Bimetal fuse The incoming power was blinking off and on due to a storm, it caused the bi metal fuse to fail in the dishwasher when it was not operating, the fuse was replaced with kit #w10258275, now two weeks later the fuse has failed again while operating.These fuses are expensive, I would like to know the value (amps) of these fuses so that the system can checked to try and find out the reason for failure, or maybe you might have an idea where to start. Thanks Tad

If the model number you listed this question under is correct, there is a thermal fuse (also known as a bi-metal) located inside the control panel of the dishwasher. The part number for the thermal fuse replacement is W10258275.

If you type in your model number you can utilize the exploded view parts diagrams at pcappliancerepair.com, appliancepartspros.com or searspartdirect.com to assist you in locating the part. The fuse is listed as item 6 under the "Control Panel Parts" section.


To replace the fuse, follow these steps:

1. Make sure the dishwasher is unplugged or the breaker is turned off.

2. Open the door and remove only the top screws directly behind the control panel.

3. Remove the protective cover from back of the control panel to expose the main control board.

The thermal fuse should be mounted to the control board. If you remove it and take a resistance check, it should read close to 0 ohms, if good. If bad, replace as necessary.

If you no longer have an owner/operator manual for your dishwasher, you can go to mangemylife.com and obtain one. Just type in your model number under the "Manuals" link and your owner's and installation manuals are available in .pdf (Adobe) format that you can download or print for FREE.

If you need a troubleshooting guide, all these appliances have a technical data sheet inside them that qualified repairmen refer to. The tech sheet includes all troubleshooting data and wiring diagrams. You can access it usually by removig the lower toe panel under the door. If its not located directly behind the panel, its usually located under the wash tub. Some manufacturers place the tech sheet behind the inner door panel.


If you have any questions about this repair, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Your drain is gummed up and it may be the hose too. First remove the trays. Then, clean out everything from the bottom of the inside dishwasher pan. Also clear the drain hole in it. BE CAREFUL THAT YOU DO NOT CUT YOUR SELF ON ANY BROKEN GLASS THAT MAY BE IN THE BOTTOM. Next, go under your sink (or where ever the hose hooks your dishwasher into your drain) remove the hose and clean around both sides of the connections (be sure to replace it exactly how it was to prevent leaks-also check for leaks during and after your first test run). Lastly, run the washer empty using only 1/4 of vinegar. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Model KUDD01DPPA KitchenAid dishwasher Error:

Hi.

You can find parts and diagrams for this model here.

Alternatively here: KUDD01DPPA0.

About the problem, the inlet valve and hose is single, therefore the valve is working.
Check the inlet hose setting. Check pressure from lines.

Check the fill hose for the upper drawer. That is likely causing the problem.Check the fill hose in the link assembly, and the valve Check in drain (Fill hose for upper drawer is 4 here).

Regards.

Ginko.

Whirlpool Dishwasher model GU2800XTVS1 has no lights on the control panel


BI METAL is a fuse, use an ohm meter.select ohms, place one lead on each of the 2 prongs it must read zero. If it reads anything else it must be replaced. If it has already been replaced before you may also have to replace the lead wires. It all comes in a kit and is a pretty straight forward procedure.

Soap remains in dispenser after completed cycle and dishes are not clean


Hello laura.... there are three possible causes of the dispenser not opening:

1.Timer
On many dishwashers, a plastic actuator arm mechanically links the timer to the detergent cup. When the timer reaches the proper time in the cycle, the timer activates a lever that opens the detergent cup. If the linkage is broken or defective, the cup stays closed after you've closed it. Check the link and repair or replace it, as necessary. 2. Bi-metal switch or wax motor A bi-metal switch is a simple electrical device that deforms when electricity is applied to it. The degree of this deformation can be engineered to concise standards. The timer energizes the bi-metal switch inside your dishwasher door--directly behind the detergent cup--when the detergent cup should open. When energized, the bi-metal switch deforms away from the detergent cup latch, which opens the detergent cup. If the bi-metal switch is defective, it may not deform enough to open the cup. If that happens, you need to replace it. On some dishwashers, the bimetal switch is wired through the heating element or motor circuit. If the element is broken (or open), or if the motor is drawing low current because of a low-fill situation, the bi-metal switch doesn't open properly. Newer dishwasher models use a wax motor instead of a bi-metal switch. It's a sealed unit with wax that heats up and pushes a piston through to open the door. The wax motor, controlled by the timer, mechanically opens the door. 3. Detergent cup, itself The detergent cup itself can become clogged with old dried detergent that prevents it from opening. Sometimes just cleaning the cup takes care of the problem. If not, you probably need to replace the entire cup assembly That said, one way around this is to simply add the soap or the soap tab into the dishwasher proper, not into the cup.

I have a whirpool dishwasher model #du980qpd85, soap door don't open. can you tell me what makes it open and what the problem could be/


Hello ramward. There are three reasons why the soap door won't open. The first is soap buildup. This is a common problem and requires old fashioned elbow grease, and hot water, and lots of cotton swabs. That said, read on:

The soap dispenser fails to open at times


Hi


Bosch dishwashers (not all) use a BI-metal strip that heats up once power is applied to it. The BI-metal strip bends and allows the soap door spring to open up the dispenser. This bi-metal strip is not given full 120 volts power, the timer "shunts" the power through either the heating element ( most common ) or the motor and this gives the bi-metal strip lower than full power to work and open. Most often the bi-metal strip has lost its ability to bend properly and needs to be replaced.

Older Bosch dishwashers used a mechanical arm driven by the timer to open the dispenser = no electrical bi-metals. Newer (plastic liner) dishwashers use a wax motor to open the soap dispenser. The plunger inside the wax motor slowly moves and pushes the plunger and door open. And, if this wax motor doesn’t receive 120 volts, then it’ll not work.


Please do rate this solution and revert for further assistance.

Our Maytag TM-1 top mount refrigerator has stopped cooling (lights are on, so there's power). What would be likely culprits? It has auto-defrost.


frost free refrigerators consists of -
1)Heater
2)Thermostat(bimetal)
3)timer

heater and bi metal are in freezer section. First check heater. Give it direct power supply. If it heats up,its OK. Then check bimetal. Immerse it in Ice. check continuity using a continuity tester. If its showing continuity its OK too.

change timer if both heater and bi metal are OK.

The cycles times are too long If your dishwasher's cycle times are too long, check these:

Water pre-heating
Cycle not completing
Water pre-heating Your dishwasher may pre-heat the water. If so, and if the water entering the dishwasher is cool, the heater may take up to half an hour to heat the water.

To avoid the wait, increase the incoming water temperature before turning on the dishwasher. Do that by running the kitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase the temperature of the hot water to the entire house at the hot water heater.

Warning! To lessen the risk of scalding, don't set the hot water heater temperature higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

Cycle not completing See "The cycle doesn't complete" section.
