Question about Kitchen Appliances - Others
Do I need to replace top heating element? Whirlpool was talking about a cleaner for corrosion. Do I need to replace the top heater element plus add the cleaner? Or will just the cleaner work?
SOURCE: I have a Whirlpool 30
It is not unusual for an element to fail when turned on after non-use.
Turn off the power, and check the electrical resistance of each element. If either is infinite, then it needs to be replaced. Also, if only one is bad, then it can cause the whole unit to malfunction and not heat the water.

You can buy these elements from Quartz Infrared, Inc. at their online store.
