Why does my dishwashers thermal cut off fuse keep blowing?

I have a Kenmore Elite Dishwasher, approx 1 1/2 old, that keeps blowing its thermal cut off fuse. I have already replaced it 2 times. The model is 665.13929K010, and the serial # is F10309750.t The thermal fuse part # is W10195528. Does anyone have this same problem, or is this a common issue with this model? Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thank You.

When this happens the usual cause is a loose or bad connection and in some extreme cases the entire harness must be replaced. I believe there is a new and improved bi-metal for this model. The images below contain more information about this problem. try using the new and improved bi-metal W10258275. I hope this helps. God Luck.
