To: jumptrout51, whirlpooltech, AJ & JWWebster -  many thanks guys for the great info! It seemed there had to be a "fuse" somewhere but I had no idea where or what it could be.  I followed the link you gave me & ordered the fuse & new wires. When it gets here & I get them in I'll let yall know how it goes. 

Again, many thanks for all of your help - and thanks especially for this website!  God Bless yall!

Please check the existing fuse with a ohm meter. It should read open.

Evening, folks. I don't have an ohm meter so I didn't get the fuse checked (and I had already ordered the new one before the previous post). So, the new thermal fuse & wiring came today - got it installled and still nothing. No power, no lights. I hate to give up on this since I have $200-250 in it, but don't know what else to do. Gonna check w/ appliance parts place & see if I can return the parts - ?
Any suggestions?  Many thanks!

Are you sure you have power to the dishwasher?

Take a look in the junction box were the power cord connects to the dishwasher. A wire nut may have come lose or burnt off.

I would also take a look at the door switch's.
Hope you find our site helpful.

Hey guys - me again.

The wires are connected well - actually the way this place is wired the power cord comes out of the wall from an on/off switch and then I connect them below the dishwasher (yes, the switch is "on".)  So there is juice.

What switches do I check?

Thanks again!

TO:  AJ, Whirlpool Tech, et al:

It's with a somewhat reddened face that I must say please disregard my previous post. For some reason I didn't thoroughly check the wire connection. I only looked & pulled on the wire nuts to see if the wires were loose (they weren't).  Earlier tonight (just after the post) I hit the floor & took the wire nuts completely off and retightend them.  I then tripped the breaker & flipped the on/off switch to "on", and ....... the d/w took off & completed the cycle! 

So, to you guys - sorry I didn't completely follow your directions earlier.  Glad I did now. Many thanx, guys!  Appreciate your help & I'm going to spread the word for y'all (both by word of mouth and online). 

Thanx for your service!  Take good care & God Bless!
