Asea 1302 blows fuse during rince cycle


Hi Gordon

I would check the fuse closely.
Did it blow with splatter
or was it like a melted wire.

This is the difference between momentary overload
or dead short.

Replace the fuse with a slightly higher amp rating (say 5) to see if a dead short is happening.
Sometimes motors get loaded momentarily and draw slightly more than the fuse rating.

If it continues then the motor is drawing too much.
Eg. water in the windings or windings insulation breakdown.

Contact an electrician to do a current load with an AC Ammeter.
Or take it to a service agent.

Good Luck

Dishwasher has no power to control panel and fused spur arcing


You state that the fused area was arcing. Any time you have arcing, in time that area will carbon up and stop working. Sound like a loose fuse holder or bad connection in that area. Shut off power, remove fuse and clean area completely. make sure fuse fits tight in holder. Check all connections where you noticed the arcing for black areas that are burned.

Zanussi Dishwasher DA6152 Blowing Main Fuse


A guess is that the water has leaked into the motor, and the machine is shorting out.
As a retired firefighter, may I please recommend you do not try to start it again?
It could start a fire.
It is probably time to buy another dishwasher.
Be blessed.

The fuse keep on blowing after few minute of use in electrolux dishwasher ESl4114


Hi, the most common fault on a washing machine is when the heating element is breaking down it will cause a trip or a fuse to go because it is a "resistive load" i.e a small short circuit.
Try to put your washer through a cold wash cycle if it completes the cycle without blowing the fuse then you know that you need a new element. If it still blows the fuse then you are looking at most likely a motor problem.

My Samsung DMR77LHS dishwasher has lost power completely near the end of a cycle. About an inch of water remains. I have power to the unit. I checked the 15 amp fuse in the unit - it had blown. I replaced...


Hi, whenever a fuse of that magnitude, or any fuse really, Blows, you should never just replace it, as to have any device, blow a fuse, trip a breaker, requires a major fault, they do NOT blow spontaneously ever. So you have had a major short circuit inside your machine, at some stage, usually this is in, the main Controller Board, most likely the bridge rectifier has gone short circuit, or a capacitor, But it could be anything even the motor?anything like this then will blow the fuse. The reason the fuse blow is to prevent a fire and explosion or both, as if an unlimited amount of current could be drawn, it would be catastrophic, so a fuse blows to disconnect the power. The Cause of this MUST be discovered before one ever attempts to replace the fuse. Luckily, it seems in this case the fault has blown an open circuit on the main Board, and this has prevented any further trouble.
Really after such an event as this one should engage the services of a professional, as anyone untrained may mis something that later on my even prove fatal. Get this unit looked at by a professional service person, ask for a 'Quote" if concerned about costings, then you can make an informed decision as to what to do.

The thermal fuse blows out midcycle. It used to occur about every 6 months but is getting more frequent


The first thing I would inspect is the heating element for damage that may beginning to short out.

If the element checks out good, a failing motor could blow the fuse.

If the motor checks out, look for shorts in the wiring both in the door and under the unit.

It is hard to be more specific without knowing the make & model and the dishwashers approximate age (years.)

Good Luck! Please report back what you found, OK?

Thermal fuse for Whirlpool Quiet Partner II


while it is possible that something could be drawing too much current, it is not likely to cause the "thermal" fuse to blow. what i would like to know is, did you use the wiring kit made by whirlpool to replace the wiring? if not then you probably arent getting a good enough connection on the thermal fuse itself.
what causes a thermal fuse to fail is ... get this... too much heat. so a loose connection is the most likely cause. check with your parts house and see if they can find the right repair kit that comes with a wiring replacement with the thermal fuse.
