Major Appliances/Kenmore Elite Dishwasher



I am trying to repair a Kenmore elite DW model 665.17263402 The unit for all practical purposes is dead, no lights or control panel function.

I have power to the junction box, power to both sides of the thermal fuse, power in to the door switch on the right, but no power to the door switch on the left. Both door switches are functional and have continuity when they are closed. I can't seem to locate a wiring diagram and don't want to try and pull the unit out if I don't have to. Someone tiled over the original floor raising it approximately 1 inch and I'm not sure I could get the unit out without removing the floor tiles. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

On the control board you have a thermal fuse.  Have you checked this for continuity?  This thermal fuse is clipped to the frame of the electronic control...  Let me know what you find.  

Waiting to hear from you,
