Question about Kenmore 24 in. 17602 / 17604 / 17609 Built-in Dishwasher
My dishwasher has power to it. WE checked the thermal fuse it has no continuity. What caused that?? Should we check something else?? Thanks. Gina
Gina, you probably blew a thermal fuse that sits on the control board. Easy fix. Have your husband first check the wiring to the dishwasher. Remove the toe panel and make sure the wire nut connections are good. If that is ok, he will have to remove the inner door screws to get to the control board. Lift out the inner door. Remove the control board cover, it just snaps off. He will see the thermal fuse on the upper right side. I will attach a photo of what it looks like...Catriver...post back

mantal, first thing I would check would be the power connections. I have seen a lot of these fuses blown because of loose wire nuts to line and nuetral. If that is ok, suspect one of the componets overheating. Ohm out the motor windings, with the capacitor disconnected. Should be around 3-7 ohms, run windings, 6-10 aux. windings. Check the tech sheet behind the toe panel to make sure. Next, heater element. Look for damaged element. Should ohm at 10 to 30 ohms. Leads disconnected, power off on all tests. Look for any loose connection on any harnesses. Catriver

Yeah, I have a similar problem. I tried to go into a suggested diagnostic run, but that didn't yield anything. I tried pushing the Sani-Rinse and Air Dry buttons back and forth a number of times. Didn't help.
At first I thought the lock-on had accidently been engaged, but disengaging the "child lock" doesn't help. The lock-on light comes back on and sometimes blinks rapidly. I"ve counted around 7 rapid blinks at times and 3 rapid blinks at other times--in case that makes a difference. The control panel doesn't work--in other words, the dishwasher does not start, even when I can successfully get other lights to come on. I don't want to spend >$100. for a new control panel if that is not really the problem.

There will be a thermal fuse located on the electronic control board housing that may have failed.This replaceable part (gray or white) is clipped on to the side of the plastic housing.

The thermal fuse is located in the front control panel where the circuit board is. You need to remove 4 screws(depending on the type of dishwasher you have) and you will see it. Make sure you change everything not just the fuse but the new wires also.
Hope this fixes your problem
