Does sound like the element is bad, confirm with a multimeter, should see 120v across the element terminals, if voltage is present check for continuity of the heating element with the power off, no continuity equals bad element.

These seem like the siemens/bosch type. There is a heater relay that can go bad. Its in the front panel. Check the relays in the front panel for bad solder or burn marks.

Heating element is white hot back by the connectors


the heating element is shorted to ground at that point and must be replaced.. it is not safe to use it this way.. usually that will trip a circuit breaker .. if it doesnt then you might want to have someone check to make sure the correct breaker is used (in your fuse box) ... if it hasnt already done so, that fault can damage the controller and seals where the heater goes thru the tub .. a new heater comes with new seals but not with the parts required to fix the controller if thats been damaged ..

Plastic fused to hearing element


There are many ways to approach this. I assume it has melted and wrapped around the heating element.

One thought is to use a pair of wire-cutters ( called "diagonals"), and cut it off piece by piece.

Another thought is to run the dishwasher with heat option on, let the dish get soft again and pull it off (wear gloves).

Whirlpool gx2500


clean light blinkn can be a number of things, ranging form bad heating element, possible bad door latch( not maintaining contact through cycle) motor and sensor could also cause this( but now changed they're ruled out.. in order to correct this issue, ive even had to rpelace the entire wiring harness to machine, i would advise you deal with an AUTHORIZED WHIRLPOOL servicer, so he can have the whirlpool techline assist in any future diagnosis, instead of just changing parts randoml.

Replace Heater Element for Whirlpool Model GU 1200XTLB1 Dishwashr


Look inside the dishwasher to see where the heating element terminals are. If they are in front you might be able to change it but if the element is in back, you will need to have the dishwasher pulled out to install the element.

HOTPOINT HDA3400 WILL NOT HEAT CYCLE


do you have a multimeter to check voltages?if so put the unit into the heat dry mode and see if you get voltage{im assuming its 110 volts}.if you have the voltage there then the heating element is bad.if theres no voltage then the timer is bad.how old is your unit?
