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

Fisher and Paykel 7.5 washing machine keeps powering off during rinse and spin cycles

The pump has a thermal safety cut out on it.
If the pump gets too hot it cut out.
Just put a new pump in and your all going again.

Our drain pump was squealing so when the washer stopped mid-cycle

you will need to make sure that the plug is in the pump properly as if it is not the machine will not turn on, also the pump has a thermal over temp inside it so you need to make sure that it has not popped (it is self resetting unless it is faulty), so check the pump for continuity it should be about 32ohms. Also check the pump housing to make sure there is nothing in there restricting water flow

No lights on, didnt complete the drain cycle, stopped working now

There is a thermal fuse located in the control panel inside the door. It could be blown, but if so what caused it. they come with a retrofit pigtail to prevent loose connectins on the fuse. You may have a short somewhere in the dryer, and just blow the fuse again. Could be bad motor,fill valve, or heater, or even the control board. I'd try one fuse first.

Kenmore Elite Oasis - stopped mid-wash!

run it through a diagnostic test cycle; with unit plugged in, but not in operation, press and hold the rinse button for 4 sec, then release for 4 sec, press for 4 sec, release for 4 sec, press for 4 sec,then all the lights on the main control panel will come on indicating enterance into diag mode, let this test cycle through until you get an error code, then correspond that error code with the one in your owners manual and correct as needed, or if there is no error code, check the drain pump by removing the back panel of the unit while there is no power to the unit and disconnecting the hoses from the drain pump and checking for any blockage... if that checks out ok, you may have a software problem and should test these as needed per the service manual that you can order at sears for your unit.

Dishwasher doesnt drain on wash cycle,ok on rinse cycle

Change the circuit board, timer/progrsmer.
Take it out and clean contacts,
Look for burnt circuit line and solder a fine bead carefully on the circuit board, difficult. Use the pot and pan program.

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.

Whirlpool dishwasher stopped working...

It sounds like the thermal fuse in the control console has blown.
Turn power off to unit.
Remove the outer door panel and then the console.
Remove the black plastic cover from over the circuit board if it has one.
You should see the thermal fuse clipped to the circuit board housing.
If you have an ohm meter, check for continuity across it, it should read closed.
If you don't have a meter, unplug the wires from it and and hook them together.
Turn power back on to unit, hold door switches down and cancel cycle. The washer should drain the water.
If this doesn't work, check your door switches to make sure they are closing properly.
