Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

We replaced thermal fuse (inc all wires), worked for about 2 months. Replaced thermal fuse again, ran it 2x's, 2nd X it broke. We have a new thermal fuse on hand, but need some advice on what could be causing the problems. When the dishwasher does work, it cleans as if new.

Probably a bad heating element, You may want to change that to before replacing the fuse again.

No Heat; Controls, LED work fine


I have the same toaster oven and it developed the same problem.
There is a thermal fuse with a 172C trip point. I replaced it with a new part and it worked fine for another week. I replaced it again with a fuse with a 192C trip point and that's been working for a couple of months now. Some pointers for replacing the fuse.

1) you need a Philips screwdriver with an 11" (30cm) shaft to get at the screws behind the control panel.
2) you only need to take off the feet and open the right side (looking at the toaster from the front).
3) The thermal fuse is in a white flexible plastic tube, held in place with a metal bracket.
4) You can pull the old fuse from the wire clamp using 2 pairs of plyers. I re-used the same clamps to connect the new fuse to the existing wires.
5) Replacement fuses can be found on EBAY for about $1.50 (includes shipping from Hong Kong)

Thermal fuse failure


If the relay sticks, that will cause overheating and the thermal fuse to blow.

Replaced thermal fuse ,ran cycle all the way than died again.Have had to replace fuse in past would usually get 9 months out of it .Replaced it dryer ran fine but after cycle completed dryer was dead...


Have you cleaned the lint out of the airways and the heat exchanger area? The lint filter traps most of the lint but not all, the airways and especially the area where the heating element is still fills up with lint. To get it out, you'll have to take the back off the dryer and open up the enclosure for the heating element and vacuum it out. The lint clogs the airway, which restricts the airflow, which lets the heating element get too hot, which is why the thermal fuse shuts it off. Otherwise, it would catch fire (and in some cases, still does). It should be good for another few years when you get the lint out. Good luck.

Thermal Fuse keep failing


Fuse and element failure is related to lack of air passing over the element. The drum and fan should run even if the heater is inoperative. Find out what is stopping them, then work on heat. If motor is running, there should be air flow--pull vent hose from wall outlet--should be brisk air flow. If not, remove the lint screen and check again. If now ok, soak the lint screen in hot water and detergent. If drum does not turn, check the drive belt and if it sits properly on motor pulley.

Whirlpoool dryer not heating replaced the thermostat


Dont know the model number you have, but most of your items are located in the back of the unit. You need to make sure you replaced the thermostat, and not just the thermal fuse. The thermal fuse sits on top of the element shield, the thermostat is lower, down where the wires go into the element. You may have changed the thermal fuse, but the thermostat may be out. You will need to check (with an ohm meter) all the componants to find the trouble. If that thermal cut-off has went bad again, change the thermostat with it. Be sure you have very good ventilation all the way through, bad vents will cause problems like this all the time. Let me know if you need parts info. Let me know a model number as well.
