Question about Dishwashers
THE WATER ISNT HEATING UP???
SOURCE: dishwasher not heating
It could be a malfunction heating element, thermostat or both. In most cases it's the heating element. Check with a multi-meter for 115/220V on the heater tags. In case you get this voltage there, you should replace the heating element. In case you can't read the 115/220V on the heater tags, check thermostat's for continuity (you should read a low resistance). In case you can't get any measurement. You should replace the thermostat. Good luck

The dish washer shouldn't be heating the water in the first place. It get's the hot water from the water heater, check to see if you have hot water in the rest of the house. if so, reply.

Mine too displayed the same problem - not heating, therefore not cleaning or drying properly (door still cold 20 minutes into cycle). I've found that there is a common (yet not often talked about) issue with a point on the controllers circuit board. If you remove the controller (simple to get at), remove the circuit board from the controller and flip it over you will see a 'burnt' solder joint on one of the legs to a black box component - resolder that joint and all should be well. Don't pause or open the door during a cycle as this seems to cause the joint to blow.

the E3 error message tells you what you already know ..the water temp is not reaching its intended value ... that could be a bad temp sensor or the trouble could be the heating element itself or the electronics that power it ... the heating element can be tested with an ohm meter .. it should have low resistance (not open) ... if its good then i would suspect the electronic module that controls it or the heat sensor unit .. .. sure sounds like a design problem to me .. since there are a lot of these machine with the same trouble .. the factory seems to be having trouble fixing them .. they often give up and offer a new machine at a reduced price ..

you would have to turn the unit on it's side and remove the bottom plate and check with a multi meter the resistance of the heating element to see if the heating element is defective. i doubt the dishwashing liquid caused a fault other than causing the unit to over sud and spill water into the base. You could remove the panel under the door and have a look and see if you have flooded the base. if you have a float switch in the base (white polystyrene disc and switch) this will stop the unit from working as well. dry up any water and try it again. hope this helps and don't use the dishwashing liquid in the unit.
