Having problems with your Kenmore 24 in. 17482 / 17484 / 17489 Built-in Dishwasher ?

Completely dead. breaker is fine. have live power at dishwasher. ???? Replaced heater, pump and check valve last year. No obvious burnt or disconnected wires.


Answers :

There is a thermal fuse located behind the operator console on nearly all Kenmore or Whirlpool manufactured dishwashers. There were some noted problems with certain model dishwashers where the wire gauge on the thermal fuse was too small and would heat up causing the thermal fuse to blow prematurely. There is a replacement kit available that includes a wire harness with a larger gauge wire that you simply splice in place. It handles current better and prevents the fuse from blowing prematurely. To ease your mind, there were no reports of fire hazard.

If you need to view a diagram of your dishwasher, enter your model number at the website mentioned for some excellent exploded view illustrations. The thermal fuse is usually listed under the "Control Panel Parts" heading.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

I bought this dishwasher 5 years ago and was kept in the box until last month. I installed it, turned on the water and no water is being pumped into the unit from the water release valve in the dishwasher. I then checked all the cycles and everything works except for the pump. Then I checked to see if any power/volts was going to the pump and there is none. Could it be a wiring problem or could it be the circuit board?? please help. thanks


You will have to check all the connections visually. Since you know how to use a meter, see where the current stops. See if there is current coming from the control board to the pump. the water inlet solenoid valve should "free flow" water into the m ... GE 24 in. Profile PDW7800 Built-in Dishwasher

My Hotpoint diswasher suddenly stopped working last night. It seems like it has no power to it, as the motor or pump does not seem to come on at all. Obviously when I get home from work, I will check the obvious first - making sure it has power to it, connections are secure etc. (I had a wire break before) If it does have power, I would assume checking the door switch and timer is next. Any suggestions, and any suggestions for checking the door switch and timer??


Sounds like your on the right track. I would use an ohmeter to check the resistance of the door switch by placing the meter probes on each side of the switch. Test while opened and closed position. Same with timer ... Hotpoint Dishwashers

Hi. I have a 3 year old LG dishwasher. It will not drain. Display shows OE. I completely cleaned the drain assembly inside the DW. I checked the discharge line, it is completely clean. I disconnected the drain line from the air vent assembly at the sink and ran the DW, still will not drain. I disconnected the discharge pump wires and ran current directly, the pump works. I replaced the main control PCB, still will not drain. Please advise. Thanks


Measure the electric resistance of the Drain Motor. (Value should be 20-40 Ohms) If it is out of spec, replace it.\015\012\015\012Please reply with what worked best. Thanks! ... LG 24 in. LDF 7811 Built-in Dishwasher

My Beko D3422 FS was washing normally and the residual current device tripped approximately half way through the cycle. I have unplugged the dishwasher and checked the plug socket with various other appliances. None have tripped the RCD. I have stripped the Dishwasher to look for any disconnected terminals or shorted wires and cannot find anything obviously burnt or any signs of shorting. The 13amp fuse in the dishwasher plug is fine. Are there any components I can test or replace which wouldgi

Honda GC190 no start. Unit has been sitting for 2 years. Drained old gas, cleaned the carb. No go. New plug gapped to 0.030in. Still nothing. spark seems good. Cleaned the fuel strainer and there IS a bit of vacuum at the fuel pump when cranking. Poured a dab of gas into combustion chamber.. Still won't "talk to me" AT ALL. Removed valve cover and checked the valves.. within specs and nothing sticking or hanging up. Timing belt and cam looks good. Took a peak at the coil.. air gap in specs. 1ohm

Have a Kenmore dishwasher #665.1677993, approx. 13 years old. Upon starting new cycle the pump turns on for a few short seconds, then off, then after a couple minutes it goes on again for a few seconds then off, then later in the cycle it does stay on for a longer period of time. In conjuntion with this intermitent problem it has begun leaking out the bottom of the front door. I have checked drain line, check valve, strainer/screen and vent in the door. I assume it is an electrical issue?

The dishwasher is cutting out the mains rcd switch when running? This happened during an intensive wash now as soon as you switch the on switch it trips the cut out! I have checked the both pumps for earth or neutral leaks and also the the heater but all seem fine. I only have a multi meter at my disposal so therefore cannot do a proper earth leak check. the machine is approx four years old and is not used very often.

The dishwasher is not letting water in....it sounds like the pump is trying as per normal, but no water is coming in. it is very difficult to pull the dishwasher out to check the water tap, however,tap is on and was working last night. is there a check that i can do within the dishwasher that i do not need to haul it out from the worksurface? i do not have the model, but it is 8 years old, integrated.

Maytag MDB6600AWW Unit is approx 3 years old it was finishing a load and stopped part way through sticking on heated dry. I don't know if it was there in the cycle or if the diagnostics on the board sent the message there. The light now will not shut off or move from the heated dry. I have disconnected 120 volts, removed the panel to check wiring, removed board and reassembled nothing resets the heated dry light and nothing works. I have gone through manual function test, sales floor demo test,

Hello, I have a CONSTRUCTA S9W1C dishwasher with aquastop. Unfortunately, I tried once to start it with the house water supply closed. Of course it stopped after a few seconds. After that time, when I start it, the water pumps works and after some seconds the cycle stops. It gets no water. I've checked and noticed that no water passes through the aquastop valve. The aqua stop has two wires that get into the dishwasher. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you for your time Alex

SHX46B I have a 4 year old Dishwasher that filled up with clean water on it's own and leaked on the floor. There appears to ba a float switch switch on the very bottom of the unit that runs the pump if this happens. It won't stop until I remove the water caught in the plastic base on the very bottom of the unit. Drain is clear and this machine has worked fine until now. I'm thinking it may be a bad or leaky fill valve but how can I check?

Hi I have a Neff built in dishwasher s5453X1GB/70 about 4 years old. Never had a problem before. Came downstairs last night to find the kitchen floor flooded. Water also still in machine. But must have been near end of cycle as plates all clean. I have read other links and opened pump compartment in centre of machine and syringed out all water and cleaned fan. When i switch on machine it is still making odd humming noise (emptying cycle?) I have read about anti -flood valve etc. Any more tip

Low Pressure with no hose attached, pressure is good, attach hose without wand and pressure drops 50%. Have had pump apart 10 times, have checked bypass valve, have even removed bypass and filled passage way so water could not bypass wihout any change. Am down to thinking pump casting is cracked allowing bypassing to happen. Does each of the three piston chambers have a check valve so one piston is not pumping back into another piston chamber?

I have a leak from the pressure washer output manifold and sears model 580752050. (pump model mtpv93517) The check valve kit Briggs and Stratton # 193806gs I ordered was correct from but the check valves are too tall to seat into the output manifold and be flush when reinstalling. Did I order the wrong check valve kit or is there another problem?

The water is not draining from machine, although the pump is obviously trying. It doesn't sound quite right. Kind of a growling noise. It can pump water into tubs when experimenting with ideas, but can't pump hard enough to pump the water into the sink. This is all done with the hose removed so we could check for debris in the line. I've checked the filters and they are clean and clear. This is a used machine a friend gave me, and it's been working beautifully until now.
