Question about KitchenAid 23 in. KUDD01DPPA Stainless Steel Dishwasher
Dishwasher stopped mid cycle, left dirty water at bottom of d/w. Plug outlet not working now and outlet that works doesn't power the d/w. Did I have an electrical problem that ruined the d/w?
Check your thermal fuse. The fuse is located inside the control panel on or near the main control board. It will be a bullet shaped component mounted with a white plastic clip with two wires leading from it. The fuse should read a short if good. Now...keep in mind, if the fuse blew it is usually for a reason. Replacing it may or may not correct your problem. In some model dishwashers there was a thermal fuse kit that was required to be installed which involved cutting the wires and using a wire splice to connect the new fuse. It seems that there was a design flaw where the gauge wire used in manufacturing would cause the thermal fuse to blow prematurely due the wire overheating. I can't remember if this applies to KitchenAid, but I believe it does. You may inquire about this at your local parts store. I hope this helps you.

I don't know your technical ability, but there is a fuse located next to the control board inside the console, this is a good place to start. Kitchen Aid is good about putting tech sheets on the back of the kickplate and it should have wiring and diagnostic info there. Just be sure to put the sheets back so the next service tech to work on it will have them :)

There is a thermal fuse located in the control panel inside the door. It could be blown, but if so what caused it. they come with a retrofit pigtail to prevent loose connectins on the fuse. You may have a short somewhere in the dryer, and just blow the fuse again. Could be bad motor,fill valve, or heater, or even the control board. I'd try one fuse first.
