    I double check the Model #. That is the correct one I gave you. Got it off the unit itself.

    These issues are generally caused by Voltage fluctuations and/or
    heat from the wiring harness. To start with check the wiring harness if that is
    correct and grounded. Then check the wire connections to the fuse, the door
    switch and the wire connections on the main control board. Check and make sure
    the wire connections to control panel and the wires to the door switches are
    tight and fine. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post
    a comment for further assistance.









    Thanks

I cant get my dishwasher to start


Defective Door Switch?The next thing that could be causing your dishwasher to not start could be the door switch. This door switch is also sometimes called a door lock or door interlock switch. This switch is a safety feature and makes it so the dishwasher will not run if the door is open. If your dishwasher won't start, then it is possible this switch is bad. This switch is located inside the door panel. To determine if the door switch is bad, remove the control panel, locate the door switch, and test it for continuity.
Blown Thermal Fuse?Another part in your dishwasher that could be causing it to not start could be the thermal fuse. This fuse is designed to blow if the dishwasher overheats. If this fuse blows, it will need to be removed and replaced to make your dishwasher work. Most dishwashers have the thermal fuse located in the control panel area. To determine if the thermal fuse is bad, remove the control panel, locate the fuse, and test it for continuity.
Broken Door Latch?The part that holds your dishwasher door shut is called a door latch. 99% of the time this latch is made from plastic. If this latch becomes broken or cracked, it will prevent your door from closing properly. To determine if your door latch is bad, inspect your dishwasher door and be sure the latch is not broken.
Defective Main Control Board?The control board in your dishwasher supplies power to all components. If your dishwasher won't start, this could mean that the board is bad. If you have tested and confirmed working all the other steps above, then the control board in your dishwasher is most likely bad and replacing it would be a smart option at this point.

I have a Kenmore Dishwasher. Model # is 665 17379300 and the power is not on. I have checked circuits and they are fine. Connetion to unit is ok as well. Where can I look next.


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 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

Good luck, i this i have helped you to figure out what is wrong with your dishwasher,

Have kenmore quiet partner 1 dishwasher. Fuse failed a year ago after 1 year in service, panel has no lights, suspect fuse again. Need to know fuse location and description of fuse


You didn't list model number. remove screws on inside of door to have access to controls. There should be a thermal fuse square object with two wires attached. Some brands now come with short pigtail wires, so bad terminals are eliminated. IF it's a kenmore, then go to www.searspartsdirect.com You can see parts diagram there.

No power suddenly on the control panel... kenmore elite model 665-1374/665-1384 Worked one day and not the next. Breaker is on, no blockage at water line... connections all tight. It's only 14 months old!


Kenmore dishwashers should be recalled!! Their poorly designed computer circuit boards are all malfunctioning around 15 months. Look on the inside top of your door. Do you see a instructions? There should be some about your Heat Dry button and holding it down for 4 seconds to reset your computer board. Read and try it first. It's like rebooting a computer.

This dishwasher has worked fine for years. Suddenly, no power at all to front controls, won't start. There is power at the plug. Any ideas?


Kenmore and other Whirlpool manufactured dishwashers have a thermal fuse located inside the operator console. If the fuse blows it will exhibit the symptoms you describe. It cannot be reset and must be replaced. If you post back with your model number I can confirm how your dishwasher is configured and maybe provide you with a part number.

Completely dead. breaker is fine. have live power at dishwasher. ???? Replaced heater, pump and check valve last year. No obvious burnt or disconnected wires.


There is a thermal fuse located behind the operator console on nearly all Kenmore or Whirlpool manufactured dishwashers. There were some noted problems with certain model dishwashers where the wire gauge on the thermal fuse was too small and would heat up causing the thermal fuse to blow prematurely. There is a replacement kit available that includes a wire harness with a larger gauge wire that you simply splice in place. It handles current better and prevents the fuse from blowing prematurely. To ease your mind, there were no reports of fire hazard.

If you need to view a diagram of your dishwasher, enter your model number at the website mentioned for some excellent exploded view illustrations. The thermal fuse is usually listed under the "Control Panel Parts" heading.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

I have model number KUD 101TJBL0. I have spent about 300.00 on repairs. It keeps blowing the thermal fuse. I have had it replaced sev. times. My repair man has given up on solving the problem. I did read...


Hi,

This applies mainly to Kenmore Dishwashers with the model number 665.15835791 but also to any Whirlpool or Kenmore dishwasher with an electronic display. There are several possible trouble makers on this dishwasher that can cause this problem and we'll go through the most common ones.

1.Bad Door Latch Switches.

There 2 switches you can buy them from online vendors.


2. Blown Thermal Fuse

The thermal fuse is located in the control panel, called out as item #18 in this picture. You can check it with a simple continuity test. Or you can jumper it out to see if the dishwasher will start running normally. If it's bad,
http://www3.sears.com/Paul/Leadimage.asp?productTypeID=0130000&brandID=0582&modelDesc=DISHWASHER&modelNumber=66515835791&documentID=10058594&documentTypeID=PLDM&documentClassCode=PM&titleType=FRAME%20AND%20CONSOLE&titleID=00001&


3.Control board problems can stem from **** and noise in the dishwasher's electrical supply which make the electronics on the control board go flakey. This problem has been documented by Whirlpool in a tech memo (if your Kenmore model number begins with 665 then, yes, Whirlpool made your dishwasher). Or, it could just be a bad control board, plain n' simple.

The above one is a generic solution, also applicable for Kitchenaid Dishwashers.

The best online vendor as per user reviews :-

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

DO ACCEPT THE SOLUTION IF 100% SATISFIED.

Blowing fuse...


Tim, this blown fuse issue was pretty common on this model. Whirlpool, which made this model came out with a fuse kit that included a terminal and heavier guage wire to eliminate this problem. It just splices right into the control board, easy job. The model number that you posted had some service flashes out on it including a heater and motor rework. If your model number ends in 00 or 01, yours may be included. You may want to check with Whirlpool to get that fuse kit and check on the service flash. The service flash is 22-721. Good luck, Catriver
