Unplug the dishwasher. Simply removed 8 screws on the inside of the door, removed the interior door panel. Next popped of the plastic protective electrical panel cover. Locate the Thermal fuse that had simple instructions provided. Removed the fuse and replaced the harness. Put everything back together. Plugged dishwasher back into electrical outlet...Dishwasher resumed with the cycle that the dishwasher was in when the fuse blew. Simple, Fast AND Reliable!!!

Got Maintenance Flyer out an read about problem
Removed access plate
Disconnectd water and drain
Removed anchor screws
Pulled unit out and disconnedted from Electric
Flipped on it's back
Ohmed out all heat related items and found discrepency with Thermisitor resistance
Ordered and received Part
Changed out Thermisitor
Checked wiring to Heater and replaced connections
Hooked electric up
Ran Diognostics per Maintenance flyer and cleared fault
Hooked back up and ran like a champ

The reason it took so long is because I put the old thermisitor back in and tryed to run the diognostics just to make sure that was the problem

There were eight of the star head screws to remove to take the front off the dishwasher, then just followed the instructions that came with the part, which was a thermal fuse and the new wiring that accompanied the fuse in the order. The hardest part was getting the old wire out of the harness with the other three, but once I figured that out just slid the new wire into place and made the connections. I reinserted the screws, turned the power on and knock on wood shes still working.

it would turn off and on mid-cycle and finally quit completely

I turned off the circuit. I removed the interior side of the door and then the plastic covering over the electrical wires and switches (I counterbalanced the door with a couple of half gallon juice containers). I removed the wires attached to the switch on the door handle and the door handle itself. The handle and switch parts disassembled and I replaced the switches (part of kit). I cut off the singed wire and the other three beyond the damaged portion and stripped the wires and connected the extensions (part of kit). I attached the new wires to the switches and closed up the interior door. Lastly, I turned the circuit breaker back on. All was well!

Dishwasher's "clean" light just blinked - wouldn't run. Repairman came and found out problem and suggested I could fix it myself

Since I had watched a repairman diagnose the problem, it was eash to reproduce how to pull the unit out from the wall and find the faulty part to remove it and replace it with the new thermistor. Two wires to disconnect and connect and repair nearly complete. Pushed it back in, screwed it back to the cabinet and installed foot plate and done.

There was no problem

I simply had to hook up the power cord to the dishwasher so i could plug it into the outlet rather than direct wire the appliance. Everything went very smoothly. Everything needed for installation other than tools was provided. Easy to follow instructions if you know a little about electrical wiring.

The part was exactly like the one in the dishwasher, and the picture that came alongwith the part was perfect.I removed the screws to separate the outer door from the inner part. Removed the plastic cover from the control unit, and recognised the part right away. It was then a simple task for removing the old part and installing the new one. Reassembled the door, and the dishwasher worked perfectly. G.E. Buena Park, CA

Screws on the door of the dishwasher were very loose.

Dishwasher quit working, clean light flashing

After reading the manual that a flashing green light is caused by a heater circuit, I assumed that the cause was the heater element. I found PartSelect on the web, ordered the element and received it the following day. I watched the video on installation and replaced it within a half hour. Unfortunately, the clean light still flashed. I went back to PartSelect site, read other peoples comments and ordered a thermistor. The delivery took one day and the replacement less than a half hour. Again, the light flashed. I ordered the high temp thermostat, received it immediately, changed it out and still had the flashing clean light. From the Part Select site, I learned the hi-temp/heated dry combination reset after the wash cycle for the rinse cycle without the heated dry. Dishes come out clean. I'm afraid to order the controller for over $120.00 and have the same outcome. I wish I had invested in an ohm meter. I am very happy with the PartSelect web site. It is very informative, easy to locate the parts and very quick delivery times.

Dishwasher would not run at all and lots of lights blinked all at once.
