Sometimes the electrical connects become loose
take off the toe kick and check your connections
if its blowing fuses you have a direct ground somewhere more than likely it is in the electrical box

Windshield wiper fuse keeps blowing


Since you Disconnect the motor also renewed the switch and is still blowing the fuse ,it is obvious that you have either broken wire between the switch and the motor. Try to test the failure by means of a tester circuit. Good Luck.

Is this a typical problem with this model dishwasher?


fuses do not blow from power surges or spikes
only from excessive current flow
for your own safety ,get in an accredited electrician to check the circuity of the house and then with that certificate in hand you can go back to sears and demand a refund of your money for a defective unit
their requirement is a ways of getting around a refund payment

Is there a fuse on the Whirlpool 24 in. DU910PFG Built-in dishwasher? ... it just stopped working!


Good evening, There is no fuse that would shut down everything.Check for switch under sink or your home circuit breaker.Then it could be your door switch which shuts every thing down .It may be stuck open.Sometimes a door slam will get it going but still needs replacement.$40 part though.Switch is located behind console and can be checked with ohm meter.Sears Parts Direct shows blow up of your machine.
If it was your circuit breaker and it blows again ,you have a short and you'll need tech. to troubleshoot or maybe there is another load on that circuit (like toaster etc)


hope this helped

Suddenly I have no power to my dishwasher. I checked my main house electrical fuses and they seem fine. Is their another fuse in the washer itself to check?


Do some more experiments...Check power is getting to the power point at the back of machine (maybe plug in a lamp or something if you don't have a multi-meter), check external cable for damage (while not plugged in). Is there any signs of power at all? Any lights that come on or beeps made? If your model doesn't have lights to begin with, it could be a problem in the trip switch in the door for example. There probably is an internal fuse... only problem is that if it did blow, it might have for a reason... keep investigating

No front panel lights Whirlpool GU2500XTPB1. Power to dishwash is good.


Hello,

what most likely is going to be the problem is a blown thermal fuse that attaches to the control panel housing. gain access to the control panel and use should see the thermal fuse,the housing for the control board is grey and this part is white.Remove the wires to it and check for contininity on it (ZERO OHMS) using a ohm meter set to a low ohms setting. If it turns out to be good the next thing to check is the switch(s) on the latch asm using the same method to check them as the fuse.BEFORE CHECKING EITHER OF THOSE BE SURE TO DISCONNECT POWER TO THE DISHWASHER

My Whirlpool GU2400XTP dishwasher keeps blowing the fuse. It sat up for 6months because the control panel went out and I couldn't afford to get a new one. Finally replaced the panel and the thermal fuse...


Are you replacing the wires along with the fuse? It is important to change the wires too as they are usually the cause for the fuse blowing. Be sure and get the fuse kit that includes the wires.

Is your water too hot? Hot water is fine but too hot of water can cause the fuse to blow over time. The temp should be somewhere around 120 F. Anything over 130 F is way too hot. I personally don't use a long high steam final rinse or high heat because over time the steam and cause the electronics to short as steam and moisture can get into the keyboard and inside panel.

Maytag WU1000 Series 2 has no power, is there a fuse in the door or on the lower unit? Any other suggestion?


Do the following:
  1. Check the power from the wall outlet or the branch circuit itself.
  2. Check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.
  3. Check the wiring connections of the dishwasher from the house wiring.
  4. Check the door switch. Remove the control panel cover or the interior liner of the door whenever it is applicable.
  5. Try by-passing the switch. If the unit powers on replace switch completely.
  6. Check the timer or selector switch. replace if defective.
