Q:

Fuse 66517263401 Kenmore Elite Dishwasher

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Yes, I agree. You must be careful so the leads or wire does not short to ground or it could take out the control board.

I'm happy you were able to safely confirm the thermal fuse was open. Generally speaking, the thermal fuse should be disconnected and tested with an Ohm meter for continuity.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Q:

Clean LED blinks 7 times, dishwasher will not go through a cycle. 66517263401 Kenmore Elite Dishwasher

A:

After double checking the wiring up to the control board I determined the problem must be there. However I couldn't see any visible arcing or corrosion until I removed the board from its housing. All points lead to the K2 relay which is part of the heating circuit. I tried to post a picture but was unable to. You can clearly see the burn marks on the other side of the board directly underneath the K2 relay. I'll be ordering a new board today. I hope my posts help others "summit their own K2." Good luck to all.

Thank you for your question.  I am sorry you are having a problem with your Kenmore 665.17263401 Dishwasher.  From the details you provide the dishwasher does not finish the cycle even though it fills with water, circulates and drains the water out.  If the dishwasher fills then I suspect the door switches and thermal fuse are okay.   The 2nd image contains  more information on the Clean LED blinking 7 times.  The control is not seeing a water heat rinse during the cycle.  The dishwasher will stall in a cycle and not advance while the water is being heated.   The light blinking usually means there is a water heat problem.  A simple test would be to select the Pots and Pan Cycle with the Hi Temp wash and Sani rinse cycle options selected.  During the cycle the water should be heated.  If the unit seems to stall in one part of the cycle then open the door and see how hot the water is.  No water heat can be caused by a bad element, hi-limit thermostat or control.    The diagnostic test can be ran also to pin the problem down.  The hi-limit thermostat can be bypassed to check if it is the problem.  At some point you might want to check voltage to the element during the cycle.  I hope this helps.  You can reply below with any additional details for further assistance.

Trouble again. After replacing the control board the washer ran for a week (about 7 cycles) until today. I selected a sani rinse and heated dry cycle and it stopped mid cycle after getting very hot. I checked the heater circuit and it is still 13 ohms (up to the door switch and control board). The thermal fuse has 2.9 mega ohm resistance but is not open. I have flipped the circuit breaker off twice and back on and still none of the LEDs light up. I cannot get it to go into diagnostic mode either. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Scott, if none of the LEDs light up then first check the thermal fuse. If the thermal fuse is open then there will be no power. The thermal fuse can be checked for continuity if a meter is available. There is a trick if no meter is available. Let me know if you have no meter and would likel to try this trick.

Fred, thanks for the reply. It is in fact a blown thermal fuse (it gave a 2.9 mega ohm reading with the meter). I was able to short the leads to the fuse with an insulated jumper wire and with the door switch in the closed position got the LEDs to come on. I cancelled the program (it remembered the part of the cycle it was in) to drain the water out of it and cut the power. I will be ordering a new fuse tonight. I would only recommend doing this if you are unconvinced the fuse is blown (mine did not look blown) and you are very careful. There is the potential for electrocuting oneself and possibly frying the control board. Thanks again for your help. Good luck to all. Scott.
