Question about Dishwashers
After a power surge I lost my kenmore elite dishwasher...Tried the circuit breaker, replaced the thermal fuse...what can I try from here?
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.

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.
