Most likely the problem with your dish washer is bad key pad. It is not repairable and has to be replaced. Whirlpool does not sell it separate and you have to by the whole console assembly. The price range is between $95 and $115 (different colors) and it is not very complicated to replace it. I can help you with the complete step by step instructions and, if you provide the complete model number of your dish washer, I get the part number and the best price for you.

    try this also..

    you have a thermal electronic fuse that sits on the side of the control
    board. More than likley this fuse has blown. You will have to remove
    the screws on the inside door and seperate the panel. The control will
    have a cover that will unsnap. On the control board you will see the
    fuse toward the right mounted to the top side. Part number for the fuse
    is 8269213. Why don't you look up the part on the net so you can
    identify what your looking for. Make sure to cut power to the
    dishwasher before going in there

    Most common d/w power is 120 volts, check for 120 volts with a volt meter at the main power harness where it enters into the dishwasher, you will have to remove the lower access panels to get to the power box. Dishwashers also have at least one and most newer dishwashers have two door switches that must be checked. You will find then behind the console at the door latch area.

When your dishwasher doesn't work at all, check these

Power from the house Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.

Timer or selector switch Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.

Dishwasher not working, no lights on control panel

If your good with electricity get a meter and with the unit unplugged check the resistance across the thermal switch... it should be 0.0 ohms(omega symbol) if a thermal switch is blown it will be open. and read unlimited ohms... I doubt if it is the thermal switch. Check first if you have voltage to the control board you should have lights on it. If no light then probably The door interlock switch has failed,, that is the first thing that I would suspect as I had that happen on one of my units... figure out how to bypass it or operate it.

Control panel not lighting

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

I understand by reading your post which indicates it is a KitchenAid KUDS02FRSS
you appear to have a concern with no power to the control, manifesting in the control panel not lighting, correct ?

The one thing I'd suggest is the thermal fuse, typically the symptom you've described is associated with a bad thermal fuse. (part #
Here's a helpful link below to a video from "" to assist in changing (or simply checking it as shown in the second link) the fuse generalizes on most Whirlpool built dishwasher's such as yours, but if slightly different it is essentially the same.

I'll watch for your reply and try and help going forward. Hopefully this will provide you with the solution you seek, but please keep me posted if not.

I own a KUDS01FLSS3 KitchenAid dishwasher. The lights on the control panel do not come on and a cycle can not be started. There is about an inch of water in the bottom of the dishwasher basin and it looks...


The problem with the unit is the thermal cut-out/fuse has tripped. You'll need to purchase the replacement kit #959376. It should be available at most local parts retailers, or online parts depots as well. (double check with your model number, but that is the most common)

**Be sure to use the entire kit**.

You'll notice there are new wires to the fuse to be spliced into existing ones, this is to ideally prevent the problem from re-occuring. (follow the instructions provided, you'll be fine)

If the problem does re-occure in the near future, you'll need the control, #1060952

hope that helps,

Good Luck

It's not getting any power to it, but the outlets are working.

most dish washers do not come prewired for power connection. customer or installer provides "pigtail" the part you plug in. Unplug unit, remove kick panel,, follow pigtail to connection bod and remove cover. cut off wire nuts, restrip wires and install new wire nuts

Lights on control will not work,water in tub, no power

I've had this problem. There is in control panel circuit area, a thermal cutoff device. It is like a fuse, but creates an open circuit when it gets too hot. You can't reset it, you have to replace it. It looks like a resistor with a cone shape at one end and is often installed in a small plastic housing the size of a scrabble tile. It usually goes in series with the switch that detects whether the dishwasher door is open or closed. It is often a replaceable item set in a little plastic holder. ($17 at our local appliance store) or if you're experience in doing minor appliance repairs, you can buy the termal cut off device at Radio Shack for less than $2 and then remove the old old one from the plastic holder and solder in a new one. (Solder to the two connectors in the plastic housing) You have to use some sort of heat sink on the leads of the thermal cut off while soldering it in, otherwise it will 'open' the thermal device because of the heat of the soldering iron. I use a pair of pliers with an elastic around the grip area to keep it holding tight to the thrermal cut out leads.

If you buy this device from Radio Shack you have to know what temperature you want it to 'open' at. You can find this in the manual for your washer, or look it up online. Mine was 110 degrees farenheit and I was able to replace it with a 128 degree termal cut out from Radio Shack.

Have power to the control panel but the thing don't work????

I take it nothing lights up at all? In the 665 it is very common for the thermal fuse to go out. It should be on the control panel with 2 wires coming out of it with spade terminals. Disconnect that and see if there is continuity

Kitchen aide dishwasher KUD101IL control panel not working

1. Check plug outlet.
2. Check electrical box underneath the d/w where power cord connected to d/w (you have to take the kick panel off . The box located on right side). Sometime you can find burn wire there.
3. Check the thermal fuse on computer board. It is inside the control panel on right hand side. The fuse has 2 white plastic connector which sticks out, easy to find.

Unit is dead: does not appear to have power

Hello chicagogunn,

You said,Your unit stopped working mid-cycle. You have verified that there is power to unit. Is there an internal fuse which could have been tripped? None of the lights on the control panel currently light.

There is a thermal fuse!
Go to this repair web site I listed below and you will see the diagram
1. Diagram Page 02 - CONTROL PANEL PARTS
2. The thermal fuse is, Item # 6 on the diagram.
3. Click on page two on the left at this site.
4. And then in the upper right corner it says Open This Diagram in a New Window

6 8193762 Fuse, Thermal Electronic In-Stock $ 13.25
Let me know how you do!!
Please remember to leave a rating!!!!

Here are four things that the repair manual says to check.
Burnt or broken wires
Check for burnt or broken wires. This would include the wires on the timer and door switch. Also check the wiring connection where the main power connects to the machine.

2. Defective Timer
The timer is a series of switches that controls all machine functions. If one of the contacts in the timer is defective, the machine will lose that function. knowledge of the the use of a volt /ohmmeter is essential to testing the timer as well as the ability to read the timer sequence chart that is supplied with the machine. In most cases this requires a professional technician

3.Door switch
The door switch is wired in series with all components on the machine. If the door switch is defective, the machine will do nothing. Check the door switch for continuity

4.No Electrical power

Ensure that the proper voltage is being supplied to the appliance. Check the breakers or fuses that are supplying the power to the appliance electrical outlet. You can use a voltmeter to test for voltage at the electrical outlet.

Thank you Huuum
