\015 Power to unit is good, just seems to be dead. i vaugly remember this happening when it was new the repair part was minimal. is there a relay or fuse to check in the door\015

Answers :

The dishwasher should have a thermal fuse mounted to the control board behind the operator console. It is a small silver colored device\015\012attached to a white plastic bracket. In some model dishwashers the\015\012wrong gage wiring was used causing the wires to heat up and trip the\015\012thermal fuse. There was no apparent risk of fire or anything like that,\015\012but the thermal fuses didn't tolerate the heat differential too well. A\015\012fix for the problem was to purchase a thermal fuse replacement kit\015\012(found at most appliance repair stores) that had thicker wires. The\015\012part number for the thermal fuse kit is 959376 and the price is $16.85. You can find it at\015\012repairclinic.com. Order on line and have the part shipped directly to\015\012you. Now...to access the control board perform the following:
\015\012\011\011\011\015\012\015\012
\015\0121. Turn off the main breaker to the dishwasher. This is important. Even\015\012though the dishwasher is not running, the control board still has live\015\012voltages present.
\015\0122. Open dishwasher door and remove the top screws that hold the console\015\012in place. You shouldn't have to remove the lower screws unless you plan\015\012on removing the entire door panel.
\015\0123. The control panel should pull off from the front enough to where you\015\012can access the control board. There is a thermal fuse mounted on the\015\012board with two wire leads going to it. The fuse is silver in color and\015\012mounted to a plastic bracket which is mounted to the control board.
\015\0124. Cut the wires on the old fuse and splice the new fuse kit to it.\015\012Leave plenty of wire to accommodate. There will be instructions included\015\012with your replacement kit. Ensure you follow the direction thoroughly\015\012and tighten the wire lug screws securely.
\015\012
\015\012NOTE: Do not attempt to reuse the existing wires by simply unplugging\015\012the old fuse and replacing it with the new one (been there). The fuse\015\012will eventually blow again. Follow the instructions provided and you\015\012can't go wrong.
\015\012
\015\012If you have any further questions, or if you run into trouble during your repairs, let me know. Good luck to you.
\015\012
\015\012PS If you do not wish to order on line, take the part number I provided you to any major appliance repair shop and they SHOULD have the part available. This is a known problem and a common fail item.

My Kenmore Elite suddenly stopped filling with water.
