KitchenAid Dishwasher KUDS30IXWH4 will not turn on

7 posts in this topic

My dishwasher won't do anything, no power. I thought I would start by taking off the control panel to check the fuse. How do I take the panel off? Do I need to take all of the screews off? Please help.

 

thank you!

I have purchased the thermal fuse, but have a question before I install it. Any ideas what could have caused it to blow? I don't want ti install it and it is just gonna blow again. Something had to cause the fuse to blow, any suggestions what to check before replacing?

 

Thank you

The thermal cutoff (TCO) is a temperature sensitive control used for upper temperature limit protection. It is intended to open in the event that the control temperatures exceed the temperature setting of the TCO. It is a non-resettable device. In the event that the TCO has opened, replacing the TCO without determining the cause will result in the replacement TCO opening as well. The temperature control circuit should be analyzed for proper operation and corrected.

 

Wire harness connections may be the cause that some TCOs have opened. In this case, the harness connection must be replaced and installed using proper connection techniques. There are kits available for the various model lines that include the TCO and new harness connections. Using the correct fuse kit is essential for proper operation of the safety device. The kits have the necessary parts to protect each of the five specific dishwasher platforms. You must use the proper kit .
