Question about Dishwashers
Our dishwasher keeps blowing the thermal fuse. Model is a Kenmore 66517022401. The frequency of fuse failure is getting more frequent. What is causing this?
The first thing I would inspect is the heating element for damage that may beginning to short out.
If the element checks out good, a failing motor could blow the fuse.
If the motor checks out, look for shorts in the wiring both in the door and under the unit.
It is hard to be more specific without knowing the make & model and the dishwashers approximate age (years.)
Good Luck! Please report back what you found, OK?
