I have a three year old Whirlpool Dishwasher DU1148XTP which is making a load flickering noise when it release the soap during the wash cycle. I removed the front panel and looks like it small solinoid that had a part number 91127.00.1404504 120V 60Hz making all the racket.

I have a not quite 2 year old Kenmore dishwasher model #665.1322.(I believe built by Whirlpool) The motor has burnt out. That seems ridiculous to me when there is just my husband & I using it and I've had dishwashers in the past that have lasted 10 - 15 years. Anyways - we have no warranty so we thought we would try to replace th motor - but I can't find anything online. We live in south western Ontario - any suggestions of where we could find a replacement motor?

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.
