providing its not under guarantee remove mains plug and remove door skin from front of door carefully, as it has to go back on, look for any broken wires just above the door hinge, there will be about 10 or 15 wires, its possible that if you have checked what you said have checked properly that one of these wires has got hot and broken (very common fault of all dishwashers aver 3 year old) replace wire with care etc, work safely,

SOURCE: Dishwasher does not light up, no power to LED switches

If the model number you listed this question under is correct, there is a thermal fuse (also known as a bi-metal) located inside the control panel of the dishwasher. The part number for the thermal fuse replacement is W10258275.

If you type in your model number you can utilize the exploded view parts diagrams at, or to assist you in locating the part. The fuse is listed as item 6 under the "Control Panel Parts" section.

To replace the fuse, follow these steps:

1. Make sure the dishwasher is unplugged or the breaker is turned off.

2. Open the door and remove only the top screws directly behind the control panel.

3. Remove the protective cover from back of the control panel to expose the main control board.

The thermal fuse should be mounted to the control board. If you remove it and take a resistance check, it should read close to 0 ohms, if good. If bad, replace as necessary.

If you no longer have an owner/operator manual for your dishwasher, you can go to and obtain one. Just type in your model number under the "Manuals" link and your owner's and installation manuals are available in .pdf (Adobe) format that you can download or print for FREE.

If you need a troubleshooting guide, all these appliances have a technical data sheet inside them that qualified repairmen refer to. The tech sheet includes all troubleshooting data and wiring diagrams. You can access it usually by removig the lower toe panel under the door. If its not located directly behind the panel, its usually located under the wash tub. Some manufacturers place the tech sheet behind the inner door panel.

If you have any questions about this repair, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Where is fuse located for kenmore dishwasher 66513922K010

You can view the manual here: The manual indicates the only "fuse" is the circuit breaker on the incoming power line to the dishwasher, not in the dishwasher itself.

Wont start or dead dishwasher, no lights, no power, thermal fuse

If you have a dishwasher that is not doing anything, the first thing to check is the incoming power. Make sure the circuit breaker is on and not tripped.

Another place to loose power to the dishwasher is under the sink if it is plugged in to an outlet. It could have come disconnected.

The third place to look is a wall switch. If you have a switch that does not operate a light in the kitchen it may be connected to the dishwasher power source.

If all of these are okay the next place to check is the junction box of the dishwasher. To check here you will want to turn the breaker off first or remove power from the cord before taking panels off. By removing the kick plate or lower panel on the dishwasher you can access the electrical junction box. Many times the wire connectors were not properly installed in this box and over a period of time the connection is lost. This connection should be made by a professional.

If we have power to the dishwasher a common component to fail on many brand such as Whirlpool, KitchenAid, Kenmore, Maytag is the thermal fuse. This device is a two wire heat activated fuse that if tripped will disable the dishwasher. This thermal fuse is attached to the control circuit board that is usually in the console in the upper portion of the door. It can be checked with an ohmmeter just like a regular fuse. When replacing this fuse it may come as a kit with wire connectors, be sure to use all of the parts in the kit. The fuse often will blow due to a loose wire connection on or near the fuse, that is why new connectors are supplied.

A sample image of a typical thermal fuse kit is shown below.

Tried to run dishwasher but it wouldn't turn on -

If you have no power and no lights at all,you may have blown the fuse. There is a non-resettable fuse in the top right corner of the control board.Remove the 6 screws across the top of the console panel to access the board and fuse.
You can check the fuse for continuity with a meter set for ohms or continuity. Al;so check the door switch below the open/close lever for continuity.Check incoming power under the dishwasher were the incoming power wires connect.

Where is fuse located for Miele G641 Plus dishwasher and how to replace it?


there is no fuse on this model. first thing to do is check the incoming power at the socket. you can also find the electronics which control the unit all behind the door handle. Check there is power reaching the control electronics.
underneath the unit there are the components like the drain pump, circulation pump,hoses, pressure switch, relay for the heating, water sump etc which are all driven by the control electronics behind the door handle. you will find about 6-8 screws holding this front facia panel on. Remove this and firstly check all the connections are good. you may find a plug has just worked loose.
Hope this helps.

Bosch dishwasher SHE44CO2UC/22 no power or light, no response to the power on. We have checked fuse box and electrical supply. Is this an electrical panel problem? Is there a "fuse" to the dishwasher?

Hi sir,
first thing to say is that whether it may be an short circuit between circuits,,or due to an over voltage the fuse may be burnt,,please check the control panel..back of dishwasher,,,
if u checked fuse and circuit,,and think no problem with incoming voltage ,,the control panel's capacitors or resistors may be burnt..
if so please go to a tech,,,,,
thank u,,,for using fixya

Siemans dishwasher not draining

the water in the bottem of the machine under the mesh filter is normal. it acts as a lubricant for both motor impeller and drain propeller. if its greasy then try using only 1 tablespoon of powder soap from now on. now if the water level is ever above the mesh filter after a complete cycle, then you have a drain problem

No power for my Siemans SL84A dishwasher

Not a solution but a cause for my DW having the same problem. One of the four wires going to the On/Off switch shorted and burned. I never lost power to the unit, as far as I know there is no reset button of fuse. I rewired the unit and ran several washes without overheating or shorting.
