Cycle stalls after wash cycle. Drain motor runs continually.
You will want to check to see if there is something in the pump or the drain line that is impeding it from being able to drain. If this checks ok and the drain pump is getting power then the drain pump is faulty and would need to be replaced.
How do I replace the high limit thermostat. I replaced the heat element and the dishwasher is still not drying. I have heard that this is most likely the culprit.
Answer Sarah, The hi limit thermostat 661566 is mounted to a bracket W10539489 and the bracket is mounted to the dishwasher tub frame. The bracket in made of spring steel and is forced onto the frame member and held there by tension, it also hold the thermostat against the bottom of the tub. The thermostat could be the culprit, but it's not as "finicky" as that, and there are a few other possibilities. The first check needs to be the water temperature in the tub, after the first fill of a cycle, the temperature needs to be at least 120 dgrs. if it isn't there will be probable drying issues. When you remove the kick plate to access the thermostat, you should find the tech data sheet in an envelope taped to the back of the plate or the front frame support. You can program the test mode and check to see if the heater is operating, and go from there.
