I think you need to get a new knob, write down the model number and make and take the pieces to your local domestic appliance supplier, there might be something similar in stock. Now I do mean the kind of small supplier that understands this kind of fault, not your local Walmart etc.!
You'll need to remove what it left of the old knob off the spindle.
The new knob will just push straight on.

    Hi Mist4pat,



    That is the Timer release lever.  It attaches to the Cup mechanism, and the timer behind the Knob.  When the timer moves this arm, it triggers the cup to release the detergent.

No power going to front panel on whirlpool dishwasher gu2455xtsso


If the model number you listed this question under is correct, there is a thermal fuse (also known as a bi-metal) located inside the control panel of the dishwasher. The part number for the thermal fuse replacement is W10258275.

If you type in your model number you can utilize the exploded view parts diagrams at pcappliancerepair.com, appliancepartspros.com or searspartdirect.com to assist you in locating the part. The fuse is listed as item 6 under the "Control Panel Parts" section.


To replace the fuse, follow these steps:

1. Make sure the dishwasher is unplugged or the breaker is turned off.

2. Open the door and remove only the top screws directly behind the control panel.

3. Remove the protective cover from back of the control panel to expose the main control board.

The thermal fuse should be mounted to the control board. If you remove it and take a resistance check, it should read close to 0 ohms, if good. If bad, replace as necessary.


If you have any questions about this repair, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Can't find the model number on Frigidaire dishwasher


The nomenclature should be located on the left side on the inside of the tub right by the front when you open the door. It is most likely an fdb series example fdb1050. however the drain hose pn 154606701 is the factory replacement for most frigidaire dishwashers ten years or less.

I need to replace my Frigidaire dishwasher detergent/rinse dispenser part number 154574401. How do I remove the old dispenser from the door? Are there screws or does it simply pop out of the door?


The dispenser is usually mounted by a series of screws from the INSIDE of the door panel. You need to turn the breaker off to the dishwasher, open the door, and remove the inside door panel to access the dispenser. There also should be a couple of electric connectors going to the dispenser motor. Use care not to pull the wires when removing the panel. HINT: If your dishwasher is like most dishwashers, the door will try to close on you from the tension of the door springs. You can disconnect the door springs, which may require unmounting the dishwasher from its under-counter position, or you can make this process easier, by finding something to prop the door open with. I usually use a thick dowel rod, or cut off broom handle to prop the door open against the cabinet. I hope this helps you. If you need further assistance, please let me know.

PS For future reference, please post your complete model number when submitting questions about your applainces. This makes the process of assisting you much easier as all makes and models are NOT made the same.

Smeg Dishwasher - model unknown


model numbers for dishwashers are generally where you can get to from the front, if they are noit on the front panel then look inside the door rim where the rubber seal is, either a small sticker on the door rim itself (inside) or where the door fits on the main cabinet, open the door fully to look for this sticker, sometimes placed under the front of the lid

Power to dishwasher and will not run


Check your thermal fuse. It will be inside the control panel, clipped to the control board somewhere. It's usually a white plastic square piece with two wires connected to it. The fuse should read a short. If the fuse is blown, you will need to replace it. If the fuse reads good, I would suspect you have a control board problem. Make sure you secure power to the dishwasher BEFORE you take any resistance checks, however. Even if the fuse is blown, you could still have live voltage on one side of the fuse. If you cannot find the fuse, there should be a tech sheet with wiring diagrams inside the lower kick plate below the door. This could be a tremendous help you as well. Let me know what you find.

Stops in the middle of the wash cycle


HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM WITH THE SAME MAYTAG MODEL DISHWASHER. THE PROBLEM IS WITH THE CONTROL PANEL ASSEMBLY HAVING ONBOARD COMPONENTS NOT SODERED CORRECTLY TO THE MAIN CONTROL BOARD. THESE LOOSE OR COLD SOLDER CONNECTIONS HAVE TO BE REHEATED,RESOLDERED WITH A SOLDERING IRON . THE ON BOARD COMPONENTS THAT I WAS HAVING PROBLEMS WITH WAS THE BLUE BOX LOOKING COMPONENT,SOLID STATERELAY, AND THE RAISED RESISTOR,HAS COLORED BANDS AROUND IT. THESE COMPONENTS ARE LOCATED ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE PRINTED CIRCUIT BOARD FACING THE DISHWASHER LOOKING OVER THE TOP. TO MAKE THE REPAIR, TURN OFF THE CIRCUIT BREAKER TO THE DISHWASHER, OPEN THE FRONT DOOR AND REMOVE THE 10 SCREWS THAT HOLD THE DOOR TOGETHER. THIS WILL ALLOW ACCESS THE THE CONTROL PANEL.. IF YOU DO NOT FEEL QUALIFIED TO MAKE THIS REPAIR USING A LOW WATTAGE SOLDERING IRON YOU CAN ORDER THE CONTROL ASSEMBLY LED FROM PARTSSELECT.COM. FOR ABOUT 100 DOLLERS. THEY ARE ABOUT THE CHEAPEST. FOLLOW THE ON SCREEN INSTRUCTIONS TO ORDER THIS ASSEMBLY.THE ASSEMBLY PART CAN BE FOUND IN THE CONTROL PANEL PARTS ILLUSTRATION. WHEN SEARCHING FOR THIS PART YOU MUST SEARCH USING YOUR DISHWASHER MODEL NUMBER. THIS INFORMATION CAN BE FOUND ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE TUB OF THE DISHWASHER AFTER OPENING THE FRONT DOOR. ALSO, WHEN LOOKING FOR THIS PART IT WILL BE LISTED TWICE,AS SERIES 10, OR SERIES 24. YOU MUST ORDER THE CORRECT SERIES. THE SERIAL NUMBER ON THE SAME PLATE THAT THE MODEL NUMBER WILL PROVIDE THIS INFORMATION. IF YOUR SERIAL NUMBER STARTS WITH A 10 ORDER THE SERIES 10, WITH A 24, ORDER THE SERIES 24. WHILE YOU ARE ORDERING CHECK YOUR LATCH HANDLE, THE SIDE PIN WAS BROKEN MAKING IT HARD TO OPEN THE DISHWASHERS FRONT DOOR. ONE OTHER THING YOU MIGHT WANT TO CHECK IS THE FLOAT SWITCH OPERATION. MINE WAS STICKING. TO ACCESS THIS REMOVE THE 4 SCREWS THAT HOLD THE PANEL .THE FLOAT SWITCH IS LOCATED TO THE LEFT.WITH THIS PANEL REMOVED CHECK FOR ITS FREE NONSTICKING OPERATION. IT CAN BE DISMANTLED AND CORRECTED. A SERVICE SHEET IS LOCATED, ATTACHED TO THE INSIDE OF THIS PANEL.IT HAS GOOD TROUBLESHOOTING INFORMATION INCLUDING A AUTOMATIC FUNCTION TEST.THIS TEST PROVIDES A DIAGNOSTIC ANALYSIS THAT WAS EXTREMELY HELPING FOR ME TO DETERMINE MY PROBLEM AND CORRECT THE MALFUNCTION CONSIDERING I AM NOT A APPLIANCE REPAIRMAN. I HOPE THIS INFORMATION IS BENEFITICAL. REGARDS.
