If you had a fault in your neutral wire the voltage may have raised to near 220 volts and fried the circuitboard. Replave the circuitboard or replace the thermistor on it. Double check the voltage and the connections where it is wired under the dishwasher.

SOURCE: Dishwasher tripping the circuit breaker

Andy, leave the breaker off and remove the toe panel (bottom panel) from the dishwasher. Remove the cover of the junction box where the cord connection or wiring is made. Look at the wire caps and see if they are not burnt. Sometimes these connections become loose and arch, tripping the breaker. If so, cut the wires, strip a new end and reconnect. Catriver...post back.

Yeah, I have a similar problem. I tried to go into a suggested diagnostic run, but that didn't yield anything. I tried pushing the Sani-Rinse and Air Dry buttons back and forth a number of times. Didn't help.
At first I thought the lock-on had accidently been engaged, but disengaging the "child lock" doesn't help. The lock-on light comes back on and sometimes blinks rapidly. I"ve counted around 7 rapid blinks at times and 3 rapid blinks at other times--in case that makes a difference. The control panel doesn't work--in other words, the dishwasher does not start, even when I can successfully get other lights to come on. I don't want to spend >$100. for a new control panel if that is not really the problem.

SOURCE: Kenmore Dishwasher, no power

There will be a thermal fuse located on the electronic control board housing that may have failed.This replaceable part (gray or white) is clipped on to the side of the plastic housing.

No power on the kenmore 17795791


Hello there and welcome to fixya
If you have checked the circuit breaker and tried to reset it whish i highly recommend then the next thing to check is the thermal fuse with a ohm meter
the thermal fuse is connected to the control board and you can test the thermal fuse AP4423189 with a multi-meter AP3873826. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html

No power suddenly on the control panel... kenmore elite model 665-1374/665-1384 Worked one day and not the next. Breaker is on, no blockage at water line... connections all tight. It's only 14 months old!


Kenmore dishwashers should be recalled!! Their poorly designed computer circuit boards are all malfunctioning around 15 months. Look on the inside top of your door. Do you see a instructions? There should be some about your Heat Dry button and holding it down for 4 seconds to reset your computer board. Read and try it first. It's like rebooting a computer.

Kenmore elite , no heat


Check the following to address this issue.




1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Hi!

If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:
Power from the house
Heating element
Thermal fuse
Wiring

Power from the house

Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.

Heating element

Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.

Thermal fuse

On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

Wiring

A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.
Do rate the solution as FIxya if you find this solution helpful.

Yes. Remove the kickplate and check the continuity of the thermal fuse located on the blower housing.
