SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Dishwasher Problem

The dishwasher should have a thermal fuse mounted to the control board behind the operator console4.gif. It is a small silver colored device4.gif attached to a white plactic bracket. In some model dishwashers the wrong gage wiring was used causing the wires to heat up and trip the thermal fuse. There was no apparent risk of fire or anything like that, but the thermal fuses didn't tolerate the heat differential too well. A fix for the problem was to purchase a thermal fuse replacement kit (found at most appliance repair stores) that had thicker wires. The part number for the thermal fuse kit is 959376 and the price is $16.85. You can find it at repairclinic.com. Order on line and have the part shipped directly to you. Now...to access the control board perform the following:

1. Turn off the main breaker to the dishwasher. This is important. Even though the dishwasher is not running, the control board still has live voltages present.
2. Open dishwasher door and remove the top screws that hold the console in place. You shouldn't have to remove the lower screws unless you plan on removing the entire door panel.
3. The control panel should pull off from the front enough to where you can access the control board. There is a thermal fuse mounted on the board with two wire leads going to it. The fuse is silver in color and mounted to a plastic bracket which is mounted to the control board.
4. Cut the wires on the old fuse and splice the new fuse kit to it. Leave plenty of wire to accommodate. There will be instructions included with your replacement kit. Ensure you follow the direction thoroughly and tighten the wire lug screws securely.

NOTE: Do not attempt to reuse the existing wires by simply unplugging the old fuse and replacing it with the new one (been there). The fuse will eventually blow again. Follow the instructions provided and you can't go wrong.

If you have any further quesitons, or if you run into trouble during your repairs, let me know. Good luck to you.

PS If you do not wish to order on line, take the part number I provided you to any major appliance repair shop4.gif and they SHOULD have the part available. This is a known problem and a common fail item.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Ultra Wash Dishwasher - top rack arm not spinning

Hi: I just posted a similar problem, but found a solution. After taking the arm, etc. apart (and verifying no blockages), I thought maybe the lack of water pressure was being caused by the fact that there are TWO holes for the top spray arm (higher and lower rack setting) on my model. ie. that water was being forced out of both holes, causing a drop in water pressure, which was causing the top spray arm to stop spinning. I plugged the unused hole with a wine bottle cork (to keep the water from spraying out the unused hole), and voila, it now works.

I wish all appliance fixes were this easy...!

Kenmore Elite dishwasher won't clean and leaves white film


CHANCES ARE YOUR WATER TEMP IS TOO COOL and the 2nd
PROBLEM IS VERY HARD WATER THAT IS CAUSING THE WHITE RESIDUE. RAISE THE TEMP ON HOUSEHOLD WATER TO 140 F AND ADD SOME SALT TO THE WASH CYCLE. LASTLY USE A LIQUID DETERGENT LIKE LIQUID CASCADE.

Kenmore elite dishwasher wont work


Remove the console panel with T15. then remove the cover from the main control board. top right of center of the main control you will see a removable fuse, either a black disc with a black and a black/w white strip connected. remove one wire from the thermal fuse and check for continuity. if it is open replace it. if it is not open call for service.

Kenmore dishwasher elite door opens too fast, broken spring?


Could be that, the spring may have unhooked or it could be a defective damper connected to the door. Remove the side panels and check the operation of the door mechanism. (This will probably require the removal of the rear panel to gain access to the necessary fastners).

I have a kenmore elite model 16582200 built in


Item #959376(fuse) will need to be replaced.
Unplug the dishwasher.
Remove the 6 screws holding the control panel on.
The fuse is on the top right side of the control panel. It has 2 wires going to it,usually black and white.
Remove the wires and check the fuse with a meter set for continuity. No continuity is a bad fuse.
If the fuse checks OK use the meter on the micro door switch found under the door latch.
Remove the wires to the switch,touch the meter leads to the 2 terminals and manually push the switch button in. If no reading on the meter the door switch is bad..

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.

Control panel access


Open the door and remove the top screws connected to the console. Close the door and flip the console down toward you. Remove the control cover to gain access to the control board and the thermal fuse.
