when you replaced the Thermal Fuse,

did you follow the instructions and use the included wires ?

No I did not. Should I have to?  Only reason why I'm asking is that I thought I just had to replace the thermal fuse itself not replace all wiring.  But if I have too I will.  I bought a spare thermal fuse just in case!

Yes, one of the challenges with that thermal fuse was the wires over heating and causing the fuses to blow. Always follow the instruction provided with replacement appliance parts.
"Suds are not good"
"They write directions for a reason"
"Make sure you're using it right before you say it's not working correctly"
"If if has a Diagnostic Test Cycle, Run it before and after you fix it!"

Reg is right. Change the wires and you will be good to go.

Kicks major Samsung booty first, asks diagnostic questions later.
