Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Hi I have a whirlpool diswasher which is about 7 uears old which has blown the fuse (and the mains trip) half way through a cycle. Replaceing the fuse has resulted not resulted in the restoring of power to the unit. Is there anything simple I could check (in line fuses etc.)? Cheers

Bosch diswasher,model Sms68m02AU trips circuit breaker


rcd units trip from the milliamps that are in a short
it trips the rcd to prevent electrocution and acts in nano seconds besides being a circuit breaker for excessive current
the trip can be from moisture allowing a current leakage to ground or some other simple operation
I suggest that you get in a qualified electrician / bosch service technician to find the reason for the problem rcd

I have a Whirlpool ADP9000ix diswasher that will not power the front display/touch panel. Therefore cannot turn the dishwasher on. I have checked the circuit control panel. And power is getting to it....


If your Whirlpools over there are like the older ones here in the U.S., you may find that there is a thermal fuse mounted just above the circuit board. If there is one, turn off the power to the unit, pull off the 2 wires connected to it and check it for continuity with a multimeter. If that fuse is blown, nothing works as it controls all power to the unit. Replacement fuse kits (at least here in the U.S.) are readily available on ebay for a fraction of the price that an appliance parts store would want. By looking on ebay for "Whirlpool dishwasher fuse" you can see what the fuse assembly looks like, and if identical to yours, purchase one. If you do buy one, follow the installation instructions exactly by using the supplied wires on the new fuse and the screw terminal block to make the connections. If you don't use the new wiring and connection block and simply plug the new fuse to the old connectors, it will simply blow again in a short time.

DISHWASHER HAS NO POWER. Was running then then stopped in middle of cycle.


Hi,

The first thing to check is your breaker box to make sure the breaker did not trip. If that is okay then you may have a blown thermal fuse inside the control panel. I have put together some instructions on this repair. Follow the link and let me know if it was helpful.

No power or lights in the front panel


Check the fuse / circuit breaker inside washing machine. There may be a extra control circuit fuse normally on the control PCB.

No power and its not the breaker.


Some dishwashers have a thermal fuse located behind the console attached to the main board It is always helpful to include model number off unit as Sears does not make any appliances, they just sell them made by other companies with the kenmore name on them. You could have a GE, Whirlpool, Frigidaire, etc....

Beaumatic Diswasher


Hi,
It could be that the heater is faulty - or the trip switch is worn out causing short cycling.
Does it sound like it is heating properly and getting on with the job - or does it sit for a long time doing aparently nothing?
Could also be the timer / programmer is mechanically damaged, or a component on the main control board, but most likely a heating issue.

Whirlpool Dishwasher,serial number 330251002448 wont stop beeping


The main controller appears to be very confused or failed.
To test, fully remove power from the diswasher for at least 90 seconds. Power back on and test. If the same behaviour is seen, the controller card has almost certainly failed. A service call is the next step to repair.
If you reply, please include the model number of your Whirlpool Dishwasher. Good Luck!
