Question about Kenmore 15899 Built-in Dishwasher
The thermal fuse blows due to over temperature. In almost every case where it blows it was due to a poor wire connection to the thermal fuse or a wire connection on the control board, or lastly on the door switch.
The thermal fuse should come with a small wire kit. Be sure to use this kit when replacing the fuse so that the wire connections to the fuse are tight and will not over heat when the machine is drawing the most power (typically in the heated wash or rinse). Look closely at all the wire connections to the control board and door switch, if any are discolored clean and tighten the connection.
Lastly on the left side of the console is the vent for steam, make sure the foam seal is in place around that vent so hot vapor is not migrating to the board area causing too much heat.
Let me know if you need more help on this.

The issue seems to be either
with the Thermal fuse which is located inside the rear panel to the exhaust
duct or the control board itself has gone bad. You can take a voltmeter and
check the thermal fuse for continuity, if it is open then replace the fuse else
the control should be replaced to solve this issue. Hope this helps...please
post back for further assistance.
