Ordered the fuse kit and followed the directions included. Pretty straightforward, the only issue was fitting all the wires back in the case. I actually found that the ties added to the clutter, so I did not tie the wires together. Other than that, was very pleased with my decision to spend $25 for the part and do it myself versus spending $100+ to have someone else do it.Note that my dishwasher required a star-shaped screwdriver head to reach the board. I had one so not an issue, but worth noting...
I opened the front panel on the dishwasher and measured the resistance across the fuse. It was open. I ordered the fuse assembly and installed it. Dishwasher is working fine. The part images on found on www. Partselect. Com helped immensely
had the back panel unscrewed which gave me access to the control panel. un-clicked the old fuse and plugged in the new one.
We knew there was power going to unit, tested electrical wall switch. My husband temporarily "bypassed" fuse and everything lit up. From other user's comments, took a stab that Fuse Kit might be the problem. Piece arrived within 3 days! The unit fired up, worked successfully 3 times and QUIT AGAIN! Having read something about the heating element causing problems, taking a desperate leap of faith the day before Thanksgiving cleanup, we temporarily put an auto parts fuse in for the moment, DO NOT USE HEAT DRY and it continues to work fine. For as much as this unit costs, with the heat-dry element feature as an option, a little disturbing not being able to use it or the fuse blows. We will order another thermal Fuse Kit in the near future and reinstall it. As for potential problems with the stove, fridge or D/W again, (all KitchenAid) this is my first place to check for parts. Thank you. Good Luck to all you trouble shooting DIY-ers!!!
Verified power to panel; dishwasher started when fuse by-passed. Ordered fuse kit and wire harness. Based on advice from one individual on web site I did not follow instructions but merely plugged in new fuse kit, rather than splicing in new wire harness. Dishwasher worked for 20 minutes and then fuse blew again. Ordered kit again, followed instructions (took 5 minutes more). Works fine. Elliot
Followed instructions from web site.
called Sears as unit only ran some times...service man came and it ran...$125...said was most likely the control panel and it would be and additional $325 for him to get the part and come back and install...told him I think I can install if it stops again...it failed about a week later and would not start...went to PartSelect to purchase the panel...whle looking up the part I read the section on analyzing the problem in "free repair help" and noted that 65% of the time it is the fuse...I checked the fuse for continuity and found none...figured why not try a $15 part first...it came...followed the easy instructions...dishwasher works great...saved over $300...thanks PartSelect for being more than just a parts warehouse
I found the problem when I found one of the torque screw partially out. The door was not closing properly. The heat blow the fuse. I removed the head were the control board is found and replaced it with the new kit. When you add the new fuse kit. It is needed to cut the old wire from the old fuse and adapt the new wire harness by stripping the wire . Then screw the wire tight to the adapter. And it's done. Also make sure to test the cycle of the dishwasher ,by timing it. All came out good. It's operational.
Remove inner door cover and replace fuse. Wire harness was not needed.
Followed instructions in fuse kit. The fuse had been replaced before, so I did not have to cut wires.Repair was successful, dishwasher operational.
