my dishwasher control button seem to be working intermittently if they work at all. mostly the normal wash and most importantly the start button. I suspect the control panel. what do you think?
Answer GW, We Agree, your issue is in the keypad / control panel assembly W10175347, You'll probably find that you use the normal wash on, and the start keypads most often, and the circuit has become weak and started to fail.
The Thermal Fuse (W10258275) failed. The heating element and the thermostat both checked out fine. What else may have caused the fuse to fail?
Answer Jon, A voltage issue (low or high "spike" could cause an issue. Also check and make sure the connections inside the junction box of the dishwasher are good and tight. And of course there is the basic age of the part. As long as there's power to the dishwasher the fuse is active and carrying voltage.
