    Where is the thermistor on this dish washer?How is it tested? What causes it to go bad?
    For model number 66517379301
    Hi Pete, Thank you for the question. The thermistor is part of the sensor mounted in the tub.You will need a Multi Meter to check for resistance. The resistance should be between 46K and 52K ohms of resistance at 77 degrees.Sorry I am not sure what caused the thermistor to go bad, it could have been just a defective part. Hope this helps!

    Kitchen aid dishwasher - no power so I checked the thermal fuse - no continuity so I purchased a new fuse kit - powered back up just fine. Ran a normal wash with energy saver dry - dishwasher ran through a couple of cycles fine and then stopped - clean light is blinking seven times then repeats. I tried to reset by touching hi-temp scrub button the energy saver dry button 5 times but it will not clear. Could it be the thermistor or the control board or?
    Hi Gerard, Thank you for the question. The most common reasons for this error is because the water coming from your household is just too cold. The dishwasher is expecting 110 degree water to enter your dishwasher, so if your pipes are cold, the water may only come in luke warm. To correct this issue, just run your faucet next to the dishwasher until the water coming out is hot. Hope this helps!

    I need to replace a leaking thermistor. It is working, but slightly leaking. First, how does it remove, twist and pull? Do you have to push inward before twisting? Also can i just replace the o-ring? Thanks, elliot
    For model number du1148xtpb6
    Hi Elliot. We do not have experience with this specific model but it should just pull out. The o-ring is only sold as part of the assembly. Thank you for your question and good luck with your repair.

        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.
