As I look at the pictoral, it seems there are twelve screws that hold the inner door to the outer door. Youmust remove these and then separate the door parts. Then you will see the screws that hold the dispenser in place from inside the door.

SOURCE: Cancel Light Flashing on Kitchen Aid Dishwasher

I ran into this same problem. Cutting the power didnt reset it.

After power reset, mine had the normal led blinking. If I pressed cancel, then the cancel and china button leds would start blinking too.

I pulled out the trouble shooting guide (from behind the baseboard kick panel under the dishwasher door). It that if the dishwasher wont run and button LEDs are blinking there is a short circuit in the keypad. It gave a keypad diagnostic sequence which I followed. (disconnect keypad and try to initiate the diagnostic cycle without the keypad by disconecting the yellow leads to OWI sensor twice in less than 6 seconds.

I could hear the diagnostic cycle start, so the problem is a bad keypad. Will order a new one tomorrow and let you know if it works.

Dryer wouldn't work last week. Found the Thermal Fuse with no continuity and replaced it. After drying one load of clothes yesterday, dryer won't work again. I suspect the thermal fuse again. What else ...


Or your breaker. The dryer will work just won't heat with the thermal cutoffs or element or the breaker. Dryer won't do anything if the thermal fuse is bad. You might also want to check the outlet from L1 to N and L2 to N for 110 on each side. Good luck.

Kenmore dryer Model 110.86982 Year 1989 does not heat


If you bypass the hi limit thermostat you will blow your thermal fuse within minutes. The hi limit thermostat is a bi-metal thermostat which warps when heated to kill power to the element. If its bypassed then the element will not turn off.....which will in turn blow your thermal fuse which is rated at a higher temp than the hi limit. So unfortunately it will not work.

Hope this helps _MJ_

I am having trouble with it will be working fine for about a week then it will just kick off


sounds like the bi- metal thermo-stat switch puts in a week, then takes a little time off,now what's the matter with that, replace switch or if you're mechanically inclined you could clean and recalibrate the bi-metal switch

Oven will not heat after auto clean


you have a blown tco. Thermal cutoff....it is located in the back of your oven. connected by two wires usually a orange and a red. you can try sticking it in the freezer overnight some of the tco are resetable but they have to be frozen. then tape on the back of it with a screw driver a few times. if you have a multimeter check to see if the continuity comes back. if it does not replace it with a new one. MAKE SURE YOU TURN THE POWER OFF FIRST.

Krups model KM7005 water wont heat


Mine had the same problem ... all the lights are on, but no heating on the plate, and no dripping of water.

After a weekend on the workbench, I've mastered this machine. The KM7005 has 2 x MicroTemp G4 thermal cutoff (TCO) fuses which interrupt the Live line, for overheat protection. Mine didn't overheat per se, but the TCO blew anyway. Not reset-able ... need to be replaced with a soldering iron. I'll be happy to advise you to fix this, or fix it for you. Write me at KM7005@flightsystems.biz.

Here is your problem and yes it can be fixed.

More than likely your thermal cutoff tripped because your heater got too hot.

Solution:
1. Unplug unit.
2. remove front support feet and screw underneath face plate will slide off.
3. You will see the heating element, a white wire is coming out of it. There is a white sleeve on the wire tucked up into the element. Pull the wire out and slide sleeve off to expose the thermal switch labeled (S.W.C. sw-120t ect.) You can google it to learn more about the cutoff. If you know how you can test the cutoff with a ammeter or voltmeter, If you don't google how to test electrical systems. Remember "first do no harm"
4.
a. If you can replace the cutoff do so (this is the recommended way)
b. If you don't want to replace it cut the cutoff out and solder the wires back together. (be warned that this will bypass the safety system) If you do this be careful to not leave your radiator unattended.
5. After soldering the wire, taping it will electrical tape. Replace face plate from step 1 and 2 and your heater will work.
P.s. If your heater is still under warranty just contact lakewood.
