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


A 15amp automotive fuse is rated for a 12VDC system in an automobile, not a 125VAC houshold electrical system in an appliance. I don't think your automotive fuse can handle the start current being drawn by the main wash pump as the dishwasher starts ... Dishwashers

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 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

Whirlpool DU920PWKB0 Dishwasher We may be in need of a lower dishrack assembly. I noted that this part does not come with the pressure cone. How can one remove the pressure cone from the old rack to insert in the new? I don't want to break it. (Even if I ordered a new rack and a new cone, I'd still have to insert it -- a round part in a square hole.)

I have a Whirlpool DU1055XTSS dishwasher that completely stopped working. I took it apart, found the thermal fuse to be bad, ordered a new, then replaced it and it worked for 2 loads. Now the thermal is open again. What could be "taking it out"? Is the thermal fuse strictly a thermal or does it repsond to current? It's 2 years old, i have already replaced the heating element, the main control board, and now the thermal....twice.

Dishwasher problem Our Asko 1353 dishwasher stops halfway through its's wash cycle. I suspected the thermostat, as it seemed loose in it's holder and not tight against the tub. After I tightened the holder the problem is still the same. Also, the on/off switch (pressure switch?) does not stay in the on position and when I looked it over I found one of the crimp on terminals had melted. Short circuit? Too much resistance from bad thermostat? How do I check the thermostat before I order a new one?


I think your switch may just be bad,but to check the t-stat remove both wires and use a multimeter,set the meter to ohms and connect the two leads to the terminals on the t-stat.with the t-stat to off you should read an (ol) open condition,when you t ... Dishwashers

Hello! I just ordered a new facia panel for our Bosch dishwasher SHU9955UC/U12. It seems like it should be fairly easy to replace it (meaning, myself...). Is it really just a question of unscrewing the screws on the inside of the door, removing the old panel and then replacing the new one? Are there any especially delicate inside mechanisms/parts That should be protected? Many thanks.

The wash pump is leaking, not at the larger joining o-ring seal, but through the vents in the bottom of the motor just past the blade/rotor. Is there a small o-ring inside that is on the shaft that may be leaking? Is there a schematic breakdown of this motor somewhere? I already ordered a new one, and will "play" with the old one to see if I can fix it, just looking for some direction.


The shaft seal has failed. Often the top ball bearing becomes noisy after having the water leak through it. The seal is probably a lip seal rather than an O ring. ... Frigidaire 24 in. PLD3465REC Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

ZANUSSI DA6141 Dishwasher Stops about 10min in, and it blows the fuse in the plug, open the door and water is hot, I change the fuse and set it on drain and it drains ok. I looked at the On/Off Switch it appeared to be discoloured so I ordered a new one changed it with no problem but the dishwasher stopped at exactly the same point (I know this as I marked the dial) Any help would be great thanks Nick

Hole! The heating element burned a hole in the bottom of the tub causing it to flood my basement under the kitchen. It is 2 1/2 years old (out of warrantee) and Sears offered us a 10% discount to purchase a new one! I would never again pay money for a Kenmore product if that is how they stand behind the products. I intend to warn as many people as possible to stay clear!

Unable to fit new door panel to front of dishwasher. Have removed old one with great difficulty and now cannot figure out how to get new one on. Have placed the fittings from old door onto new one in exactly the same place but am baffled as to how it attaches. HELP!

I am trying to replace the GUIDE RAIL BRACKET ASM on my GE dishwasher (model no. GSM1800JWW). How do I either: (a) remove the old brackets, and then install the new ones; or (b) remove the rollers from my new brackets, so that I could slip these rollers onto the old brackets still in the dishwasher, saving the trouble of removing the old brackets in the first place? Either solution would be acceptable, but right now I can't figure out how to do either one without breaking something. Thank you v


Be ready for both . because if they break you can still replace it. but (a) is to me the better choice. let me know how you made out and send me a 4 thumbs post if it works out ... Dishwashers

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

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

Maytag dishwasher MDB8951BWB not drying dishes throughly. Have had several Maytag authorized technicians looking at the dishwasher and saying it is operating normal.
