Question about Dishwashers
Some units have an energy savings feature where it isn't used. If it is supposed to work using the settings that you commonly use then it may have failed. Turn off the power to the dishwasher. test the heating element with a continuity tester (though if it is blown you may see a hole blown in it's side). If the element has continuity and seems fine then the next logical spot to look would be the main controller inside the door. To get at that you have to undo all the screws on the door. Then look for either burned solder traces, melted connectors or wires etc. It could be a relay that is stuck in an open position. If that is the case sometimes a sharp hit to it will release it. If nothing obvious is found then only the main board if left to be at fault.
