My Repair & Advice
No power to dishwasher control panel? Shut off power for dishwasher at main breaker. Opened the dishwasher door just enough to access and remove the crosstip screws which hold the plastic front cover and control panel (keypad) in place . Once the cover is loose the back of the control panel can be accessed. There is a plastic cover over the circuit board that must be unsnapped and removed. Once removed the blown Thermo Fuse can be removed and tested. Test it by using a test meter and conducting a continuity test. If there is no conductivity it is blown. Replace the Thermo Fuse with a new one and make sure you use the new leads (harness) supplied with it. Failure to use the new leads containing a length of new wires and connectors will lead to premature failure of the new Thermo Fuse. Put the plastic circuit board cover back in place, snaps on, and postion the front cover and keyboard in place and secure it with the crosstip screws you removed earlier. Turn power on at the main breaker and check to verify you have power to the dishwasher control panel (keypad). If you do, job done!
