Kenmore Elite 66513789k603 dishwasher dispenser does not open during the wash cycle. Just installed a new dispenser but it still does not open. When we opened the dishwasher up to replace it, we noticed that the thin liner coverning the back of the dispenser was melted near the location of the plug (about a quarter size burn hole). What do I need to replace now?
Answer Hello Shana,
This indicates an over current situation which is caused by excessive resistance in the circuit. Trace and check for problems in the harness and replace the terminals on the end of the wires if necessary. The dispenser W10195172 will have to be replaced again, this can be done under the part warranty if purchased from appliancepartspros.com within the past 365 days. The control W10084141 may also require replacement since the power supply on the board can be damaged from excessive current flow. This output can be tested using the time chart to determine the time the circuit will be energized and the wiring diagram which shows the dispenser is attached to pins P11-8 and P11-10 on the board. All of this is laid out on the tech sheet to include the wiring diagram. The tech sheet is located in a plastic bag on the back of the kick panel.
