I have a whirlpool dishwasher that stop working and a month later just started to work for a few months then stopped again. What is it that needs to be replaced the board or ome?
Answer Hello Mike. Based on the information you provided, if the unit does not light up or nothing, replace the board on the unit. If some buttons work but others do not then replace the control panel on the unit.
Dishwasher started then stopped, lost power to board. There's a little silver and black thing that goes in the gray clip on board power into it but not out of it and I have no idea what the part is.
The part that you are referring to would most likely be the thermal fuse W10258275. If the thermal fuse fails there will be no power going to the control board. You can test the thermal fuse for continuity. If there is no continuity then the thermal fuse is faulty and will need to be replaced.
