Hi Tim,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

In your details you state you did not replace the harness that comes with the fuse kit (see image below). That is most likely why the fuse blew again. The manufacturer redesigned the harness connections to keep the fuse from blowing. But to know for sure, you will need to ohm the main harness and the load bearing components (this includes the heating element). The remaining checks will require the use of a volt/ohm meter.

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 .

Here is a link that you may use to purchase the fuse kit for your Kenmore model number 665.17519201 dishwasher .

If you have a meter and are confident in your technical abilities please reply below and I will be happy to assist you further.

I have a multi-meter that i can check the resistance of components with. I am familiar with this kind of repair work and am comfortable installing any new parts.

A:

thermistor = 48.5k ohms => wire diagram says 48-52k ohms | Drain Pump = 23 ohms => diagram says 16.3 ohms | Heat Element 10 ohms => diagram says 10-35 ohms | dispenser 276 ohms => diagram says 280-340 ohms | vent assembly 1597 ohms => diagram says 600-1800 ohms | fill valve 1052 ohms => diagram says 890-1090 ohms | With the motor I am confused about wires there are 3 wires going to the motor a red with black stripe, a violet, and a green (ground). When I take off the clip the green connects to the casing; the violet connects to a small copper colored wire and a yellow wire (appears to go to capacitor); the red with black stripe connects to a black wire, finally a blue wire and a small black wire are connected next two the others but do not have a lead. With capacitor connected: between blue and yellow wires (15 ohms); between yellow and black (5.8 ohms); between black and blue (9.5 ohms). It is the same when i disconnect the capacitor. The wire diagram says " Run winding 3.7 ohms and Aux. winding 6.25 ohms". The drain pump seems a little bit off and I am not sure what to make of the motor readings. Any help is appreciated.

Tim,

The readings you have given me on the components are within normal limits (even the drain pump). I am still willing to blame this on the harness not being replaced. When you ohm the motor disconnect the wires and ohm on the motor connectors where the blue and black/red wires connect. You should read approximately 3.7 ohms. No matter how you ohm the motor if you go through the run and auxiliary windings you are going to read 9 + ohms.

I recommend replacing the entire thermal fuse kit. This should keep you from blowing the thermal fuse again.

I hope this is helpful, and if I may be of further assistance please include more details in a reply to this post.

I will replace the thermal fuse and follow the directions by clipping the old wires off. I will give an update in the near future.
