Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum at your service.
You said, Candy keeps blowing the fuse. It is not the main fuse in the house(was checked). I
You think it may be the heating element. You asked any advice?
I feel you have a short somewhere . and who knows where? How old is the appliance and what did it cost?
I've seen 3 or 4 people in the past 24 hours that replaced the heating element in the same candy 455 dishwasher and still had the problem.
They told me they felt they did not want to spend any more money ont his unit cause they said, it was an inexpensive model!
So my clients told me!
Here is an interesting report I just read.
Repair or replace you appliances?
When to pull the plug on your old Appliance
It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.
Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.
Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your appliance,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.
Follow these guidelines:
When a repair makes sense.
If your appliance is under warranty or less than four years old
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that appliances under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.
When a repair might be a wise choice.
If your appliance is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.
When it pays to replace.
The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new appliance.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive appliance
six or more years old .
Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a appliances you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!
