Which post on the door latch does the live line attach and which post is connected to the Microtemp fuse?

Richard M. for Model Number KUDS25SHBLO

ANSWER Hi Richard. IN the control panel area or in the lower toe kick panel is a folded wiring diagram that will show you the correct way to re connect the new door latch. The house 120 vac supply is hooked up first to the junction box. then the Black wire (+ hot 120 vac wire) and the (-neutral White wire). White and black both then feed one side(go up to) of the door micro switch of the door latch assy. Then there are the other 2 black wires that hook up to the switch. The black wire goes to the side of the switch and then onto the fuse. The white wire hooks to the N.O.(normally open) terminal of the micro switch. This way all dishwashers will stop the power as you have the door open as a safety issue. This way the water is not slinging around as the electrics are being worked on. So- turn the breaker off first. Looking at thew wiring diagram directly;y...... The junction box black wire hooks to the fuse before the micro switch. Your model ids some what different then most common dishwashers discussed above. then from the other side of the fuse will be a double blk/wht wire which it will connect to the common ( C-terminal) of the micro switch on the door latch and the other wire extending to the P2-6 control board connection terminal. Then the tan wire hooks to the N.O. terminal of the micro switch. If your model # has a stainless steel inner tub, the white wire will not use a inner micro switch. The door latch assy. only has one micro switch. The white wire will extend from the junction box up to the control board and then from the harness directly connected to various devices. If the inner tub is a plastic tub, it will utilize 2-micro switches. The white/blue wire will come up from the junction box and then branch off to feed the common terminal (c) of the micro switch and then the white /blue will then go to the control board and all other devices. Door Latch part # 3380654. Thank You.
