The water is not heating as the heating element has gone bad or a fuse has blown which is preventing heating element to turn on. To check the heating element you'll need to turn off the dishwasher, unplug it. After unplugging it check the heating element for mineral deposit on it, clean the deposits using a soft brush and a cleaning solution (Don't scrub the element hard). If this doesn't resolves the issue then remove the panel and examine all the wiring connections to the heating element. Now, use a multimeter and check for the resistance reading (ohms, Rx1) for the heating element. The multimeter should display between 1200-1600 ohms or 1.2K ohms. If it is less than 1200 then you'll need to get the heating element replaced. Also, check for any blown fuse around the element. This should resolve your issue. Hope this helps...

Hello there Here is a detailed list of things to check to ensure that the element is your problem cause there could be a couple of different things also click on the blue items
If the dry cycle has a problem, check these:Heating elementDrying fanThermostatHeating elementYour 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. Drying fanMany high-priced dishwashers have a small fan that blows air or heated air into the dishwasher to speed up the drying process. If the fan is defective, you need to replace it.ThermostatSome dishwashers have a thermostat that monitors the drying temperature. If the thermostat is defective, the heating element may not cycle on or off properly. If that's the problem, you need to replace the thermostat Best regards mike
Check with a multi-meter for voltage (220/115v) on heating element's tags.
If you can read this voltage on tags - you should replace the heating element
In case you can't read voltage on its tags, disconnect one of the wires from its tag (you should unplug first your machine's power cable!) and test for element's resistance - If you can read its resistance, you should replace the thermostat. In case of no resistance - you should replace element and thermostat
