Kenmore Dishwasher- Thermal Fuse Problem?

Hello-

My Kenmore is around 2 years old and recently it has just stopped working mid cycle and the keypad dies out.

It seems to power back on indescriminately and when it restarts (resuming where it left off) it can stay on for <1 minute or run for 10.

I looked at the circuit diagram and ran the diagnostic but it dies in the middle of that too.

I called an appliance repair guy who, as a result of being stuck in traffic, tried to help me self diagnose it- he seemed to think the computer/circuits were all fine and that it sounded like a fuse was tripping (or a heat sensor?).

However, I can find nothing labeled fuse on the schematic. I'm betting he's right as now that I think about it, it seems to power back on after it has cooled off. I cannot seem to locate the thermal fuse...!?

All connections are snug on the board as are the connections from the dishwasher to the power source. There is no corrosion on the board.

I'm trying to discern my model number but the front of the manual lists the following: 665.1602, 665.1702, 665.1603, 665.1703, 665.1622...

I'm hoping it's something simple. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

If the display works, but the machine doesn't fill, wash, or pump out, the control board is the only component that could cause all these symptoms.

Yeah, I have a similar problem. I tried to go into a suggested diagnostic run, but that didn't yield anything. I tried pushing the Sani-Rinse and Air Dry buttons back and forth a number of times. Didn't help.
At first I thought the lock-on had accidently been engaged, but disengaging the "child lock" doesn't help. The lock-on light comes back on and sometimes blinks rapidly. I"ve counted around 7 rapid blinks at times and 3 rapid blinks at other times--in case that makes a difference. The control panel doesn't work--in other words, the dishwasher does not start, even when I can successfully get other lights to come on. I don't want to spend >$100. for a new control panel if that is not really the problem.

SOURCE: Where is the thermal fuse for Kenmore 665 11073342 dishwasher?

The thermal fuse is located in the front control panel where the circuit board is. You need to remove 4 screws(depending on the type of dishwasher you have) and you will see it. Make sure you change everything not just the fuse but the new wires also.

Hope this fixes your problem

Stopped in mid cycle and wont restart


Hi....I think I can help you with this. I checked a troubleshooting site for Crosley dishwashers, and there could be a couple of reasons why the cycle stopped:
1. The thermal fuse shuts off power to the dishwasher if it overheats. If the thermal fuse blows, it will prevent the dishwasher from starting. To determine if the thermal fuse is defective, use a multimeter to test the fuse for continuity. If the thermal fuse does not have continuity, replace it.
2. The door switch prevents the dishwasher from running while the door is open. If the door switch is defective, the switch will prevent the dishwasher from running even when the door is closed. To determine if the door switch is at fault, use a multimeter to test the switch for continuity. If the switch does not have continuity, replace it.
3. The door latch ensures that the dishwasher door latches shut. If the door does not latch properly, the door switch might prevent the dishwasher from running. If the door latch is broken, replace it.
You can also find more related troubleshooting here:

You'll need the model number for your particular dishwasher.
I hope this has helped you.

No power. Will not turn on


It may have tripped the internal breaker, and or the house circuit breaker. Go tot the house fuse box and check that first.

Kenmore elite dishwasher stops mid cycle


I assume you mean it stopped in mid cycle and is now dead. If this is the case you will need to turn off the power to the dishwasher and remove the screws holding the front control panel There is a thermal fuse clipped to the front of the control panel Check it using an ohmmeter or continuity tester If it is open you will need to replace it with a kit containing the fuse and wire connectors Do not replace just the thermal fuse the problem will surely return. Also inspect the control board for burned areas.If the control board is burned you should replace the wiring harness with the control assembly

Dryer stopped in mid cycle (Kenmore)


Check the door switch. You should hear a click when you push and release it. If no click, replace the switch with this part.
If the switch is good, then the thermal fuse has gone out. Here is a link to that part.

Here is a video to show you how to replace the door switch.

there is no real way of checking the keypad. Not with a meter but if you push normal wash for example and it does not respond this usually means that you have a bad keypad

I have a kenmore dishwasher and it stopped in the middle of a cycle and water is in the bottom. No response from the dishwasher, plug is ok and not tripped. Is there a reset button or not?


When the dishwasher stops in mid cycle and there is no console lights illuminated, then more times than not the thermal fuse has gone out. The thermal fuse is located on the power supply board which is located inside of the console. you must remove the console in order to gain access to the power supply board. the thermal fuse is white and has to wires connected to it. a black wire and a black wire w/white stripe. disconnect the power at the panel box first, before you start. you then remove the old fuse, by "plucking it up" w/ a small flat head screw driver. then you remove the two wires connected to the fuse and place the new fuse in the spot ot the old fuse and place the wires on the new fuse. any order of placement will work. There is a fuse kit that will handle the electrical surges that may have cause the fuse burn out in the first place.
