Dishwasher was not drying properly, then stopped running completely. I did a reset and it ran again once, now the rinse only is blinking. If I cut off the power and then turn it back on it has a "2" on the display and goes thru what sounds like a cancel/drain cycle, then back to rinse only flashing. The heating element and thermostat show continuity, the thermal fuse also shows continuity but appears to have been scorched, it also won't reset again.
Answer Bob, The issue is in the control panel / key pad assembly 8269464 . there's a faulty key pad circuit causing the control to remain in the rinse cycle. When you reset the control, it will operate one time. once it sees the faulty circuit again, the board will revert back to the failed mode. Once you replace the console, and reset the control, you should be fine.
Is There a reset somewhere ? I get no lights, no nothing.
Answer Tony, Unfortunately, No there is no reset circuits or switch. But you're on track, if you're sure you have 120 VAC to the dishwasher in the junction box, then the next step is to access the thermal fuse in the control console and check the fuse 8193762 for a "closed" circuit. You can also check for voltage in and out of the fuse, if you wish.
Hello! Five weeks ago the control board of my dishwasher (KitchenAid KUDP01FLSS2) was displaying a flashing light and was not operating. I changed out the control board, using the original thermal fuse, and all worked well for about 4 weeks. This time, the issue was the thermal fuse. I replaced it, but did not use the wires included with it, since the terminals of the existing wires fit perfectly on the poles of the new thermal fuse. The diswasher seemed to work perfectly, but it blew the thermal fuse again about 20 minutes into the wash cycle. I checked the thermostat, and it shows continuity. I also checked the heating element at the terminals (without removing it from the tub), and it shows continuity as well. Please advise your thoughts, as I have now blown the original fuse and a replacement fuse. I am concerned about installing and blowing a third fuse before diagnosing any other probable causes.
Answer Walter, you need to install the "complete" kit, including the wires. That's where the manufacturer traced the problem to. Also, since the heater and thermostat checks OK, you need to turn the power off, remove the junction box cover on the front frame and check the power supply wiring and wire nuts, for a good tight fit, and any weal or melted spots on the wires.
