    Default Fried Control Board

    Model Number: KUDP01FL
    Brand: KitchenAid
    Age: 1-5 years

    Hey Everyone,

    My sister's dishwasher has bit the dust. It all started last year when I fixed the door to the dishwasher, the door would fall to the ground. I repaired the rope and everything worked great for a couple loads and then the dishwasher wouldn't turn on anymore. I took the dishwasher apart and found that the control board had fried and looked like this: Click image for larger version.

    My question is, why the heck did it fry after I repaired the door? I didn't have to mess with anything electrical to repair the door.

    We ordered a new control board(Manufacturer Number 8564543), installed it and the dishwasher worked! For 1 load... I tested the fuse and found out it had blown. So knowing that something still isn't right, what is my next step? I traced the wire from the burnt terminal and it goes the the door latch. I want to find the cause of the short and I don't want to just blindly throw parts at it.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi Jon,

    I really don't know the cause of the control board getting that burnt terminal after you fixed the door balance issue.

    But I have seen the thermal fuse go bad on some right after the control board is replaced.

    You will need a new thermal fuse kit.

    Here's the thermal fuse kit for your model you can order here:

    Watch this video to replace it:



    You must use the wiring that comes with it, or it will keep going out!
