Question about Kenmore 24 in. 16472 / 16474 / 16479 Built-in Dishwasher
We replaced the heating element and control board in our Kenmore 16479 dishwasher. After two successful cycles, we now have no power to the LED and the dishwasher will not start. Any suggestions?
First off check to make sure you have incoming power, that the circuit breaker is not tripped or fuse blown, the outlet it is connected to has power, no switch that controls that is off.
If power is going to the dishwasher the most common reason for the unit to be dead like this would be the thermal fuse. The thermal fuse is a device that clips on to the control board you just replaced. It senses the temperature of the board and trips if it gets too hot. My guess is that it either is not clipped on to the new board in the right spot or one of the wire connections to the board or this fuse is not tight and creating enough heat to trip it.
You will need to replace this fuse if it is bad, it will come with new wires for it. Be sure to install the new wires, the kit will have instructions.
