Dishwasher blows power fuses and chars power board

We bought this dishwasher in 2008 and it blew its first fuse in 2010. Service repaired with new fuse assy. in 2011 just months past the wty. date it blew another fuse. I ordered and replaced. since then it has blown a fuse once or twice a year. These things cost $27.00 and should not be going this often. Is there any modifications or recalls about this problem. I think I might need a new board or entire washer.

SOURCE: MAH5500BWW model fuse blown

You probably need the motor conversion kit 12002039. This Neptune motor / motor control board has a high failure rate. To determine this you need to remove the front cover and inspect the motor control board near the floor on right side for burnt components or a blown 10 amp fuse. If you have burnt components or a blown fuse then your motor control board has failed and needs to be replaced. See www.neptunewaxmotor.com for Neptune disassembly pictures and other neptune information.

SOURCE: 1.6A250V fuse blows on V3500 power circuit board

Hi,
Your DVD combo use a Switch Mode Power supply.
If you want to give it a bash here is a good guide that explains how they work and how to trouble shoot. http://www.repairfaq.org/sam/smpsfaq.htm
but ...
in 95% of the cases it is a shorted switchmode power transistor and other semiconductors, open fusable resistors, other bad parts. Note: actual cause of failure may be power surge/brownout/lightning strikes, random failure, or primary side electrolytic capacitor(s) with greatly reduced capacity or entirely open - test them before powering up the repaired unit.

No lights no power in dishwasher


You blew the fuse or bimetal. The fuse will open to prevent the unit from catching on fire. Please flick your breaker and make sure there is nothing else tapped into the same spot as the dishwasher or you will overload it and the fuse will blow again. The unit will most likely need a new control board, p/n #

Dish washer blows the switchboard fuses have to un plug it


Please clarify if the dishwasher had completed the wash cycle before the fuse started blowing up. It is likely there is flooding at the base of dishwasher which causes the mains fuse to blow. YOu will have to take the bottom drawer out to check. see this video on how to take drawer out. The steps are shown half way through the video. Make sure the mains plug is taken out from the socket before you handle the dishwasher.

My Whirlpool GU2400XTP dishwasher keeps blowing the fuse. It sat up for 6months because the control panel went out and I couldn't afford to get a new one. Finally replaced the panel and the thermal fuse...


Are you replacing the wires along with the fuse? It is important to change the wires too as they are usually the cause for the fuse blowing. Be sure and get the fuse kit that includes the wires.

Is your water too hot? Hot water is fine but too hot of water can cause the fuse to blow over time. The temp should be somewhere around 120 F. Anything over 130 F is way too hot. I personally don't use a long high steam final rinse or high heat because over time the steam and cause the electronics to short as steam and moisture can get into the keyboard and inside panel.

Kenmore Elite Dishwasher Problem


The dishwasher should have a thermal fuse mounted to the control board behind the operator console4.gif. It is a small silver colored device4.gif attached to a white plactic bracket. In some model dishwashers the wrong gage wiring was used causing the wires to heat up and trip the thermal fuse. There was no apparent risk of fire or anything like that, but the thermal fuses didn't tolerate the heat differential too well. A fix for the problem was to purchase a thermal fuse replacement kit (found at most appliance repair stores) that had thicker wires. The part number for the thermal fuse kit is 959376 and the price is $16.85. You can find it at repairclinic.com. Order on line and have the part shipped directly to you. Now...to access the control board perform the following:

1. Turn off the main breaker to the dishwasher. This is important. Even though the dishwasher is not running, the control board still has live voltages present.
2. Open dishwasher door and remove the top screws that hold the console in place. You shouldn't have to remove the lower screws unless you plan on removing the entire door panel.
3. The control panel should pull off from the front enough to where you can access the control board. There is a thermal fuse mounted on the board with two wire leads going to it. The fuse is silver in color and mounted to a plastic bracket which is mounted to the control board.
4. Cut the wires on the old fuse and splice the new fuse kit to it. Leave plenty of wire to accommodate. There will be instructions included with your replacement kit. Ensure you follow the direction thoroughly and tighten the wire lug screws securely.

NOTE: Do not attempt to reuse the existing wires by simply unplugging the old fuse and replacing it with the new one (been there). The fuse will eventually blow again. Follow the instructions provided and you can't go wrong.

If you have any further quesitons, or if you run into trouble during your repairs, let me know. Good luck to you.

PS If you do not wish to order on line, take the part number I provided you to any major appliance repair shop4.gif and they SHOULD have the part available. This is a known problem and a common fail item.

Blew the Fuse in my GE PDW9880LSS Dishwasher


There is no in-line fuse in your dishwasher. If water has gotten into the junction box, (where the dishwasher and supply line are connected) it could have shorted at that point. Call a technician for service.
