Question about Kenmore 17459 Free-standing Dishwasher
I have a kenmore free standing dishwasher has ran fine for 3 yaers but 2 weeks ago blew thermo fuse leaving water in bottom of unit. I pulled front panel found blown thermo fuse and raplaced it. Dishwasher ran fine for 1 week but did same thing last night. dishes appear clean like it ran full cycle but failed before rinse water pumped out. Thermo fuse is blown again, so before putting another new one in and not finding problem I am looking for trouble shooting advice. would partially clogged water drain cause wiring high enough amp draw to blow fuse. As it appears that wash went fine am I correct in thinking problem is in water pump out cycle? When I replace fuse again will there be diagnostic codes in place? Thanks for the help, great site!

the problem is hard water and there is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. it actually filters the water going into your dishwasher and leaves your dishes spot free. after the first load i was amazed that the white film was gone and my dishes were sparkling. you can get it at www.dishwasherfilter.com.

Are you using rinse aid?
that may help with the film.you may also have stuff down in the trap causing the water to drain slow.

Not draining may either need new drain motor. or something is blocking the drain pipe.
Spots on dishes means you are using to much detergent or the wrong kind of detergent.
Your owners manuel should tell you what type to use.

That is a comon problem with that model. It is not sensing a temperature change in the water.
Push i believe it is heated dry and sani rinse going back and fourth between the two to clear the code and see if you can get it to complete a cycle. If it doesnt call sears and schedule service there is a service flash repair that should not cost you anything to repair the unit.

If someone is putting dishes in the washer and obstructing the spray ams that would cause food to stay on dishes. After loading dishwasher and pushing in baskets make sure the spray arm doesnt hit any of the dishes causing them to not clean properly. If that doesnt work or is definately not your problem try removing the spray arm and seeing if it has food inside of it. Some times they get food build up in them and need to be flushed out.
