Would be easier to remove the dw form the cabinet , at least partially. Hopefully there is enough slack in the electrical line as well as water feed line. sometomes you can walk the d/w out woithout disconnecting them. the heating element can be unscrewed from underneath( 2 white lug screws mount them to the underneath of unit)..

Heating problem on dishwasher


Your dishwasher has an electrical heating element that helps to dry the dishes. If the element is burned out, the dishes won't dry properly, and you need to replace the element. To determine if the heating element is burned out, watch the part testing video at the bottom of this page.

MY Whirlpool 6ADP 5550 dishwasher does not heat the water or heat to dry the dishes. the soap dispenser does not open.


the probable causes may be either the heating element is bad or its not getting the required voltage testing the heating element if you can or have the necessary tools like an ohm meter to check the heating elements for continuity and from the control board if its getting the required voltage(110/120V) .this test will confirm the problem .this can be best done by a qualified technician if you dont have the necessary tools.if confirmed then you can replace the heating element if bad. hope this helps

Dishes won't dry. Is heating element the likely problem. Is it replaceable


What temp is your water? You may need to set your water heater up a notch. Try running the dishwasher on the "sani rinse" since this heats to 160 and see if they are drier. Is your heating element working? During the dry cycle with the heat dry on I would open the door and put my hand next to the element to see if it seemed hot. Maybe it isn't working. Also did you put Jet Dry in the dispenser?and also if the setting is adjustable you can dial it up a notch or two. I also like the Jet Dry Turbo. It makes my dishes dry completly, even plastics and this is on the no heat dry.

If there is no heat, then the heating element may be bad. You can get the part, and view diagram at partselect website.

Not drying. heating element bad? easy to change?


Check the heating element to see if it is bad. If you just order a heating element for it, it will come with an element and a new control board. That should take care of your problem. Remember use only powder detergent in your machine. No tabs and no gel.

Dishwasher Not Heating!!


Using a multi-meter check for continuity on the heating element, if element is good then check for continuity on the door switch, if this also checks out good then the heater relay located on the control board is likely gone, replace control board.
