I have replace this part twice on my dishwasher. The first one lasted 1yr and 5 months. The second one lasted 5 months. The second time I even replaced the complete harness. What is causing the fuse to blow after several months?
Answer Tony, a couple of things to check for. Make sure the power connections and wire nuts in the junction box on the front frame of the dishwasher are good and tight and properly polarized. Then check the connections at the heater element and hi limit thermostat. You didn't mention it, but do you experience brown outs or have power outages ?
The dishwasher lights blink but the machine will not work. Do you think it could be a fuse or the control panel?
Answer Hello Ed. Make sure the door switches are good. If so, you will need to order and replace the control panel on the unit. The fuse is good.
Timer starts at 88 minutes and will go down to 78 minutes and stops there. Also water will not drain

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.
