You should be able to resolve the wire connection problem by cutting off the original connection on the wire harness going to that thermistor right at the end. Strip the wires and install some new female connection spades that you can find at your local hardware store or electronics supply store. You can take the thermistor with you to the store to find some connectors that will fit those male spades. Once you get the wire connected on the thermistor, reassemble the dishwasher and see if it works. Check for leaks. If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

NOTE: Be sure that you have the house circuit breaker for the dishwasher shut off when accessing internal components.

So the wiring harness on the original equipment has 6 yellow wires.....the new part has 2 connections. Which two wires of the 6 do I use? I know which connectors to buy at the hardware store for this to work. I just don't have a clue which 2 of the 6 to use. Thanks so much for your help. I think we might be on to something here.

Based on the model number that you provided (665.16059400), that original thermistor should have had a yellow/black and white wire connected to it. The wiring diagram for that model of dishwasher is shown in the image below. Based on your description, you may have a different model. That 6-wire harness plug normally connects to a combination thermistor and OWI (Optical Water Indicator). I recommend that you recheck that model number that is on the sticker around the opening to that dishwasher tub. Reply with a revised model number and additional details. We will try to assist you further once we receive more information.

66516029403. This is the correct model number. Thank you. I have been caught not checking myself for the number and trusting anothers information. I am very sorry for this seemingly easy task.......start with the right model number. I trusted I had the right one. Somehow I have a manual that says the wrong model number on it. How I have a manaul with an incorrect number on it, is probably just how it goes sometimes. So thanks for knowing your products so well.

Thanks for updating that model number. The dishwasher model 665.16029403 should use pump and motor part W10237169 and that original thermistor/OWI (part W10134017) should be okay and can be reinstalled. The best way to fix this problem would be to replace that pump and motor assembly 8535150 with the correct part and then reinstall the original thermistor/OWI sensor. The portion of the wiring diagram in the image below shows the connection for that OWI sensor on dishwasher model 665.16029403. If you try to just connect that thermistor, your control board will not get the signals from the OWI sensor even though it will detect the temperature. The control board will likely freeze up or not run the cycles correctly with that OWI sensor missing. You can check with the parts source where you purchased the original pump and motor assembly to see if you can return it. If you bought if from a Sears Repair Center or Sears PartsDirect.com, then they may make an exception and allow you to return that incorrect part. You may also be able to return that unused thermistor. If you need more help with that, let us know and we will try to assist you further. If you need more help with this repair, let us know. Thanks, Lyle.
