Can you clarify which I'm checking to 145 degrees? One of the answers say thermister, the other thermostat. Right not my thermostat is showing a closed circuit/continuity. The thermister is showing an open circuit/ no continuity. Also one answer says the thermister will read continuity at 145, the other answer says it should never read continuity. Sorry for my confusion on this. "The thermostat should read open until it reaches... more the temp on the side of about 145 degrees. If it is showing continuity then it is bad if not at the desired temp. The thermistor will always read resistance and you do not read continuity through it." "The thermister you should be checking should read open until it gets up to around 145°F or so. When it reaches the high temperature it is rated for, it should open and show full contact with no resistance."

Thanks for answering my earlier question. I just need to clarify a couple things you mentioned. "This should enable you to shoot through the circuit with an ohm meter. If it reads open from the control board, you will need to test each component individually." By open do you mean I should detect continuity through the circuit? . The thermister you should be checking should read open until it gets up to around 145°F or so. When it reaches the high temperature it is rated for, it should open and show full contact with no resistance" When testing the thermister, as temp goes up, resistence will go down until the point I see full continuity through the thermister? Right not my thermister does not show any continuity. Also, I replaced the control panel which houses the press buttons, and the error continued to occur. If everything else checks out, do I need to replace the circuit board located behind the push button control board? I really appreciate all of your help.

My dishwasher has the 7 blinking led light code indicating an issue with the heating system. I replaced the element as a precaution, the thermostat checked out ok, and last year I installed a new control panel. My thermister reads 43ohm at 74F. When I apply hot water to the thermister, the resistance goes down. I have reset the unit multiple times, but each time it stops roughly half way through the process. I'm at a loss as to what to try next. Please confirm that my themister testing is correct. Also, can you suggest what I try next? Thanks!

My whirlpool quiet partner 2 is flashing the code 7. I replaced th heating element, tried a new control panel, tested the thermostat. I'm down to checking the thermister. It shows 43 ohms at room temperature. When I run under hot water the ohm reading does down steadily. From what I've read the resistance should go up under heat. With my reading going down, does this mean my thermister is bad and causing the heating error code 7?

I have a blinking clean light. What should the resistance across the 8269208 thermistor read? The heating element and hi-limit thermistor appear to be fine.

My dishwasher won't heat the water and seems to run a loooong time. 2 hours. I checked the element and it tested good. I checked the thermister and it tested 39000 ohms. There are no blinking lights, and I had the dishwasher set at high temp wash, high temp rinse. the water never heated. What would be my next step?

I have a burned control board. In testing the thermistor on the 200K ohms scale, this tests at 60,800 ohms. Is this too high and should I replace it? I only tested it by pulling the wires off and in place, at room temperature without the machine having run for a couple days. Also, do I need to replace the heating element, which tested good (10.2 ohms) if I replace the control board with the latest model? (Factory says it is part # 8564543). I sure would appreciate your help, I can't get any answers out of the Whirlpool/Kitchenaid folks.

The rinse only and china crystals indicating lights are blinking on and off together. When I press cancel,now that light is flashing together with the other 2 indicating lights. These indicating light still keeps flashing when I even open the door. I read other forums they said that the thermal fuse maybe bad. I have tried find it taking the control panel cover off and exposing the control board. I see the 2 handle control micro switches and on the top of the control board there is a white module with 2 wires going to it. I king of lost please help thanks.

Hi, in troubleshooting my dishwasher today, I noticed that water seems to be leaking out through where the thermister goes in. Is it time to replace? Or is there an O-ring that can help?

The cleaning light flashes will not do any cycle. Could it be a thermister problem?
