I verified there was power present. Unplugged power cord. Then identified the thermal fuse from schematic on control board and found it to be open via multimeter. I then received the new thermal fuse, installed it, and the unit works like new.

To Prevent This Problem: Make Sure Your Utensils And Items You Are Washing DO NOT Rub Against The Door Seal When Pulling Out The Bottom Rack To Emptying The Dish Washer... The Original Door seal is held in place in a metal channel. To remove it you just carefully pull out the old seal. It is recommended that prior to installing the new seal you clean the channel and then put silicon sealant in the channel and install the new seal. Be nice and neat and just cut off the Silicon Tube Nozzle so about a 1/8 in bead of silicon comes out of the tube and goes into the channel. Make sure the channel is filled with silicon evenly (you get more than enough in the tube). Push in the seal so that it seats properly, and most importantly so that the ends of the seal extend past the ends of the channel. (I don't know why the manufacturer can't provide a new seal that is 3 inches longer than required, instead of 1 inch longer than required. Its easy to cut off the excess.)... Of course it takes 24 hours for silicon to fully cure and the curing process should be accomplished with the dishwasher door Closed and Latched. (Instructions are included in the repair kit) ...

I received the gasket promptly. The instructions were easy to follow. We did not use the dishwasher for 24 hours as instructed. It has worked perfectly for 2 weeks. I feel I saved $200 by purchasing the gasket on line and installing it myself.

Remove power to the machine. My particular installation did not require physically removing water and drain lines. Remove the dishwasher from the cavity. Put a towel or two down on the floor. Lay the washer on its face on the towels and this orients the motor in the up position on the bottom of the washer. CAREFULLY unplug the motor wiring harness but if possible, leave the heating element connection in place as spade connectors tend to lose their grip with multiple engagements. Remove the single bolt located between the motor and stainless bottom of the cavity that locks the motor in place. Leave it in the cardboard shield, that really helps in reinstalling it. CCW rotation of the motor disengages it from its housing. Work the motor straight up and out of the housing. This was the most difficult part of the entire process due to the metal housing not quite clearing the plastic pump housing where they mate, but its do-able. Nothing should have to be forced. Now you have the motor in hand. Be very attentive how and what order you disassemble. Remove the back of the motor housing to block the armature to remove the impeller. DO NOT NICK THE FIELD WIRING IN THE MOTOR. I believe the threads were left hand but I don't remember the rotation. They do tighten in the direction of the motor rotation though. Carefully pry the seal out of the pump housing with many short lifts as to not mar the housing itself. Added a little dishwashing detergent on the outside of the new seal and carefully pushed it into place with the end of my screwdriver. Don't cut yourself on the metal insert in the center of the seal.Reassemble the impeller to the shaft WITH the spacer that comes with the new impeller kit. Make sure the impeller is tightened down completely to the end of the threads to insure proper clearances when reassembled. Don't force or over tighten. You'll feel a positive stop. Reassemble the motor to the housing Lubricate the housing o ring seal on the outside with a VERY small amount of dishwashing liquid lest you create a suds factory on startup. Replace the holding bolt on the pump housing. Reconnect the motor leads and heater element if removed. Stand the washer back up. There will probably be water around the door area from the pump when the machine is returned to the upright position. Reconnect lines and check under the pump housing for leaks while in operation being careful not to get into moving parts or electrical connections. Good luck.

A few weeks ago there was a grinding noise when running the dishwasher. We ignored it. About a week later the top rack stopped getting any water. I cleaned the chopper assembly but the problem came back after a week. Looking more closely, the chopper was damaged and the impeller had been stripped (p

The video is very helpful for replacing the Chopper Assembly. For the Impeller, reference the video for replacing the motor: http://youtu.be/pAKz1gMUWDA But once you have the motor removed and you identify the impeller, you need to insert a tool into the back of the motor to hold the impeller still from the back while you unscrew it in the front (I used a small wrench, a thin screwdriver would be ok too). Then, just screw on the new piece and follow the rest of the video to put everything back together again. Nothing this stay-at-home mom couldn't handle while the kids watched a tv show.

brocken door balance cord

It was a fairly easy repair job after we got the dishwasher out of its space in the counter. To accomplish this make sure that the water line is shut off and disconnected and allows enough movement to move the washer out at least far enough to expose the balance cord and spring. Ensure that the electrical connection line shut off and is free enough to allow movement of the washer. Finally, ensure that the dishwasher is lowered, if necessary, to clear any obstructions, top and bottom. Move the washer out far enough to work on her balance cord and get on with the repair job.

Access to springs

To avoid disconnecting hoses, dishwasher could only be moved about 3/4 out from the cabinet. Stretching springs to allow connecting opposite end of cord to connection point required me to use locking wrench to grab end of spring and stretch it far enough to allow plastic loop to attach to door bracket.,. Video shows dishwasher on a platform with easy access to springs and cord connection points, which made this job much easier.
