Whirlpool has wire harness issue that when the unit is running and heating water the amp draw is so great it causes the wire harness at the thermal fuse /door switch area to get hot thus opening up the thermal fuse.

Whirlpool even has a service pointer out on the issue an a service kit that is a thermal fuse and part of a wire harness .

Would you like the thermal fuse service kit parts information?

If so please look at the model number once again !

md4949dh is NOT a good number.
