    What is the continuity range for the thermostat?
    For model number Fgbd2431kw1
    Hi John, Thank you for your question. If the display on the ohms meter reads zero then the thermostat has continuity and the low temperature limit is functioning. If the ohms meter displays a number greater than zero then the thermostat is faulty. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

    I need this part, but i also need the wire that connects to it and connects to what honestly looks like a spark plug on the bottom of my dishwasher. I managed to find this part number but i can't find a part number for the wire.
    Hello Jessica and thanks for writing. We would be happy to do some research to find you the correct parts. However, we need your model number and the brand name to locate any information on this. Model numbers can be short or long, and could have a mixture of numbers and letters.

    Does a burnt, disconnected high temperature thermostat, cause the control board and switch to not aluminate or function? Should the machine still work with out it?
    For model number FDBB1940DS1
    Hi Gino, Thank you for your question. If the main control board is not working and there is nothing on the display, you will need to replace it. The part number listed under your model number for the main control board is PS816016. We hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

        Sorry, we couldn't find any existing installation instruction that matched.
        Water in dishwasher did not heat up. Dishes came out dirty and greasy. Some fungus started to grow in dishwasher.
        Unplugged the dishwasher. Closed and disconnected the water supply. Removed two screws that attached the dishwasher to the countertop. Pulled the dishwasher out from underneath the countertop. Laid the dishwasher on its side to access the bottom. The high limit thermostat had shorted out and showed signs of electrical burn. I removed the high limit thermostat by unscrewing the single screw that holds it in place. I then pulled the two electrical terminals off the high limit thermostat . One terminal (i.e. small electrical plug connecting electrical wire to high limit thermostat) was burned badly. I cut it off the wire and attached a generic terminal bought at local hardware store (six for $3). The other terminal was fine. I plugged the new high limit thermostat in and attached it with the single screw to the dish washer. Put the dishwasher back in place. Test ran dish washer and dishes came out shiny, clean and dry. Done.

        high limit thermostat was open
        Disconnected power to the unit at the circuit breaker. Removed the bottom panel of the dishwasher. Used a stubby Phillip screwdriver to remove the single retaining screw holding the high limit thermostat against the bottom of the dishwasher tub. Not only was the thermostat burned out, one of it's electrical connectors was also destroyed. Removed the tape holding the cable bundle together so that I could work on the quick disconnect plug outside of the unit. One end of the quick disconnect plug was completely burned through and needed to be replaced. After doing the necessary electrical repairs and assembling the new thermostat into position I applied power and everything worked fine. It helped having a picture on your website that I could use to identify the correct replacement part.

        Heater High-Limit Thermostat Failed
        As another poster had written, on terminal on the thermostat was burned off, most likely due to poor contact by the female spade connector on the end of one of the wires. Removed the DW, tipped it back to gain access, removed the failed thermostat, installed the new one, crimped a new terminal on the end of the wire, and re-installed the DW. Tested all cycles with the heat on and everything worked as designed. Very simple repair, took more time to get the DW out and put it back in than to replace the part and repair the wire.

        Dishes were not getting clean, always had a film on them and dishes didn't dry.
        I removed the kick panel at the bottom front of the dishwasher. Then using a flashlight and a cross point screwdriver, I removed the thermostat from about the middle left. It requires a short screwdriver, but not quite as short as a stubby. I unplugged the wires, noting that one of them was a little burnt looking. The burnt looking connector was still okay. I then installed the new one, with the green dot on the thermostat having the slightly burnt looking connector. Then I ran a load of dishes and the dishwasher worked as it was supposed to. It has worked okay twice since then.
