Answers :

The thermal fuse on the control panel. There isa couple of wires that lead up to a white box with the fuse in it. Thatis the problem. If you are good with a volt meter or light and youplace it across the fuse, if it is bad the light will light or you willread 120V AC(U.S) using a volt meter. Take the bad fuse to an applianceshop and you can get one for $12 with the "white box" and wires.
This is a safety fuse in case the unit overheats to prevent damage

My Frigidaire model FDBB2040FC3 ''acts'' like it starts running when I press start but after just a few moments the Start indicator light goes out and the Hi-Temp Wash and Air Dry lights start flashing... I can hear it ''running'' or doing something but it clearly isn't actually cleaning anything. I've tried cancelling, letting it reset itself and then restarting... even shut it off from the breaker. Each time the problem returns.

I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash 15632/34/37/39. The Pots & Pans button is blinking constantly and I cannot Start the dishwasher. I tried pushing Hi-Temp, then Air Dry, then again. The sequence didn't work for me. If I press the sequence, then the Pots & Pans light blinks along with the Quick Rinse and Cancel buttons. Which combination do I use to get the dishwasher working again, please? Thank you.

How to diagnose? My Kenmore won't run. First it was flashing the clean light 7 times, so I figured out how to reset ("High Temp Scrub"/"Air Dry"/"High Temp Scrub"/"Air Dry"), but when I try to run a wash, it sounds like it's not getting water into the tub. When I checked it several minutes later, it was in "Cancel" mode, making a sound like it was draining (or trying to drain), then the clean light started flashing 7 times again. Clearly, the machine has something wrong but I don't know where to

I have a Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner III (Model GU1200XTKB0). I have used it previously on "Normal" cycle and I always keep it on Air Dry. Last night I used the "Pots and Pans" cycle and it seemed to work fine. But this morning the Air Dry light is flashing and if I press a cycle key the Rinse Only light starts to flash as well. Nothing works. I have made sure that the console is not locked. Any suggestions? I do not have a Heated Dry button, only Air Dry. Thank you.

I have a Whirlpool dishwasher model #DU920PFGQ4. The controls locked light is flashing, and when I press the air dry key for 5 seconds it won't unlock, however the cancel/drain light starts flashing. When I press the cancel key the controls lock light will stop flashing, but will resume as soon as I release the cancel key. I have tried disconnecting power for 24 hours, but as soon as I plug it back up it does the same thing. Nothing else on the control panel will work.

I have a kitchenaid dishwasher, SS, model # KUDIO1ILBL6. When you press the ''normal'' button to run it, nothing happens. Tried other cycles and same thing, the green light goes on above the cycle but its just not starting. I tried resetting by opening, pressing high temp scrub then energy saver dry, high temp scrub, energy save dry, then close and hit cancel. Is there any other combo to reset it? or does it sound like something else is wrong? thanks!

The standard procedure to start the machine is to select a cycle (normal, dry heat, etc) then press the start key. Currently when I select the cycle and the cycle LED is on, pressing the start key does not start the machine. I can press cancel, then start and then choose the cycle and it will work. Also, if I first press the start key, the machine will start and the previous wash cycle selection LED will light up and that cycle will run. Do I have a problem with the keypad or the con
