Check for a light switch beside the sink that may control power to the dishwasher. If you find a light switch for the dishwasher and it is off, then it could be causing your problem. Also check the house circuit breaker for the dishwasher. If you find no problems with those issues, then you could have a blown thermal fuse (part 8193762) in the console. The procedure for replacing that fuse is shown in the first image below. The second image shows how to open the console on this type of dishwasher. I recommend that you

shut off the house circuit breaker

for the dishwasher and check that fuse for continuity. Here is a link for a brief video that shows how to test a thermal fuse using a volt/ohm meter:

. If that fuse is blown, you can order a new one from the

Sears PartsDirect

website. Use the information shown below to replace that component. Be sure that you have the

house circuit breaker for the dishwasher shut off

when accessing internal components.

If the thermal fuse is not blown, you could have a voltage supply problem, wiring failure or a bad electronic control board in the console.

If you need more help, reply with additional details.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:

We become very reliant on our dishwashers and when it does not complete the job we have to. While you wait for the expert to review this model you can check a previous post with a similar question if you wish that I attached below.
