Exactly, if the heater is not defective, please do not replace it. I am aware that the owners manual says that if you have the clean light to flash then the heating element may be defective. More times than not the heating element is not defective but the controls can be reset and you can send the unit through a diagnostic test to find out what may be defective.

It's a reverse screw, meaning to loosen it you have to turn it the opposite way you would loosen a regular screw.

Hi. i would test the element first. this will be the likely issue.

First, open the door
and look into the tub and locate the heating element (if it is covered, remove the lower dish rack and cover). The heating element has two terminals which extend through the bottom of the tub, note the general location where they go through.

To access the heating element's wiring, remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to reach the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel.

Look into the lower access area and locate where the terminals come through the tub. Each terminal has a wire connected to it. Label the wires and the terminals so that they can be properly reconnected. Pull the wire off of each terminal; they are connected with a slip on connector. Firmly pull the connector, do not pull on the wire. You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers. Inspect the connector and terminal for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced. Test the resistance of the heating element using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1 and touch one probe to each of the terminals. A normal reading will be somewhere between infinity and zero. The exact reading differs by manufacturer and model. If the indicator does not move (infinite resistance) or moves to the other extreme of the scale (zero resistance) then the element is damaged and should be replaced.

OUR KENMORE DISHWASHER MODEL #665.15912000 TIMER STALLS AT 43 MINUTES FOR AS LONG AS 30 MINUTES, AND THEN PROCEDES. OTHERWISE, EVERYTHING WORKS, AND THE DISHES COME OUT CLEAN.


Hello,

Your dishwasher is stalling while the water heats on the rinse cycle if the water is very hot the thermostat that must be satisfied for the water to reach the correct temp. is weak and it needs replacing. Or if the heat element is full of build up on the outside of it,it's taking so long to heat to temp.
