The link provided by Joseph P. in the above response describes a dishwasher that does not have a fuse.

Your model of Kenmore dishwasher does have that thermal fuse in the console. The first image below shows a portion of the wiring diagram for this dishwasher with the thermal fuse (also called TCO -- Thermal Cut-Out) circled in red. The second image shows a parts diagram. The thermal fuse is Key 18 on that diagram. I provided a picture of the fuse in the third image. According to your description, it is likely that this thermal fuse is blown in your dishwasher. You can order a replacement fuse from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number is 675813. Here is a direct link for that part: Thermal fuse . The 4th image shows how to replace that component. Be sure that you shut off the circuit breaker or unplug the dishwasher before accessing internal components. You can remove screws from the inner door panel to release the console.

Before starting the dishwasher, check the heating element and other components. Look for apparent damage or loose wires. After you replace the thermal fuse, be sure that you carefully check the operation of the dishwasher. A problem with the heating element or drive motor could have caused the thermal fuse to blow. It will blow again if a component failure still exists.

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

NOTE: This answer is based on Kenmore dishwasher with the full model number of 665.15819990. Use that full model number for accessing the parts diagram if necessary.

Lyle, the information you supplied above is excellent. I have the same symptom (no power on the control panel). There is power to the machine. It actually quit before draining. Does the same fuse work with Model 665.15895791? Thank you.

The parts diagram for that dishwasher shows the same type of thermal fuse in the console (part number 675813). If that thermal fuse is blown, then the console will be dead. You can shut off the breaker for the dishwasher and check that fuse. I provided a link below this response that shows a video on how to test that fuse. If the fuse is "open" then it will need to be replaced. Use the harness that comes with that kit to replace the fuse (with the circuit breaker for the dishwasher shut off). If the fuse is okay, then you could have a bad electronic control board in the dishwasher. Let us know if you need more help with this problem.

I have a similar dishwasher and have replaced the themal fuse (twice) as well as door switch (once). I was having some trouble with the door switch and assumed that it was causing the problem ...Wrong!! A couple of questions for Joseph, but first of all, I commend you for providing a geat article on this issue. Question 1) Why is the wiring included with the above mentioned parts and why do you recommend repacing them? Question 2) Both times the dishwasher failed, there was a significant amount of water in the base of dishwaher. We don't use heat dry so I assume it wouldn't be the heater element. Does this suggest that the pump motor is the cause of the fuse failure?

Hello Robert. If you have the type of dishwasher that is described by Michael then the wiring harness is included because the kit is used for several different models. Some of the models will benefit from using that wiring harness. If the thermal fuse failed, then the drain pump will have no power to pump out the water. A problem with a check valve or the drain path can also prevent the water from draining properly. Reply with additional details and the full model number of your dishwasher if you need more help. With that model number, we may be able to provide more detailed help.

Thanks for response Lyle. My third thermal fuse arrived and I plan to do the install this week. My diswasher is a Kenmore Ultra Dishwasher, Model # 665.17002 400. A local appliance technician advised me to install the wiring harness that came with the thermal fuse. I hadn't done this on the 2 previous fuse replacements and am curious why he would recommend this? Is there a history of faulty electrical connections or perhaps I misunderstood the advice (deliverd via a 3rd party)? After the last fuse install, I got about 7 wash cycles before another failure...again leaving a lots of water in the base. Note: drain path has been checked and is clear. Your advice is appreciated!

Robert,

Lyle is taking some vacation time. I will be answering his questions for a few days.

It is unlikely that the drain pump is causing the thermal fuse to fail, but you can ohm the drain winding from the control board to make sure it is within specifications. I am including the wiring diagram below. Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts. The connections were found to be causing excess heat. The harness that is included with the fuse kit is to ensure that the connections are good. We have always recommended that the entire fuse kit be installed.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance please reply to this post.
