The dishwasher should have a thermal fuse mounted to the control board behind the operator consoleKenmore Elite Dishwasher Problem - 4.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.

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.

Our kenmore elite quiet pack 2 front load washer appears to have no power at all. No lights, no codes, nothing. Worked as expect just 2 days prior. No brakers have been tripped on the electric panel...


Always start with the simplest thing, verify that the outlet is good before troubleshooting the machine. I cannot tell you how often the home electrical is the problem not the machine.

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.

Diswasher doesn't clean


your water heater is set too low in temp.
you can turn up the heat or get an on demand heater under your sink for the dishwasher. you get a tax rebate too.
the heater in the new washers are too small to effectively heat the water to hot.
and always add a bit of bleach to your wash. the hot water will neutralize it.
or get an old dishwasher.

press back and forth between hi-tempwash and sani rinse several times to get all lights to come on if not then press sani rinse and heated dry back and forth several times. one of though combos will start the test mode. the test mode will stop the light from blinking and you can use the dishwasher again
