Fuses blown & controller card fried

\015 Had Service technicians out 7 times to house over last 6 months. Have had motor, coil and controller card(2x) and fuse replaced(6x). This thing is a joke. Home line voltage is 125V which my electric company says is within spec(+/- 10% from 120VAC). Appliance Tech said controller board is only rated for 127VAC. Not sure that is the problem(or if he is even correct), will look into electrical grounding issue as well. My old dishwashed never had any problem like this for 7 years, it was loud so we bought the Kitchenaid, which cannot run without blowing fuses.\015

Answers :

Take this from a 4 board and 9 fuse owner.I believe the ceramic thermal fuse does not blow quick enough and during voltage spikes,or under a load cause overheating of the control board.All my boards had burnt marks on the back of the board(apposite where the 4 prong plug goes).I purchased a new board ,new ceramic fuse with the wire.They say the wire must be replaced too.(Ebay under Whilpool dishwasher fuse 14.00) Next on Ebay I purchased a 15 amp marine push button circuit breaker which I mounted in the side of the front panel.Split the one leg going to the ceramic fuse,run it to one of the legs of the breaker and run the other side of the breaker leg back to the ceramic fuse.I know someone out there is saying you don't need the ceramic fuse if you have the breaker in the line.Humor me.Lets say you get a large surge that fries the breaker closed as in a lightning storm.The ceramic fuse may save the day.Since I have set ours up this way the breaker trips once in a blue moon.Reset it and your off and running again.Oh and don't bother calling Whilpool(makers of Kitchenaid) You can't get anywhere with them.Now if for some unfortunate reason this doesn't solve your problem,don't throw away that dishwasher.Remove the upper and lower baskets,bolt them to the trunk of your car and the next time you go to the car wash bring your dishes with you.LOL

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

No Power Hey everyone, I have power at the wall, but no power at the dishwasher. the garbage disposal is on the same circuit and it is working. I pulled the fuse behind the control panel after cussing several times seeing that I broke the ribbon cable for the buttons in the process. I do not know how to visually tell if the fuse is blown. Thanks,

My kitchen aid dishwasher model # kudpo1flss3 stopped near the end of a cycle and now it is not responding or indicating power at the control panel. It has a little bit of water left in the tub but must have been close to completion as the dishes were clean. The breaker is on & there is power up to the connection @ the appliance.

Kudc10fxss4 I have a KitchenAid KUDC10FXSS4 w/o any power. Circuit breaker is on, and it's getting power. But there are no lights on the display. I called a parts place to see if I could order a thermal cut off fuse. But the representative stated there is no fuse listed for this model. Any ideas on what would be causing a loss of power?

IDL750 - Fuse trips when turned on. HELP! We had some electricians here to install a new electrical socket for a new fridge. They put the new socket in the same wiring as for my existing dishwasher!! The first time I tried to start the dishwasher cycle with the new fridge plugged in, the circuit box fuse tripped. Now, even with the fridge turned off, the dishwasher makes the fuse trip when turned on. Is there a fuse inside the dishwasher that has blown and needs to be replaced? or a ground brea

I have a kitchen aid dishwasher model number KUD101TJBLO. I have had the thermal fuse replaced numerous times. It may run two weeks ir it may rub two cycles then the fuse blows. My serviceman has given up on finding a solution.He has replaced the control board and the door switch. However it continues blowing the fuse. I read on the internet that you need to replace the entire wiring kit that comes with the fuse but my repairman says this will not fix the problem and refused to replace the kit.

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

My Whirlpool wdf530payw dishwasher is not draining. I ran the service diagnostics using the control panel, and the code that came back was Function code 8, and Error code 2 "Drain Motor Electrical Problem". The possible causes listed are: a. Loose Connection in drain motor circuit, and/or open drain motor winding. b. Open Fuse on control to drain motor c. Faulty drain motor drive circuit on the control When I hit the "Cancel/Drain" button there's an faint buzzing sound for about 2 minut

Hi I have the Kitchenaid dishwasher KUDIO1FLSS2 and all the buttons work except the two most important ones, the heavy and normal cycle. I had a service person out about 6 mo. ago and he said the control panel was about to go bad and replaced a fuse. He ended up coming again a week later and replacing the fuse with a stronger fuse. Now it's acting up again and I'm sick of hand washing dishes and don't feel like handing over another $300 or more if I can do it myself or maybe I just need to buy a

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

Hi I have a whirlpool diswasher which is about 7 uears old which has blown the fuse (and the mains trip) half way through a cycle. Replaceing the fuse has resulted not resulted in the restoring of power to the unit. Is there anything simple I could check (in line fuses etc.)? Cheers
