Kitchen aid dishwasher stopped in middle of cycle
My Kitchenaid dishwasher stopped in the middle of the cycle. The control panel does nothing, no lights either. There is still water in the tub. There is power to the machine as well.

If the machine gets too hot the thermal fuse (#6) on the control board will open. Check it for continuity with an ohmmeter. If it is open, check the heating circuit for any shorts or opens. Here's the one for your machine:

Rick, I checked the thermal fuse and it does have continuity. I will check the heating coil next, if this has continuity what else could the problem be? Thanks for your help, and by the way how hard is it to remove the heating coil?
