Question about Kenmore 24 in. 17602 / 17604 / 17609 Built-in Dishwasher
I was just on the Whirlpool website, who makes my Kenmore dishwasher. I just remembered they came out over a year ago and replaced parts near heater/motor. Looking at the recall I think this maybe what's causing my thermal fuse to blow. What do you think?? Thanks for the help! Gina
There was a recall on certain models of Kenmore dishwashers. This recall was to replace the heating element. If it lasted a year it is possible that the element could have went bad again, but not likely. There are several things that can cause the thermal fuse to blow. I would recommend having and authorized repair company take a look at it for you as the part they installed over a year ago would no longer be under warranty.
I hope this helps.

mantal, first thing I would check would be the power connections. I have seen a lot of these fuses blown because of loose wire nuts to line and nuetral. If that is ok, suspect one of the componets overheating. Ohm out the motor windings, with the capacitor disconnected. Should be around 3-7 ohms, run windings, 6-10 aux. windings. Check the tech sheet behind the toe panel to make sure. Next, heater element. Look for damaged element. Should ohm at 10 to 30 ohms. Leads disconnected, power off on all tests. Look for any loose connection on any harnesses. Catriver

SOURCE: Kenmore Dishwasher, no power
There will be a thermal fuse located on the electronic control board housing that may have failed.This replaceable part (gray or white) is clipped on to the side of the plastic housing.

Watch the light closely. If it blinks 7 times then pauses, this indicates a heater or door latch issue.

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

You didn't list model number. remove screws on inside of door to have access to controls. There should be a thermal fuse square object with two wires attached. Some brands now come with short pigtail wires, so bad terminals are eliminated. IF it's a kenmore, then go to www.searspartsdirect.com You can see parts diagram there.

First...make sure you visit the Bosch dishwasher recall website as this model is under the recall with a faulty controller which may cause a fire! Check your model under http://microsites.boschappliances.com/safetyrecall/dishwasher/
then call 800.856.9226 to setup a recall repair appointment. We just found out about this recall and was never notified by Bosch even though we registered our unit after we purchased it...talk about poor customer service! Hope this helps!
