fuse k

Hi,

This applies mainly to Kenmore Dishwashers with the model number\015\012665.15835791 but also to any Whirlpool or Kenmore dishwasher with an\015\012electronic display. There are several possible trouble makers on this\015\012dishwasher that can cause this problem and we'll go through the most\015\012common ones.\015\012

1.Bad Door Latch Switches.

There 2 switches you can buy them from online vendors.


2. Blown Thermal Fuse\015\012

The thermal fuse is located in the control panel, called out as\015\012item #18 in this picture. You can check it with a simple continuity\015\012test. Or you can jumper it out to see if the dishwasher will start\015\012running normally. If it's bad,

\015\012

3.Control board problems can stem from **** and noise in the\015\012dishwasher's electrical supply which make the electronics on the\015\012control board go flakey. This problem has been documented by Whirlpool\015\012in a tech memo (if your Kenmore model number begins with 665 then, yes,\015\012Whirlpool made your dishwasher). Or, it could just be a bad control\015\012board, plain n' simple.

The above one is a generic solution, also applicable for Kitchenaid Dishwashers.

The best online vendor as per user reviews :-

My GU2500XTPSO would not start. The panel wouldn't light up. My husband ordered and replaced the thermal fuse but the new fuse burned out immediately. Can you help? It will not start or light up. Should I look at another problem causing the thermal fuse to burn out?

I have a Maytag QuietSeries 300 dishwasher. My original problem was with the control panel lights not coming on. Another repair website recommended replacing the circuit board. We replaced the board, but it did not solve the problem & the dishwasher would not work. Replaced the control panel. Lights come on, but when the start button is pushed "21" flashes on the time display. What do I do?

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

We were told then that that a wire from the motor was wrong and thats when we called in another person. That person said the board was bad and they couldn't work on it. We are in Lancaste

My wife opened door during cycle. When she closed door it would no longer run. Looking at problems and recomendations on similar models, I replaced the board. Did not fix the problem. I have checked the fuse and the door switches for continuity and all seem ok. The only lights on the panel that come on are: under cycle- Pots & Pans, Light. Under Options - Heated dry. No other lights work and the dishwasher does not operate.

Yes. There are 6x screws holding the control panel take them out and you will see the board. There should be a thermal/ or bi metal fuse attached to the board.

I have a Maytag DWU8250BAX and the thing leaks like crazy. I just replaced the door gasket, but that is not the problem. When I took a closer look at the door it seems as though the water is getting up and into the door through a space in the bottom of the door. It seems to me like there should be another door seal to fill a gap that sits between the door hinges. If anyone knows if there should be a seal here and then what the part number might be that would be great. Thanks!

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
