Thanks, Marc. Any idea how to follow this suggestion that was in the response you referred me to: "If the dishwasher is totally dead then there is good chance the thermal fuse located inside the console is faulty" I don't know how to locate the thermal fuse or if that's even something a consumer can do.

Thanks for your question about the dishwasher not coming on, sorry to hear you are having this problem. I will be happy to assist.
It does sound like there is no power to the control, and you have checked the breaker. The next thing I suggest is checking the wiring at the power supply box under the dishwasher. To access this you must remove the service panel at bottom of dishwasher, always disconnect power supply before servicing appliance and when testing live voltage wear safety equipment there you will see the power cord interning a small box, remove the screw and cover you will now see the power connectors. Check with a volt meter for 120 volts between black and white. If there is no power the problem is in your supply to the unit. If you have proper voltage, then refer to the below attachment and check the thermal fuse. (Just click on link)I hope this helps, if you need additional help please reply with more details.

Thanks Ron H.

Ron: While I appreciate your reply, your suggestion is far more technical and requires far more expertise than the average consumer has, particularly since this involves working with electricity. Most non-professionals are leery of working with electricity problems. I had a repairman out yesterday and he fixed the problem in less than 5 minutes. He took off the inside panel of the door, unplugged and plugged back in one of the many cords inside the door (he referred to it as "resetting" the dishwasher) and all was fine. I find it very upsetting and not very consumer-friendly that this is such a common occurrence - according to the repairman - yet there isn't an easy and safe way for the consumer to do this reset on their own. I spent $130+ for a 5 minute repair and nothing was even broken, an internal plug merely needed to be unplugged and plugged back in. We have had this dishwasher for slightly over a year. My previous dishwasher - not a Kenmore - lasted more than 15 years. It never needed a single repair or "reset" and was only replaced due to a kitchen remodel. The repairman yesterday tried at least 3 times to convince me to buy the extended warranty for $90/year. If Kenmore truly thinks one of their appliances will incur more than $450 in repairs over a 5 year period, then something is definitely wrong with the way it is building appliances. I do have the extended warranties on my Kenmore washer & dryer but those are not only much higher ticket items, but the warranties include an annual maintenance check. Obviously there is a flaw in Kenmore's idea of manufacturing appliances as it appears repair problems are "built in" to their appliances.

Hello Sheri, I am sorry that there was a problem with your dishwasher and you had to have service out. sears does and always has required the highest quality appliances from the manufacture, and it is concerning that you had any failure so soon with your dishwasher, In no way are there built in failures on any product sold by Sears. As far as additional warranties, it is recommended with all products as the cost of service continues to rise for Sears and all appliance service industries. Respectfully Ron H.

Q:

How can I test the thermal fuse on my Kenmore dishwasher model 66513833K600?

A:

To check the thermal fuse you will need a volt ohm meter. Turn the meter to the horse shoe symbol this is the ohm setting. With the wires removed from the thermal fuse place a meter lead on each terminal of the thermal fuse. Your reading should be close to 0. If you get a reading of ol {open load} the thermal fuse needs to be replaced. The part number for the thermal fuse is W10258275 and can be purchased from this link.
