SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Dishwasher Problem

The dishwasher should have a thermal fuse mounted to the control board behind the operator console4.gif. It is a small silver colored device4.gif attached to a white plactic bracket. In some model dishwashers the wrong gage wiring was used causing the wires to heat up and trip the thermal fuse. There was no apparent risk of fire or anything like that, but the thermal fuses didn't tolerate the heat differential too well. A fix for the problem was to purchase a thermal fuse replacement kit (found at most appliance repair stores) that had thicker wires. The part number for the thermal fuse kit is 959376 and the price is $16.85. You can find it at repairclinic.com. Order on line and have the part shipped directly to you. Now...to access the control board perform the following:

1. Turn off the main breaker to the dishwasher. This is important. Even though the dishwasher is not running, the control board still has live voltages present.
2. Open dishwasher door and remove the top screws that hold the console in place. You shouldn't have to remove the lower screws unless you plan on removing the entire door panel.
3. The control panel should pull off from the front enough to where you can access the control board. There is a thermal fuse mounted on the board with two wire leads going to it. The fuse is silver in color and mounted to a plastic bracket which is mounted to the control board.
4. Cut the wires on the old fuse and splice the new fuse kit to it. Leave plenty of wire to accommodate. There will be instructions included with your replacement kit. Ensure you follow the direction thoroughly and tighten the wire lug screws securely.

NOTE: Do not attempt to reuse the existing wires by simply unplugging the old fuse and replacing it with the new one (been there). The fuse will eventually blow again. Follow the instructions provided and you can't go wrong.

If you have any further quesitons, or if you run into trouble during your repairs, let me know. Good luck to you.

PS If you do not wish to order on line, take the part number I provided you to any major appliance repair shop4.gif and they SHOULD have the part available. This is a known problem and a common fail item.

Consider examine inside there is maybe fuse busted on the panel or in the circuit through the control panel of the machine.

My dryer is dead. I have ohmed out the cord and changed the dryer control board (8546219). Still dead, nothing at all. Any other ideas? I have checked the fuse and it is good. I had a local repair man look...


hello again,

no thier doesn't seem to big issue with with reconditioned control panels in fact i dare say yours is good since the dryer didnt start with the original one and still wont start with the one you have replaced. having checked teh thermal fuse to be good and with basically 2 control boards yet the dryer doesnt run it seems very possible the motor is going to be the problem...not sure what led ya to the control board yet it the drum doesnt turn the very part that turns it when power is applied to,if it has powewr to it and doesnt turn the drum it would seem to me its bad....dont get me wrong on this but its like having a broken leg and going to the doctor and saying i believe that my heart is weak since my legs hurts and totally disregarding the broken leg

Sears elite he dryer stopped working


Bad control panel. Replace the control panel at repairclinic.com. When your control panel clicks like that it means that a resistor or solder joint has gone bad and it is cheaper and easier to just replace the board

4E problem on kenmore dryer


Same problem, no panel lights, nothing, but drum light works. Several postings on othe sites say the cuicuitry board is faulty. Sears, in the Phillippines, or India, do notheing. Paid lots for this dryer, live alone and really don't abuse it or even use it that much. Is the there a class action suit maybe? all I want is for it to work!
