Why did my Kenmore model 665.13732K601 dishwasher stop in the middle of a wash cycle and now has no power at all.

I checked the fuse for the power going to the dishwasher and the fuse did not blow so I'm wondering what else to check for this problem.

From the description you give I'm unclear which fuse you checked for this problem. If you meant the hose fuse is okay and there is voltage to the dishwasher then the next thing I suggest you check is the "thermal fuse" located in the console near the door switch.

When a Kenmore dishwasher suddenly stops working with no prior problems the most likely cause is an open thermal fuse. This is a part you can check and replace your self it you are comfortable with do-it-yourself projects.

The fuse is located in the console as shown in the image below. The images below show how to access the thermal fuse. Remember to turn the power off first.

If you have access to a volt/ohm meter you can check the fuse for continuity across the terminals. If the circuit is open then replace the fuse.

The W10258275 fuse can be obtained from the following ink:
