I removed the screws from the inside of the door which revealed the elctrical panel and seperate fuse assembly. I simply pulled the old fuse off the wires and pushed the other onto the wires. I then held the door onto the face of the dishwasher while reinstalling the screws. Very easy and inexpensive repair.Plesae note: I decided to repair the dishwasher myself after calling a repair guy who, after inspection, told me the electrical panel had to be replaced for a cost of $409.00, I decided to see if it was a simple fuse. (Which it was)

First turned off the power at the breaker box. I removed the screws on the inside of the dishwasher, then took off the front touch pad control panel. Removed the old fuse, tested it, orderd a new one. Left the DW dismantled while I waited for the new part. Then put it all back together. I have also replaced the latch on this same DW, but they were both pretty easy.
I had replaced the control board a month or two earlier. Then smelled plastic burning. I noticed the Sta-con connecters in the molex plug had burned - that's what took out the control board. The fuse assembly came with new connectors - so you know this is a known problem with the machine. If you're handy you can buy the thermal fuse from Newark for $0.88 and replace it by soldering - but you need to replace the sta-cons. They corrode and the bad connection causes the heat making the thermal trip.
replaced the fuse in the door
Followed the other repair instructions on this site to replace the fuse assembly. I could not have figured this out without the drawings and user descriptions. Thanks!
Removed the inner door panel and then the circuit board protective cover (which just snaps in). Fuse assembly is readily accessible and just snaps in. The wires are attached with spade lugs using existing wiring. No wiring modificatins needed,
Fuse assembly was blown do to the switch connector wiring being loose. This created extreme heat and tripped the fuse. I replace the fuse and switch assembly and made sure all connections were firm and secure. First remove power from the unit.Remove 4 screws that hold the from panel. Remove the panel and unhook the ribbon connector. Remove the other six screws and slid the inner panel down and out. I then removed the switch assembly and installed the new one. Re-attached the inner panel and then the control panel. Turned power back on.
