Overheated. Why won't it start?

I'm not really familiar with JEEP mechanics but if you've replaced your water pump and it's still overheating with full water/coolant level, you should check the thermostat; when it fails, it's a common cause or overheating in all kind of cars

Thermostat tripping

I just fixed my Maytag's bi-metal switch. I smacked it with the plastic end of a screwdriver. Problem solved. You may have venting issues in the dishwasher if it's continually overheating.

Replacing a thermostat on a dishwasher

you are most likely referring to item 16 in this diagram. You can order the part and replace it. This is the limiting thermostat which protects the unit from overheating.

However the heater thermostat is item 41 in this diagram. this controls the heater temperature.

Are the plastic dishes you mention dishwasher safe. they should have a symbol on them to say they are? What you describe is a typical sigh of overheating, but it may be possible that the new machine thermostat may be faulty and is running too hot. If you feel this is the case and the machine is new, it is safer to consult the dealer rather than risk losing your warranty because the machine was tampered with.

Hi there,

Well problem seems in the  Timer -
Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, then it cause the dishwasher to overheat, you need to replace the Timer, because it can't be repaired.

Good Luck!!
