The dishwasher wouldn't start so I put a new fuse (Part Number 8193762), and it started up again, but blew the new fuse already during the first load. Could it be the control board (hopefully not!!) be causing this?

Someone, not naming any names, did not follow the instructions and use the wiring harness that came with the kit. :whistling:

Oh, OK, thank you. I saw the wiring harness with the fuse but I thought it was just for use in special situations, because the old terminals fit so well. If you don't mind, could you possibly explain why the fuse blew and why it is necessary to replace the harness?

OK, so, does that extra wiring cause the fuse to conduct less heat even though the fuse is mounted on the control board as shown in the repair clinic video? I must be missing something about what the new wiring harness is doing. Thanks for your help.

The purpose of the new wiring harness is to eliminate the loose electrical connections that overheated and caused the fuse to go out in the first place. Additional lengths of wire are included in anticipation that several inches of the existing wire may be charred and unusable and may need to be removed and replaced with new wire. Get the new kit and follow the instructions to the letter this time and all will be well with your world ==> http://www.repaircli.../8193762/959376

The key is the actual terminals - and corrosion etc that develops inside them is not addressed if you don't change the wires. The fuse itself can open due to ambient heat or the actual current it is carrying - if you replace all of the parts in the kit you have at least eliminated the heat of the loose/corroded terminals as the cause.

Thanks, I admit I did not realize this and really appreciate everyone enlightening me. I always like to know why I screwed up in detail. ;) Domos!
