Having the fuse in your dishwasher continuously blow can be very aggravating. While you are waiting for your expert answer, I did some research on the unit. At this time, I was unable to locate information that would be helpful in regards to your question.

this is john again the only thing in the circuit is the heating element and the thermostat. i replaced the thermal fuse once and it blew a second time after runninr through most of the cycle as it did when it blew the first time. this makes me believe there is no short in the circuit. i will check for the resistance of the heating element but usually they open , they don't lower in resistance

Thank you for your question.  I can understand how this recurring issue would quickly become upsetting.  Yes, the dishwasher has both a hi-limit thermostat and a thermistor.  The high limit thermostat is part #661566, key#18 in first image below. If the hi-limit was faulty, the heating element would not get hot. The hi-limit thermostat is basically a normally closed switch which will open and break the electrical circuit to the heating element. When it senses too high of temperature, it opens and breaks the circuit to the heater and when the hi-limit cools down enough, it resets and closes. The hi-limit can be disconnected and tested for continuity with an Ohm meter. It sits under the tub. The thermistor is key #18 in the lower image, part #9743158. Did you replace the thermal fuse or the thermal fuse kit. I would recommend replacing the kit part #3376359.   If the thermal fuse keeps blowing, the wiring harness may need to be replaced. There may be moisture getting in that is affecting the wiring, although I do not see that problem with this model.  I do not see any other problems with this model and you have replaced the control. I added a diagnostic that may help.  If the issues do continue, I recommend scheduling a technician to help diagnose and make repairs.  A Sears technician can be scheduled at Sears Home Services. Please reply if further assistance is needed.  Thank you for using Manage My Life.

how is the diagnostic test used. What do you learn during and after running the test. does it matter if the wires to the vent on the door are connected backwards. will improper connection cause failure of the vent to open ,heat buildup and the fuse to blow if there is no indication of heat on the fuse wires and the comnnections are tight why do they need changed. all power goes thru the tco . could another malfunctioning component cause a power surge which would cause the fuse to blow

Q:

no control pannel lights. dishwasher wont operate

A:

Good afternoon.... I can understand your confusion over your control panel. I wonder if it might not be locked or on the child protective mode. I did locate a link that will discuss your situation in greater detail. Though this link discusses a different model number, the mechanics are likely going to be very similar. Keep in mind that an expert will be responding within the next two business days if not sooner and will likely offer you more information and instruction. I hope this link will help you resolve your dishwasher issue and have a nice day.

I how frustrating it is to have issues with your dishwasher. Based on your symptom it sounds like the control board does not have the proper voltage or the it could have a failed control board or user interface/console. The control board must have 110-120 volts when measuring across the tan wire at P8 and the white wire at P7 when the door is latched. You also should check the thermal fuse if there is no voltage present at P7 to P8. If there is no voltage there and the thermal fuse is good, check the voltage supply at the dishwasher junction box behind the toe panel. NOTE: I do not recommend checking voltages unless you have experience and you feel safe and confident in doing so, otherwise I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dishwasher. 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 . I hope this helps.  If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
