You guys helped me fix my dryer a week ago, now my dishwasher is broken. I'm having bad luck lately with my appliances. I'm hoping you will be able to help with this appliance as well. The dishwasher stopped in the middle of a cycle. The control pad is not responding and there are no lights. I pulled out the wiring diagram from under the dishwasher and I came across a suggestion to disconnect the keypad ribbon from the control circuit board. Then reassemble the panel and close the door.The next part of the instructions puzzle me. It says to disconnect and reconnect the thermister or OWI sensor two times in less than 6 seconds. Trouble is I have no idea where that is! Would you be able to tell me please? I have ordered a new bi metal thermal fuse from your site yesterday. I have a feeling though that it may not be the problem. I took the fuse out and tested it for continuity with my digital meter and it registered 0 which in my understanding means it is good. However when I replaced my cycling thermostat on my dryer it was registering continuity as well but it was still bad. So I don't trust the test. A dryer is one thing with its mechanical parts but the electronics on the dishwasher are annoying me. Any ideas what I can do?
ANSWER Hello John. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the thermal fuse W10258275 is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit.
