The dishwasher should have a thermal fuse mounted to the control board behind the operator console. It is a small silver colored device attached to a white plastic 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 questions, 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 shop and they SHOULD have the part available. This is a known problem and a common fail item.

Kenmore elite 665.13929k010 is dead. No lights come on. No breakers tripped at electric panel. Everything else working fine. No prior issues. Where do I start checking for power loss?


I would check Kenmore Dishwasher Thermal Fuse W10402110
RepairClinic Item #2443847 ' Whirlpool OEM Part #W10402110 Price $23.00 This will require removal of unit and some disassembly This may or may not be problem. You might want to weigh the options have it repaired or buy an new unit . If you fix this unit that is no longer made you will have a an old unit. In my experience dishwasher are not worth repair.

Kenmore elite he washer lock light. cannot open


Hi,


You can manually Unlock the door Lock System

1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Remove the lower kick panel.
3. Reach up along the inside of the front and locate the bottom of the door switch/lock unit.
4. Located on the bottom of the door switch/lock unit is a tear-drop shaped tab.
5. Gently pull the tab down about a ¼" or until a click is heard.
6. The door may be opened.


Thank you !!

Just dead. Doesn't light up or start or respond.


You will need to replace the power supply most likely. If you can find a fuse or relay, check with an ohmmeter to determine that they are good. You can use a voltmeter to determine that there is power going to the control panel.

My Kenmore Elite, Model 11062042100, has been working fine but now the control panel is totally dead. The interior light is working, so I know it is getting power. Any ideas? Thanks!Shaun


OK, if you are certain that the unit is receiving a power current, this will most defiantly confirm a major chip fault in in the main control board.

Try to wake the control by cutting the power to the unit for 5 minutes. if the damage isn't severe, this will either, reset the program or, render and error code. if both do not appear and the control remains blank or dead, after the reset, replace the main control board.

Kenmore Elite Dishwasher Problem


I had this same problem so I took the front panel off to access the thermal fuse.  What I found instead was that food had become lodged in the door latch which was keeping the door safety switch from operating properly.  I took a thin screwdriver and removed the food from the cavity.  Since you did not have the problem in your first five years the cavity just might be the problem since that is about the amount of time it took me to get too much food stuck in mine as well. This solution took five seconds and requires no disassembly.

Kenmore elite microwave


Does the digital display light up at all? Is it completely dead? Are you sure it has power? Have you tried another outlet? If the outlet is good and the unit is completely dead, the internal fuse may have blown. You can try to take the cover off (with the unit unplugged) and look for a blown fuse. Try replacing the fuse with an EXACT fuse of the same rating. Try plugging the unit back in again and see if the unit comes back on. If not, you may have a power supply issue or defective Magnetron.

Please let me know what you find and we'll go from there.

Good Luck,
- Jim
